Reunited with the $FATH - Part 3: This time is different...but why TF does it need to be!?

"Were going to play to win every single day", "We don't use the T word, Try is a bad word, we focus on the Do" - Ryan Martin - CEO at Fathom Digital Manufacturing I posted a DD 3 months ago pointing out the squeeze metrics of this company, a deep dive into the company and sector turned what I thought (and still is) a squeeze play into a potential value play. Round 3...FIGHT... But how is it different this time? Ok, so what's different this time. What TF needs to be different, SP DOUBLED LAST TIME???!!! Well what is most obviously different this time is that $FATH proved that stock price can double. Over 100% actually from $5.04 to $11.50 (in 6 days) and it did this on low volume. We are also at a nice fib support that we can see was tested twice on the run up to $11 and tested this level on the previous two trading days as well. I believe this to be the accumulated long level, with more being added now. Today we saw some big buys, likely by Siguler Guff a hedge fund. $FATH made up 29.23% of their portfolio on 01/27/22. They have been buying the dip ever since. They see the low float and the possibility of this stock. Stock volume was 54% short today (3/28/22) yet the stock price rose 6.16%, on very low volume. Nice 78 fib respect and an engulfing candle on the daily Stock volume was 54% short today (3/28/22) yet the stock price rose 6.16%, on very low volume Squeeze Metrics Float-2.3M Total share float, 49.2M shares are locked up until the stock trades above $12 dollars for 20 days out of a 30-day period 2.3M share float, all other shares are locked up until $12 Insider and Hedge fund ownership-The floor should be $7.92. Check out the holders average price on shares. Not to mention total ownership is close to 97%. This data corroborates the float above. 97% ownership and holding Siguler Guff Positions on 01/27/22. They have likely been adding on every dip and todays 1:00pm CST volume is what got me adding ​ FTD's-Doesn't look like much but look what happened on its last run. Near FTD lows, stock starts to diverge and then the FTD's get silly. FTD's from 02-08-22 to present have not been delivered. That's roughly 1,613,000 shares that need to be delivered. If I were a hedge fund I'd rather turn a profit and buy these shares at $7 or below. And look what happened last time in short positions section. Returned shares + Retail + Insider buying = Squeeze Time ​ Cost to Borrow-Borrow rate continues to rise by the day. @ 324.76% today.

Oh, maybe you went from low-level production and proved yourself and now $TSLA, $GE and $AMZN want the whole enchilada?

FATH buys up local fabrication companies that support its target clients manufacturing facilities (i.e. $TSLA, $GE, $AMZN etc.).

Reunited with the $FATH - Part 3: This time is different...but why TF does it need to be!?

bullish

"Were going to play to win every single day", "We don't use the T word, Try is a bad word, we focus on the Do" - Ryan Martin - CEO at Fathom Digital Manufacturing

I posted a DD 3 months ago pointing out the squeeze metrics of this company, a deep dive into the company and sector turned what I thought (and still is) a squeeze play into a potential value play. Round 3...FIGHT...

But how is it different this time?

Ok, so what's different this time. What TF needs to be different, SP DOUBLED LAST TIME???!!! Well what is most obviously different this time is that $FATH proved that stock price can double. Over 100% actually from $5.04 to $11.50 (in 6 days) and it did this on low volume. We are also at a nice fib support that we can see was tested twice on the run up to $11 and tested this level on the previous two trading days as well.

They have been buying the dip ever since. They see the low float and the possibility of this stock.

Stock volume was 54% short today (3/28/22) yet the stock price rose 6.16%, on very low volume. Nice 78 fib respect and an engulfing candle on the daily

97% ownership and holding

Siguler Guff Positions on 01/27/22. They have likely been adding on every dip and todays 1:00pm CST volume is what got me adding

FTD's-Doesn't look like much but look what happened on its last run. Near FTD lows, stock starts to diverge and then the FTD's get silly.

FTD's from 02-08-22 to present have not been delivered. That's roughly 1,613,000 shares that need to be delivered. If I were a hedge fund I'd rather turn a profit and buy these shares at $7 or below.

Cost to Borrow-Borrow rate continues to rise by the day. @ 324.76% today. Cost to borrow data also shows us that likely one source owns all of these as min, avg and max borrow fee are the same



Short Positions & Short Interest-While 53% of the volume today was short, the stock still made a 6% gain. Short interest of float is reported as 3.93%, this data is based on the entire float of 49.2M shares. Only 2.3M shares are available
