If a product costs thirty times as much as the benefit it brings, and in addition, is capable of releasing a highly toxic chemical, one would not expect that product to be successful. If use of that product is mandated by government regulation, it might succeed in the marketplace despite its shortcomings. The product in question is the refrigerant R1234yf, made by a joint venture of DuPont (DD) and Honeywell (HON), and the prospective customers are auto makers selling in Europe, including Volkswagen (VLKAF.PK), PSA Peugeot (PEUGF.PK), Ford (F), General Motors (GM), Renault (RNSDF.PK), Fiat (FIADF.PK), Toyota (TM), Daimler (DDAIF.PK), and BMW (BAMXF.PK). Will we see a transfer of wealth amounting to hundreds of millions of dollars from these car makers and European car buyers to DD and HON or will the latter two companies have to reduce their earnings expectations?

Let’s look at other positives and negatives for DuPont that relate to the current business situation. Two big positives include high margins (especially in Agriculture segment) and a focus on reducing debt and using available cash to reward shareholders. DuPont also sold its performance coating business for $4.9 billion. Furthermore, DuPont is cutting 1,500 employees over the next 12 months. This might be a positive for investors, but it’s a negative for those employees, and it’s not a good sign in regards to growth potential. Companies don’t cut 1,500 employees when they’re confident in their growth potential. As far as negatives go, the biggest negative aside from the Monsanto situation is weakness in performance chemicals.

This would not be a blip but every politician in the world is watching the reaction to see if they can do it also. Congress may spend the next 2 weeks trying to figure out if the people would hang them if they did it to the people. I can tell you it would be the end to banking as we know it and start the worst depression in history as the run on banks would be merciless. They are already secretly trying to figure out how to get control of 401k money and use it to pay retirement instead of people controlling the money themselves. bad bad bad govt and politicians. We have to throw out the democrates even though the old school repups aren't much better they are all thieves. maybe I got that out of my system for the moment.
