Nitro Petroleum, Inc. (NTRO.OB) Reports on Petroleum Reserves for Big Horn Prospect

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

Nitro Petroleum, Inc. announced after the market closed yesterday the petroleum reserves for their Big Horn project in Montana. Nitro maintains a 25% working interest in a 1,600 acre lease at Big Horn. Ramsey Property Management LLC of Oklahoma City, OK, a reservoir engineering firm, was contracted to evaluate the potential reserves. The data compiled by Ramsey showed 93,900 barrels of high gravity crude oil and 236,000 cubic feet of natural through initial calculation indicators.

Drilling regulations allow for ten well drilling programs on the lease. Nitro, according to their President, James Borem, is presently in negotiations with potential Joint Venture partners to begin prospecting a first well. The target for the first well is a reservoir in the Tensleep geology believed to be at 7,300 feet in depth. A nearby well to the east has produced nearly 300,000 barrels of crude oil to date with production still continuing at a rate of 40 barrels a day without further stimulation. The data combined with the facts of the nearby well provides a substantial opportunity for Nitro in the highly competitive market.

Nitro, a company focused the acquisition, exploitation and development of oil and natural gas properties in the United States and Canada, not only retains the working interest in the Big Horn Prospect, but several other locations as well. An update to shareholders was provided on May 17th regarding the enhancement program being performed on the Quinlan #1, Quinlan #2, and Quinlan #3 wells. Nitro is also the operator on the Mason Burns well in Oklahoma.

Last week, Nitro announced that the engineering and economic feasibility study on this well had been completed. Also in the Nitro portfolio is the Ward-McNeil Well in Oklahoma. Nitro is the operator on this well also and provided information regarding the re-work scheduled for the well earlier this month. Nitro has been pushing lately to expand operations in the development of the business strategy to seek out and develop opportunities in the oil and natural gas sectors that represent low risk opportunities.

Oil Prices Rally in Highest Gain Since September

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

In times of economic crisis, people often look to the pump to show them how the economy is faring. This Wednesday, analysts reported that oil prices rebounded sharply after weeks of being knocked down by economic uncertainty. Following a three-week slump, oil rallied 4 percent, the best one-day percentage gain since September.

At the pump, retail gas prices continued to fall. According to AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service, the national average slipped nearly a penny overnight to $2.771/gallon. A gallon of regular unleaded costs 8.3 cents less than a month ago, but is still 34.6 cents more expensive than last year’s numbers.

Government reports revealed an increased demand for both gasoline and big-ticket goods like refrigerators and airplanes. Many investors now think oil is undervalued and a rally in equities markets sparked a parallel rally in crude, said Tom Kloza, publisher and chief oil analyst at Oil Price Information Service.

“I’m not saying the correction is over” in energy commodities, Kloza said. “But people are now saying, ‘I can live with these prices’.”

Oil held its gains even as U.S. stock markets turned lower. Prices kept rising as the Commerce Department reported that orders for durable goods increased 2.9 percent in April, the best showing in three months. The report suggested that the U.S. manufacturing industry was getting stronger, which could lead to more fuel consumption.

Dow Jones Industrial Closes Below 10,000

Thursday, May 27th, 2010

This past Wednesday marked a significant fall of the Euro, setting stocks on the down swing, with the Dow Jones industrial closing below 10,000 for the first time in nearly four months. Wednesday’s trading extended a streak of volatility since stocks went to their highest level of the year in late April.

“We had a nice rally all day and we expected it to have had legs,” said Phillip Orlando, chief equity market strategist at Federated Investors in New York, which manages about $400 billion. The sudden sell-off, he said, suggests “that investors are as nervous as a long-tailed cat in a roomful of rocking chairs.”

Analysts theorize that the late reversal emphasizes the reservation with which traders treat Europe, worrying that heavy debt loads in European countries and more rounds of cost-cutting will hamper a recovery there in addition to spreading to other regions.

The sliding euro has come to symbolize the waning confidence in Europe’s ability to control or contain its debt problems. Currently, the euro remains close to the four-year low it hit last week, falling to $1.2179 Wednesday.

“The inability of the market to hang on to the early gains today certainly does not send a very positive message,” said Teddy Weisberg, a New York Stock Exchange floor trader with Seaport Securities. “It’s a function of there being no confidence among investors.”

The afternoon stock slump stood in stark contrast to Tuesday, when traders chipped away at a steep slide by the close and the major indexes ended little changed. The slide in stocks has rattled investors still shaken by the market’s plunge in late 2008 and early 2009.

“Everyone is so scared from what happened back in the big crash and now they’re just all gun-shy,” said Frank Ingarra, co-portfolio manager at Hennessy Funds.

Stocks were higher for most of the day after traders focused on economic news. While the American economy chugs towards a slow recovery, Europe is beginning to lose its economic strength.

