The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the District of Massachusetts on behalf of all those who purchased Wayfair common stock between August 2, 2018 and October 31, 2018 (the “Class Period”). The case, Goodstein v. Wayfair Inc. et al., No. 19-cv-10062 was filed on January 10, 2019, and has been assigned to Judge Douglas P. Woodlock.
The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose: (1) that Wayfair had been experiencing significantly diminished demand for its online product offerings and had significantly increased advertising spending to grow sales; (2) that Wayfair, which was already more than one-third of the way into its third-quarter 2018 when its announced its second-quarter 2018 results on August 2, 2018, had already dramatically increased advertising spending for its third-quarter 2018; and (3) as a result, Defendants’ statements about Wayfair’s business, operations and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.
Specifically, on November 1, 2018, before the open of trading, Wayfair issued a press release announcing its third-quarter 2018 financial results, revealing that it had suffered massive net losses for the quarter and predicting further losses in the fourth-quarter of 2018.
On this news, the Company’s stock price fell from $110.29 per share on October 31, 2018 to $96.16 per share on November 1, 2018—a $14.13 or 12.81% drop.
