StockGuru Blog: Clearly Canadian Clearly Rocks with Hot Financials; Sales Are UP for 6 Months Reversing a 10 Year Trend

Thursday, August 31st, 2006

Clearly Canadian (OTCBB – CCBEF)

Turnaround is Underway – Link Here for SEC August 31, 2006, 6-K Filing

Highlights of this report are:

- 2nd qtr Revenues up 10.5% from 2,418,000 to 2,673,000

- 6 mos. Revenues up 7.8% from 4,058,000 to 4,375,000

- Re-Launch of core brand only took place during the last month of 2nd qtr and product was being driven into Dr. Pepper/7UP distribution network, so no real help there yet. The gains have been driven by the Non-Carbonated sales which are up over 100% from 747,000 to 1,599,000 for 6 mos. and management “anticipates continued growth” in this segment.

- 2nd qtr gross margins were up to 28.5% from 26.6%, (6 mos. numbers hurt by the liquidation of the old product line at a discount.) so managements initiatives beginning to take hold.

- Ramp up for NBA/MVP Steve Nash marketing initiatives underway

- Debt Free – $5.3 million in cash

- New Products on the way for the hot energy and vitamin markets

- Fast growing (100%) private label/co-branding division

- Incurred cost for proposed Realty Television Show.

Stay tuned for more details on this much anticipated Turnaround Story!

Tasco Holdings Files to Change Name to Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc.

Company Has 15,000 Sq. Ft. Stem Cell Banking Facility

Tasco Holdings International Inc. (OTCBB: THII)

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Aug. 28, 2006–Tasco Holdings International (OTCBB:THII – News) announced today that it has filed to change its name to Bio-Matrix Scientific Group Inc. This move is in concert with the recent acquisition of assets from BMXP Holdings Inc. (symbol: BXPH) previously announced.

A company spokesperson said, “We are in the process of changing the Company’s name to continue the Bio-Matrix brand in the adult stem cell banking arena.”

The Company’s Chairman & CEO David Koos stated, “We are excited about the Company’s future with the continuation of Bio-Matrix’ recognition in stem cell banking and stem cell / tissue management instruments. We believe the Company’s new 15,000 sq. ft. facility should be completed shortly sometime in early October 2006.

August 28th CEOcast Weekly Newsletter

Monday, August 28th, 2006

08/28/2006

VOLUME 253

Companies featured in the current edition of the newsletter: ADSX, AOOR, ARSC, CLRI, CPPT, ENZ, FLWE, FSN, HMWM, HSOA, HYTM, IMMG, NTRN, PTCH, SFP, SWTS, USAT

It was a week of consolidation for the stock market.  After posting their best gains in several months a week earlier, all of the major indexes retreated slightly on low volume and volatility. The Dow lost 97 points, trimming its year-to-date gain to 6.2%, while the S&P 500 gave back 7 points and is now up only 3.8% for the year. The tech-heavy Nasdaq continued to underperform as it lost 24 points to increase its year-to-date loss to 2.9%. Meanwhile, the small-cap Russell 2000 fell by 12 points, reducing its year-to-date gains to 3.9%.

The biggest news of the week was the continued weakness in housing data.  On Wednesday, existing home sales for July were reported down 4.1%.  Thursday brought the report that new home sales had fallen a similar 4.3% in July.  Inventory of unsold home in each category rose sharply, and the median price increase in each was up less than 1% over the past year.  There are concerns that economic growth is slowing substantially, and that a weak housing sector will curtail consumer spending via a negative wealth effect. Crude-oil continues to be in the spotlight as tropical storm Ernesto was upgraded to a  Category 1 Hurricane this morning. The storm  has the potential to further strengthen and reach theGulf of Mexico, holding out the potential to disrupt production of crude (see additional coverage of the storm below). Additionally, the Iranian situation remains uncertain. As a result, the benchmark October contract closed at $72.51 a barrel, a 0.6% gain for the week

Trading is again expected to be light this week, with few earnings reports of significance. Dollar General Corp. (NYSE: DG), H. J. Heinz Company (NYSE: HNZ), and retailer Tiffany & Co. (NYSE: TIF) all report earnings Thursday morning. Thursday after the close, H&R Block, Inc. (NYSE: HRB) posts results, while Russian mobile telecommunications provider, Vimpel-Communications (NYSE: VIP), announces results on Friday morning.  On Thursday, Starbucks (NASDAQ: SBUX) will release August revenues, which could be more closely watched after disappointing July results. Friday, General Motors (NYSE:GM) and Ford (NYSE: F) report monthly car sales results.

The economic calendar will be filled with more significant events. On Tuesday morning, August Consumer Confidence will be released. Later that day, investors will pay close attention to FOMC minutes from the August 8th meeting for any insight into the Fed’s stance on inflation and interest rates. Wednesday marks the release of Weekly Crude Inventories and the preliminary Second Quarter GDP. Thursday, Weekly Jobless Claims will be announced, along with July Personal Income and Spending, July Factory Orders and August Chicago PMI. Finally, Friday brings the August Employment Report, July Construction Spending, and the August ISM Index. Dallas Fed President Fisher will speak at a luncheon in San Antonio on Tuesday and will discuss real estate on Wednesday in Dallas. Meanwhile, Fed Chairman Bernanke will speak at Clemson University on Thursday.

With Ernesto upgraded to a Category 1 Hurricane that was forecast to grow to a Category 2 storm expected to reach Cuba within the next 36 hours, shares of Home Solutions of America, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSOA), a provider of recovery, restoration and rebuilding/remodeling services, could receive a boost this week. The storm, which forecasters say may enter the Gulf of Mexico just as New Orleans marks the first anniversary of the devastating Katrina, which struck on August 29 last year, killing over 1,500 people in Louisiana and Mississippi and leaving hundreds of thousands homeless, could create a substantial amount of additional work for HSOA if it makes landfall in the U.S. by the end. While it is premature to suggest that Ernesto will cause the same amount of damage as last year’s storms or even reach the U.S., note that last year shares of Home Solutions doubled in less than a one month period beginning at virtually the same point in time last year (the final week of August), which represents the start of the peak hurricane period. Shares could be even more volatile this year, as approximately 40% of the float is short. While sentiment in the name has been lopsidedly negative, helped by a dramatic increase in short interest (rose approximately another 600,000 shares in August to 12.6 million), the stock posted small increases in price last week for three consecutive days, suggesting that sentiment could be finally turning. Last week, the company said that its subsidiary, Home Solutions Restoration of Louisiana, and a strategic partner had been awarded a contract valued at $5 million for restoration and rebuilding services in the historic French Market of New Orleans, reflecting our belief that rebuilding activity in the Gulf Region remains robust. The stock closed at $5.66, up 7 cents on the week.

