    Hershey earnings and sales miss consensus

    Hershey Co. reported fourth-quarter net income of $181.1 million, or 85 cents per share, up from $116.9 million, or 55 cents per share, for the same period last year. Adjusted EPS was $1.03, below the $1.07 FactSet consensus. Sales totaled $1.94 billion, down from $1.97 billion and missing the $1.96 billion FactSet consensus. Hershey attributed the sales decline, in part, to the timing of shipments and the launch of the Hershey's Cookie Layer Crunch bar in the prior year. Hershey expects 2018 net sales to grow 5% to 7% and organic sales to increase in the range of slightly up to 2%. Adjusted EPS is expected to be in the $5.33 to $5.43 range. The candy and snacks company is evaluating the cash benefit of new tax reform laws. Hershey shares are unchanged in Thursday premarket trading, and up 5% for the past year. The S&P 500 index is up nearly 24% for the last 12 months.Market Pulse Stories are Rapid-fire, short news bursts on stocks and markets as they move.
