  1. How long do these pumps usually take to make an impact? And what is a normal length for the pump to keep a stock high?

    1. Mailer pumps like these vary greatly in length and impact. Some of them go up for one day before dropping, others go up for awhile. See the charts of AGIN and LOTE for a couple recent mailer pumps with different outcomes.

    1. I don’t think you can. The SEC never even sued the company. You could talk to Illinois securities regulators. But the statute of limitations has already run out so I don’t think you could even sue them yourself if you wanted to.