Hythiam, Inc. (NASDAQ: HYTM), a healthcare services management company that licenses the PROMETA™ physiological protocols designed to treat substance dependence, has expanded access to PROMETA in Orange County, California by entering into a licensing agreement with Beau Monde Programs to initially offer its PROMETA protocols at Beau Monde’s flagship Newport Beach location, an ultra-exclusive residential treatment facility. Beau Monde Programs also operates private treatment centers in Laguna Beach and Hollywood catering to celebrities, pro athletes, executives, physicians and other high profile clientele. Orange County is a key geographic region to Hythiam and the addition of Beau Monde Programs as company’s newest licensee will help provide increased patient access for PROMETA in the Southern California region. With the company continuing to drive increased revenue from key licensees as a result of growing awareness of the protocols, the impact of new licensees should become increasingly significant. The stock ended the week at $5.24, up 1 cent.

Enzo Biochem, Inc. (NYSE: ENZ), a developer of innovative health care products based on molecular biology and genetic engineering techniques, said last week it had been granted two patent interferences designating an allowable Enzo patent application against patents held by Chiron Diagnostics and Princeton University for nucleic acid detection. An interference is a proceeding instituted by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office when an issued patent and an allowed patent application claim essentially the same invention. The purpose of the proceeding is to determine who is the first inventor and who will be granted patent rights to the invention. In the two interferences, Enzo is the senior party, since its original 1983 patent filing pre-dates those of Chiron and Princeton. This nucleic acid technology is the basis for several significant products in clinical diagnostics and in the life sciences field which are currently marketed or licensed by various commercial companies. According to trade reports, industry-wide annual sales of diagnostic products utilizing this technology are estimated to exceed $100 million in the United States alone. Among these products are the “VERSANT® Branched DNA (bDNA) Assays” sold by Bayer HealthCare. This is the second significant patent-related news the company has announced in the past three months. Previously, shares surged more than 50% after the company said in an 8-K that it had been granted a key patent for the detection of genetic material by polynucleotide probes. Note that August short interest rose more than 800,000 shares to approximately 20% of the float. Shares gained 42 cents week to close at $12.43.

Fusion Telecommunications International, Inc. (AMEX: FSN), a global Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service provider, entered into a strategic partnership with Jinti, a rapidly growing Chinese community services site that attracts in excess of 3 million unique visitors from China each month. As part of the agreement, Fusion will market its Efonica brand of VoIP services throughout the Jinti website. In addition to category exclusivity, the Efonica service offerings will be integrated into Jinti’s consumer registration process. As visitors register for Jinti services, they will be prompted to register for Efonica’s offering. With a growing Internet community, presently numbering over 120 Million people online, China represents a key market for Fusion in the Asian Region and a tremendous opportunity for the company to continue to grow its worldwide community of users. This appears to be another cost-effective way for the company to acquire subscribers. Note that according to an article in Broadband Business, an industry trade publication, it has taken FSN less than 60 days to acquire 400,000 subscribers at less than $1 per subscriber, while it took Skype, which was ultimately acquired by eBay at a cost of approximately $2.5 billion, 51 days to acquire its first 100,000 subscribers. The article also noted that it costs Vonage $239 to acquire a customer. The stock closed at $2.00, up 3 cents on the week.

Applied Digital (NASDAQ: ADSX), a leading provider of identification and security technology, announced that its VeriChip Corporation subsidiary made the first sale of a fully integrated system for infant protection, wander prevention, staff duress and asset protection to be installed in the new, state-of-the-art Brampton Civic Hospital, in Brampton, Ontario, scheduled to open in the Fall of 2007.This system will result in revenue of approximately $750,000. Additional sales should follow in the future as the healthcare market seeks a fully integrated solution like this that fits into other systems for security and nurse call. Separately, ADSX refinanced its outstanding debt by entering into a $13.5 million non-convertible debt financing transaction with Laurus Master Fund, Ltd. and repaying $12.7 million to Satellite Senior Income Fund, LLC. The stock ended the week at $1.65, up 4 cents.

Clearant, Inc. (OTCBB: CLRI), the developer of the patent-protected CLEARANT PROCESS® for pathogen inactivation, should receive additional publicity in the near future as FDA recently shut down a North Carolina tissue firm due to “serious deficiencies” in its processing, donor screening and record-keeping. This is the second scandal in less than a year in the booming tissue transplant industry after last year’s Biomedical Tissue Services fiasco, when the New Jersey company was accused of using stolen bodies and of shipping nearly 20,000 potentially tainted body parts. It is important to remember that improperly processed or poorly tested tissue can lead to infections like hepatitis and AIDS, or even death.  Meanwhile, it is still too early to tell how big this tissue scandal will be, but it should increase doctor and patient interest in the CLEARANT Process-treated tissues as this patented sterilization process is clinically proven to deactivate all known pathogens resulting in safety and peace of mind for doctors, patients and their families. The stock gained 5 cents last week to close at $0.46.

CompuPrint, Inc. (OTCBB:CPPT), an energy technology company that combines satellite-based technology with traditional exploration services, which does business through Terra Insight Corporation, its wholly owned subsidiary, filed Form 10-Q for the second quarter ended June 30, 2006. The company’s plan of operation for the next twelve months is to focus on obtaining royalty or ownership rights in projects on which it provides professional services. This emphasis on ownership rights has decreased the company’s ability to generate current cash income for services rendered. While CPPT had one paying customer during the first quarter of 2006, the company had no such paying customers during the second quarter of 2006. However, the company has been negotiating with a major foreign international oil company to render services on a cash basis. The stock ended the week at $0.19, down 1 cent.

Junior energy company Fellows Energy Ltd. (OTCBB: FLWE) filed Form 10-Q with financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2006. Revenue for the quarter was $283,000 which represents a substantial increase from none last year and $61,000 during the first quarter of the year. More importantly, Fellows’ two main projects, namely Carbon County and Creston, continue to be re-worked with production steadily increasing. For example, the company doubled production from the Carbon County field to 40 million cubic feet of natural gas per month in less than 6 months after acquiring it in March. Shares ended the week at $0.18, down 4 cent.

