About Us

“Exploration is really the essence of the human spirit.” – Frank Borman, NASA Astronaut

We believe that quality micro-cap coverage requires ‘boots on the ground knowledge’ to better understand the opportunities, risks and challenges venture companies face in their pursuit of growth. 

Having travelled around the globe, from Chile to the Yukon, Israel, Romania, Nicaragua, Japan, Europe and Silicon Valley, Pinnacle Digest’s coverage provides unique context on our sponsors, often startups which aim to defy the odds and succeed where most that came before them have failed.

What is Pinnacle Digest?

Pinnacle Digest (“PD” or “PinnacleDigest.com”) was established as an online financial newsletter for speculators and micro-cap investors over a decade ago. With the goal of bringing its readers and viewers industry leading coverage on the Canadian venture capital market, PD has built relationships with some of North America’s leaders in the space… from innovative CEOs to award winning geologists, tech entrepreneurs, venture capitalists and money managers, PD has leveraged its relationships with the aim to enhance both its coverage on sponsor companies and overall content creation approach. 


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

As a subscriber to Pinnacle Digest’s weekly email newsletter, you’ll receive information focused on Canada’s small and micro-cap market. It’s not your typical content provided by the mainstream media as we cover topics they often ignore…  

Virtually every piece of content we publish has a venture capital slant to it. If that doesn’t interest you, we’re going to be a bore.

No matter how global the issue at hand, we like to 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  

Additionally, the PD email newsletter includes biased reports on small or micro-cap investment opportunities within the energy, technology, mining and biotech sectors. These are known as our Featured Companies and they are clients and sponsors of PinnacleDigest.com (they’re how we generate revenue). 

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.

High Risk

Since inception, PD’s focus has been on high risk investment opportunities in the development or exploratory stages. These are not suitable investments for most investors. Likely, the majority of investors would consider these companies to not be sensible investments. And that’s fair. They’re more like gambles than investments. Most micro-cap companies inevitably fail and lose all or most of their value in time… but a few rare ones strike it big, and that’s what keeps us coming back.

Our passion for the Canadian small and micro-cap market (consisting of companies on the TSX, TSX Venture and CSE) has encouraged us to track trends that very few, if any, publications follow. For example: The Best Time to Buy the TSX Venture is Now

Our content is often focused on commodities, potentially disruptive technology, monetary policy and geopolitics. We believe that each one of these topics are key drivers behind the ebbs and flows of small and micro-cap stocks. The content provided in our newsletter is consistently contrarian (or at least not of popular opinion). Here’s one for you: That’s All She Wrote for Canadian Oil

“Active micro-cap investors will lose money, on most of their bets. These speculative investments are most certainly not for everyone. There are very few winners in this game. However, if you’re fortunate enough to find a multi-bagger, you’ll likely be hooked on micro-caps.”

– Aaron Hoddinott, Managing Director of Pinnacle Digest

Before The Street

Pinnacle Digest takes a generalist approach to its content, and when deciding which companies to work with and cover in our newsletter (sponsors).  

With a sector bias toward early-stage and potentially disruptive technology, and natural resource opportunities, the primary content goal of Pinnacle Digest is to get ahead of stories before ‘The Street’.

Whether it’s a large gold discovery in Timmins, Ontario, or the potential investing impacts of technological singularity, PD also aims to cover stories that could redefine regions and human behaviour.  We like to make content about unusual things…

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 small and micro-cap market (the focus of Pinnacle Digest) is merely an arena for calculated gambles.  

Investors should use our reports and weekly newsletter as a starting point to do additional, independent research. Education is key when investing, particularly in the small and micro-cap market. Pinnacle Digest and its authors are not registered broker-dealers or financial advisors. Before investing in any securities, you should consult with your financial advisor and a registered broker-dealer.
