Breyer wrote for the Court in ruling that private actions under section 10(b) of the Exchange Act fail to state a claim if they allege no more than that the price of the stock was artificially inflated when purchased. Unless the price subsequently drops as a consequence of the market reacting to disclosure of the fraud, the stock purchaser has not suffered an injury.
