Weslosky Week and a Technology Metals Summit Retrospective

Sharpe This morning I was going to publish the interview with Guy Bourassa of Nemaska Lithium, a company that was up +166.67% in 2015; or the completed interview with Troy Grant of Elcora Resources, a company that was up +146.37% in 2015 – but let’s get these up for market open on Monday, so you can remember why you visit InvestorIntel...exceptional content.

Top 10 InvestorIntel Videos of the Year

Top10 In an InvestorIntel story published earlier this week titled The year that was a "challenge" I promised to highlight public company stories that "defied gravity in 2015, and the ones we learned from". Through literally dozens of hours of analysis this last couple of weeks, I can confirm that we do see a correlation between marketing initiatives and companies who fared better relative to their peers. This said, there are no guarantees and as one of our members called me today and concluded so aptly: "It's never just one person." Indeed, and here's to teamwork, and our members whose dedicated hours in airports en route to road shows, endless…

The year that was a “challenge”.

Challenge "The ultimate measure of a man is not where he stands in moments of comfort and convenience, but where he stands at times of challenge and controversy." -- Martin Luther King, Jr. It did not escape me that the one word that was repeated over and over again in holiday greetings this year was “challenging”. Ah yes, while other “pet terms” clamored for attention including demanding, testing, taxing, exacting, onerous, arduous, and grueling: the word “challenging” won hands down. So allow me to ask those that are still standing after the last 12 months in the small cap markets, especially in…
