Revenue for the current fiscal year, which ends in July 2010, is expected by analysts to rise 4.6% and accelerate to 8.2% next year.
Food stocks like Diamond Foods, General Mills (GIS - Get Report) and Kraft (KRFT - Get Report) aren't the sort of investments that explode in a stock-market rebound. However, they do offer diversification against losses. Should we experience another dip before the stock market really becomes the bull that most investors are betting on, an investment in a stock like Diamond would be a safe bet.
