Hain was a good buy in the teens - and it still is. It will be for a long time IMO. Health food is just keeps catching on. I grew up on natural foods from the 1970's and the "industry" has done nothing but grow. If a flailing economy hasn't slowed down health food, nothing will - absolutely nothing except the end of the world, maybe...
"Who the heck is paying $10 for Jason toothpaste in this economy?"
Apparently some consumers! You expose a great point: HAIN had decent growth over the past few years (when "this economy" was not so great); what will happen when "this economy" is no longer the case?!!!!!
I will allow that I think some of HAIN's products are "expensive", but again, not all consumers balk at their prices.
