InvestSource Featured Company: Funds Tech Corp (FNDS.OB) Entering the Financial Card Services Market Worldwide

Monday, February 4th, 2008

Many take a bank account for granted. Around the world, however, over 50% of workers cannot gain access to money changing options. Increasing use of pre-paid debit cards, however, gives access to millions looking for financial services.

Funds Tech Corp., a financial software/hardware transaction processing company, works to offer customers with limited banking opportunity pre-paid debit cards. Additionally, the company is now working to offer payroll options for companies that are increasingly forced to pay these same employees cash for services. The company estimates that the potential worldwide market for these types of debt card services is over $100 billion annually.

Further market opportunity exists when foreign workers are considered. The company has instituted a services product that enables many foreign workers the ability to efficiently send money home to relatives in a similar but different way than Western Union. Revenue is generated through fee per transaction at 750,000 ATM’s and 5.5 million locations worldwide.

Although the company has been finding limited success in North American markets, it is realizing its major growth projections in Africa and on the European continent. South African wholesaler’s have found a positive response and are working toward certification and expansion across the continent. European countries are also beginning to take advantage with alliances and customers experiencing positive results. All customers of the company’s services indicate plans for expansion.

Diversification of the company’s stock base is the current focus of the company internally. A recent 2-1 stock split has increased outstanding shares from 7 million to over 14 million. The company indicates that its goals are being met as planned. From a general perspective, goal setting appears to point toward the end of 2008 as a positive revenue period.

D & E Communications, Inc. (DECC) – An Opportunity for Investment

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

D & E Communications, Inc. (DECC), located in Ephrata, Pennsylvania is a provider of various communication services. The company offers high-speed data, internet access, local and long distance telephone service, IT services, network monitoring, security solutions, and video services.

In August 2007, the company announced that it would carry the Big Ten Network, a new national network launched that month dedicated exclusively to Big Ten Conference television programming. Dave Moore, vice president of marketing, believes the network will be an instant hit with Penn State fans in the area.

“We’re really very pleased that our customers will be able to get the Big Ten Network from the beginning,” said Moore. “State College is obviously Big Ten country, and I expect the Big Ten Network to become a popular destination very, very quickly.”

For the third quarter of 2007, the company reported improvements in operating and net incomes compared to the same quarter in 2006. However, operating revenues showed a slight decrease due to a decline in directory revenue, the result of the renegotiation of a contract with the directory publisher.

“I am pleased with the progress that we are making in growing our broadband connections, the number of subscribers in our CLEC markets and in the improving financial performance of our Systems Integration segment,” said James W. Morozzi, President and CEO of D&E Communications.

Is the InvestSource Featured Company Universal Property Development & Acquisition Corp (UPDA.OB) Just a Management Cash Cow?

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

Can fossil fuels make for good business in the long term? What do we dislike everyday more than gasoline and heating oil prices? A world of alternative energy sources is the new management mantra. We may love to hate the Middle East Sheikhs living off nearly centurion crude prices, but let us not forget good old Texas in the ‘liquid gold’ rush!

Universal Property Development & Acquisition Corp. is clearly set for profit growth. The company not only has bounteous oil and natural gas assets, but assiduously targets new acquisitions for vertical integration. Geer Tank Trucks is a striking example of forward thinking by management, because control over logistics is a sustainable competitive edge when it comes to marketing energy products to consumers. Speaking of marketing, Universal Property Development & Acquisition Corp also has Continental Fuels (OTCBB:CFUL) in its war chest of achievements.

There is a fly in this business ointment: solar, wind, and hydrogen fuel cells are missing from the portfolio, when we view Universal Property Development & Acquisition Corp as a holding stock in the energy sector. That is not to insinuate that the management has given no thought to the future of alternative fuels, but to suggest that the wise will queue up for a slice of this cake without any further loss of time!

Choosing between profits and risk in business can make investors like children in a toy shop. OTCBB:UPDA is special because it gives you best of both worlds. Lick your chops as oil prices inexorably head north, while you bask in the security of a management team with a clear vision of the future of the energy business.
