OTCPicks Featured Company: Immunicon Corporation (IMMC) Awarded Clearance from FDA of CellSearch™ Circulating Tumor Kit

Friday, February 29th, 2008

Immunicon Corporation was recently issued clearance by the FDA of the CellSearch™ Circulating Tumor Cell Kit for monitoring patients with metastatic prostate cancer. Using the CellSearch™ kit, samples of a patient’s blood is processed to occupy and count CTC’s. The company saw a rise of 50.00% as trading began this morning.

The kit is now cleared for three of the four most prevalent cancers. Originally cleared in January of 2004, the kit was then predicting progression-free and overall survival in patients with metastatic breast cancer, and expanded after to include monitoring. In November of 2007, the kit was cleared by the FDA for monitoring metastatic colorectal cancer.

The impact of the recent clearance will have an enormous impact on metastatic prostate cancer, since the kit takes a CTC count which at any time during treatment of metastatic disease allows assessment of patient prognosis and predicts survival. Changes in CTC count can be determined in 3-5 weeks, rather than in the 8-12 weeks required for imaging studies such as CT scans. The most important factor of the CellSearch™ kit is that physicians will now have a clearer prognosis of the disease’s progression; thereby guiding more informed patient care decisions earlier.

Byron D. Hewett, CEO and President of Immunicon Corporation, said, “Because the three pivotal trials demonstrated that the CellSearch™ test predicts survival in prostate, breast and colorectal cancers, circulating tumor cell testing should become standard of care in the management of patients with metastatic disease. We estimate the market size for testing in these three cancers is almost $1 billion. More importantly, oncologists can use the results to make better-informed treatment decisions and improve patient care for three of the top carcinomas.”

OTCPicks Featured Company: NutriPure Beverages, Inc. (NUBV.PK) Welcomes New CFO in Lieu of Potential Move to Higher Exchange

Friday, February 29th, 2008

NutriPure Beverages, Inc. announced the naming of Sherry M. Tapp as its new Chief Financial Officer and is taking additional steps to prepare the company for possible moves to either a fully reporting pink sheets company, or to a higher exchange. The company saw a rise of 50.00% in this morning’s trading.

Enrolling and graduating from Hamburg University in Hamburg, Germany, Ms. Tapp brings more than 20 years of accounting experiences in a wide area of settings. For the past three years she has served as the Budget Financial Analyst for K. Hovnanian Enterprises, Inc. located in Mesa, AZ. During that time she handled Sarbanes-Oxley, Month-End, property tax accrual for over 2,000 lots, and quarterly budgets for a Fortune 500 company.

Steve Nickolas, CEO and President of NutriPure Beverages, Inc. stated, “We are very pleased that Ms. Tapp has joined the company as its new CFO. Ms. Tapp was chosen after a careful and extensive selection process and we are very confident that she is the perfect choice to fill this very important position. Ms. Tapp will play a key role in next few months as we prepare for our upcoming annual audit and begin production and distribution of our Nu2O product line.”

Mr. Nickolas added, “Once the company’s final 2007 audits have been completed, we will reassess all our options and select which reporting status and which exchange will be in the best interest of the company and its shareholders. This could include continuing as a regular pink sheets company, remaining on the pink sheets as a fully reporting company, or moving to a different exchange entirely. We see all these options as viable and exciting and will make our final decision based on the market factors at that time, as well as the company’s current needs and development. Either way, we look forward to 2008 as a banner year for NutriPure Beverages, Inc.”

NutriPure Beverages, Inc. has been focusing on producing and distributing a line of nutrient-enhanced bottled water products that contain no calories, no carbohydrates, no artificial coloring, and no flavors other than pure water. The company is in a unique position since no other producer adds organic nutrients without also adding masking flavors, colors, and/or sweeteners. The company has redirected their entire efforts to the premium bottled water industry and intends to market a full line of nutrient-enhanced water products to compete with current competitors; VitaminWater and SmartWater. The company is in the final stages of negotiations for the acquisitions of assets for a second water company, and further announcements will be made in the near future.

