Costco Wholesale Corporation (COST)
Class Period: June 6, 2018 to October 25, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: January 7, 2019
During the class period, Costco Wholesale Corporation allegedly made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (i) Costco lacked effective internal control over financial reporting; (ii) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ statements about Costco’s business, operations, and prospects, were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis. On October 4, 2018, Costco announces that “in its upcoming fiscal 2018 Annual Report on Form 10-K, it expects to report a material weakness in internal control. The weakness relates to general information technology controls in the areas of user access and program change-management over certain information technology systems that support the Company’s financial reporting processes. The access issues relate to the extent of privileges afforded users authorized to access company systems.” Following this news, shares of Costco fell from a close of $231.68 on October 4, 2018, to a close of $218.82 the following day.

Aphria Inc. (APHA)
Class Period: July 17, 2018 to December 4, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: February 4, 2019
The complaint alleges that throughout the class period Aphria Inc. made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the Latin American assets acquired by the Company lacked adequate licenses to operate and were overvalued; (2) the acquisition of the Latin American assets would enrich the Company’s CEO and other insiders at the expense of shareholders; and (3) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects, were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

CURO Group Holdings Corp. (CURO)
Class Period: July 31, 2018 to October 24, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: February 4, 2019
The complaint alleges that throughout the class period Defendants materially misrepresented to investors the deleterious effect that the up-front loan loss provisioning in connection with a transition of its Canadian inventory to Open-Ended loans was having on the Company’s financial performance and 2018 full-year Company guidance. Because CURO’s Open-End Loans had a materially lower lending yield than the Single-Pay Products, and the portfolio of Open-End Loans was still immature and unseasoned, the up-front loan loss provisioning for these loans was far greater than publicly revealed (and the yield far lower). This caused the Company to materially overstate its 2018 projected financial results, including CURO’s adjusted EBITDA, net revenue and operating earnings.

NVIDIA Corporation (NVDA)
Class Period: August 10, 2017 to November 15, 2018
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: February 19, 2019
Throughout the Class Period, in response to analysts' questions on the Company’s ability to manage inventory in the fact of uncertain cryptocurrency markets, Defendants assured investors that they were following the cryptocurrency markets closely and could therefore adjust to possible rapid changes. Defendants then touted that the Company and its executives were “masters at managing [its] channel” and “understand the channel very well.” Moreover, NVIDIA assured investors that surging demand for GPUs among cryptocurrency miners would not have a negative impact on the Company because of a strong demand for GPUs by NVIDIA's core customer base of computer gamers. These statements were false and misleading. As a result of these misrepresentations, NVIDIA shares traded at artificially inflated prices throughout the Class Period.
