business news in context, analysis with attitude

Reuters reports that while management at Hershey Foods was dealing with the possibility that the trust that owns it would sell the company, it may have been distracted from the business of selling chocolate.

Unfortunately, according to the Reuters report, Hershey was ignoring its chocolate business at about the same time it should have been dealing with the Halloween season soon to come.

Some analysts believe that Hershey’s sales and shipments for the current quarter will be down or flat.
