Not the most conventional way to trade stock market advice, but dolling it out on Twitter sure worked out for 50 Cent.

According to the New York Post,¬†shares of H&H Imports dramatically increased in value thanks to the rapper and actor’s endorsement tweets. The penny stock reportedly jumped 290% over the weekend.

The Post writes that H&H Imports is “a money-losing venture out of Clearwater, Fla., that owns TV Goods, a marketing firm recently founded by Kevin Harrington.”

Tweeting that he’d “just invested” in the company, 50 encouraged others to follow suit–a move that has so far scored him a hefty $8.7 million. (And stocks aren’t the only thing Fiddy is known for endorsing)

Not bad for one weekend and a few tweets. (via New York Post)
