Jake, I am like you and I am concerned too. In at an avg of 6.85 so I am in deep water.
(Not too many shares at this time.) Hope some one with good knowledge sheds some light on the why, of this being a good one to hold thru this.y
thanks for the question. i too have some of both. guess that i am venturing into a little speculation. the answer you received from RIOTFILMS sounded good. i hope one of these breaks out and keeps me in the black.
Hi, I just got into a little of EKSO, Was not aware of it until Friday, when I saw that 3D printings technology was involved here. Some connection to DDD. So based on knowing s little of DDD, i got a little of this too.
It is what I woud say, flying high right now, Any chance of it staying up??
Is the future business medical or military?
and Does anyone have any thoughts on the this connection with DDD.
Just trying to get knowledge.
Right, I realize that DDD is not in the movie business, but as I understand it, the studio is one that can use the 3D printings process to make costumes parts and props, and stuff that enhances movies. That will help sales if that process gets adapted into Hollywood.
And it could become a money maker on its own??
Think PIXOR ?? ..
****decision to acquire Digital PlaySpace****
This was todays news. Does anyone have any thoughts on this? I certainly have not heard of this company, but I bet that someone out there has some thoughts.
As I recall DDD did a thing like this just a few weeks ago, for a Hollywood animation / 3D studio.
So, this is how they are spending "our" money.
Everyone happy with this?
I think they they are pretty visionary, and this is good....
Look back on DDD, from Jan 25 to Mar 18 of last year. It took at pretty big hit (46 back to 29 split adjusted. Not sure if it was your 30% "Crash") but it seemed to have recovered. I would say lots of good companies take 30% or more hits and recover pretty well.
HD did that back in the 80's and did pretty well. They were innovative, Yes?
You might also look back to Feb-Mar 2013 back when DDD did it's last split, took a pretty good hit back then but look what it has done since
I know this correction is pretty nasty to us and is creating a lot of agony,
but at times like this I look at the chart and in this case I see that we are getting beat back all to the way to the mid December levels. What is that ? We are giving up only 4 or 5 weeks of gains?
How did we feel in mid Dec?
We were feeling good back then, I think,,, so lets not get too worked up.
The rest of the market is also taking a hit.
I own shares in all these too, mostly got in a while ago, so I am above water, mostly.. There is a lot of shaking out going on now, I plan to hang in for a while and see what happens. It seems to me that each of these companies is a little diffferent from the others, so you should not judge then all by the same light.
My thought was that one or more of these companies will be a big winner in the long term.
On the 6 in 60 sec a few minutes ago Kramer was asked about SSYS. His reply was real short, he seemed to say that he did not want to "get in front of the 3D things".
I took his remark to be good. Anyone else hear this? .
No No No
No cash is raised by the company with a stock split. All the things you mentioned, the lower price and more people maybe coming into the market and buying shares does nothing for the company's cash. The company does not get any new funds out of a split.
However If If If
If a company needs to raise new funds it might do a "secondary offering". That is the company itself selling more shares. Kinda like an IPO, except that the IPO has already occurred in the past. With a secondary offering, the currrent holders might be getting diluted some, but the company will be getting the new money.
We would be hoping that the company would be having a good use for the new money , and that it would bring greater value to the company.
How did you get an ides that a stock split raises cash? It does not? Does not even change value.
Any novice readers, a stock split does nothing except gives you more shares but now they are valued lower.
Like if you have 5 one dollar bills and get then changed into 10 half dollar coins. You will have twice as many things, but they are worth the same as before.
that would be a dollar bill split.
You are right in that your (a) brokerage account has this info,
But I keep several family members accounts that I offer help on, and I run my mothers account , so I need to be able to see a lot of things at one time easily in these shadow accounts.
Also, I have multiple accounts, Roth and Reg IRA's, Regular brokerage accounts, joint and single accounts, and even a mutual fund. These are scattered in several palaces.
Yahoo offers a good place to gather these things into a manageable group.
And Yes, I do have to keep updating the yahoo records when trades are done in the master accounts. But, I do not do a lot of trading.. I have to audit my records from time to time to balance them with the master records.
Generally speaking I can get to Yahoo a lot quicker than logging on to an TDameritrade account..
I can copy the Yahoo acct each day and paste it into a spread sheet to give me very nice daily record of the account values.
The one thing I miss is a good paper trail of the things we sell (the past history of things we once had).
I used to use Smart Money for this, but when they combined into the WSJ Market Watch, things did not work well and I had to change to Yahoo.
This is my 2 cents wortht, IMHO.
