Jumpstart your OTC investing!

Access our research and an online database with 400+ meaningful OTC stocks

What is our database about?

Our new database has many benefits for OTC investors, including these:

You can see most of the meaningful OTC companies instantly.

The OTC market is large and notoriously filled with companies which are not attractive for investment. During our time in the market, we have compiled a database featuring only the companies we believe should deserve the attention of the investors. Thus, investors do not have to go through the 7,000+ stocks in the market. They can jumpstart their research with our database of over 400 stocks.

Even the most seasoned investors can miss attractive OTC opportunities just because of the sheer size of the market. With this database this should not happen.

We have fundamental data.

The database features fundamental data through which one can screen the stocks. This is making it easier to start using the database. There is also price data which allows you to screen for interesting price action in various time ranges. For many dark companies featured in the database, we also have financials, thus making it easier for investors to navigate this part of the OTC market.

We are also looking to expand the fundamental data set over time.

We have comments.

For each stock in the database, we provide our own commentary. This allows investors to quickly grasp the context of the company. We also provide any interesting URL links connecting to other research etc. The database also allows you to leave a comment, interact and share information.


Svenda's Manual began as a project of Jan Svenda, who ran his own self-published newsletter for two years. Since then, he joined forces with other investors.

I started my OTC newsletter in 2017. During that time, I went through the OTC market many times, amassing knowledge of many meaningful OTC stocks. For a year I was also working with OTC-focused fund manager on various legal situations. I approach investing from the deep value angle. I am also intensely interested in short-selling.

I am a UK based value investor managing my own capital. In recent years I have become increasingly interested in the OTC markets due to an abundance of intriguing investment opportunities to be found there.

In 2018 I founded the website Elementaryvalue.com to write about investing and stocks, the majority of my work is focused on OTC stocks including dark pink-sheets and grey market issues. The vast proportion of my free time is currently spent scouring the OTC markets in search of interesting investment opportunities.
