United States Oil Fund, LP (USO)

USO Class Action & Lead Plaintiff Deadline: August 18, 2020

Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC notifies investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against United States Oil Fund, LP

 ("USO” or "the Company") (NYSE: USO) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased or otherwise acquired USO securities between March 19, 2020 and April 28, 2020, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). 

 

This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

 

The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose material adverse information. Specifically, the complaint alleges that: (1) USO would achieve its investment objective by investing substantially all of its portfolio assets in the near month WTI futures contract; (2) unbeknownst to investors, extraordinary market conditions in early 2020 made USO’s purported investment objective and strategy unfeasible; (3) as excess oil supply increased and oil prices plummeted, the facilities available for storage in Cushing approached capacity, causing a “super contango” in which the futures prices for oil substantially exceeded the spot price; (4) instead of revealing the known impacts and risks to the Fund, USO held an offering of billions of dollars of USO shares in March 2020; and (5) as a result USO suffered billions of dollars in losses and was forced to abandon its investment strategy.

A class action lawsuit has already been filed. You can review a copy of the Complaint and sign the certification form or you may contact Peretz Bronstein, Esq. or his Investor Relations Analyst, Yael Hurwitz of Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC at 212-697-6484.
