    Fan, how funny, the resentfully undereducated stooges shilling for DuPont Management, the Kullmanites, are out cursing and launching cheap personal attacks against contributors to sabotage the free flow of ideas and opinions here. Speaks volumes on the corrupt culture of this lousy conglomerate and the appalling misconduct of the unethical low-life in its ranks on PR damage patrol.

    You must have inadvertently insulted someone who soared into the higher ranks of DuPont Management by virtue of preference by pigment or preference by sex!

    Gotta laugh...funfun..

    Hmmmm...Folks, what is the real deal here?... Speculating...A DuPont Director's perk like an interest-free loan from the Company, which can be used by the Director to buy DD shares? And he is wading in at 77, when only a few months ago, the woman who knows more secrets about this crumbling conglomerate than anyone, Ms. Kullman, dumped a third of her shares at circa 70 to 71, hauling in $35 million?

  • The Comical Degradation of the National Academy of Engineers

    THE WEAK IN REVIEW

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Readers, DuPont Management has a long and laughable history of PR stunts and fluff to make themselves look good. So we were not surprised to see the official DuPont Press Release this week trumpeting the election of DuPont Chieftess Ellen J. Kullman to the prestigious National Academy of Engineers, whose members have all performed some remarkable feat of innovative engineering.

    But what has Ms. Kullman "engineered", you might ask? Well, she presided over the most costly, biggest new ag product failure and consumer product fraud in 21st century corporate America: tree killing DuPont Imprelis, a now EPA-banned dandelion herbicide for the lawn, which has cost DD shareholders to date $1.2 billion! Some "engineering" milestone.

    And who is one of the big corporate donors to the Nat. Academy of Engineers? Why, the DuPont Company! And who chairs the Nat. Academy of Engineers Committee on Implementing Messages (public relations) according to the 2013 NAE Annual Report? Ellen J. Kullman.

    Folks, it looks to us like one of those phony conflicted trophies. The Academy has degraded itself, and its authentic members previously elected on the merit of their outstanding engineering achievements should feel debased by this DuPont PR "engineering".

    Who's next? DuPont CFO, Nicholas FairlyRidikulis, or E.V.P, James Bore-Well, elected to MENSA?

    Not only has DuPont Management's mandated, merit-free Diversity Model (forced affirmative action on hiring, promotion by pigment and sex) been a notorious failure (look at the very top of the pyramid), but three decades ago, to save lots of money, DuPont discarded the idea of hiring the best and the brightest, dismissing top-ranking graduates of first tier schools in favour of hiring from the third -tier institutions. The result: a conspicuous dumbing-down of the DuPont Company, and the dysfunctional, intensely demoralised mess you have today in the degraded DuPont of 2015. And you have seen $billion bombs like DuPont OptimumGAP, DuPont Corn Cob "Gasoline", and of course, Imprelis, Tell Us!

    Comically, DuPont's simple-minded "leaders" in their PR flim-flam have always tried to equate "Innovation" with the sheer number of patent filings cranked out by their patent lawyers in the DuPont LEGAL bureaucracy. Quantity always supersedes any noticeable quality.

    Bottom-line, how many high-volume, high-profit new blockbuster products and breakthrough technologies have come out of the much shrunken and demoralised R & D labs of DuPont during the reign of the Empress of Imprelis?

  • Siege Mentality in Fortress Wilmington, A Bad Sign for DD Shareholders

    THE WEAK IN REVIEW

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Folks, the lacklustre leadership team at DuPont still think they are king of the mountain, running the biggest, the best chemical and materials and seeds operation on the planet. How terribly delusional, they are. Nothing infuriates these old time Wilmingtonians isolated in the dwarf state of Delaware with it anti-shareholder, CEO-coddling corporate laws, more than to be exposed and held accountable for their misfiring and multitudinous mistakes.

    Well guess what, Ms. Kullman? You are "leading" a publicly traded corporation, and shareholders have every right to question your performance and scrutinise your blow-up bombs like Imprelis and DuPont Corn Cob "Gasoline". Instead in the week just past, the hubris-heavy Empress of Imprelis lashed out at major investor Nelson Peltz, sneering that she and her Management "would not be diverted by Trian's increasingly hostile attacks." An overly emotional Ms. Kullman is obviously taking this personally, and exhibiting a conspicuous siege mentality. And that is not good for the owners of this corporation, DD shareholders. Enough drama, Ms. Kullman should stand down for the good of the remnants of DuPont and its stockholders.

    Folks, it is hard to believe this now DuPont-damaged, second-rate seed business was once the largest and most innovative seed enterprise on the globe for most of the 20th century. That was before Pioneer Int'l Hi-Bred succumbed to the crushing DuPont conglomerate bureaucracy and the persistent cash drain extracted from Fortress Wilmington, as the contributor, hemant.varma, points out in his comments on this thread. ...funfun..

    Here is the answer:

    All of those outstanding DD shares bought back for $billions have gone right out the door again as compensation, options, etc for the grossly overpaid CEO and circa 100 middling DuPont Presidents, Vice Presidents, and like.

    Bottom-line, DD shareholders have been ripped off for sub-performance, muddled and confusing financial reporting, consistently missed guidance, and massive $billion bombs, such as DuPont OptimumGAP, and Imprelis, Tell Us! and a whole array of bio-foolish schemes like DuPont Corn Cob "Gasoline".

  • Readers, if TRONOX's leaders are serious about acquiring all or part of the DuPont spin-off, SHAMours, they would be wise to probe and investigate deeply all of the latent liabilities and staggering environmental remediation costs and compliance costs of SHAMours' ill-maintained, unsafe plants and facilities.

