    Whom Do the Fakers in Fortress Wilmington Think They Are Fooling?

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Folks, In her glowing DuPont Press Release late today, Dec. 18, 2014, Ms. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess, claims she will "create two strong, publicly traded companies with distinct value creation strategies..."

    How do you generate two "strong" companies out of one shrinking and considerably weakened and demoralised company, stuck with the same lacklustre Management and muddled direction?

    For truth in advertising, we believe the tired, legal liability-laden spin-off should be called,

    SHAMours Company

  • Q3 Came In Weakly; Will Q4 Follow Suit? Silence in Fortress Wilmington

    THE SUNDAY SIZE-UP

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    We are more than mildly curious: Will DuPont's customarily secretive and evasive Management be compelled by recent economic trends and their own lacklustre performance to downsize the earnings projected here in the fourth quarter?

    * Titanium demand and prices have been soft. Huntsman announced this week it is substantially reducing its TIO2 capacity in Europe, perhaps by as much as 30%. DuPont remains the world's leader in the production and sale of TIO2. Ironically in a few months in 2015, DuPont's bumbling bosses are planning to ditch DuPont Titanium Technologies, probably the last business in which DuPont is truly the largest and leading global producer.

    * Agricultural commodity prices have been sliding dramatically putting the squeeze on farmers, who may not consume as much of DuPont's over-priced goods and services as DuPont "leaders" have projected.

    * Will there be big write-offs and write-downs for some of the $billions invested in bio-foolish schemes, which so far have not panned out, such as the ludicrous DuPont Corn Cob "Gasoline". This silly "Sustainable Stunt" dreamed up by DuPont's pompous leadership TEAM is even less viable than ever now, with the plummeting petroleum prices world-wide.

    All year long, DuPont Dominatrix, Ms. Kullman, has been cracking her whip over her under-bosses to out-perform and meet unrealistic goals. Will they fall short in the final quarter of the year? Stay tuned.

    Folks, the abusive misconduct and hyper-sensitivity of the unethical trash in the DuPont Management camp (many of whom over the months have openly disclosed, bragged they work for DuPont as employees or bonus-paid Managers) strongly suggests something might be amiss!

    Folks, these two stupid remarks by the hostile heckler with the I.D. bbjonesinn are the only two comments she or he has posted since July 2014. And that is a dead giveaway, an exposure of an obvious stooge for DuPont Management.

    Any rational investor in MON shares must be aware of developments impacting Monsanto's chief rival in the agricultural arena. If you are so fearful a foreign thought might cross the border of your limited brain, then simply ignore our comments. Who is forcing you, sabre to your neck, to read every word and launch silly personal attacks?

    Folks, the resentfully under-educated hecklers are off the charts, trying desperately to protect DuPont Management from any embarrassing scrutiny.

  • Simple-Minded Management of Monsanto's Chief Competitor Keeps Ditching Businesses They Cannot Manage Well

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Folks, for the entire 21st century to date, you have seen the wheels cranking round and round in the hollow heads of the high-up honchos ruling this shrinking Delaware-based conglomerate: "Get rid of anything we mismanage and cannot produce big dollars from any longer. Cover it up with dazzling PR and spin about our brilliant transformation to a 'world class science and technology' boutique". To that end today, DuPont's big bumbling bosses announced the dumping of the venerable DuPont Neoprene business this week.

    What does relentless shrinkage do to regular DuPonters in the highly hierarchical structure of this conglomerate?

    First, you never know when DuPont's customarily secretive and evasive Management is about to dump your business segment or declare a redundancy and send you out the door mid-career.

    Second, survivors face decreasing professional and career opportunities for advancement and financial achievement. What opportunities for promotion and pecuniary gains remaining will be doled out in strict compliance with Management's mandated Diversity Model, making colour and gender decisive preferences.

    Bottom-line, investors, demoralised and degraded workers and scientists and middle Managers do not have much incentive to create and produce and make big profits for DD shareholders.

    Merely, of course, the morning commentary and observation of one individual investor and long-time student
    of the deteriorating DuPont in decline...funfun..

    Superior-managed Dow Chemical, which is now twice the size of the much shrunken and shrinking DuPont Company, continues to grow profitably, opening up professional and financial opportunities for its motivated work force and innovative scientists.

    And one has never heard of such bio-foolishness as Dow Corn Cob "Gasoline" or $billion blunders like Dow Imprelis or Dow OptimumGAP! ...funfun..

    Folks, this foul-mouthed stooge shilling for DuPont Management, "ddmiester" (sic), proudly flashes his affiliation with DuPont in his I.D., but comically does not even know how to spell, "meister".

    Ms. Kullman should be keenly embarrassed over the low quality of her uneducated cheerleaders operating over the net, and in particular this trashy heckler who is a "master" of nothing.

  • Extraordinarily Toxic Chemical, Methyl Isocyanate Killed 4,000 People, Injured 500,000 in India 30 Years Ago

    The SUNDAY SIZE-UP

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend, Buona Sera, Buenas Noches,

    Readers, in the week just past, December 2 marks an anniversary of appalling anguish. Thirty years ago, a huge tank of methyl isocyanate or MIC exploded at an ill-maintained Union Carbide chemical factory in Bhopal India. A massive toxic cloud heavier than air descended and spread rapidly in the middle of the night, killing thousands, and injuring a half-million women, men and children.

