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

Dollarama's environmental score

Environmental score: 6.05/100

Dollarama's environmental score of 6.05 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dollarama is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dollarama share dividends

9%

Dividend payout ratio: 8.6% of net profits

Recently Dollarama has paid out, on average, around 8.6% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.26% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dollarama shareholders could enjoy a 0.26% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dollarama's case, that would currently equate to about C$0.211 per share.

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

Dollarama's most recent dividend payout was on 3 November 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 5 October 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Dollarama's shares ever split?

Dollarama's shares were split on a 3:1 basis on 19 June 2018. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dollarama shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 66.7% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dollarama shares which in turn could have impacted Dollarama's share price.

Dollarama share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dollarama's shares have ranged in value from as little as C$54.1296 up to C$83.8948. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DOL.TO volatility(beta: 0.77)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh
