On CAPS, 90% of the 185 members who have rated Bemis believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.
It is a company with solid history and I believe that the benefits of Alcan Packaging acquisition will show up in the coming years. It is also strategically situated among industries with phenomenal growth such as food, medical, and pharmaceutical. The growth in these industries is accelerating due to wellness revolution and the developing economies of China and India. I foresee that Bemis would indirectly benefit from these trends due to the steady demands for food and medical packaging.
Of course, despite its four-star rating, Bemis may not be your top choice.
