ProShares UltraShort Oil and Gas Fund (Symbol: DUG) Class Action Filed by Bernstein Liebhard LLP





NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 09/30/09 -- Bernstein Liebhard LLP filed a class action lawsuit on September 30, 2009 in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, on behalf of all persons who purchased or otherwise acquired shares in the UltraShort Oil and Gas fund (the "DUG Fund") (NYSE: DUG), an exchange-traded fund ("ETF") offered by ProShares Trust ("ProShares"), pursuant or traceable to ProShares' false and misleading Registration Statement, Prospectuses, and Statements of Additional Information (collectively, the "Registration Statement") issued in connection with shares of the DUG Fund (the "Class"). The Class is seeking to pursue remedies under Sections 11 and 15 of the Securities Act of 1933 (the "Securities Act").





The complaint names ProShares, ProShare Advisors LLC, SEI Investments Distribution Co., Michael L. Sapir, Louis M. Mayberg, Russell S. Reynolds, III, Michael Wachs, and Simon D. Collier, as defendants (collectively, "Defendants"). ProShares sells its Ultra and UltraShort ETFs as "simple" directional plays. As marketed by ProShares, Ultra ETFs are designed to go up when markets go up; UltraShort ETFs are designed to go up when markets go down. The DUG Fund is one of ProShares' UltraShort ETFs. The DUG Fund seeks investment results that correspond to twice the inverse (-200%) daily performance of the Dow Jones U.S. Oil and Gas Index ("DJOGI").

Accordingly, the DUG Fund is supposed to deliver double the inverse return of the DJOGI, which fell approximately 37 percent from January 2, 2008 through December 31, 2008, ostensibly creating a profit for investors who anticipated a decline in the U.S. Oil and Gas market. In other words, the DUG Fund should have appreciated by over 74 percent during this period.

However, the DUG Fund fell approximately 30 percent during this period.




The complaint alleges the Defendants violated the Securities Act by failing to disclose the following risks, inter alia, in the Registration Statement: (1) if DUG Fund shares were held for a time period longer than one day, the likelihood of catastrophic losses was huge; and (2) the extent to which performance of the DUG Fund would inevitably diverge from the performance of the DJOGI -- i.e., the overwhelming probability, if not certainty, of spectacular divergence.




Plaintiff in the DUG Action seeks to recover damages on behalf of all Class members who purchased or otherwise acquired shares of ProShares DUG. If you purchased or otherwise acquired ProShares DUG shares, and either lost money on the transaction or still hold the shares, you may wish to join in the action to serve as lead plaintiff. In order to do so, you must meet certain requirements set forth in the applicable law and file appropriate papers no later than November 23, 2009.




A "lead plaintiff" is a representative party that acts on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation. In order to be appointed lead plaintiff, the court must determine that the class member's claim is typical of the claims of other class members, and that the class member will adequately represent the class. Under certain circumstances, one or more class members may together serve as lead plaintiff. Your ability to share in any recovery is not, however, affected by the decision whether or not to serve as a lead plaintiff. You may retain Bernstein Liebhard LLP, or other counsel of your choice, to serve as your counsel in this action.




If you purchased or otherwise acquired shares in the DUG Fund or any ProShares leveraged funds, and either lost money on the transaction or still hold the shares, please contact Christian Siebott or Joseph R.

Seidman, Jr. at (877) 779-1414.




Bernstein Liebhard has pursued hundreds of securities and consumer cases and recovered approximately $2 billion for its clients. It has been named to The National Law Journal's "Plaintiffs' Hot List" in each of the last six years.




Bernstein Liebhard has also filed cases concerning the SRS and SKF funds.

Because of the math and administrative methodology, I don't know if this should be used by anyone other than a day trader or by option players to capture risk. Underlying energy stocks in its portfolio index are nowhere near all time highs. Yet, this has come down from 70's to 15 area over the past year. Not a good way to play energy IMO. That's typical though of the short and leveraged ETF's.

I agree, we might be on top of a small bubble.

My energy ETF (and ETN) play now revolves around, DXO(largest $$ wise) DIG/DUG, and a smaller amount of ERY for arbitrage with DXO in the Roth accounts. DXO, DIG and DUG have nice liquidity, with ERX and ERY still lagging in the 2mil range daily.

Overall I'm heavier in the bullish stocks, but traded lots of shares in all of them. DXO, I'm on free shares, and have added 10% to them in the past 2 days. We will see if this week if I can sell off some ERY and DUG for greater than 10% :) I tend to sell 10% moves north, DXO, DIG, and ERX have been SCREAMING, and I think they will cycle.

