Weekly Summary - QIS Blog - January 11, 2019
As we head a little deeper into 2019, the markets appear to be stabilizing somewhat after a mass selloff in December. QIS Capital will continue to update investors on our portfolio of Feature Companies as well as mention other situations to be mindful of as opportunities present themselves in the Canadian small-cap market.
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.
There will be a new QIS Update coming out early this week. The most recent email update issued by QIS Capital was emailed out to subscribers back on November 26, 2018. QIS Update #19 includes news from Deer Horn Capital (DHC:CSE), and Q3 results from NTG Clarity Networks (NCI:TSX-V).
A QIS Capital Feature Company Profile dated Nov. 23rd for Deer Horn Capital (DHC:CSE) has been uploaded to the QIS Capital website.
