Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – April 13, 2017

 

 

Upcoming Events

 

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.

 

 

Recent Events
