Paul Andreola – Editor
Paul Andreola has one focus in his research: fundamental cash flow and earnings in micro-cap and smallcap companies. His successful track record in getting 100%-1000% returns from his stocks comes from studying financial statement and industry reports, so by the time he talks to management—he knows as much about the company and the industry as they do. Paul has honed his skills from 30 years of varied smallcap experience.He has been the co-founder of two public companies and CEO and director of another—all three in the technology space. He also helped raise the initial funding for each. This experience gives him an important view when he is interviewing management for newsletter stock picks. He knows the pitfalls and mistakes that management teams must avoid. Paul also spent 10 years as a retail stockbroker, again focusing exclusively on smallcaps. He knows the capital structures that work and don’t work in the microcap space. He knows the company, the industry, AND the stock. Paul’s goal is to be first in identifying smallcap growth stocks before they are discovered by the broader market. That involves hours of exhaustive fundamental research, and then drawing on a tight network of experienced and senior contacts. There are no resource stocks in Paul’s portfolio—which is where most of Canada’s smallcap crowd focuses. The Canadian microcap market – especially the non-resource space – is a huge opportunity for investors willing to dig deep and uncover these hidden gems. Paul understands the intricacies of the public markets and the challenges smallcap companies face. He is now funneling all that experience and discipline into a newsletter called Smallcap Discoveries. When he is not scanning quarterly reports, Paul can be found playing with one of his four children.
