Value Microcaps is dedicated to finding profitable, low p/e, value stocks. Although our title would suggest a limit on market cap or stock price, we are primarily looking for the "Value" proposition and buy some stocks that are bigger. We avoid story stocks with no revenues or earnings. We do look for turnaround situations where companies have posted a profitable qtr and have indicated in their guidance that additional profits are imminent.

Only stocks that have posted earnings for the most recent quarter, or more earnings than losses for the previous 2, 3 or 4 quarters are appropriate stocks for this board. The word "value" implies earnings.

Quarterly reporting is required in order to qualify for this board. If a stock fails to report and is delisted, it no longer qualifies.

Also, please refrain from duplicate posting on Value Microcaps and VMC Free-Four-All (FFA). Determine which board is most appropriate and post only on that board.

100,000 posts: Complete summary of who posted the most:

VMC Portfolio
This board is a reference board for SSK's VMC 100 portfolio. The stocks in it change several times a year to better represent what VMC'ers are focusing on. The value standards always apply.

VMC Free-For-All
This is a board for stocks that aren't profitable yet or have high p/e and don't fit the Value Microcap formula. They should be stocks that have good to great potential and could potentially change your zipcode! Still a great place to discuss stocks but more open in format.

Value Microcaps DD
We use this board to post semi permanent DD on our favorite stocks. You can post a shorter post on Value Microcaps but then post more detailed analysis on Value Microcaps DD and then refer anyone with interest to the longer post. Due to the smaller volume, it should be easily accessible and prevent the need for repetitive posts asking for basic info.

Mid Cap and Large Cap This board is for stocks that are larger than microcaps yet have similar value characterstics of the Value Microcap board.

VMC Survey Board This board is for a discussion of politics, religion and assorted other nonstock, potentially inflammatory issues.

VMC Junior Energy
Looking for smaller energy stocks that have near term cashflow and profit potential. Many are Canadian stocks.

VMC Junior Miners
Looking for mining stocks that have near term cashflow and high upside potential.

VMC Food and Agriculture
Looking for stocks that benefit from the global need to grow more food and biofuel feedstock. Increased wealth and population in BRIC countries as well as global climate change is creating a worldwide shortage in certain food and fertilizers.
