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

Herbalife Nutrition's environmental score

Environmental score: 14/100

We're not expecting Herbalife Nutrition to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.

Have Herbalife Nutrition's shares ever split?

Herbalife Nutrition's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 14 May 2018. 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 Herbalife Nutrition shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Herbalife Nutrition shares which in turn could have impacted Herbalife Nutrition's share price.

Herbalife Nutrition share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Herbalife Nutrition's shares have ranged in value from as little as $36.52 up to $59. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HLF.US volatility(beta: 1.09)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 Herbalife Nutrition's is 1.0892. This would suggest that Herbalife Nutrition's shares are a little bit more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a slightly higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
