Just last month, one of those bulls, jules2012, touched on the powerful health trends working in Hain Celestial's favor:

After 10 years living Los Angeles and witnessing the healthy foods phenomenon rise from alternative to mainstream, with questionable hormones and chemicals in many foods and much more consumer awareness, add in a healthy fear of obesity, reality shows about losing weight, yoga as a sport, and gluten allergy awareness, it's moved from trendy to smart. It's here to stay.  

If you want market-beating returns, you need to put together the best portfolio you can. Owning exceptional stocks is a surefire way to secure your financial future. Of course, despite a strong four-star rating, Hain Celestial may not be your top choice.
