.....I would hate to see Hershey sold to an overseas outfit.....they're a great American company in a great American town....the Hershey Corp should leave well enough alone and continue sticking by the community that's stuck by them for all these years.... the beat goes on.... Bobo
Bobo, I am skeptical about Nestle's getting Hershey. Seems to me between Lenny and the trust the deal is set up with Kraft. Too much coincidence to believe this is really open bidding. The cynical part of me believes that Kraft will get to be a white Knight. Maybe Nestle's is trying to make sure Kraft doesn't get too good a deal. Lou
sorry to say....but that seems to be quite a "short view"!!!! Why: HSY is JUST an American Co....and has nearly NO leg in international markets....so diversification not only for the trust would be necessary....but for the company itsself! Whatever happens:they NEED a sort of partner....not at least because SOME of their numbers are not THAT good/clean!!! Saludos!!
