Why I'm Buying The Hain Celestial Group, Inc. for My Roth IRA

A Roth IRA is one of the most important investment tools at your disposal.  Although the money you put in it is taxed, you have complete control over where to invest it, any gains you have--through price appreciation or dividends--are tax-free, and all distributions after you are 59 and-a-half are also tax free.

For the past three years, the Motley Fool's Brian Stoffel has been calling out one stock every month that he puts his own Roth IRA money behind.  Up until two months ago, this portfolio was solidly outperforming the S&P 500 by double digits.  Recently, however, the market hasn't been so kind, and for the first time, the portfolio is losing to the broader market.

As you'll see in the video below, he's not going to let that bother him.  This is money he doesn't plan on touching for another three decades!  Instead of being concerned, he's excited for the opportunities that lie ahead.

He already laid the thesis out for why he thinks Whole Foods  (NASDAQ: WFM  ) is getting an outsized allocation in his portfolio, but he also likes to hedge his bets.  That's why he'll be filling you in below on his most recent purchase: Hain Celestial  (NASDAQ: HAIN  ) .  Listen to the video to find out why Brian thinks Hain is an excellent compliment to Whole Foods in playing the growing market for organic goods.

Will this stock be your next multi-bagger?

    I've been long HAIN in my discretionary account for 4 years now; I've added 4 times during all those politically-lead market drops and have trimmed twice to take profits. I'm still up 98% and I'm playing entirely with the house's money.

    To hedge my position in this category, I went short WFM earlier this year and have since covered my position. I thought the two stocks would move in sympathy, but in fact the two stock prices have diverged. I'm not negative on Whole Foods, but I noticed the last few quarters were losing momentum and Sprouts IPO'd offer a cheaper option to fresh food consumers.
