If FINRA is supposed to protect investors, why did its actions hurt 65,000 of them?

We're going to do more, until the investors of MMTLP get the full accounting they have earned.”
— Dennis Kneale

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, February 12, 2024 /EINPresswire.com/ -- The "What's Bugging Me" Podcast on @Ricochet and @ApplePodcasts, for more than a month now, has been reporting on the plight and the pushback of 65,000 investors in a tiny energy stock now infamously known as MMTLP.

Regulators issued a rare, surprise halt in all trading of the stock in December 2022, all but wiping out the investment of the investors, including several thousand military veterans and current soldiers.

Some 3,000 of them have organized on the X platform as the #MMTLPARMY. They have mounted a fierce campaign demanding answers from FINRA (Financial Industry Regulatory Authority) and the SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission).

In tracking what went wrong and supporting the investors' demand for answers, "What's Bugging Me" host Dennis Kneale has interviewed more than a dozen investors, a former CEO at the company where this saga began, a lawyer on the case, and several leaders of the MMTLP Army, as well as poring over hundreds of tweets and dozens of pages of FAQs and responses put out by FINRA and the SEC.

Here is a list of the topics, guests, and related links to the five episodes of "What's Bugging Me" which have focused on the #MMTLPFIASCO. "We're going to do more," Kneale says, "until the investors of MMTLP get the full accounting they have earned."
