Although Amcor PLC (NYSE: AMCR) is a quality company and has performed well against expectations, its stock is likely to lag peers over the next few quarters, according to BofA Securities.The Amcor Analyst: George Staphos downgraded Amcor from Neutral to Underperform, while maintaining the price target at $12.90.The Amcor Thesis: The stock is a defensive one in a market that is "rotating to cyclicals" and is expensive versus peers, Staphos said."Our rating change has little if anything to do with the company's performance relative to our expectations or its quality - indeed, we raised our estimates following F1Q (September)," he wrote in a note.Amcor is expected to achieve volume growth of merely 0%-1% in 2021, versus an average of 3% for the overall packaging segment. "Additionally, plastic packaging companies continue to face headline risks with sustainability and we do expect inflation to create some temporary margin compression," the analyst said.AMCR Price Action: Shares of Amcor had risen by 1.1% to $11.71 at the time of publication Tuesday.Latest Ratings for AMCR DateFirmActionFromTo Nov 2020B of A SecuritiesDowngradesNeutralUnderperform Oct 2020Seaport GlobalInitiates Coverage OnNeutral Aug 2020Deutsche BankMaintainsBuy View More Analyst Ratings for AMCR View the Latest Analyst RatingsSee more from Benzinga * Click here for options trades from Benzinga * Why Goldman Sachs Is Dropping Bearish Nutanix Stance After Q1 Beat * BofA Raises Hibbett Sports Price Target After Q3, Says Retailer Well-Positioned For Holidays(C) 2020 Benzinga.com.
