NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- Bank of America (BAC) reported fourth-quarter earnings of 15 cents a share, meeting estimates. A year earlier, the bank posted a loss of 16 cents a share.

Shares were jumping 6.3% to $7.23 in premarket trading Thursday.


Eastman Kodak (EK), the 131-year-old photo film maker, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection.

Kodak, of Rochester, N.Y., said it obtained a $950 million, 18-month credit facility from Citigroup to keep it in business.

Shares were plummeting 29.7% to 39 cents.


BankUnited (BKU) is choosing to remain independent after receiving bids that didn't satisfy the bank's board.
