Hello, pour yourself a cup of coffee and sit yourself down at the kitchen table.

MICROCAP KITCHEN CANADIAN STOCKS
Today [8/30/01] Gary and Paul have opened a new board for just CANADIAN STOCKS. Both have extensive knowledge of the Canadian market and this new board should be a perfect compliment to the Microcap Kitchen board. Be sure to visit for a great wealth of Canadian equity investment ideas. You will find it here:
The Microcap Basement:
If you are interested in stocks that do not fit the minimum standards of this board, please visit the Microcap Basement. This is the place to discuss emerging companies or special situations that are priced at under 5 cents. Thanks...
IMPORTANT... Minimum Standards:
We are looking for securities with great potential and/or value on this thread, not mo-mo stocks. Before posting here it is important that the stock meet some basic standards. The price per share should be at least five cents, and the number or shares outstanding should not exceed 200 million shares. Securities with a smaller number of outstanding shares issued have a much higher potential capital gains.
THIS THREAD IS NOT intended for penny or sub-penny stocks with hundreds of millions of shares outstanding. There a plenty of other threads that track these securities.
Your help in maintaining these basic value components is appreciated and necessary to keep this thread focused and viable.
This thread is a meeting place for microcap investors. This includes the whole universe of lower priced securities. It is a place to share and exchange investment and trading ideas so that we all may pursue the rewards possible in the stock market.
Not only do we like to share our investment ideas here, but also our success.
Something to keep in mind is with success comes an opportunity to share some of that good fortune with those less fortunate. So, we encourage you to keep a list of your favorite charities close in order to share some of that good feeling of success with others who need a hand up in this world. Your thoughtful consideration of this idea will be greatly valued by all who visit the Kitchen.
THE PRIME DIRECTIVE:
The exchange of opinions, research, information, and constructive criticism in order improve our investing and trading skills.

WHY A MODERATED THREAD?
The last three quarters of the year 2000 taught us all that a lesson about the efficient market. We on this thread are all adults and accept the fact that despite the best research, sometimes the market will carry us up or push us down. It is no one's fault, but merely the environment in which we seek out advantageous situations.
This is not a place for hyping or bashing. It is not a forum to vent anger over failed trades. This is not a place for spamming. It is not a place for personal attacks. If any individual engages in these activities, the users of this thread reserve the right to block that individual from posting here.
Let's keep our focus on the goal instead of bemoaning the inevitable stumbles along the way.
POLITICAL STATEMENTS: (added 3/15/04)
Since there are a great number of places one can discuss politics for politics sake, purely political posts will not be tolerated here on this moderated thread.
This is a STOCK discussion thread. Political postings are only appropriate here if they are showing a direct relationship to the market action regarding a particular stock or stock sector. The content should only express how a political action will cause a stock to go up or down, and it should not judge the political action itself as being right, wrong, good, bad, etc.
It should be understood that ALL posts on this thread are the opinions of the persons who post here. They should be taken in that light. There are no guarantees in the world and that seems especially true in the stock market.
Situations change with new information. The market itself is often unpredictable. Each individual does the best he can with the available data, but no one can be correct all of the time. If you have any doubts about that, study the calls of Wall Street's professional stock analysts and fund managers.
If you choose to invest in a security that is mentioned on this thread, it is your obligation to thoroughly research that security and make a personal decision to buy or pass based on your investigation alone. The posters on this thread are only sharing their opinions and are in no way suggesting that you make any investment decision based on what is posted here.
It's your money. Don't be foolish. Do your own research before you make an investment decision.
SUCCESS IN TRADING:
Success and "good luck" are the result of persistence and hard work. Let's sit down at the table and work together so this will be a place of good fortune.
