Over on CAPS, 1,325 of the 1,404 members who have rated DuPont -- or 94% -- believe the stock will outperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bulls include FinancialPeace and AlphaPuppy.

In February, FinancialPeace highlighted DuPont as a dynamic high-yielder: "Great chemical company that has been beaten down with everything else, nice dividend. I really like how they are focusing on their seed/ag business."

In a pitch from two days ago, AlphaPuppy analyzes DuPont's dividend in greater detail. Below is an excerpt, but be sure to check out the entire pitch here:

Normally, I would associate a 7% dividend yield with a high-probability that the market correctly understands the dim prospects for the dividend. However, these are far from normal times; and I am disposed to conclude that the market is correctly discounting little to no growth in earnings for a protracted period of time for Dupont-with virtually all of the prospective investment return to shareholders in the form of dividend income, which the company is in reasonable financial condition to maintain into the foreseeable future between cash flows and the strength of the company's balance sheet.