IMPART Media Group, Inc. (OTCBB: IMMG), an innovator in the creation of out-of-home digital advertising content and information network management, announced second quarter results with revenue for the quarter increasing to $1.4 million as compared to $1.0 million in the year earlier period. The company had a net loss of $3.1 million, or $.14 per share, compared to net income of $27,000, or $.01 per share in the second quarter of 2005. The difference in net loss is primarily attributable to the implementation of an aggressive growth strategy, which included the acquisition of Impart Media Advertising in New York, new technology infrastructure, and increased personnel, as well as general and administrative costs at Impart’s company headquarters in Seattle. The increase in 2006 revenue reflects the initial efforts of the company to transition its revenue base from that of a market perceived, audio-video-computer integration company to a full service, vertically integrated media public company focused on building both communications and audience reaching, out-of-home advertising & media content solutions centered around its new IQ media platform. Since its formal release in May 2006, the IQ media platform has begun to change the entire out-of-home digital advertising space, as demonstrated by several Fortune 500 companies, such as AT&T, Microsoft, Nordstrom, and many others. The stock closed the week at $1.00, down 6 cents.

USA Technologies, Inc. (OTCBB: USAT), a developer of cashless vending and energy management products, announced that its EnergyMiser energy management technology is being installed at Fort Hood Army Garrison in Texas, the largest military base in America. Fort Hood is installing VendingMisers on 600 vending machines located across the base, which is estimated to save an additional $100,000 a year in energy costs. Earlier, Fort Hood had already installed approximately 100 VendingMisers, saving an estimated $15,000 a year. USAT continues to see strong demand for its EnergyMiser products as other U.S. Military installs recently completed and underway include the Adjunct General’s Department, Texas, the Texas Air National Guard, Burnsville Air Force Base, the GSA Services Center, Tampa, the U.S. Naval Academy, the Naval Exchange Service, and the Naval Base Coronado and San Clement Island base, California . In addition, Emerging Growth Equities, an independent Philadelphia-based broker-dealer, initiated coverage of the company with a Buy Rating and $15 price target. The report noted that “USA Technologies has received a contract from MasterCard to deploy the company’s e-Port® with “Tap & Go” for contactless credit cards on 1,000 Coca-Cola vending machines in FY 07 Q1. Success with this program will open up one of the largest cash-based commercial segments in the U.S. to the use of credit cards. There are 8 million vending machines in the U.S. generating $45.0B in revenues. The credit card industry sees this as the next frontier to grow their transaction volumes. This will be facilitated by contactless credit cards of which 10 million have already been issued by AMEX, Visa and MasterCard. There are 30,000 merchants including CVS, 7-Eleven and McDonald’s currently equipped for these small ticket transactions. This technology speeds customer service and increases average transaction size in vending machines and coolers.” The stock ended the week at $7.40, down 15 cents.

The company has grown sales to $91,000 for the first six months of 2006 from no sales during the same period last year. Sales should greatly increase in the future as over the next several weeks, the company will begin the initial production of the all-new “ChocKoala,” a delicious high protein beverage marketed for children and packed with immunity boosting ingredients, and a larger-sized “Chocolate Immunity Infusion” targeted for adults. Shortly thereafter, Sweet Success will produce “Ultra Greens Plus,” a health beverage packed with superfoods, and “Glucasafe,” a low glycemic raspberry flavored white and green tea drink with no artificial sweeteners.

Additionally, the company has completed a $3.3 million private placement with accredited investors to support its growth plans. With this new financing in place, the company now has access to the resources to accelerate marketing and developmental activities to capitalize on the growing demand for Sweet Success-branded products. Shares ended the week at $0.86, down 12 cents.

Junior oil and gas company Apollo Resources International, Inc. (OTCBB: AOOR) filed Form 10-Q for its second quarter ended June 30, 2006. The company recorded quarterly revenue of $10.1 million compared to just $42,000 for the same period in 2005. The increase reflects the company’s acquisition of its LNG businesses in December of 2005, which contributed $6.1 million of LNG sales for the second quarter of 2006. In addition, AOOR’s bio diesel production and sales subsidiary contributed $2.9 million of revenue during the second quarter of 2006.

Value of Contract to VINAVICO and Cavico Approximately USD $32 Million

LOS ANGELES, CA and HANOI, VIETNAM–(MARKET WIRE)–Aug 23, 2006 — Cavico Corporation (Other OTC:CVCP.PK – News), a Vietnamese company working in the fields of infrastructure development, including the construction of hydropower facilities, dams, bridges, roads, mines and urban buildings throughout Viet Nam and the Pacific Rim, today announced that it has completed more than 60% of the Headrace tunnel for the Buon Kuop Hydropower plant.

The Buon Kuop hydropower plant is located between the Cu Jut and Krong Kno districts of Dak Lak province, Northwest of Ho Chi Minh City.

The country’s impending ascension to the World Trade Organization is likely to provide an additional boost to economic growth and a further acceleration in the country’s current infrastructure construction boom. The aggressive development of Vietnam’s energy, transportation, and urban infrastructure is absolutely essential to the country’s ability to compete internationally, and this aggressive build-out is creating huge growth opportunities for infrastructure construction companies such as Cavico.

August 21st CEOcast Weekly Newsletter

Monday, August 21st, 2006

08/21/2006

VOLUME 252

Companies featured in the current edition of the newsletter: ADSX, ALRX, ARSC, CDGT, CDSS, EMIS, ENZ, FMTI, FSN, GNBT, HMWM, HSOA, HYTM, IMMG, ISON, ITRO, ITUI, IVOI, LNXGF, NTRN, NTST, PTCH, QTXB, RGEN, SCLL, SLS, SOG, STIY, TAGS, UDTT, USAT, ZIOP

What a difference a week makes. Benign reports on inflation helped increase investor confidence that the Fed will successfully be able to engineer a “soft landing”, helping all of the indexes to post their best gains in several months. The Dow gained 293 and is now up 6.2% for the year while the S&P 500 added nearly 36 points to push its year-to-date gains to 4.3%. At the same time, the tech-heavy Nasdaq finally outperformed the other indexes as it gained 106 points, or 5.2%, to reduce its year-to-date loss to 1.9%. Meanwhile, the small-cap Russell 2000 rose by almost 33 points, pushing its year-to-date gains to 5.7%.

Last week’s main catalysts were unmistakably the favorable PPI and CPI reports which hinted that inflation may be under control and the Fed may be able to forego additional rate hikes. On Tuesday, it was reported that the core-PPI for July actually fell 0.3% as opposed to the consensus estimate of a 0.2% increase. Then on Wednesday, core-CPI showed a 0.2% increase after four consecutive months of 0.3% increases. Helping the markets was also a pullback in oil prices due to the cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah. Crude oil ended the week at $71.10 or 4.4% lower.

What should investors look for this week? On the earnings front, home-improvement giant Lowe’s (NYSE: LOW) reports results on Monday morning while home-builder Toll Brothers (NYSE: TOL) announces results on Tuesday before the bell. Tuesday after the bell, Medtronic (NYSE: MDT) will report results. Wednesday morning, Tech Data (NASDAQ: TECD) and Smithfield Foods (NYSE: SFD) release earnings. Thursday morning, Hormel Foods (NYSE: HRL) reports results.

