Tupperware Brands (TUP)

I’ve been eyeing Tupperware Brands ($TUP) recently. It looks to be a good mid-cap stock with steadily rising earnings.

Here’s how Hoover’s describes them:

Tupperware Brands Corporation (TBC) knows that there’s more than one way to party. The company makes and sells household products and beauty items. Tupperware parties became synonymous with American suburban life in the 1950s, when independent salespeople organized gatherings to sell their plasticware. TBC deploys a sales force of about 2.7 million people in about 100 countries. The company also sells its products online. Brands include Armand Dupree, Avroy Shlain, BeautiControl, Fuller, NaturCare, Nutrimetics, Nuvo, Swissgarde, and, of course, Tupperware. Its BeautiControl unit sells beauty and skin care products and fragrances in North America, Latin America, and the Asia/Pacific region.

TUP should probably earn close $5 per share this year, and $5.50 or more next year. Unfortunately, when I was first looking into TUP, the shares were at $54. The good earnings report sparked a rally to $62. The stock still looks good; it’s just not the outstanding bargain it had been.

The World Simplest Stock Valuation model give TUP a fair value of $77.
