10 Consumer Stocks With Upside

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- Green Mountain Coffee Roasters (GMCR - Get Report), Jarden (JAH - Get Report), Deckers Outdoor (DECK), Tyson Foods (TSN - Get Report), Whirlpool (WHR - Get Report), Phillips-Van Heusen (PVH - Get Report), HanesBrands (HBI), Fossil (FOSL), Central European Distribution (CEDC) and Lorillard (LO) are consumer stocks that could appreciate significantly in the coming year, at least according to analysts' consensus estimates.

These 10 stocks have market caps of up to $12 billion and returned an average of 23% over the past year. The percentage of analysts giving each stock a buy rating ranges from 44% to 77%.

Analysts' consensus estimates indicate potential upside of 15% to 102% these stocks over the next year. However, Central European Distribution had a poor quarter in December, hampered by higher impairments. The stock corrected heavily in the last few days. Investors with risk appetite can consider the stock as the company is expected to provide good returns from current levels, even though it remains bogged down by lofty debt levels and a tepid earnings outlook.

In comparison, analysts' price targets for frontline stocks like The Procter & Gamble Company (PG), Nike (NKE), Unilever (UL), Kraft Foods (KFT) and Sony (SNE) imply upside of 11%-22%, based on strong fundamentals.

The stocks are listed in ascending order of upside implied by consensus analyst estimates.
