PACCAR'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 PACCAR.

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

PACCAR's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 33.96

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and PACCAR's overall score of 33.96 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty weak – landing it in it in the 73rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

PACCAR's environmental score

Environmental score: 9.32/100

PACCAR's environmental score of 9.32 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that PACCAR is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

PACCAR's social score

Social score: 16.26/100

PACCAR's social score of 16.26 puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that PACCAR is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

PACCAR's governance score

Governance score: 7.38/100

PACCAR's governance score puts it squarely in the 2nd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that PACCAR is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

PACCAR's controversy score

Controversy score: 3/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. PACCAR scored a 3 out of 5 for controversy – a middle-of-the-table result reflecting that PACCAR hasn't always managed to keep its nose clean.

PACCAR share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 38% of net profits

Recently PACCAR has paid out, on average, around 38% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.43% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), PACCAR shareholders could enjoy a 1.43% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In PACCAR's case, that would currently equate to about $0.96 per share.

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

PACCAR's most recent dividend payout was on 7 June 2023. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 16 May 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have PACCAR's shares ever split?

PACCAR's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 8 February 2023. So if you had owned 2 shares the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 3 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your PACCAR shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for PACCAR shares which in turn could have impacted PACCAR's share price.

PACCAR share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, PACCAR's shares have ranged in value from as little as $49.2441 up to $76.4515. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PCAR.US volatility(beta: 0.93)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NASDAQ average) beta is 1, while PACCAR's is 0.9296. This would suggest that PACCAR's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
