On CAPS, 96% of the 420 members who have rated Tupperware believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, All-Star joryko, succinctly summed up the bull case for our community:

With 61% of its sales coming from emerging markets, 24% of company revenues coming from its rapidly growing Beauty and Personal Care segment, and its continued payment of a 3% dividend, Tupperware offers quite a lot to investors.

However, the company's biggest weapon, and the reason I'm interested, is its INNOVATION.

25% of the company's sales come from products that were brought to market within the last 2 years. While this puts them at risk of having to continually innovate, I believe the opportunity of huge new products outweighs the risk of failing to create them.

With a slight decline in stock price from the slowdown in emerging markets, I was able to jump in on a great company at a fair price. 5+ years.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a strong five-star rating, Tupperware may not be your top choice.

In fact, one home run investing opportunity has been slipping under Wall Street's radar for months. But it won't stay hidden much longer. Forward-thinking energy players such as General Electric and Ford have already plowed sizable amounts of research capital into this little-known stock, because they know it holds the key to the explosive profit power of the coming "no choice fuel revolution." Luckily, there's still time for you to get on board if you act quickly. All the details are inside an exclusive report from The Motley Fool. Click here for the full story!
