Over on CAPS, fully 64 of the 68 All-Star members who have rated Tupperware -- some 94% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include dspl4Js and GregoryMoore, both of whom are ranked in the top 15% of our community.

Last week, dsp14Js tapped Tupperware as a way to seal in some fresh returns: "One consumer discretionary that will work. Good product, and also a worldwide consumer base. I think Tupperware is a buy at these levels."

In a pitch from January, GregoryMoore expands on Tupperware as a way to defend against the downturn:

Saw the CEO on Jim Cramer. I'll buy his thesis for [Tupperware] as recession resistant, since in the developed world people looking to save money will look for more food storage as they cook more at home instead of going out to eat. I also expect that if they need more kitchen utensils and gadgets they will more likely buy Tupperware than Williams Sonoma as they look to save money. And they have an improved pool for recruiting as more households look for ways to increase their income.
