Weekly Summary - QIS Blog - February 23, 2018
It is important to note that the RRSP deadline this year is March 1. You have until then to contribute some equity into your RRSP and still claim that contribution on your 2017 tax return later this year.
This week we are planning on issuing a general overview of the small-cap markets as our latest QIS Capital Update. We are having an extremely difficult time finding quality, “undervalued” companies using historical metrics for earnings, cash flow, and EBITDA. True - there are many companies trading at lower multiples than peers, but in our opinion valuations have become out of step with financial reality.
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 15-25 email updates per year.
The QIS Capital Feature Company profile for NTG Clarity Networks (NCI:TSX-V) has recently been updated and posted to the QIS Capital website at www.smallcaps.ca.

The first QIS Capital email update of 2018 was sent out to subscribers in January 2018. QIS Update #1 included the latest corporate updates from Newlox Gold Ventures (LUX:CSE) and NTG Clarity Networks (NCI:TSX-V).
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.
During a holiday shortened trading week, the markets seemed to steady a little as none of the indices we track in this section moved significantly in either direction for the week. The S&P TSX Venture Composite Index delivered a loss 4.08 points for the 4-day week, closing at 826.09 on Friday. Canada’s most-watched stock index, the S&P TSX Composite, posted a second consecutive weekly gain by adding 185.81 points. The TSX Composite closed on Friday at 15,638.45 points. Down in the United States, stocks also moved up for the second week in a row. The Dow Jones Industrial Average added 90.61 points on the week before closing on Friday at 25,309.99 points.
