With Kodak's coat on a shoogly peg, it's understandable that people would want to make sure they have plenty of supplies of their favourite film. But if we all start putting in big orders for Kodak material now it's not going to be of any help to Kodak. Wouldn't it be better to wait until the new owner, whoever that is, takes over and then give their tenure a boost with all these orders. If we spend all our cash now, that's money that wont be going on the balance sheet of the successor firm. Even if no one comes forward to save Kodak's film division there is still plenty of stock out there so nothing would be lost by waiting for a little while.
I rotate stock on a quarterly basis as I use it, so no, I did not want to risk my career by waiting, so I covered my rear.
