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.

Pacific Ethanol Update Report published last week                      

April 17, 2014

The major averages posted solid gains yesterday with the Dow Jones Industrial Average gaining 162.29 points (1.00 percent), the S&P 500 Index rising 19.33 points (1.05 percent to bring it back on the plus side for the year), and the Nasdaq Composite advancing 52.06 points (1.29 percent). While China's rate of GDP growth slowed no worse than expected, it reinforced expectations for more government stimulus. A similar dynamic played out the previous day for Japan. Thus, the slowing Asian economies has been viewed, counter intuitively, as good news as it strengthens the case for more monetary and fiscal stimulus.   In U.S. economic news,  housing starts increased 2.4 percent in March to 946,000 from an upwardly revised 920,000 (from 907,000) in February. The consensus expectation had been 970,000. While up, the March figure did not snap back enough to imply that the weakness in January and February was all weather related. Industrial production increased 0.7 percent in March after increasing an upwardly revised 1.2 percent (from 0.6 percent) in February. The average estimate had been for an increase of  0.5 percent.