The economic calendar will be light this week. On Wednesday, July Existing Home Sales and Weekly Crude Inventory are released. Perhaps the most significant event on the economic calendar is July Durable Goods orders, which are scheduled to be announced on Thursday, and are expected to remain flat. July New Home Sales and Weekly Jobless Claims will also be announced on Thursday. Both Atlanta’s Fed President Guynn and Chicago’s Fed President Moscow will speak on the economy on Tuesday in their respective cities, while Fed Chairman Bernanke will be speaking at the Fed symposium in Jackson Hole on Friday.

Enzo Biochem, Inc. (NYSE: ENZ), developer of innovative health care products based on molecular biology and genetic engineering techniques, announced that follow-up studies of its experimental gene-based HIV treatment, StealthVector HGTV43, show that the drug’s antisense RNA retains a long-term presence in the body. The treatment is designed to produce immune cells called CD4+ cells, in order to slow progression of the HIV virus that causes AIDS. The company said 12 months after completing an early-stage clinical trial, genetic material from its gene medicine was still present in all five subjects involved. At the 48-month mark, antisense RNA remained present in 3 out of 4 subjects, and one of the three remaining patients retained the genetic material at 60 months. The company called the continued presence of the genetic material significant, especially in bone marrow, where the immune system’s white blood cells are made. Enzo Biochem is currently sponsoring a Phase I/II study at the University of California to continue the clinical evaluation of this StealthVector HGTV43 gene construct for HIV-1 infection. The stock gained 87 cents last week to close at $12.01.

Hythiam, Inc. (NASDAQ: HYTM), a healthcare services management company that licenses the PROMETA™ physiological protocols designed to treat substance dependence, continued its expansion into key metropolitan areas as the company signed two significant licensing deals last week. Hythiam first announced that it has entered into a licensing agreement with The Right Step, the largest private chemical dependency treatment services provider in the Southwest with headquarters in Houston and 23 locations throughout Texas, Louisiana, and New Mexico. Although Hythiam has initially licensed the use of the PROMETA Protocols to The Right Step’s Houston facility, it is expected that if the protocol proves as successful as it has at other cites, the license may be expanded to the other facilities as well. Hythiam also announced that its PROMETA protocols have been licensed for use at the first Chicago area licensee, The Millennium Center. The Millennium Center was founded by Gail Basch, MD, and Ann Foster, who is also the founder of the Millennium Counseling Center, one of Chicago’s leading counseling centers for addiction. With the company continuing to drive increased revenue from key licensees as a result of growing awareness of the protocols, the impact of new licensees should become increasingly significant. The stock ended the week at $5.23, down 3 cents.

What should have been an upbeat week for investors in Home Solutions of America, Inc. (NASDAQ: HSOA), a provider of recovery, restoration and rebuilding/remodeling services, turned into another disappointing outcome, as management again failed in its attempt to garner the confidence of the investment community. The outcome should have been different after the company posted solid second quarter results for the period ended June 30, 2006 with 90% sales growth resulting in record revenue of $24.2 million for the quarter. Although quarterly revenue came in slightly below the lone analyst estimate of $25 million, HSOA comfortably exceeded the EPS estimate as net income jumped 320% to a record $4.4 million, or $0.11 per diluted share ($0.09 per diluted share excluding non-recurring items). HSOA also reaffirmed its previous 2006 revenue guidance of $160-165 million and EPS of $0.56-$0.60 and while this guidance is heavily back-end loaded (EPS for the first six months was roughly $0.19), in 2005, the company earned twice as much in the second half of its fiscal year as it did in the first six months. So why did the heavily-shorted stock (37% of the float was short, which we believe may have increased since short interest was reported in July) sell-off after breaking through $7 which is a key resistance level? Simply, the company stumbled through its earnings call, providing vague guidance when it needed to be specific. While the company announced that it completed a strong month of July, it did not disclose the amount of revenue it generated. We suspect that revenue for the month of July exceeded HSOA’s revenue for the entire second quarter based upon our conversations with parties doing business in the New Orleans areas. The company also provided a series of explanations for the impact of the acquisition of Fireline Restoration on its 2006 results that defy understanding. It said that it was not adjusting its guidance for the acquisition until it completes the audit of Fireline (expected within 60 days), although it is hard to believe that a company that is as thorough in its due diligence as HSOA is not highly knowledgeable about Fireline’s financials, especially after paying consideration approximating 20% of the value of HSOA. Why the caution? We suspect it may have something to do with the role that the company’s attorneys are playing in its communication strategy (class action suits have been filed against them). Unfortunately, while we believe the company is well on its way to posting a tremendous third quarter, the stock is likely to remain range-bound until it provides greater visibility to investors. The stock ended the week at $5.59, down 61 cents.

Volume Alert: Shares of Isonics Corporation (NASDAQ: ISON), developer of innovative solutions for the homeland security and semiconductor markets, traded over 6 times the average volume as the company announced preliminary results for its semiconductor segment for the quarter ended July 31, 2006. Revenue for this segment was approximately $2.9 million, a 260% increase as compared to last year’s quarter. As a result of the increasing revenue and improved operating efficiencies, the company also expects to report positive EBITDA for its semiconductor segment of approximately $170,000 for the past quarter. Management attributed the rapid growth to ISON’s investment into the high-growth 300mm silicon wafer market over 18 months ago as it is beginning to generate positive operating results. Additionally, the company’s backlog is the strongest in its history and is expected to support continued segment revenue growth in the coming quarters. Shares gained 17 cents last week, closing at $0.92.

The name of Repligen Corporation (NASDAQ: RGEN), a biopharmaceutical company committed to being the leader in the development of novel therapeutics for profound neuropsychiatric disorders and autoimmune disease, popped up several times last week in the media following the July 31 ruling by a federal judge that its lawsuit seeking royalties from ImClone Systems for its cancer drug Erbitux could proceed. With legendary investor George Soros holding an equity stake in the company, shares could continue to rally as legal maneuvers continue. Overall, the stock gained 26 cents, or 8.7%, last week and closed at $3.26.

Life sciences company Forbes Medi-Tech Inc. (NASDAQ: FMTI) announced its financial results for its second quarter ended June 30, 2006. Reported revenues increased 32% to $1.7 million and the company maintains its revenue guidance for 2006 of $7-7.5 million. Additional highlights of the past quarter included the launch of the first cholesterol-lowering cheddar cheese with Reducol at UK Wal-Mart/ASDA, the launch of a range of Reducol-based products at Netherlands’s largest retailer, Albert Heijn, and the strengthening presence in Europe with Forbes-Fayrefield Ltd. venture to expand distribution of Reducol-based products in continental Europe. Furthermore, The FMTI’s Phase II trial for its cholesterol-lowering drug, FM-VP4, is on track for completion for the end of the third quarter with top-line results anticipated to be released in the fourth quarter. Shares ended the week at $1.84, up 1 cent.

