PPD on CAPS

Recs

November 10, 2007 – Comments (3)

Has anyone else noticed that a good number of the comments on PPD on CAPS are from players that have a single stock pick -- PPD?

I figured OSTK might have a similar situation, but proportionately the number is much lower.

Kopp,

It's not that surprising.  While some of them mention in their pitches that they work for PPD, I'd bet many do but don't mention it. While that is somewhat unethical, it isn't illegal (that I know of) and it doesn't really hurt CAPS at all.

After all, if the only pick that these people make is PPD, they won't have scores and won't affect the rating.

Good point Chris -- I guess I was noting it more from the "that's interesting" angle than the "that's illegal" angle.

I have a feeling it says something about the shareholder base of PPD...

So what are you saying wait for the pop and short?  That is a pretty good point and observation.
