Hershey CEO John Bilbrey could setp down by next summer, Reuters reports

Hershey CEO John Bilbrey could step down by next summer to spend more time with his family, Reuters reports, citing people familiar with the matter. The chocolate company's board is "already preparing" for Bilbrey's resignation and has formed a committee to find a successor, the people say. Bilbrey, who was named CEO in 2011, would remain non-executive chairman, one source says. The news comes less than three months after the charitable trust that controls Hershey reached a major reform agreement with its overseer, the Pennsylvania attorney general's office, the report notes.

JPMorgan says Mondelez speculation misguided, not pursuing Hershey again
JPMorgan analyst Ken Goldman noted that strength in Hershey (HSY) shares this morning was being attributed to speculation that Mondelez (MDLZ) might be back in talks to buy the company. However, after speaking with Mondelez, the analyst said it is clear that the company's stance is unchanged and there have been no new deal talks, nor does he think there will be any.
