The slide in DuPont (DD -9%) shares wipes away all their 2012 gains following the weak Q3 earnings report. But DD says it remains on track to achieve its full-year 2012 productivity targets for both fixed costs and working capital, and it is "taking the necessary steps" to move long-term into higher growth, higher margin businesses such as agriculture, nutrition and biotech. Also: DOW -3.1%, MON -1.8%.
