Company Description

Why We Like It:
DDD is part of the new 3-D printing industry. The stock is trading at all-time highs as many investors believe this will be a big growth industry for years to come. DDD has garnered a number of bullish analyst upgrades. Yet there are also bears on this stock and DDD could see a short squeeze. The most recent data listed short interest at 33% of the 94.5 million share float.

Today's high was $56.23. We are suggesting a trigger to buy calls at $56.35. If triggered our short-term target is $59.75. Our longer-term target is $64.00. The Point & Figure chart for DDD is bullish with a $71 target.

You'll notice that I am listing both the November calls and the 2014 January calls.
