  • With all the dumb money sloshing around stock markets right now. He's a throwback to the original WSB: 14-year-old Jonathan Lebed Link
    ForexLive Fri 29 May 2020 18:39

    A New Jersey teenager has agreed to repay $285,000 that stock regulators said he made when he was 14 by manipulating stocks via the Internet.

    The Securities and Exchange Commission said Wednesday that Jonathan G. Lebed bought large blocks of penny stocks, hyped them on financial message boards and then dumped his shares after the price rose.

    In some instances, Lebed placed an order just before the market closed to sell a stock at a specified price--known as a limit order--so he wouldn’t miss an anticipated price spike in the stock while he was in school the next day, the SEC said.

    The 11 alleged civil violations, involving shares of nine companies, took place from Aug. 23, 1999, to Feb. 4. The case against Lebed, who is now 15, marks the first time the SEC has brought a case against a minor.
