Tough day in the lot? Heard Ellen was going to join you.
Martinique, that Montserrat mystique
Oh cabana boy...
Did you get your swimwear yet?
Key Largo, Montego....
Refill please cabana boy!
You couldn't even come up with an alias that doesn't have "fun" in it. LOL!
That's Ms. Blind to you. And she has a job at DuPont, unlike famous funfun who got canned 13 years ago.
Canned is what Ellen Kullman got!
Aruba, Jamaica, Bermuda, Bahamas Down in Kokomo, cabana boy!
You won for once. Ellen got pushed out, albeit (that word again!) not without collecting a cool $15 million this year plus a severance package that was 100X the POS you got handed.
Dr. Fun has been after ANYONE who works at DuPont - wage rollers, managers, CEOs, et al.
He got canned 13 years ago last month and has never forgiven the company for sending him on a one-way ticket to the Wilmington slums.
Hard to believe this guy used to be a PhD chemist at DuPont. No wonder why DuPont quit recruiting from his alma mater (Aberdeen U) after finding out about the "quality" of Aberdeen chemists.
I'm grumpy because of goldbrickers like you who steal the company's $ without performing your job adequately. This is evidenced by your posts which really expose your lousy attitude. You need to GO!
Who in the hell are you to tell another investor what to say, when to say it, and how often? If you are fearful of a foreign thought crashing across the border of your brain, please do yourself a favour, and place the undersigned on "IGNORE". Yahoo! provides you this handy feature for unwanted commentary.
Like it or not, there may two or three investors out there on the internet who might like to read our continuing perspective on DuPont and its stillborn offspring, Shamours.
Gotta laugh, folks...funfun..
I thought now that Callman has given in and retired ........that you might stop your daily rants
and move on to another investment.
Callman & her mgmt team are goners ........do you plan to berate the next DuPont CEO too ....????
no, but the prospects of a new outside CEO and associated strategic plan is worth at least 12 %
longer term .........not all investors trade on the next 2 quarterly results ......

Over the past two months, investors have witnessed 2 earnings estimate revisions lower compared to just none higher for the current year. The consensus estimate for DD has also been on a downward trend over the same time period too, as the estimate has fallen from $3.22/share two months ago to just $2.96/share today.
If this wasn’t enough, DuPont also has a Zacks Rank #4 (Sell)which puts it into unfortunate company among its peers. So, given all of these factors, investors may want to consider exiting this stock now before it falls back to Earth.
They tried to hide the revision with the CEO retirement annoucement and ran the stock up over 5.00. But the downward revision to third quarter sales and income is significant. I understand the game. Lower the numbers so they can say they beat the numbers.....but the third quarter lower numbers do not justify a 12% run up on the stock.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
The problem is that some Boards think it's the chic thing to do to hire the 1st woman boss at their company.
Ellen was clearly over her head from Day 1. It just took 6 years of goof ups for the Board to finally kick her out.
Marissa Mayer may work out at Yahoo. Meg Whitman is pretty solid. At least with Marissa, she looks good in a bathing suit. Wrinkled Ellen will not be missed.
Some can, she was just not one of them. She was all hype and image, no delivery there fore "There's the door."
MON is downsizing by more than 10% of its workforce...They tried to put a positive spin on their future, but....
"The announcement of the restructuring followed a lackluster earnings report, a failed bid for Swiss agrochemical giant Syngenta and a tough year for the business of farming. Net sales for Monsanto’s 2015 fiscal year fell more than $800 million from the previous year, to $15 billion. Net income fell 15.5 percent, to $2.3 billion. Monsanto’s fourth-quarter net sales fell $275 million, to $2.4 billion, from the same period last year, and the company reported a fourth-quarter loss of $495 million, compared with a $156 million loss in the prior year’s quarter."
I was just saying here the other day, that what MON announced would probably tell us what DD's earnings will look like. (Since a lot of their earnings comes from licensing agreements from other chem companies and those other chem companies are down as well, that segment isn't as lucrative as it once was.)
Ellen not staying the 60 day required period to get the full severance package versus just the $2.8 million (when earnings will be coming out the end of this month) either tells me this quarter will be far worse than the previous one, or the board wanted her to split out or sell off a part of DD that she didn't feel would be the right move in a down market. Just my opinion, and I'm sure I'll be shot down for it shortly. But hey, funfun speculates on a daily basis....
Shamours Management Whines They Are "Disappointed"
Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,
Readers, the shareholders of Shamours (CC) will pay dearly for the gross misdeeds of DuPont's dirty-dealing executives, who, for more than two decades, knowingly contaminated drinking water supplies of 100,000 women, men, and children in the Mid-Ohio Valley with DuPont's carcinogenic Teflon toxin C8 and concealed secret studies of C8. But the jury nailed 'em yesterday, holding DuPont liable for the kidney cancer Mrs. Barlett contracted after being poisoned with DuPont's Teflon toxin C8. The jury awarded Mrs. Bartlett some $1.6 million.
It is not inconceivable already cash-strapped, debt-choked Shamours will ultimately go insolvent under the staggering weight of settlements and awards; then the ultimate liability will fall on DuPont (DD) shareholders. Historically, DuPont has been largely self-insured for many contingencies.
Shamours may go down in history as the Johns-Manville of Teflon Toxins! The response of Shamours execs and their PR con artists yesterday? They whined to the media they are "disappointed". How about the disappointment of thousands of men and women struck down with deadly C8-caused cancers? Or painful ulcerative colitis?
Merely the morning commentary of one individual investor and long-time student of the dirty-operating DuPont Company…funfun..
Monsanto reports $0.5 Billion loss for quarter. Plans lay-off of ~2600 employees. Ellen Kullman gets shown the door at DuPont. Tough time to be in the Ag business.
3500 lawsuits to go, each a separate trial. That sounds like the old DD with deep pockets and good lawyers.
Except for Benlate and a few others. If only 1/2 are successful at awards of $1 Million that = $1.7 Billion +/- a few $ billion. Maybe an ounce of prevention was worth a pound of cure.
