Is Amcor under- or over-valued?
Valuing Amcor stock is incredibly difficult, and any metric has to be viewed as part of a bigger picture of Amcor's overall performance. However, analysts commonly use some key metrics to help gauge the value of a stock.
Amcor's P/E ratio
Amcor's current share price divided by its per-share earnings (EPS) over a 12-month period gives a "trailing price/earnings ratio" of roughly 20x. In other words, Amcor shares trade at around 20x recent earnings.
That's relatively low compared to, say, the trailing 12-month P/E ratio for the NASDAQ 100 at the end of 2019 (27.29). The low P/E ratio could mean that investors are pessimistic about the outlook for the shares or simply that they're under-valued.
Amcor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$2.1 billion (£1.5 billion).
The EBITDA is a measure of a Amcor's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure a its profitability.
|Revenue TTM||US$13.2 billion|
|Operating margin TTM||11.08%|
|Gross profit TTM||US$2.7 billion|
|Return on assets TTM||5.45%|
|Return on equity TTM||20.19%|
|Market capitalisation||US$19 billion|

Amcor share dividends
Dividend payout ratio: 61.93% of net profits
Recently Amcor has paid out, on average, around 61.93% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 3.91% of the current stock value. This means that over a year, based on recent payouts (which are sadly no guarantee of future payouts), Amcor shareholders could enjoy a 3.91% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Amcor's case, that would currently equate to about $0.472 per share.
Amcor'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.
Amcor's most recent dividend payout was on 13 December 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 22 November 2021 (the "ex-dividend date").
Amcor share price volatility
Over the last 12 months, Amcor's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$10.0311 up to US$12.6714. 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 (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Amcor's is 0.43. This would suggest that Amcor's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
