Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – August 18, 2017
As mentioned, we have been looking into some potential date options for a Fall 2017 Small-Cap Conference in Calgary. Right now, it’s looking like November 14 will be the date for our next evening conference in Calgary at the Coast Plaza. We will update you again once it’s finalized and posted on the conference website.
We are in the process of updating a few of the QIS Capital Feature Company profiles for the website and we will keep you informed as these updated versions get finalized and posted online.
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.
