Eastman Kodak Co. has chosen an important new partner to help develop pioneering technology for display screens in consumer electronics.

And today, Eastman Kodak Co. stock surged 6.7 percent following news that a key investor has increased its stake in the company.

Legg Mason Value Trust, run by legendary fund manager Bill Miller, now owns 23 million shares of the company, up from 21.5 million at the end of the third quarter. That amounts to about 8 percent of Kodaks outstanding shares.
