About Under the Radar Report
Richard Hemming and Caroline Mark founded Under the Radar Report in 2011 to provide independent, fundamental research in the exciting and under researched area of Small Caps.
Our focus continues to be on ASX Small Caps and we actively cover about 100 Small Caps at any one time. We also launched Blue Chip Value in 2008. This report provides subscribers with a one-stop shop of the top 40 Blue chip stocks.
Richard is an experienced finance analyst, stock broker and financial journalist, having worked for over 25 years in the finance sector. He had always wanted to start a research newsletter focussed purely on Small Caps because they were simply not covered with any regularity by stockbrokers because they were too small. Small Caps require diligent research and follow up, and although a newspaper covers a 'hot story' and an investor might buy, when do they sell? The lack of quality research on Small Caps was why Richard started Under the Radar Report with Caroline.
There was no regular or quality analysis on Small Caps available to the general public, and as an investor, unless you wanted to or could do it yourself, it just wasn't available so you were investing blind.
Every orchestra needs a corporate team to get them on stage, playing to an audience in a concert hall. Caroline is the co-founder of Under the Radar Report with Richard. It is a team in every way and Caroline and Richard are married with two children.
Caroline edited subject notes at the Securities Institute of Australia (now FinSia), and studied finance there as well as a Master of Arts from University of NSW. She then changed sectors and worked at the Sydney Symphony and then the National Gallery in London before moving back into finance and starting Under the Radar Report with Richard.
Caroline is responsible for our Australian Financial Securities Licence (AFSL 409518) which gives Under the Radar Report the authority to provide general stock advice to Australians. She manages the website, marketing and customer service team.

What does Under the Radar Report do?
Research and stock picking. This is what we spend our time doing:
We find quality ASX Small Caps
We recommend between 12-24 new Small Cap stocks a year. Our analyst team hunt through the ASX companies with a market cap of between $50-$600m to find stocks that are undervalued, unknown and have the potential to really grow. We constantly review each company, it's results, share price moves and announcements and interview key management to keep up to date with all aspects of the stock. We continue to monitor and update subscribers on a stock until we sell. We give clear Buy and Speculative Buy recommendations making it easy to know when to buy and when to sell your shares.
Independent advice always
Richard Hemming and Caroline Mark own Under the Radar Report. We are not affiliated with any stockbrokers or investment advisers, whose advice can be self-serving because it is based on corporate fees and commissions. Nor are we paid by the small companies for exposure so we are not PR. We are independent. Subscribers pay for our research annually or monthly and that is how we are paid and maintain our independence.
Buying and Selling shares
Always the hardest thing to do. Our analysts review each company, watch the market and screens to time our Sell/Take Profit recommendations.
A Portfolio Approach
We run a paper portfolio so you can see how to run a portfolio, which shares to buy, how many, and how Small Cap Portfolio has been very successful in outperforming the market.
In addition to our Small Cap Stock Report we also deliver a fortnightly Blue Chip Value Report that is delivered every second Friday morning.
Our Blue Chip Value Report is designed to complement our Small Cap Report making it easy for Australian investors to manage their entire share portfolio with Under the Radar.
Our Blue Chip Value Report provides Price Targets. You can’t afford to miss our quantitative analysis and fundamental research, telling you where our analysts agree the share price will be in 12-months. It is in one quick and easy to read table which makes your buying and selling of shares clear and straight forward with our Buy/Sell and Hold recommendations.
