Pump and dump spam flogs a dead horse with Biostem U.S. Corporation (HAIR)

About a month-and-a-half ago I had a look at the pump-and-dump spam promoting Biostem U.S. Corporation (HAIR) when it was trading at around $0.30.

Surprisingly, the pump-and-dump spam is still ongoing which will make it nearly two months of spam on one single stock..

So, out of curiosity I schlepped across to look at their stock price and was slightly surprised to see that it has lost around 90% of its value since the spam run started. What happened? Well, on 19th July the stock price fell off a cliff when rather predictably Biostem announced that it was shutting up shop, and looking at news reports there seems to be little chance of recovery.

But now with shares bouncing along at around the 3 to 4 cents mark the pump-and-dump seems to be continuing, and since the collapse it appears that around 9.6 million shares have been traded, which is about 8.4% of the total equity. At today's prices those shares are worth about $336,000. A little over a year ago, on May 28th 2012, Biostem stock peaked at $439 per share, at close of business yesterday they were just 3.5 cents.. a 99.2% drop. Somebody has certainly taken a haircut on these stocks..

Sounds like someone didn't manage to unload all their stock. Pity that :)

Yeah, it's gotta be hurting. However that much stock must be something that even the SEC can trace..
