DuPont 2Q earnings and business segment performance announcements Tuesday captured the attention of analysts and media around the world. The company’s strong 2Q performance was the lead business story for several influential global media outlets Tuesday, including The Wall Street Journal, Bloomberg, Reuters and Associated Press newswires.
CNBC-TV (U.S.) highlighted DuPont throughout Tuesday. On CNBC-TV’s “Squawk Box,” Frank Mitsch, Managing Director & Senior Equity Research Analyst, BB&T Capital Markets, said, “I was glad to hear all the rain in the forecast, because frankly, DuPont is on fire. They’re firing on all cylinders. All of their businesses are showing volume growth up double-digits.”
DuPont Chair & CEO Ellen Kullman appeared on the CNBC-TV “Street Signs with Erin Burnett” show that is broadcast from the floor of the New York Stock Exchange. The interview was headlined, “DuPont Dazzler.”
Erin said that DuPont and its 2Q performance were “the talk of the floor” Tuesday. “DuPont is a ‘sea of green today,’” she said.
During the interview, Ellen said, “We’ve been talking about slow, sequential improvements over the last three quarters. And, that’s certainly what we continue to see. We’re very pleased with our top line growth in all segments and in all regions of the world.”