The annual show is attended by buyers from hardware stores, big box stores, grocery stores, drugstore chains and other retailers from around the country.

Dr. Carl Kukkonen, VIASPACE Chief Executive Officer, recently stated in a press release, “Green Logs have a zero net-carbon footprint, completely avoid the use of petroleum products which also produce net carbon emissions, and burn up to 66% longer compared to conventional manufactured logs currently being sold. Since VIASPACE is vertically integrated– both growing Giant King Grass and manufacturing Green Logs– we can offer Green Logs as a superior product and at a lower price than competitors.”

VIASPACE, through its subsidiaries, also has several other avenues to generate revenue as part of their overall business plan. This includes developing and manufacturing disposable fuel cartridges for fuel cell powered electronic devices such as notebook computers, mobile phones and military systems.

Suspect Detection Systems Ltd. (SDSS.OB) is “One to Watch”

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Suspect Detection Systems Inc., via their subsidiary Suspect Detection Systems Ltd., is a developer of proprietary counter terror and crime prevention technology. The design of this technology is to identify threats in real-time, and prevent incidents before they are carried out. The company’s product line, the “COGITO”, is an aid to thwarting security threats.

The Company develops their advanced technologies based on extensive intelligence and counter-terrorism expertise accumulated in Israel and other countries worldwide. Former senior officials of Israeli security and experienced senior experts of the high-tech industry founded Suspect Detection Systems Ltd.

Suspect Detection Systems Ltd.’s “COGITO1002″ is a tool that helps law enforcement agencies in their war against international terrorism. It relies on unique and proprietary technology designed to identify malicious intent at border control and other checkpoints. The “COGITO1002″ is an automated kiosk-like station that enables the profiling and screening of passengers based on biofeedback indications.

The COGITO4M system enables military units to efficiently interrogate a hostile or indifferent civil population. Using the COGITO4M enables military units that might have no knowledge of the local language to identify who among the civilians is a wanted terrorist and where there might be a nearby ambush or mine trap.

The Company designed their COGITO Back-Office to manage and control all the test stations in a given site, nationwide operation, or international global operation. It serves as the central unit that stores all test histories, examinees profiles, and biometrics. It is responsible for system administration, data distribution, and interfacing to external systems and databases.

UK Fashion Retail Powerhouse Peacocks Picks Attunity Federate (ATTUF.OB) for IT Infrastructure Overhaul

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Attunity Ltd.,, is a global leader in enterprise software solutions with vast proficiency in real-time data integration, event capture, salient event presence and, in general, a seamless/efficient virtual mastery of a given business’s operational profile such that the business is able to identify actionable data and then service-enable that data for use by a suite of adaptive, rapid-deployment applications.

Today the Company announced that Attunity Federate (its data federation platform) has been selected by Peacocks, the renowned UK fashion giant, and will be employed as the backbone in a strategic data migration initiative, as well as servicing the 500+ store network’s real-time business intelligence needs.

Peacocks has set out to overhaul its IT infrastructure, and has chosen the Attunity Federate platform for its robust ability to replace the core legacy HP OpenVMS system with a Microsoft server technology-based solution which will allow for a streamlined/gradual migration of vital business data which is tied to various applications covering all areas of operation.

Solutions Architect and Project Manager at Peacocks, Mark Webbley, noted the superiority of the Attunity toolkit for migrating the huge amount of RMS-based data to SQL Server, and cited Attunity Federate as a lightweight, fast and intuitive solution that was able to satisfy the complex and challenging demands of migrating without hampering operations by delimiting change requests, BI and report services.

Webbley said the virtual data federation platform provided by Attunity Federate was a great way to implement a data federation strategy and accomplish all of its goals, especially shielding users from the underlying changes being made while reducing migration project support costs and enabling RMS or SQL access with on-the-fly data source configuration.

Webbley was “amazed” at how little time it took and how fast it was able to implement Attunity Federate for seamlessly abstracting the migration to an operable layer, allowing them to move data without affecting the application itself.

Regional Director for ATTUF, Martin Hamilton, was glad the Company could help Peacocks solve its IT challenges once more, suggesting it was a sure sign that Peacocks values the product quality and customer service Attunity provides.

Cord Blood America, Inc. (CBAI.OB) Drops Initial Storage Fee Over 76%

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Cord Blood America, Inc., – markets a powerful umbilical cord blood stem cell preservation service using a proprietary cryogenic process via subsidiary CorCell, – providing clients with an amazing way to invest in future, potentially life-saving medical treatments.

The Company announced today that CorCell will launch a new cost-reducing service for initial cell storage that will be offered as a payment option for established payment programs; the “Afford-A-Cord” program will only cost $495, a 76.2% savings that brings the option within striking distance of a much broader target market.

