06:06 EDTDDTrian Partners says DuPont's structure 'destroying shareholder value'
Trian Fund Management, L.P., whose investment funds beneficially own approximately $1.6B of the outstanding shares of DuPont, said it has sent a letter to the bomard analyzing how DuPontís conglomerate structure is destroying shareholder value. The letter and accompanying White Paper Summary also detail initiatives DuPont should take that Trian believes could significantly improve DuPontís financial performance and double the value of its common stock within three years. Trian plans to meet with DuPont shareholders to present its analysis and strongly recommends that the DuPont Board meet shareholders without management present to hear their views. In the letter, Trian said, "While we applaud the announced spin-off of Performance Chemicals, the Fresh Start initiative and the $5 billion share buyback authorization, we believe strongly that, by themselves, these moves are not enough to optimize shareholder value. We would have preferred to continue working privately with management and the Board, but it is now clear that the Board is not willing to hold management accountable for continuing underperformance and repeated failures to deliver promised revenue and earnings targets. Therefore, we can no longer be silent as DuPont continues to struggle to execute what we are convinced is a flawed business plan, especially as we have a solution that we believe could double the value of DuPontís shares over the next three years."

20:02 EDTBPConocoPhillips auctioning 24% stake in the Clair oilfield, FT reports
ConocoPhillips (COP) has hired banks to sell its 24% stake in UK's largest oilfield, The Financial Times reports, citing people familiar with the matter. The 24% stake could be valued between $2B-$3B, the people added. The Clair oilfield sits in Scottish territorial waters, and Conoco's interest in exiting the project is a sign of the challenges facing the North Sea oil industry, The Financial Times added. BP (BP) operates the Clair oilfield and owns a 28.6% stake, Royal Dutch Shell (RDS.A) controls a 28.6% stake, and Chevron (CVX) controls a 19% stake. Reference Link

12:03 EDTDDUSDA raises U.S. corn yield forecast to record
In its monthly World Agricultural Supply and Demand Estimates, or WASDE, report, the U.S. Department of Agriculture's corn yield forecast is raised 4.3 bushels per acre to a record 171.7 bushels. Corn production for 2014/15 is forecast 363 million bushels higher at a record 14,395 million bushels. Total 2014/15 corn usage is projected at 13,605 million bushels, up 170 million from last month. Although a record, usage is expected up just 5 million bushels from 2013/14 as export prospects remain constrained by large foreign carryin stocks, the USDA wrote. Publicly traded companies in the agriculture space include Agrium (AGU), Andersons (ANDE), Archer Daniels (ADM), Bunge (BG), CF Industries (CF), Compass Minerals (CMP), DuPont (DD), Intrepid Potash (IPI), Monsanto (MON), Mosaic (MOS), Potash (POT) and Syngenta (SYT).

07:47 EDTBPBP weakness overdone, says Oppenheimer
After BP (BP) was found 67% culpable and grossly negligent for the Gulf oil spill, Oppenheimer thinks the case could drag on for years, while the company may have to pay less than the maximum possible Clean Water Act fine of $17.6B. Additionally, the firm says that the company could make the payment over an extended period. Oppenheimer reduced its price target on the name to $55 from $60 but keeps an Outperform rating on the shares.
