    I agree!! I had been a PPG employee. Charles B. runs the company very well. With GLIDDEN/ Akzo Nobel acquisition, there is not anyone (including Sherwin Williams) who can stop them. They are in the 3 largest retailers: Home Depot, Lowe's and Menards. This year's and next year's earnings are going to be interesting as consumer spends more on improving their homes.

    What does the word "bankable" mean?

    I would suggest your estimate, how ever you determine 300, are too high. Target price for 2014 based on earning growth is in the range of 233, to about 245, and 245 is a long-shot.

  • DuPont Hires In A New Brand Manager and PR Artist

    THE WEAK IN REVIEW

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend, Buona Sera,

    Investors, no doubt the DuPont Brand has been indelibly stained over the past few years with two colossal multi-$billion failures, DuPont OptimumGAP a failed seed trait, and DuPont Imprelis, a failed, if not fraudulent tree-killing dandelion treatment for the lawn. What to do to polish up the blemished Brand with the Red Oval?

    In back-to-back official PRESS RELEASES this Tuesday past, Feb. 4, 2014, DuPont Senior Management announced AnnaMaria DeSalva is named DuPont Vice President and PR head to manage the DuPont Brand. Simultaneously, current DuPont Chief Marketing Officer, Scott Coleman, is fleeing out the door in "resignation" as Ms. DeSalva rushes in.

    Hopefully for investors and farmers and regulators, Ms. DeSalva will be bringing in some much needed transparency and honesty to a disreputable organisation long steeped in camouflage and cover-ups. Imprelis, Tell Us! After the failed fungicide DuPont BENLATE, DuPont OptimumGAP, and DuPont Imprelis, it will be a long time before millions of farmers and growers and homeowners trust the soiled DuPont Brand.

    We wish Ms. DeSalva good luck, and Mr. Coleman the best in his new ventures, having escaped the highly-hierarchical, bureaucratically suppressive DuPont conglomerate in a state of severe identity-confusion.

  • Depends on how Mr. Boelter was defining leadership Zig. If by total revenues of course the DD perf. chem unit will drop in rank in any chemical company listings. Because they won't be counting revenues from other DD divisions after the split anymore. That's obvious.

    If Mr. Boelter was talking about markets or products that's a different story. If DD is a leading TiO2 producer before the split and ALL the TiO2 assets go the DD chem after the spin off, their leadership position relative to other TiO2 makers like Huntsman won't change one bit. Same can be said for Teflon or any other major product. If they were in the forefront before the split they'll be there after. Unless DD doesn't send all the assets from a given business unit to DD chem after the spin off. And you know that won't happen. DD wants to shed those perf chem. businesses. Otherwise there'd be no reason for a spin off.

    So in the interest of the unbiased reporting you claim to provide why didn't you mention this alternative? Yours is hardly the behavior expected from a self proclaimed unbiased indenpendent reporter is it? Did you just "forget" to mention it? Or did you leave it out because then you wouldn't be able to bash DD again? Zig, it looks like bottom line that the only thing becoming increasingly significant here with time is your credibility.

  • Bombast from DuPont Management Disguising the Insignificance of DuPont's Shrunken, Severely Cost-Slashed Chemicals Operations!

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Folks as an individual investor, we get a big laugh over the squirming and worming of DuPont Management in trying to sell their dismantling of the once mighty DuPont Company. For example, DuPont bosses have taken to claiming that DuPont Performance Chemicals about to be dismembered and spun-off "will be an industry leader when it separates and becomes a standalone company." [ Karl Boelter, Plant Manager of DuPont's Teflon factory, the White-Washing Works in propinquity to Parkersburg, West Va]

    "An industry leader"?? Whom do these fakers in Fortress Wilmington think they are fooling? DuPont's chemical unit has annual revenues of only $7 billion. Contrast that to Dow's yearly revenues of $57 billion and BASF's revenues of $98 billion. Or the smaller chemical concerns. Eastman Chemicals, $10 billion or PPG, $16 billion. Or Koch Industries which was eager to take DuPont Fibers of the hands of DuPont's bumbling erstwhile über boss, Chad O. Holliday, $115 billion.

    Bottom-line, DuPont is becoming increasing insignificant in the intensely competitive global marketplace of 2014.

    Merely the evening commentary of one individual investor and long-time student of the shrinking, sinking
    DuPont Company...funfun..
