Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2015! Wow, since my post December 1, 27 days ago, DD now has 9.27 BILLION DOLLARS more market cap than MON. (DD-68.06 Billion versus MON-58.79 Billion as of Friday Dec 26.) That's up 2.64 BILLION more dollars in 27 days! And now it looks like MON and DD have settled their lawsuits against one another, so poor chicken little funfundvierzig has to find something new to whine about. I'm sure he will. Anyway, to the rest of us, have a prosperous New Year 2015.
According to Dr. Fun, it's called SHAMours. Of course, he hasn't had a job in 12 years since DuPont kicked his can down Market St.
We're back. We've been mulling around Goodwill stores these past few days hoping that recent DuPont dividend check can buy us some worn out khakis. More to come after we sober up a bit more....funfun..
I seem to recall DuPont being in the 83-85 dollar range way back in 1998. It is now 75 dollars.
so how does that "new highs" mathematics figure ?
It still has ten dollars to go to reach "new highs" - 17 years later.
I have to ask FF why he does not accent this fact with a reply. Sleeping on the job FF?
And now I hear DuPont is going to abandon Wilmington Delaware USA ..
I guess the loyalty goes one way - a few years ago they said they were not leaving Wilmington
"at this time" - there's the magic
"at this time"
we are not going to sell (name a business) "at this time"
we are not withholding evidence "at this time"
we are completely ethical "at this time"
Labdirector logging out "at this time"
Peltz will win a proxy fight and cancel her comp.
Her incompetent time is over.
Investors should be glad the BGLAD subsidies of bent- ones
Although I agree the current liabilities would scare off any would be suitors, that's not the whole picture. Since the late '80s, the corporate mandate was to milk the chemicals businesses of all their cash, no new research, only product development for new uses, so in reality, no new products in the pipeline. Inefficient plant products were farmed out to subcontractors to manufacture with the DuPont stamp on the package. This new company will make cash however, but for how long. Many current employees feel the new company will be scooped up by a larger company in a few years just for the product brand names and the ability to utilize the huge plant capacity many competitors do not have.
I always thought the golf course was pretty much self sufficient. They have several thousand members and are now open to the public.
Actually. MON needs cash bad with seed prices declining and all the GMO lawsuits against them. DuPont offered them money now and a much lower payment for RR traits and MON had to accept it.
How can anyone be sure of this? Dr. Fun isn't crowing about MON and hasn't made a positive comment about them in months. That says MON is getting their lunch money stolen by Pioneer.
You know when Dr. Fun is quiet, that means DuPont is doing well and MON is stinking up the joint.
oil is supporting DD value. I am holding on and a little scared that oil might make a big increase if Saudi Arabia decides to decrease pumping oil. so for they are publicly saying they will pump as long as oil is over $20 barrel. I don't believe this but it is at lease holding DD stock value up for us. Maybe another $1 today. that would be wonderful. I have way to much of my retirement funds in DD so I am on a razors edge.
