Shoprite'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 Shoprite.

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

Shoprite's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 28.02

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Shoprite's overall score of 28.02 (as at 12/31/2018) is pretty good – landing it in it in the 37th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Shoprite's environmental score

Environmental score: 7.29/100

Shoprite's environmental score of 7.29 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Shoprite is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Shoprite's social score

Social score: 12.2/100

Shoprite's social score of 12.2 puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Shoprite is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Shoprite's governance score

Governance score: 10.52/100

Shoprite's governance score puts it squarely in the 5th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Shoprite is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Shoprite's controversy score

Controversy score: 2/5

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

Shoprite share dividends

49%

Dividend payout ratio: 49.28% of net profits

Recently Shoprite has paid out, on average, around 49.28% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 2.98% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Shoprite shareholders could enjoy a 2.98% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Shoprite's case, that would currently equate to about R5.44 per share.

While Shoprite's payout ratio might seem fairly standard, it's worth remembering that Shoprite 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 28 September 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Shoprite's shares ever split?

Shoprite's shares were split on a 10:1 basis on 8 December 1996. So if you had owned 1 share the day before before the split, the next day you'd have owned 10 shares. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Shoprite shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 90% lower share price could have impacted the market appetite for Shoprite shares which in turn could have impacted Shoprite's share price.

Shoprite share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Shoprite's shares have ranged in value from as little as R12066.2648 up to R18775.529. 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 (JSE average) beta is 1, while Shoprite's is 0.0965. This would suggest that Shoprite's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
