Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – September 29, 2017
As discussed over the past few weeks, the Fall 2017 Small-Cap Conference in Calgary is scheduled for November 14 at the Coast Plaza Hotel and Conference Centre. We've been contacting and receiving interest from several companies and will provide a list of participants 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.
