Why has it gone down?
Marketwatch recently wrote the following, “Some business executives have profited handsomely from the practice of earning “spring-loaded” stock options that take advantage of information not available to the public, but U.S. regulators on Monday announced plans to put a stop to it.
The Securities and Exchange Commission issued new guidance for companies on how to reflect the potential value of spring-loaded options when they disclose how much top executives actually earn.
Spring-loaded awards are a type of compensation in which a company grants stock options shortly before it announces market-moving information, such as an stronger-than-expected earnings release or disclosure of important transactions. The options have the potential to soar in value once the news is made public.”

Eastman Kodak Company NYSE: KODK Technical Analysis:
Can KODK stay above $4.80, and perhaps consolidate there after it’s little run and reversal? If so, that would be a decent signal. The other option is that it continues the slide it did at the end of today and trades in between $4.70 and $4.85 and consolidates there.
The other two options are: Bullish move or a continued bearish trend. A double confirmation of a reversal would be the stock sliding past $5.00 PPS. That would be a buy signal in my opinion.
Falling below $4.55 is a clear sign that KODK is continuing a bearish trend.