Co-founder and CEO of CBAI, Matthew Schissler, noted that the idea to create this service came from analysis of the target market and cited the upfront cost of the service as inordinate for families due to the timing; because of other costs associated with having a child, pressures and stresses, it is often very difficult for parents who want the best for their child’s future to take advantage of this breakthrough technology.

Schissler underscored the fact that the Company, as the undisputed price leader in this regard, is able to finally provide families searching for a solution to long-term health concerns, an affordable solution ($29/month for 18 years of storage after the birth) due in large part to CBAI’s strong financial position.

Schissler went on to say that he had firm faith in the concept that a variety of flexible payment plans was paramount to obtaining the maximum market penetration for CBAI’s services, and detailed the vast effort put into squaring away the legal and accounting aspects of the programs implementation, projecting a July 1, 2010 deadline launch date.

Schissler postulated that this would attract substantial new capital, and was confident that – between the added revenue from the program and the Company’s German branch in 2Q this year – CBAI would be setting a cord-blood subsidiary sales record this quarter.

Schissler stressed that Corcell’s current payment plans are, and will be, in full effect for the foreseeable future, and that the new Afford-A-Cord program is designed to lower the initial barrier for new customers, making the service available even for families with limited cash reserves.

The potential for stem cells is great and as the technologies emerge to utilize this resource, CBAI will be there to provide a winning service to customers and a return engine to investors.

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Azure Dynamics Corp. develops hybrid electric and electric components for commercial vehicles. The company today announced it is on track with its mission of ‘’Driving a World of Difference’ by providing Cintas Corp. (Nasdaq: CTAS) with its Balance(TM) Hybrid Electric walk-in vans.

Cintas provides highly specialized services to businesses of all types throughout North America; the company will begin deploying Azure Dynamics vans at its California facilities. This implementation qualifies the company for the state’s Hybrid Voucher Incentive Program funding with incentives of $25,000 per unit.

Dan Braun, senior vice president of Value Improvement Initiatives at Cintas, said securing the 100-unit order is in line with its mission to become a more environmentally friendly operation.

“We’re excited to be implementing this environmentally friendly solution for Cintas, and this order of 100 Azure Dynamics Balance(TM) Hybrid Electric vehicles is a significant first step in establishing our commitment to a greener fleet, and being socially responsible. In completing our due diligence, we selected Azure Dynamics hybrid electric system which combines with the Ford gasoline engine that is part of the current Cintas fleet. The engine-off-at-idle is also important feature of the hybrid electric to ensure reduction of vehicle emissions during the daily operation of our vehicles,” Braun stated in the press release.

The 100 units will be deployed in Sacramento, San Leandro, and Ontario, California, and represent the first large-scale deployment of green technology in the Cintas fleet. Cintas said it will evaluate options to integrate green fleet technology to more of its locations in the United States and Canada.

“We also benchmarked other fleets that have incorporated Azure Dynamics technology; most notably Purolator Courier. Purolator has a fleet that operates in similar conditions to ours, and has operated the hybrid electric vans for several years. This gave us confidence in the Azure Dynamics van’s ability to meet our durability and performance requirements,” said Kenneth Hoglund, director of Fleet Management at Cintas.

Neurocrine Biosciences Inc. (NBIX) Finds Solid Test Results for its Latest Pain Product, Continues Testing a Full Product Pipeline

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

In the bioscience world, a company’s existence is found in its product pipeline. In this respect, a constant flow of product at the various levels of approvals leads to a stable revenue flow and growth. If an investor can find a company that has positioned itself in this way, profit is sure to follow.

Neurocrine Biosciences Inc., a bioscience company that develops and markets pharmaceutical products directed at endocrinology oriented issues, operates across many differing product classes. Chief among these areas are pain, anxiety, depression, diabetes and insomnia. Given the breadth of this area, there are quite a few other afflictions where the company is pursuing development work with several at the Phase II testing stage.

Perhaps the company’s most recent success is its pain product elagolix. The product helps to address pelvic pain during menstruation and intercourse. Although this particular product is still in the test phase, it does demonstrate the company’s product pipeline is moving fairly quickly toward Phase III testing and product introduction. Other Phase II products include a mood disorder product and a cardiovascular product. Additional products along the company’s development stream are currently in Phase I testing indicating that one might safely assume a fairly constant revenue base. In terms of marketing, manufacturing and distribution, the company’s association with GlaxoSmithKline and Japan’s Dainippon Sumitomo Pharmaceuticals will also help as the products are approved.

As one might suspect, the company’s first quarter revenue results were not all that remarkable as the testing process for its pipeline products continue. It does, however, report that each area being worked is on track and on schedule. Product development timelines indicate 9 months to a year as approvals are reached. In a general way, Neurocrine Biosciences appears to have its timing set for product release as the world economy begins to exit its current situation. This is a statement of pure speculation but one that may well bode well for a company poised to break out toward solid profit.
