Over on CAPS, fully 89 of the 149 All-Star members who have rated Kodak -- some 60% -- believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bears include srk85 and Option1307, both of whom are ranked in the top 15% of our community.

Three weeks ago, srk85 predicted that the long-term picture would turn out ugly for shareholders: "Down a lot but still with a long way to go. No significant earnings on the horizon for years."

In a pitch from two weeks later, Option1307 expands on that bearish reasoning:

When was the last time you had camera film developed? Ya, that's what I thought. And for those < 20 yrs. old, you have likely never experienced that old school way of technology.

We live in a digital world and things are only rapidly accelerating farther down that past. Traditional photogrpahy is dead.

Yes Kodak makes some good products, and they have a large exposure to digital technology as well, but that doesn't matter currently.
