UBS maintains a 'Neutral' on Hain Celestial (NASDAQ: HAIN) price target of $55.00 (from $49.00).

Analyst, David Palmer, said, "We are raising our FY13e EPS to $2.16 (+20% YOY; cons $2.09) from $2.10 and our price target to $55 to reflect sustained organic and natural food sales growth. Our FY13 forecast now assumes: 1) 14% revenue growth (+8pp organic), 2) slight gross margin expansion (10bp) driven by easing input inflation partly offset by the addition of the Daniels Group, and 3) a 50bp reduction in SG&A margins given Daniels Group’s lower SG&A margin profile."
