The Rocky Road

Elgindy begins his career at a brokerage house called Blinder Robinson. It's a pump and dump operation... also known as a boiler room. Brokers make high-pressure sales pitches to investors, pumping up worthless stock. After the price soars, the brokers sell their shares. When the price plummets, investors who hold on suffer huge losses.

Blinder Robinson is not the most credible way to launch a career... but Tony Elgindy is hooked.
