Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – April 21, 2017
The upcoming Small-Cap Conference to be held in Vancouver on May 4 is approaching quickly. We’ve added a couple of more companies this week and should have the final schedule completed and posted to the website by Monday or Tuesday. These details will be available online at www.smallcapconference.ca.
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 another low-key week on the news front for our Feature Companies. Our most recent QIS Update was sent out back 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). We should have a new QIS Update out within the next week or two to introduce the latest QIS Capital Feature Company.
