Bieber’s Portfolio

Bieber Investment Strat: Someone must be slacking off on their advisory duties because Justin Bieber has just become part-owner of Options Media Group Holdings (OPMG), a sketchy tech company that is run out of Boca Raton, a locale more known for spammers than candidates to become the next Google. OPMG distributes an anti-texting software called PhoneGuard, which is meant to stop driving and texting, a cause that is apparently very close to Bieber’s heart. I guess Bieber isn’t worried about the fact that in May, the former president of OPMG, Anthony Sasso, resigned because a local blog revealed he had been convicted of racketeering; or that the current CEO of OPMG, Scott Frohman, is on the board of Money4Gold; or that the company reported $10 million in losses last year. Yup, sounds like a sound investment to me. Gawker
