Bull Board Press (BBP)
Dupont's board announced today that they are dumping the
top three levels of mgmt and opting to use Yahoo's
bulletin board posters for corporate direction and
In a prepared statement from the
Dupont board the shake up was seen as a step to
outsource "Better Ideas for Less"... As always Dupont feels
they are at the leading edge....and in this case they
are out in front of the trend for corporations to
"listen" to the perspectives coming from the greater
global synergy, knowledge, and experience on Yahoo's
BBP tried to contact Chad for comment but he is on
Holiday and was unable to be reached on by corporate cell
phone, portable PC, Palm, pager, Iridium phone, FAX,
Yahoo email, or smoke signals. BBP is attempting to
hail him on the MTC bulletin board since rumors abound
that he has frequented there over the last six months
looking for tips on what direction to take
Copyright BBP, duplication without expressed written
consent would be considered about as fraudulent as this
whole post. LOL
the participant/taxpayer may use 5-year averaging
(sometimes 10) for distributions. The same applies to heirs.
I'm quite certain this option is not available for
IRA's. Really not important, though. As I understand it,
the last year that anyone can use the averaging
options is 1999.
Loans from 401(k) assets are
permissible -- not so with IRA's.
If I think of other
401(k) advantages, I will let you know.
There was a financial advisor column in the
Houston paper recently that indicated there were diferent
survivor or tax consequences between a 401k and IRA. The
column suggested the 401k had advantages. Wish I could
remember the exact day so I could quote it directly.
However if your going to spend the money and die broke it
Now you're talking, I assume that this
will be "Genetically Altered" which
down the road could provide some interesting liability
suits? I wonder if smokers would have problems smoking
Marboro's made from Altered Tobacco
to Fattboyy and Skeptic, there is really nothing
that we can do by posting on this board to change the
company or to impact the stock price. Therefore, I think
it is relevant to discuss investment
Also, it is not entirely shocking that DD would dip
after the split-off, at least "momentarily" (whatever
that means). I am a bit surprised that it has now
dropped to the low 60s, but I posted about a month or
more ago not to be suprised to see the low 60s, but
that that might be a buying point. Anyway, pre
split-off, investors had the option of taking COC or staying
with DD. This alone would drive the price of DD up. An
option always has value. Post split, there is no option
left. Therefore, downward pressure on the stock is not

Times up buddy. You know how it is these days...if you
aren't 'core or cost effective' you get outsourced. No
reason the rules should be any different for you.
Selling some oil and buying some seeds has been your
mark...let somebody else remake the company now...you've
past your usefulness.
If you don't announce a
key life science merger or buyout (and further sales
of laggard commodity businesses) by year end I'd say
you oaught to make like a Y2K bug and disappear.
Geez, now even those dog food makers in STL are
dumping this dog.
"Ralston Purina exchanges DuPont
shares" See Yahoo news on DD.
What an insult
Chad....and here I put my money on you over the Arch-man.
here's what we do. Let's get DD to divest itself
of COC and then invest in Pioneer (but not the
speakers) and then . . . and then . . . and then make
tobacco that will not cause cancer and run MO out of
business and make trillions and get rich.
that's what WE are gonna do.
Seems like while we are all taking a course in
IRA's and 401K's the horses are
all running out the barn door!
We need to get this
stock turned around or it really won't make
bit of difference whether your investment is in
or After-Tax dollars, because there won't be any
