Dexus'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 Dexus.

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

Dexus's total ESG risk score

Total ESG risk: 15.31

Socially conscious investors use ESG scores to screen how an investment aligns with their worldview, and Dexus's overall score of 15.31 (as at 12/31/2018) is excellent – landing it in it in the 8th percentile of companies rated in the same sector.

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

Dexus's environmental score

Environmental score: 8.26/100

Dexus's environmental score of 8.26 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dexus is a leader in its sector terms of its environmental impact, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dexus's social score

Social score: 7.75/100

Dexus's social score of 7.75 puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. This could suggest that Dexus is a leader in its sector when it comes to taking good care of its workforce and the communities it impacts.

Dexus's governance score

Governance score: 7.79/100

Dexus's governance score puts it squarely in the 9th percentile of companies rated in the same sector. That could suggest that Dexus is a leader in its sector when it comes to responsible management and strategy, and exposed to a lower level of risk.

Dexus's controversy score

Controversy score: 1/5

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

Dexus share dividends

70%

Dividend payout ratio: 70.05% of net profits

Recently Dexus has paid out, on average, around 70.05% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 7.06% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Dexus shareholders could enjoy a 7.06% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Dexus's case, that would currently equate to about A$0.503 per share.

Dexus'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 27 December 2023 (the "ex-dividend date").

Have Dexus's shares ever split?

Dexus's shares were split on a 1:6 basis on 4 November 2014. So if you had owned 6 shares the day before the split, the next day you would own 1 share. This wouldn't directly have changed the overall worth of your Dexus shares – just the quantity. However, indirectly, the new 500% higher share price could have impacted the market appetite for Dexus shares which in turn could have impacted Dexus's share price.

Dexus share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Dexus's shares have ranged in value from as little as $6.0852 up to $8.046. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

DXS.AU volatility(beta: 0.74)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (AU average) beta is 1, while Dexus's is 0.737. This would suggest that Dexus's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
