3D Systems Corporation DDD Stock News

3D Systems Corporation (NYSE: DDD)

3D Systems is off to what seems to be an incredible day in the market today. When the opening bell rang, the stock was trading close to the breakeven point. However, since then, the stock has been screaming upward. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from DDD, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What We’re Seeing From DDD

As mentioned above, 3D Systems is having an incredible day in the market thus far today. The stock started the day off very close to the breakeven point. However, it went on a mad dash toward the top as soon as the bell rang. From there, we’ve seen a continuation of strong upward movement. At the moment (9:48), DDD is trading at $16.93 per share after a gain of $0.83 per share (5.16%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Spiking Upward

In the case of DDD, our partners at Tradespoon were the first to alert us to the upward movement. As soon as they did, the CNA Finance team started digging to see exactly what was causing the movement. In this case, it didn’t take long to dig up the reason for the spike. While we were unable to find any fundamental news with regard to the company, the gains seem to be the result of a rumor.


At the moment, there’s a big rumor surrounding 3D Systems in the social media realm. That rumor is that the company is likely to be taken over soon. While this is definitely exciting investors given the gains we’ve seen so far today, it’s important to remember that this is nothing more than an unconfirmed rumor that could be debunked at any moment!

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on DDD. In particular, we’re interested in learning if there is any validity to the rumor that the company is going to be acquired. Of course if there is, this could prove to be massive news for shareholders. We’ll keep an eye on the news and bring it to you as it breaks!

QUALCOMM, Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM)

QUALCOMM wasn’t off to the best of days in the market today. In fact, when the market opened, the stock found itself in the red. Through the morning, the stock worked to recover, finding its way to the green. However, it soon fell again, ultimately spending most of the day below the breakeven point.

As usual, as soon as the CNA Finance team received the notification from Tradespoon that QCOM was taking a dive, we started digging to see why the fall was happening. In this case, it didn’t take long to dig up the story. It seems to be the result of a recent Bloomberg report.


According to the Bloomberg report, QUALCOMM is facing a United States antitrust case. The case is allegedly surrounding licensing, however, there hasn’t been much data released with regard to the case.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on QCOM. In particular, we’re interested in learning more about the antitrust case against the company. Given that the news came from Bloomberg, we can rest assured that this isn’t likely a rumor. However, details would be great! We’ll be following the story and bringing it to you as it breaks!

Netflix NFLX Stock News

Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX)

Netflix is having an overwhelmingly strong start to the trading session today. When the opening bell rang, the stock was in the green. However, it quickly made a run for the red. Nonetheless, minutes ago, a story broke that led to a big spike in value. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to NFLX ahead.





What We’re Seeing From NFLX

As mentioned above, Netflix is having a relatively strong start to the trading session today. After starting the day off in the green, the stock quickly started moving toward and into the red. However, minutes ago, things changed in a big way as the stock started to spike. At the moment (9:55), NFLX is trading at $131.09 per share after a gain of $0.14 per share (0.11%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Spiking

As soon as they did, the CNA Finance team started working to see what we could dig up as the cause for the gains. In this case, it didn’t take long to uncover the story. It seems as though the gains are the result of acquisition hopes.


Through our search, we quickly found ourselves reading a Dealreporter report. According to the outlet, Facebook may be making a move on Netflix relatively soon. Now, there has been no confirmation from either side, but a FB acquisition of NFLX wouldn’t be surprising. Nonetheless, it’s important to keep in mind that at the moment, this is nothing more than a rumor.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on NFLX. In particular, we’ll be watching to see if there is any validity to the rumor.

Twitter TWTR Stock News

Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR)

Twitter was off to a relatively normal day in the market today. The stock was in the green at the bell. From there, it saw its ups, it saw its downs, but nothing in the movement was exciting. That is, until minutes ago when a report that will most likely prove to be false hit. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What We’re Seeing From TWTR

As mentioned above, Twitter was off to a relatively normal day in the market today. When the opening bell rang, the stock was slightly in the green. From there, we saw some upward movement and some downward movement, but nothing really caught anyone’s eye. That is, until minutes ago, when a report broke that led to the beginning of a spike. At the moment (1:14), TWTR is trading at $17.31 per share after a gain of $0.22 per share (1.26%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Spiking

As usual, our partners at Trade Ideas were the first to inform us of the gains on TWTR. When they did, the CNA Finance team started digging to see what was causing the movement. It didn’t take long to find the story in this case. It looks like the gains are being caused by a report on Intereconomia. In the report, the website alleges that Disney (DIS) has made a bid to acquire Twitter.


