Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – August 11, 2017
We've initiated some inquiries with our Calgary conference facility regarding some Fall 2017 date options for a Small-Cap Conference in Calgary this year. We will keep everyone posted as we continue planning out this event.
While the summer months are typically quite slow on the news front, there have been some developments announced by a few of our feature companies. Accordingly, we are working on the compilation of our next QIS Update to send out to subscribers.
Looking ahead for the rest of 2017, we’ll be conducting a little more independent stock research with the intent to produce and issue some more Independent Research Reports on some of the quality companies that we look into.
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.
Our most recent email update, QIS Capital Update #9, was sent out to subscribers on July 21, 2017. It included all of the latest announcements from Blue River Resources (BXR:TSX-V), Fairmont Resources (FMR:TSX-V), Lingo Media (LM:TSX-V), and Newlox Gold Ventures (LUX:CSE).
