INFORMATION ARBITRAGE ALERT
An information arbitrage exists when a disconnect between stock prices and available public information on a company is noticeable, and monetarily worth pursuing.
ONLY 5 COUPONS AVAILABLE
Why Information Arbitrage?
We don’t take Information Arbitrage (Info Arb) lightly. It’s actually one of the most important aspects of our research that gives us a distinct advantage over the rest of the retail investor crowd.
It’s for this reason why when we come across it, we share it with our Premium Member base as quickly as we can. By the way, it’s a great way for any investor of any level to learn more about finding information that others don’t realize exists, and just might be the best way to profit in the market.
The nice thing about hunting for InfoArb in the microcap universe is that the market can be slow to react to the Arb, giving everyday investors the chance to capitalize on information disconnects. In the case of our current information arbitrage, we have information not readily noticed by most investors that we think will be the spark to catalyze a move in a stock that we’ve been seriously following for the last couple of years. We took a long position above current market prices back in 2018.
If you know anything about GeoInvesting, as long as we have conviction in a company, we are usually in it for the long haul. However, InfoArb can be a great tool to help capture short-term gains as you are waiting for your longer-term holdings to pay off. You’ll also quickly find out that we tend to be contrarians (bet against the crowd), which has led to out-sized gains in stocks that other retail investors first ignored, giving us the clear first mover advantage, especially when we find InfoArb for our Premium Members.
InfoArb Case Study: Contract Award and Form 4 Information Disconnects
Take, for example, Retractable Technologies, Inc. (NYSE:RVP), a company that designs, develops, manufactures, and markets safety syringes and other medical products for the healthcare industry. In early March 2020,
- We noticed that the CEO had been aggressively buying stock for a long period of time to the tune of 100’s of thousand of shares
- RVP announced the settlement of multi-year lawsuit with Becton, Dickinson And Company.
- At the time of the initiation of our coverage, RVP was trading at an enterprise to sales multiple of ~1.2x, well below other medical device companies with EV/Sales well north of 4x.
- It was a timely bet in light of the coronavirus, since stress would be put on the rest of the market to produce much needed needles.
- Finally, the coup d’etat occurred when we came across a government website that mentioned RVP was awarded a coronavirus contract, potentially valued at $83.9M (This was eventually realized, by the way). We immediately delivered this information to our premium members. However, the company did not issue a press release on this new development for several days.
InfoArb Case Study: Conference Call and Press Release Disconnects
Another example of InfoArb is that of Intrusion Inc (OOTC:INTZ), a company that develops, markets, and supports entity identification, high speed data mining, cybercrime and privacy protection products.
The initial Info Arb was that INTZ typically released bland press releases, leading to bad optics for the company. However, the conference calls were entirely different and pointed to an inflection point coming soon. We want to make clear that most investors have little interest in listening to conference calls in the microcap universe, which is a huge reason why we do. Others tend to just read the press releases. With respect to INTZ conference calls:
- We surmised that the inflection point was likely related to commercial opportunities.
- We eventually determined that the company had a history of offering Info Arb on its conference calls after listening to several, quarter after quarter.
- We then knew we were in a position to take advantage of future disparities between the live conference calls and written commentary.
- Management often elaborated on:
- New Product Lines
- New Contracts
- Stock appreciation was the result.
THE NEW InfoArb IDEA
You might be asking, “Why show me past case studies? Every situation is different when it comes to Information Arbitrage.” While this may be true, that is the beauty of it. The discovery of new arbitrage is what makes this so exciting. It is a learning experience to build upon for future idea generation. We believe the current idea has shades of other InfoArb situations that allowed us to buy RVP and INTZ before the crowd.

Why We Are Proud Of Our Work
Over 50 companies profiled on Geo acquired, nearly all at a premium to previous day’s closing price, or price since inception of coverage
26 percent of all our disclosed longs have at least doubled at their peaks during the holding period of the position on GeoInvesting.
GeoInvesting longs compiled average is over 44% since 2014.
Stats show that even after we closed our positions, if we had held our positions, the returns would have dwarfed what we reaped, reinforcing the case for longer-term investing.
GeoInvesting longs (termed GeoBargains in the early years) compiled average was over 30% from 2009 to 2014.
“GEOINVESTING has a fantastic team that does amazing due diligence to find potentially explosive opportunities in the microcap space. I have tremendous respect and admiration for Maj the CEO and co-founder of GEO. He is one of the most humble and hardest working, all around stand up guys in the business. GEO has had some amazing calls over the years that makes their service a steal in my opinion. If you aren’t afraid of the space and you understand the risk and potential rewards of microcaps.”
“I personally really, really believe that you have the best personal approach to speculation…best odds by far …than anyone else I’ve seen in my 40 yrs at this….no kidding Maj… the fact that it is the closest to my own has something to do with it…as I have been hurt so many times that I only take the smallest risk possible in choosing an investment campaign.”
“Geoinvesting is the most valuable microcap research service available today. Their breadth of coverage, when considering depth of analysis, is the most expansive we have yet to encounter. Their coverage focuses on actionable ideas. Their analysis includes considerations of timing and most importantly their thesis and corresponding granular support for their views; and they are transparent with respective to their own positions in the names they cover. Geoinvest’s prinicipal, Maj Soueidan, is one of the best microcap investors in the equity markets today.”
“Hi, I have already taken some action and purchased some shares in [the some of the stocks you cover]. So far with the information from the GEOinvesting portal I have been able to monitor and understand those shares and navigate the web page easily. The information I am getting from the portal is extremely helpful in understanding why stocks go up or down. Thank you so much for helping me get started and coaching me through this, I appreciate everything Maj, and the Geo team have provided me with.”
“Thank you for your e-mails. I am glad that I was able to join GeoInvesting. Microcaps are one of the very few niches where a retail investor can do well, and your service looks sincere and solid. I learnt to know about it from a podcast interview with Nate Tobik and Fred Rockwell. I’ve bought a small bucket of stocks that are in the portfolios but haven’t run up yet. From now on I will focus on the daily morning newsletters and add something new that looks promising. I’m grateful that you make the information available through e-mail and not only through Twitter.”
“Hi Maj, Been a GeoInvesting member since Summer 2018. You opened my eyes to the inefficiencies and opportunities in the microcap market. Looking forward to learning more from you and the GeoInvesting team.”
