Amcor Is Reasonably Valued:
Compared to the Industrials sector's average of 20.49, Amcor has a trailing twelve month P/E ratio of 15.42 and, according to its EPS guidance of 0.82, an expected P/E ratio of 13.35. Amcor's PEG ratio is 0.55 based on its 28.25% annual average growth rate of historical and projected earnings per share. However, we believe that it is more prudent to calculate the PEG ratio using the broader market's 5-year expected EPS growth rate of 13.05%, because the growth rate implied by Amcor's past and expected EPS is probably not sustainable. This more prudent approach shows a PEG ratio of 1.18, which implies that the company's shares might in fact be fairly valued.
Amcor's P/B ratio is 4.743 compared to its sector average of 3.78. The company is likely overvalued in terms of its equity. The company's shares are currently trading 96.59% above their fair value as expressed by Benjamin Graham's formula:
√(22.5 * 4-year average EPS * book value per share) = √(22.5 * 0.47 * 2.934) = $5.57
Amcor's elevated P/B ratio notwithstanding, the company's strong cash flows, decent earnings multiple, and healthy debt levels factor towards it being fairly valued.