Fusion Telecommunications International, Inc. (AMEX: FSN), provider of voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and other Internet services in Asia, the Middle East, Africa, the Caribbean, and Latin America, reported second quarter 2006 results for the period ended June 30, 2006 with total revenue of $10.5 million representing the third consecutive increase in sequential quarterly revenue (up 10.7% over first quarter 2006). Fusion also announced that in two months since launching its new Efonica VoIP service, it has registered more than 400,000 subscribers, having added an additional 150,000 subscribers in the last two weeks alone. Over the coming quarters, the company will focus on driving revenue from its growing subscriber base, which it expects to become an increasingly significant portion of total revenue over time. Fusion intends to continue acquiring new subscribers in a cost-effective manner as well as marketing paid value-added services to these subscribers. New VoIP subscribers are likely to shape investors’ perceptions of the prospects for the company more than carrier service revenue, which makes up most of the company’s revenue base today. Shares ended the week at $1.97, down 41 cents.

Netsmart Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: NTST), a leading provider of enterprise-wide software for health and human services organizations, announced that it has been awarded a contract totaling nearly $1.9 million by the California Regional Mental Health System Coalition Joint Powers Authority (JPA). The five-year agreement calls for the use of Netsmart’s Avatar Practice Management and Clinician Workstation software by nine county mental health organizations in the JPA to facilitate key processes, including client scheduling and tracking, clinical assessment, treatment planning and claims authorizations. Shares were up 82 cents last week, closing at $14.85.

Generex Biotechnology Corporation (NASDAQ: GNBT), a leader in the area of buccal drug delivery, was granted a new U.S. Patent entitled Methods of Administering and Enhancing Absorption of Pharmaceutical Agents, which covers broad claims for the delivery of macromolecules via the buccal cavity of the mouth. This important new patent will augment the protection of GNBT’s proprietary RapidMist drug delivery technologies, and, by extension, company’s flagship product, Generex Oral-lyn, an oral insulin spray product for the treatment of diabetes. In addition to insulin, this also gives GNBT broad intellectual property protection for the delivery of other agents via the buccal region of the mouth. The stock closed at $1.41, up 14 cents for the week.

Applied Digital (NASDAQ: ADSX), a leading provider of identification and security technology, announced that its subsidiary VeriChip Corporation made the first sales of its Hugs infant protection system and MyCall emergency response system in Australia.

In partnership with Austco Communication Systems, its dealer outside North America for these products, VeriChip will install 2 Hugs systems and 2 MyCall systems at 4 different hospitals. Austco Communication Systems said that they expect more sales of these products in the coming months. The stock ended the week at $1.61, up 5 cents.

Tarrant Apparel Group (NASDAQ: TAGS), an innovative design and sourcing company for private label and private brand casual apparel, said sales for the second quarter ended June 30, 2006 increased 17% to approximately $59 million and the company posted its second consecutive profitable quarter thanks to an 82% increase in income from operations. Management reiterated its previous 2006 financial guidance for sales in the range of approximately $220 million to $230 million, while saying that future gross margins should be comparable to, or higher, than the company has achieved over the past six quarters. Company’s Private Label business, which designs and manufactures store-branded clothing for large retailers including Kohl’s, Macy’s, and Wal-Mart, continues to grow with most of its existing customers and TAGS is beginning to ramp up sales with new customers based on performance of earlier shipments of newly developed programs.

SLS International (AMEX: SLS), the leading provider of premium quality sound systems for professional, cinema and home entertainment markets, entered into a revolving credit agreement, with an institutional investor, to provide up to $2 million to fund certain inventory and accounts receivable. This credit facility is expected to enable the company to increase sales of its sound systems to retailers and professional customers due to strong demand for its Cinema Series loudspeaker systems and its Q Line and other Home Theater products. In the meantime, this financing will allow SLS to continue to increase sales in a manner which is non-dilutive for its shareholders. The stock ended the week at $0.30, down 3 cents.

Junior oil and gas producer Strategic Oil & Gas, Ltd. (TSX Venture: SOG) has made significant progress on its 22.5% owned multi-well program with Jed Oil in the Pinedale/Jonah area of Wyoming.

Drilling of a second well to delineate this discovery has commenced, and two additional locations permitted. Strategic is currently preparing an application to drill on 20 acre spacing on its Pinedale acreage. The downspacing would allow the drilling of up to 32 wells within the company’s current land holdings.

Multiple zone completion programs have been undertaken, with fracture stimulation and tie-ins currently being completed on both these gas wells.

The stock lost 15 cents to close the week at $1.20.

IMPART Media Group, Inc. (OTCBB: IMMG), an innovator in the creation of out-of-home digital advertising content and information network management, announced that the company will begin offering a new product, called IQ Live, as the latest addition to its popular IQ Box. The IQ Live offers digital signage users a number of options, including picture in picture, split screen, full screen television or live video feeds, mixed with pre-programmed content. The IQ Live will give IMPART’s customers an entertainment option they previously have not had, which is the ability to split live television or video feeds with their promotional content. This product fits well for a variety of digital signage users, but more specifically fulfils the needs for the hospitality industry, including restaurants, bars, and hotels. This new addition enables that industry to run live television or house feeds, just like they have previously done, but now IMPART’s clients can intersperse their own promotional content, and still not miss out on the entertainment component. The stock closed the week at $1.06, down 9 cents.

The strong revenue growth in the 2006 second quarter was primarily due to the increase in number of digital TV subscribers in the DTV operations in Nanhai, and additional contributions from advertising agency business and channel management of joint ventures operations in Guizhou.

In addition, 20 Hercules FlashBox appliances were shipped to two agencies within the Department of Defense. Citadel expects sales of Hercules to increase throughout the second half of the year as this is when it has historically received the largest portion of its annual sales order value. Additionally, the sales pipeline remains strong and the company continues to see a steady flow of requests-for-proposals and technical proofs of concepts, and the company continues to make constructive changes in its sales organization aimed at shortening the sales cycle.

Automotive pioneer ZAP will introduce a new vehicle on August 24th as the next milestone in its business plan of creating a brand and distribution network for advanced fueled micro-cars, a market the Company says has driven sales up 376 percent this past quarter on rising oil prices.

ZAP CEO Steve Schneider said that the Company is still planning out the details of the announcement, but hinted that the new ZAPCAR(TM) would be designed to open markets previously untapped in the auto industry.

