Hollywood, CA (PRWEB) June 16, 2009
"Stock Shock" is the first of 3 major films to be released about the fleecing of the American investor. This timely movie reveals the tricks of traders who use lightening fast market technology to make profitable bets on stocks they never even own, landing legitimate investors in the poorhouse. "Stock Shock" is told through the eyes of stunned Sirius XM investors who saw their stock nearly evaporate.
This movie exposes a technique known as naked short selling, which has resulted in the collapse of the stock value of some of America's most famous and promising public companies, all so that a small handful of jaded market manipulators could make a fast buck.
Thousands of investors have flocked to "Stock Shock" fan sites in anticipation of the release of the movie. Tens of thousands of American investors are twittering Stock Shock developments as word of the film and its message spreads.
"Stock Shock" zeroes in on one of the most shorted stocks on Nasdaq: Sirius XM, which hit a high of $9.00/share and then plummeted to a horrifying low of 5 cents in 2009, leaving an estimated one million investors with their dreams crushed and their bank accounts emptied. Stock Shock interviews individual investors who lost their shirts and who are in a rage because it didn't have to happen.
Michael Moore, Oliver Stone and Ridley Scott are all working on films about this latest round of greed. But "Stock Shock" is first out of the gate.
"Shocking and eye opening," says CNN Headline News TV Host Jane Velez-Mitchell of the film, "Stock Shock offers a clear and simple explanation of some of the most complex financial shenanigans in the history of the markets."
"This fraud has wiped out thousands of companies, millions of jobs and billions of investment dollars. No part of the American economy is unaffected." So says Bud Burrell, industry expert and shareholder advocate adding "You don't annihilate the companies in this economy that create new jobs without destroying the entire country."
Movie Director and select cast available for interviews.
