Uncommon Equities

Uncommon Equities provides investment research for promising public small and microcap companies that need to have their stories told.

We tell these stories in a balanced, professional manner.

Uncommon Equities believes it is important that investors, evaluating a company’s investment merits, have access to comprehensive and timely company and industry information and professional insights to put this information in context. Since many investors need time to build confidence in a company as a rewarding long-term investment, our research offering includes an extensive initial report, quarterly updates, and research notes as warranted. Uncommon Equities provides this service in response to the contraction of quality equity research coverage on small companies from traditional sources.

Other Services

As we search for under-followed investment opportunities for inclusion in our research coverage program, we often come across stocks that, while already receiving research coverage from brokerage firms, strike us as being promising investment opportunities that we would like to share with our visitors. We will share why we believe these ideas are worthy of consideration in brief "Snapshots."

In addition, as a service to our site visitors, we prepare a market comment each week. Although the focus of Uncommon Equities is on introducing investors to under-followed and, in many cases, undiscovered specific investment opportunities, we believe it is helpful to have a context within which to make investment decisions.

August 25, 2014

The market shrugged off a potentially-dangerous confrontation between Ukraine and Russia and finished the week solidly higher; the Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 338.31 points (2.0 percent), the S&P 500 Index advanced 33.34 points (1.7 percent; it finished the week at 1988.40 after hitting a record intraday high of 1994.76 on Thursday), and the Nasdaq Composite added 73.62 points (1.6 percent). The big news of the week was supposed to be Fed Chair Janet Yellen's keynote address at this year's Jackson Hole Symposium on Friday. Ms. Yellen said the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) still sees significant underutilization of labor resources and that the labor market has not fully recovered even when taking into account the recent gains. However, she also indicated that faster progress on goals could lead to a quicker rate hike, but this approach should be expected from a data-dependent central bank. Summing it up, Chair Yellen provided no real new clues to Fed policy. That said, the current debate on the FOMC appears to be whether to start raising the federal funds rate in March or June/July.