    They do not want to end up like the Koch Brothers and Koch Industries, which was sold a pig in a poke in 2004 by then DuPont über boss Chad O. Holliday, Jr. who dumped the then crown jewel of DuPont, Fibers. Koch brought a lawsuit cogently claiming it needed to spend nearly $1 billion to bring DuPont's misrepresented and out-of-compliance plants and factories up to safe and legal standards. The lawsuit was subsequently settled.

    And TRONOX management sure as hell does not want to take on the ultimate consequences of settling or paying out judgements or jury awards involved in 2545 toxic Teflon chemical lawsuits, which we believe speculatively might reach f-i-v-e billion dollars. [Let's see if Yahoo! inexplicably CENSORS our conservative guesstimate again! We value each claim on average @ $2 million.]

  • Persistent Rumour That TRONOX May Go After the DuPont TIO2 Piece

    THE SUNDAY SIZE-UP

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buon Giorno,

    Readers, we keep hearing the rumour that TRONOX Ltd based in Stamford, Connecticut, has its eye on the TIO2 business of the soon-to-be spin-off of DuPont Sub-Performance Chemicals. By virtue of recent acquisitions, TRONOX has become the largest fully integrated producer of titanium ore and titanium dioxide superseding the lumbering DuPont Company.

    We believe TRONOX is poised to strengthen its leadership position in the minerals industry. How? By dismembering SHAMours, and running off with the TIO2 arm and a leg. But TRONOX might face critical anti-trust headwinds. DuPont's customarily secretive and evasive Management hasn't said a public word.

    Where does that leave SHAMours whose people are about to occupy the dreary grey, 108 year-old DuPont Building downtown in criminal-infested Wilmington, Delaware? Stuck with towering environmental remediation costs from years of neglect and severe cost-slashing at its run-down unsafe plants and facilities? We won't even mention the staggering potential liability which could not inconceivably reach f-i-v-e billion dollars ( our
    conservative guesstimate) ensuing from 2545 lawsuits involving DuPont Management's covert and callous pollution of the drinking waters supplies of 100,000 residents in West Virginia and Ohio for decades with DuPont's insidiously toxic, cancer-causing Teflon chemical C8.

    Talk about dirty PR damage control, folks. Yahoo! has CENSORED our earlier speculative opinion that the thousands of toxic Teflon chemical lawsuits pending in the U. S. District Court in Ohio might represent a potential liability of $5 billion, f-i-v-e billion dollars. We speculate each claim on average might have a value of $2 million. There are filed some 2545 lawsuits to date.

    Where does the potential liability fall? SHAMours or DuPont? If SHAMours, will DuPont indemnify? If DuPont, does SHAMours indemnify? We stick by our speculative opinion the potential liability could be huge, as much #$%$ billion. Why in the hell is Yahoo! CENSORING this investor's opinion?? Who is directing and demanding Yahoo! to CENSOR this $5 billion opinion??

  • Ad Hominem Attacks Against Nelson Peltz & Other Investors Soar Over the Internet. Call Off Your Junkyard Dogs, Ms. Kullman!

    Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,

    Readers, you know an organisation is deep trouble when its avowed employees and Managers take to the internet to smear independently-speaking investors, not to mention Nelson Peltz. Many of those waging cyber-harassment against individuals have openly identified themselves, indeed bragged, they are bonus-paid members of DuPont Management and DuPont employees currently working for DuPont! We have no reason to doubt them, given their open disclosures and their detailed knowledge of the Company and the constant recitation of DuPont PR talking points.

    For years, for daring to question the quality and performance of DuPont Management, the undersigned has been targeted for systematic harassment and threats. So desperate are these sleazy employees and agents and supporters of DuPont Management to silence critics and shut them down, they resort to outright libel, outright brazen lies, anything at all costs for PR damage control:

    * We have never worked for any union or non-profit or government agency or environmental outfit or law firm or consulting firm.

    * Nor have we ever been fired or terminated or forced to leave DuPont or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates.

    * Nor do we represent any group whatsoever, We opine as an individual retail investor in equities.

    These dirty-playing DuPont employee/hecklers should know that internet threats and cyber-harassment is a criminal violation now in many states.

    What an outstandingly corrupt corporation. With integrity-depleted employees like these hate-filled hostile hecklers, no wonder this one-time reputable firm is going down the tubes! Mr. Peltz, time to sanitise Fortress Wilmington from the turrets on top to the bottom of the moat.

    Are DD shareholders interested in owning shares

    Folks, the easy-talking promoter and proponent of DuPont Management above is forgetting one big thing. Conoco had impressive success after departure from the oppressive DuPont conglomerate bureaucracy because it was run by its own people, talented and business-savvy Conoco people.

    Chemours, the spin-off pronounced as and constituting SHAMours, will be run by the hand-picked, obedient people of the Empress of Imprelis, Ellen J. Kullman, herself. For starters, her long-time protege, current DuPont Executive Vice President, Mark P. Verguano, will become the CEO of SHAMours. As long as SHAMours is weighted down like concrete with the tired and mediocre team from DuPont, expectations should be ratcheted downward big-time. Moreover, don't forget the potential liability, maybe as much #$%$ billion in our conservative speculative opinion, ensuing from thousands of Teflon chemical lawsuits from gravely sick individuals or their survivors in West Virginia and Ohio, might even tilt SHAMours into insolvency or (GASP) bankruptcy. How much will your shares in SHAMours be worth then?
