  • Investors and Traders Losing Confidence in the Competency-Challenged Kullman & Her VISION?

    Good Afternoon, Bon Soir, Guten Abend,

    Readers, seems at least a few investors and traders may be having second thoughts over the great and glorious VISION promulgated with constant PR puffery by Ellen J. Kullman DuPont "Chair" & CEO and her submissive 100 DuPont Presidents, Vice Presidents and the like.

    The shares of this soon-to-be non-chemical and ag conglomerate are selling off briskly this morning, down a 1.6% minutes ago, to 64.36.

    Unfortunately for long-suffering DD shareholders, the stock value is shrinking along with the shrinking going on everywhere in Fortress Wilmington, assets, product lines, business segment, reputation, revenues, profits, and jobs.

    Merely the afternoon commentary of one individual retail investor and long-time student the sliding and slipping DuPont Company...funfun..

    Oops, folks, looks like the undeniable reality of the stock market is firing up the unethical and resentfully under-educated trash in the DuPont Management camp, some of whom do not even know how to spell their own identification names!

    Mislead and Mismanaged for One & a Half Decades

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    DuPont is in serious trouble, intractable trouble which will plague this shrinking conglomerate for years to come. Ms. Kullman is ditching 200 years of core competency in chemistry, what made DuPont a world-leading giant in the previous century, and becoming a second-rate player in the agricultural and nutritional arena. Trouble is Ms. Kullman is too late by a decade to do a successful imitation of superior-performing Monsanto.

    Even more significantly, after severely cost-slashing and shuttering laboratories and facilities, jettisoning entire businesses, and dumping thousands of veteran men and women onto the streets, Ms. Kullman lacks the critical mass of scientific and managerial talent to compete successfully and catch up to her intensely focussed corporate rivals. Two multi-$billion product failures, the tree-killing dandelion lawn herbicide, DuPont Imprelis, and the failed genetically-engineered seed trait, DuPont OptimumGAP, showed us clearly how depleted DuPont has become in innovation and commercialisation.

    Ms. Kullman embraces an illogical and so far failing business strategy of "Shrinkage Equals Growth." It hasn't worked and it won't. She is well on her way to running the Eastman Kodak of non-chemicals and ag.

    Merely the opinion of one individual investor and long-time student of the degraded DuPont in decline…fun

    BASF, the world largest chemical enterprise continues to grow, in contrast to the Management-degraded and diminished DuPont, which continues to shrink. The Holliday/Kullman polestar strategy for the 21st century, namely SHRINKAGE Equals GROWTH has not really ever worked out, notwithstanding all the hot-air bombast by DuPont "leaders" and their PR con artists that this strategy is adding value and creating strong growth.

    Folks, the reality is DuPont bankrolls the American Chemical Society in a major way along with other big chemical corporations. So these trophies are essentially self-awarded prises!

    The American Chemical Society are lobbyists and PR agents for DuPont and the chemical industry, not some unconnected, objective group.

    What farmer or property owner would trust the dopes of DuPont after three multi-$billion product disasters: DuPont BENLATE, DuPont OptimumGAP, and tree-killing DuPont Imprelis? What a premier line-up of failure, brought to you by the outstandingly mediocre Management of DuPont and the bumbling bosses of DuPont AG!

    Should Investors Follow Nelson Peltz?

    Folks, as you can see from the truly stupid and abusive ad hominem attacks fired off by the uneducated trash in the DuPont Management camp, you can quickly get a good idea of why this floundering conglomerate is in such big trouble, Many of these vindictive hecklers have personal ties with DuPont or worked for DuPont at some point. ...funfun..

  • Q2 2014 Results Show Continuing and Pervasive Weakness at the Shrinking DuPont

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers, Follow Nelson Peltz? At this point, most individual investors do not know what this savvy activist investor will do with his significant position in DuPont. Peltz has disclosed his "conversations" with DuPont Management will wrap up in the middle to end of the summer. He may reduce or eliminate his position in DD, or increase it, or leave it static.

    Recall Ms. Kullman's first response last summer upon learning of the Peltz stake was to summon her Directors whom she dominates as "Chair". The obedient Board popped a poison pill into the gut of DuPont making it repulsive to would-be acquirers. Ms. Kullman also larded herself with a $50 million platinum parachute in the event she loses control!

