    "Do you think Merrill Lynch and Dupont are in bed together? "

    Keep in mind that the bumbling ex-über boss of DuPont, Chad O. Holliday, Jr. was Chairman of the Board of historically fraud-filled Bank of America Corp from 2010 until last year, 2014. The customer-hostile Merrill Lynch is part of Bilk of America, err...Bank of America.

    Whether the dirty-playing shills and self-avowed DuPont employees know it or not, cyber-harassment and cyber-stalking is a criminal act now in many states!

    What kind of trashy corporation and executive culture encourages its employees to smear and defame Monsanto, Mr. Peltz, and any independently-thinking investor daring to question the quality and performance of DuPont "leaders"?

    ...funfun..

  • THE WEAK IN REVIEW CONTINUED

    Readers, the same trashy smear campaign executed against Monsanto reared its ugly head in the past few months in the form of a smear campaign and ad hominem attack against Nelson Peltz and his Trian Fund. Never mind the Trian Fund has $2 billion in DD shares, more than 90 times the number of shares held by Ms. Kullman's hand-picked "independent" DuPont Directors.

    A clearly agitated and hostile Ms. Kullman has gathered some fresh allies around her widening skirt. Take for example, the hatchet job on Peltz by the Kullman parrot and Yale Professor this week past. A name-calling and data cherry-picking Jeffrey Sonnenfeld branded Peltz a "shark" and lavished unctuous praise on Ms. Kullman. Sonnenfeld sounded more like a late-night salesman for Ginzu knives than a dispassionate dispenser of academic intelligence.

    Not once has the not-so-good Professor in New Haven mentioned his idol, the Empress of Imprelis, commanded the biggest, most costly new ag product failure and consumer fraud in 21st century corporate America: The extraordinarily toxic dandelion DuPont herbicide for the lawn which has killed and damaged hundreds of thousands of mature landscaping trees clear across the country. Impact of Ms. Kullman's leadership skills on the Company (which Professor Sonnenfeld thinks are "outstanding")? DuPont Imprelis now mercifully banned by the U. S. EPA brought in $7 million in revenues and cost a staggering $1.2 billion in losses and charges.

  • Readers, our introduction on the above subject was on line for only 15 minutes or so and had already attracted several comments. BUT SOME DIRTY-OPERATING AGENT, OR PROTECTOR OR PROMOTER OF DUPONT MANAGEMENT DID NOT WANT YOU TO READ IT AND THINK FOR YOURSELF. Our words have been PURGED AND CENSORED KREMLIN-STYLE. What are they afraid of? Thank you Yahoo!

    What consummate corruption and sleaze!

    Given the cyber-stalking and harassment of supporters of Nelson Peltz and the Trian Fund, we believe Mr. Peltz should demand an investigation of the smear campaign systematically waged by DuPont Management and their agents and the enormous waste of corporate resources. And why the CENSORSHIP of the thoughts of investors daring to question the sleaze and dirty-play coming out of Fortress Wilmington under siege?

    Readers, these vindictive hecklers are here to protect and promote DuPont's unethical and under-performing Management. They are not here for civil and rational debate on critical issues confronting the corrupt DuPont conglomerate. ...funfun..

  • THE WEAK IN REVIEW CONTINUED

    Readers, many of you may recall the abusive smear campaign waged against Monsanto by DuPont's devious Management during the Reign of Error of DuPont Chief, Chad O. Holliday, Jr. It got so brazen and unethical, Hugh Grant Chief of Monsanto sent a published letter (Aug. 17, 2009) to Holliday with a copy to DuPont CEO Ellen J. Kullman, calling for "a special committee of DuPont's independent Directors" to investigate the deployment and bankrolling of "masked third parties" attacking Monsanto's business.

    Grant justifiably scolded the hubris-heavy Holliday and DuPont,

    "Your lobbying and communications that paint your company [DuPont] as a victim of limited technology licenses is dishonest, disingenuous and downright deceitful".

    We never saw a public response from either Holliday or Ms. Kullman bunkered down in silence in Fortress Wilmington under siege!

    Flash forward to the sleazy campaign degrading and defaming Nelson Peltz and his Trian Fund. Nothing ever changes in the ethically dwarf state of Delaware with its case and statutory laws stacked against shareholders and coddling CEOs and Directors.

    Readers, we don't have to tell you how the smear campaigns of DuPont's dirty-playing executives are picked
    up and executed as well by proudly avowed DuPont employees and bonus-paid DuPont Managers operating over the internet. You see their trash daily, whether it is throwing garbage at Monsanto and Monsanto's superior leaders or whether it is firing off viciously vindictive personal attacks on individual investors sharing their thoughts, thoughts which might embarrass the higher-ups behind the moat of Fortress Wilmington.

    The undersigned himself has been targeted over the years without exaggeration with well over 1000 ad hominem assaults and numerous threats of libel, with the implication of financially crippling lawsuits slamming us. . And we laugh about it. Can you imagine DuPont employees and Managers wasting so much time and resources trying to silence a single investor writing solo? What in the hell are they trying to cover up from exposure and candid conversation?

    The systematic misconduct of self-disclosed DuPont personnel on the internet, grossly unethical and unprofessional, is a dead give-away of just how corrupt this crumpling conglomerate has become and how incompetently mismanaged! And that is a wildly waving RED FLAG to all DD shareholders, including the research people of the Trian Fund.

    Readers, one of the cheap tricks for PR damage control the unethical trash in the DuPont Management camp are deploying is pretending that all dissent and opinions failing to praise Ms. Kullman and her tired team comes from a single source. Seems these shills and self-disclosed DuPont employees & Managers are so impregnated with the DuPont corporate culture of LYING, they would not know reality if it hit them upside their heads containing their shriveled brains.

