Foolish Forecast: Sowing Wild Oats
By Rich Smith
November 3, 2005

Not all health foods stores are created equal.

For a study in contrasts, look at Motley Fool Stock Advisor pick Whole Foods (Nasdaq: WFMI), which isn't just bigger than its tiny rival Wild Oats (Nasdaq: OATS) -- it's a qualitatively better business as well. Better profit margins (positive as opposed to negative). Better returns on equity (likewise). Better dividends (existent as opposed to non). In short, better all around....

Twitty - I'm rather surprised that no one on this board has slammed you yet. My TI calculator tells me that when you posted your message OATS was sitting at about $11/share and recently hit $18. Wow...a 64% gain in just 3 1/2 months. I'm certain that somewhere there is a jester celebrating with his frosty pitcher of Leinenkugel's brew. And then I couldn't help notice the dismal performance of WFMI during this period. Our buddies over at Yahoo are reporting about the negative vibe on the street -- the growth rate and margins just don't support the price per share for WFMI..."Wildly Valued" and to the woodshed is what they're saying. I wonder...would one of your co-workers be willing to ambush you some morning with a wedgie and heaping supply of Quaker Oats? Yeah, nothing like a little jester style humor to start Twitty's day out right.
