Some of the SHORTs are likely the Hedgies merely protecting a long position. There are however, others who have gotten fat, dumb, and lazy by taking for granted SD won't break the choke hold. With COOPs talk as well as a more positive outlook for SD....smart SHORTs will start to ween themselves off of the SD teet!
I expect to see SD hit a higher trading range in the 7's with upward pressure as SD begins to make progess in the MIDCON and I still think SD is on more than a few radars with consolidation/gathering of assets in mind for both the MIDCON and the GULF assets once the news justifies it.
If this news comes to fruition, then the SD price goes up easily beyond the 10 buck firgure being thrown at the walls right now.
All IMHO ........
In the spirit of matching your misdirection & sarcasm, perhaps the 3D industry will begin "printing" dollars and bit coins.............anymore questions? LMAO!
Watching 3D expand its applications and capabilities is going to be fascinating.
One question!? What kind of energy demands does 3D currently pose on the growing process? Thanks, Boar
Reducing one's competition by buying his competition is an age old phenom, not unique to this sector at all.....3D is in its infancy....no one knows what direction this sector will take except to say this, its application will expand as will its capabilities........and in the end, I wouldn't be surprised to see ZERO stand alone 3D operators except possibly, a few consumer level sellers.
Especially given the mega-industrials like GE, BA, CAT, to name a very few who could wade into this sector, swallow it, and grow it internally toward their own end.
Thus the notion of a few small//totally consumer oriented operators.
Then again, DDD is striving to become that stand alone mega player in this sector and could GE itself by divisioning out to meet pro/manuf./and consumer needs with many overlaps/thus cost reducing structures.
We will see, this is going to be fascinating to watch! All IMHO of course!
i call bs....you are starting to sound like a SHORT sitting in the "HURT ROOM" or, a disgruntled former employee.
Perhaps you should review the evolution of nearly EVERY DISRUPTIVE technology that has come along with numerous players elbowing one another for space and success and franjly, ultimately, survival.
Just one quick example for you. At the dawn of the auto mobile, the US had at its peak, some 60-70 US auto makers....today, there are only 3 majors...with a 4th trying to emerge into the sunshine, Tesla. The consolidation of the auto industry was fast and brutal.
DDD is a momo...SHORTS are getting scalped as you read this...just like a few other flyers from 2013 that have habded SHORTS their heads as the momo got the gogo ! all IMHO of course...
FORGOT...and yes I own some....this is not in anyway a solicitation for anyone to buy or sell. CTIX is a very risky consideration and lets face it, phase 2 and phase 3 can be the dead end (and is more often than not) for such startups leading to a big fat, ZERO!
I apologize for bringing up another stock on this board but I sincerely think this is a company/technology that can add to CELG's medical kit ! Of course for all I know, CELG may already be hunting in these woods with competing technology/products!
Thanks CELG! .............and you might want to take a look at CTIX...it seems they might be a nice asset to add to the GELG product line! Seems some promising phase 2 data is in hand with phase 2b in Jan.'14.
Just an idea, food for thought......lets fill those CELG sails in 2014! All IMHO...and nothing more....
of ASSETS as DDD expands its vertical and horizontal grip in this newly WIDENING TECHNOLOGY that up until now has been focussed on the professional & manufacturing level yet appears to ba taking GRIP at the consumer level BECAUSE ITs COOL and economy of scale will make it cheaper and cheaper for the consumer going forward!
Lets face it, with rev and earnings growth pegged at the high 20's to low 30's next year.....well, that sure doesn't include recent strategic purchases and the benefit of any synergy created as well as.....reduction in cost of operations/ new profit centers that it appears DDD has gathered of late!
SHORTS look really good looking back through the rearview mirror but going forward.....um....well maybe a DEER in the HEADLIGHTS! All IMHO of course..........
Agree, very nice/smart move. PR can definately raise the level of awareness across the investment community. Something that SD has never paid attention too in the past. In fact, it seems SDs approach was to respond to whatever fire alarm analysts/critics decided to pull!
I think there are alot of investors who have no clue who SD is beyond the occasional negative talking head comment. It's all about SD's assets! The rest of SDs game plan validates the potential as each quarterly is reported and under new leadership, we see a potentially very profitable little company in the making!
All IMHO of course!
Go read " Proof That 3-D Printing Will Change Aviation Forever", very interesting take on how 3D printing is able to manufacture difficult designs that otherwise would be extremely difficult/costly to build and to do so using exclusively 3D printing!
Needless to say, any/all precision/difficult manufacturing processes can be streamlined using 3D applications and I expect even very large component items can/will also someday, be made using 3D depending upon of course, expected quantities etc.
I have to emphasize again, the fantastic article addressing the outfit made/3D printed and worn by a "Victoria Secret" Model and the impact this has on the average consumer. Simply put, this is COOL and the average consumer is going to want to get in on the act!
The possibilities 3D printing presents are endless IMO and of course.....all IMHO !
I can take a book, make my own hand written copy for my own use and break no laws. It is only when one tries to produce and sell, or claim it an original that there is a legal issue.
I can carve out an AR-15......paint a picture of an AR-15...and with raw materials I BUY, attempt to make an AR-15 by hand, by printer, by piece....and as of right now, break no laws. Again, for personal, or family use and I suppose labelled a self made item so as not to ever be passed off as the real deal.
I see your legal argument backfiring as well. If everyone starts making their own clothing/items like the Model from Victoria Secret jsut did, well then manufacturers who want to mimic or copy that item WILL face copyright laws because they would be manuf. for resale.
