On CAPS, 44% of the 557 members who have rated Kodak believe the stock will underperform the S&P 500 going forward. These bears include All-Stars mrindependent and tixareforkids, both of whom are ranked in the top 2% of our community.

Just two days ago, mrindependent reminded Fools that Kodak "perpetually loses money and analysts don't expect profitability this year or next." Our All-Star concludes: "The stock price has doubled in the last three months. Thus, I expect the next big move to be down."

In a pitch from the same day, tixareforkids doesn't quite get the bullish picture, either:

American icon without a plan or a discernible stake in the future of digital imaging. 2008 was their year to show the benefits of restructuring, we're coming up on 2 years now with no obvious turnaround. Their profit center -- consumer imaging -- is extremely competitive. Lotsa patents of sufficient value to consider a buyout? Stay tuned.
