Tough first half for Investorfile stocks in 2022
Posted by: Gerry Wimmer

Despite the market demise for small cap stocks to date this year, there are still some share price gainers among Investorfile's Top Ideas over the last six months.

So far, the first half of this year ranks as one of the most difficult periods to produce results as a small-and-microcap stock picker in non-resource sectors. While the financial performance for a majority of our Top Ideas is strong, very low valuations and little liquidity are the dominant trends for small and microcap stocks in 2022. While we can not fathom things getting worse for the valuations of Investorfile’s Top Ideas, a strong balance sheet (which most of our stock picks have) is an important quality to help weather the current downturn. However, there is hope that small cap stocks will lead the recovery in the market and, as such, begin to recoup some of their losses from the first half of this year.

The high-point average return among all of our 24 Top Ideas, since the inception of the Investorfile blog in December 201, stands at 417% at the timeframe ending June 30, 2022. Despite the market demise for small cap stocks to date this year, two of Investorfile’s stock picks did set new high point return marks during this period: Noble Iron (TSXV:NIR) +360% and EcoSynthetix (TSX: ECO) +309%.

At the mid-point for 2022, the current total average return since inception of the Investorfile blog stands at 207%, overall for our stock selections. This is notably less than the current total average return at the end of 2021.

Investorfile’s top three share price performers within the first six months of 2022:

  • Noble Iron Inc. (TSXV: NIR) +35%
  • Redline Communications Group (TSX: RDL) +29%
  • Caldwell Partners International (TSX: CWL) +11%

As of June 30, 2022, Investorfile’s Small Cap Value Stocks Top Ideas all-time rankings for high-point returns are as follows ($C):
