One point you may need to clear up is which Mr Gardner you are referring to. There are two, Tom and David, brothers and co-founders of The Motley Fool. They are not interchangeable.

A second point is that you asked your question on a public board, Having subscribed to a Motley Fool service, you have access to a set of discussion boards specific to that service. For example, if you subscribed to Motley Fool Stock Advisor you can see that list here: Those boards are monitored by MF personnel and you have a good chance of getting a response if you choose an appropriate board there for your question. Your chance of a response here is about zero, as the public boards are not monitored the same way the paid boards are.

Finally, DDD is a risky, speculative, and volatile stock. The risks are great, but the potential gain if held for the long term, and I do mean long (3 to 5 years minimum, could be longer) might be huge. One thing is certain - if it does pay off years from now it will rise and fall many times on the way up. You may have bought it near a recent high, but it was only a little over a month ago that it was at the current price, and at the time that was a new high. There are no guarantees in investing, but for someone prepared to be patient and can hold still while the price fluctuates it might pay off handsomely. (Or not!)

Good luck!
