Just last week, clintm15 tapped Tupperware as a rather ubiquitous choice:
A brand so strong that across many English speaking countries plastic containers are referred to as Tupperware, most people don't know that it's an actual company. Companies like this go largely ignored because the excitement factor is zero but it has an economic moat to die for.
Tupperware's brand power, exposure to emerging markets, and cheapish valuation continue to fuel its perfect five-star rating. Currently, Tupperware even trades at a P/E (13.4) discount to main rivals Avon (19.6) and Newell Rubbermaid (19.5), as well other houseware stocks like Jarden
CAPS member Stender89 expands on the Tupperware opportunity:
1: They're a cash machine growing huge [free cash flow] as far as I can tell.
2: They have an attractive, easy to understand business model.
3: They'll bring in a huge number of new recruits via the women in the developing markets.
4: They're paying down debt, buying back stock and yielding an attractive, easily maintainable dividend. ...
In conclusion this is probably not going to be a [Netflix]-kind-of-ten-bagger, but it is a very solid core stock that is not too set in its ways to grow at doubledigit rates in the foreseeable future.
