    • Barron's says Vitamin Shope (NYSE:VSI) could rally 20% or more as an aging population and a greater focus on health drive demand for supplements and vitamins.
    • VSI has increased same-store sales for the past 35 quarters, yet shares are -30% since Feb. 2013 over what some saw as overly aggressive growth tactics.
    • VSI is the No.2 U.S. retailer of nutritional products, behind GNC Holdings (NYSE:GNC). Some think GNC may take a run at VSI, especially following recent news that CEO Tony Truesdale will retire next June.