Schneider noted this week that ZAP revenues for the first six months of 2006 have surpassed revenues for all of 2005. Second quarter revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2006 were $4.4 million compared to $923,000, an increase of $3.4 million or 376 percent for the same period a year ago. ZAP’s quarterly results were filed earlier this week. For more information, visit http://www.zapworld.com .

StockGuru Blog: ZAP CEO Believes ZAP Is In The Driver’s Seat

Consumers Curb Upscale Buying As Gasoline Prices, Housing Bite

Steve Schneider, CEO of ZAP, sees a very good future for alternative energy vehicles. “Every morning that I pick up a mainstream newspaper I read another article which addresses the national and personal economic consequence of $3-a-gallon gasoline. Today Forbes and the Wall Street Journal have presented an excellent composite view of the overall impact this is having on our economy. These issues are real and they are here to stay. People are cutting back because of the price of gasoline. They are NOT buying the pickup trucks and the SUV’s. They are looking at alternatives and we are the best alternative out there.”

The article on the front page of the Wall Street Journal noted that in recent weeks companies were directly impacted by consumer spending which has shifted from goods and services to gasoline. “Starbucks, Whole Foods and Williams-Sonoma — along with others such as boat maker Brunswick Corp. and specialty-sandwich chain Panera Bread Co. — have reported disappointing sales that sent their share prices lower. Restaurants catering to middle-income consumers are seeing a sales slump too,” noted the Wall Street Journal.Schneider notes, “If you look at Wal-Mart Stores, Inc. president and CEO, Lee Scott’s recent statement, even they are impacted. He said, and let me read it, and I am quoting him: ‘Some of the same issues affecting our customers – higher utility costs and gas prices – are impacting many corporations, including Wal-Mart. We find it encouraging that we continue to grow market share in food and consumables during this time.’ ” This whole idea of looking for alternative energy vehicles is right for right now.

The Wall Street Journal Article continues to point to the consequence of higher fuel costs. Ms. Liebmann president of consulting firm WSL Strategic Retail in New York, says that households earning as much as $75,000 a year are changing their habits. Survey responses among this group were more similar to those of low-income households than those of wealthy families, she says. The types of spending most likely to be chopped: fashion accessories, clothing, home decor, electronics and entertainment.

How deep the trend extends, and how long it will last, are being closely watched by economists and retailers. Three-fourths of U.S. economic growth last year stemmed from increased consumer spending. Lower-income shoppers, more vulnerable to high fuel prices, already had been spending less in some areas, as seen by slowing sales at Wal-Mart Stores Inc. and similar chains.

For companies targeting the middle-income group, the spending slowdown could force a shift in strategies — and expectations. After its fiscal third-quarter sales fell short of Wall Street forecasts, Whole Foods said it may lower prices on nonperishable items and branded organic and natural products to better compete with other grocery stores.

Similarly, many of the more upscale casual-dining spots, including P.F. Chang’s China Bistro Inc., Applebee’s International Inc. and Cheesecake Factory Inc., have been warning investors of slowing sales. In a conference call last month, P.F. Chang’s president, Robert Vivian, said diners who were treating themselves to a splurge in boom times are pulling back. Executives at P.F. Chang’s say the casual-dining industry is in its biggest slump since 1991, when it was hurt by the Gulf War and the beginning of a recession.

“You do have to go back over 15 years to find an environment where the consumer has responded like they are today,” Chairman and Chief Executive Rick Federico said during a conference call July 26. “We have lowered our expectations for the back half of the year to better reflect current trends in our business.”

Boat maker Brunswick is making fewer of its lower-priced boats in response to the slowdown.

King’s Jewelry & Loan, a pawnbroker with three locations in the Los Angeles area, sees the trend playing out in increased demand for loans. Borrowers at King’s tend to be solidly middle class, earning $40,000 to $70,000 a year, according to President Sam Shocket.

The National Association of Home Builders said its index of builder sentiment plunged to its lowest level since 1991. That makes it tougher for homeowners to use their house as a source of cash.

Steve Schneider notes, “Driving an alternative energy vehicle has never made more sense than it makes right now and I truly believe ZAP is in the driver’s seat.”

StockGuru Blog: ZAP’s CEO NOT SUPRISED! Ford’s Cutting Production by a Fifth – Politicians Want to Drive His Car – His Time Has Come and It’s Now!

Sunday, August 20th, 2006

ZAP - ZP
ZAP’s CEO, Steve Schneider says, “No, I’m not surpised Ford Motor Company is laying off workers and slashing production by twenty percent. They have been making money on gas guzzling pick up trucks and SUV’s for years. I believe the New York Times on their front page noted: ‘Detroit’s market share has dropped to its lowest level in history, while Asian brands, known for their fuel efficiency, are setting sales records.’ “

“You know I am thinking about starting my own blog and calling it, I AM NOT SUPRISED. Every day, there is a new story, and I mean a signficant news story about the short term and long term ramifications of gas prices. In some parts of the country there are record home foreclosures and the cost of gasoline is seen as a contributing factor to families that are struggling financially.”

“We have just been contacted by a politician who wants to drive one of our cars to underscore the need of this country to focus on fuel economy and its impact on the working family and the environment. None of this surprises me at all. That’s why we got involved. I say this often but I want to say it again. ZAP is the future. We blazed the trail and we are NOT resting on our laurels. We are moving forward. I just want to remind everyone: we were THE visionaries.”

“Once again: ZAP is the RIGHT company at the RIGHT time with the RIGHT expertise in place,” concluded Schneider. “Oh, and by the way, I’m not really starting my own blog. I don’t have time!”

StockGuru Blog: ZAP Dreams Big About Tiny Cars

Saturday, August 19th, 2006

ZAP - ZP
The Sacremento Bee is an important newspaper in California. They are located in ZAP’s home and often write about ZAP. It’s important to understand how a company is viewed by those who know them best. You will find below a recent article from “The Bee.”

ZAP dreams big about tiny cars; High gas prices may boost market

In a window-clad showroom on a busy downtown corner here, the future of U.S. motoring could be on display.

Scattered across the polished linoleum floor of the ZAP auto distributorship are brightly painted “micro-cars” with names like Smart, Xebra and Obvio.

All carry two people, get extraordinary mileage and park in spaces not much bigger than a desk.

Steve Schneider, who broke into the auto industry working at a Renault dealership two decades ago, is chief executive of ZAP (Zero Air Pollution), a publicly traded company that imports these pint-size cars into the United States .

He’s convinced a confluence of events — soaring gas prices, unrelenting turmoil in the Mideast and increasing fears of global warming — means Americans are ready for the miniature, environmentally friendly runabouts.

It’s “an untapped market that is phenomenal,” Schneider said.

