New Federal Securities Cases

Opko Health, Inc.

A class action lawsuit has been filed in the United States District Court for the District of New Jersey against OPKO Health, Inc. (NASDAQ:OPK) ("OPKO" or the "Company"), on behalf of investors who acquired OPKO securities during the period from September 26, 2013 through September 7, 2018 (the "Class Period"). The lawsuit seeks to recover damages for OPKO investors under the federal securities laws.

OPKO Health is a medical test and medication company focused on diagnostics and pharmaceuticals. According to the lawsuit, OPKO and its Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, Phillip Frost, were engaged in a pump-and-dump scheme with several other individuals and companies in connection with their investments in several penny stocks.

On September 7, 2018, the SEC announced charges of a massive pump-and-dump scheme relating to several companies, including OPKO. When this news was revealed, OPKO's stock price fell from $5.59 to $4.58 per share, before trading was halted. Trading reopened one week later at $4.00 per share.

If you acquired OPKO securities during the Class Period, you may, no later than November 13, 2018, request that the court appoint you lead plaintiff of the Class. Although your ability to share in any recovery is not affected by the decision whether or not to seek appointment as a lead plaintiff, lead plaintiffs make important decisions that could affect the overall recovery for class members, including decisions concerning settlement.
