NOV's environmental, social and governance track record
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 NOV.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
NOV's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 38.8
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and NOV's overall score of 38.8 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 80th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like NOV 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.).
NOV's environmental score
Environmental score: 20.61/100
NOV's environmental score of 20.61 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NOV is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
NOV's social score
Social score: 19.23/100
NOV's social score of 19.23 puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that NOV is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
NOV's governance score
Governance score: 13.96/100
NOV's governance score puts it squarely in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that NOV is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
NOV's controversy score
Controversy score: 1/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. NOV scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that NOV has managed to keep its nose clean.
NOV share dividends
We're not expecting NOV to pay a dividend over the next 12 months.
Have NOV's shares ever split?
NOV's shares were split on a 1109:1000 basis on 2 June 2014. So if you had owned 1000 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 1109 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your NOV shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 9.8% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for NOV shares which in turn could have impacted NOV's share price.
NOV share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, NOV's shares have ranged in value from as little as $11.4329 up to $24.0031. 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 NOV's is 1.9098. This would suggest that NOV's shares are more volatile than the average for this exchange and represent, relatively-speaking, a higher risk (but potentially also market-beating returns).
