Kodak --- Welcome to the Swamp

#1

I'm now convinced Trump is going to just to do radical things on his way out.  Possible insider trading by those involved as well.


The Trump administration on Tuesday said it plans to give a $765 million loan to Eastman Kodak – which has struggled to survive after digital cameras displaced its once-ubiquitous camera film – so the company can manufacture ingredients used in pharmaceuticals.

Shares of Kodak rallied 318% to about $25.26 a share for its best day ever. The stock skyrocketed as much as 570% to $60.00 apiece at one point. Trading was halted 20 times during Wednesday’s trading due to volatility

It's not unless someone bought stock ahead of the announcement.

Pharma companies don't want to provide drugs or the potential vaccine for cheap, so Trump is going around the lobbyist and helping a company willing to make cheap drugs.

Left: Evil Trump doesnt care about health care
Trump side steps corrupt pharmaceutical companies in an attempt to lower drug prices
Left: Trump is evil. Arrest that man for insider trading.

I wasn't aware that Kodak actually still exists. I remember when it was a member of the Dow 30, and widely touted as a value stock. But they missed the move to digital cameras, and finally declared bankruptcy in 2012. Then the tiny little company that was left went into the manufacture of generic drugs. Their market cap a couple of weeks ago was $115 million.

Creating jobs, lowering drug costs and reestablishing drug manufacture on U.S. soil so that it can't be held hostage by China? Trump is clearly out of control.

Sounds like a good deal. If there was insider trading leading up to the announcement, prosecute it. Even if there was, though, it's still a good a deal.

This is normal for C-suite. They generally are limited in when they can buy and sell. While not great, it happens all the time. If you go after him, you have to go after every CEO.

There was definitely some insider trading going on, go look at the volume charts...74k shares traded on 7/24 and then over 1.6M shares the next trading day on 7/27. On 7/28 the price more than triples...someone or some group got tipped off.

Did you bother to read the post before yours?

It happens all the time... the people involved always know whats going to happen before it happens, and they can make a HUUUUGE profit... it's only illegal if they tell others about it.

Good for those who made money and even better for the country who won't have to rely on a foreign adversary for pharmaceuticals when the next pandemic hits.

Call me crazy, but I feel like the "physical" picture is prone to make a comeback. Kodak will rise again!

I did, I am well aware of the rules you reference and how often it happens and how often no one really cares.  But, the date in that posts/article says June 23rd, the referenced spike was after that (July 27).  It could've been him buying more shares, which would be in some disclosure somewhere that I'm not going to go digging for, or it could've been someone else who knew/got tipped off about it.

Either way, it must be nice to be those people!

It would depend on their corporate rules. Most of the stock trades are made well in advance and generally only available every 6 months, maybe 1 time a year.

The spike certainly could have been someone leaking it. Everyone wants to leak now, so who knows who knew what.

My mom still keeps physical scrapbooks. I laugh at her, but find myself looking at them every time I go to her house. I also have thousands of pictures broken up into folders by year that I haven't looked at since I took them. It's easy to get carried away with digital pics and you tend to keep more meaningful ones when they are in a physical book.

Having said that, I can see the Polaroid making a comeback. If for nothing more than nostalgic physical, in your hand pictures.
