I bought a couple hundred shares of FTFY - Fit after Fifty, and watched the stock go up. Reading articles on TMF and other places that said to just stay away from penny stocks I sold for a tidy profit. Guess when I sold. Less than an hour before the bottom dropped out!

Why did you buy the stock in the first place?

Based on the pattern of stock prices you describe, it sounds like you were involved in a pump-and-dump scam.
