Who doesn't love avocados?

From 10/22/2017:

"The only thing that may make investors think twice is that the recent trend of continually improving EPS and operating cash flow, measured on a trailing-12-month basis, has appeared to slow this calendar year.

However, I'm inclined to think the slowdown is a temporary blip on the radar. Should Calavo Growers continue to execute and meet its fiscal 2018 expectations, then I think the stock will continue its torrid pace higher and more than grow into its relatively expensive valuation. That would also force Wall Street to increase its future earnings estimates for the business. I think investors should feel pretty confident that Calavo Growers can continue to be a growth stock for the foreseeable future."

The market for avocados is projected to grow around 6% a year and Calavo dominates its niche in avocado distribution. *insert avocado emoji here* I would have some concern investing real money in Calavo given the lumpy nature of the business (which interestingly has "on" and "off" years) and the vulnerability of avocado farming--especially in California--to issues like wildfire and heatwaves. Calavo, however, has revenue coming in from their subsidiary Renaissance Food Group, which deals in prepared foods and produce, and contributes 40% (and growing) to the top line. Outperform.
