In the Q2 2021 Investor Letter, the fund highlighted a few stocks and Tupperware Brands Corp (NYSE:TUP) is one of them. Tupperware Brands Corp (NYSE:TUP) is a multinational multi-level marketing company. In the last three months, Tupperware Brands Corp (NYSE:TUP) stock lost 3%. Here is what the fund said:

“We also began to build a position in Tupperware Brands Corporation (TUP $21.97) at the end of the quarter. Tupperware sells home goods through a direct marketing channel. The stock is well off the 2013 highs of $97. New CEO Miguel Fernandez joined the firm in April of 2020. Previously, he worked on the turnaround of Avon before it was sold to Natura & Co. Over the past year, Miguel has been focused on selling off non-core assets, paying down debt, and rolling out a new growth strategy. We believe there’s significant unrecognized brand value at Tupperware that the company will monetize through expansion into new markets. Overall, the stock is currently trading for less than 5x what it is expected to earn this year.”
