Sept. 2015: Blackstone (Stock to Study), Hershey (Undervalued)The Editorial Advisory and Securities Review Committee of BetterInvesting Magazine today announced The Blackstone Group L.P. (NYSE: BX) as its September 2015 "Stock to Study" and The Hershey Company (NYSE: HSY) as its September 2015 "Undervalued Stock" for investors' informational and educational use.
"The committee selected Blackstone for its highly capable management along with a corporate structure that allows it to take advantage of investment opportunities when they arise across a variety of industries," said Adam Ritt, editor of BetterInvesting Magazine. "For the Undervalued selection, the committee believes the negative reaction to Hershey's reduced short-term guidance presents a longer-term opportunity." Check BetterInvesting's September issue for more details about these selections.