Indeed, micro-cars, which are generally half the length of a beefy Chevy Tahoe SUV, are ubiquitous in Europe and Asia, where stratospheric gas prices and crowded streets make them highly practical.

But among American drivers, with access to relatively cheap gas and a love for brawny vehicles and the open road, the tiny cars have never caught on.

That could change soon, experts say. The Smart car, for one, could become a big U.S. seller when its manufacturer, DaimlerChrysler, begins importing it in 2008 at a price expected to be less than $15,000.

“It appears there’s a significant market for micro-cars,” said Philip Reed, consumer editor for the automotive Web site Edmunds.com . “People are really frustrated with high gas prices.”

David Anderson of El Cerrito recently bought a Smart car from a Nevada dealership after seeing one on a trip to Europe. He said the parking, fuel economy and handling make it well worth the $25,000 he paid.

“It’s (made by Mercedes) so it drives a lot better than we expected,” said the law-enforcement retiree. “Everywhere we go, people see it and they just love it.”

Anticipating reactions like Anderson’s, ZAP brought its first Smart cars into the United States in 2002 and spent $10 million developing ways to modify them to meet U.S. safety and air pollution standards.

Like other micro-cars, the Smart car is so compact it can park head-on to a curb and not stick out into traffic. It boasts gas mileage that ranges from 40 to 75 mpg.

And to meet safety concerns, it’s built with an internal roll cage similar to those found in NASCAR race cars, designed to protect passengers in case of a crash.

ZAP says it sells every Smart car it brings into the country, even at $25,000 each. About 280 have gone to dealers in other states, and another 350 are awaiting safety and emissions modifications for the American market. ZAP said it is currently seeking authorization from California regulators to sell the cars in this state.

Within 90 days of exhibiting a U.S.-ready Smart car at a National Automobile Dealers Association show in early 2005, ZAP said it received more than $2.2 billion in purchase orders from dealers around the country.

“You would have thought we were passing out $100 bills at our booth,” Schneider said of the attention the Smart car drew at the show.

But when ZAP officials met with DaimlerChrysler in March 2005 to explain their marketing strategy and the modifications they’re doing for the U.S. market, things turned ugly, according to a suit ZAP filed against DaimlerChrysler last October.

According to the suit, filed in Los Angeles County Superior Court, ZAP announced it would place a purchase order with DaimlerChrysler to bring more than 76,000 Smart cars into the United States .

Shortly afterward, according to the suit, DaimlerChrysler officials said publicly they knew nothing about such an order and questioned ZAP’s financing, as well as the safety of its modifications — even though the cars had already passed muster with all federal and most state regulators.

Its credibility questioned, ZAP saw its stock plunge from $5 a share in late 2004 to $1 a share in May 2005, and as low as 25 cents by the end of last year. It has since rebounded to about 70 cents a share.

The suit hasn’t yet gone to trial, and DaimlerChrysler spokeswoman Bettina Singhartinger declined to comment, citing the pending litigation.

Last month DaimlerChrysler announced its own plans to sell the Smart car in the United States at a price that could be $10,000 below what ZAP charges.

Meanwhile ZAP continues to buy Smart cars through independent brokers in Europe and then modifies them to meet U.S . standards at a plant in Southern California .

Despite the high price, ZAP says demand is relentless.

Tom Day, an auto dealer in Scottsdale, Ariz., said he’s sold more than 30 Smart cars since March, at about $28,000 each.

“I have everyone from teenagers to (rock star) Alice Cooper buying them,” he said. His customers like the the car’s look and its high gas mileage, which some buyers have told him tops 70 miles to the gallon. He compares the car to the Mini Cooper, a car with such a high “cool”-quotient that it sells briskly despite a price that can exceed $30,000.

“People are really excited about the car. They tell me they’ve been waiting for this kind of car for years,” Day said.

Even if its Smart car business is eclipsed by DaimlerChrysler’s expected leap into the U.S. market, ZAP has alternatives waiting in the wings.

One is the Xebra, a Chinese-built three-wheel electric car, which costs less than $10,000 and has a range of up to 40 miles between charges.

Larry Dye, who owns Electric Wheels Inc. in Salem , Oregon, said he’s taken delivery of 11 Xebras and sold them all. “A lot of people are buying them as commuter vehicles to get to and from work,” he said.

One Xebra owner is Dave Johnson of Fultano’s Pizza in Cannon Beach , Ore. He said his new three-wheeled Xebra doesn’t have enough range to be his primary delivery vehicle , but says its visibility helps promote his business. And he hopes his purchase will encourage the development of electric cars. “I think it’s a good cause to get behind,” the pizza purveyor said.

ZAP is also preparing to import the Brazilian-made Obvio, a flashy 175-hp rocket with Maserati-style doors that open like butterfly wings. Schneider said ZAP could bring Obvios into the market by 2007 and sell them for as little as $14,000.

Asked about the Obvio’s potential, Scottsdale auto dealer Day replied, “I think it will be one of the hottest-selling cars on the market.”

But even as ZAP burrows into the micro-car market, it’s facing competition from companies like Honda and Toyota, both of which have introduced small, fuel-efficient cars in recent months.

Because they seat four people and are several feet longer than micro-cars, the Honda Fit and Toyota Yaris are not quite in the same class as the Smart car or Obvio. David Thomas, an editor with Cars.com, said the good mileage and slightly bigger size of Honda’s and Toyota ’s subcompacts could lure plenty of customers.

But Joel Baker, a futurist and author based in St. Paul , Minn., predicts both kinds of cars can co-exist and even help fertilize the small-car market.

StockGuru Blog: ZAP’s Plans to Zip Up the Market with Xebra and Obvio

Friday, August 18th, 2006

ZAP - ZP
ZAP’s CEO, Steve Schneider says, “Zap’s a great name and our cars do Zap around. But sometimes people forget that ZAP is an acronym for Zero Air Pollution. We are an established companay and ZAP has been a leader in advanced transportation technologies since 1994, delivering over 90,000 vehicles to consumers in more than 75 countries.”

He continues, “I don’t want to bore anyone, but we ARE the leaders and we KNOW what we are doing in this industry. There is a reason the electric transportation is being governed as an established industry and there’s a reason magazines, journals and newspapers are coming to ZAP for information. It’s because we have it. We blazed the trail and we are NOT resting on our laurels. We are moving forward. I just want to remind everyone where we were THE visionaries, where ZAP truly led the way:


ZAP is at the forefront of fuel-efficient transportation with new technologies including energy efficient gas systems, hydrogen, electric, fuel cell, ethanol, hybrid, trybrid and other innovative power systems.

ZAP makes vehicles and that is their core business.

Zap also makes electric bicycles, motorcycles, scooters, and vehicles, as well as kits for motorizing bikes with battery power.

