13:35 EDTNSRGY, HSY, MDLZHershey melts after Goldman downgrade
Shares of chocolate maker Hershey (HSY) are falling after Goldman Sachs lowered its rating on the stock to a Sell. WHAT'S NEW: After the market closed last night, Goldman Sachs downgraded Hershey to Sell from Neutral, saying the stock is "priced for perfection" and that the company's cycle of strong earnings growth will end. Goldman lowered its price target for the stock to $90 from $105. Goldman Sachs analysts Jason English, Sean King and Manpreet Sethl were cautious on Hershey, saying that they expect the company's domestic momentum to fade. Goldman lowered its earnings per share estimates for Hershey's fiscal years 2014 through 2016 by 3%-6% to reflect lower sales and margin projections. While they said that they still perceive Hershey as a "best-in-breed company" whose international momentum will continue, the analysts believe expectations for the company are on the verge of turning more negative. OTHERS TO WATCH: Other companies in the chocolate industry include Nestle (NSRGY) and Mondelez (MDLZ), which owns Cadbury. PRICE ACTION: During afternoon trading, shares of Hershey fell $2.57 or $2.53%, to $99.15.
