We are purely technically driven market participants at ChartSmarter but we do pay a bit of attention to fundamental changes that stocks undergo (keep in mind that many times the best looking charts will emanate from the best run firms). Below we look at a company that has transformed itself from not just the household kitchen products, but is also now in the beauty space and one does not have to look far to see how names like ULTA and EL have behaved. Again our entries are 100% price driven but the conversion this name has undergone should not be overlooked and its footprint in Europe is expanding and many stocks in that region are acting firm. The next paragraph is precisely how we looked at TUP in our 5/1 Game Plan (anyone who would like a full copy of Fridays Game Plan please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org).
