Background on IBD’s 100 Best ESG Companies

All of IBD’s Best 100 ESG Companies of 2021 mix profitability with ethical and social responsibility. To come up with this list, IBD first screened Dow Jones’ ESG ratings, which included more than 6,000 companies. The research team looked for the top 15% of the 2,360 companies whose stock price was $10 or higher and are investable in the United States. Then they screened for companies with IBD Composite Ratings of 85 or better, reflecting broad strength in fundamental and technical areas linked to stock price performance. Finally, the team ranked them by Dow Jones’ ESG Ratings. To break the tie at 100 companies, the research team looked at Relative Strength Ratings and Earnings Per Share Ratings, an IBD measure of earnings growth compared with other publicly traded companies. All data from IBD and Dow Jones were as of 8/31/2021.
