    50 cent 8.7 million dollar tweet

    Rapper 50 Cent may have momentarily gotten $8.7 million richer after encouraging his Twitter followers to invest in a money-losing penny stock, but now the hip hopper may be in big trouble with the Security Exchange Commission. "There are very strict guidelines as to what a person can do in terms of possibly manipulating the value of a stock," financial expert and 60-Minute Money Workout author Ellie Kay tells FOX411. "I don't think it would be a huge surprise to anyone if 50 Cent were investigated for what he did." On the SEC's web site, a list for common violations that could lead the government agency to conduct an investigation include "manipulating the market prices of securities." (Fox News)

    The fact that he made 8 million on a stock that was failing is prove that you should not encourage people you buy your stock. All those people that bought this stock to make him so much money how much money do you thing they made.
