    What A Real, Not A Make-Believe Technology Company Looks Like!

    Superior-Managed IBM Has Blow-out Earnings & Outlook in Tough Environment

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buon Giorno,

    Readers, for weeks and months now, DuPont Chieftess Ellen Kullman as well as her subservient DuPont Presidents and Vice Presidents, has been whining profusely about soft markets, de-stocking, and "headwinds", anything external to excuse her exceptionally poor performance for the past two quarters and the entire year 2012. Simultaneously, Ms. Kullman and her PR con artists brag that DuPont is a "world-class science-powered technology firm," not a chemical conglomerate.

    Maybe Ms. Kullman should have her corporate servants lower the drawbridge of Fortress Wilmington so she can come down from her tower and see what a real technology firm looks like. Take IBM for instance. In a tough global business environment, IBM just reported vibrant, solid Q4 2012 earnings and a glowing outlook for 2013. In active market trading this morning, Jan. 23, 2013, IBM has soared up over 5%, 11 bucks to above 207.

    In short, IBM is a genuine technology company, not a faked one like DuPont, a lumbering conglomerate, mostly in ordinary chemicals and materials. IBM's superior managers and employees know how to get impressive results in the midst of rough and changing economic times. They don't spend their time whining about "headwinds" and dodging accountability or engaging in fraud and deception as the do at the disreputable DuPont Company in decline.

    Merely the morning comments of one individual investor, DD & IBM shareholder, and long-time student of the dissimulating DuPont...funfun..
