When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.

ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Chesapeake Energy Corporation is exposed to within the areas of "environmental" (carbon footprint, resource use etc.), "social" (health and safety, human rights etc.), and "governance" (anti-corruption, tax transparency etc.).

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's environmental score

Environmental score: 18.19/100

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's environmental score of 18.19 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Chesapeake Energy Corporation is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's social score

Social score: 12.95/100

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's social score of 12.95 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Chesapeake Energy Corporation is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 4.19% of net profits

Recently Chesapeake Energy Corporation has paid out, on average, around 4.19% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.5% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Chesapeake Energy Corporation shareholders could enjoy a 2.5% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Chesapeake Energy Corporation's case, that would currently equate to about $0.688 per share.

While Chesapeake Energy Corporation's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Chesapeake Energy Corporation is investing more in its future growth.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's most recent dividend payout was on 9 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 23 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Chesapeake Energy Corporation's shares ever split?

Chesapeake Energy Corporation's shares were split on a 1:200 basis on 15 April 2020. So if you had owned 200 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 19900% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Chesapeake Energy Corporation shares which in turn could have impacted Chesapeake Energy Corporation's share price.

Chesapeake Energy Corporation share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Chesapeake Energy Corporation's shares have ranged in value from as little as $39.1863 up to $73.66. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

CHK.US volatility(beta: 1.89)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while Chesapeake Energy Corporation's is 1.8911. This would suggest that Chesapeake Energy Corporation's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
