Stoltmann Law Offices is investigating Mark Beloyan, who recently had a complaint filed against him and his firm, TradeSpot Markets, by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). Beloyan was the President, Chief Operating Officer, Chief Compliance Officer and owner of TradeSpots. FINRA alleged that Beloyan and another financial advisor at the firm recommended penny stocks to customers without affirming suitability. This misconduct occurred while he and the advisor were trading shares of Mondial Ventures Inc. and STW Resources Holding Corp. Allegedly, Beloyan often entered information on customer suitability forms after the customer had signed it. For these transgressions, TradeSpot agreed to pay a $10,000 fine and will not solicit or recommend the purchase of penny stock for one year. Beloyan was suspended from the securities industry in all capacities for 10 days with an additional 50 days in a principal capacity. Penny stocks are those stocks which are typically exchanged at a relatively low price, and, therefore, highly speculative and high risk because of their lack of liquidity. They are not suitable for all investors.
Beloyan was registered with Rutherford, Brown & Catherwood from February 1986 until October 1988, Escalator Securities from November 1988 until May 1990, Sunpoint Securities in Longview, Texas from May 1990 until January 1992 and Corporate Securities Group in St. Louis from January 1992 until March 1992. He is currently registered with TradeSpot in Davie, Florida, and has been since March 1992, according to his online, public FINRA BrokerCheck report.
