Weekly Summary - QIS Blog - May 17, 2019
NTG Clarity Networks (NCI:TSX-V) announced Q1 numbers this morning. Overall a significant improvement from Q4 and a great start to 2019. We will be issuing a full update in the coming days. After a string of positive news releases this month, and with a new sales model being implemented, 2019 could breathe some much awaited life into NTG Clarity.
We will be watching for many other small-cap companies to file Q1 results in May 2019. We continue to struggle to find fundamentally undervalued companies as small-caps simply aren't turning as much profit as before, many companies have turned toward revenue growth rather than profitability, or companies that are making money are trading at extremely high multiples. We will likely need to see a pretty significant market correction before investors turn back toward fundamentals.
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.
