Securities Fraud

Coral Capital Partners blog on securities fraud. Our focus is on the types of fraud that is pervasive in fund raising for private companies and publicly traded companies in the the small cap and micro-cap markets. Additionally we look at a the common frauds that occur in the stock market for these companies. The majority of the blog articles we have written look at enforcement actions by the Securities Exchange Commission, what activities the parties engaged in to be charged by the SEC, and what violations the SEC charged them with.

Market Manipulation and “Noneconomical Trading”

Coral Capital Partners looks at a SEC Enforcement Action for market manipulation and non-economical trading. This is an extremely interesting look at the manipulation of the public market for a micro-cap company’s common stock, how it was accomplished, and the penalties imposed. We also look at the SEC ‘s definition of these types of market manipulation and where they run afoul of the Exchange Act of 1934. This blog and the associated SEC Litigation Release and Complaint filed in Federal Court provide a very interesting read.
