  • The Rotten-to-the-Core Values of a Corrupt DuPont Management

    The Sunday Size-Up

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers, we have been bringing you the plight of DuPont's unprotected, un-pensioned, under-paid, and unsafe regular workers for years. But the totally unnecessary deaths of four decent DuPonters at the Company's run-down La Porte chemical factory last year is outrageous. off the charts. Here's what a top U. S. labour official, David Michaels, has to say:

    “ 'We saw serious hazards, which killed four people,' exclaims Michaels, who heads the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), in an interview with The Texas Tribune. 'It’s painful for us, and we know it’s painful for the families of these workers to see that the fine is only $99,000' — a number he called 'petty cash' for the multi-billion-dollar company."

    OSHA slammed DuPont with the penalty which is the maximum for the citations it issued last week following a six-month investigation of the toxic gas leak, reporting emphatically the hapless four workers who died “would be alive today had their employer … taken steps to protect them.” The Texas Tribune, May 23, 2015.

    No public response to OSHA's reprimand and fine from DuPont's customarily secretive and evasive Management holed up in Fortress Wilmington with their PR con artists and lubricious in-house lawyers.

    The Strange Disappearance of Boo Ching Chong, President of DuPont Titanium Technologies

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Folks, the Kremlin-like machinations in Fortress Wilmington never fail to amuse and amaze. Suddenly yesterday, May 21, 2015, word was put out that E. Bryan Shell has become the President of Titanium Technologies at the SHAMours Company. Hmmmm...What happened to the President of DuPont Titanium Technologies, Boo Ching Chong? DuPont's hyper-secretive Management does not disclose the slightest explanation in its official DuPont/SHAMours Company Press Release.

    Can anyone shed some light for DD shareholders?

    Inquiring investor minds want to know.

    Merely the morning commentary and query of one individual investor at large and long-time student of the dissimulating and deceptive DuPont Company...funfun..

    Bilk of America Upgrades DuPont!

    Investors, it speaks volumes about the corrupt culture of DuPont and its ethically crippled Management when you view the sleazy personal attacks and defamation systematically launched by admitted DuPont employees and Managers here!

    The undersigned has never been fired or terminated or laid off by DuPont or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates, a brazen repeat lie by a DuPont Management shill with a pejorative I.D. intended to harass.

    Any corporate Management whose rabid supporters and surrogates cannot tolerate a variety of viewpoints, is one sick enterprise with much to conceal. Such is the 21st century DuPont.

    Would You Really Trust the Nation's Leading Bank in Fraud and Law-Breaking in the 21st Century?

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buon Giorno,

    Folks, we got a big laugh over the sudden upgrade this morning, after the stock suffered an earthquake yesterday with the dreary prospects of the Empress of Imprelis continuing her Reign of Error. DD crumbled in a cloud of dust, down 7%, losing $5.00 per share. A whopping total of $5 billion in market value went up in smoke. The suspicious upgrade came from Bank of America, the same fraud-infested financial conglomerate which handles the lucrative business of minding the 401(k) plan for tens of thousands of DuPont employees and retirees. Is Merrill Lynch hot for some more rich fees, say, investment services and advice on M & A?

    In any event, the Bank's funny attempt to bail out Ms. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess, from yesterday's debacle, has presented another opportunity this morning, May 14, 2015 to re-short Double Dirty, DD.

    Hey, didn't the former bumbling über boss of DuPont, Chad OMG Holliday, Jr., serve servilely as a figurehead Chairman of the Board of Directors of Bank of America Corp before being disposed by now Chairman & CEO Brian Moynihan last spring after four years?

    Finally, why would any prudent investor trust the investment counsel from a Bank which has managed its own wealth so appallingly badly, having shelled out $92 billion in fines, penalties, and litigation judgements to date for its serial law-breaking?

    Merely, of course, the viewpoint of one investor at large and long-time student of the DuPlicitous DuPont in a decisive decline...funfun..

    Have DD Shares Been Sprayed With Imprelis?

    Hmmmm...Are the slight majority of non-thinking DD shareholders who swallowed whole Ms. Kullman's deceitful PR bombast enjoying their tremendous victory?...$5 billion of market value has been incinerated. Thank you, Fortress Wilmington. ...funfun..

  • These now very sickly shares are turning brown and withering!

    What a "World-Class Science To Market" from the Empress of Imprelis, Ms. Kullman

    ...funfun..

  • Greatly enhancing the value of our short positions in DD this morning!

    In the meantime, every investor and trader long your shares comes out a loser with your continued reign.
    Why, it is almost like your underlings sprayed DuPont Imprelis on the shares pre-market.

    Thanks again! Sincerely, Funfundvierzig...funfun..

    Thanks for the heads-up, Boogaloodown,

    Amusingly, more than one investment analyst has picked up our long-used phrase: Fortress Wilmington.

    If "Fortress Wilmington", doesn't describe the insularity and hyper-secrecy, not to mention the siege-mentality of DuPont's beleaguered bosses bunkered down behind thick walls and a filled moat, we don't know what description does!

    So much for the success of the concentrated PR campaign to CENSOR, smear, and silence the outspoken undersigned with thousands of vicious ad hominem attacks and pressure and protests lodged against editors and web-site administrators by the dark side!

    Gotta laugh...funfun..

    It's not just the huge quantity of cash diverted.

