HCL Technologies'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 HCL Technologies.

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

HCL Technologies's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 22.92

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and HCL Technologies's overall score of 22.92 (as at 01/01/2019) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 24th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

HCL Technologies's environmental score

Environmental score: 4.02/100

HCL Technologies's environmental score of 4.02 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that HCL Technologies is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

HCL Technologies's social score

Social score: 16.31/100

HCL Technologies's social score of 16.31 puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that HCL Technologies is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

HCL Technologies's governance score

Governance score: 5.59/100

HCL Technologies's governance score puts it squarely in the 4th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that HCL Technologies is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

HCL Technologies's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

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

HCL Technologies share dividends


Dividend payout ratio: 89.9% of net profits

Recently HCL Technologies has paid out, on average, around 89.9% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.4% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), HCL Technologies shareholders could enjoy a 4.4% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In HCL Technologies's case, that would currently equate to about INR0.586 per share.

HCL Technologies'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.

The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 19 January 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have HCL Technologies's shares ever split?

HCL Technologies's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 5 December 2019. 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 HCL Technologies shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for HCL Technologies shares which in turn could have impacted HCL Technologies's share price.

HCL Technologies share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, HCL Technologies's shares have ranged in value from as little as INR851.3022 up to INR1156.65. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

HCLTECH.NSE volatility(beta: 0.71)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NSE average) beta is 1, while HCL Technologies's is 0.7088. This would suggest that HCL Technologies's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
