Espace MC

Espace MicroCaps was founded in March 2014 by Philippe Bergeron-Belanger and Aaron Lanni with the initial objective to share educational content on microcap investing and investment ideas. To pursue a career as a financial analyst for a wealth management firm, Aaron left the project in May 2015 and Philippe recruited his longtime friend and an important member of the Espace MicroCaps community, Mathieu Martin, to help him realize his vision.

Espace MicroCaps is a community of microcap investors with a growth-value philosophy. Their in-depth research and due diligence aims to put growth capital at work for the most promising public firms in Quebec and Canada with a long term investment horizon.

Philippe is a personal friend to Scott and someone that he has enjoyed collaborating with over the years. 


Base Hit Investing

Base Hit Investing is an excellent blog that helps investors adopt the right mentality and mindset that we believe is crucial to being successful with microcap investing. The site is run by John Huber, who is the portfolio manager of Saber Capital Management, LLC, a value-focused investment firm. Saber’s objective is to compound capital over the long-term by making investments in undervalued stocks of high-quality businesses.

Saber’s approach to investing is based on the general principles of value investing. Stocks are pieces of businesses that should be analyzed by thinking critically about the economics of the business, its durability against competition, its future prospects, the effectiveness of management and their track record, and the price that a private buyer would pay for the entire company. A Saber portfolio is typically a concentrated portfolio.
