Weekly Summary - QIS Blog - December 14, 2018

 

 

Upcoming Events

 

Like a broken record, it was another week of falling off for Canadian small-caps. The TSX Venture hit a fresh two and a half year low at 554.70 points. We'll continue to monitor for stocks getting oversold and will be ready to buy on the dips as investors look to convert shares to cash. Some of the stocks we have been picking up recently on weakness include LTE, IFR, and PHO.

 

It is important to note that some important year-end dates are fast approaching. For 2018, the final day to trade a stock and maintain a settlement date in 2018 is December 27 (Canadian and U.S. markets). The settlement period is 2 trading days, so trades need to occur by the 27th of December to settle in 2018. For tax-loss selling purposes, this date is important to remember - just 7 trading days remain.

 

 

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.
