Ep. 39 - Strategies for Investing in Canadian MicroCap Stocks with Paul Andreola and Brandon Mackie, Small Cap Discoveries

March 1, 2017

For this episode of Planet MicroCap Podcast, I spoke with Paul Andreola and Brandon Mackie, Editor and Writer/Researcher at Small Cap Discoveries. I’m very excited that Paul and Brandon will be speaking at our annual event, the Planet MicroCap Showcase – April 26-28, 2017 at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, NV. They have a very unique MicroCap investing perspective, which we discuss at length in this interview, especially with regard to their core investing strategy and process when looking at Canadian MicroCap stocks.

I also spoke with them about the panels they will be speaking on at the Planet MicroCap Showcase, discuss at length the history, investing landscape and infrastructure in Canada, as well as, accessibility for US investors to invest in Canadian listings and their assessment of the Canadian investing climate currently. The goal for this episode is learn more about Brandon and Paul’s strategies when looking at Canadian MicroCap stocks, how they find new ideas and their thoughts on the current Canadian investing market.
