SEC Investor Alert: Celebrity Endorsements

The SEC’s Office of Investor Education and Advocacy is warning investors not to make investment decisions based solely on celebrity endorsements.

According to the warning, it is never a good idea to make an investment decision just because someone famous says a product or service is a good investment.

Moreover, never make an investment decision based solely on a celebrity endorsement, or other information you receive through social media, investment newsletters, online advertisements, email, investment research websites, internet chat rooms, direct mail, newspapers, magazines, television, or radio.
