    In ditching two centuries of core competency in chemicals, DuPont's bumbling bosses will be tossing out the window $7 billion of annual sales, or 20% of total DuPont sales of $36 billion along with circa 20% of its net income and a huge swath of cash flow and contribution to the Company's obese overhead and dividend payout. Not a favourable development for DD shareholders, in our opinion.

    Moreover, DuPont's inept "leaders" will be dumping about the last business in which DuPont is the true global leader and largest producer, Titanium Technologies.

    So the miniaturisation of the once mighty DuPont Company goes on and on.

    Wow, folks, the trash in the DuPont Management camp keeps putting out his outright lie to defame us because we dare to question the performance and quality of DuPont "leadership".

    We have never been fired or terminated or laid-off or made redundant by DuPont or any of its subsidiaries or affiliates. As a matter of fact as we have learned from friends who are DuPonters over the years, no one is fired at DuPont because the standards and expectations are so low for their Managers and non wage-roll employees!

    Gotta laugh at their desperate attempt at PR damage control. The dirty ole "fired disgruntled employee" trick.

    Hey, resentfully under-educated trash, shut up!

    D ouble D reary is headed down this morning, as more and more investors come to the conclusion breaking apart and liquidating this intractably troubled, long mismanaged conglomerate still will not yield that much in value. Even your heroine, Ms. Kullman, dumped a huge wad of DD stock @ 72 and 70 a few days ago. And you are not bright enough to follow her lead.

    Such is the lower mental class, folks.

    One more point, Kallenberg,

    If you are so grossly offended by any parodic mention of Ebola, maybe you should direct your ire at Steven Colbert and Jon Stewart and their brand of humour. Perhaps, you need to grow up, and quit being puerile and prissy.

    Why the trashy personal attack? Spare us the obnoxious lecture and self-righteousness.

    "funfun" is our long-established I.D, a truncation of funfundvierzig. It is not the undersigned who has downplayed and spun this growing deadly crisis or lied about it to the American people. Look to the White House and the CDC and the slippery, ever so politically correct politicians.

  • DuPont Chieftess Continues Degradation Perpetrated by Her Predecessor

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,

    Investors,

    For the last 16 years, DuPont has had only two CEOs, Chad O. Holliday, Jr, a bumbling overlord from Nashville, Tennessee whose only earned degree is an undergraduate diploma in "industrial engineering", and his pet pupil and successor Ellen J. Kullman. This destructive duo eagerly embraced an illogical and faulty business paradigm that Shrinkage Equals Growth. It never worked out. By 2008, DuPont had dramatically declined and shrunk to the number eight position amongst global chemical enterprises in revenues, having held the mighty number one position for practically all of the 20th century.

    The Company is in a state of liquidation, being chopped apart and dismembered. Next year, 2015, with the ditching of chemicals via a spin-off to DD shareholders, DuPont will lose $7 billion of revenues or about 20% of its total revenues of $36 billion per year. Out the window goes a very substantial cash flow which has helped feed the obese overhead sandbagging this unwieldy conglomerate and which contributes to the DuPont dividend pay-out.

    Other than a pesticide with a customer-hostile name which cannot be spelled, pronounced, or remembered, DuPont RYNAXZYPYR, we cannot think of a single new blockbuster product or breakthrough technology coming out of the once renown but now shrunken and demoralised DuPont R & D laboratories in the past five years. Costly and bio-foolish DuPont Corn Cob "Gasoline" just doesn't cut it, as shrewd activist investor Nelson Peltz has pointed out cogently.

    After 212 years, this famous Company is disappearing product by product, business by business. Buzzwords substitute for business sense; political games trump profits, and PR slogans supersede sales.

    Merely the perspective of one individual investor and long-time student of DuPont in decline…funfun..

  • Example of the Fumbling and Stumbling of DuPont "Leaders"

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

    Readers, according to Bloomberg this morning, Oct. 8, 2014, Nelson Peltz has zeroed in on DuPont's over-touted cellulosic ethanol plant in Nevada, Iowa as an example of "speculative and expensive corporate science projects" that have destroyed value for the Company's shareholders.

    Exceptionally astute investor Nelson Peltz is absolutely correct about the obese overhead and muddled management of this once-largest and most prestigious chemical and materials enterprise on the globe for practically all of the last century,

    Whom do the fakers in Fortress Wilmington think they are fooling? DuPont's cockamamie Corn Cob "Gasoline" (bad mileaget ethanol) is environmentally destructive and economically disadvantaged. DD shareholders are likely never to see a dime of profit from this bio-foolish scheme of DuPont executives, when all the costs are properly apportioned and allocated. A $billion blunder? Another DuPont Imprelis, a $2 billion bomb?

    The deteriorating DuPont is in dire need of Alan Mulally-type outsider or Meg Whitman-type outsider with fresh ideas, integrity, and extraordinary leadership skills to run this diminished DuPont.

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

  • CEO Brian Moynihan Takes Over the Top Spot of Bank of America

    Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag, Buon Giorno,

    Folks, the news broke late October 1, 2014, the former Chief of DuPont, Chad O. Holliday, Jr has been demoted on the Board of Directors of Bank of America Corp, replaced by current CEO Brian Moynihan, who will serve in both now conflicted roles at this Bank with such a long sordid history.

    Query as to why this bumbling former overlord of the DuPont Company who presided over DuPont's dramatic decline and shrinkage from 1998 to 2009 and a cliff-dive of its stock from 84 to 16 was ever selected as Chairman of Bank of America Corp in the first place. As veteran bank analyst Mike Mayo declared with precision, the hollow Holliday is "a figurehead with no banking experience".

    Jack Bovender of the highly successful hospital chain HCA is a breath of fresh air for the Board and the Bank. Bovender would have been the superior choice as Chairman.

    Showing Chad O. Holliday, Jr. the door is a very good move on the part of Mr. Moynihan, but for the glaring fact as CEO, Moynihan will be reporting to himself as Chairman of the very Board of Directors who assess his performance and undoubtedly continue to lard him with an increasingly huge personal fortune in pay and perks. If that is not a conflict of interest and poor corporate governance we don't know what is. It seems the top "leaders" of this corrupt financial conglomerate simply cannot deal on the level for the benefit of long-suffering BAC shareholders as well as customers.

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