ST Engineering'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 ST Engineering.

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

ST Engineering's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 29.22

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and ST Engineering's overall score of 29.22 (as at 12/31/2018) is nothing to write home about – landing it in it in the 53rd percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

ST Engineering's environmental score

Environmental score: 3.79/100

ST Engineering's environmental score of 3.79 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ST Engineering is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

ST Engineering's social score

Social score: 11.85/100

ST Engineering's social score of 11.85 puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that ST Engineering is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

ST Engineering's governance score

Governance score: 5.58/100

ST Engineering's governance score puts it squarely in the 1st percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that ST Engineering is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

ST Engineering's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

ESG scores also evaluate any incidences of controversy that a company has been involved in. ST Engineering scored a 2 out of 5 for controversy – the second-highest score possible, reflecting that ST Engineering has, for the most part, managed to keep its nose clean.

ST Engineering share dividends

84%

Dividend payout ratio: 83.94% of net profits

Recently ST Engineering has paid out, on average, around 83.94% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.84% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), ST Engineering shareholders could enjoy a 3.84% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In ST Engineering's case, that would currently equate to about S$0.15 per share.

ST Engineering'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 18 August 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

ST Engineering share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, ST Engineering's shares have ranged in value from as little as S$3.3409 up to S$4.0483. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

S63.SG volatility(beta: 0.62)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta is a measure of a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (SG average) beta is 1, while ST Engineering's is 0.6151. This would suggest that ST Engineering's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
