The stock is now down nearly 35% from its peak shortly after the company's debut on the stock market on Dec. 20.DTS (DTSI - Get Report), an Agoura Hills, Calif., entertainment technology provider, saw shares leap 12.5% to $27.40 after announcing a new sound technology to be unveiled this week at the 2008 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
