Is it a good time to buy Amcor stock?

The technical analysis gauge below displays real-time ratings for the timeframes you select. However, this is not a recommendation. It represents a technical analysis based on the most popular technical indicators: Moving Averages, Oscillators and Pivots. Finder might not concur and takes no responsibility.

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 PEG ratio

Amcor's "price/earnings-to-growth ratio" can be calculated by dividing its P/E ratio by its growth – to give 7.5819. A low ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer better value, while a higher ratio can be interpreted as meaning the shares offer worse value.

The PEG ratio provides a broader view than just the P/E ratio, as it gives more insight into Amcor's future profitability. By accounting for growth, it could also help you if you're comparing the share prices of multiple high-growth companies.

Amcor's EBITDA

Amcor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is US$1.8 billion (£1.5 billion).

The EBITDA is a measure of a Amcor's overall financial performance and is widely used to measure stock profitability.

Amcor share price volatility

Over the last 12 months, Amcor's shares have ranged in value from as little as US$8.2233 up to US$10.5544. A popular way to gauge a stock's volatility is its "beta".

AMCR.US volatility(beta: 0.84)Avg. volatility(beta: 1.00)LowHigh

Beta measures a share's volatility in relation to the market. The market (NYSE average) beta is 1, while Amcor's is 0.844. This would suggest that Amcor's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).

Amcor share dividends

72%

Dividend payout ratio: 71.74% of net profits

Recently Amcor has paid out, on average, around 71.74% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 5.62% 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 5.62% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Amcor's case, that would currently equate to about $0.495 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 18 March 2024. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 26 February 2024 (the "ex-dividend date").
