Value Based Canadian Stocks Listed on the "Pink Sheets"

I started a search for value based pink sheet listed Canadian stocks. Many attractive Canadian stocks trade on the pink sheets. Hopefully I can find useful market inefficiencies existing on the pink sheet for all countries, exchanges and market size.

A market maker must be willing to trade the stock to obtain a pink sheet listing. Some companies want to be traded on the pink sheets to gain exposure to U.S. investors. There are many benefits to the company. This dual listing on the pinks allows US investors to purchase shares without going to the Canadian exchanges. Many online brokers like Ameritrade don’t execute trades on foreign exchanges. So using the pink sheets may allow some exposure to quality Canadian, other countries or US based looking to avoid excessive regulation costs. Today I want to get my feet wet by introducing some value using the balance sheet and focusing on Canada. I believe there are so many more opportunities but this journey will take more time and effort. As you know, just remember with all transaction on the pink sheets you must use limit orders.

Once again I will have to update the post slowly. Additional input for tomorrow and likely the day after.  I wanted to get started today. Nothing too exciting at first glance but I guess value looks boring. 3 stocks for tonight that will be updated tomorrow are IDGBF,DLTOF,ADFJF
