According to that Joshua Samuel Aaron, Gery Shalon, and Zvi Orenstein (all of Israel) manipulated the stock prices of GRAS, IDIO, NGMC, MSTG, SHOM, and BRND using stock promotions and wash trading while selling their shares into the market during the following periods:
SHOM from May 19, 2011 - May 25, 2011
GRAS during July of 2011
NGMC during August of 2011
MSTG during February of 2012
IDOI during July and August of 2012
BRND during October of 2012
MSTG, IDOI, and BRND were major Stock Castle promotions. The SEC does mention that Aaron, Shalon, and Orenstein used 20 stock promotion websites they controlled and does specifically mention stockcastle.com and two Stock Castle affiliated website sites (upcomingpennystocks.com and wallstreetpennystockadvisors.com) as being involved in the GRAS, NGMC, MSTG, IDOI, and BRND stock promotions.
I wonder if any more litigation will follow that talks more specifically about Stock Castle or about others that may have been involved in Stock Castle. It is hard to think about Stock Castle without thinking of the name Luke Zouvas.
Other tickers promoted by Stock Castle and affiliated promotion sites not mentioned in today's Complaint include LSTG in August of 2011, USGT in December of 2012, WILD in August of 2013, NVGC in November of 2013, IMTC in February of 2014, and IGPK in May of 2014.
