Coincidences Too Hard to Ignore. Hudson Group… Monster Digital, A Platinum Opportunity?

A Monster Inc. Pump and Dump? Perhaps Much Ado About Nothing… We Don’t Think So…. The Hudson Group Connection? Platinum???

By:  LostMessiah, 29/12/16

Yesterday, in a fluke series of events, one of us noticed that the shares of several companies were behaving irrationally. Among them were the shares of Monster Digital Inc..  At about 1:00pm (EST) Monster Digital, Inc.’s (MSDI) share price had nearly doubled from the morning. Its trading volume was nearly quadrupled. At one point during the day it had gone up 114%. As the day continued, the shares peaked and then began sliding.  

There was no news, nothing of any interest that should have logically pushed the shares up as high as they were trading or as low as they landed.  http://www.marketwatch.com/investing/stock/msdi  

Tweets were going crazy (see below) as were Bloomberg posts, most of which were both perplexed and ecstatic, depending upon what positions were held by the particular “tweeter”. One trader thanked the market for his significant short on the shares of MSDI.  Another came right out and said that the company was the perfect target for a “pump and dump”.  http://stocktwits.com/symbol/MSDI

Today, the shares are not only down from their open yesterday morning but they have sunk further as of today’s opening. Again there was no news yesterday and no new news today that should have caused this much activity in this particular company.

We decided to dig because this company fits with impeccable clarity the pattern of companies serially targeted by Platinum Partners: an obscure company, tech or oil/energy driven, with a following of tech geeks or oil bigwigs, small, IPO over-valued, followers unsophisticated, etc. etc.  We decided to go digging for a Platinum Partners connection.

And we found one.

Of recent notice, on December 5, 2016 Monster Digital, Inc. exhibited new products at the Hudson Group show in Las Vegas. An article in Marketwired on the 9th mentioned the show.  The link to the article is listed as follows: http://www.nasdaq.com/press-release/monster-digital-inc-exhibits-new-products-at-hudson-group-show-20161209-00411

As it would happen, the current Chief Marketing Officer of Platinum Partners is also the former Chief Marketing Officer of Hudson Group. The two week span of time between the Hudson Show (wherein Monster exhibited) and yesterday’s market activity is simply too hard to ignore.

We may be wrong.  Who knows? This may just be coincidental. We don’t think so.  Looks like a duck. Smells like a duck… You know the rest…

In fact, we think that we found the tiniest of threads to link MSDI with Platinum. We have little doubt that there is something far more nefarious lurking.  There were other stocks that behaved oddly yesterday and some today. Many of them fit the pattern. We are simply too understaffed to follow all of the breadcrumbs. We are banking on the possibility that by posting this, someone will follow leads where we cannot. Forgive the banking pun…

We hope that people who read this will send along information, watch the newswires and market industry news and tweets. We hope the federal authorities are paying attention.
