06:22 EDTDDDuPont 'strongly recommends' holders to vote the WHITE proxy card
DuPont announced that it has filed definitive proxy materials with the SEC in connection with DuPont's Annual Meeting of Shareholders, which is scheduled to be held on May 13. DuPont shareholders of record as of the close of business on March 17 will be entitled to vote at the Annual Meeting. The DuPont board strongly recommends that shareholders vote on the WHITE proxy card "FOR" all 12 of DuPont's directors. In conjunction with the definitive proxy filing, DuPont is mailing a letter to shareholders detailing the significant progress and accomplishments achieved under the leadership of the DuPont board and management team. The letter also addresses Trian Fund Management's high risk agenda for DuPont to break itself up and add excessive debt to the company, which the DuPont board has carefully reviewed and determined would destroy value.

06:03 EDTMMM, GEU.S. Multi-Industry sector downgraded to Neutral at Barclays
Barclays downgraded the U.S. Multi-Industry space to Neutral from Overweight saying rising headwinds could limit share upside to mid-single-digit levels in 2015, with only slight improvement in 2016. The firm believes the credit cycle is peaking and views the U.S. Dollar strength along with lower oil prices as headwinds. Concurrent with sector rating change, Barclays downgraded Dover (DOV), Grainger (GWW), Xylem (XYL) and WESCO (WCC) to Equal Weight from Overweight. It also upgraded Tyco (TYC) to Overweight from Equal Weight and Lennox (LII) to Equal Weight from Underweight, calling both defensive names in the space. The firm is also "comfortable" owning General Electric (GE), Honeywell (HON), Sensata (ST) and HD Supply (HDS) at current levels. It prefers waiting for pullbacks to buy shares of 3M (MMM).
