It looks like a Covid-19 graph, that's how fast it is rising!Bruce Whitfield, The Money Show host
Kodak famously missed the worldwide shift to digital cameras, filing for bankruptcy in 2012 and relaunching the next year as materials and chemicals company.
Now it's making a comeback, again, with a loan from the US government to manufacture the ingredients for drugs to fight Covid-19.
