Today's PUMPs & dumpS

Not So HOT-M Stuff

An email disseminated by PennyStockNewsletter.info yesterday afternoon, really tickled our fancy.  At yesterday's open, this tout began a promotion on HOTM.  It's the third Pump & Dump campaign in the last 60 days for HOTM, but the first time PSN has taken a crack at it.  The previous clearance sales the insiders held on this stock raised some cash, but probably not quite as stellar results as they had hoped.

Yesterday's start to this campaign produced even worse results, as only $75K worth of stock exchanged hands.  The meager volume was what prompted PSN's follow up email during the lunch hour.
"Keep this one on your radar today, it's already up 30% and is likely to turn over even more as the day progresses.  There isn't likely to be much profit-taking to worry about since most of the previous buyers are in at pre-drop prices, so there is a strong chance for some good gains here for savvy traders!"
Why is this email so amusing?  Read it again.  "There isn't likely to be much profit-taking to worry about since most of the previous buyers are in at pre-drop prices..." .  Translation:  "Everybody's losing their ass from the previous Pump & Dump campaigns, so they probably hope to recover a little bit more of their losses before selling".  Hysterical, right?

There may be some truth to this statement.  HOTM is down 80% from it's lofty and way over-priced highs during the previous campaigns.  Some of the bag-holders who still haven't learned their lesson, may be holding on in hopes of higher prices.  These fools are forgetting one thing.  The insiders didn't pay for this Pump & Dump scheme to get the suckers off the hook.  They are having their stock pimped so that they can sell some more to new suckers.

The failure of HOTM was rather predictable if you read our previous advisory on this garbage.

Add Epic Stock PIcks to the list of now 8 touts currently pumping the crap out of WTFS.  This one has become the next example of a smart sideways Pump & Dump, whereby the increased volume has really produced no increase in the share price. Sideways PnDs are smart because the lack of price increase means the newcomers aren't going to be worried that they missed the boat, while bag holders from the previous days aren't ready to sell yet as there is no profit to book.  Sure enough, as with all sideways PnDs this will fall out of bed when the pimping is over and suddenly it will be too late for the bag holders to break even as they get left....well - holding the bag.

Speaking of a barrage of pimps getting on the same band wagon, the insiders at CRWV have pulled out all the stops and right off the bat hired a load stock pimps to tout the multitude of shares they have for sale.  We think that these guys are foolish because it is smarter to spread out the touts in order to create a longer lasting pyramid scheme, much like WTFS is doing and POTG before that.  Still, the sudden influx of pimps whoring this stuff has got our attention and we are researching CRWV right now with the expectation that we will have an advisory for you later this afternoon.  In the meantime, if you really want to gamble on something based out of Las Vegas, we suggest the Wynn Hotel, where at least you'll have more fun losing money.
