Pick your poison. Release news pre split and have a potentially higher post split pps to uphold, or release post split and hope to appreciate or maintain the pps. Does it really matter? Do you see an advantage one way or the other? I say release news when there is news regardless. Don't sit on it and don't make stuff up. Now, let's see if that happens. I can for now only assume no news means exactly that, good bad or indifferent.
