On July 9, 2023, the Wall Street Journal reported that over 2,000 lead-covered cables used by various telecommunication companies were degrading and leaching into soil and groundwater, posing a significant public health risk. On this news, Lumen’s stock price fell $0.13, or 5.9%, to close at $2.06 per share on July 10, 2023, thereby injuring investors.
Then, on July 11, 2023, the Wall Street Journal published another article reporting that “[l]awmakers are demanding that telecom firms act to ensure that Americans are safe after [an] investigation revealed that phone companies have left behind a network of cables covered in toxic lead, tainting water and soil in some locations.” Another article was published the following day detailing Lumen’s ownership of lead-covered cables previously owned by Ma Bell, as well as evidence suggesting that Lumen’s workers still face exposure to lead. On this news, Lumen’s stock price fell $0.03, or 1.5%, to close at $2.04 per share on July 12, 2023.
Then, on July 14, 2023, in a report published by Seeking Alpha, a J.P. Morgan analyst stated that Lumen likely has “exposure to potential copper [cable] lead sheathing liability.” On this news, Lumen’s stock price fell $0.21, or 10.2%, to close at $1.85 per share on July 14, 2023.
Also on July 14, 2023, after the market closed, the Wall Street Journal published an article regarding Lumen’s exposure to liabilities related to its lead-sheathed cables, stating that, after AT&T, Verizon and Lumen would have the most lead-covered cables to remove. On this news, Lumen’s stock price fell $0.15, or 8.1%, to close at $1.70 per share on July 17, 2023, thereby injuring investors further.
