Some of Weisberg’s recommendations reportedly involved in-and-out trading and many of them allegedly used margin.
According to FINRA’s findings, “[t]he customer relied on Weisberg’s advice, accepting all of his recommendations,” and “[i]n virtually every case, the customer purchased or sold exactly the quantity of shares that Weisberg suggested.” FINRA further alleged that ‘[t]he costs of Weisberg’s trading in the customer’s account were significant and Weisberg did not track the trading costs or take them into consideration when making recommendations.“
The trading allegedly generated commissions of approximately $75,638 for Weisberg while the customer reportedly lost approximately $55,627, according to FINRA. Further, the findings also alleged that “Weisberg used discretion to initiate stock trades in customers’ accounts without written authorization and his member firm never accepted their accounts for discretionary trading.”