Modavox, Inc. (MDVX.OB) Gaining Ground with Last Year’s Lawsuit?

Friday, February 29th, 2008


There’s word on the street that Modavox, Inc. (OTCBB: MDVX) may spend some more time in the courtroom. The broadcast media/interactive media company holds various Internet advertising ads, and last year slapped Tacoda, a division of AOL (TWX), with a patent infringement suit.

The company’s broadcast media division generated roughly 80% of revenues last quarter. Its interactive media division develops behavioral targeted advertisements paired with interactive e-learning solutions – and that is where the issues begin. According to a contributing source of an editorial on SeekingAlpha.com, Tacoda may be viewed as a “test case.”

News of the Modavox’s lawsuit made ripples in the small-cap world last year, and some believe it’s the break of the new wave of behavioral advertising competition. We can distinctly remember the August day when Modavox released the news it would “take on” Tacoda, backed by Internet giant AOL. Journalistic lines were abuzz with questioning shareholders as the story topped small-cap headlines for weeks.

“Modavox’s commitment to innovation has yielded highly valuable patented intellectual property. Our management team, in conjunction with Fox Rothschild LLP, made a strategic business decision to design, create and execute a comprehensive plan in support of our patented process and technologies,” David Ide, CEO of Modavox previously stated. “We knew that decision would likely include pursuing enforcement through the legal system, and we are confident that the action we have taken today is an appropriate step on behalf of our shareholders and believe it will allow us to begin to reveal the true value of our patented intellectual property.”

Since then, AOL and Yahoo recently purchased such advertising companies, and, according to common speculation, if Modavox wins its suit, its Interactive Media division will take the spotlight.

Credit Issues Not Done

Friday, February 29th, 2008

Although it’s being treated as old news by the market, maybe it shouldn’t be. We’re speaking of the persistent credit issues, which keep cropping up in a number of disturbing ways. This week’s most notable entry in the ongoing financial soap opera which began as last year’s subprime mortgage woes is more credit concerns with regard to the bond insurers, MBIA (NYSE: MBI) and Ambac (NYSE: ABK). This is the latest twitch in a secular credit spasm that has corrosively worked its way through the homebuilding industry’s freefall, the banks’ and financial institutions’ erosions, the retailers’ drop, and most recently, the consumers and their loss of fragile confidence. Is it over?

Commentator Doug Kass of TheStreet.com was particularly scathing in his remarks about Moody’s re-affirmation of the triple-A ratings of both MBIA and Ambac this week. Kass brilliantly detailed the ugly, ugly story of MBIA, which has seen 80 percent of the stock’s value hacked off in the market’s ongoing punishing reaction to the bond insurer’s brutal loses. Kass posted a chart which showed a $15 billion loss along with the insurer holding $5.7 billion in cash as compared to $15.7 billion in debt. They hold obligations on $670 billion in debt. The stock, which at one time in the last year traded at over $70 a share, now trades at around $14. Kass pointed out that in stark contrast, Pfizer (NYSE: PFE) was downgraded from its AAA rating despite its relatively healthy numbers. Kass saved his most denunciatory comments for Moody’s and its irresponsible behavior of re-affirming the triple-A rating. What gives?

Similarly, Ambac, MBIA’s rival if not twin, which once traded at over $96 a share, now trades at $11, with the holder of $524 billion in obligations perhaps even in worse shape than MBIA. Its market cap has been sliced off as if it were a haircut that went all the way down to its ankles.

Despite all the smooth assurances of MBIA CEO Jay Brown that the Company has raised $1.6 billion in equity and $1 billion in other surpluses, critics of the Moody’s decision (and Standard & Poor’s as well) point out that maintaining the rating is at best questionable, that the potential for serious problems remain. MBIA and Ambac hold collateralized debt obligations, or CDOs, on many subprime mortgage loans, and basically act as an insurer which will cover defaults by the policyholders. This is a far riskier business than the other main business of these firms, which is the municipal bond business.

