Investorfile small cap value stock picks gain against the market

Average returns for our Top Ideas rise while small cap indices decline in 2015

For the first half of 2015 the market has not been kind to small cap stocks and particularly for those listed on Canadian exchanges. Generally small cap stock values have headed lower with trading volumes on the decline. The reasons why are multiple and seem to change on a monthly basis. This causes a negative market sentiment and aversion to risk and risk is what small cap stocks inherently possess.

Despite all the market noise so far in 2015, Investorfile's Top Ideas for small cap value stocks posted a combined average total return of 7% to date this year. Compare our returns to the S&P/TSX Small Cap Index a loss of 1%, or the S&P/TSX Venture Exchange Composite Index which is down 5% in 2015, and the results appear even stronger.

We note that the vast majority of Investorfile-recommended small cap stocks trade at higher share prices than the beginning of this year. The few stocks that have declined in 2015 are still up overall (some significantly) since first becoming one of our Top Ideas.

Investorfile’s top performers during the first six-month period of this year are:

  • Quorum Information Technologies Inc. (TSXV: QIS) +40%
  • Avante Logixx Inc. (TSXV: XX) +37%
  • RDM Corporation (TSX: RC) +28%

Even in a volatile market, individual small cap stocks can generate big returns from shareholder-value enhancing events. That said we think many of Investorfile's Top Ideas are well-positioned for investors to profit, either from takeovers, acquisitions or increased dividend payouts in the second half of 2015.

As of June 30, 2015 our Small Cap Value Stocks Top Ideas total return leaders (including dividends) were as follows ($C):

  1. Questor Technology Inc. TSXV: QST - $1.85 (+388%)
