Question: My friend recently tipped me to buy a rarely traded stock on rumors that it is entering into a big project soon. I hesitated to buy at first, but the stock jumped so fast that the share price increased sixfold from 5 cents to 28 cents in a few days. My broker told me that it may go up further next week. I feel tempted to buy some shares since the share price does not cost too much. Should I invest?—Rachel Jinayon by e-mail
