How about anything with sugar? i.e. colas, candies.
How about anything with paper? i.e. save the forrest
How about anything not made in the USA? i.e. save USA jobs by only buying American
How about other sinfully and morally wrongs stuff too?
The goal is to be moral and avoid those "evil profits"
Go for all moral stuff!
Funny how folks get real exited when stores have sales; BUT say its "UGLY" when stocks are "on sale". You really want good quality stocks, houses and tools to "go on sale" to buy for less.
The masses worshiped the old Kodaks top leaders. Any mention that they should be fired for cause with zero benefits got one attacked on this board; even 2 to 3 years ago. The lay masses buy into hokum and thus road the old stock to zero believing that their sacred Kodak leaders were guru's. Most folks buy based on faith and believed their old a Kodak leaders manure was great food. They ate it up with gusto; eating the rotten turds of Kodak wisdom that the change was around the way. The entire old Kodak's annual reports were filled with these rotten turds or preachings. Any a sane person could read an Kodak report in year 2XXX and see in year 2XXX +1 that the stock was lower and the profits were declining. The average old Kodak shareholder had no raw balls to get mad and #$%$ that the company was top heavy with folks who milked the company. They really did not care if their leader was being flow to Spain in private jets while the dividend was cut to zero. They are not in jail because it all was legal. The stupid shareholders rode the stock down from 25 bucks to 20 cents as their scared god was in charge. They were a cult who worshiped Kodak like some battleship with Mr Potatohead at the helm.
The old Kodak had more debts versus assets. Would your moral clock be happier if there was no new Kodak company and all was just dissolved? i.e. less jobs in Rochester and all of Kodak halted. ? i.e. end all movie film for theaters; old shareholders get zero; bondholders get a few dimes per dollar; ? is it ETHICAL to pay the old shareholders before the Bondholders? i.e. go across the basics of bonds are paid first? closing all doors and firing all and stopping all production could be viewed as un ethical to the movie industry who have contracts to buy film. Kodak owned more than it is worth thus there was no money to pay the old shareholders.
I think folks see the same faces at the new company and thus think that the old company's shareholders were wronged. But that is not how bankruptcy works; the shareholders are last in line thus got zilch.
Most folks are followers. They will whine and complain at the small stuff like cold fries at McDonalds but are weak to ask for a CEO's head i.e. fire him for cause. Perez was flown to Spain on private jets while the Dividend was cut and gone at the old Kodak. The stock was many dollars a share then. 100,000 bucks invested in Kodak when Perez was hired would buy you a weed eater last summer; then nothing by September. On this board even mentioning that the CEO should be replaced got one attacked; and that was 2 years ago. The masses would be appalled to have a Mr Greenjeans in overalls who kicked butt at Kodak 5 years ago. They want some groomed CEO that says all the right words and not one is in deep dung. The USA rewards CEO's like kings and the lay stockholders are weak and dumb to not hang these failures out to dry. i.e. fired them for cause with ZERO benefits. The CEO's are smart and crafty; the sign on with super plans that no matter what they make out. The fault is with the old shareholders. They had no balls and were dolts to not see Kodak was just milked as it crashed and the old guard upper crust were rewarded. Remember the masses voted for Obama and he crowned Perez and as a role model. i.e. job creator. The lay masses love to follow bad plans and reward failure.
Teflon man. I mentioned on this board that he should be fired form cause back when the stock was 2.5 bucks a share. He is worshiped by many and many posters on this board even said he will be gone soon. Most folks are whusses. If the fry guy at McDonalds goofs up to many times he gets fired for cause. If a coach looses too much he gets fired. In corporate America many folks are like kings and queens in royality. It really doesn't matter what they do they still have a job. The nation has become a nation of whusses. The bulk of Kodak upper management should have been fired for cause 5 years ago. Instead companies go bankrupt and the same old chaps often have jobs. What; somebody on this board will jump in and defend the old guard or say it doesn't matter since Kodak is now a new company.
Good to see how Perez is still connected to Kodak. He skillfully steered Kodak over the last decade. His followers are many. He has a job for life if his followers will press the matter! :-)
“This is an important moment for the new Kodak,” Antonio M. Perez, Kodak CEO, said in a statement Tuesday afternoon. “We are pleased to once again be listed on the NYSE. The change in our symbol reflects that we are a new company that is focused on business-to-business products and services, well-capitalized and firmly committed to delivering value to our shareholders and innovation to our customers.”
The Gods at Yahoo are stupid. They dropped key features in yahoo mail to make it more like gmail; and REMOVED features that ONLY YAHOO HAD. Thus simple stuff like printing an email is WHY many users used yahoo MAIL; that have both yahoo and gmail accounts. They also removed tabs and a way to sort emails by client. The #$%$ IGNORED why folks used yahoo for mail instead of just gmail . Thus these stupid clueless assuming stupid YAHOO software and high mucky mucks should be BASHED; instead of folks point out the KEY reasons by the yahoo upgrade is a DOWNGRADE. The blond goddess at Yahoo just ruined yahoo mail. is she MAN enough to add back features folks use; or is it just my way or the highway; it to hell with clients?
Yea I know. I own 200 of the new shares EKOD that I bought about 25. The running joke on this old forum is that EKDKQ still trades.
When i log on I see either 0.03 or on other days 0.0299. Good to see a stock that is not trading still having some movement. :) Weirder still is when first go to Yahoo business and see my stocks I track it shows EKDKQ often as 0.05; then its 0.03 0r 0.0299 when on this EKDKQ page ! :)
