Do you worry about stock market volatility? We ran a screen with that idea in mind.

We created this list by first screening the consumer goods industry for high-growth stocks, with 5-year projected EPS growth above 15%.

We then screened for those with strong positive correlations to the volatility (VIX) index over the last two months. This indicates that these stocks have tended to outperform when market uncertainty and volatility spiked. This may bode well if the market sees more volatility in the future. Of course, past performance is no guarantee of future returns.
