Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – April 13, 2017
Fast approaching is the next Small-Cap Conference to be held in Vancouver on May 4. More details will be posted online at www.smallcapconference.ca as we finalize the schedule of presenters.
Registration is open and any investors who are interested in discovering quality, underfollowed small-cap stocks are encouraged to attend. Sign up for free 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.
It was a relatively quiet week on the news front. Our most recent QIS Update was sent out a couple of weeks ago on March 27 and included news from Blue River Resources (BXR:TSX-V), Fairmont Resources (FMR:TSX-V) and Lingo Media Corporation (LM:TSX-V).
To receive QIS Capital’s email updates directly in your inbox as they are issued, please sign up for free at: http://www.smallcaps.ca/investor_signup. We typically send out 3-4 email updates per month.
