Today's PUMPs & dumpS


Just two days ago we were offering up kudos to the Hettinger family for the clinic they were putting on regarding the sensible way of executing a Pump & Dump on HPGS.  We were especially complimentary of the fact that they were spreading out their touts' recommendations and supporting the low end of a trading range.  The very next day, a stampede of touts starting pushing the stock and since yesterday's close the urgency of the promotion has noticeably and significantly been ramped up.  This is usually the sign of a massive dump coming from the insiders and a surrendering of the bottom of the trading range.  We would not be surprised if the stock fell out of bed in the next day or two, leaving a trail of bag holders in its wake.

We've been asked (and have complied) by the regulators for our notes on a recent advisory we issued.  At the request of the authorities, we are not going to reveal the subject company of the investigation but we are led to believe that a matter of interest is the lack of any refute by the company of our allegations.  This is even more interesting considering that we sent out a draft copy of the advisory to the President of the company 12 hours in advance of emailing to our subscribers.  We gave him the advance copy because he approached us in order to inquire of the nature of our advisory once we had publicly made known our investigation and pending release.  This is the second time we've cooperated with a regulatory investigation, the first being in conjunction with UTOG, which has since been suspended from trading.

Finally, several of our subscribers have said that they have mailed the recent EFRDF promotional brochure to us and we should receive it soon.  We thank everyone who have helped us out here and are thrilled that so many of you recognize that ending microcap stock scams are a team effort.
