    If bought at 10.00 after earnings, we are in the first target zone here up to 13.70 for some profit taking.

    DDD very interesting chart-golden cross well above the current price-rare!! And, the phase went from bearish to distribution. Stock has gone from the post earnings low of 9 to 10.80 (current price) in just 3 days. That's an 18% move.

    This, by no means, is a slight or insult against Michele, but "Mish" in the Ukrainian language means "Mouse". I would say "Mighty Mouse" given the fervor and conviction shown by Ms. Schneider. I liked her presentation. Been watching this company since near inception. I like the idea of the Company's product, I'm not quite sure that the company provides a "need'. I agree that 3D printing will revolutionize manufacturing, but I just have this niggling doubt about the quality of what is produced by the printer...i.e. what if the recent airline crash happened because the turbine blades were 3D printed??? A huge "what if"...

      The world is fill of "what if's." I like to think when not if. Amazon announced they are looking at 3D imaging for ordering clothes online to ensure the right sizing. You never know what giant is shopping for a takeover of a company already in the 3D space-thanks for your comments-timing is everything but I am happy to see it trading over 10.00 thus far today May 7th.

    DDD rallied nearly 10% on Friday the 4th (2 days after earnings dust settles). Over 10.00 if confirms, good place for starter position with under 8 as risk--thru 11.70-12.00 an add. High short float mentioned during video.
    Naysayers showed up 3 years ago when I talked about first solar-it has nearly quadrupled in price since then-never underestimate a megatrend-especially one in infancy.

    Concise and actionable, seem like a reasonable idea if due diligence confirms company's potential viablilty.

    Come on guys you can do better than these last two videos. Rational well thought in depth analysis is what had made RV a great product, but the quality has gone down with the price.
    In trying to become the biggest you are becoming the same as the people you were trying to replace.

      Your commentary isn't a little hard?? The service calls Trade idea was supposed to cost $1k +, end up free + a sub reduction and you complain... RV offer us professionals grade interview plus free trade idea for a price of what,, a good supper at the restaurant.... RV is a bargain... I suggest that if you don't like the trade idea, just don't listen to it.

      Harsh ? perhaps by your standards, by mine no.
      I have been a long term subscriber to RV Television, Think Tank & Macro Insiders, I do not want the quality of the product to go down at all, in fact I want the quality to go even higher, I want deep thoughtful analysis that educates. Which was the original concept for RV.
      If you are willing to pay $1000+ for Trade Ideas be my guest, follow their recomendations and let me know how you get along.
      I have two objections to the two previous videos, one, they are detrimental to the audience they are targeting, second is that they are using RV as a promotional platform.
      If I want to complain I will complain, I do not need you to tell me whether I should listen to something or not. If I need your sophisticated advice I will ask you for it

      Damian, you don’t like the trade ideas service generally or ideas specifically, fine, but as stated it’s additive and not costing you anything. Your comments are harsh and your manners appalling.

    Stock has had virtually no growth in sales for the last 4 years, losing money, shrinking margins, share price trending down. No evidence to support buying this stock here - a forecast based on what...feelings? RV, you need to do much better than this. Are we so desperate for quantity of trades that quality is ignored? Is this all that can be afforded now with the new reduced subscr. price?

    Hey I appreciate the idea and effort. Please would you guys mind to generate comprehensive ideas ie including fundamental analysis?
    Orienting/stating investment ideas on technicals only can be very costly and It could give retail traders the wrong idea of a professional investment process. Thank you guys

    Since July 2017 it looks like a stock to short going into earnings or buy a week to 10 days after

    ddd is crashing today- down 12%. Earnings is disappointing. Probably should wait as industrials are weakening. Heading closer to its 52 week lows.

    i was in this stock when it was $9x, and get burn after the crash. i still can remember the pitch of this industry revolution. But it yet to happen, that time i was fresh and new to investment, thinking if only i was in a better entry price and hold it for long term. below $10 is good enough for me to start again.

    Just like the last trade idea, it would be nice to publish these before the relevant catalyst highlighted in the video (e.g. earnings release). The FIT and DDD videos discussed earnings releases, but the videos were released after the fact.

      As she said "it would be prudent to wait" for earnings to come out. Good call as it's down ~ 7% right now (Thursday ~11am) as it had a loss on the earnings call!

      Be glad as they disappointed which shouldn't have been a surprise. Jumping in right before earnings can be painful, even when the earnings report agrees with your thesis. Market's initial reaction to these reports is often counter to what the report seems to indicate.

    It's very hard to determine the right investments in the 3d space at the moment. Consumer 3d printing is and will probably stay a niche market for the foreseeable future. It's not only about the cost of 3d printing but also ease of use. Treatment of the 3d printed objects after (UV hardening, Sanding and applying the ground coat) is a lot of work and mostly for hobbyists. Also, it's only really usable for some types of objects, mainly ornamental. It's on the industrial side that things are interesting. But like Virtual Reality still very hard to invest in this space in my opinion. There will be a time, but maybe not yet.
