Who moved my client?

A stockbroker was cold calling about a penny stock and found a taker.

"I think this one will really move said the broker, it's only $1 a share."

"Buy me 1000 shares." said the client.

The next day the stock was at $2.

The client called the broker and said, "You were right, give me 5000 more shares.

"The next day the client looked in the paper and the stock was at $4.

The client ran to the phone and called the broker,

"Get me 10,000 more shares said the client."

"Great!" said the broker.The next day the client looked in the paper and the stock was at $9.Seeing what a great profit he had in just a few days, the client ran to the phone and told the broker,

"Sell all my shares!

"The broker said, "To whom? You were the only one buying that stock."

So they called up a family friend who worked with advertising agencies and is in a retired life as of now. He with his expertise and experience of having worked with the real life ......full time international agencies ,who were the shaolin warriers behind the success tales of many a brands, choose one agency whom he thought was better of the lot, and rang them up.
