1. Operating Margin
2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

The Hershey Co operates as a confectionery manufacturer in the United States engaged in the chocolate industry. The firm has more than 80 brands, including Hershey's, Reese's, Kit Kat, Twizzlers, and Ice Breakers with a business presence across the world.

Hershey is a leading confectionery manufacturer in the United States (about a $25 billion market), controlling around 45% share of the domestic chocolate market. Over its 85-year plus history, the firm has developed a product portfolio that consists of more than 80 brands, including Hershey's, Reese's, Kit Kat, Twizzlers, and Ice Breakers. Hershey's products are sold in about 80 countries, with just 10%-15% of total sales coming from markets outside the United States, including Brazil, China, India, and Mexico. The firm has sought inorganic opportunities to extend its reach beyond its core confection business, most recently with the deal to add Amplify Snack Brands and its Skinny Pop ready-to-eat popcorn to its mix.
