In challenging markets, public companies must maintain a high degree of visibility with investors or risk disappearing, said Stockhouse Chief Executive Officer Marcus New during a speech at Stockhouse’s annual CEO Martini Party in Vancouver on Thursday.

Mindful of the difficulties that public companies face, especially in the small cap sector, New said Stockhouse has worked hard this year to ensure that its client firms are visible to a wide variety of investors.

 “Building off our success last year of achieving one million unique visitors each month, in 2013 we continued to invest heavily in the company by launching a new site in June,” said New.

The highly anticipated event brings together public company CEOs and the finance community for an afternoon of networking and deal-making.

“The new site gives us the ability to better track user behavior, which enhances our industry-leading ability to target investors from any company with our client’s messages.”

New went on to say that Stockhouse continues to sharpen its approach with respect to how the company works to market issuers and is achieving great results.

“Companies like Strata-X Energy Ltd. (TSX: V.SXE, Stock Forum) that were trading one or two days a week, are now trading every day with a couple of hundred thousand shares changing hands,” he said. 

Clients like Manitok Energy Inc. (TSX: V.MEI, Stock Forum) and LX Ventures Inc. (TSX: V.LXV, Stock Forum) also used Stockhouse’s strategy to help investors recognize their potential.

In challenging markets, New said it is vital that issuers maintain a high degree of visibility with Investors.

“Investors interpret a company that goes quiet as a company that’s not going to be around for long.”

It is a view that was shared by attendees at this year’s CEO Martini Party, which was sponsored by CNSX Markets Inc. and accounting and business advisory firm Dale Matheson Carr-Hilton Labonte LLP.

Senior officials from Stockhouse client Trevali Mining Corp. (TSX: T.TV, Stock Forum) celebrated the completion of a bought deal financing that raised $46 million for the company’s Caribou mine and mill complex in Bathurst, New Brunswick.

“This is a good stamp of approval,’’ said Mark Cruise, President of Trevali, which is quickly establishing itself as a rare pure play on zinc metal.

While Trevali is aiming to capitalize on future shortages of supply in global zinc markets, other Stockhouse clients are eyeing opportunities that are expected to flow from the development of an emerging liquefied natural gas export industry in British Columbia.

Among them is Highbank Resources Ltd. (TSX: V.HBK, Stock Forum) which is aiming to facilitate the LNG sector by supplying sand, gravel and hard rock aggregates from properties in northwestern British Columbia.

David Kearnes, vice-president, investment advisor, with Richardson GMP Ltd., Canada’s largest independent advisory firm, said he is working with a group of Alberta investors who want to support both the LNG industry and a $3 billion plan to modernize the Rio Tinto Alcan aluminum smelter by setting up furnished executive rental units in the Kitimat, B.C, area.

“My job is to set up a vehicle for investors to invest in,’’ Kearnes, who foresees an “explosion of stuff” that is going to be needed for an LNG export sector.

Bottom line: in spite of uncertain markets, Stockhouse clients see a myriad of opportunities out there and many are achieving their goals.
