Investors that have been on the sidelines for Dupont stock may want to take a closer look for three reasons.
1) Decent Financials & Dividend: Dupont’s stock met Wallstreet’s earnings estimates and has a nice 2.29% dividend. DuPont’s Board of Directors declared quarterly dividends of $0.30 per share. The register of shareholders for dividends will close on February 28; the payment will take place in mid-March.
2) Proven Leadership: Last week, Dupont announced that former CEO and current Executive Chairman Edward Breen was taking over as CEO again. There is some additional restructuring in management. This should be welcome news for investors.
3) Stock Price Consolidation: It is a little early to say for sure, but it appears Dupont stock has finally hit support and is consolidating. AlphaBetaStock.com is not expecting a sudden bull run, but this could be a long term value investment.

This data supported oil prices and triggered growth, which was offset by Friday’s decline due to the closing of some profitable positions before the weekend.
