Faryl from NY says she owns a small fashion business here in the US, however, a significant portion of her manufacturing is done overseas, in emerging markets such as China. Since she’s in constant contact with clients and vendors overseas, how can he make fast money in a hot overseas telecom stock?
Tim Strazzini says the emerging markets space for telecom can be dicey. They all have different business models and susceptible to volatility in their home country. When markets are stable and going higher they can lead to fast money.
He says China Telecom (CHL) is his favorite, they’re mostly a mobile service provider and Mobile TeleSytems (MTS).
Myra from CT says she’s a BeautiControl Consultant and she’s been looking into Tupperware(TUP) stock, since BeautiControl is a subsidiary of Tupperware. She wants to know if this is a good time to invest in Tupperware or are there any other consumer goods companies worth considering?
Jeff Macke says Tupperware has been impervious to their numbers. They put up soft guidance but the stock didn’t dip and that’s a good sign. Jeff also recommends buying Rubbermaid (NWL) – he thinks they have a little more potential for upside because the company has a wider and more diversified platform of products. Bottom line: Own both.
