Thanks to Tim Lento for finding the landing page at CNTOReport.com and tweeting about it. Judging by the volume and the lack of emails promoting it, I guess that it has not yet been promoted and most of the volume is either wash trading or pre-promotion speculators.
[Edit 2013-6-10]: I see now that I first received emails promoting CNTO on 5/29 from firstname.lastname@example.org and since then every few days I have received new emails from another crappy stock promoter.
