Next Stop Bankruptcy for This Iconic Company

The following video is part of our "Motley Fool Conversations" series, in which, Brendan Byrnes, Industrials editor and analyst, and Austin Smith, consumer-goods editor and analyst discuss, topics around the investing world.

In today's edition, Brendan and Austin talk about a company on the slow road to bankruptcy: Eastman Kodak. As Kodak struggles to sell its patents and burns through cash quickly, it's questionable whether it'll survive the year without a massive patent sale. Furthermore, its choice to enter the printer market with veteran Hewlett-Packard is not looking promising.

    Its always much easier to follow what everyone says when forming an opinion. If you look at the facts about eastman kodak you will see a big time comeback coming. they will sell their patenst of 1100 for apx 3 bill and they will have enough money for 2 years. they have invested money in inventory and will reep the rewards of that for the 4th quarter. becasue of GAAP generally accepted accounting principles they could not recognized revnue from sales in the 3rd Q. they will be recognized in 4q. The world will run up that stock on the first good thing that happens. It will go to about $4 per share when eanings for 4th Quarter come out just like in 2009 it tripled. They are getting rid of board members they dont need and businesses they dont need for their future. You will be calling me a genius on the 23rd of January.
