Pull up a one-year graph of the stock price. (I like Google Finance for this.) Look at what happened from Feb to Mar, and in May. Then look what happened after those dips. Then take a good look at the last few months. The current price has only fallen back to where it was in July, so it has lost about 2 months of gains.

I know when you bought at a recent high and it has fallen so quickly from there it is hard to take the long view. The problem is that in the short view DDD is going to make these kinds of dips and rises, which makes short-term investing in DDD not much more than gambling. However when I look long term - years - I think the last year is just the start of the rise for DDD. Of course I could be wrong, but that's where I've got some money.
