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.).

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.

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.
