Today's PUMPs & dumpS

Alright, We Heard You The First Time!

We're not sure why, but some touts think that sending out multiple emails on the same subject somehow convinces their dupes to buy the stock they're pimping at the moment.  Au contraire mon frere, it's more like receiving a baseball bat to the head and is likely to not only likely to turn the recipient of the email off the pumped stock, but clue him on what it is you actually do for a living.  Most buyers of anything will not go for the hard sell.  In the case of promoting stocks, a hard sell is a sure sign of not only a Pump & Dump, but a desperate one at that.

Take for example, PennyStockAlley.com, one of several touts who have been pumping out so many emails on CRWV, you'd think they were getting paid by the email.  In three days we received 7 emails from PSA effectively saying exactly the same thing: "You're a moron if you don't buy CRWV". All told, we received 66 emails since Tuesday from the nine touts who are pretty much repeating PSA's ploy.  And each one of them take credit for finding this "very special play".  The fact is that the insiders of CRWV have a lot of stock to move and they are using whatever resource is out there to brainwash you into falling for it.  And guaranteed that at the end of the promotion, a lot of people will get hurt.

But perhaps the worst example of a tout using a child-like temper tantrum to get your attention is MarketReturn.us.  Time and time again they pump out the same email several times in the same day.  Yesterday it was ASPZ with an astounding 6 emails.  And all they managed to generate was $20K worth of trades for their efforts.

Since Wednesday August 17, we received 21 emails from MRT, all touting ASPZ and including this professionally created gem, which we received a total of 7 times; 4 times just last Monday:

"We are not like the other firms that just send you an email!!!"  Huh?  That's exactly what you are and even more so.

"We would never show you something that wasnt [sic] worth your time."  OK, I'm convinced. 

In the 7 trading day period up to and including the writing of this alert, about 300,000 shares of ASPZ have traded for a total value of less than $50K.  Maybe MRT needs to heed the old adage that the best way to handle a child during a temper tantrum is to ignore him.  That certainly seems to be what the public is doing.
