Dear Traders,

Our alert DJRT is doing so amazing that you are probably regretting you didn't buy it yet.

I'll tell you this point blank. If you didn't buy DJRT you are an idiot. Take 1 or 2k and go buy it right this second because it is going to go absolutely ballistic.

DJRT is the stock of the minute, of the hour, of the moment and my stock pick of the year!

GO buy DJRT right now and watch it kick past 10 dollars in a heartbeat.

The email is almost definitely nothing to do with pennystockcrew.com but is instead being spammed out by a criminally-controlled botnet.

DJRT is a loss-making stock which probably doesn't have good prospects according to it's own SEC filing.

The P&D spam started on 10th June, and we can see from the trading data that somebody bought 1.8 million shares just before the spam run started [via]

* This data reflects the latest intra-day delayed pricing.

This activity pushed the stock price up from 1.3 cents to nearly 5 cents. In recent years stocks have never traded particularly highly, but they recent dropped to the 1 cent area after trading from 2 to 5 cents.

Usually with a pump-and-dump spam such as this, it is either the spammers who are trying to manipulate the share price, or a stock holder seeking to boost the value of the shares so they can sell them. I have no evidence at all that anyone connected with Dale Jarrett Racing Adventure Inc has anything to do with this.

Typically, stocks promoted through P&D spams such as this will collapse after the spamming has finished, leaving investors out of pocket. Often the companies are on the verge of bankruptcy anyway, so investors sometimes lose everything. This too is likely to be a poor investment. Avoid.
