    135-36, $2.19.
    120, $1.75

    From the US Consumer Price Index's inflation calculator:

    $2.19 in 1982= $5.28 in 2013

    $1.75 in 1982= $4.22 in 2013
    Very curious - so, we really have nothing to complain about!

    Ahhh, Fred, my stock was bought high so here I am at about 30 cents / share.

    Can anyone live with a loss like that?

    Ron,

    Your 'old' Kodak stock (if you have any left) is about to be worth $0 per share - not even 30 cents

    From B&H's website today:

    TX 135-36, $4.29 ----equal to $1.78 in 1982.

    TX 120, .....$4.95 ----equal to $2.06 in 1982.

    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.

    Prof_Pixel is right. When the company emerges from bankruptcy the old shares will be cancelled and therefore be worthless, i.e. $0 per share. Better dump it now while you can get a few cents per share, or alternatively, request share certificates and save them as souvenirs to hang on the wall.

    Been there done that. Take the thirty cents.

    I had a $20 stock go bk. sold it at fifty cents. Then I bought a Ton at twenty-six cents and sold it for fifty cents again. Two days later it was zero.

    Don't remember if it was Worldcom or UAL. We can still talk on the phone and we can still fly in planes.

    And God willing we will still buy film.

    Too bad you hadn't adopted my philosophy. I'd never buy any stock in a company that would hire me.

    I know I'm late to the thread, this is great news. Properly run, the new buyers of Kodak's film and document business will have a decent income generator.
