50 Cent Encourages Twitter Followers to Buy His Stock
While some celebrities use Twitter to shoot the breeze in 140-characters or less, 50 Cent has tweeted his way to a quick $8 million pay day in just 24-hours. 50 who was in Las Vegas over the weekend promoting his new line of Sleek by 50 headphones, took to his Twitter page to urge his followers to purchase stock in H&H Imports, the parent company to his latest investment, TVGoods. "You can double your money right now. Just get what you can afford," he encouraged his more than 3 million followers.
H&H's stock quickly jumped from 29 cents to 39 cents Monday (Dec. 10) adding an $8.7 million bump to 50's shares in the company. Although his advertising skills are clearly profitable, 50 made sure to remind his followers to weigh all of the options before making any final decisions. "[H & H Imports] is the right investment for me it may or may not be right for u! Do ur homework."
The 35-year-old has yet to release new music, and has since scrapped his 'Black Magic' album, but 50 continues to bring in the bucks in other ways. Aside from his partnership with TVGoods, which sells goods to consumers via HGC and QVC, the G-Unit frontman also made a quick profit shoveling snow out of his neighbor's driveways near his Connecticut mansion. There's no telling what his next big business venture will be, but everything he's touching these days continues to turn to gold.
