The Complaint alleges that during the Class Period, U.S. Steel violated federal securities laws by making materially false and misleading public statements and/or failing to disclose material information about its outlook and expected financial performance. These false statements and material omissions kept the Company’s stock price trading at artificially inflated prices during the Class Period. On April 25, 2017, U.S. Steel reported a first quarter 2017 net loss of $180 million (or $1.03 per diluted share), which included an unfavorable adjustment of $35 million (or $0.20 per diluted share), associated with the loss on the shutdown of certain tubular assets. When this news was announced, U.S. Steel’s stock price dropped materially, which caused investors harm.