    Guess who makes this extraordinarily toxic chemical, MIC, and where? You guessed it. The Wall Street Journal and Houston Chronicle report that this vile Bhopal chemical used an an intermediate in pesticide production is made in large quantities right in the middle of DuPont's run-down, cost-slashed La Porte, Texas factory, ground zero for SHAM SAFETY. Recall that on Nov. 15, 2014, four unsuspecting workers were suffocated in a deadly release of another lethal chemical, methyl mercaptan. A typhoon of some 23,000 lbs of the insidiously foul stuff escaped La Porte, and was detected as far away as 50 miles.

    If there is ever a release of MIC at this negligently maintained DuPont plant, a toxic cloud could seep into thousands of nearby homes and businesses and local plants and refineries, with untold casualties. The ensuing potential liability could easily push the DuPont Company into irreversible insolvency, and ultimately bankruptcy. Nelson Peltz and all other DD shareholders should weight the negatives of the DuPont Management culture of SHAM SAFETY with utmost concern. Really now, how much is Ms. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess and her cost-slashing team saving on cut-backs and short-cuts at the La Porte factory? Is it worth it??

    Obviously, folks, the exposure of the ingrained SHAM SAFETY at the corrupt DuPont Company is a matter of hyper-sensitivity to the executive elite in Fortress Wilmington and their high-paid IMAGE consultants. Their unethical trash planted on the internet is out firing off vindictive personal attacks to disrupt open and candid discussion of these critical issues, critical for both shareholders and regular DuPont workers alike.

    Remarkably, these DuPont Management shills using fake look-alike "funfun" I. D.s show absolute callousness towards the hapless victims of DuPont 's toxic leaks and deadly dangerous workplace, and dare accuse us of what they are guilty. They even accuse the victims for their own demise! What a sick, sick operation, indeed.

    Finally, after three weeks, has anyone heard a single public word of reassurance or compassion or explanation from the DuPont Chieftess herself, Ellen J. Kullman, on this major corporate mishap at La Porte? Some leadership.

  • Corrupt Organisation Exposes Countless Workers and Residents to Serious Risks

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers, more DuPont DuPlicity shows up in the aftermath of the tragic deaths of four fatally gassed DuPont workers in the run-down DuPont La Porte chemical factory: OSHA announced on Monday, Dec. 1, 2014 that it had cited an UNSAFE DuPont for 11 violations carrying proposed fines of $120,300 relating to a leak from a tanker truck in May 2014 in New Jersey. The leaked toxic chemicals exposed workers at the Company's Chambers of Horror Works in Deepwater, N. J. to serious risks of harm.

    On the same day, Dec. , 2014, the Houston Chronicle reports,

    "Celeste Monforton, a Texas-based workplace safety expert and public health lecturer at George Washington University, said the violations issued Monday show that DuPont is on OSHA's 'radar screen.'

    " 'Serious violations of any sort are bad enough, but when OSHA cites an employer for repeat violations, there's no doubt that the company has gross deficiencies in its safety program,' Monforton said. 'It's a sign that something is wrong throughout the organization'."

    Well put, Ms. Monforton. What is terribly wrong with the DuPont organisation is a brazen lack of integrity and accountability on the part of the Company's hubris-heavy Management, a bumbling Management who continues dishonesty to substitute PR-driven SHAM SAFETY for the real thing to save money in their severely cost-slashed plants.

  • So Opines Willow Street Investments, SEEKING ALPHA, Dec. 1, 2014

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Readers, never underestimate the hubris and hollowness of DuPont Management. They want to grab a big chemical company, FMC to add to their portfolio of mismanaged businesses in the opinion of Willow Street Investments.

    How in the world would DuPont's lackluster "leaders" come to believe they can manage the businesses of FMC well when they have grossly mismanaged one business after another of the severely shrinking DuPont Company for the past decade and a half?

    For example, at the turn of the 21st century, DuPont Management grabbed Pioneer Hi-Bred International, then the most innovative and largest seed enterprise on the globe. Under the misfiring of DuPont's agriculturally ignorant bosses in the east, Pioneer starved for research dollars soon tumbled and fell increasingly behind superior-managed Monsanto, now the world's decisive leader in GM seed innovation and production.

    And investors should recall recent $billion blunders by DuPont Management and their marginal scientists in the ag arena:

    * The tree-killing dandelion herbicide for the lawn, DuPont Imprelis, which the U. S. EPA was forced to ban after receiving tens of thousands of reports of destruction and damage to mature landscaping trees across the country.

    * DuPont OptimumGAP, the commercially failed genetically-engineered seed trait which was supposed to compete with Monsanto, and cannot be planted by farmers in their fields "without risk".

    FMC Managers and employees, heads-up! DuPont's bumbling bosses have a long history of dismembering and demoralising and damaging those businesses they grab and subsume into the unwieldy DuPont conglomerate based in the dwarf State of Delaware.
