Everyone’s keeping a close eye on the earning reports this January. Here are the companies with earning reports to watch.
👨💼 Employment Services
They are a recruitment company. It’s not very exciting. It was 45 cents a few years ago, but has been pretty flat since 2013. They pay a nice dividend, the stock hardly trades (about 12000 share volume). It’s profitable and well-managed. He would be interested in the stock at 75 cents but it is so…
They haven't indicated a discovery in the St. James Bay area, though he likes the management and this part of the world for exploration.
