Shares of Hershey Inc. HSY have reversed an earlier loss to be up 0.4% in afternoon trading, which puts them on track to snap the longest losing streak in 25 years. The chocolate seller’s stock had been down 1.3% at the intraday low of $194.64, which was hit at about 11 a.m. Eastern before launching its come back. The stock had dropped 6.7% over the past nine sessions to close Tuesday at a 20-month low of $197.18, which was the longest losing streak since the nine-session stretch that ended Dec. 18, 1998.

The stock has tumbled 21.4% over the past three months, while the Consumer Staples Select Sector ETF XLP has dropped 8.8% and the S&P 500 SPX has lost 4.8%.
