Fun Fact: Over the past 20 quarters (five years), HAIN's earnings have "surprised" (exceeded estimates) 12 times. But wait! It gets better...during the past 9 quarters, HAIN's earnings have ALL exceeded estimates; all in the single digit percentage range. In the past, HAIN frequently missed estimates; several times significantly (back in 2009, HAIN missed all four quarters, two by 22.20% and 21.05%).
In hindsight, it seems that the end of 2009 was a great time to buy or add!!!
Seems like HAIN / Irwin has learnd the skill of underpromising (to analysts) and overdelivering.
Will HAIN beat estimates a tenth time in a row?
