About Us

“Exploration is really the essence of the human spirit.”

- Frank Borman, NASA Astronaut
Far too often, small-cap investors commit their hard-earned money based on uneducated guesses… darts in the dark.

What is Pinnacle Digest?

Pinnacle Digest (PD) was established as an online financial newsletter for speculators and small cap investors a decade ago. In order to consistently bring its readers industry leading investment coverage on the Canadian small-cap market, PD has built relationships with some of North America's leaders in the space…from innovative CEOs to award winning geologists, top venture capitalists and money managers, Pinnacle has leveraged its relationships to bring its readers unparalleled coverage.

Having travelled around the globe, from Chile to the Yukon, Japan, Europe to Silicon Valley, Pinnacle’s financial coverage comes with worldly context and unmatched access for its readers. We believe that elite small-cap research and coverage requires 'boots on the ground knowledge' to truly understand the opportunities and challenges emerging companies face in their growth cycle.

Perspective from Experience

We contend that industry headlines dictate the direction and valuations of micro caps as much as fundamental company development.

  As a subscriber to Pinnacle Digest’s weekly email newsletter, you’ll have access to a ton of useful and strategic investor information. But it’s not your typical investment content provided by the mainstream media. It’s quite different - and there's nothing generic about our letter...  

Virtually every piece of content we publish has a small-cap slant to it, providing actionable and what we call 'tactical investing info'. No matter how global the issue at hand, we connect it to the impact on small, publicly traded companies here in Canada. Here's an example: The World's Next Battleground - Junior Miners Get Out  

In addition to our cutting edge industry coverage, the PD email newsletter provides a range of biased, comprehensive reports on small or micro-cap investment opportunities within the energy, technology, mining and biotech sectors. These are known as our Featured Companies. If you opt in via any of our registration forms on this site, you will become a subscriber to our free newsletter and can see exactly what it is all about. If at any time you are not satisfied with our newsletter, opt out, no questions asked. There is an unsubscribe option in every email we send to our subscribers. You can also unsubscribe by emailing us at support (at) pinnacledigest.com, subject, unsubscribe.

Emerging Canadian Investment Trends

We’ve always been fixated on high risk investment opportunities in the development or exploratory stages. As a result of our passion for the Canadian small-cap markets (consisting of companies on the TSX, TSX Venture and CSE), we track trends that very few, if any, publications follow. For example:

  Our research and writing often focuses on commodities, potentially disruptive technology, monetary policy and geopolitics. We believe that each one of these topics are key drivers behind the ebb and flows of small-cap stocks. The research provided in our newsletter is backed with historical statistics and a consistent contrarian view. Here's one for you: The Oil Pipeline No One is Talking About


"Once you’ve had your first 10-bagger, you’re hooked on small-caps."

- Aaron Hoddinott, Managing Director Pinnacle Digest

Before 'The Street' Knows

With a background in both building and marketing early and development-stage companies, the Managing Director of Pinnacle Digest, Aaron Hoddinott, takes a generalist approach to the market, and when deciding which companies to cover in our newsletter.  

With a slight bias toward disruptive technology and natural resource opportunities, the primary goal of Pinnacle Digest is to get ahead of stories and investment opportunities before ‘The Street’.

  Whether it's a monster gold discovery in Timmins, Ontario, the latest developments in nuclear fusion, or the potential investing impacts of technological singularity, PD covers stories that could redefine regions, even the world, and speculates how small-cap investors may capitalize.  

It is important to understand that Pinnacle Digest focuses on high-risk investment opportunities in its newsletter and on this website. If you’re not prepared to potentially lose the money you have invested, these opportunities just aren’t for you. The junior market (the focus of Pinnacle Digest) is merely an arena for calculated gambles.  

Investors should use our reports and weekly letter as a starting point to do additional, independent research. Education is key when investing, particularly in the small and micro-cap markets. Don’t be lazy, do your due diligence.
