    From Bloomberg today

    In an article about Kodak:

    "...according to Mark Kaufman, an analyst at Rafferty Capital Markets Inc. in New York...

    “Their old film business, which everyone abhors and denigrates, has been generating cash over the years consistently,” Kaufman said in an interview. “The other big cash generator has been their licensing fees from their patent portfolio.”"

    I think it's still safe to buy Tri-X just twenty rolls at a time.

    I wonder if they consistently hold their collective noses every time a new delivery of that abhorrently denigrated cash arrives?

    They probably spit on the film as it's being manufactured, swearing at it and cursing its name!

    I may have done that, but only when it's come out of the dev tank.

    You're probably using 35mm. That's much too small. Go at least 4x5; it's very smoooooth!

    Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”

    I bought some shares, and I will get some more on Friday if the price holds at this level. A major fund dropping a company that is showing a profit is a long term small investors dream.

    I would have bought more film to go with the stock, but I just got film so I just bought a small piece of the company.

    Maybe...though a low share price doesn't always equate to a bargain, and major funds don't usually drop an investment without a reason. They usually have access to investment research and analysis way beyond that available to the individual small investor.
