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 21x. In other words, Amcor shares trade at around 21x 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

Amcor's EBITDA (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortisation) is $2 billion.

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

Shorting Amcor shares

There are currently 43.4 million Amcor shares held short by investors – that's known as Amcor's "short interest". This figure is 10.7% down from 48.6 million last month.

There are a few different ways that this level of interest in shorting Amcor shares can be evaluated.

Amcor's "short interest ratio" (SIR)

Amcor's "short interest ratio" (SIR) is the quantity of Amcor shares currently shorted divided by the average quantity of Amcor shares traded daily (recently around 5.5 million). Amcor's SIR currently stands at 7.89. In other words for every 100,000 Amcor shares traded daily on the market, roughly 7890 shares are currently held short.

However Amcor's short interest can also be evaluated against the total number of Amcor shares, or, against the total number of tradable Amcor shares (the shares that aren't held by "insiders" or major long-term shareholders – also known as the "float"). In this case Amcor's short interest could be expressed as 0.03% of the outstanding shares (for every 100,000 Amcor shares in existence, roughly 30 shares are currently held short) or 0.0283% of the tradable shares (for every 100,000 tradable Amcor shares, roughly 28 shares are currently held short).

A SIR below 10% would generally be considered to indicate a fairly optimistic outlook for the share price, with fewer people currently willing to bet against Amcor.

Amcor share dividends

66%

Dividend payout ratio: 65.85% of net profits

Recently Amcor has paid out, on average, around 65.85% of net profits as dividends. That has enabled analysts to estimate a "forward annual dividend yield" of 4.09% 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 4.09% return on their shares, in the form of dividend payments. In Amcor's case, that would currently equate to about $0.468 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 14 June 2021. The latest dividend was paid out to all shareholders who bought their shares by 24 May 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 $9.91 up to $12.6339. 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 0.4213. This would suggest that Amcor's shares are less volatile than average (for this exchange).
