DD has totally supported the Dem party with donations and loaned executives for the last 50 years. Is it that you don't believe in the Obama destruction of the US economy or the tie to Obama and the Dem party? Apparently you did not own DD stock. If you did I hope that you had enough sense to dispose of it before now. Have a good day.
DD was supposed to get stronger after the CC fraud took most of the old liabilities. i was a total loser from the DD fraud and since I am retired will never make up the loses DD management perpetrated on stock holders. the whole damm bunch should be in jail. What I don't understand is why the 4 large stock holders don't revolt. There is very little the retail investor can effect with DD management but to speak our minds. I think it would help get retail investors back in the mkt by publicly firing the failed CEO.. She has to be in partnership with Obama in destroying the US.
I had to completely get out of DD, the first time in 40 years that I do not own any DD stock. I lost a third of my retirement fund betting on DD management in the split off of CC. My wife would have a heart attack if she knew how much money evaporated. Yes I blame the BOD and the sham leader. They have made and are making reaLLY BAD DECISIONS FOR THE STOCK HOLDERS BUT i WOULD BET YOU LARGE SUMS OF MONEY THEY DIDN'T LOSE penny
DD used to be great up to time DD bought Conoco and started borrowing money where creditors started controlling decisions by management. just old memories when DD was great. I know most of you reading this were either not born or babies but DD used to be one of the greatest companies in the world.
DuPont (NYSE: DD ) : 4.1% of shares held short as a percentage of float
Speaking of a stock that hasn't gone anywhere in a long time, chemicals giant DuPont perfectly fits the bill. DuPont, the Dow's second most short-sold stock, has seen its stock go absolutely nowhere over the last 18 years, not including dividends.
"What's wrong with DuPont?" you ask? The biggest hurdle for DuPont to overcome is that its business is highly cyclical. DuPont relies on global economic expansion to drive growth in its top- and bottom-line, as well as its pricing power. Aside from global economic growth, DuPont is left with minimal expansion pathways beyond going out and making a purchase.
On paper, DuPont looks like a great company to own long-term considering its ties to the agriculture industry and the need within the U.S. and around the globe to boost crop yields as the population increases. But what's on paper differs from what we've seen with DuPont's actual sales and EPS results. The chemicals business is highly competitive, the company could find itself (specifically its genetically modified organisms) tightly regulated in the future, and it's never found a way to avoid being heavily reliant on economic cycles. I suspect now could actually be a reasonable time to consider a bet against DuPont.

when are the owners of this company going to take action and fire the current CEO and her personal BOD. Seems everybody in management is fat and happy as long as the Sock holders don't revolt against them.

That’s the questioned asked by Citigroup’s P.J. Juvekar and Daniel Jester in a note on DuPont (DD) in which they defend their call for splitting the chemical company in two:

CC cut in dividend is pulling down DD. I am not sure why? I thought the companies separated but I guess like all other spin-offs it takes years before new management replaces the incompetent management dd gave cc.
