    EK stock price and the Dow Index showing Kodak CEO's

    A while ago I made a graph of the Dow and EK stock values from Jan 1990 to Jan 2010 showing the various CEO's.

    Note that the Dow index and the EK stock prices are normalized to their values on 1 Jan 1990.

    You can see how things started falling apart under Fisher.

    Great Point, maybe the best of this thread.

    Now that also coincides with Fuji making huge inroads into the US market boosted by their sponsoring the Atlanta Olympics in 1996, no longer was Kodak dominant.in their home market but rapidly losing market share. They'd lost dominance in Europe in the 1980's.

    I wish Kodak would have entered the Photovoltaic Solar Cell business instead of junky ink jet printers.

    I still have 6 boxes of Kodak Christmas Lights in my garage.

    Fred;

    Fisher chose Carp and Carp chose Perez. Like begets like.

    Also it is interesting to remember how unimaginative Fisher was when it came to cell phones in spite of him being from Motorola. Maybe he wanted to avoid impinging on Motorola's turf?

    Interestingly enough, both Fuji and Konica closed their US plants and no longer manufactured products here. In fact, the entire Fuji plant was up for auction having been build but really never used. They seemed to have some sense of what was coming. Our EK management apparently did not.

    Carp are not averse to bottom feeding.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Yes, Perez was hired to improve the health of the company, not to wind it down. He is an utter failure. Yet he is still there. That's just SO encouraging.

    Sometime around 1980 when I was working in the Research Labs setting up a battery lab, the group I worked with also contained people working on coatable solar cells; I've forgotten what happened to them. Maybe PE remembers.
