About the Lawsuit
Pilgrim's Pride and certain of its executives are charged with failing to disclose material information during the Class Period, violating federal securities laws.
On September 2, 2016, a food distributor filed an antitrust class action complaint against Pilgrim's Pride and several other poultry producers, including Tyson Foods, Inc. ("Tyson"), alleging that the defendants had conspired since 2008 to manipulate the prices of broiler chicken in violation of antitrust laws. Seven more antitrust complaints were filed between September 7 and October 7.
Then, on October 7, 2016, Pivotal Research downgraded Tyson from "Hold" to "Sell," stating that the allegations of the antitrust complaints were "powerfully convincing."
On this news, the price of Pilgrim's Pride's shares plummeted.