Although many friendly financial projections come up with numbers well within the range of these two debt insurers to meet their obligations, should defaults continue, these projections ride on the sweet assumption that we won’t have another round of unforeseen problems or a huge chunk of loans going bad. This has been a benign assumption that has been wrong thus far throughout the entire subprime crisis, as one massive writedown followed another. Many large institutions have taken multiple, mega-writedowns. Are we done?

Even if this moderate or reasonable scenario plays out, with the projections that the two insurers can meet their obligations, Ambac was still putting together a shaky eight-bank consortium plus a possible Cerberus Capital cash infusion to meet these capital reserve levels. Given the outcry against the easy rating re-affirmation, Moody’s has apparently now pulled back and qualified its approval pending further review of Ambac’s capital situation. There’s nothing routine about this.

Add to this that mortgage rates rose yesterday from 6.04 to 6.24, as banks are keeping the spread to hoard cash instead of lending it, along with the comments by Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke that some small banks may fail (how small, you might ask?). Also, read the back page news that Thornburg Mortgage (NYSE: TMA), an early near-casualty in the subprime debacle, continues to writhe like a pithed frog on the dissection table, as it divulged a recent $300 million margin call for which it admitted it will have to sell off assets to meet. It just goes on.

Friday, February 29th, 2008

STAAR Surgical Company, a leading developer, marketer and manufacturer announced the approval from the State Food and Drug Administration of the People’s Republic of China for the go ahead in the marketing of STAAR Visian™ Toric Implantable Collamar Lens to eye care professionals for the treatment of astigmatism and nearsightedness.

Barry G. Caldwell, President and CEO of STAAR Surgical noted, “This approval has significant strategic importance for STAAR and positions us for continued growth in China.

The Visian Myopic ICL was approved in China during July 2006 and has enjoyed significant growth. With these additional approvals, we are positioned to expand our presence in a market where the demographics are very favorable.”

In Addition to the approval for the Market STAAR Visian™, the SFDA granted approval to STAAR to market an implantable collamer lens (STAAR Visian ICH), to correct hyperopia and/or farsightedness.

There are over 500 million myopes and nearly 50 million hyperopes in China, according to Market Scope, making it one of the largest potential refractive markets in the world.

Mr. Caldwell added, “Our goal in China over time is to at least replicate the market penetration we are achieving in South Korea.” Japan’s January meeting data reveals that STAAR’s Visian ICL and TICL were used in about 60% of Lasik procedures.

NetSol Technologies, Inc. (NTWK) Signs Basel II Contract with Pakistan Bank

Friday, February 29th, 2008

NetSol, a multinational IT services provider, announced the signing of a contract with a leading financial institution in Pakistan to officially estimate the value of its readiness and to assist its act in accordance to the framework of the Basel II Capital accord.

NetSol will assess the state of condition and readiness of the bank (under terms of contract) in adopting the Internal Rating Based approach of the Basil accord for credit risk. Pakistan is very proactive in its encouragements to the banking industry, noted State Bank of Pakistan, to fully adopt the Basel II accord.

“We are very pleased to announce this new contract win in a growing vertical market for us. The Basel II accord is an important framework for international banks to adopt in an ever increasing global market place. Netsol is currently prepared to advance its consultancy services in the South East Asia and UAE markets after having been recognized for our advisory efforts with the Basel II accord in Asia Pacific and EMEA,” said Mr. Najeeb Ghauri, Chairman and CEO NetSol Technologies.

He continued, “We already have a very strong base of blue chip banking clients in North America and we are working tirelessly to duplicate our efforts in other regions. Pakistan is a growing niche market for Basel II advisory services and we foresee great opportunities there.”

Bank for International Settlements is the developer for The Basel II capital accord. The Basel II Framework tells of a more comprehensive measure and minimum standard for capital adequacy that are now being worked on by supervisory authorities to implement through domestic rule-making. Banks face some underlining risk factors and the Company seeks to improve on the rules by aligning regulatory requirements more closely and by helping the companies manage those risks.

