Dow Chemical (DOW -1.7%) says it will rework its business structure and appoint business presidents who will report directly to an executive committee. The move is an attempt to boost sales by cutting bureaucracy and responding more quickly to customer requests after worldwide demand for chlorine, plastics and electronic parts plunged in Q2.

    I worked for Dow for almost 29 years. It used to be that the stock, after a split, would recover to the pre-split price by 10 years. The last split was a 3-1. The stock is lower today that it was....think that split was 12 years ago. With such a poor stock performance (which is No. 1 with investors), there should be a shakeup at the TOP. I am a stockholder. Dow stock used to be a smart investment. Who expected this? One has to wonder if Dow is going in the correct direction with their product selection.

    Yes, but look at the where it's come from since K-Dow and Rohm & Haas. All-in-all not bad, given the economic crash and those two "dandies."