By the way, i see your point and I do think that like art, where an artist can essentially copy the painting of another but must incorprate (I believe) at least 3 substantial/easily identifiable differences ......that we will see this same approach adopted in the 3D printing industry at the consumer level on up !
Frankly however, corporate america has its hands full already with mass produced counterfeit items from around the world to bother with the little guy unless the little guy deliberately goes out to deceive others and benefit from such. All IMHO...of course.
...and while climatologists are kind of like political wind vanes these days, solar experts say we are at a century low in solar activity which lends credibility to some of those wiley climatologists who have been warning of a 20-50 year mini-ice age if you will!
Which if accurate to any degree (pun intended), means more cooling, more energy demand, and all with the backdrop of transportation demand for NG beginning to make its presence known! Not to mention the EXPORT of LNG starting in 2014 to other NG usage nations/areas.
just one really important point not mentioned/emphasized and that is .......3D is just now crossing the shelf of the mind level of awareness amongst the average consumer! In fact, the gidget/gadget guys and gals are really just now starting to enter// BUY 3D printers as is evidenced on Amazon as I type this piece!
Essentially, the HERDs are just now learning about 3D printing! Up till now, only folks somehow related to manufacturing seem to have been in the know so to speak.
But the real point here is that the HERDs bring many new 3D opportunities as well as a certain economy of scale on every aspect of 3D printing......apps, materials, printers...........and I expect this drives operators such as DDD to rapidly expand the consumer oriented segment of its business!
All of which bodes well for shareholders and the industry as a whole....IMHO..
Channel trading can work, its all about the timing I think....CAUTION however, while a MOMO can inch up days at a time, it can also drop a foot over night!
To be clear, there is no ECON or FINANCE course that teaches markets, that I am aware of. In fact having taken the SECs series 7 test before entering into the industry may years ago, I still wonder what that test had to do with buying/selling the markets!? LOL! I left the industry years ago as well!
However, both disciplines, ECON and FINANCE can teach a person how to measure value etc. IE, is this company a company i would lend money too? Of course considering sector, performance, outlook, economy, rates, leadership, competition, etc., etc., and of course the numbers!
MOMOs of late seem to be the DISRUPTIVE innovations/technologies and 3D printing is just now starting to grab the average consumers attention but is a long way away from reaching HERD like critical mass!
FYI....A Victoria Secret model just made her scant Xmas outfit using 3D technology......its online somewhere today! This kind of news will add momentum to the 3D sector and we are still a couple years away from hitting critical mass or to borrow Cramer's TSUNAMI description of mobile tech a few years back and apply it to 3D!
During this climb, improvements to the technology, expansions of applications, and simple awareness make 3D operators attractive.....for years to come IMHO! All the above of course, IMHO and nothing more!
Yes, centruy low solar activity kind of slaps Al MoronicGORE in the face with his global warming theory. The flatlander he is, it seems the EMOTIONAL LEFTWINGNUTs need to learn to understand that there is a HUGE difference between global warming as Gore and the rest of the panty twisted left put it out to the public and climate change.
I can not imagine a frozen Lake M !
The following comments are directed toward the emotional panty munchers on this board! Just for the love of having some fun!
For the record, the earths climate is CONSTANTLY changing and always has and always will. Especially as the earths axis shifts ever so slightly exposing some areas MORE while slightly reducing the exposure of others, to the sun.
I still can't get over the "PLASTIC OR PAPER" question asked at grocery stores in the late 1980's and well into the 1990's! The LEFTs attempt at trying to get consumers to STOP using paper and thus reduce the number of trees needed to supply such. Of course the plastic bags then CHOKED waste dumps across america for decades and gee, if memory serves me correctly, the half-life of a plastic bag is well beyond 100 years and perhaps as long as 500 years!
Way to GO! All U emotional LEFTWINGNUT THUGS telling everyone else how to live while pointing your finger at Religion and accusing it of the same! LMAO.......!!!!!!!! IDEOLOGY is IDEOLOGY to the leftist PATHOLOGICAL LOYALISTS who can read this post between tweeks! LMAO! SCALPED !!!!!
jerrytheeagle, long time no see! AND....that became TWs downfall or at least part of it in my view.
I don't know Bennett...but a sense of humor, coming across as a likeable guy...and the facts please and nothing but the facts coupled with here's what were doing and why, right now......can go a long way!
for the world of investors to meet you and learn more about SD and the direction you are taking!
Call CRAMER, he will get you on the air!
Subjects worth addressing would be the concept of stacking and how this applies to the MidCon....then of course the deep/deep reserves in the gulf......and finally the monetary belt tightening and how this adds up going forward.
Just an idea..............for what its worth..............and at 43.....this can become your "dance at will" regarding your own future in this industry! How do you spell OPPORTUNITY? SD turnaround and take no prisoners!
Much ado about nothing. She was responding to some leftwingnut groups push to declare Santa as no longer being white SO, she used the inverse to make a point! Of course it went right over the left and why not!/ There is no intellectual honesty on the left!LMAO! DOLTwingnuts!
Why is race an issue at all? because the LEFT makes RACE into its own trump card and this tactic is wearing out! I mean when one can point a finger at the racists words/actions of JOKEBAMA, OPRAH, Big Al "Twanna Brawley" Sharpton, or Jesse "I'm your Daddy TOO kid!" Jackson.........then some divisive leftwingnut group trying to STOKE THE FIRES of RACIAL DIVIDE by even bringing up WHAT COLOR Santa, Jesus...or whomever is next.........should be held accountable by the media.........of course this will never happen.
Leftwingnuts R a waste of oxygen! Merry Christmas LEFTWINGNUTs !!
