In a down market, Sangoma Technologies Corp. (TSXV: STC), Questor Technology Inc. (TSXV: QST), Avante Logixx Inc. (TSXV: XX) and Caldwell Partners International Inc. (TSX: CWL) still generated good returns year-over-year in 2018.

Since inception, our selection of 20 small cap value stock picks to date has delivered a current total average return of 185%, which is down 2.5% from 2017. Compare this to the S&P/TSX Small Cap Index, which posted a loss of 20% in 2018 and the S&P/TSX Venture Exchange Composite Index, which saw a loss of 34.5% in 2018, and we feel that Investorfile’s basket of Top Ideas have fared well against the comparable market indices by recording only a minimal loss year-over-year.

The high point (highest stock price close) average return for all of our Top Ideas since the inception of the Investorfile blog is 271% at this year’s end.

Since December 2011, Investorfile has documented 20 picks that, to date, make up our list of Top Ideas – Small Cap Value stocks. This summarizes the performance of our Top Ideas over the past seven years:

  • Average high-point returns based on highest closing stock price equals 271% 
  • Average current returns to date (which includes all dividends paid) equals 185%
  • Only two of 20 stock picks currently have negative returns, and both losses are marginal
  • Seven takeovers/privatizations at a premium to stock price 
  • Paid out a combined total of $0.8375 per share of dividends

The top share price performers among our Top Ideas during 2018:

  • +77% - Sangoma Technologies (TSXV: STC)
  • +24% - Questor Technology (TSXV: QST)
  • +22% - Avante Logixx (TSXV: XX)
  • +18% - Caldwell Partners International (TSX: CWL)
