It looks like they are already covering. we are at 10.80 now and I see DDD closing around 12.10 today. You are correct that shorts are stubborn. I suspect over half the shorts will hold on and not break until 20+.
Actually, I said I would buy if under 12 today... i stated this before market open. I also explained the stock will be at 15 quickly. This time next week you will not be able to buy under 15 EVER again. Go back and read "awful numbers" topic.
No, I posted before the open and did not have a position. With the good earnings report in relation to price, I thought it might not open below 12 today. I'm glad it did as I have a small position now.