DnC Multimedia, Inc. (DCNM.OB) Launches Advanced Noise Cancellation and Hearing Aide Device

Friday, February 29th, 2008

Many people are using headsets to work from home, talk to their friends via the computer, record their voice and listen to music, but most of these devices transmit sound through the microphones. Some of these consumers are looking for noise cancellation devices or technology that cancel or at least minimize unwanted sounds.

As for the ones already on the market, they work well but with the ever advancing tech world there are always new applications being developed or improved as we can see in the case of DnC Multimedia who announced today that it will be demonstrating its new noise cancellation and hearing aide device at CeBIT in Hanover, Germany next week.

Since 1986, groups from the IT and telecommunications industry including those from the wholesale/retail sector, skilled trades, banks, the services sector, government agencies, and all users passionate about technology have been flocking to the CEBIT trade show. CeBIT is the world’s largest trade fair showcasing digital IT and telecommunications solutions for home and work environments where attendees and participants can compare notes on current industry trends, networking, and product presentations.

EnsurApet, Inc. (EPTI.OB) Capitalizes on Pet Health Insurance

Friday, February 29th, 2008

Many of us love our pets and to many they are just as important as any other family member. So it is no wonder why we want them to have the same benefits that we have. After all they too get sick; they have accidents and need health care as often as we do. But with the rising cost of veterinary bills, many pet owners may have to get health insurance for our best friends, and companies like EnsurApet wants to make sure they offer the best plan to those pet owners seeking Pet Health Insurance.

EnsurApet provides peace of mind by protecting the health of the nation’s most beloved pets and the financial well being of their owners. The company is a leading provider of pet health insurance and other pet health-related services in the United States. Programs include its Get HIP™ Pet Health Insurance for Pets program, the most comprehensive full-coverage pet health insurance plan in the industry.

Many pet owners are buying pet insurance because the procedures, new techniques and medicines used to care for pets can be very expensive and can result in a very large vet bill. One advantage of having good pet insurance coverage for your pet is you don’t need to worry about how to pay the vet’s bill. So if your pet becomes sick or injured all you have to do is take him or her to any licensed vet, and pet insurance will help you pay for the doctor’s visit just like a normal health plan.

According to EnsurApet, CEO Russell Smith, “The market for pet insurance in the US is largely undeveloped, with less than 1% of dog and cat owners currently insuring their pets, compared to 19% in the United Kingdom and 48% in Sweden. EnsurApet plans to combine its business model with a network of veterinary hospitals to develop a network of pet HMO’s to take advantage of this marketing opportunity and niche. EnsurApet will then manage every aspect of the pet medical and insurance business while gaining market share of the pet insurance market, now exceeding $100 million per year.”

Hototc Featured Company: Victory Energy Corporation (VYEY.OB) Begins Generating Revenue from 2.5 Billion cu. /ft. of Proven Natural Gas Reserves.

Friday, February 29th, 2008

There is no better feeling then when your well comes in. Natural gas, oil or minerals; when the valve is finally turned, eyes begin to light up and corks begin to pop. If ever there was a non-monetary reason for getting into natural resources exploration this would be it.

Victory Energy Corporation, a development stage oil and gas company, works to develop and bring to market gas and oil discoveries in the United States. Currently, the company is finding very profitable discoveries of natural gas in its Texas lease properties. On February 27, 2007 the company announced that its Addams-Bagget Canyon gas property in Crockett Country, TX had been brought on line and is flowing on its own. Further, the company indicated that the well has been tied into transit systems and is generating revenue.

The Crockett gas field location is considered the sixth largest gas formation in the world. The company has 5 lease options in the field and expects to take advantage as quickly as possible. Proven reserves in the region indicate 500 million cubic feet of gas per well, giving the company access to proven reserves of 2.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas. Considering that this field is generally considered shallow depth, accessing proven reserves should be cost effective, especially in a market where natural gas prices are very high by any measure. With favorable weather conditions, the company appears ready to take advantage of what is left of the 2008 heating season and the coming 2009 heating season.

