Investopedia: Weak Volumes Knock The Wind Out Of DuPont
gets plenty of well-deserved credit for continually remaking itself
over the years, and maintaining a focus on markets where it can reap
meaningful economic returns. Just because DuPont is well run, however,
doesn't immunize it from the markets it serves, and the third quarter
saw a big shortfall in volume, revenue and earnings. While I think
DuPont remains a high-quality specialty chemicals company with a strong
dividend, the value case is a little more challenging to make.
