It goes without saying that this market remains a stock picker’s market. Select the wrong stock, and there’s a 30-40% haircut up ahead; select the correct stock, and you’re positioned for the recovery with modest downside exposure. For a chance at the latter, consider Tupperware Brands Corporation (NYSE: TUP).
Tupperware will benefit from the trend toward many, many more leftovers and fewer meals out, as Americans rebuild savings amid the housing and stock market slumps.
In general, analysts are impressed that Tupperware has strengthened its position in several key markets, and are also impressed by TUP’s emerging markets presence, which registered an 18% sales increase in FY 2008.
Analysts also generally favorably view TUP’s decision to acquire a beauty/personal care products business from Sara Lee, concentrated primarily in Latin America and Asia Pacific: margins for these two lines are expected to exceed TUP’s corporate average.
