Is Cloud Computing The Answer?

OTCBB:VCLD, Verecloud hopes so. However, I have my doubts! I grabbed this profile of Verecloud from their recent press release. I think we will have to see further development before widespread acceptance of the technology.

Turbulent ABK Shares Pass $1 Again, Up 24%

The last few days of trading for ABK shareholders have been turbulent.  The stock has risen above $1, and has fallen back below. Shareholders must be expecting another bounce, but will it happen? There were no clear causes for the 24% increase in share price.  Penny stocks can be very volatile, as we can see in the trading range for ABK. The recent volatility in share price could be due to short covering, maybe! I made a small fortune the last time ABK ran up, I hope others get the same opportunity!

Always consult a registered investments adviser prior to making any investment, especially when considering penny stock investments! Investing in penny stocks can result in total loss investment.

ZAGG No Longer a Penny Stock, But!

I realize ZAGG is no-longer a penny stock, but the stock represents a real opportunity for gains, IMHO! I wrote about the company when Verizon (VZ) started selling the MOTOROLA (MOT) DROID . At the time the share price was near where it is today, but today there is IMHO much more potential for gain. My guess is that we will continue to see increased demand for ZAGG products which are used to protect electronics devices like the Apple (AAPL) iPad, and other devices. The company recently released news that their numbers are much better than expected!

"Zagg also lifted its full-year forecast. The company now expects revenue for 2010 will be up 70 percent over 2009 levels, suggesting $65 million. That's up from a previous forecast for a 30 percent increase."

Hot Off The Press EVSI Selected By General Motors

I thought this was pretty good news, EVSI had no volume today. I expect to see some activity in the market for EVSI tomorrow. The news hit the wires well after the market closed today.

General Motors Selects Envision Solar's EnvisionTrak(TM) Solar Trees(R), CleanCharge(TM) Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

Envision Solar International, Inc., (EVSI ) , a leading sustainable infrastructure designer and developer, announced today that the company has been selected by General Motors, LLC to install its CleanCharge(TM) solar powered electric-vehicle (EV) charging stations integrated into EnvisionTrak(TM) tracking Solar Trees(R) at a number of prominent locations.

"We are pleased to have been selected by General Motors for these strategic installations that will enable Chevy Volts to leverage clean solar power to recharge their batteries without relying on carbon fuel generated electricity," said Bob Noble, CEO of Envision Solar. "We applaud GM's commitment to clean energy as well as green job creation through this initiative."

The Chevy Volt extended-range electric car is expected to hit showrooms in November 2010 and will be rolled out initially in California, Michigan, Washington, D.C., Texas and New York. New Jersey and Connecticut will join in mid-2011.

"GM is committed to reducing carbon emissions and reliance on petroleum," said Tom Stephens, GM vice chairman, global product operations. "We chose Envision Solar because its clean charging infrastructure allows us to maximize the environmental benefits of our electric vehicles through the use of clean renewable energy and further demonstrates our commitment to the proliferation of sustainable EV charging infrastructure."

Envision Solar's Solar Tree with EnvisionTrak(TM) is a highly engineered parking lot solar array that is 20 to 25 percent more productive than conventional fixed solar arrays, due to the incorporation of dual access tracking which enables the canopy to follow the sun throughout the day. "We have designed this technology with an architectural focus that enhances the overall aesthetic of corporate and commercial campuses," Noble added. "The addition of our CleanCharge system makes this a truly comprehensive design and technology package, offering a value-added investment for businesses anticipating the dramatic growth in the electric vehicle market over the next decade."

WYNX Three Month Chart Rocks, BUT!

For the three months ended September 30, 2010, CUI received new sales orders in the amount of $12,011,947. These numbers represent a 67% year-over-year increase in new orders, up from $7,204,228 in the third quarter 2009.

