Amcor (AMC.ASX) NPAT US$670m, EPS of $0.57 and final dividend of $0.22 CPS was inline with consensus. The numbers reflect a flat result on the same time last year, however, FY17 should see a return to underlying growth in the range of 5 – 7%.
FY17 revenue forecast of US$10b on EBIT of US$1.1b. EPS US$0.60 & DPS of US$0.55 placing AMC on a forward yield of 3.8%
We continue to see this as a buy on the dip story. Where we own AMC in the model from lower levels, we’ve been selling call options to enhance the yield.
