How Two Seeking Alpha Articles Manipulated $PZZI Higher By 50%

The only thing worse than blatant stock promotion like this is subtle stock promotion.

Where the author might not own shares or get compensated to produce propaganda, but knows someone who owns a ton of shares and gets $ on the backend or gets favors or gifts from people with shares under the table. Continue reading

Wait A Minute, Is This Penny Stock Being Manipulated?

PennyStocking Silver subscribers and TIMalert subscribers know this ticker well and as of right now while I write this post Interactive Brokers has shares to short, but I’m not short just yet.

After all, it’s just a couple of paid for promotional mailers and a whole team of paid and conflicted promoters pushing this carcass of a company higher: 🙂 Continue reading

How DoublingStocks.com & Rudy Ruettiger Ripped Off This Naive Penny Stock Investor

PennyStocking Silver subscribers and TIMalert subscribers know I HATE getting emails from those who have lost big believing in penny stock promotions.

As you’ll see below, no matter how hard I try, how many instructional DVD packages I make and how many books I write, there is no way to save everyone as the reality that all penny stock promo companies are either worthless, scams or frauds is just too hard for people to believe.

The sad thing is that I’ve already written about this pump a few times, namely when those in charge are now getting busted for money laundering and fraud.

Exposing Pravat Kumar Pattanik & HotOTC.com As The 32 Professional Spammers & Penny Stock Promoters They Are

HotOTC is one of the 5 worst rated stock newsletters on Investimonials, but that didn’t stop them and their self-described SEO team of “32 professionals” from posting false reviews mentioning HotOTC in other people’s products.

I’d show you the spam, but the team behind Investimonials has gotten too efficient at deleting this junk so you’re just gonna have to trust me that their alias “Matthew Bracken” posted near-gibberish reviews on products like this one ignoring the actual product on which they were “reviewing” and instead talking up penny stocks and HotOTC….and they’ve spammed so much using this alias over the years that they forgot they had emailed me using the same alias and promoting the same HotOTC junk regarding advertising on this site a few years back.

Normally I don’t want to call out penny stock promoters–since they’re such an endangered species these days–but given that HotOTC is one of the moost incompetent promoters around…I’ve heard other promoters refer to this operation as “the full retard of promoters” (c’mon, never go full retard!)…and after I emailed these morons to stop spamming and then to have them continue spamming, well, they’ve left me no other choice…and I’ll refer back to this post and I encourage you to spread this post as much as possible so we can create some sort of discipline in penny stock promoters!

What Katy Perry Without Makeup Teaches Investors [PICTURE & VIDEO]

The other day I was arguing with my friend who starred in this TV show episode with me: Continue reading