    This all-consuming fight and hate campaign waged by Ms. Kullman and her obese overhead of circa 100 DuPont Presidents, Vice Presidents and the like has distracted Management from minding the store. And the gap between the disarrayed DuPont and its superior-managed competitors has widened, redounding to the benefit of the shareholders of MON, SYT, BASFY, DOW, MMM, undsoweiter.

    ...funfun..

  • funfundvierzig funfundvierzig May 12, 2015 10:17 AM Flag

    Thanks for the heads-up. We did watch the CNBC interview and were gratified Mr. Peltz pointed out the evasive Ms. Kullman has been dodging accountability for the failed DuPont OptimumGAP trait and theft of Monsanto patented technology as well as Imprelis, while simultaneously accusing Mr. Peltz of wanting to destroy her "world-class" research platform.

    We have been writing extensively in Seeking Alpha, and it may be some of the Trian research people have seen our fact-filled commentaries and opinions on this corrupt conglomerate.

    Incidentally, the editors of Seeking Alpha generally maintain a civil forum and will not allow abusive, unprofessional DuPont employees shilling for DuPont Management to disrupt discussion with vindictive personal attacks on investors.

    ...funfun..

  • Such as Imprelis and Stealing Monsanto Technology If They Vote the MOLD Card.

    And dim-witted DuPont employees who submissively vote for Cull-Men deserve more erosion in their benefits, reduction in compensation, looted bonuses, and cancellation of their careers. They deserve to watch the continuing promotion of the inbred inept.

    In the meantime, comically and frantically Ms. Cull-Men is trying to cull Mr. Peltz in an intensification of her hate and scare campaign.

    ...funfun..

    Peltz on CNBC - settlement prospects are dim

    The hubris-heavy Headmistress of the DuPont School for Underperformance declined to appear on the most prestigious business news show, likely because...

    * She may know already she has won the proxy war with substantial help from the du Pont Family who continue to own a significant stake in their eponymous Company. See Nathan Hayward's supportive comments to the puppet press of Ms. Kullman, namely, the Delaware News Journal, and/or,

    * She feared the truth, the exposure of ugly figures and facts documenting the spiraling downward momentum of this dysfunctional conglomerate. Imprelis, Tell Us! And the failure of DuPont OptimumGAP, and the ensuing $1.750 billion litigation settlement for trying to steal Monsanto's patented GM technology.

    Potential Monsanto/Syngenta Merger Will Degrade DuPont AG Further

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buon Giorno, Buenos Dias,

    Readers, It's almost hard to believe that a decade and half ago, Monsanto was a dwarf to DuPont's Pioneer. For most of the 20th century, Pioneer Hi-Bred Int'l was the leading innovator in seeds and the largest seed enterprise on the globe. That was before it was acquired by DuPont and subsumed into a dysfunctional and suppressive DuPont conglomerate bureaucracy, commanded by agriculturally ignorant DuPont bosses in the dwarf state of Delaware.

    Under a brilliant Management, willing to take big risks, and with superlative R & D, Monsanto out-innovated, out-produced, and out-marketed the lumbering DuPont AG business, becoming the clear-cut leader in global seeds today.

    Despite constant PR dissimulation and disinformation from Fortress Wilmington to the effect that DuPont has "the leading position" in agriculture, the already wide gap between a lackluster DuPont AG (whose last big eye-catching "innovation" was the $1.2 billion bomb, the tree-killing DuPont Imprelis dandelion treatment for the lawn) and Monsanto will gap dramatically if the merger of Monsanto and Syngenta is effected. The big bosses of DuPont and their lubricious lobbyists will undoubtedly screech cries of monopoly and suffering of farmers, a disingenuous course they pursued unsuccessfully five years ago with the U. S. Department of Justice and states attorneys general.

    In ag chemicals/crop protection, DuPont AG plays sixth fiddle to Syngenta, followed by Bayer, BASF, Dow
    Chemical, and Monsanto again

  • Combination Would Throw the Klieg Lights On the Inferiority of DuPont AG!

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend, Buona Sera,

    Readers, the news just broke from Bloomberg that Monsanto is actively romancing Syngenta for marriage. The resulting union would mean Mongenta would not only be the largest and most innovative seed enterprise on the globe (Monsanto's current reign) but also the largest crop protection/ag chemical operation (Syngenta's current reign)

    The union's competitive position would be so overwhelming, DuPont AG would melt in inferiority. Will DuPont's big bosses and slippery lobbyists shriek "monopoly", "unfair"? Run to Justice? You betcha.

    In our opinion, this combination will have substantial difficulty meeting anti-trust muster in the United States as well as in the E.U.

    In the meantime MON in after-hours trading has soared up nearly 4% to 118.00, and Syngenta has rocketed up 9.96 or 15% to 77.

    Merely the evening commentary of one individual investor at large, with long positions in MON and SYT; short, DD...funfun..

    Based upon 2013 revenues, DuPont AG is a lowly number six in ag chemicals/crop protection.

    Nothing sets off these illiterate, ignorant slobs like running across someone who can read and write.

    Folks, the undersigned has never been fired from DuPont or any other employer. Is that all this stupid heckler can think of, a grade school insult? Comically, this loser cannot see beyond the lid of his lunch pail.

    It's 4:00 PM; time for him to roar off in his rusted 14-year old F150 pickup and pile into the nearest tap room, order up a couple pints of the cheapest beer, smoke two packs of cigarettes, and pick a fight at the bar. You know the type!
