Infosys'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 Infosys.
When it comes to ESG scores, lower is better, and lower scores are generally associated with lower risk for would-be investors.
Infosys's total ESG risk score
Total ESG risk: 20.04
Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Infosys's overall score of 20.04 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 13rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.
ESG scores are increasingly used to estimate the level of risk a company like Infosys 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.).
Infosys's environmental score
Environmental score: 4.57/100
Infosys's environmental score of 4.57 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Infosys is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Infosys's social score
Social score: 12.93/100
Infosys's social score of 12.93 puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Infosys is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.
Infosys's governance score
Governance score: 11.54/100
Infosys's governance score puts it squarely in the 7th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Infosys is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.
Infosys's controversy score
Controversy score: 2/5
ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. Infosys scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that Infosys has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.
Infosys share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 112.44% of net profits
Recently Infosys has paid out, on average, around 112.44% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 1.55% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Infosys shareholders could enjoy a 1.55% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Infosys's case, that would currently equate to about INR0.4 per share.
Infosys'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 25 October 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Have Infosys's shares ever split?
Infosys's shares were split on a 2:1 basis on 3 September 2018. 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 Infosys shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 50% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Infosys shares which in turn could have impacted Infosys's share price.
Infosys share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Infosys's shares have ranged in value from as little as INR1207.1559 up to INR1953.9. 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 (NSE average) beta is 1, while Infosys's is 0.6469. This would suggest that Infosys's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
