Background on the K12 Securities Class Litigation K12, based in Herndon, Virginia, is a technology-based education company engaged in the operation and expansion of virtual schools for students in kindergarten through 12th grade. The action alleges that defendants violated sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 by issuing materially misleading statements and omitting material information about the Company regarding its student enrollment and revenue growth prospects for fiscal 2014, as well as its compliance with state regulations governing enrollment. During the Class Period, K12 publicly endorsed analysts’ fiscal 2014 financial guidance for the Company and assured investors that K12 was “on track to have one of the best business development years” in its history, which was supposed to “drive even higher growth for fiscal 2014” than in fiscal 2013. Defendants also allegedly falsely touted K12’s “serious” attention to regulatory compliance.
Investors considering a purchase of K12 Inc stock, but cautious about paying the going market price of $10.64/share, might benefit from considering selling puts among the alternative strategies at their disposal. One interesting put contract in particular, is the June put at the $7.50 strike, which has a bid at the time of this writing of 25 cents.
