Investor Allegations 

On April 30, 2024, an investor alleged that Mitchell Pindus concentrated speculative investment recommendations without adequately disclosing the associated risks. The investor is seeking $200,000. 

Unsuitable Investments 

FINRA Rule 2111 requires brokers to evaluate whether an investment fits their investor’s financial goals.

Some common violations of this rule include:

  • Recommendations of unsuitable investment strategies. For instance, overconcentration of securities in a certain stock or sector is typically unsuitable due to the degree of risk.
  • Recommendations of high-risk or illiquid investments. These investments may lead to high fees for the investor.

Investors who rely on brokers for recommendations may be able to recover their losses by pursuing FINRA arbitration.