Significantly, the year-to-date numbers also reflect a dramatic increase to $32,176,698 in sales orders through September 30, 2010 from $19,237,430 in 2009. This represents a growth rate of more than 67% or up $12,939,267.


Okay, that's great, but lets talk about completed sales. Orders are great, but the product has to be manufactured and shipped to the the customer and the customer has to make payment. I appreciate the market CUI is operating in, but I am cautious of their current debt to cash ratio. Additionally, I am encouraged with Wells Fargo Capital extending an $8 million credit facility. Again, sales orders are great, but they have to be completed!

BFRE BlueFire Renewables Slammed %18 on Good News?

  • So BFRE is spending $296 million! What is going to drive demand for the product? 
  • Their are alternative fuel companies which are not operating at full capacity now! Does BFRE offer a suitable product at a lower cost of production than their competitors? 
  • I'm just trying to understand how this is a good thing for BlueFire Renewables shareholders.

BlueFire Renewables, Inc. (OTCBB: BFRE),  focused on changing the world's transportation fuel paradigm through the production of renewable fuels from non-food cellulosic wastes, announced that it has finalized and signed an Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract for its planned cellulosic ethanol facility in Fulton, MS.  The facility will be engineered and built by Wanzek Construction, Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of MasTec, Inc. (NYSE: MTZ), for a fixed price of $296 million which includes an approximately $100 million biomass power plant as part of the facility.

Here we see growth in the alternative energy sector, but is it sustainable without federal subsidies? The only way these sorts of alternative fuels are sustainable now is with higher energy costs. We could see continued subsidies for alternative fuels and higher oil prices. It will be interesting to see if this operation fairs better than the flood of struggling companies in the alternatives fuels industry: QTWW, PEIX.

WLOC, Williow Creek Moves to OTCBB

It does happen, but it does not happen often.  WLOC is graduating in a sense to the OTCBB from the pinksheets.  Listing on the OTCBB will require WLOC to become fully reporting, it does not guarantee the company will be a great success.

"The move back to the OTCBB has been the central focus for our management team. With this hurdle cleared, we will now be able to begin executing our corporate objectives of acquiring and developing mineral properties,"

ACTC, Advanced Cell Technology Updates on Myoblast

September 29th, Advanced Cell Technology releases update on Phase I of its human clinical trials. ACTC reported that they are in the process of reviewing the results of four independent studies.

"We believe our phase II study would represent one of the most advanced stem cell studies conducted to date," said William M. Caldwell IV, ACT's Chairman and CEO. "In addition to evaluating our clinical options, the Company is also considering the most effective way to finance the cost of the study, which could include grants, partnerships or capital provided by foundations. We are also in negotiations with several countries in Europe to conduct a similar trial. The market potential in the EU is even greater than in the U.S. by up to 50% in patient population size by some estimates."

ACTC has been cleared by the FDA to proceed to phase II trial expected to begin in the second half of 2011.

DIGA,Digital Angel Looks to OTCBB to Change Luck

Digital Angel started out on the OTCBB several years ago, and now they are headed back.  The cost of remaining on the NASDAQ can be cost prohibitive. In recent news the company recently rejected an offer from PositiveID (NASD:PSID) to acquire the company; PositiveID promptly withdrew its offer.
Digital Angel's gross and net income have dipped dramatically over the last three years. It is not clear if the recent decline is intentional, or if demand for the company's product has declined.
On September 29th, the company suggested increased demand for their Destron Fearing electronic identification products in Canada as a result of recent animal health and traceability incentive programs and regulations.

"Federal regulation requires that all Canadian cattle be tagged with an approved Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tag prior to moving from their current location or leaving their farm of origin. The Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) is enforcing the national identification and movement reporting requirements for cattle under the authority of the Health of Animals Regulations."

The company has struggled, however they have managed to generate significant revenues.  As an OTCBB company they are attractive because they have  revenue. It will be interesting to see if Digital Angel finds its way to profitability,or if the are acquired!
