Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – August 4, 2017
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.
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).
