Broker’s strategy a toxic mix including LINN Energy – claim alleges


Ft. Lauderdale, Fl. – Another investor seeking recovery from substantial losses in LinnCo LLC and other Wells Fargo Advisors broker recommendations, has turned to the Mark A. Tepper law firm (www.marktepper.com), to file a claim for damages.

Wells Fargo Advisors is facing a claim for damages from an Arizona retiree for recommending the purchase, on margin, of LinnCo,(OTC markets: LNCOQ) Kinder Morgan Inc., (NYSE: KMI) Williams Companies Inc. (NYSE: WMB) and Potash of Saskachewan, Corp. (NYSE: POT).

The claim, filed with FINRA by the law firm of Mark A. Tepper, P.A., alleges that the broker’s recommended strategy, was to purchase high risk and leveraged commodity based securities, on margin.

“This unsuitable strategy was a toxic mix of vulnerability to volatile commodity prices, margin, and high debt. Respondent’s recommended strategy was speculative in nature, exposing [the retiree] to substantial losses, establishing its unsuitability,” the claim alleges.

The Mark A. Tepper securities law firm recently announced that it is investigating alleged claims against brokerage firms for recommending LINN Energy LLC, LinnCo LLC, and/or BreitBurn Energy Partners LP.
