Whole Foods Market (NASDAQ:WFM) shares have been pummelled lately, down more than 25% over the past year. Investor concern over increasing competition -- competition that will eat into Whole Food's impressive margins -- started becoming a reality in the most recent quarter. On the other hand, Hain Celestial (NASDAQ:HAIN) shares are up 30% over the same period, as the organic and natural foods maker expands and grows.
