The average of high-point returns for Investorfile’s Small Cap Value Top Ideas increases to 430%.

In the 10-plus years Investorfile has been blogging about stocks, 2021 ranks as one of the most difficult years to produce results, as a small and microcap stock picker in non-resource sectors. While the first eight weeks of 2021 looked encouraging for growth investors, the party was short-lived. From that point on, low valuations and little liquidity were the dominant trends for small and micro-cap stocks, right up to the last days in December. However, there is hope of recovery early in 2022, and these stocks could begin to recover some of their losses from last year.

In 2021, Investorfile added just one new small cap value stock pick to its list of Top Ideas: Noble Iron (TSXV: NIR). Despite its limited liquidity, Noble Iron’s stock has performed very well. At the end of 2021, the share price is up about 184% since we first profiled the stock on the Investorfile blog.

The high point average return among all of our 23 Top Ideas since the inception of the Investorfile blog in December 2011 stands at 430% at the end of 2021. This is up significantly from the average of 368% at the end of 2020, driven by a group of Investorfile stocks that hit new highs during the past year. Average current returns at the end of 2021 are 271%, which is essentially unchanged year-over-year and which reflects the overall weakness for small cap stocks that was persistent for most of 2021.

Investorfile has documented 23 picks that, to date, make up our list of Top Ideas – Small Cap Value stocks. This summarizes the performances of our Top Ideas over the past nine years:

  • Average high-point returns based on highest closing stock price equals 430%
  • Average current returns to date (which includes all dividends paid) equals 271%
  • Two of our 23 stock picks currently have small negative returns after reaching new highs
  • Nine takeovers/privatizations at a premium-to-stock price
  • Paid out a combined total of $0.95 per share of dividends

The top five share price performers among our Top Ideas during the 12 months of 2021:

  • Noble Iron (TSXV: NIR) +184%
  • Caldwell Partners International (TSX: CWL) +79%
  • Destiny Media Technologies (TSXV: DSY) +60%
  • Novra Technologies (TSXV: NVI) +60%
  • EcoSynthetix (TSX: ECO) +59%
