Billionaire sells $302M of CHS stock

Chinese investor Tianqiao Chen and his group of companies have a 9.2 percent stake in Franklin, Tenn.-based Community Health Systems after recently selling more than 3.5 million shares of the company, according to a Jan. 20 Securities and Exchange Commission filing

Mr. Chen and his Shanda Group company affiliates sold 3.56 million shares of CHS on Jan. 15 for $8.51 per share, bringing in a total of $302.7 million. The move comes after he sold more than 13 million shares of CHS between Nov. 10 and Dec. 14. Those sales brought in more than $109 million. 

Mr. Chen, a pioneer in China's online gaming industry, began buying up shares of CHS in 2016. The last public comment the investor made about CHS was in 2018, when Shanda Group said it had a "good relationship" with CHS and supported the company's strategy and management team.