    For the record for new readers, the undersigned posts exclusively in Yahoo! Finance under his long-established I. D., "funfundvierzig" (or "funfun" in Seeking Alpha investor forums)

    Show DuPont's Arrogant Bosses Your Discontent With the Two-Decades of Devastation By Proxy!

    Good Monday Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buenos Dias,

    Investors & Regular DuPont Employees, You have a chance to call DuPont's big bosses to task for their outstanding sub-performance for years. GO FOR THE GOLD!

    It takes an extraordinary effort and outstanding lack of talent to take the number one chemical and materials enterprise in the world from the last century all the way down to number 10 by 2008, with further decay since. Hold the destructive duo, Siamese Twins, Ms. Kullman and her mentor, Chad Holliday, responsible for the wreckage.

    Regular DuPont employees might want to keep in mind:

    * The purging of the 102- year old DuPont Pension Plan in 2006.

    * The candy shoppe compensation, forced "voluntary furloughs" without pay, frozen wages and looted bonuses.

    * The severe erosion of once promised healthcare benefits! SHAM Safety in run-down plants.

    * The killing of thousands of jobs; careers crushed.

    In the meantime, the Empress of Imprelis, Ellen J. Kullman, continues to lard herself with a staggering $15 million a year from the Board of Derelict Directors she commands as "Chair." Why, that is $1.3 million per month, nearly $300,000.00 every week.

    GO FOR THE GOLD!

    Merely, of course, the perspective of only one individual investor and long-time student of DuPont in decay...funfun..

    * The killing of thousands of jobs and careers crushed.

    And the whopping $1.2 billion the Emprelis of Imprelis blew on her big ag product failure and consumer fraud would have paid the meagre healthcare benefit ($2800 per year max) for struggling DuPont pensioners for five or six years. But now it looks like this haggard overlord in Fortress Wilmington will purge this small benefit for those who dedicated their work lives to this now crumbling conglomerate!

  • No Big Investors Are Challenging the Leaders of Superior-Managed Competitors

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Ms. Kullman basks in her uniqueness, first woman to man a large chemical and materials complex. But she has become unique as well in a uniquely negative way. None of the leaders of DuPont's competitors are being challenged by large investors.

    Astute investors and their funds are not engaging Inge Thulin, Chief of 3M Corp or Hugh Grant, Chief of Monsanto. No one is trying to find better managements to lead BASF or Syngenta or Novozymes. These leaders are too busy performing well for their shareholders, new products, innovation, growth, and the promotion of men and women as a function of merit and performance, not preference by pigment or gender.

    Seems the uniquely conspicuous under-performance of Ms. Kullman has made her and her sick, shriveled conglomerate a huge target for reform by the owners, DD shareholders.

    Stay tuned to see if the corporate patient ever recovers from years of abuse from the top.

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

    Boogieman,

    Ah...yes...look for more best-smelling fiction than 50 Shades of Gray from Fortress Wilmington for Q1 2015 results.

    You can bet that Ms. Kullman's numbers man, DuPont CFO Nicholas FeignandFakeUs, is up to the task. His team of little accountants in the bowels of the building are busy muddling methodologies and cooking up the data. DuPont's PR flim-flam artists will put on the icing for the media.

    Incidentally, according to the official DuPont Company Webbed-Site, Nicholas FeignandFakeUs has an M.B.A from the world-renown Grand Valley State College somewhere in rural Michigan. We're quite impressed.

    As for sheer confusion, recall that Ms. Kullman and her mediocre minions have put out for consumption no less than nine versions of 2011 EPS!

    Fortunately for DD shareholders and investors, the Trian Team will be all over the accounting, and will expose what needs to be exposed.

  • The Custom of DuPont's Bumbling Bosses To Dump Anything They Cannot Manage Makes A Fortune For Savvy Outside Investors!

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers, you have seen it time and time again over the past quarter-century: DuPont's talent-less leaders dump perfectly good businesses they have befouled with bad decisions and shoddy management.

    Now it seems the most savvy investor of them all has found value in a reformed DuPont business, car paints. Warren Buffett has bought 20 million shares or a 8.7% stake in Axalta Coating Systems from the Carlyle Group. Recall the Empress of Imprelis, Ms. Kullman, dumped DuPont Performance Coatings in 2013 for only $4.9 billion.

    Interesting how the acquirers of DuPont automotive paints and finishes took this business long mismanaged by DuPont's bumbling bureaucrats and turned it around with dispatch and superior direction. Now the value of the enterprise is so compelling the Oracle of Omaha is attracted!

    What other gems lurk and languish in the unwieldly DuPont conglomerate awaiting genuine business talent and energy? Profits, not PR; sales, not business slogans; promotions by merit, not by pigment and gender. Huge difference for investors, folks. Nelson Peltz is on track to find the diamonds in the rough.

    It's DuPont's throw-away Management which should be thrown-out.

    And now Ms. Kullman is doing her magic on Danisco, turning gold into mold, having butchered the once promising maker of enzymes and food additives into various fiefdoms in the DuPont bureaucracy and chasing away much of the original talent which made Danisco a great competitor to world-leader, Novozymes.

    The comical reality that Ms. Kullman has so many remarkably stupid and sleazy people around her skirt protecting her at all costs over the internet, squandering resources, shows investors the extent of the rot within must be massive.

    The Kullmanites like the Chadophiles before them, work 24/7 to deceive and smear what they perceive are the enemies surrounding Fortress Wilmington: DD shareholders who dare to think for themselves, especially Nelson Peltz,, Monsanto leaders and people, regulators, cancer-causing Teflon chemical victims, SHAM Safety whistleblowers at DuPont's run-down plants, the list goes on and on. ...funfun..
