    What does this mean for the extensive report you provided yesterday stating they were way over valued. I sold my stock because of your report and watching DDD up over 14% is not sitting well with me.

     

    I would like some more explanation on this, please.

    That is exactly why you don't buy and sell solely based on other opinions. Do your own DD

    Did you not realize that guy was trying to get in at a cheaper price? That piece was FUD = Fear, Uncertainty, Doubt. Otherwise known as malarkey.

    Pretty clear that article was a dump and pump. Author had zero previous articles, a 45 page report on a stock isn't offered for free if it's legit, he had no history on the internet under that name, and he had several cheerleaders in the comments section who were posting for their first time ever. The research also read like a vast, incredible conspiracy theory. Occam's razor.

    Exactly. It was a ghost story meant to scare little kids into selling. "Now let's all gather round and let me tell you the story of the overpriced stock..."

    Most investors are long and act as cheerleaders for their chosen companies - some are short and profit by company's misfortunes and ... investor's fear, uncertainty and doubt. To be successful, an investor needs to be dispassionate and look at the facts - opinions are interesting but someone who clearly states that they are short a stock (as this guy did) have to be viewed as a questionable source - he's not completely wrong - DDD is a volatile stock, but it is a dynamic market segment I think will be electric - go DDD; go SSYS
