Your name is M. LaRae Bakerink, correct?
in an earlier post you said "Thank you for the correction. But you had to dig down 3 levels to find that typo. If you have a question about our firm, I would be happy to answer."
So here are my initial 3 questions:
Thank you in advance for your answers.
1. Is Steven C. Bakerink - Director of Trading your husband? ...or other relation?
This was on your web site:
Steven C. Bakerink - Director of Trading
Mr. Bakerink has worked on the trading desk in the securities industry for over 25 years. he is versed in all facets of order execution and market making, servicing independent brokers, institutional investors and retail customers. Mr. Bakerink has a BS in Finance degree from San Diego State University.
2. Did Steven C. Bakerink or any other trader at your firm ever short ONTY?
3. If so, how many shares, and do you see this as a conflict of interest?
I can't believe your firm's sell rating drove shareholders to sell and this stock down over 7% at its low today!!!
Yesterday I wanted to check something on WBB Security’s website, so I Googled “WBB” to find their URL again. No prob. There it was at the 3rd search result from the top. As I was clicking on it, I couldn’t help but notice the 4th result, just below it.
I would like to add some questions for Mrs. Bakerink......
4. How's that Celldex investment working out for ya?
5. Don't you think you should take that "Mensa" thing off your bio? When you're really smart others will tell you. You won't have to tell them!
6. How exactly does your firm define "independent research"?
7. Did you bet on the Colts to win the Superbowl?
....This is going to get fun....
I personally think something funny is going on especially when the press release looked like it could have been written by Gaby.
Also the firm under Sec disclosures for the Second Quarter 2008 listed Bernie Madoff as one of their larger clients.
Now let me ask you how honest is a five member firm with really no proven Research Department, the Bio-tech guy has no real credentials.
But ONTY should also initiate a complaint if this was an attempt to manipulate the stock. It sure looked like a short run for a while. Blocks of 5 to 10K of stock were sold, all on sequentially lowere trades. At the end of the day, some cover looked to appear. You can tell when you see shares sold at 4.934 and 4.93001. Those prices are not executed for retail investors, believe me.
Even better....they have an online complaint form and one of the boxes is "stock manipulation"
They also take complaints about individual brokers and brokerage firms. Rise up and file those complaints!!!
