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

Emerson Electric Company's total ESG risk score

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Emerson Electric Company's overall score of 36.82 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 65th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Emerson Electric Company's environmental score

Environmental score: 13.55/100

Emerson Electric Company's environmental score of 13.55 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Emerson Electric Company is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Emerson Electric Company's social score

Social score: 17.67/100

Emerson Electric Company's social score of 17.67 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Emerson Electric Company is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Emerson Electric Company's governance score

Governance score: 14.11/100

Emerson Electric Company's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Emerson Electric Company is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Emerson Electric Company's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Emerson Electric Company scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Emerson Electric Company has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

Emerson Electric Company share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 43.78% of net profits

Recently Emerson Electric Company has paid out, on average, around 43.78% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Emerson Electric Company shareholders could enjoy a 2.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Emerson Electric Company's case, that would currently equate to about $2.07 per share.

While Emerson Electric Company's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Emerson Electric Company may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.

Emerson Electric Company's most recent dividend payout was on 9 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 11 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Emerson Electric Company's shares ever split?

Emerson Electric Company's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 12 December 2006. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 2 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Emerson Electric Company shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Emerson Electric Company shares which in turn could have impacted Emerson Electric Company's share price.

Emerson Electric Company share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Emerson Electric Company's shares have ranged in value from as little as $71.1106 up to $98.4338. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

EMR.US volatility(beta: 1.39)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Emerson Electric Company's is 1.3906. This would suggest that Emerson Electric Company's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
