On the Road to the Kodak Meeting
Which, in part, is why I'll be in New York City the next two days. Company executives are meeting with money managers and analysts to talk about fourth-quarter and year-end earnings and what's ahead for 2006. Earnings will be out early Monday morning; the meeting convenes at 1 p.m. in the Equitable Center, just steps from Times Square.
It's hard to say what the announcements will reveal with full clarity about Kodak's ultimate destiny. The company's finances have become incredibly complex, with lots of moving parts; it is possible to interpret the results in many different ways. And even if that weren't the case, Kodak is playing in markets that are fiercely competitive and changing with the speed of light.
It's raining both here and in New York as I write this. Check back with a more thorough forecast of the company's financial future -- I'll be updating as I can.
