By Kris Sayce – Port Phillip Insider (Australia) –
If you’ve read Port Phillip Insider for the past week, I’m pretty sure you’ve gotten the message.
I believe one of the most exciting and potentially lucrative areas of the stock market are what I call ‘tiny stocks’.
They are what the name suggests: stocks that are tiny!
But what you should also know that I’m terribly biased. My first experience in stocks was with small-cap stocks. That was after I left university in the UK over 20 years ago and got a job, first as a trainee broker, then as a rookie broker for a City of London broking firm.
That was where I first learnt about ‘tiny stocks’. I came across companies that I’d never heard of before. I read about them and studied them. Sometimes I felt as though I ended up knowing more about the business than the company’s executives did.
I know that wasn’t really the case, but it was how I felt. I became so excited about what these tiny firms were doing, that I wanted to know everything there was to know about them.
But that was only half the fun. The other half of it was telling other folks about these businesses. At the time, they were the private clients I brought onboard.
On that note, some people often ask why, if a stock I discover is so great, I don’t just invest in it myself? It’s a fair question. And to be honest, I don’t know if the answer I’m about to give will be satisfactory to some of those folks.
