6 Halloween Candy Stocks to Watch This Holiday Season

Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory (RMCF)

This isn't really the kind of chocolate you'll find in plastic porch pumpkins or goody bags this Halloween. Rocky Mountain's Halloween-themed boxes of assorted chocolates and caramel apples seem more at home on a receptionist's desk or a holiday gift basket for someone you don't feel too strongly about.

That said, the mall clientele that frequent Rocky Mountain literally eat this stuff up. Revenue is up 2% from this time last year, while sales have increased 6.3%. That growth coupled with the addition of chocolate shops and affiliated Aspen Leaf Yogurt outlets helped boost the company's share price 42% over the last year.

That's good growth, but the company's market cap of $72.4 million still makes it as prone to takeover offers such as that made by Whitman's Chocolates back in the 1990s. That might sweeten the deal for investors willing to wait it out.
