Fujifilm is a Japanese company and has been dominant in photography sector for decades. Most of Kodak patent and good assets were sold to Fujifilm and various tech companies in the US. what is left with this mighty company is just a remnant of the past. Giving a huge loan to a company that has been under-performed for decades with poor management team is just not a wise decision. Those robinhood traders also are bizarre by keep investing in failed or bankrupt companies. It is more like a gambling than investing. Guess not having good access to all those casinos and sport betting is so detrimental that they need to find other ways to gamble.

For some reason I thought Kodak was a Japanese firm, its been so out of the picture for so long.
The decision by the US government to select Kodak is a really interesting one. Fuji would have been a more logical chose as have been in the Pharma and chemical business longer.

There were prob some behind the scene negotiations between Japan and US to throw Kodak a bone.

Maybe its like SEGA. SEGA started out as an American company long long ago, made all these pinball machines and such. To make a long story short, the American side of it died out, while the Japanese subsidiary survived independently to become the SEGA we know today.

Why did they choose a faded relic company from more that a century ago with no pharmaceutical experience to spear head US independency in medical supplies? Surely there must be some experienced medical related companies such Johnson and Johnson to choose from.

It is a $350 millions company that gains 600% in a matter of days. I am sure a few of Trump's friends are really happy.
