The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission suspended trading Friday of Cynk Technology Corp., a mysterious social network operator whose stock price skyrocketed, despite having no members, no revenue, and no assets. The SEC ordered the stoppage because of concerns regarding the accuracy and adequacy of information in the marketplace and potentially manipulative transactions in Cynks common stock.
