50 Cent Earns Nearly $9 Mil as Stock Soars

It seems 50 Cent’s Twitter followers are willing to do more than just track what he writes on the micro-blogging site. They’re willing to actually act on his words.

After announcing that he invested in the TV Goods, which is owned by H&H Imports, the HNHI stock yesterday soared. 50, who owns 30 million shares of the company, began to tweet about his investment over the weekend, encouraging others to also become involved. According to the New York Post, 50′s involvement helped the HNHI stock jump from $0.10 per share at the market’s opening yesterday to $0.39 per share when it closed; the spike translated to an $8.7 million earning for Fif.

TV Goods owns the marketing rights to the Queens rapper’s Sleek by 50 Cent headphones, which were revealed earlier this week at CES.

Some of 50′s tweets have since been deleted. “HNHI is the stock symbol for TVG sleek by50 is one of the 15 products this year,” he said. “If you get in technically I work for you. BIG MONEY” and “Ok ok ok my friends just told me stop tweeting about HNHI so we can get all the money. Hahaha check it out its the real deal,” are no longer on his Twitter page.

Instead, less emphatic tweets that suggest 50 had been contacted by his lawyers have appeared. He wrote, “HNHI is the right investment for me it may or may not be right for u! Do ur homework,” as well as, “I own HNHI stock thoughts on it are my opinion. Talk to financial advisor about it.” —Adam Fleischer

  • Fifty Sez

    Where RWord at?

    Hahahahahahah!

    it not only makes him richer it makes the investor richer too, im gonna get in on this penny stock now. People must remember Apple and Google were once penny stocks and now Apple is at about $341/share so those who got in early made alot of money, I’ve been looking for a penny stock to get into and thinking about the whole vitamin water thing I think this is the one for me. Right now the stock is at .30 cents a share and if you invest about $100 right now if the share goes up to only $50 a share you make about 16 thousand off 100 dollars.

    OOOOOOOOOOOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!

    50 needs to really really really be careful with this. When you go around telling people you recommend that they buy a stock, you need to have that Series 6, Series 7, Or some type of investment license. Being reckless like that will definitely get the Feds on you.

    As a matter of fact, I’ll bet any amount of money that the feds made quick note of that 6 Milli and it might be a very big issue for 50 later.

    I see how 50′s advisors tried to clean up his mess with that tweet. But the damage is done and the money’s in 50′s pocket.

    50 REALLY FUCKED UP ON THIS ONE! STOCKS AREN’T A PLACE WHERE YOU RUN YOUR MOUTH. ASK MARTHA STEWART ABOUT IT.
