On CAPS, 96% of the 411 members who have rated Tupperware believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
Truthfully I was on the fence adding this particular equity. But here is why I ended up picking it. Return on capital is over 13% for the last 5 years. Last year is was over 16%. Last 5 years earnings growth was over 20%. Next 5 years estimates are for growth over 12%. The forward P/E is [under 11].
