BroadVision (BVSN +17%) continues its epic 2012 romp, now up 257% YTD on no news of note. The move likely shows what stock promoters working with a tiny float can occasionally accomplish. Tim Collins notes no options trade on the stock, making engineering a short squeeze a lot easier. Coming soon: the crash and the SEC investigation?

    One of the best pumps ever. If someone ever builds a stock promoter hall of fame, Johnathan Lebed should have a statue at the front door! $8 to $44. Impressive work.

    Ian,

     

    I'm an investor, intrigued with NIA's "pump" job of BVSN.
    In the disclaimer, NIA says they receive no compensation from the companies they promote.
    Q. - Do promoters usually contract with companies they promote?
    I emailed Jonathan Lebed & asked what are his credentials. No reply yet.
    Thank you.

    They took a stock with $12/share of cash and a business with almost nothing (revenues declining 20% a year, old outdated junk software), and managed to get the stock to soar to $44/share. Now, predictably, it is crashing.

     

    That is what we mean when we say a stock was "pumped."
