One of key strategies I use to find microcap diamonds in the rough is to combine the concepts of Growth + Value. On April 11, 2016, I presented (videos at bottom) at the 2016 Microcap Conference Toronto, where I gave a speech on this very subject, some of which is paraphrased and elaborated on below. […]
Don’t give up on your microcap stock picking strategy when it’s not working. I invest a great deal of time and energy searching for microcap stocks that are under-followed and often undervalued. Unfortunately, (or fortunately, depending on how you look at it) Microcap stocks have under-performed the broader markets over the last few years. 2015 […]
My first site visit of the year was to Smith-Midland Corp. (OOTC:SMID). While interviewing management teams behind stocks on my buy list is one of the most valuable aspects of my research process, I also know that just as powerful can be the ability to see first-hand, through site visits, exactly how the company operates.

One of the items I touched upon was the “gaping hole” in stock screeners. “The data used to power stock screeners (especially earnings per share) can often […]
Automated stock screeners are overrated, but on the surface they may seem attractive. With over 20,000 stocks to choose from on U.S. exchanges and the over the counter market, it is natural to want to explore ways to reduce potential investment choices to the most ideal ones that meet your investment criteria. What better way to save […]
While awaiting a market correction, I like to read quotes of legendary investors to help me get through mentally taxing environments. This is one of my favorites: “To buy when others are despondently selling and to sell when others are avidly buying requires the greatest fortitude and pays the greatest ultimate rewards.” –Sir John Templeton, “greatest […]
A note on current market volatility from Maj Soueidan, GeoInvesting co-founder Being a micro-cap investor after the 2008 recession has been challenging. There is no doubt that the investment landscape has changed over the last 7 years.
