    Michael,

    Huge fan of yours here. How long do you anticipate this stock will be rising before it is dumped?

    1. Michael Goode

      Good question. You never can know. And do keep in mind that the dumping of insiders’ shares starts at the very beginning. The price goes down at the point when the buying of naive investors and traders is overwhelmed by the selling of insiders and earlier traders. When I do buy pumps I always play the price action and get out at the first sign of weakness. I did buy 5k shares of TQLA this morning after I posted this article, but if I had no position I wouldn’t buy it now — the volume isn’t good and it hasn’t upticked in hours.

    Thanks Michael! I bought it first thing this morning when I saw your update. I bought it at 0.89. Hopefully I can sell it before it goes full throttle on dropping.
