Weekend Poll. The next Ping Luo is?

[Update – Poll is now closed – Editor]


Every scandal plagued company has a supporting cast. Sometimes, like at Subaye (SBAY), it is the denizens of the Yahoo message boards, like this gentleman. Other times, at firms like China Agritech (CAGC), it is naive buy-side investors like young environmentalist Jesse Glickenhaus. At some, such as China Media Express (CCME) it is a chorus of sycophantic sell-side analysts best exemplified by Global Hunter‘s former star Ping Luo.

And so, the question asked in this weekend’s poll is who is the next Ping Luo? Who has blindly defended a company in the face of all evidence, potentially destroying their careers in the process.
