DuPont falls on earnings, but investors might want to buy on weakness
DuPont's stock has been a market beater so far this year, rising 37 percent to outpace the S&P 500 ($INX) by 15 percentage points. Perhaps today's stumble offers investors a chance to buy the blue chip on weakness. Shares go for just 16 times forward earnings, offering a discount of about 20 percent to the broader market. That's an intriguing relative valuation. Perhaps most attractive is DuPont's dividend. The share-price slide has boosted the yield to 4.8 percent.
