KeyStone’s Small-Cap Research Service
Our Small-Cap Research Service provides serious investors with specific BUY/SELL/HOLD advice on undervalued micro, small, and mid-cap growth and value stocks. Real companies, producing real revenue and earnings growth, trading at low prices - How do we do it? We simply dig deeper and search further into areas where traditional big bank or large institutional research will not look - providing you with independent first coverage on some of Canada's fastest growing small-cap stocks. Our independent analysts have a very successful track record (link to track record page) of recommending small-caps with tremendous upside potential, before the broader financial arena.

We are investors, not traders. We recommend you buy businesses, not stock symbols.

For those unfamiliar with how our services works we can sum it up with the following
“5 Steps to Use KeyStone’s Research Services”
Sign-up for either our Small-Cap or Income Stock Research Service or our full premium package (both) – read about the services and find out which meets your equity research needs.
Set-up an account with a discount brokerage (many of you will already have one). This will allow you to buy and sell the stocks on our recommendations in the most cost effective manner (in most cases $10 or under per transaction). For those that do not currently trade through a discount brokerage our Starter Guide has a very useful Canadian Brokerage Survey to help you select an appropriate broker for you.
Read through our helpful Starter Guide - KeyStone's Equity PlayBook. When you become a client, you will immediately gain access to KeyStone’s Equity PlayBook, a simple PDF booklet that will help you maximize the effectiveness of our service. The guide provides simple information including how to understand the basics of KeyStone’s research service, layout your investment goals and understand your risk tolerance, help determine your asset (capital) allocation, how to locate a great discount broker for trading (or to switch to), how to acquire great stocks for your portfolio, how to effectively monitor your portfolio from a long-term perspective, and finally how to expand your investment knowledge.
Begin building the equity (stock) component of your portfolio – with a focus on growth. Core to our service is our stock specific BUY, SELL, & HOLD recommendations which you receive via email (PDF format) and are posted in your account on our website (PDF format) – telling you what to BUY, when to HOLD, and when to SELL. You can choose to mirror one of a number of our portfolios by buying positions in each of the current BUY recommendations or select the individual companies that suit you best from our research and build your own growth or income portfolios. We recommend you take a long-term approach and build your portfolio(s) with strategic purchases over a 6 month to year period and add to or sell individual stocks as we recommend over time.
Review and re-balance your portfolio over time. As your growth and/or income stock portfolio(s) take shape and grow over the years, stocks you hold will be continuously updated via our update reports and you will be periodically advised to alter existing positions (SELL HALF or all of your position).
“A New Twist on Time Tested Research Methodology – we know stocks”
On the heels of the 2008 financial crisis and the past decade (2000-2010) where investors saw their dollars invested in major North American indexes including the S&P 500 post negative returns in the range of -23%, investors are looking for better solutions for their portfolios.

Traditional mutual funds and jack-of-all trade financial advisors do not cut it anymore. Equities (stocks) form the most important component of your portfolio. For investors with beyond a 10 year horizon, equities can often comprise around 70% of your portfolio and should be responsible for the majority of the growth within your portfolio. Moreover, for those close to or in retirement (link to our income service), the dividends provided by strong, cash flow positive equities can provide the income necessary to supplement your existing pension or other income vehicles.

Trusting all of this critical growth area of your portfolio to traditional financial advisors whose knowledge is stretched thin between his or her retirement, insurance, estate planning, and taxation responsibilities or to traditional fund managers, who charge too much and continually underperform the market, just does not make sense.

At KeyStone, all we do is stocks. We are not financial planners, we do not perform financings for the companies we research, we simply search for the best small-cap growth and income producing stocks for your portfolio. It is a different model, but we believe it is the best one out there and our long-term clients agree (link to testimonials page).

KeyStone continues to use a simple, but highly effective strategy - literally poring over the financial statements of 1,000s of potential investments to target low priced, profitable stocks before the broader market identifies their tremendous growth potential. We interview management and continue to follow them on your behalf, giving you specific BUY/SELL/HOLD advice designed to help you profit long term as an “investor,” not as a speculative trader.

You want growth, your portfolio needs growth, but you want a level of safety with that long-term growth. We help you buy profitable, underfollowed small-cap stocks to help provide you with that growth, at great prices.

“19-YEAR AVERAGE GAIN: 36.87%”
Returns presented here are based on an equally weighted average of all featured companies throughout that year, if one were to buy an equal amount in each company recommended and held to the closing price on the specified da tes. In 2007 the service was unavailable for 6 month’s as Key­Stone transitioned from a 5 publication subscription based service to a real-time research service via one interface. As such, a one year sample is not available for 2007. It should not be assumed that the past performance of any companies featured in our research will equal future performance.
