Yeah he really should shut up unless there is something imminent. By establishing a time frame that no stock moving event can possibly happen until x, y, and z happen some months from now, he is just giving the green light to the shorts to do one more cycle of down manipulation of the same sort they have done for years.
It's rather like the effect of concealed carry laws. Total gun ban emboldens criminals as they are the only ones who have guns. Open carry is not much better, because then criminals can avoid those who would give them trouble; but concealed carry, that is the best. Criminals never know who might be in the area and ready to mete out some law and order. Similarly, it is best for shorts to think something big could happen any day. Chris has removed that possibility for several months.
