Merger was bankers idea and now they're giving it to the shareholders. As most shares are held by the institutions they are screwing the little guy big time until we see some blood - hopefully we're close to that part. When they decide to move this thing up they will, and then everyone will hear what a great deal the merger was.
Personally I didn't have a problem with the merger but I do have a problem with the amount they paid for it. GG will be a dog for a while yet, until funds squeeze more out of the general investor or POG is allowed to move north of 700 soon. Until then keep selling calls to make some extra cash.
