Centene Corp. (CNC)



Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Centene Corp. To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline

Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Centene Corp. (“Centene” or the “Company”) (NYSE:CNC) of the January 13, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.

The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Central District of California on behalf of all those who purchased Centene stock or options between April 26, 2016 and September 6, 2016 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Sanchez v. Centene Corp. et al, No. 16-cv-08469 was filed on November 14, 2016.

The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by failing to disclose negative developments in Health Net, Inc. following its acquisition by Centene on March 24, 2016.

Specifically, on July 26, 2016, Centene announced that it was reserving approximately $300 million for losses associated with Health Net’s insurance plan for medical claims associated with disputed costs for substance abuse treatment centers.

After the announcement, Centene’s share price fell from $75.26  per share on July 25, 2016 to a closing price of $68.87 on July 26, 2016—a $6.39 or a 8.5% drop.

Then, on September 6, 2016, Leerink Partners, LLC issued a report downgrading Centene stock due to underperformance of the Health Net legacy insurance programs, including Health Net’s California substance abuse programs.

After the announcement, Centene’s share price fell from $68.62 per share on September 5, 2016 to a closing price of $65.30 on September 6, 2016—a $3.32 or a 4.8% drop.