At the moment, there is no confirmation of the acquisition, and in reality, this report is more of a warning. My friends, I have been doing this for some time. I’ve seen tons of reports from Intereconomia. Historically, the company has reported on several acquisitions; many of them that actually happened. However, when they are the first to report an acquisition, we can expect it to be a rumor. Sorry guys, you’ve gotten it wrong time and time again. Look, I’m far from perfect, but it’s like these guys don’t even try! With Intereconomia being the first to report the possible TWTR acquisition, I have to say, don’t get your hopes up until we get confirmation.

What We’ll Be Watching Ahead

Moving forward, we’ll keep a close eye on TWTR and DIS. However, as with most rumors, this one is likely to be false. At the end of the day, Disney has already declined to offer the company anything and I doubt that’s changed. Nonetheless, we’ll watch the news closely and bring it to you as it breaks!

Twitter Inc TWTR Stock News

Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR)

Twitter is having an interesting day in the market. After starting in the green and spiking early on, the stock went on a slow, yet steady path toward the bottom, eventually breaking into the red. However, the stock started heading up about an hour ago; then a big spike came just minutes ago. We believe we know why. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to TWTR ahead.





What We’re Seeing From TWTR

As mentioned above, Twitter was off to a strong day in the first few minutes of the trading session. The stock started the day in the green and spiked toward the top. However, just before 10:00, the stock took a turn for the worse, starting on slow, yet steady declines and making its way into the red. Now, however, it’s back to the green. At the moment (1:16), TWTR is trading at $17.09 per share after a gain of $0.23 per share (1.36%) so far.

Why The Strange Movement?

Whether it’s looking to go up, or it’s looking to go down, TWTR can’t seem to decide. Nonetheless, as soon as our partners at Trade Ideas informed us of the movement, the CNA Finance team started digging to see what we could uncover. At the moment, there’s no fundamental news, and no rumors that have hit the social realm. However, we believe that we have found something interesting.


According to sources that wish to remain anonymous, Twitter is considering replacing Jack Dorsey. While we have not been able to verify this news, it could be huge for the company. After all, since his second appointment as CEO, we haven’t seen much by way of positive news surrounding TWTR.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on TWTR. In particular, we’re interested in finding out whether or not Dorsey will actually be stepping down. If so, who will replace him? After all, few qualified executives want to hop onto a sinking ship. Nonetheless, we’ll keep a close eye on the news and bring it to you as it breaks!

Update – Unfortunately, the rumor is not true. It was a ploy by a blogger to show that algorithmic trading was fundamentally flawed. Nonetheless, the rumor caused some movement.

NVIDIA Corporation (NASDAQ: NVDA)

NVIDIA Corporation looked like it was going to have a strong day in the market. When the opening bell rang, the stock was actually trading well into the green. However, shortly after the bell, we started to see drastic declines, bringing the stock into the red. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing in the market, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to NVDA ahead.





What We’re Seeing From NVDA

As mentioned above, NVIDIA looked like it was going to have a relatively strong day in the market today. Thanks to strong pre-market activity, the stock started the session well into the green. However, shortly after the opening bell rang, things quickly took a turn for the worst. The stock started diving, quickly making its way to the red. At the moment (9:40), NVDA is trading at $116.09 per share after a loss of $1.23 per share (1.05%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Falling

As always, as soon as we received a ping from one of our alert partners, the CNA Finance team started digging to see what was causing the movement. In the case of NVDA, it didn’t take long to uncover the story. It seems as though the declines can be blamed on cautious comments coming out of one of the most trusted analyst firms in the business.

Early this morning, Citron Research released a report with regard to NVIDIA. In their report, the analyst firm outlined 6 concerns that they feel investors are discounting too heavily. As a result, they set a price target at $90 per share. Below is a snap shot of the note put out by Citron.

NVDA Citron Research

What We’ll Be Watching Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on NVDA. In the short term, we’ll be taking a dive into the claims made by Citron to see how valid these concerns really are. However, considering who Citron is, we would imagine that these are indeed real issues. Nonetheless, we’ll be watching the news closely and bringing it to you as it breaks!
