A tax loss environment at the end of the year is strange.
Assuming you were a director of RPG and you had good news to release.
When would you release it?
IMHO, I would try to release after the tax loss damage had been done and the stock would go up from there.
In the USA the last tax loss day is the last business day of the year, December 28.
Would that be a good day?
However, in Canada, the last tax loss day is about a week earlier.
That would be another good day.
IMHO. Perhaps the news release may simply be waiting for the optimum moment.
