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 Kerry Group.
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: 27.23
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Kerry Group's overall score of 27.23 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 39th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Kerry Group 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: 9.77/100
Kerry Group's environmental score of 9.77 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Kerry Group is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Social score: 12.84/100
Kerry Group's social score of 12.84 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Kerry Group is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Governance score: 7.13/100
Kerry Group's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Kerry Group 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. Kerry Group scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Kerry Group has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Dividend payout ratio: 27.01% of net profits
Recently Kerry Group has paid out, on average, around 27.01% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 0.78% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Kerry Group shareholders could enjoy a 0.78% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Kerry Group's case, that would currently equate to about €0.891 per share.
While Kerry Group's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Kerry Group may be investing much of the rest of its net profits in future growth.
The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 13 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Over the last 12 months, Kerry Group's shares have ranged in value from as little as €96.2812 up to €129.6843. 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 (IR average) beta is 1, while Kerry Group's is 0.4367. This would suggest that Kerry Group's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