ZAP makes personal watercraft as well as electric vehicles designed for urban and commercial use.

ZAP is entering into the world of all terrain vehicles which are four wheeler off road vehicles.

In 2004 ZAP obtained exclusive rights from California-based Smart-Automobile LLC to develop Smart cars in the US. CEO Steven Schneider and co-founder and Chairman Gary Starr own about 33% and 16% of ZAP, respectively.

ZAP’s bikes are popular with electric utilities and police departments who desire inexpensive and non-exhausting modes of transportation for their meter readers and officers. They are also popular with middle-aged customers who like to bike but need a little help. Motors begin at about $350; bikes at about $700. Its products are sold through company-owned and franchised stores, mail order, its Web site, and independent bike shops. ZAP’s Rental Outlet provides electric vehicle rentals for urban areas throughout California.

In early 2004 the company purchased Santa Barbara-based The Electric Transportation Company (ETC), maker of drivetrains for electric propulsion vehicles. In April 2004 ZAP acquired the exclusive distribution, marketing, and technology rights from Smart-Automobile LLC to make its Smart cars US compliant.

“We are the RIGHT company and the RIGHT time with the RIGHT expertise in place,” concluded Schneider.

StockGuru Blog: The Immune Response Corporation Reports Exercise of First Tranche of Warrants Corporation

Friday, August 18th, 2006

IMNRThe Immune Response Corporation

The Immune Response Corporation (OTCBB: IMNR), an immuno-pharmaceutical company, declared on 10 August that it has raised USD9.9m in gross proceeds from investors exercising 495,552,100 warrants from the first tranche warrants in the March 2006 private placement financing.

The total gross proceeds include an investment of USD250,000 by Qubit LLC, an affiliate of the company’s largest stockholder and director, Kevin Kimberlin, to exercise 12,500,000 warrants.

In the March financing the company issued USD8.0m of secured notes convertible into 400,000,000 common shares at USD0.02 per share, accruing interest at 8% per year and maturing on 1 January 2008.

Investors also received warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,200,000,000 common shares at USD0.02 per share. The warrants were divided into two 600,000,000 warrant tranches, each generating a potential USD12m in gross proceeds.

Out of the USD8.0m secured notes, the holders have to date converted approximately USD1.7m into common stock.

The second tranche of 600,000,000 warrants will become exercisable on 16 October 2006, and will expire on 30 November 2006. If fully exercised, the second tranche would generate an additional USD12m in gross proceeds for the company.

Both of these therapies are in Phase II clinical development and are designed to stimulate pathogen-specific immune responses aimed at slowing or halting the rate of disease progression. NeuroVax™, which is based IMNR’s patented T-cell receptor (TCR) peptide technology, has shown potential clinical value in the treatment of relapsing forms of MS. NeuroVax™ has been shown to stimulate strong disease specific cell mediated immunity in nearly all patients treated by enhancing levels of FOXP3+ T Regulatory (Treg) cells that are able to down regulate the activity of pathogenic T-cells that cause MS. Increasing scientific findings have associated diminished levels of FOXP3+ Treg cell responses with the pathogenesis and progression of MS and other autoimmune diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA), psoriasis and Crohn’s disease.

In addition to MS, IMNR has opened Investigational New Drug Applications (IND) with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for clinical evaluation of TCR peptide-based immune-based therapies for RA and psoriasis. IR103 is based on their patented whole-inactivated virus technology, co-invented by Dr. Jonas Salk and indicated to be safe and immunogenic in extensive clinical studies of REMUNE® , our first-generation HIV product candidate. IR103 is a more potent formulation that combines its whole-inactivated antigen with a synthetic Toll-like receptor (TLR-9) agonist to create enhanced HIV-specific immune responses. IMNR is currently testing IR103 in two Phase II clinical studies as a first-line treatment for drug-naïve HIV-infected individuals not yet eligible for antiretroviral therapy according to current medical guidelines. In early 2006 IMNR made a strategic decision to accelerate the development of IR103, rather than pursue a Phase III trial with REMUNE® . All of IMNR products are still in the development stage. IMNR has never had revenues from the sale of products. IMNR was founded in 1986.

StockGuru Blog: Wall Street Journal Looks at Electric Cars

Wall Street Journal Looks at Electric Cars

ZAP (NYSE arca: ZP)

Electric cars mount a charge — New-style batteries hitting the highways travel faster, longer

In a recent article by Jennifer Saranow The Wall Street Journal looked at the electric car noting, the electric car is being reborn as a futuristic high-speed sports vehicle in the United States. Highlights of this July 27, 2006, article follow.

With rising gas prices, advances in battery technologies and an aging generation looking for a low-key way to ride around their communities, a host of companies are betting that battery-powered vehicles finally will catch on.

Some car makers are coming out with models they claim can go greater distances on a single battery charge and go much faster than previous versions. Others are adding carlike features such as sunroofs and steel doors to a slower class of battery-powered electric vehicles, hoping drivers will see them as perfect second cars. More U.S. states, meanwhile, are passing laws allowing these slower electric cars on some public roads.

The resurgence of the battery-powered electric vehicle comes as rising gas prices are encouraging many consumers to look for ways to save at the pump, including opting for other new fuel-saving technologies that have hit the market in recent years such as hybrid vehicles, which use a combination of gasoline engines and electronic motors to boost fuel efficiency.

Other new battery-powered electric vehicles are starting to reach the market. Transportation technology company Zap recently began delivering to dealerships its Xebra “city car,” three-wheeled, four-door, $8,900 electric vehicles that can go as much as 64 kilometers per hour and last for as much as 64 kilometers per charge, Zap’s fastest and longest-lasting electric vehicle on the market today (options available include stereos and leather seats).

The Electric Drive Transportation Association estimates that between 60,000 and 76,000 low-speed, battery-powered electric vehicles are on the road in the U.S., up from about 56,000 in 2004. While higher-speed and longer-lasting models can cost more than $100,000, lower-speed and limited-range models can frequently be found for less than $10,000.

Advances in battery technology also are helping to make a longer-lasting electric car more viable then when car makers such as GM and Toyota Motor Co. introduced their electric models about a decade ago. While these earlier models ran on lead-acid and nickel-metal hydrate batteries, the newer long-range electric cars generally run on lithium-ion batteries. Such batteries are lighter and can store more power per charge than older batteries, enabling the vehicles to last for more kilometers.

Steve Schneider, CEO of ZAP comments, “I was not surprised to read this in the Wall Street Journal. Electric cars are an idea whose time has come. Global warming is a given. Vehicle emissions are a major contributing factor. We’ve got the green factor going for us and with the price of gas topping $3.00 a gallon, they make sense.”
