QIS Update #9 is in draft form as we ready our next email for issuance to all of our subscribers. There has been some more news released from our Feature Companies and we’ll be incorporating that into the next update.
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.
