Eastman Kodak Shares Popped: What You Need to Know

Although we don't believe in timing the market or panicking over market movements, we do like to keep an eye on big changes -- just in case they're material to our investing thesis.

What: Eastman Kodak (NYSE: EK  ) shares are up more than 16% following its Q3 earnings report.

So What: The company's Q3 loss was dramatically narrower than Wall Street analysts expected, coming in at $0.16 per share. The improvement was driven by a new intellectual-property licensing deal the company negotiated.

Now What: Kodak has struggled for years as its traditional film business rapidly declined against intense competition from digital photography. If the company can convert its vaults of intellectual property into dollars, it may still have hope for the future. Watch for more pops if and when the company announces more licensing deals.
