A Jack-Up in Dividend, Likely To Be Cut After SHAMours, the Chemicals Business, Is Dumped In a Few
Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,
On first glance of the hype and hokum in the official DuPont Press Release this morning, there is little surprise, with substantial and significant weakness in earnings and revenues, particularly in the over-touted DuPont AG segment. Q1 2015 is yet another inferior performance from the inferior Management of a decidedly inferior corporation.
Remarkably, if not stupidly, Ms. Kullman and her PR con artists proclaim,
"We are confident that DuPont will continue its momentum, growing value for shareholders by leveraging our innovation platform."
Well, Ms.Kullman, that appears to be one of the most accurate observations you have made in a while. The momentum is down in revenues and earnings, and that downward momentum is indeed and in fact expected to continue on your clumsy command!
As for those "600 innovations" created in a single quarter just past, can you name a single one?
Merely the viewpoint of a single individual investor and long-time student of the diminished DuPont in continual decline (with momentum)...funfun..
And Ms. Kullman, that includes regular homophobic filth hurled by your self-announced DuPont Managers operating in your gallant defence! How does that square with your touted DuPont CORE VALUE of Respect for People?? Your internet junkyard dogs, avowed representatives of DuPont, are not making you or the DuPont Company look good!
LYING DUPONT MANAGERS CONTINUE TO LIE!
Folks, get a load of how this admitted bonus-paid DuPont Manager and homophobe lies to you, trying to pass off the pesticide DuPont RYNAXZYPYR as an "Innovation" of current CEO Ellen J. Kullman. This ag product with the stupid and forgettable marketing name was developed and introduced nearly a decade ago during the Reign of Error of Chad O. Holliday, Jr.
Investors, beware and be wary of the sleazy avowed DuPont employees assigned to the internet on PR damage patrol
Good Evening, Bonsoir, Guten Abend,
Readers, the screeching entertainer and petite, bald pate pundit from CNBC got married over the weekend in Brooklyn to a second wife, and real estate investor. "BYE, BYE, BYE, first wife; BUY, BUY, BUY, second wife!"
But his operation still found time to glorify and gush over his idol, Ellen J. Kullman, DuPont Chieftess, boasting DuPont has turned in strong growth in profits. WHAT?
Never mind, DuPont EPS has fallen year after year since 2011, a year DuPont's dishonest and deceptive Management has put out 9 versions of EPS under many muddled accounting methodologies. And DuPont EPS will likely fall significantly this year as well, 2015. And never mind this "strong" corporation hasn't a single high-profit, high volume new blockbuster product or breakthrough technology developed and introduced under the command of the Empress of Imprelis. Think about it. No major GM seed traits from DuPont, for example. No popular consumer product. Zilch.
Merely the evening commentary of one individual investor at large and long-time student of the degraded DuPont in decline...funfun..
Against Nelson Peltz and his Family and Investors Here? Your Admitted Bonus-Paid DuPont Managers and DuPont Employees Operating Over the Internet, CYBER-STALKING and CYBER-HARASSING?
Their In-your-face hostility and unabated hate towards competitors, such as Monsanto, and Mr. Peltz, and other independently-speaking investors shows just how corrupt, unprofessional and unethical the degraded DuPont Company you supposedly lead has become! These sleazy DuPont operatives, like it or not, are representing you and your command.
"...impressive record of earnings per share growth, increase in net income and expanding profit margins…" WHAT??
This is blatant Beijing-style propaganda, probably first promulgated from Fortress Wilmington under siege! DuPont's EPS has been down each year since 2011, and is likely to be less than 2011 again this year, 2015!
Investors, the continuing cyber-stalking and cyber-harassment by the stooges protecting DuPont Management over the internet whenever these 2545 Teflon chemical lawsuits are addressed is a dead giveaway this massive potential legal liability is of no small concern in Fortress Wilmington under siege.
Ms. Kullman, tell us transparently how you plan to handle what could be an enormous charge. Are you going to flip it over to under-capitalised SHAMours? Or put in some reserves on the books of DuPont? Or pretend you will win every case, and no action or disclosure is necessary?
