DuPont had a mixed fourth quarter and its revenues were below analyst expectations but the company managed to deliver an earnings beat. It saw strong volume growth in water and auto adhesives. The company has also succeeded in enhancing its grip on industrial-end markets such as healthcare and aerospace. There was a strong pricing growth as well that helped mitigate the impact of inflation. Despite the challenges in terms of raw materials and international logistic chains, Du Pont’s financial performance was decent. However, some issues have affected the results of the company, including a declining volume in the consumer electronics-end market and unfavorable market construction in North America. The management has claimed to focus on improving the internal work structure and technological advancement to enhance operational proficiency. They closed the M&M sale in the quarter. We give DuPont an ‘Outperform’ rating with a revised target price.
