PE is currently 22.30, and this can expand upto 25 with modest earnings growth and 2.5% dividend.

Dividend is fantastic but cost of sales continues to increase without noticeably pushing revenue. I could see many people looking here for safety in a volatile market but I don't really see it justifying a valuation any higher than it currently is.

Friday saw a drop below key support level after reporting third q earnings, and cutting next q forecast for the 5th straight quarter. Revenue growth -.o4, earnings growth -30.83. The caution for short players is the 2.62% dividend yield. Also consider the following for broader implications: http://www.businessinsider.com/hersheys-got-a-lot-of-problems-2015-10

Initiated ~4% RL portfolio position as well at just below $90/sh. Plan to add more next month (given the price lingers around $90) and hold forever. Top-quality company at a reasonable price. Nice dividend to boot. This is as close to a "sure thing" as it gets...

Dividends500 tracks the 200 strongest dividends in the S&P 500. To qualify as a strong dividend, the company must meet two simple requirements:

- A payout ratio below 50%
- An increasing dividend from the prior year

Because there are more than 200 dividend paying companies in the S&P 500 that meet these requirements, the qualifying companies with the largest dividend yields were chosen.

Dividends500 intends to test this FactSet article, which highlights these strong dividend paying companies and their outperformance versus the S&P 500 as a whole (Page 12).

If you have questions or see something you think is inaccurate feel free to let me know.

Cash efficient. Can not be sold to the highest bidder as the HSY trust will not allow that. Has the ability to raise prices to reflect commodity costs and inflation.

An inexpensive indulgence that will be one of the last to be scrimped on in any down turn and will be one of the first to be expanded on during any upturn.

117. The Hershey Company (NYSE: HSY) is ridiculously overvalued. I guess this shouldn't surprise me because so is Tootsie Roll Industries (NYSE: TR). I'm downthumbing them both. Hershey should be trading between $50-$55, but the redthumbing at present is mostly because they are trading at the top of their channel. Expect them to fall below $58. There's a new analyst that I've never heard of: "Ticonderoga" that apparently assigned Hershey a price target of $66. Unbelievable. Who are these people? For the most part, Hershey is trading above the other analyst estimates. Look out below!
