Kodak is still strong as it prepares for recovery

read at Democrat and Chronicle
"About two-thirds of our $9.4 billion in 2008 revenue came from a stable of cash-generating annuity businesses. Another $1 billion in revenue came from core investments in businesses with large, sustainable growth potential in very large markets. The remaining $2 billion in revenue reflects businesses that we will transform to improve margins and maximize cash, alone or with partners."
That sounds pretty good.
"Commercial printers are excited by our new Stream continuous inkjet technology, which offers the long-awaited promise of offset-class quality with the full benefits of variable-data digital output. Our accelerated introduction of this technology is on track, with the Stream printhead coming to market late this year and the Stream printing press on the market in early 2010."
Given that Screen already has the TrueJet 520 printing in the market, will this be fast enough? We'll have to wait and see. If it were me, I would leverage their domination of the offset space to set up a distribute and print network. But that's their problem. Not ours.
