Weekly Summary - QIS Blog – April 7, 2017
Coming up in just under a month, we’ll be hosting the next Small-Cap Conference in Vancouver on May 4. As we firm up the schedule, more details will be posted 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 a relatively quiet week on the news front. Our most recent QIS Update was sent out 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).
