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.

It appeared to be a case of too much good news last week as the sharp decline in oil prices unnerved investors.  The closing price of U.S. crude on Friday was $57.81/barrel, down $8.03 for the week to reach its lowest level since mid-2009.  The understandable weakness in energy stocks was not offset by strength elsewhere as concerns grew about the overall economy...despite the fact that November retail sales surged 0.7 percent, as compared to expectations of a 0.4 percent gain, as  consumer confidence readings rose to recovery highs.  The Dow Jones Industrial Average fell 677.96 points (3.78 percent), the S&P 500 Index declined 73.04 points (3.52 percent), and the Nasdaq Composite was off 127.16 points (2.66 percent).  While oil prices fell, gold rallied $31.90/ounce to $1222.  Elsewhere in the world, the Russian ruble remained under pressure and is now down more than 40 percent over the past year and China's exports rose only 4.7 percent year-over-year in November, a marked deceleration from October's 11 percent increase.
