As a small, highly-leveraged company that must compete with brand-name goliaths such as Clorox (NYSE:CLX), Procter & Gamble (NYSE:PG) and Unilever (NYSE:UL) on a daily basis, it's not altogether surprising that Helen Of Troy (Nasdaq:HELE)
shares can be very volatile. Today's poor growth numbers are certainly a
concern, as are the company's long-term market position and cash flow
leverage, but aggressive investors may see opportunity emerging in a
company that has often been knocked down, only to rise once again.
