IMPORTANT SHAREHOLDER ALERT: The Schall Law Firm Announces the Filing of a Class Action Lawsuit Against Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. and Encourages Investors with Losses to Contact the Firm

LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / September 12, 2019 / The Schall Law Firm, a national shareholder rights litigation firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit against Sarepta Therapeutics, Inc. (“Sarepta” or “the Company”) (NASDAQ:SRPT) for violations of §§10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Investors who purchased the Company's shares between September 6, 2017 and August 19, 2019, inclusive (the ''Class Period''), are encouraged to contact the firm before October 29, 2019.

The class, in this case, has not yet been certified, and until certification occurs, you are not represented by an attorney. If you choose to take no action, you can remain an absent class member.

According to the Complaint, the Company made false and misleading statements to the market. Sarepta’s therapy golodirsen posed serious safety risks to patients. These risks made it unlikely that the FDA would approve the Company’s NDA package for accelerated approval for golodirsen. Based on these facts, the Company’s public statements were false and materially misleading throughout the class period. When the market learned the truth about Sarepta, investors suffered damages.

Join the case to recover your losses.

    Kim Jong Un May Be Hiding a Hog Apocalypse From the World

    Five wild boars were found dead in or near border areas separating the two countries this month before being tested positive for the viral hemorrhagic disease, officials in South Korea said. It also hints at a spillover of the deadly virus from North Korea, where unofficial reports indicate the disease is spreading out of control. South Korea has deployed helicopters to disinfect parts of the 250-kilometer-long border-barrier, near which more than a dozen outbreaks have occurred on farms since the virus was first reported there a month ago.

Schwab said Kallsen's position was eliminated as part of recent expense reductions that included cutting 600 jobs, or 3 percent of its workforce, as the brokerage adjusts to cost pressures, including lower interest rates.

    Pound rallies as EU's Barnier fans Brexit deal hopes

    The pound rallied Tuesday after the European Union's top Brexit negotiator flagged the possibility of a divorce deal this week, reviving hopes Britain could avoid crashing out of the bloc. With the exit deadline on October 31, Michel Barnier's comments reinforced hopes for an eventual agreement between the two sides and came after reports said a compromise was taking shape. The currency had already been rising after Britain's Daily Telegraph said a divorce agreement was forming, with EU and British negotiators hailing a positive day of talks on the Northern Ireland issue.

    OPEC, allies to maintain oil market stability beyond 2020: Barkindo

    The Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries and its allies are committed to maintaining oil market stability beyond 2020, with physical supplies relatively tight globally, OPEC Secretary-General Mohammad Barkindo said on Tuesday. OPEC, Russia and other oil producer allies, a grouping known as OPEC+, have pledged to cut production by 1.2 million barrels per day (bpd) until March 2020 to support oil prices. "I have been hearing a resounding chorus from all the players that they are determined not to allow a relapse to the downturn that we just navigated out of," Barkindo told the India Energy Forum by CERAWeek, referring to a period of low oil prices in 2014-2015 that had led OPEC to cut output.

    Exclusive: No choice but to invest in oil, Shell CEO says

    Royal Dutch Shell still sees abundant opportunity to make money from oil and gas in coming decades even as investors and governments increase pressure on energy companies over climate change, its chief executive said.     But in an interview with Reuters, Ben van Beurden expressed concern that some shareholders could abandon the world's second-largest listed energy company due partly to what he called the "demonisation" of oil and gas and "unjustified" worries that its business model was unsustainable. Shell, which supplies around 3% of the world's energy, set out in 2017 a plan to halve the intensity of its greenhouse emissions by the middle of the century, based in large part on building one of the world's biggest power businesses.

    If You Had Bought PagSeguro Digital (NYSE:PAGS) Stock A Year Ago, You Could Pocket A 65% Gain Today

    For example, the PagSeguro Digital Ltd. (NYSE:PAGS) share price is up 65% in the last year, clearly besting the market return of around 6.7% (not including dividends). While markets are a powerful pricing mechanism, share prices reflect investor sentiment, not just underlying business performance. One imperfect but simple way to consider how the market perception of a company has shifted is to compare the change in the earnings per share (EPS) with the share price movement.

    Why Trump's new trade truce with China is being hated on by Wall Street

    The president quickly hyped a potential win in China buying $40 billion to $50 billion in agricultural products from struggling U.S. farmers. “It's not a game-changer,” UBS head of equities derivatives research Stuart Kaiser tells Yahoo Finance of the preliminary trade agreement, which isn't yet signed. Kaiser thinks if anything the trade truce sets a near-term floor in the stock market — but he nonetheless expects the S&P 500 to end 2019 at 2,550.

The superhuman feat was assisted by a team of 42 other runners, representing some of the best athletes in the world. Having a troop of pacers doesn't undermine Kipchoge's achievement—the 34-year-old Kenyan smashed through a symbolic barrier that some doubted would ever be broken.
