Barish Earned Over $400K in Commissions from Excessive Trading Strategy
The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has filed civil charges against Ross Adam Barish, a Joseph Stone Capital registered representative. The regulator contends that Barish engaged in an unsuitable in-and-out trading strategy in customers’ accounts without doing the necessary due diligence to make sure that this approach could at least deliver them minimal profits.
Instead, 16 retail investors collectively lost more than $800K while the Joseph Stone Capital broker earned more than $400K in commissions. Now, the SEC is seeking penalties, disgorgement with prejudgment interest, and injunctive relief.
