Weekly Recap - March 31, 2017 (March 31st 2017) - March 31st 2017



Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – March 31, 2017

 

 

Upcoming Events

 

Coming up in just over a month, we’ll be hosting the next Small-Cap Conference in Vancouver on May 4. As we firm up the schedule, more details will be posted online at www.smallcapconference.ca.

 

Registration is open and any investors who are interested in discovering quality, underfollowed small-cap stocks are encouraged to attend. Sign up for free at http://www.smallcapconference.ca/register.

 

Unfortunately, due to some circumstances out of our control, the Calgary Conference has been cancelled that was originally scheduled for April 10.

 

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.