Amazing! It has happened before. Whenever we mention the potential liability (our speculative opinion) that the legal tab for these 2545 lawsuits could be as high as *f*i*v*e*, billion dollars, the figure is CENSORED! Someone sure does not want you, the Reader, to consider this staggering possible litigation liability! What kind of dirty play is going on??
We're more than mildly curious:
How many versions of Q1 2015 EPS will Ms. Kullman and her CFO, Nicholas FeignandFakeUs, be putting out for consumption by shareholders and the media? How many muddled accounting methodologies? Recall the nine versions of DuPont 2011 EPS? That said, Mr. FeignandFakeUs does have impressive academic and financial credentials, having an M. B. A. from the internationally prestigious Grand Valley State College, somewhere in rural Michigan, per DuPont's official Webbed-Site.
And one more thing, how is this devious duo going to handle what may be a staggering legal liability for the pending 2545 Teflon chemical lawsuits in federal court brought by gravely ill plaintiffs or survivors from the secret pollution for decades of drinking water supplies in Ohio and West Virginia with DuPont's vilely toxic, cancer-causing Teflon chemical PFOA or C8. 100,000 women, men, and children were contaminated. We believe as much #$%$ billion could ultimately be the price tag for this consummate misconduct on the part of DuPont and its unethical Management. Will they try to dump the liability with the SHAMours spin-off? Watch 'em squirm.
Parodically posted but only in part...funfun..
Ms. Kullman's Numbers Man, DuPont CFO Nicholas FeignandFakeUs, Is Polishing His Fiction for Q1 2015 Report on Tuesday, April 21, 2015.
THE SUNDAY SIZE-UP
Good Morning, Bonjour, Guten Tag,
Readers, you can bet DuPont CFO Nicholas FeignandFakeUs and his anonymous accountants deep inside the dingy DuPont Building are burning the midnight oil to finish their work of fiction, Fifty Shades of Bray for Tuesday. Yes, they'll bray about "strong operational results" and "a solid quarter" as they customarily do, smirking at DD shareholders, and then say, but wait we would have done better but for those vague "headwinds" and "currency translations" and exogenous "economic forces". But we're on track for "higher growth" and "higher value".
Never mind the commercial reality that this once world renown chemicals and materials enterprise, largest on the planet in the 20th century has been so badly mismanaged for the past 15 years, it is facing its first proxy fight in 213 years. What a monumental achievement from the Empress of Imprelis.
What to look for in Q1 2015? More irreversible shrinkage in profits and revenues for the much touted DuPont AG & NUT shop, including the diminishing Danisco. And the desperation to jack up and pretty up an ugly quarter in advance of the GOLD versus WHITE election on May 13, 2015.
Merely THE SUNDAY SIZE-UP digitally penned by one individual investor at large and long-time student of DuPont in decay....funfun..
On the other hand, notthatbright and the admitted bonus-paid members of DuPont Management operating over the internet do provide an education of sorts to investors. Clueless and stupidly in initiating viciously vindictive personal attacks on independently-thinking investors and supporters of Nelson Peltz, not to mention Mr. Peltz himself and his family, these DuPont Management shills and surrogates show accurately how unethical and depleted of talent this crumbling conglomerate has become.
In addition, they clearly show would-be hires, new graduates, exactly what to expect in this suppressive bureaucracy: Check your personal integrity at the door, and don't dare attempt to think for yourself or embarrass your bumbling bosses up the line by revealing too much intelligence, or education, for that matter. Mediocrity is the metric which controls DuPont. And lying is the culture; Imprelis, Tell Us!
Intelligent investors cannot assess the value of a corporation or bank without looking at major developments in their key competition.
The undersigned is not about to start using one syllable words and degrade our literacy to countenance the lower mental class.
Readers, here is what the NEW YORK POST has discovered with respect to the sneaky and dishonest Yale Professor and paid puppet for DuPont Chieftess Ellen J. Kullman, April 15, 2015:
"Being friends with Yale School of Management professor Jeffrey Sonnenfeld certainly has its advantages.
