On CAPS, 97% of the 2,383 members who have rated Tupperware believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
This company's business model is even more successful outside the U.S. than inside. (Indeed, they screwed things up in the US by trying to sell products through retail and demoralizing its sales force. This should be improving with the job situation and flexibility of working hours.)
The business is not just poppable plastic containers since it has successfully expanded its model to market beauty products.
If you want to retire rich, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong five-star rating, Tupperware may not be your top choice.
