KRO Favorites Dashboard (Free)
This is your gateway to unrestricted content available at Kaiser Research Online.

Kaiser Research Online (KRO) is a membership fee based portal that features all Australian and Canadian listed resource companies presented through corporate profiles made accessible by alphabetical list or via the KRO Search Engine which allows the user to combine company and project level criteria to search KRO with complex queries. It is designed as a Do-It-Yourself research platform for sophisticated investors.
John Kaiser uses this platform to identify "bottom-fish", companies that have been unable to develop an uptrend, usually due to one or more "missing pieces". Some are beyond management's control while others are not. To qualify as a "bottom-fish" there needs to be an underlying story that could launch an uptrend capable of delivering 500% plus gains from the "bottom" if the missing pieces get fixed.
The Bottom-Fish Collection can change throughout the year but gets refreshed during the last two months when resource juniors typically bottom out after a seasonal downturn and the pressure from tax-loss dumping, capitulation selling and institutional window-dressing ends.
The USD $450 Annual Individual Membership gives access to the research platform, the Bottom-Fish Collection, and the Kaiser Research Online Slack forum where John Kaiser posts links to material published at KRO as well as on the fly comments about companies and big picture topics. Notification of new KRO content is only provided through Slack, not email. Members can also post, provided they respect the KRO Slack Conduct Rules. KRO Slack is where members can collaborate and discuss big picture and company specific topics.
Favorites are generally graduates of the Bottom-Fish Collection, usually after doubling or tripling from their bottom-fish level as missing pieces fall into place. A new set of Favorites is confirmed at the start of each year. Favorites can be closed out during the year and new Favorites added. Favorites and related KRO content except news releases are unrestricted. With a few exceptions everything else is behind a paywall.
KRO is not compensated by any companies directly or indirectly. The business model is membership fees paid to access the DIY research platform and the Bottom-Fish Collection. By turning Bottom-Fish graduates into free Favorites we accomplish two goals: 1) we expose the emerging junior to a broader audience as liquidity improves and the underlying story gains traction, delivering potentially bigger gains for KRO members who accumulated during the less liquid "bottom-fish" period, and, 2) the hope that continuing success of Favorites encourages some to become paying KRO members and gain ground floor access to future Favorites.
At some point the KRO membership fee will increase significantly to limit the membership pool and preserve the value of access to the bottom-Fish Collection. However, when that happens everybody with a paid up annual individual membership will be grandfathered to renew indefinitely at the $450 annual rate as long as they do not let their membership lapse.
Favorites Center The Favorites Center features a list of Favorites and their performance to date. Beneath the list each Favorite is presented in alphabetical order as a snapshot of basic information including long and short term charts, an overview of the story, a list of the more recent news releases, and a complete list of any comments about the Favorite posted to KRO.
Favorites Daily Market Activity The Favorites Daily Market Activity presents the daily trading activity of each Favorite. This is generally not updated until 8 pm pst. Beneath the market activity table we provide a snapshot of every Favorite for which a news release or KRO comment has been published during the past 7 days, along with links to those news releases and comments. Beneath that we display the entirety of any KRO comments about the Favorites.
Favorites What's Next The Favorites What's Next report is similar to the Favorites Center except that instead of the story overview it provides a table of upcoming project milestones, a brief description of what we are waiting for, and what it might mean for upside expectation potential. This report is intended for parties already familiar with the story fundamentals and looking for guidance on what to expect next.
Favorites Index The Favorites Index report shows how the Favorites Collection is performing and also how each Favorite is performing relative to the Favorites group.
Kaiser Watch Archive The Kaiser Watch Archive is a catalog of Kaiser Watch episodes which follow the format of a general topic question, Favorites specific questions, and a teaser Bottom-Fish Collection related question. The corporate profile for any KRO company provides a link to the YouTube episode where a question specific to a company begins.
KRO Profile How To
KaiserResearch.com is an online information and research portal that covers all the Canadian and Australian resource listings. What this means is that we assemble basic corporate and project level information about each company which becomes the basis for the data set to which the KRO Search Engine is applied (see Search Engine How to use). Each company has a dedicated KRO web page we call the Profile which serves as a digital folder and gateway for Do-It-Yourself Researchers. The KRO Company Profile page is always restricted to active KRO members. There is a stripped down sister Free Corporate Profile web page which is unrestricted (free to the public) because it contains the embedded Google Earth maps for projects for which we have tracked down a reliable or approximate location. But the KRO Company Profile page is what you get when you select the company from the drop-down list in the KRO header or click the Profile link in the dashboard that shows up in the KRO Search display results and many other KRO resources. It is a very long page consisting of various sections. The image aboves offers a sense of how much stuff is in a KRO Profile. What follows is a How To tour of these sections.
