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.

In addition to the economic benefits of cheaper fuel, investors found moves in favor of more stimulative monetary policy in Europe (European Central Bank started to buying asset-backed securities and said it was prepared to do more quantitative easing) and China (the central bank lowered the one-year benchmark lending rate for the first time in more than two years) as cause for greater optimism about prospects for sustained U.S. economic growth and continuing low interest rates.  In addition, the minutes of the Federal Open Market Committee's October meeting indicated that while the FOMC was upbeat about recent labor market trends concerns about the absence of inflation and weak overseas economies made them reluctant to move toward any tightening of monetary policy at this time. At least some of the money that left the market in early October has come back, lifting stocks about 13 percent from their mid-October lows.  Last week the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 175.32 points (0.99 percent), the S&P 500 Index advanced 23.68 points (1.16 percent), and the Nasdaq Composite gained 24.43 points (0.52 percent).  Both the Dow and the S&P closed at record highs on Friday.
