June 26 Chemicals maker DuPont cut its
operating profit forecast for the second quarter and full year,
mainly due to a worse-than-expected performance at its
agriculture and performance chemicals units.
The company's shares fell about 4 percent in extended trade.
DuPont lowered its full-year operating profit forecast to $4
per share from $4.10 per share, and said it expected
second-quarter operating profit to be moderately below the $1.28
per share it reported last year.
DuPont shares closed at $67.70 on the New York Stock
Exchange on Thursday.
