Elizabeth Arden, Inc. Research Report

its advantage. In  North America, sales increased 8.4 percent after adding
trendy fragrances to its portfolio like  Justin Bieber's  Girlfriend, Pink
Friday Nicki Minaj and Taylor Swift Wonderstruck Enchanted. By grabbing the
opportunities being presented by these partnerships and by rebranding their
products, the company has solid plans for future growth. The Full Research

Church & Dwight Co., Inc. Research Report

Analysts' bull outlook towards Church & Dwight seems to be consistent. The
parent company of brands, such as Arm & Hammer, Oxiclean and Trojan has been
showing upward trends in revenue growth and dividend that is said to be annually
increasing by 40 percent. Although the company's debt level increased in 2012,
Church & Dwight's recent acquisition of Avid Health Inc. may significantly help
the company expand its market and boost its revenue. According to Zacks Equity
Research, Church & Dwight's new asset may help the company gain a market share
in one of the fastest growing segments of the vitamin/mineral/supplement (VMS)
business. Avid Health is the market leader in VMS gummies, and its sales are
reported to have tripled over the last three years. The Full Research Report on
