From the tenor of the exchanges between the Secretary of State for Cultures and the Ministers, the approval of the Victory excavation will take place following the blessing of the modified Management Plan which should take place quite soon. Congratulations to those who have weathered this ugly short assault. As the news is announced, a huge short squeeze will develop, so would suggest all longs hold their positions until this is well underway.
I don't want to be a wet blanket, but don't get your hopes up that the review of the modified Management Plan is going to be done any faster than the original plan. Alas, that is just how bureaucracies work!
This could be a classic "buy the rumor sell the news" scenario for OMEX (which is not uncommon at all for this stock.) The thing that could make the stock run post announcement would be if the deal is more lucartive than expected without curtailing the upside too much.