    Investors should not be misled by the two cents hike in the quarterly dividend to 47 cents. After spinning off its chemicals unit in 2015, DuPont will lose $7 billion in revenue or 20% of total revenues of circa $36 billion a year. Gone will be a substantial cash flow, and a contribution to DuPont's obese overhead. It is possible the 47 cents a share dividend cannot be maintained.

    Today's announced quarterly results continue to demonstrate pervasive weakness in this struggling conglomerate, which amazingly was the largest and leading chemical enterprise on the globe for practically all of the last century. Shoddy direction and mismanagement have laid DuPont low in the 21st century.

  • Activist Investor Wants To Simplify Complex Conglomerate Lumbering with Obese Overhead!

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Fellow Investors, on July 16, 2014 at a CNBC investment pow-wow at the Pierre Hotel in New York City, activist investor, Nelson Peltz, disclosed he was having "conversations with DuPont", which will wrap up at "the middle to end of summer."

    Peltz announced his strategy for what he called the DuPont "complex conglomerate", with reference to DuPont's obese overhead in the sale of its auto paints to Carlyle. Peltz believes DuPont should be simplified. Peltz said his "conversations" "will have an end one way or another", which suggests to us he may be meeting truculence and arrogance in Fortress Wilmington under siege. If Peltz feels stymied by DuPont "leaders", he may decide to reduce or eliminate his holdings in DuPont's now price softening shares, in our opinion.

    Recall the first avaricious action on the part of Ellen J. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess on learning last summer that Peltz had acquired a significant stake in DuPont was to summon her submissive DuPont Directors she dominates as "Chair". Her rubber-stamping Directors proceeded to pop a poison pill into the belly of DuPont making the conglomerate repulsive to would-be acquirers. The obedient Board also larded Ms. Kullman a personal platinum parachute of $50 million in the event she "suffers" a loss of control.

    Our take: Peltz has been disappointed after three years in a row of missed guidance, and the bumbling bureaucracy of DuPont. He may well liquidate and move on.

    What does DuPont do?

    Paints have already been dumped along with fibres such as nylon. Next year, Teflon, TIO2, refrigerants and acids are to be ditched via a spin-off. What is left? A second-rate player in seeds and ag chemicals, along with DuPont's absurd DuPont Corn Cob "Gasoline" and carpets and clothes made out of corn! Not a bright future, indeed.

    No doubt about it, DuPont is undergoing a Sears-style liquidation by its simple-minded leadership TEAM, whose polestar business model is SHRINKAGE equals GROWTH. Never has, never will.

    Nelson Peltz in Conversations with DuPont

    Fan of Fun, Four months ago, we put forth this recommendation to the new public relations leader of DuPont. It appears she may have listened and taken action to clean up the internet, removing viciously vindictive PR operatives shilling for DuPont Management:

    "Ms. Annamaria DeSalva, Curb Your Lying & Stalking DuPont Employees Over the Net!

    "These Abusive & Sub-Educated Avowed DuPont Employees Are Making DuPont and its People Look Bad, Real Bad,

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    "Fellow Investors & Readers, Frankly and personally, we had high hopes that when Annamaria DeSalva came over from highly reputable Pfizer to head up the public relations function of DuPont on March 1, 2014, she would begin to clean up the unethical trash employed by DuPont operating over the internet. Take for example, the proudly self-disclosed DuPont representative with the I.D. "notthatblind" who never misses a chance to tell us she loves her career in DuPont AG. This zealous DuPont employee spends her working hours launching smears and lies against DuPont's superior-managed competitors, mostly Monsanto, as well as waging a constant campaign of LIES & LIBEL and harassment against independently-speaking investors and commentators over the internet on many boards, including GM, BASF, Dow Chemical, and Syngenta.

    "Any corporation, whose avowed employees and Management surrogates have to resort to this foul misconduct to stomp out dissension and suppress embarrassing factual information, is one sick unethical organisation. For the sake of DuPont and its leadership, Ms. DeSalva you need to put out the word, down the line to those representing DuPont on the internet to behave themselves and stop the sleaze. Like it or not, these hostile DuPont hecklers with their unprofessional misconduct are creating a very shabby public IMAGE of DuPont for all to see, particularly younger women and men whose primary source of information and knowledge is the
    internet." ...funfun..
