NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Attorney Advertising -- Bronstein, Gewirtz & Grossman, LLC reminds investors that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Tyson Foods, Inc. ("Tyson" or the "Company") (NYSE: TSN) and certain of its officers, on behalf of shareholders who purchased Tyson securities from November 23, 2015 and October 7, 2016, inclusive (the "Class Period").
This class action seeks to recover damages against Defendants for alleged violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the "Exchange Act").
The complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, defendants issued false and misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that Tyson Foods had devised to manipulate chicken prices and as a result, defendants' statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times. On September 2, 2016, news sources reported the filing of an antitrust lawsuit against Tyson Foods claiming that it conspired to change the price of broiler-chickens. On October 7, 2016, Pivotal Research downgraded Tyson from "buy" to "sell," noting apprehensions about a "powerfully convincing" class action against Tyson 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 and several other companies conspired by sharing proprietary data and reducing production to support prices. Following this news, Tyson stock has dropped as much as $8.53, or 11.47%, to $65.85 during intraday trading on October 7, 2016.
