SEC Suspends Trading Of 35 Companies Touted In Spam Email Campaigns – Thank-You SEC!

Good morning to you all. On behalf of AGORACOM and everyone we know in the small-cap space, we applaud and thank the SEC for its announcement yesterday. As an advocate of legitimate small-cap companies across North America, we have done our part in drawing attention to this very serious problem which is tainting an entire industry of legitimate small and micro-cap companies that do not engage in such practices.

To this end, I gave a keynote speach on this very matter at the PIPEs Conference in New York this past November, titled “E-Mail Promotion Is Dead – How To Conduct Great Investor Relations In A Web 2.0 World” in front of more than 100 investment bankers. Reaction to the speach was so positive tha we made it available by webcast for everyone to view:

We hope this is just the beginning of things to come out of the SEC.
