Weekly Summary - QIS Blog - February 22, 2019
QIS Capital will continue to monitor the newswires as we compile news and information for our next email - QIS Update #3. We will keep investors informed with as much notice as we can for any additional special events such as a conference call scheduled with management. These types of events will be announced via the website and through the QIS Capital Update emails as they are scheduled.
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.
The first two email updates of 2019 have been completed and sent out by QIS Capital to our subscribers on January 14 and February 1, respectively. These two updates include information from Deer Horn Capital (DHC:CSE), and news from International Frontier Resources (IFR:TSX-V).
To receive QIS Capital’s email updates directly in your inbox as they are issued, please sign up at: http://www.smallcaps.ca/investor_signup. We typically send out 10-15 email updates per year.
