Weekly Summary - QIS Blog - November 30, 2018
Once again, it was another rough week for small-cap stocks as the TSX Venture hit another fresh two and a half year low at 582 points. With a lot of Q3 results now issued during this downturn, we'll be monitoring the small-cap markets for signs of over-selling and under-rewarded positive results. Overall though, financial results have been very lacklustre for the majority of small-cap issuers we have reviewed over the past couple of weeks.
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.
