13:03 EDTYUMYum! Brands technical notes ahead of results
The shares have markedly under-performed in the prior three months, trading down over 14%. A great deal of the share price loss came at the front of the interval during the tainted-meat scandal in China. After the initial drop, shares have been basing in a range of $70 at the low and $73 at the high. The base at $70 may be particularly important. If the news is worse than already low expectations, that support at the $70 area could be lost. Next support below would be at $68.20 and then at $66.16. An extreme price reaction could see the 52-week low at $64.08 tested as well or perhaps broken. Equally, an upside surprise could see the top of the range tested at $73. Given low expectations, a bit of stronger news could push the stock through that resistance level. Next upside would be at $73.84, $75.44, and then at $76.33 on an increasing band of positive surprises.

DuPont's Flurochemicals global business director Kathryn McCord said, "DuPont continues to see rapid transition to HFO-1234yf refrigerant for automotive air conditioning, and we expect to see the refrigerant in 3 million cars by the end of 2014, with that number growing to 7 million by the end of 2015. All but one of the world's leading automakers are adopting HFO-1234yf... "DuPont is prepared to supply HFO-1234yf, which it sells as DuPont™ Opteon® YF refrigerant, to both automakers and the service industry in the United States and Europe. DuPont was the first company to establish capacity of HFO-1234yf, with sites in China and Japan, and capacity expansions we announced last October are on track. We have sufficient supply to meet our customers' projected demand, and are prepared to make additional investments when long-term demand justifies it."
