Upcoming Events

 

In addition to the new company profile that was recently issued and discussed in the section below, several of QIS Capital's Feature Company profiles were updated recently and will soon be posted on the website at www.smallcaps.ca/feature-companies.

 

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.
