I assume you are referring to:
"Yes. I followed your company since early 2004. I think, I bought stock in the first quarter and I can buy it for the same price today. I was familiar with you guys when you're pushing beans around the upper Midwest and at one point, I thought you had a clear field of opportunity. At that time the soy milk movement was getting off the the ground and the whole Whole Foods Market, buy locally organic, and you guys were in the sweet spot. I listen to these conference calls on and off -- on the stock on and off, all that time recommended the stock to several other people and where do we sit today? This ongoing, its always something. The contract in Spain with the biomaterials the berries in Oregon I just can't believe, its hard to understand and I listen to this jargon about going to reorganized and going to restructured. We just did this in the last 18 months, I have been listening to this since 2004. I just don’t get it, why you can't focus, don’t grow cocoa in Holland and something in Bulgaria or Hungary or some damn place. Why can't you just focus on what you have, that's clear on the plate right in front of you and make it work. Lets say, and the people on the conference calls year-after-year come and go, and get a new crop of people and you've got this ready opportunities, some people think your stocks worth $30, if execution were done right, I firmly believe. What's going on?
Steven R. Bromley - Chief Executive Officer and Director
Sure. A couple of points that I would make and certainly we are more than willing to further the discussion. The reality is...
No I've made my case, it's up to you guys.
Steven R. Bromley - Chief Executive Officer and Director
Okay that's fine, if you'd like a response then I'm more than happy to..."

Why don't we get to read what Bromley said re. "The reality is..."
I pretty much feel the same as the analyst.
"...I think by being upfront with the American people..."
Now if O had CONSISTENTLY been upfront with the American people re Obamacare; you know, like not saying one thing while knowing it was false, well, then perhaps there would not be a need to apologize.
Short answer: Nothing done--or at least nothing has been PUBLICLY stated that a deal has been done.
Google is great! Simply enter "del monte iams" and you will find your answer.
Please do not distort the "argument".
OP stated: "pay $3.00 for an organic apple" whereas you wrote "$3lb", which is entirely different. Case in point: Red "Delicious" apples at my local WFM are offered at 2.99/lb. The largest Red "Delicious" I could locate weighed approx one half a pound which would translate to a cost of approx. $1.50 per apple.
As usual, I do know what I'm "talking" about.
P.S. I am aware the odds of you reading this post are slim, since trolls like you swoop onto a message board of ANY stock that takes a hit.
Just as quickly as you appear, you will be gone. (thankfully)
Perhaps SOME of the apples WFM sells are priced at three bucks, I just haven't seen such an item; sorry if you live in such an expensive ares, but heck, I too live in an expensive area. Earlier this week, I bought macs in a "tote bag" for .99/lb; if I chose to individually pick out macs, they were priced at 1.99/lb.
What on earth does a split have to do with you taking a trip???
Splits do not affect a company's fundamentals...YIKES!
I guess it was simply a coincidence that WFM split and you took a trip?
Perhaps in your haste to post your fascinating post you mixed up "resistance" with "support"?
Or, am I giving you too much credit and you simply do not have a clue???
Great to compare market cap per store but.....are you comparing apples with apples or oranges?
What is the average sf of FWM stores and what is the average sf of WFM stores? That would be a good starting point for deeper analysis!
"stock of this caliber"
Coming from a relatively long term, long suffering long, I think you are too kind with your assessment of STKL by suggesting it is a high caliber stock/company. This company has had a history of disappointments, but we/I always have "hope".
Let's see, STKL closed just about at its low of the day with high volume. There's one investment scholar who frequently posts about the merits of high or low volume; let's see if he comments! IMO, huge volume with a big down move means it will take some time for the share price to recover to where it was before today.
In your opinion "It shoud be up....", but in reality.....
Share price is partially based on expectations and when said expectations are not met...
Those two are not opinions, but reality.
The market is reacting (somewhat) appropriately.
I'm not sure either of the three, split, buyout or dividend inititation is in the cards.
Splits seem to excite retail investors. Splits may be "fun", but since they do not affect a company's fundamentals (except share count), I'm neither positive or negative re a split.
One thing a split tells me is that the share price HAS increased. That said, most companies would not split their shares if mgmt was not positive re the future.
Buyout: HAIN is not cheap and Irwin still has many more years to guide HAIN; I just don't see it happening, but I probably would not complain if an offer was made.
Dividend: I expect HAIN to use its cash to grow its business rather than pay a dividend.
As far as HAIN hitting 100, time will tell!
P.S. When will the "ok, who bought at 88.36" post appear???
Once again, just as one gets more confident about STKL.....
"...combined with continued processing challenges in our sunflower operations as well as the cyclical weakness in the steel and infrastructure segments within our non-core holding, Opta Minerals."
"...internal re-structuring and expansion efforts are progressing well, and while we expect costs associated with these efforts to continue for the next two quarters..."
IMO, it seems like mgt is making the right moves, but when will they pay off?
Someday, but not yet.
Clearly some retail "investors" simply do not grasp how option grants work.
Key words: "you think".
Here are a few FACTS that do not require guessing (or thinking):
Scott Van Winkle has been covering (correctly) HAIN since at least 3/20/01.
Since 9/17/01, he has rated HAIN "BUY" and only "BUY". He has reiterated his "BUY" and or altered his price target EIGHTY-THREE times since 9/17/01. Today he reiterated his "BUY" call and, FWIW, raised his price target from 85 bucks to 93 bucks.
While it is evident that you have a hard on for Cramer; do you have any comments re Van Winkle's (correct) propensity to call HAIN a "BUY" as well???
