FirstEnergy Corp. (NYSE:FE)
CONTACT JAKUBOWITZ ABOUT FE:
Class Period: February 21, 2017 - July 21, 2020
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: September 28, 2020
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) the legislative "solutions" that defendants claimed would resolve problems with the Company's nuclear facilities were centered on an illicit campaign to corrupt high-profile state legislators and thus secure legislation favoring the FirstEnergy; (2) over roughly three years, FirstEnergy and its affiliates funneled more than $60 million to prominent state politicians and lobbyists, including Ohio Speaker Larry Householder, in order to secure the passage of Ohio House Bill 6, which provided a $1.3 billion ratepayer-funded bailout to keep the Company's failing nuclear facilities in operation; (3) defendants falsely represented that they were complying with state and federal laws and regulations regarding regulatory matters throughout the Class Period, exposing the Company and its investors to the extreme risks of reputational, legal, and financial harm; (4) as a result of defendants' false statements and omissions, FirstEnergy insiders were able to sell more than $17 million worth of their FirstEnergy shares at artificially inflated prices.
Proshares Ultra Bloomberg Crude Oil (NYSE:UCO)
CONTACT JAKUBOWITZ ABOUT UCO:
Class Period: March 6, 2020 - April 27, 2020
Lead Plaintiff Deadline: September 28, 2020
The filed complaint alleges that defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) decreased demand for oil due to the coronavirus pandemic and increased oil supply and diminished oil prices caused by the Russia/Saudi oil price war had caused extraordinary market volatility; (2) a massive influx of investor capital into the Fund, totaling hundreds of millions of dollars, in a matter of days had increased Fund inefficiencies, heightened illiquidity in the West Texas Intermediate ("WTI") futures contract markets in which the Fund invested, and caused the Fund to approach positional and regulatory limits (adverse trends exacerbated by the Offering itself); (3) there was a sharp divergence between spot and future prices in the WTI oil markets, leading to a super contango market dynamic as oil storage space in Cushing, Oklahoma dwindled and was insufficient to account for the excess supply expected to be delivered pursuant to the WTI May 2020 futures contract. As a result, UCO could not continue to pursue the passive investment strategy represented in the Registration Statement, causing its results to significantly deviate from its purported benchmark.
Jakubowitz Law is vigorous in pursuit of justice for shareholders who have been the victim of securities fraud. Attorney advertising. Prior results do not guarantee similar outcomes.
