Cramer Called It A ‘Pump And Dump Stock’
This activity in cannabis stock reached attention from Mad Money host and founder of The Street, Jim Cramer, who used it to explain how to “spot a pump and dump stock” on TheStreet Live last week.
According to Cramer, Sundial is the perfect example of a “pump and dump” stock, or a stock that uses “an illegal scheme” to cause a jump in the stock’s price via misleading announcements. (h/t The Street).
What’s more, Cramer emphasized that the government should get involved and follow these stocks closely in order to help protect retail investors.
On last Friday, Cramer tweeted about the company asking – “Has anyone currently 'trading' Sundial even been on their site?”
Yesterday he posted:
