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.