"Three times in the past 16 months, Sonnenfeld has written opinion pieces or been quoted in the media supporting a company or CEO who was honored by his Chief Executive Leadership Institute or was a financial backer of his biannual CEO Summit, The Post’s research reveals.
"Another time, the professor backed DuPont CEO Ellen Kullman and bashed activist investor Nelson Peltz, who is engaged in a much-publicized proxy battle with DuPont.
"Kullman received a Legend in Leadership award from Sonnenfeld in December 2013."
"None of the op-eds disclosed either the financial backing the companies supplied to the Sonnenfeld-led nonprofit or that CELI had honored their CEOs."
The slippery Sonnenfeld is aping the ethically-depleted culture of the DuPont Senior Management he is profitably serving and Ms. Kullman basks in a trophy bought with DD shareholder money.
The Yale School of Management and/or SEC should investigate with dispatch.
What unalloyed corruption in Fortress Wilmington, folks.
dongledropper, we don't care whether or not you believe it or not as an increasingly obvious defender of Ms. Kullman. The fact is much of our lively language has been simply tossing back a few of the grenades hurled our way constantly by admitted DuPont Managers and DuPont employees. We notice pointedly you do not censure the operatives shilling for DuPont Management engaging in vile misconduct here. Speaks volumes, as you pretend to be an unbiased and balanced observer of the scene.
[Folks, looks like we smoked out yet one more shill for DuPont Management launching ad hominem attacks, who just happened to sail in after the fight against Peltz began in earnest. We wondered why dongledropper got so worked up after we commented with humour on the fact Ms. Kullman has made APPEARANCE (her fabricated IMAGE) an issue. Gotta laugh...funfun]
The DELAWARE NEWS JOURNAL is such a patently obvious puppet for Ms. Kullman and DuPont Management. Such is this corrupt dwarf state of Delaware. When comments were allowed from readers before the new format, many opinions questioning the leadership were summarily CENSORED by the obsequious editors and executives of this puppet press and public relations agent for the DuPont Company.
dongledropper, why the nasty personal speculation and self-righteousness on your part?
Contrary to your simple-minded conclusion and defenciveness on matters Kullman, we are on this board to discuss with fellow investors what we believe are intractable weaknesses in this long mismanaged conglomerate which should give DD shareholders and would-be investors pause. And we have a long history of speaking out thoughtfully on DuPont and many other corporations and banks at other investor sites as well, such as Seeking Alpha (over 3,000 opinions and commentaries).
We have no personal animosity against any individual member or DuPont Management or Director. We simply believe DuPont executives are hired hands of the owners, DD shareholders, and should be held accountable for their performance, including lying, deception, fraud, and gross misfiring. Imprelis, Tell Us. Toxic cancer-causing Teflon chemicals galore.
Investors, you can spot these shills for DuPont Management from a mile away. This hostile heckler gallantly defending Fortress Wilmington and his idol, Ms. Kullman, has only three posts to his freshly created I. D., all of them off-topic personal attacks against yours truly,
FAKE FUNFUN POST & I.D. THEFT and continuing CYBER-HARASSMENT BY THE UNETHICAL TRASH IN THE DUPONT MANAGEMENT CAMP.
The ultra-secrecy and "no comment" from gagged lower DuPont Management and the PR spokes-artists means Ms. Kullman doesn't want anyone to know her inferior DuPont AG business has been shrinking in the face of fierce competition from superior-managed, business-focussed competitors. She and her under-performing under-bosses have been too busy for the past 20 months fighting off an activist investor with nearly $2 billion in DD shares, in desperation to keep their grossly outsized pay and perks.
Hmmmm...Hasn't DuPont's customarily secretive and evasive Management been touting their DuPont AG business as "high growth" for months on end?
Seems Ellen J. Kullman in deference to her former boss and mentor continues to execute the grand SHRINKAGE Equals GROWTH Strategy of the legendary Chad OMG Holliday, Jr.
