    Fellow Investors, look for all manner of public relations gloss tomorrow to cosmeticise the continuing weaknesses of this Management-shrunk conglomerate with unyielding overfat overhead. ...funfun..

  • 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..

  • Diminished & Demoralised DuPont Too Little To Succeed

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Folks, while the big money centre banks are too big too fail, the much shrunken and shrinking DuPont Company is now too little to succeed. For years, DuPont's muddled Management has taken a machete to the this conglomerate, and chopped off vital businesses and people. To compound the weakness, DuPont ditched the hiring of graduates from first-tier schools, and opted instead to save money by hiring graduates on the cheap from third and fourth tier schools. Moreover the depressing Diversity Model mandates hiring and advancement as a function of political games and political correctness with defined preferences by gender and colour.

    Now, DuPont no longer has the critical mass of incentivised high-level talent to innovate and compete against a slew of superior-managed rivals. And it shows. Belatedly, some analysts and many investors are seeing the intractable weaknesses in this long mismanaged materials and ag conglomerate. DD has started to roll over.

    For years, we have written and warned investors about the obese overhead dragging down results in this sprawling French-style bureaucracy in the dwarf state of Delaware. It takes a huge amount of money to house and feed some 100 DuPont Presidents, DuPont Vice Presidents and the like. The only thing no shrinking in this much shrunken and shrinking conglomerate is the number and outsized pay of the ruling elite.

    Kullman's Dynamite Drizzle

    Folks, looks like cancer-brained hecklers keep putting out vicious personal LIES & LIBEL because we dare to speak out on critical issues, which makes the imperious leaders of this faltering conglomerate uncomfortable!

    Such an acquisition of Albermarle by DuPont might make a lot of business sense, but Ellen J. Kullman,
    DuPont Chieftess has been demonstrative in her disdain for chemicals, even specialty chemicals. Given the fact Ms. Kullman is dumping her chemicals unit next year, 2015 and chopping off $7 billion of revenues, or 20% of DuPont's yearly revenues of $36 billion, she and the submissive DuPont Directors she dominates as "Chair" are unlikely to go for a chemicals acquisition.

    Ms. Kullman continues to embrace the illogical and absurd Shrinkage Strategy of her predecessor, the bumbling Chad O. Holliday, Jr, namely,

    SHRINKAGE equals GROWTH,

    and envisions DuPont as a global AG powerhouse, which in commercial reality means a lacklustre second-string player.

    As yes...What a great actress. Ms. Kullman hops up on the media stage and takes the dais at investor dog & phony shows, make-believing she is running the leading agriculture powerhouse on the planet in the 21st century. But the stark commercial reality is she is a distant second behind Monsanto in seeds, and a bit-player in crop protection/ag chemicals trailing after Syngenta and four other larger sellers. In food additives and enzymes, she plays second fiddle to world-leader Novozymes.

    It appears finally some otherwise intelligent investment analysts and business journalists are seeing the light at just how inferior the much Management-diminished and degraded DuPont has really become. The stock is rolling over, and beginning to tumble downward after all the hype and hokum spun by the big bosses in Fortress Wilmington under siege.

    General Murders Corporation

    Only a few weeks ago, when we questioned the faked figure of "13 deaths" constantly broadcast by dishonest GM executives and their PR con artists, dirty-operating shills for GM Management apparently protested and got every one of our internet comments on related news articles deleted, CENSORED, by CNNMONEY! What a sleazy operation, indeed. Nothing has changed since the days of Ralph Nader.
