Jefferies maintained its Buy rating but trimmed its price target on Hain Celestial (NASDAQ: HAIN) from $75 to $74 following Q3 results and the acquisition of Ella's Kitchen Group.

Analyst Thilo Wrede said, "We continue to see HAIN as one of the few packaged food companies in our universe benefiting from current consumer trends and with long term demand for organic food likely to increase, we see the company in the sweet spot of the changes in food. In addition, the just announced Ella’s acquisition should help to further strengthen the UK business."

The firm raised Q4 EPS estimates from $0.61 to $0.64, FY 2013 from $2.42 to $2.48 and FY 2014 EPS from $2.87 to $2.94.