Taking a wide view of the energy markets, the company has future expectations of entering alternative energy production and offering pollution credits. The market for pollution credits is a largely “quiet” area of operation between companies but nonetheless a profitable one if approached in the correct manner. The management of Victory Energy Corporation appears to have personnel and experience in place that is familiar with this marketplace and indicates that it will pursue it as it does other options, prudently. This can be illustrated by the company’s willingness to walk away from projects that it feels do not meet time and revenue schedules. One such project in Montana could be used as an example.

From all indications, the company looks to have its timing exactly right for solid growth potential. It has a producing well in a known and proven field with exceptional reserves. It has additional leases approved to take advantage of these reserves. It has a plan for future diversification within its chosen market and it has experienced people to make it happen.

HotOtc Featured Company: Apple Inc. (AAPL) Generating Revenue at the Cutting Edge of Consumer Trends

Friday, February 29th, 2008

When an entirely new marketplace forms from thin air, nobody has any idea that it is forming, much less what it will develop into. When the personal computer made its first appearance, people pretty much yawned. Now the companies that began making those first computers only offer the units as part of their product base. Where the personal computer goes from here is just a dream at this point, but it is sure that it will make that first personal computer look like the typewriter it replaced.

Apple Inc., a digital products manufacturer focusing on digital lifestyle products, works to offer a spectrum of digital oriented products to consumers. Largely recognized for its personal computing products, the company is now becoming known for the variety and spectrum of digital products that it offers. The company’s computer product lines are unique, in that they are the only computer product lines manufacturer that controls the entire manufacturing process in every respect; component to software to retail. It is, however, the company’s full product line past the personal computer that is offering opportunity for non-core product growth.

In the first quarter of 2008, the company introduced its Mac Book Air. An ultra thin and light weight notebook computer, the Mac Book is being recognized as a good solid offering that keeps the product pipeline of the company flowing and generating new revenue. Regardless of how this product fairs in the short term marketplace, however, the company’s other offerings at the cutting edge consumer trends are the products to watch for revenue growth.

Being at the cutting edge of consumer trends the first years of the 21st century is a heady place. Being ready and flexible for how consumers react to a given digital product is critical for a company to remain relevant. Just because a company offers a new product line does not mean that the consumer will use that product line as it was intended. Being able to recognize how a product is being used and then capitalizing on it is the ultimate goal of the digital manufacturer that wants exponential growth. Apple Inc. has found this ability.

The company’s iPod product is an excellent example of this ability. Past its introduction, which was viewed as a leap by many into the digital music arena, the company was able to recognize how the product fit within consumer trends. It enjoyed the successes of the new product introduction but also recognized future trend direction and became involved in a project called iTunes. This recognition and involvement has catapulted the company well into the future in directions unknown. iTunes is now offering digital media well past its original music roots and will likely morph into some other digital medium distribution point in the future. If the past is any indication, the company is likely to be involved and in all likelihood fairly soon, if technological change at this point in time is any indication.

Apple inc. also looks at its distribution and service areas a bit differently than most in the digital offerings marketplace. It puts Apple Inc. employees on the front retail lines in addition to the more typical merchant, online, specialty sales channels. This helps the customers find the real power of the products, but also new ways to use the products, which is the profit driver mentioned above. Direct feed back at the retail level has become a key advantage of the company moving forward.

Like it or not, the company’s newest foray into the cellular market has been redirected with its iPhones being unlocked for general use. Instead of being committed to its AT & T system alliance, iPhones are now able to be unlocked and used around the world. In a certain sense, this is a bonus for iPhone sales as many regions of the worlds where the iPhone would not likely have found a market are now opening up. This is particularly true in China and many central European markets. Although slow out of the gate, 4 million units/200 days, it is very likely that the iPhone will have very long legs well into the future for company revenue.

