On Tuesday, DuPont (NYSE: DD) will release its latest quarterly results. The key to making smart investment decisions on stocks reporting earnings is to anticipate how they'll do before they announce results, leaving you fully prepared to respond quickly to whatever surprises inevitably arise. That way, you'll be less likely to have an uninformed, knee-jerk reaction that turns out to be exactly the wrong move.

As the chemical-industry representative in the Dow Jones Industrials (INDEX: ^DJI), DuPont makes a wide variety of products for businesses including agriculture, electronics, plastics, and pharmaceuticals. But given the overall global economic weakness, can the company keep producing the results investors want to see? Let's take an early look at what's been happening with DuPont over the past quarter and what we're likely to see in its quarterly report.
