stuckholder
n. A person or company that owns stock they can't sell.

Example Citation:
"Its stock price had recently climbed from pennies to more than $30, even though the company was nearly three years behind in its SEC filings. Too bad more investors didn't heed those warnings, for on June 11 the SEC abruptly suspended trading of Net Command's shares, leaving thousands of gullible 'stuckholders' holding the bag at $15."