Although the marketplace would like to think that Apple Inc. is an established company in an established marketplace, it is not. Neither, for that matter is Microsoft, Yahoo or Dell. The investor should remember that this digital phenomenon is in its crawling years and very few people, if any, know how it is going to grow and develop. Ups and downs in a company’s development are bound to happen; but, if a company’s short history in a market with an exceedingly steep development curve is any indication, Apple Inc. is going to be a player with solid investment returns for the entire run.

Universal Detection Technology (UDTT.OB) – Modern Plagues, the War Rages On

Friday, February 29th, 2008

For all the miracles of modern medicine, there are a few very basic facts that often get overlooked in this new fangled age of technology. One of those basic facts is that there is still NO cure for the common cold. Yes you can treat the symptoms, reduce your fever, calm your headache, but the fact remains that it’s your own body’s defense mechanism that finally defeats the “bad bugs” and get you better. Well, it’s also true that the battle between “us” and the “bugs” has been going on for thousands of years, and over time, both adapt to new environs.

If one were to look at the whole scope of the medical arsenal that can be deployed against disease, it would be easy to think that we’ve won the war against virus, bacteria, mold etc. Nothing could be further from the truth however. All of these life forms change, adapt, even go into hiding while trying to come up with new ways to infect us. Often they figure out ways to mutate into forms that our self defense mechanisms cannot recognize. They’ve even have been shown to migrate from one form of host to another, such as jumping from animal infections to man infections. In the past few years we’ve heard of frightening statistics about such things as SARS, and Bird flu. Estimates are that a true pandemic of either would kill several millions of people. This is the power of the “bug”.

Recently there’s been a lot of murmuring about MRSA, a rather horrible bacteria that’s become resistant to almost all of modern medicine’s antibiotics. Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infection is caused by Staphylococcus aureus bacteria — often called “staph.” Decades ago, a strain of staph emerged in hospitals that was resistant to the broad-spectrum antibiotics commonly used to treat it. Dubbed methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), it was one of the first germs to outwit all but the most powerful drugs.

In the 1990s, a type of MRSA began showing up in the wider community. Today, that form of staph, known as community-associated MRSA, or CA-MRSA, is responsible for many serious skin and soft tissue infections and for a serious form of pneumonia. In fact, just a few days ago, a young man perished from this very pneumonia, raising alarms all around the world. Why? He did nothing wrong. He wasn’t weak, old, or frail. He wasn’t a drug user, an AIDS victim or had a poorly functioning immune system. Yet this “super bug” took his young life, and modern medicine couldn’t save him.

This is where UDTT becomes so very important. Universal Detection Technology has been in the business of “looking for” bad bugs since its inception. Detecting abnormal amounts of airborne mold spores, for example, is a core element of their business. But it’s their recent Product introduction named Vital Oxide that gets our attention. This approach to sterilizing is different from the harsh chemical products commonly used such as Chlorine bleach. This product “burns up” the bad bugs, mold, mildew, etc via oxidation instead. It’s safe enough to wash your hands with, but dynamic enough to kill 99.9% of all the bad guys, including MRSA.

With the EPA certification of the product, and their newly developed fogger type dispensers, Universal has opened the door to a much wider consumer base than they presently enjoy. No longer confined to anti terrorism and monitoring capabilities, UDTT is expected to be a powerful force in the war against such horrid bugs as MRSA.

The public is becoming both aware of, and “scared of” MRSA and for good reason. It’s killing children. School kids are having surgery to remove parts of arms and hands horribly infected with such bugs, and all they did to acquire it was to play some touch football. They cry out for schools, hospitals, daycare centers, etc to “do something” and UDTT gives them an effective way to sterilize these very areas, economically and almost completely.

As MRSA infections continue to increase, UDTT’s order books will likewise increase as the public clamors for prevention. Someone has to combat these horrid infectious diseases, and until modern medicine can cure us of them, UDTT’s Vital Oxide sterilizer will be in great demand. This is a good time to take a serious look at the company.
