No you answered your own question. Healthy eating is the future. People in this country are tired of being fat and unhealthy. Companies like HAIN and WWAV are the GIS of the future.
The Kraft Heinz merger was a shot across the bow as more and more consolidation in the food space, especially organic, will happen in 2015. I sincerely doubt that HAIN or WWAV, for that matter, will stay independent in 2015. In fact, my guess is they are both acquired by the end of Q2. That being said, either buy some longer dated calls or put the common away in a drawer for your kids.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
I think its a bit over sold and need to come down a little. Say $61 or so. Great company but a little ahead of itself at the moment!
HAIN sells chicken (and turkey?) to CMG and PNRA. I wonder if MCD has talked with HAIN. Some day we will know which company or companies will provide MCD with the "better" chicken. (On a side note, I have't consumed any fast food since July 2013).
Boat load of new products and product extensions announced at the Food Expo as well as updated packaging. I'm amazed at how many products HAIN has--I have been buying more of them!
I think only HAIN could produce enough organic chicken to satisfy MCD's needs. Doesn't mean they will get a deal with MCD, but its good possibility. Irwin was also smart enough to buy the remaining stake of Empire Kosher that HPPC had. This gives them more organic chicken.
Seriously? Again? This is about the 20th time we have heard this already since I have been in HAIN. People need to stop being stupid. I would rather HAIN stay independent. I know Irwin will make this company a winner for many years to come. Why settle for a short term pop, when you can have a long term big gain.
Better late then never lol. Where were these idiots when HAIN was at $53. They would have looked like geniuses. Now they just look like band wagon jumpers.
From Seeking Alpha posted today--interesting about Target:
"Breakout time for organic food socks?"
"Wedbush initiates coverage on WhiteWave Foods (NYSE:WWAV) and Hain Celestial (NASDAQ:HAIN) with Outperform ratings.An important development occurred this week in the sector with Target announcing it will focus on organic brands in its grocery section at the expense of well-known packaged food products.There was also some talk of Wal-Mart decelerating the roll-out of its small-store format.Some analysts have been willing to stretch out valuation on organic food stocks due to the M&A potential.Previously: Grocery plans from Target to veer away from typical packaged food fare (Mar. 03 2015)Other organic food stock plays: THS, SFM, FWM, TFM, WFM."
I'm not sure if I would call this brand building, since it seems that HAIN is investing in the Cyc Fitness brand.
By doing so, Cyc Fitness will become another venue for HAIN brand awareness! All seem good to me; particularly the emphasis on millennials.
