Environmental, social and governance (known as ESG) criteria are a set of three factors used to measure the sustainability and social impact of companies like Illinois Tool Works.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Total ESG risk: 24.97
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Illinois Tool Works's overall score of 24.97 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 27th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Illinois Tool Works 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.).
Environmental score: 11.24/100
Illinois Tool Works's environmental score of 11.24 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Illinois Tool Works is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 13.29/100
Illinois Tool Works's social score of 13.29 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Illinois Tool Works is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 12.95/100
Illinois Tool Works's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Illinois Tool Works is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Illinois Tool Works scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Illinois Tool Works has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Dividend payout ratio: 60.1% of net profits
Recently Illinois Tool Works has paid out, on average, around 60.1% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.69% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Illinois Tool Works shareholders could enjoy a 2.69% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Illinois Tool Works's case, that would currently equate to about $4.8 per share.
Illinois Tool Works's payout ratio would broadly be considered high, and as such this stock could appeal to those looking to generate an income. Bear in mind however that companies should normally also look to re-invest a decent amount of net profits to ensure future growth.
Illinois Tool Works's most recent dividend payout was on 14 July 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 29 June 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").
Illinois Tool Works's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 26 May 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 Illinois Tool Works shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Illinois Tool Works shares which in turn could have impacted Illinois Tool Works's share price.
Over the last 12 months, Illinois Tool Works's shares have ranged in value from as little as $177.33 up to $248.4177. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".
Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Illinois Tool Works's is 1.0767. This would suggest that Illinois Tool Works'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).
