    How Hedge Funds Manipulate Stocks - Great Read for BBRY Longs! - Don't fall for the dupe!

    "What's important when you are in that hedge-fund mode is to not do anything remotely truthful because the truth is so against your view, that it's important to create a new truth, to develop a fiction." Cramer described a variety of tactics that hedge fund managers use to affect a stock's price. Cramer said that one strategy to keep a stock price down is to spread false rumors to reporters he described as "the Pisanis of the world". The comment was a reference to CNBC correspondent Bob Pisani, who reports from the trading floor of the New York Stock Exchange. "You have to use these guys," said Cramer. He also discussed giving information to "the bozo reporter from The Wall Street Journal" to get an article published. Cramer said this practice, although illegal, is easy to do "because the SEC doesn't understand it."

      the price action on this stock worries the #$%$ out of me,downward drift and decling volumes each day,worse you see little buying pressure during the day,thats a bad sighn.

    • right because stocks can only be manipulated to the downside.


    • this is why i'm doing my part to keep my ears as low as possible and research the regular consumer's sentiment... you can easily do this by searching through Twitter hashtags relevant to BBRY:

      Just do a Google search on these and read through the first link you see:

      Then you'll know for sure if this stuff is selling or not... based on my "research", facts check out. Lots of people have been dumping their Galaxies and iPhones to get the Z10.

        It's good to see people using their brain and doing their homework.Take the next step and see how your research affects share price.Then you have some facts to go by.I didn't watch Cramer video but I can only imagine.The first thing I learned about stock market don't listen to Cramer.But to be fair Hlf was a stock targeted by one of the people I've refered to as "the big shorties" .If Cramers video explained how Akerman and people like him work now you have an idea what your up against.They're not gonna run away peeing their pants in fear easily this is how they've made their billions.I've made repeated posts trying to explain this to people because I get sick of watching message board cheerleaders lead people into following them then reading some poor guys post about how he lost his shirt buying into the hype.I have money in BB and have made money trading it.I think good things could happen and I don't bash the stock just the cheerleaders. I do get a big laugh out of how they pump up the mother of all squeezes and then cry foul when it turns out they made wrong decision.My advice identify the paid bashers and cheerleaders and don't pay attention to them,keep doing your own homework but do keep an open mind to what serious investors and traders long and short have to say.And if you're up this early watch your level 2 sometimes you might get the oppertunity to be one of the "evil manipulators". good luck

        Sentiment: Hold

      • Rimtards have long held the belief that manipulation only happens by shorts. They are quiet as a mouse about the subject when the stock is bouncing 70%. As always, stop losses are as sac-religious to the RIM investor. Then the cries of conspiracy return when the stock retraces.

    • Tape,
      This sure looks familiar...

      "Before I began researching the information for this article, I began to see (HLF) trading activity that didn't make sense to me. In fact, it really didn't make sense that two companies under different ownership and management but mainly just sharing the commonality of being MLM's, Herbalife's and Nu Skin's (NUS) shares were both attacked at the same time. Here is a link to both company's charts- HLF chart and NUS Chart , where you can see how their share price has traded over the last few months. (SUGGESTION: Use 6 month time period as well as candlestick format for the charts)

      Even though I believe there has been manipulation of Herbalife's (HLF) shares on a daily basis, I want to focus on the manipulation that occurred immediately after Herbalife reported Record 2nd Quarter 2012 which I discuss in greater detail in my article- "Herbalife Shorts Shorted More Shares To Stop Upward Share Price Momentum" In order to stop longs enthusiasm and the momentum created by a great 2nd quarter, shorts continued to added 585,409 shares of HLF shorted to their short positions over the period August 1, 2012 to August 15, 2012 to not only stop Herbalife's share price from rising but to also knock it back down by $1.85-"
