    Syngenta Rival DuPont's Beijing-Style Brainwashing on Growth

    While Syngenta Expands, SHRINKAGE Does Not Equal GROWTH at the Diminished DuPont, No Matter How Much Propaganda To the Contrary

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend, Merry Christmas, Christian Readers,

    Investors, for 15 years, we have heard bombastic bosses of DuPont insist that by dumping scores of product lines and businesses (they could not manage profitably or honestly) they would create a glorious future of growth and gains for DD shareholders.

    DuPont Management has been tenaciously embracing a business model of SHRINKAGE equals GROWTH for the entire 21st century, always promising robust growth of sales and earnings, but never delivering. We do not believe prospects will change with the continuation of ditching businesses, product lines, and degrading people resources. Our disbelief in the executive spin and chatter as an individual retail investor may be shared by many long-term investors because the stock has never returned to its peak set in 1998 of 84 and change.

    In stripping away chemicals, based upon full year 2012 data, DuPont Management will be spinning off and purging 20% of all DuPont revenues and nearly a third of its earnings, 29% to be exact. It will take some time and some blockbuster innovations for the new "transformed" ag and biofuel-driven DuPont to make up the immediate wide gap.

    Moreover, DuPont Management is throwing away a sure thing, such as its global leadership position in TIO2 technologies and production for highly doubtful futuristic speculations such DuPont corn cob "gasoline" (costly bad-mileage ethanol from corn stalks and cobs).

    In the meantime, DuPont plays second fiddle on the world stage to Monsanto in seeds, to Syngenta in crop protection, and to Novozymes in enzymes and food additives.

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