Just last month, one of those Fools, valuemoneygreen, brought Tupperware's solid fundamentals to our community's attention:

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].

If you want market-beating returns, 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 four-star rating, Tupperware may not be your top choice.
