Stock Recommendation:

DSS stocks have been heavily beaten down on the street over the past six months, given its poor financial performance, operating losses and bottom line losses. Further, amid a volatile market condition, it would be wise to stick with fundamentally strong company rather than the weak one.

Also, DSS’s share price mostly tilted towards its 52W Low   (52-week H/L range USD 4.67 and USD 0.33) and trading well below its crucial long-term support level of 200-day SMAs, a long-term bearish trend. Based on the continuous losses, Ukraine crisis, regulation risk, unfavourable technical indicators, and current valuation, we recommend a “SELL" rating on the stock at the closing price of USD 0.66, up ~72%, as of February 28, 2022 at 01:45 PM ET.
