    Kodak Sells Gelatin Business

    I just saw this over on RFF. I imagine this can't be good:

    Sadly, neither can this (from the article):

    "...Kodak shares jumped 7 cents, or 11.8 percent, to 70 cents. The stock is down 88.3 percent in 2011."

    I doubt that this one ingredient would have much impact on film production. I imagine the worst thing that could happen is an increase in price of film if they have to get gelatine from another manufacturer.

    Geez, if their market cap gets any lower, we could take up a collection and buy them out.

    That's actually not a horrible idea.
