Of course the D on the AVXLD will only be there for a total of twenty days, this following the reverse split. There is a huge buzz right now for Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (OTCQB: AVXL - aka - AVXLD).
We all know that reverse splits are supposed to be the worst thing a stock can do.
Guess what? SO FAR... AVXL has shown us otherwise! This is RARE!

The News of the Reverse Split:
Anavex Prepares for Uplisting to NASDAQ, Announces Reverse Stock Split
Oct 06, 2015
OTC Disclosure & News Service
NEW YORK, Oct. 06, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Anavex Life Sciences Corp. (“Anavex” or the “Company”) (OTCQX:AVXL), a clinical-stage biopharmaceutical company developing drug candidates to treat Alzheimer’s disease, other central nervous system (CNS) diseases, pain, and various types of cancer, today announced that it is finalizing an application to uplist trading of its common stock to the NASDAQ Capital Market. To meet the conditions of a NASDAQ listing, the Company announces a one-for-four (1-for-4) reverse stock split of its authorized, issued and outstanding common shares. The Company's common stock will begin trading on a post-split basis at the opening of trading on October 7, 2015.
“It is our belief that uplisting to a major exchange will allow a broader base of worldwide institutions, funds and retail investors to participate in our future success,” said Christopher U. Missling, PhD, President and Chief Executive Officer of Anavex. “This reverse stock split will help us meet the conditions to finalize our application for uplisting to NASDAQ.”
Following the reverse stock split, every four shares of issued and outstanding common stock will be converted to one post-reverse split share. All fractional shares will be rounded up to the nearest whole share.
The reverse stock split will reduce the authorized shares of common stock from 400,000,000 prior to the split to 100,000,000 after the reverse stock split.
As of October 7, Anavex common stock will trade under the ticker symbol AVXLD for a period of 20 business days. After that time or earlier once NASDAQ approves the uplisting requirements, the “D” will be removed and our Company's symbol will once again be AVXL. A new CUSIP number will be assigned to the Company's common stock as a result of the reverse split.
Shareholders should direct any questions concerning the reverse split to their bank or broker or the Company's transfer agent, Nevada Agency and Trust at +1 (775) 322-0626.
