However there are no other celebrities announced as yet and this fact alone should not form the basis of any investment decision in this stock. Seek professional financial advice if considering this stock for your portfolio.
Shares in MSM more than doubled to an all-time high of 40 cents in the last two months, and a retracement to circa 30 cents over the last week appears to be attributable to broader market volatility. Consequently, this may provide a useful entry point.
However, historical share price trends are not an indication of future performances and these should not be used as the basis for an investment decision.
