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 morning. 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.

Disquieting geopolitical news just does not seem to have the same impact it used to have.  In a week when a passenger jet was shot down in Ukraine, escalating tensions with Russia, and Israel invaded Gaza, risking a major escalation of hostilities in a region already in turmoil, the Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 156.37 points (0.92 percent), the S&P 500 Index advanced 10.71 points (0.54 percent), and the Nasdaq Composite gained 16.66 points (0.38 percent) as Thursday's weakness was quickly reversed.  Small capitalization stocks lagged with the Russell 2000 slipping (0.72 percent). In sum, it appeared investors believed that "the worst case scenarios" were unlikely to happen and allowed stocks to continue down the path of least resistance...up.  Economic data releases were mixed with retail sales, industrial production, housing starts, building permits, leading indicators, and University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment coming in below expectations while the Empire Manufacturing, NAHB Housing Market Index, Weekly Initial Jobless Claims, and Philadelphia Fed Index reports were upbeat. Fed Chair Janet Yellen reiterated in Congressional testimony that the timing of any hike in interest rates would be data-dependent so the mixed figures actually reassured investors that that day was still far off.
