Amcor – For the Brave

Amcor is a leading company within the global packaging space. Their business is directly impacted by slower global consumption and it’s understandable their share price has been hit with a 30% sell-off.

However, if you believe the sun will rise again and people will go out to play, Amcor is a market recovery opportunity that’s worth considering at these levels.

High Volatility – buy

 

 

Amcor – Buy

Amcor reaffirmed their guidance for 5 – 10% EPS growth and US$160mn in cost synergies over the next 3 years from the Bemis acquisition.

Half of the forecast EPS growth is being achieved through cost savings, so the underlying business remains at low single-digit growth. The Q1 update removes medium-term downside risks and with the stock offering a 4.8% yield, we expect support to build at $14.50.

 

Amcor – High Conviction Buy

 Amcor is under Algo Engine buy conditions and is a current holding in our ASX 100 model portfolio.

Amcor will provide an investor update on the 8th of November.  We anticipate the commentary around cost synergies, post the Bemis acquisition and the share buyback will help renew buying interest in the stock 

Buy Amcor for a move back towards $15.50

Amcor – Take Profit

Amcor strong share price movement suggests investors are
pricing in an earnings upgrade, but we think a significant EPS upgrade
is unlikely and investors should now take profit or sell covered calls.

Amcor – Valuation Review

Amcor is now under Algo Engine buy conditions, following the higher low formation at $15.75.

Looking out to FY20 we have Amcor generating a combined revenue of $13.5bn, EBIT $1.65bn, delivering 8% EPS growth and trading on a 4.4% yield.

We see value at $15, however, with the defensive nature of the Amcor business, buying interest is likely to build closer to $15.50.
