This weekend is a short report as it serves as a heads-up on a micro cap tech stock I am featuring for paid Ticker Trax subscribers on Monday.
I will be featuring the company in this weekend column for free readers mid November but under our guidelines I always try to provide stock research first to paid subscribers before the general public. The annual cost of a Ticker Trax subscription is very low and it is only fair to subscribers that they get new research several weeks in advance.
You have the option to wait until mid month for this report or you can subscribe by Monday afternoon as the report will be hitting email boxes Monday night.
Stockhouse currently has a promotion running for the newsletter and it is only $94 for two years – which is ridiculously low (too low in my opinion). I only do the writing and research while they do the marketing so you can get more information here:
MANY CANADIAN INVESTORS ARE MISSING THE TECH SECTOR BOOM
A VERY small percentage of the stocks listed on the TSX and TSX Venture exchange are tech related. In fact I believe tech makes up less than 5%.
And while tech stocks have been generating huge gains for investors on the NYSE and NASDAQ, most speculators in Canada have been drowning in losses associated with resource exploration. Even the biggest and best brokerage firms and funds are down 30% to 40% this past year on their metals and mining stocks.
Because the TSX and TSX Venture are so heavily weighted to resource companies, many investors and speculators are missing out entirely on what is happening south of the border with tech.
I am not sure I agree with this theory but many say this sector boom resembles what we saw in 1998 and 1999 before tech stocks took on a level of insanity and generated remarkable gains. Even if it never hits that level, there is no doubt Internet and Social Media is white hot. Not just public company valuations, but private companies are commanding top dollar.

2011 INT.V GAINS > 2000%
In the past several years there have been few Canadian stocks that produced the type of gains we saw with a small tech company called Intertainment Media Inc.
, Stock Forum
) (5 cents). You would either remember this company as making you huge money or creating huge losses.
Heading into 2011 this stock was trading below 10 cents and within six months it was up over 2000%
The volume was also massive as the stock traded millions of shares daily and it seemed every speculator in Canada was trading this thing. Unfortunately it was a disaster in the making and I even published a report in February 2011 warning people.
Little did I know there were still huge gains to be made from February but when the smoke settled, this company left a path of widows and orphans.
The company I am featuring Monday is nothing like INT. It has an excellent share structure plus blue chip management, directors and advisory board. They are also well funded with a very small market capitalization and trading near the bottom of their chart because few have paid any attention to them. Yet their business model is first class and the potential of their software / technology could be ground breaking.
Do I expect the company could produce gains of 2000% within six months? I have no idea and would never make forecasts like that.
I do know however that the sector is white hot in the United States and these guys are in the right space at the right time.
They are being overlooked because they are a small Canadian public company but that does not mean they cannot compete with the best tech companies out there.
I remember when Research in Motion (TSX: T.BB
, Stock Forum
) was a $3 stock and they were introducing the BlackBerry 850 pager. It seemed like an innovative idea at the time but few ever believed they would become a global powerhouse.
I don’t know if this small company I am introducing Monday has that type of potential but from the research I have done to date, their potential within the Social Media space is VERY large.
These are the type of stocks we want to find early before the broader investment community picks up on the story or before the company begins to produce significant revenue or news flow.
