3D Systems Corporation DDD Stock News

3D Systems Corporation (NYSE: DDD)

3D Systems Corporation was off to what looked like it was going to be a rough day in the market early on. At the open of the trading session, the stock was already trading slightly red. From there, it fell further before finding some support, but remained red through the first 45 minutes or so. However, minutes ago, things changed as the stock started to soar, making it to the green quickly. 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 wasn’t looking like it was going to have the best of days in the market today. In fact, the morning was a bit rough. Since the opening bell, the stock has spent most of the day in the red. However, minutes ago, that all changed as the stock started screaming upward. Currently (10:16), DDD is trading at $16.97 per share after a gain of $0.05 per share (0.30%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Headed Up

As is almost always the case, our partners at Trade Ideas were the first to inform us of the gains on DDD. As soon as we got the alert, the CNA Finance team started to work to dig up the cause of the spike. While we were unable to find any fundamental news that was released by the company, we were able to dig up an interesting rumor in the social space.




At the moment, regardless of which social network you use, if you go to it and search for 3D Systems Corporation, chances are that you will see the rumor. The rumor suggests that the company will soon be taken over. According to the rumor, GE will be acquiring the company. However, keep in mind that, at this point, this is just a rumor that has not been confirmed by either side as of yet.

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 watching to see if there is any validity to the takeover rumors going around at the moment. Of course, if there is, the move could generate incredible value for investors. We’ll keep a close eye on the story and continue to bring it to you as it breaks!

In the update, pro forma unaudited results that included additional capital and debt repayments as of December 31st were offered. In a statement, Dennis Lacey, CEO at Real Goods Solar, had the following to offer:

Since our last business update, we successfully took advantage of capital market opportunities and raised additional financial capital… As planned, we are now Nasdaq compliant.

We will continue to expand our sales organization this year. Additionally, we are currently competing for solarize programs across the East Coast.

First Solar, Inc. FSLR Stock News

First Solar, Inc. (NASDAQ: FSLR)

First Solar didn’t look like it was going to have the best of days in the market today. In fact, at the opening bell, the stock was trading well into the red. However, shortly after the market opened, the stock started screaming for the top, quickly making it to the green and beyond. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from FSLR, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What We’re Seeing From FSLR

As mentioned above, First Solar wasn’t off to the best of starts in the trading session today. Unfortunately, when the session opened, the stock was already trading well into the red. Nonetheless, shortly after the opening bell, the stock started to make a run for the top. Currently (9:50), FSLR is trading at $35.22 per share after a gain of $0.49 per share (1.41%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Climbing

As is almost always the case, our partners at Trade Ideas were the first to inform us of the gains on FSLR. As soon as we received the alert, the CNA Finance team started working to see why the stock was running for the top. While we were unable to find any fundamental news that would lead to such gains, we did see a rumor in the social space that we believe to be the culprit.




At the moment, there’s an interesting rumor surrounding First Solar in the social space. That rumor is that the company will soon be acquired. The rumor suggests that Berkshire has made a bid to buy the company at about $60 per share. However, there has been no confirmation from either side just yet.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on FSLR. In particular, we’re watching to see if there is any validity to this rumor. Considering the current share price and the rumored acquisition price, I’m not expecting this to actually happen. However, if it does, it will be big for shareholders. We’ll be keeping a close eye on the news and bringing it to you as it breaks!

Motorola Solutions Inc MSI Stock News

Motorola Solutions Inc (NYSE: MSI)

Motorola Solutions was already having a bit of a rough start to the trading session today. At the opening bell, the stock was already trading slightly in the green. From there, it started to head further down on a slow, yet steady run. However, things went from bad to worse minutes ago as the stock started to spike downward. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing, why, and what we’ll be watching for with regard to MSI ahead.





What We’re Seeing From MSI

As mentioned above, Motorola Solutions was having a rough day in the market to start the session. After starting the trading session off slightly in the red, the stock continued downward on a slow, yet steady pace. Moreover, things got real bad just minutes ago when the stock started to spike further down into the abyss. At the moment (10:19), MSI is trading at $79.98 per share after a loss of $2.75 per share (3.36%) thus far today.

Why The Stock Is Falling

As is almost always the case, our partners at Trade Ideas were the first to give us the alert that MSI was making a run for the bottom. As soon as we were alerted, the CNA Finance team went to work to find what was causing the movement. In this case, it took what seemed like no time at all to dig up the story.




At the moment, it seems as though the decline on Motorola Solutions is the result of comments made by Citron. In a short note on CNBC minutes ago, Citron said that now was the time to short the stock, outlining some concerns that I’m sure they will expound upon later. The concerns were largely around how the Trump presidency will affect the company. As a result, investors are concerned, pushing the stock downward.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on MSI. In particular, we’re watching to see the details surrounding the cautious comments by Citron and how investors react as these details emerge. We’ll be watching the news closely and bringing it to you as it breaks!

Himax Technologies, Inc. HIMX Stock News

Himax Technologies, Inc. (ADR) (NASDAQ: HIMX)

Himax Technologies was off to what seemed to be a relatively normal day in the market today. When the opening bell rang, the stock was trading slightly in the green. Throughout the session, the stock has seen its fair share of ups and downs, but has maintained its position in the green. However, minutes ago, things changed for the worse as the stock started spiking downward. Below, we’ll talk about what we’re seeing from HIMX, why, and what we’ll be watching for ahead.





What We’re Seeing From HIMX

As mentioned above, today seemed to be a pretty normal day for Himax Technologies. The stock started the day in the green and stayed above the breakeven point through some ups and downs. However, the stock started spiking downward minutes ago, giving up all of the gains it had seen today. Currently (12:34), HIMX is trading at $5.24 per share after no gain or loss.

Why The Stock Is Falling

As is almost always the case, our partners at Trade Ideas were the first to alert us to the downward movement on HIMX. As soon as they did, the CNA Finance team started to look for the reason for the movement. While we weren’t able to find any fundamental news released by the company that would cause such a drop, we did find an interesting rumor in the social space.




At the moment, there’s a rumor surfacing about Himax Technologies on just about every popular social network out there. The rumor suggests that Morgan Stanley will downgrade the stock. Of course, key analyst downgrades often lead to downward pressure on securities. So, it seems as though investors are reacting to the rumors.

What We’ll Be Watching For Ahead

Moving forward, the CNA Finance team will be keeping a close eye on HIMX. In particular, we’ll be watching to see if Morgan Stanley does indeed downgrade the stock, and if so, the reasons they provide for the downgrade and the new price target that’s likely to come with such news. We’ll keep a close eye on the news and bring it to you as it breaks!
