July 29, 2011: Today's PUMPs & dumpS


We notice that TDEY is going to give it another try for the first time since we destroyed last May's attempt at a Pump & Dump with a searing article on the head honcho, Marc Jablon, the brains behind the CyberKey scandal.  If you've been looking at this piece of crap, and you haven't read that article,  we'd suggest that you take a read.

We're still disgusted with tout, The Lotto Pick, and their illegal question in Wednesday nights email to their subscribers, "Can VPLM Jump 100% Tomorrow?", which was purely designed to give false hope to the suckers out there.  Funny how they didn't respond to their own question after yesterday's close.  That answer would be, "NOT EVEN CLOSE"  The stock closed up 3% after being up as much as 15%, embarrassingly short of their inference.  The promotion did manage to raise a couple of hundred thousand dollars for the insiders who were dumping yesterday, so I guess the pimp's dispicible tactics paid off and I'm sure that noboy at The Lotto Pick lost any sleep.

Today's PIMP award, given to the tout who exhibits the most disgusting display of stock prostitution, goes to Epic Stock Picks and it's twin sister Stocks Gone Wild.  Yesterday, the pair began pumping LEXO, a recent issue that hasn't put out any press since last October and has barely ever even traded.  Well the dupes started buying in force at the open driving the stock up to 6 cents immediately.  It only lasted there for a few seconds but long enough for the twins to claim gains of 1850%.  What they didn't tell you is that the stock closed at just over a penny, giving anybody who bought in at the high of the day, a potential loss of over 80%!  The good news is that the entire dollar volume of the stock was an unspectacular $60,000 so hopefully nobody lost too much money, but congratulations to those who insist on lining the pockets of insiders with these stupid pie-in-the-sky investments.  I mean "Gee!".  No press releases since October!  Did any of yesterday's buyers even know what this company does?
