This chapter empirically explores Oil and Gas sector, trying to investigate the effect of ESG Scores on (1) Cost of equity (COE) and (2) Firm’s profitability (FP) for a sample of operating firms. We focus on a panel of data composed of more than 100 public firms, from 2002 to 2018/2019, and the main variables of interest are (1) The Implied Cost of Equity and (2) Return on Assets (ROA). We propose a dichotomic analysis with different aims of research: in the first analysis we try to estimate the firms’ ex-ante cost of equity adopting Easton Model, which expresses the share price in terms of one-year-ahead expected dividend per share and one- and two-year-ahead expected earnings per share. For the second analysis instead, we consider Return on Assets as a proxy for a firm’s profitability.

Abstract

This chapter empirically explores Oil and Gas sector, trying to investigate the effect of ESG Scores on (1) Cost of equity (COE) and (2) Firm’s profitability (FP) for a sample of operating firms. We focus on a panel of data composed of more than 100 public firms, from 2002 to 2018/2019, and the main variables of interest are (1) The Implied Cost of Equity and (2) Return on Assets (ROA). We propose a dichotomic analysis with different aims of research: in the first analysis we try to estimate the firms’ ex-ante cost of equity adopting Easton Model, which expresses the share price in terms of one-year-ahead expected dividend per share and one- and two-year-ahead expected earnings per share. For the second analysis instead, we consider Return on Assets as a proxy for a firm’s profitability.
