NEW YORK, Oct. 11, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Pomerantz LLP is investigating claims on behalf of investors of Alphabet Inc. ("Alphabet" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: GOOG). Such investors are advised to contact Robert S. Willoughby at firstname.lastname@example.org or 888-476-6529, ext. 9980.
The investigation concerns whether Alphabet and certain of its officers and/or directors have engaged in securities fraud or other unlawful business practices.
On October 8, 2018, citing "people briefed on the incident and documents reviewed", The Wall Street Journal reported that in March 2018, Alphabet's subsidiary Google discovered a software glitch in its Google+ social network, but "opted not to disclose the issue . . . in part because of fears that doing so would draw regulatory scrutiny and cause reputational damage."
Following this news, Google's stock price fell $67.75 per share, or 5.9%, over the following two trading sessions, to close at $1,081.22 per share on October 10, 2018.
