French term or phrase: saluées le jour J..
Hi there I am working with a text and I have tried so hard to work out what the following phrase means: saluées le jour J...

Here is the phrase, which is found within a financial report:

Il est même arrivé que certaines publications de très bonne qualité soient saluées le jour J puis se soldent ensuite par une forte baisse du cours de bourse : ce fut le cas de Technicolore, qui cède 8% en juillet !

I have found out that it can mean D-day or the Big day but in this context it doesn't seem to fit :S

Any help on this would be much appreciated.

Thank you

le jour J..
on a given day

I am fairly certain this is a specifically French way of saying "on a given day"
I have translated documents, for example, that go on to mention "J+20" "J+365" etc.
