Weekly Summary - QIS Blog - June 21, 2019
With the 2019 summer doldrums upon us and the school year coming to an end, things have slowed down on the news front. The last QIS Update was issued about a month ago, but we will continue to monitor the newswires to stay on top of the latest developments. Companies often release fewer news bulletins this time of year, but we will pass on any news and commentary as needed!
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 most recent QIS Capital Update was issued to all subscribers on May 23, 2019. This update included financial results and news from NTG Clarity Networks (NCI:TSX-V).
