On December 18, 2014, Ken Fisher, Executive Chairman and Co-Chief Investment Officer of Fisher Investments, delivered the keynote speech at the inaugural equities.com Small-Cap Stars Conference, an invitation-only event which took place at the NASDAQ MarketSite in Times Square.
Ken Fisher’s investing roots are closely connected with small cap stocks, having been a pioneer helping to create small-cap value as a unique investing discipline in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Ken Fisher’s bestselling 1984 book, Super Stocks, outlined the use of the price-to-sales ratio to identify unique opportunities others overlooked. Five years later, Callan Associates, a major institutional consulting firm, introduced the first small-cap value peer group for institutional investors, used to calibrate performance. Ken Fisher’s firm, Fisher Investments, was one of only 12 included in this group. Today, small cap value is widely considered one of the investing world’s major equity categories.
The Small-Cap Stars Conference is a platform to connect NASDAQ-listed small-cap companies with institutional investors. equities.com designed the conference as opportunity for emerging growth and under-covered small cap companies to meet with a select audience of institutional investors, investment banks, hedge funds and Wall Street analysts.