I waiting to see if the DJIA can bounce out of the 8-9000 channel, if so Oil might leap ahead more, but I'm thinking we will see more volatility this month due to the Obama factor. Jan. could turn out to be a good traders month as I will trade to more free shares of all my Oil stocks.

DIG and DUG rock!!!!!!!!!!!, I'm ready for some DUG action in the coming days.

Oil in a Week (Decision to Cut Output & OPEC)

Walid Khadduri
Al-Hayat - 27/10/08/

http://english.daralhayat.com/business/10-2008/Article-20081027-3e34c4c8-c0a8-10ed-011c-4d165d73bb57/story.html


The decision to reschedule OPEC's extraordinary ministerial meeting from November 18 to October 24 was the toughest for the organization these days. The date signaled for markets that OPEC does not believe there is an urgent need that justifies holding an immediate extraordinary meeting at a time when prices are falling on a daily basis.

The extraordinary meeting was held just days before the American presidential elections and in concurrence with a major financial crisis hitting American and international markets. This places OPEC's decision under the microscope and presents it as an opportunity for politicians and pundits in industrial nations who wish to talk about the lack of cooperation on the side of oil-producing nations with the difficult resolutions made by industrial countries to stabilize the financial system. Criticism of OPEC is likely to increase as a result of the decision by the ministerial meeting to cut output, especially at this phase when industrial nations consider falling oil prices to be the only positive indicator of possible global economic stability following the US subprime mortgage crisis and the ensuing massive losses.

What exactly does OPEC's decision to cut output mean?
OPEC has long adopted a policy of balancing demand and supply in international oil markets. Since a significant drop has been noted in demand over the past few months, the organization wanted to ensure the equilibrium by cutting supply in a manner that corresponds with the decline in demand. The problem is that there is a variation in the figures and forecasts about the decline in demand published by the International Energy Agency and OPEC. In fact, the published numbers vary from one country to another within OPEC itself.

Naturally, there are those who point to the rapid decline of prices since August. Just as the price increase in the first half of 2008 was rapid and spectacular, so seems to be the case of decline now. If this means anything, it implies that the oil pricing system decided in free markets in New York and London on the basis of future prices of oil while severely lacking transparency as a result of speculations and monopolies, requires numerous reforms and control systems like the rest of the international money system or else there will be no end for this vicious cycle of rapidly rising prices followed by a rapid bust.
Some of the tough questions discussed by the ministerial meeting were: how deep should be the output cut? What is the objective of the cut? Is it to balance demand and supply, to cut falling prices, to attempt to stabilize prices within the range of $70 to $90, or returning them to $100 and above as demanded by Iran and Venezuela, even if such a proposal enjoyed no support from any other states?

It is noted that there exists an oil cycle of approximately ten years for the meltdown of prices in the recent past, even when causes varied in each case. The collapse of prices in 1986 was caused by the increasing supply from outside OPEC whereas the second collapse in 1998 was caused by the Asian economic crisis and the decline in demand there at a time when OPEC increased output (the Jakarta resolution of 1997). The current price meltdown, on the other hand, is caused by the decline in demand as a result of the rapid and massive increase in prices during the first two half of the year in addition to the declining demand as a result of the global financial crisis and the lack of confidence in the proposed economic solutions.

The question here is: how does OPEC evaluate the current global economic crisis. Should it focus on its ability to inject trillions of dollars to stop the global financial meltdown, especially as it appears that the upward and downward fluctuations in the markets over the past few days seem to fall within treatable levels, or should it consider this a historic meltdown and deal with it accordingly?

The problem facing OPEC right now lies in the fact that two basic factors are pushing prices downwards: the first is the consumer response to cut demand as a result of high prices in recent months; the second is the declining rates of oil spending and consumption as a result of the global financial crisis. These factors require that OPEC cut supplies to establish balance between demand and supply, but doubts lurk about the ability of the organization to end the trend of falling prices with a single resolution in such a gloomy economic environment.

There is always a move to the downside, as big or larger than the move to the upside. Anal-Lists now saying $50 oil, the Goldman guys no longer at $200, at least in our life time.

Today's price must have been already priced in from last week as oil is up 5+ and dug is up. Dig is up, but only marginally.

I think everbody is on edge about which way we are headed, longer term.

Take Care.

No Frenchee, I was in.

I had my shares while Oil dropped from around $133.00 to $101.00. I don't really have a clue as to where the price of oil is going in the next few months. How about you?

May see a panic to the downside in oil prices. Too many bulls have been buying this pull back and for now most of the news should be bearish for oil. Still looking for DUG to move to Jan 08 highs of 50+.
