ABOUT MICROCAP GEMS

Mission
We know that micro-cap stocks can be risky but we believe that large profit potential exists in some of those same micro-cap companies.

The Microcap Gems Newsletter attempts to find tremendous growth opportunities in the micro-cap market. We look for companies showing unusual promise and what we perceive as a favorable risk to reward ratio by using meticulous analysis of the company and its competitors. We do this by reading and evaluating all of the research reports written about micro-cap stocks, contacting the companies, customers and competitors.

Most of the research written about micro-cap stocks is termed "issuer paid research" since the companies themselves pay the research firm to have the report written.

Microcap Gems is not an issuer paid research provider and to preserve our objective evaluations MicroCap Gems does not accept any payments to profile a company nor do we trade in any of the companies we cover.

We believe that issuer paid research holds much value as long as you can filter out those reports making noise from the companies with true promise.

When we find a real 'gem' that merits your consideration we will profile the company in the Microcap Gems newsletter. As many of these Gems are long-term investments, once we profile a company we will keep you abreast of on going developments as its investment story unfolds. As we do our due diligence we will also uncover and alert you to scams and pump/dump operations, which will help you avoid the land mines in the micro-cap world.

Editor Bio
Steven J. Anderson has over 16 years experience in the investment and trading arena. He graduated from West Virginia University in 1992 with a BSBA in Finance/Investments and Securities. While in college, his stock market passion had him actively analyzing and speculating in small and micro-cap stocks by the time he started his junior year.

After college, Steve began trading commodity options and Dow futures as a member of the Chicago Board of Trade. However, his infatuation with smaller stocks soon had him starting up his own small cap investment newsletter. In 1996 he began writing the Anderson Small Cap Report that was an equities newsletter to investors focusing on small and micro capitalized stocks. Commentary from that newsletter was featured on many web sites and investment publications.

In 2004 Steve gave up trading to take a job as an Equity Analyst and ended the Anderson Small Cap Report.

Once again he found himself longing for the opportunity and excitement only found in the micro-cap stock arena. So in 2005 the Microcap Gems newsletter was born.

Steve still believes that one of the most enjoyable aspects of writing his newsletter is his being permitted to help others benefit through his knowledge and experience. His infatuation with the markets and his desire to help others learn drives him to speak annually at the West Virginia University MBA Executive Speaker Series. At these seminars Steve speaks to students and industry professionals about his insight and involvement within the intriguing world of trading and investing.

What kind of strategy is used for MicroCap Gems?
We attempt to find tremendous growth opportunities in the micro-cap market. We look for companies showing unusual promise and what we perceive as a favorable risk to reward ratio by using meticulous analysis of the company and its competitors. We do this by reading and evaluating all of the research reports written about the micro-cap stock, contacting the companies, customers and competitors.
Back to FAQ's

Do I have higher risk investing in the micro-cap stock arena?
Absolutely. There is a much higher failure rate among micro-cap companies than the market in whole. Micro-cap stocks are especially volatile and risky and only a small amount of your assets should be devoted to the micro-cap arena. We recommend that you speak to a licensed financial advisor if you have any question at all of how much you should invest in this segment of the market. More information on investing in micro-cap stocks can be found at http://www.sec.gov/investor/pubs/microcapstock.htm
Back to FAQ's

How often are new stocks released?
Although the newsletter is emailed on a bi-weekly basis, we have no routine schedule on how often a new stock is released. When we find a new "gem" that warrants attention, we will highlight it. If we cannot find one that we feel comfortable releasing at that time, until one is found, we will highlight previously released gems that we believe are at attractive price levels. That being said, we normally will highlight and add about one new stock to our "Gem Portfolio" every month. Our remaining newsletters normally highlight stocks that have been previously added to the MicroCap Gems portfolio. Again, these previously released stocks will normally have had an event take place or price action that we feel warrants our subscriber's attention at that time.
Back to FAQ's

How does a subscriber stay updated on a stock within the MicroCap Gems portfolio?
