    Do yourself a favor and run to Aldi's for your next chocolate bar. Not only will you save money, it cost about $1.50 for a 5.2oz bar, but it will taste better. Their bar is a product of Austria called Choceur, it is made with real vanilla and no PGPR cocoa butter substitute. Hershey products just keep getting worse. (Had an Almond Joy the other day, it is not made with milk chocolate anymore. I could have sworn it used to be made with milk chocolate but I could be wrong).

    I like their glow in the dark packages. Clever and a draw to buy

    Did you see that Home Depot sold out of its Halloween decor almost immediately in August! That tells me people are going all out for Halloween and will start buying candy in record amounts in October. BUY THE DIP.

    I like this stock a lot. How can you not? If you have never been to Hershey in Pennsylvania you are missing out.

    Clearly, HSY is a momentum stock. I worked for HSY for 32 years before retiring several years ago. Great company! Made buckets of money on this stock over the years and still sitting on options that do not expire until the end of September, 2021. This stock has been following a pattern for at least the past 20 years. It gets stuck in a narrow trading range for 4-5 years as it did from 2014-2018. When it finally starts to move, the uptrend typically continues for at least 18-24 months with the runup typically resulting in a doubling of the share price. While I was initially skeptical of the $200/share prediction, their huge EPS beat for Q2 reported on Thursday and the 7% increase in the dividend now leads me to conclude that $200 may actually be possible within the next 18-24 months.

    Looks like we're in for a pullback before the stock surges to new highs. Given the significant runup in the share price since January, I would not be surprised if the stock falls to the low 150s before the next leg up. If the recent snack acquisitions are accretive to earnings next year and they report strong numbers for Q3 and Q4, I continue to believe that the stock can climb to $200 by Q3 of next year.

    Just dropped below $90 for the first time in a while. If we break below $89.10 in the coming days, we'll likely see more momentum on the downside. Full disclosure - I have 33% of desired position in HSY @ $94.00. Holding off on any additional buys for now, but will complete my position at some point. I plan on this being a long term position, so perfectly fine with this dropping further.

    Chocolate sales have been surging since the start of the pandemic in mid-March. This should bode well for Hershey's Q2 results.

    People bought $3.7 billion worth of chocolate during the pandemic.

    Divesting brands in a time like this - not to mention forgoing to materialize previous acquisitions - in order to save a business from it’s obligations, clearly would shrink future earnings of HSY. It may be rational, however, to know when to sell - even at a loss - and simply start over. The business of HSY is mainly in the US and holds selling rights to Kit-Kat and Cadbury. Perhaps, to keep a ship afloat, it must let go some of its barrels and only keep the essential ones. But planning to sell two more high-end chocolate brands concerns me. Confectionary products are competitive and it is hard to run a business under competitive prices. In the long run, 5 to 10 years, will HSY be stronger than ever? Hershey school benefits from HSY’s dividends, so, if earnings becomes a serious problem, forgoing dividend payouts would be necessary for the business but not good for the shareholders who rely on dividends. I am most concerned on HSY’s business health and Hershey’s legacy. Are we making the right moves? And if dividends are held, is it reasonable to expect the same level frugality toward compensations?

    Geld this stock for quite some time and been happy with stock price appreciation and dividends. How long will the good times last? No idea. Chocolate is one commodity (amongst others) that people buy when they are happy and sad.
