Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – March 17, 2017
We’ve sent out our first invitation to the Calgary Small-Cap Conference which is going to be held on April 10 at the Coast Plaza Hotel & Conference Centre. As many of you know, our focus is on quality, small-cap Canadian listed stocks and we expect to have another solid lineup for our attendees on April 10. It’ll be well worth coming out for all of our regulars and if you’ve never been to a Small-Cap Conference before, this could be a great opportunity to come see some quality presentations and meet the management teams in person.
Investors are encouraged to sign up at http://www.smallcapconference.ca/register to attend.
The Vancouver conference will follow on May 4, 2017.
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.

The small-cap markets bounced back this week due in part to an increase in the price of gold, which strengthened after the US announced an interest rate increase this week. The S&P TSX Venture Composite Index gained 11.42 points on the week, closing on Friday at 810.61. Canada’s S&P TSX Composite index was off this week by a total of 16.19 points to close on Friday at 15,490.49 points. In the United States, the Dow Jones Industrial Average took losses on four out of the five trading days this past week; however, an overall weekly gain was still achieved.
