[SEC Cracking down on 'Shell' Trading]
Just like anything else, there is always someone taking advantage of an idea and ripping everyone off.

ENRON was a TOTAL sham. But do we associate them to [b:deaa8da933]ALL[/b:deaa8da933] high-growth LISTED stocks? I don’t think so.

Likewise, not [b:deaa8da933]ALL[/b:deaa8da933] “Shell Companies” are dreadful "pump and dump" schemes. There are MANY “Shell Companies” that are legitimate, current in their SEC reporting requirements, and serving a practical and useful purpose by allowing a private company to go public at a much lower cost than a conventional IPO.

It is my opinion that the story (“SEC Cracking Down on ‘Shell’ Trading”, 6/8/2004) from “” should have contrasted the mentioned non-listed junk pinksheet “Shell Companies” to the many legitimate SEC reporting “Shell Companies” listed on the OTCBB.

NOTE: none of the sham “Shell Companies” listed in the article appear on the Profile List.
