We like BERY's sector-leading top-line growth profile (given its leverage to faster-growing plastic packaging substrates and track record of accretive acquisitions) and strong free cash flow generation. While we note BERY's higher leverage and limited free float, we see multiple expansion potential from deleveraging.
