Yes, it was ringing the bell that DDD is at the top of their game.
It is also a ringing a bell to indicate that the US government is making major investments in and providing major support to 3D technology.
That, in conjunction with the declared split on earnings date (a strategy only a company with a very strong report would dare), scared the vultures at Citron so much that they put a rush on the release their "report" before they had time to make it sound like something other than a elementary school-level hatchet job, so destroying even further what little credibility they still have.
Good luck in your attempt to influence investors more than the President. Hope it ends well.
