A reversal pattern has formed, and momentum is bullish.
WhiteWave Foods, Hain Celestial and Whole Foods Market all have healthy-looking charts.
Technicals are bullish, and upcoming earnings could surprise to the upside.
We're not sure when the stock will break out on the topside of its consolidation, but it could be soon. Longs should be patient.
Charts show traders can snap up the stock at a steep discount.

After some choppy action through mid-September, prices are again on an upward trajectory.
We would buy near $24.50, but we would question the stock's strength on a move below $22.
