Signs of life at Kodak...

For some time I have been keeping the pulse of various companies that are of interest here. I do this primarily for my own capitalist gain but also to try to divine the direction of the film-related industries.

Here is a quick stock bulletin: there are some encouraging signs of rapid recovery at Eastman Kodak (EK). I am not quite sure what's up but the company has apparently recaptured the attention of the private investor... see the attached stock data.

Incidentally, Eastman Chem Co. (EMN) is also doing well, aproaching the highs right before the '08 crash. Apparently, they are thinking of selling of the PET business, which could be of importance for film users.

Fuji's stock (FUJIY) continues to do well; it is a very diverse company with a lot of inertia in basic research, so they weathered the storm better than most.

Harman (HAR) is also doing well:

In other news... Tom Petters, the ponzi 'mini-Madoff' who led Polaroid down the tubes was given a 50 year sentence. I can't figure out who owns what now. They apparently now have Lady Gaga as their creative director. Hummm....

    I heard the the original people who owned polariod were going to buy it back. This in mind they also had plans for the instant film market too.
