On CAPS, 98% of the 649 members who have rated Hain Celestial believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward.

Just yesterday, one of those Fools, JohnStuartMill, succinctly summed up the Hain Celestial bull case for our community:

The acquisition business model is working well (most recently Premiere Foods) both domestically and internationally. So there's no reason to believe it will stop. Coupled with that is the general market trend for organic foods. ...

Additionally, I don't think a lot of people realize they serve a wide swatch of personal care products business as well. There are skin and hair care, oral care, deodorants and baby care products. More marketing promotion with these products could expand their bottom line.

If you want market-thumping returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Of course, despite a perfect five-star rating, Hain Celestial may not be your top choice.
