ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Cimarex Energy 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.).

Cimarex Energy's social score

Social score: 18.23/100

Cimarex Energy's social score of 18.23 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Cimarex Energy is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Cimarex Energy share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 19.76% of net profits

Recently Cimarex Energy has paid out, on average, around 19.76% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.24% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Cimarex Energy shareholders could enjoy a 1.24% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Cimarex Energy's case, that would currently equate to about $0.98 per share.

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

Cimarex Energy's most recent dividend payout was on 1 September 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 12 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
