Good morning to you all. Please find enclosed a summary of the great small-cap and micro-cap press releases we highlighted on our TV show this morning. Today, despite being so close to Labor Day, we had one of our best news cycles yet with a great combination of both multi-million dollar quarterly reports and sales contracts. A great line-up of news worth listening to and reading.

    I couldn’t understand some parts of this article AGORACOM Small-Cap TV – 6 Great Press Releases Before The Open (August 30th), but I guess I just need to check some more resources regarding this, because it sounds interesting.

    Hi, Banyon and thanks for the question. The goal we are trying to accomplish right now is to filter out the best press releases in the morning and get them in front of small-cap investors like you and the entire community.


    If we can weed out those companies that consistently report great quarterly/annual reports, large sales and great customers, than we’re on our way to making far more money than from simply trading for dimes.


    Did you know 9 of the top 10 performing stocks in the last 10 years started out as micro-cap companies? 3 of those 10 had market caps of $10 million or less. Here is the entire article I posted a few days ago:

    The advantage we all have today is that near real-time videos such as AGORACOM TV did not exist to help give all of us the opportunity to collaborate and share.

    Now that we’ve got it, let’s use it. Tune in every morning for 5 minutes and be sure to spread the word to fellow investors. It’s in all of our best interests.

    Thanks and have a great night.
