Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – March 10, 2017

 

 

Upcoming Events

 

As mentioned in our past few recaps, the website for The Small-Cap Conference has been updated with the Spring 2017 conference dates and is open for registrations to our events in Calgary and Vancouver.

 

Investors are encouraged to sign up at http://www.smallcapconference.ca/register to attend this year’s events in on April 10 (Calgary, AB) and May 4 (Vancouver, BC).

 

We are always looking for new investment ideas and are open to researching any promising companies discussed in this forum or presented to us via email or phone call. As always, we have a preference for those stocks which are fundamentally sound, undervalued and underfollowed.
