Hello, everyone. Newbie investor and first-time poster here. I've never used a brokerage before and have only invested in my 401-K at work, so I have much to learn and little time in which to do it.

To prove just how financially uneducated I am, my first Motley Fool-recommended stock purchase was DDD. I bought at $66.59, not realizing just how overpriced the stock probably is. Ouch. At least I was cautious and only purchased 30 shares. Being a financial "babe in the woods," I have to ask the experts here. Do you think people are manipulating the DDD stock price so that they can buy at a lower price right before it splits? Does that even make any sense?
