Rapper/actor 50 Cent (Curtis Jackson) spent the weekend tweeting his followers to invest in the stock of H&H Imports and by doing so the stock went up 29 cents, making shareholder 50 Cent's stake increase by 8.7 million dollars.
"You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford," tweeted 50 Cent.
The rapper has over three million followers on Twitter and the company H&H, in which he owns 30 million shares also owns TV Goods, a marketing firm founded by Sharktank and Dragon's Den personality Kevin Harrington. Jackson didn't even have to Tweet much in order to convince many of his followers and the rest of the public to invest in the company, therefore boosting his stake massively.
"Check out TVGoods.com official site of Kevin Harrington. They are no joke get in now," tweeted 50 Cent.
Although H&H is in serious financial trouble and lost over a million dollars last quarter, Jackson is able to cash in his shares as high as 50 cents/share and can do so at any tume. H&H closed at 39 cents yesterday, up 29 cents after Jackson's tweet campaign.
