The term "pump and dump" has been circulating in recent weeks following volatile stock action in the cannabis sector.
By definition, pump-and-dump is an illegal scheme to boost the price of a stock through illegal or misleading statements.
In the video above from TheStreet Live last week, Jim Cramer says Sundial Growers (SNDL) - Get Report is an example of how to spot a pump and dump stock. Cramer urges the federal government to look closely at Sundial and other names and take action to protect retail investors.
Sundial was down upwards of 10% in early trading Friday.
