NEW YORK (AP) -- Shares of Tupperware Brands Corp. hit a 52-week high on Wednesday, after the plastic-container maker said second-quarter earnings jumped 40 percent, well above analyst expectations.
Late Tuesday, the company said earnings rose to $35.5 million, or 56 cents per share. Excluding one-time items, earnings were 58 cents per share, while analysts had been expecting earnings of 49 cents per share, according to a Thomson Financial poll.

This company has to qualify for one of those boring companies that Peter Lynch loves. And oh, BTW, it is up about 130% over ~4 years, not including its great dividend.

The analyst in this article seems to be concerned about European sales, so she has kept her rec at neutral.
