Would anyone here "pump and dump" Maria Bartiromo?

Or just "pump and pump" her instead?

I remember watching him when I was in my mid-teens. I was just stunned by how he could move a stock simply by his words. I didn't really understand what was going on until much later. I learned then that guys like that and a news story could move a stock. I was previously not aware how the whole thing worked. Thought it was just earnings, forecasts and honest business crap.

At least he taught me that the whole thing is a f*cking con job. Well, of course there are many real companies you can invest in. I just mean how the whole market works. Churning cash. Moving from one company to the next. Buying low, enticing the suckers to ride along, and cashing out with their contributions.

Learned a lot from the Dorf and I didn't really know it at the time. But, he did teach me the important lesson of buy the rumor, sell the news. That sh*t seems to be how the market really works because you can almost bank on it all the time.

The fact that he never got charged by the SEC is proof to me that they just don't give a sh*t about this stuff. Sure, they're going after some people now, but it still goes on. It will always go on.

Cramer isn't a pump and dumper, he's just a crappy stock picker. He always preens about his stocks that do well, but only mentions the losers if someone calls in and asks about it.

/ got burned by his "best stock of 2011", Alcoa. lost 30%
// got burned by "Fords comeback is powered by rocket fuel". Lost another 30%
/// started paying attention, his stocks tend to do unwell
