if one sold the stock the day of the AGM November 28 or the next day for tax loss reasons, you could actually buy it back this year on December 31st if i am not mistaken...30 days has elasped....Patrick Bultema said news on signed contracts before end of calendar year.. ..why use the word calendar..(hmm)..seems to suggest just before the end of the year ..how about news friday dec 28th after the close......be a great way to start the new year...those who sold would buy back in a hurry...just saying
