Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – September 22, 2017
As discussed in past weeks, the Fall 2017 Small-Cap Conference in Calgary is planned for November 14 at the Coast Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre. We've been getting some initial interest from several companies and will post a schedule of events once everything is finalized. If you would like to attend this year's conference, registration is now available online at: http://www.smallcapconference.ca/register.
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.
