U.S. SEC suspends trading in 15 companies because of questionable trading, social media activity

WASHINGTON, Feb 26 (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission said it had suspended on Friday trade in the securities of 15 companies because of "questionable trading and social media activity."

The agency said in a statement the action was part of its "continuing effort to respond to potential attempts to exploit investors during the recent market volatility." (Reporting by Tim Ahmann; Writing by Mohammad Zargham)
