Amcor: The Scrumptious 4% Dividend Yield For ESG Investors Is Safe

Amcor Plc, one of the largest players in the plastic packaging industry, offers an attractive 4% dividend yield. Management is committed to rewarding shareholders through dividends and share buybacks. It has positioned itself as an attractive choice for ESG conscious investors. However, Amcor Plc operates in a mature industry that is projected to grow at a low-to-mid single-digit growth for the next eight years. Amcor's 4% dividend seems risky at a dividend payout ratio of 77%. This article examines if Amcor can afford to pay a growing dividend.

Amcor: Share Buybacks Will Fuel Dividend Hikes - Anticipate A 4% Dividend Yield

Amcor is a leader in the packaging space, and the acquisition of Bemis is fueling the company's efficiency and results. Virtually, the entire free cash flow is spent on the dividend and share buybacks. This should enable the company to hike its dividend per share, without having to actually pay more.
