LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Glancy Prongay & Murray LLP (“GPM”) is investigating potential claims on behalf of investors of Citizens, Inc. (“Citizens” or the “Company”) (NYSE: CIA) concerning the Company’s and its officers’ possible violations of federal securities laws.
On March 8, 2017, Seeking Alpha published an article alleging that Citizens sells insurance policies through a network of brokers who prey on foreign families and retirees with promises of “guaranteed returns” backed by U.S. Treasuries. According to the article, Citizens was using a portion of the premiums paid by policyholders to make open market purchases of Citizens stock—artificially propping up the Company’s stock price. On this news, shares of Citizens fell nearly 4% on March 8, 2017.
