Pumping penny-stocks on YouTube

Posted by AGORACOM at 2:20 PM on Saturday, February 24th, 2007

Zac Bisonette has a great article on bloggingstocks about pump ‘n dump promoters using YouTube as another avenue for stock promotion. The most imporant, however, is that tactics such as e-mail spam, direct mail and telephone boiler rooms are no match for some simple due diligence – check the SEC litigation database by running names of companies, officers and directors through it. In just a couple of minutes, you’ll go a long way towards determining whether a possible investment is just another scam.

By the way, here is the “AGORACOM” search result under SEC litigation. One of the rare instances I can be proud of seeing “No documents matched your query.”


P.S. YouTube can be used for legitimate stock marketing purposes. AGORACOM will be unveiling a YouTube profile just in time for PDAC 2007 and posting interviews with analysts, executives and attendees for the benefit of those who can’t make it to the biggest mining conference in the world

    Thanks for coming by..I’ve added the stock spam report to my RSS feed and will follow it for a little while to see how useful it is. Hope it works as well as I think it will work.

    It’s always a good idea to review the Stock Spam Report for a pennystock.

    By using the Spam Report, the common investor will now have an information tool in which to make a more informed investment decision, whether the investor chooses to catch the wave early or to stay away from a “too good to be true” stock scam, at least he or she will have a better map of the terrain surrounding their investment decision.
