    Hershey (HSY -1.5%) aims to take a piece of the world's biggest candy market when it debuts new condensed milk products in China. The initiative falls in line with a broad company plan to grow international sales to 25% of total sales by 2017 with China a key growth driver. What to watch: Hershey won't be the only foreign candy seller in the region with both Kraft Food Group and Nestle active.

    Cocoa prices are forecast to stay at current levels by Lindt & Spruengli chairman Ernst Tanner. The outlook is different than that of Hershey (HSY) after the company raised earnings estimates based on lower cocoa prices in 2013.

    The TBTF banks lie in bed at night dreaming they had the kind of government backstop afforded to the sugar industry. The USDA may buy 400K tons of sugar to prop up sugar processors which borrowed $862M under a government price-support scheme. Roll that one around for a few seconds. The higher prices pay for processors' vacation pads, but hit companies like HSY and NSRGY.PK, along with their customers.

    Brian Sozzi notes valuations on consumer product companies such as Campbell Soup (CPB), Hershey (HSY) and Kimberly Clark (KMB) continue to trek higher following the mega-sized Heinz purchase by Berkshire Hathaway and 3G Capital. The run-up might not be based entirely on pure M&A speculation with execs in the sector saying that the deal has drawn a sharper focus on new ways to cut costs and stay lean.

Presenters: K, GIS, PEP, CPB, KRFT, MDLZ, SJM, HSY. (full list)

    More on Hershey's (HSY) Q4: Core brands saw solid growth trends as volume played a 7 point benefit to sales momentum. Margins rose during the period on a non-cash impairment charge related to an investment in Tri-US and are seen continuing to rise in 2013 with productivity improving. The company expects to see sales increase by 5% to 7% in 2013, led by volume gains. EPS for the year is pegged at $3.56-$3.63, up from prior guidance. PR
