December 16, 2014

Dear Friends,

Today, the SEC  announced charges against an equity research firm owner for engaging in wash trades Рcreating the misleading appearance of consistent active trading in an otherwise thinly traded stock.

Additionally, the SEC alleges that the owner and his employees acted as unregistered brokers by raising over $2.5 million from investors, on behalf of an issuer, in two private placements, without first registering with the SEC.
