Financial Markets and Funds partner Susan Light spoke with The Wall Street Journal regarding potential enforcement actions against any registered representative who was involved with recent run up in touting and buying stocks such as GameStop on social media. A registered representative would be subject to Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) regulations, which includes communication with the public on social media that could be misleading. Sue noted that using a pseudonym would not absolve a broker of regulatory obligations. She stated, "An average Joe can go on a website and say, 'I like XYZ stock.' A broker can't do that. It would make sense for FINRA to be interested in looking at this." ("GameStop Trader 'Roaring Kitty' and Former Employer May Face Federal Regulatory Scrutiny," February 5, 2021)
