  • All That PR Cotton Candy for Months Has Been Full of Hot Air

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend, Buon Sera,

    Readers, With sagging fortunes in her much touted but weakened DuPont AG & NUT function (unlike robustly growing Monsanto) Ms. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess was forced today, June 26, 2014, to disclose earnings for Q2 will show pronounced weakness, less than the $1.28 of the year before. Analysts had been projecting $1.46 per share.

    "…the revisions to the outlook we made today do not meet the expectations we set for our Agriculture segment or for the company," exclaims a defensive Ms. Kullman.

    After all the misleading PR bombast and braggadocio for months, commercial reality sets in deep inside Fortress Wilmington. The lumbering DuPont conglomerate is falling farther behind front-running Monsanto in seed biotechnology and five other producers of ag chemicals, crop protection, whose sales exceed those of the much shrunken and shrinking DuPont.

    More dramatic downward revisions for DuPont in sales and income are coming down the road, fellow investors. When Ms. Kullman dumps her chemicals via a spin-off in 2015, she will be knocking off 20% of her total yearly revenues, or $7 billion out of $36 billion, and a big chunk of cash flow which contributes to the obese overhead of this struggling conglomerate.

    Sadly for DD shareholders, Ms. Kullman is trying futilely to give DuPont a Monsanto-Makeover. She is a decade too late, and caught with too little scientific talent (DuPont Imprelis, tell us! We won't even mention
    DuPont OptimumGAP).

    Some "redesign initiative" indeed.

    Merely the evening commentary of one individual retail investor and long-time student of the degraded DuPont in irreversible decline…funfun..

    Comically, folks, illiteracy continues to plague the 'Tard of Tidewater, who doesn't know how to read or GOOGLE,

    "DuPont C8 Lawsuits, News Journal"

    ...funfun..

    We suppose when you are illiterate and resentfully uneducated and can't read, you don't know what is in the morning's papers from THE NEW YORK TIMES to the NEWS JOURNAL of Wilmington, Delaware. Such is the 'Tard of Tidewater.

    Gotta laugh...funfun..

    Fellow Investors, this onslaught of thousands of toxic Teflon chemical lawsuits may well have weighed heavily on prospective buyers of DuPont Performance Chemicals. In short, what investment banker or corporation wants to buy a fat package of lawsuits, with unlimited liability, and unlimited numbers of cancer-struck or gravely sick plaintiffs coming through the courtroom doors for redress? Hence, Ellen J. Kullman, DuPont CEO, and her top numbers man, CFO Nicholas FeignandFakeus, have been forced to get rid of chemicals by spinning the unit off to DD shareholders in 2015, 3000 lawsuits in the bag.

    Incidentally, DuPont Management has already been compelled to shell out circa $350 million with respect to this growing toxic Teflon chemical scandal.

    ...funfun..

  • Titans of Toxins in Fortress Wilmington Lied for Decades, Claiming Teflon Toxin Was "Humanly Harmless"!

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buon Giorno,

    Readers, for decades, DuPont's dirty-playing Management covertly and callously contaminated the drinking water of 100,000 women, men, and children in West VA and Ohio with an extraordinarily toxic, cancer-causing Teflon chemical, C8 or PFOA. When finally caught, the big bosses of DuPont and their PR con artists claimed dishonestly C8 is perfectly "safe", "humanly harmless", wouldn't hurt a soul.

    Now the proverbial chickens are coming home to roost. And what foul fowl they are, 3,000 individual lawsuits ensuing. This morning, June 23, 2014, the local newspaper of Wilmington is reporting,

    "Roughly 3,000 people in West Virginia and Ohio are expected to sue DuPont for personal injury by chemical contamination in the latest chapter of a long running saga that included a massive public health study.

    The suits, which numbered 1,300 as of Thursday, claim injury from pollution at DuPont's Washington Works plant in Parkersburg, West Virginia. The chemical in question is C8, or perfluorooctanoic acid, which DuPont has used in the production of products such as Teflon."

    As we opined some time ago, the besieged bosses of DuPont are only in the third or fourth inning of this massive scandal which continues to grow in cost and in damage to the reputation of the DuPlicitous DuPont (what's left of it)

    Merely the morning commentary of one individual investor and long-time student of the integrity-depleted DuPont...funfun.

    Folks, as you can see by the continuing vicious personal harassment waged by the resentfully uneducated trash in the General Motors Management camp, this latest exposure of gross negligence and consumer fraud must be a big, big deal in Ren Sin. The putrescence from this foul organisation grows with every passing week.

  • Another Nasty Consequence of DuPont Management's Unfettered, Sneaky Pollution

    The Sunday Size-Up

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Folks, DuPont Management spends hundreds of $millions every year in all manner of Sustainability Stunts and PR greenwashing, but they continually have great difficulty in camouflaging their illegal and legal contamination of the earth and peoples' bodies.

    A few days ago, highway engineers discovered that a bridge on I-495 adjacent to DuPont Company land was titling dangerously. A major beltway around crime-ridden Wilmington, Delaware, I-495, was immediately closed indefinitely, arresting daily traffic of 90,000 cars and trucks. Cause of the tilt? Turns out there is a huge pile of dirt piled sky-high on the DuPont land chock full of toxic waste. This mountain of dirt was dumped next to the bridge supports causing the bridge to list.

    The Titans of Toxins in Fortress Wilmington do it again, cost-slashing by abusive dumping rather than paying for proper treatment and disposal of production waste and contaminants. Imagine what the extraordinarily toxic, cancer-causing DuPont Teflon chemical C8, PFOA, is tilting inside your body as we write!

    Merely the Sunday Size-Up digitally penned by one individual investor and long-time student of the ethically
    contaminated DuPont Company...funfun.

    Folks, when you view the vicious harassment and personal attacks coming from the resentfully uneducated and unethical trash in the DuPont Management camp (as you see in the post by the heckler with the misspelled I. D. proudly displaying the Company's ticker symbol), you realise just how far this once great Company has fallen!

  • Smoking Gun: GM's Derelict Directors got a heads-up from the head of GM quality control in 2002, 12 years ago, about serious problems in quality:

    Reported by Reuters, today, Saturday, 06-21-14, 2:35 AM EDT
    By Marilyn Thompson and Ben Klayman

    "WASHINGTON/DETROIT (Reuters) - A former head of General Motors corporate quality audit warned the company’s board in a letter in 2002 that it needed to 'stop the continued shipment of unsafe vehicles' and 'recall suspect vehicles that were already in customers’ hands'

    'The letter from William McAleer shows that GM's directors and top management were told about serious safety defects in vehicles that were coming off the company’s production lines more than 11 years before GM recalled millions of vehicles for faulty ignition switches linked to at least 13 deaths. The contents have not been previously published."

    Strange no one in General Motors' top Management has the slightest inkling, not one whit of knowledge about any of this deadly defect in millions of GM's shoddily produced cars? So says the white-washing Anton Valukas "independent" report. Why Ms. Barra is as pure and innocent as Snow White. And so are her ethical dwarves in the senior executive suites.

    Folks, the stench of consumer fraud, if not gross or criminal negligence wafts from practically every corridor, conference room, executive suite, and now the Boardroom of GM's headquarters in Ren Cen, Detroit. And that is a big waving Red Flag for investors.

    …funfun..
