It could be a house of horrors in the candy aisle this Halloween, given that The Hershey Company (NYSE: HSY) announced there might be a shortage this year. It was forced to choose between one or the other, and so Halloween sales got short shrift. While other candy makers could benefit from the production shift and take market share, Hershey might not be the only one experiencing these issues.
The confectionary giant's Q2 report was akin to a goody bag for investors, with its contents including a 15% dividend raise and another full-year guidance increase.
Ongoing supply chain pressures amid strong consumer demand make for a scary combination as Hershey warns of a Halloween candy shortage.
