NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC is investigating potential claims on behalf of purchasers of the securities of Pilgrim's Pride Corporation ("Pilgrim's Pride" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: PPC). Such investors are advised to contact Peretz Bronstein or his investor relations analyst Yael Hurwitz at email@example.com or 212-697-6484.
The investigation concerns whether Pilgrim's Pride and certain of its officers and/or directors have violated Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.
On October 7, 2016, Pivotal Research downgraded the Company's peer, Tyson Foods, Inc. ("Tyson") from "buy" to "sell," noting apprehensions about a "powerfully convincing" class action against Tyson, Pilgrim's Pride, and some of its industry peers as defendants, alleging price collusion in the broiler-chicken market. The complaint alleges that at the beginning of 2008, Tyson, Pilgrim's Pride, and several other companies conspired by sharing proprietary data and reducing production to support prices. Following this news, Pilgrim's Pride stock has dropped as much as $1.29 per share, or 6.11%, to $19.82 during intraday trading on October 7, 2016.
