That's relatively high compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The high P/E ratio could mean that investors are optimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're over-valued.

Quanta Services'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 Quanta Services.

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

Quanta Services's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 38.4

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Quanta Services's overall score of 38.4 (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 Quanta Services 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.).

Quanta Services's environmental score

Environmental score: 8.57/100

Quanta Services's environmental score of 8.57 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Quanta Services is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Quanta Services's social score

Social score: 14.99/100

Quanta Services's social score of 14.99 puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Quanta Services is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Quanta Services's governance score

Governance score: 12.35/100

Quanta Services's governance score puts it squarely in the 3rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Quanta Services is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Quanta Services's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Quanta Services scored a 1 out of 5 for controversy – the highest score possible, reflecting that Quanta Services has managed to keep its nose clean.

Quanta Services share dividends

5%

Dividend payout ratio: 4.77% of net profits

Recently Quanta Services has paid out, on average, around 4.77% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.25% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Quanta Services shareholders could enjoy a 0.25% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Quanta Services's case, that would currently equate to about $0.26 per share.

While Quanta Services's payout ratio might seem low, this can signify that Quanta Services is investing more in its future growth.

Quanta Services's most recent dividend payout was on 18 April 2022. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 8 April 2022 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Quanta Services's shares ever split?

Quanta Services's shares were split on a 3:2 basis on 10 April 2000. 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 Quanta Services shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 33.3% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Quanta Services shares which in turn could have impacted Quanta Services's share price.

Quanta Services share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Quanta Services's shares have ranged in value from as little as $84.2593 up to $140.04. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

PWR.US volatility(beta: 1.19)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 Quanta Services's is 1.1929. This would suggest that Quanta Services'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).
