‘Pump and dump’ activities under scrutiny


The Securities Commission’s (SC) warning to investors over “pump and dump” scams over the week came about one year after Bursa Malaysia issued the same caution in a circular to the heads of dealing and compliance of stockbroking companies last March.

According to some market observers, warnings about “pump and dump” activities are timely and appropriate, considering the fact that there are now more new investors entering the local equity market.
