Daily Stock List
Casey Container Corp. (CSEY)
Daytrader Zack, Buying penny stocks, HotStockChat, and FeedBlitz reported earlier on Casey Container Corp. (CSEY), and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Founded in 2010, Casey Container Corp. engages in the design and custom manufacture of biodegradable PET, HDPE, and other plastic polymer preforms, bottles, and containers. These products are for use in the bottled water, beverage, and consumer products industries. The Company offers biodegradable plastics packaging solutions using the science of the EcoPure® additive and technology. Casey Container has their corporate headquarters in Scottsdale, Arizona.
For Preforms, the Company manufactures bulk and custom PET preforms, ready to be blown into bottles at a client's facility. For Plastic Bottles, they manufacture finished PET food-quality bottles. They also manufacture Plastic Containers for household cleaners, shampoos, facial cleansers, lotions, as well as other products. Casey Container includes the best-of-class Eco-Pure® additive in all of their plastics. They do this through a strategic alliance with Bio-Tec Environmental. Casey Container blends innovative biodegradability technology with traditional plastics manufacturing to deliver an environmentally responsible product. PET plastic will be available initially. The Company plans to expand rapidly into other thermoplastics such as HDPE (high-density polyethylene).
EcoPure® is a second-generation additive. When added to a resin type during the manufacturing process, it renders plastics biodegradable. The EcoPure™ technology used to make the Company's plastic packaging solutions biodegradable are useable with polystyrene (PS), polypropylene (PP), polyethyeleneterapthalate (PET), polyethylene (PE), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), and most other types of polymer.
The EcoPure™ technology adds nutrients and other organic compounds that weaken the polymer chain. This allows microbial action to colonize in and around the plastic. The bottles, now completely metabolized, turn into inert humus (biomass), biogas (anaerobic), or Co2 (aerobic).
Casey Container bottles have a shelf life of normal plastic. When placed in an aerobic or anaerobic landfill, their bottles biodegrade in 2-10 years. This depends on the amount of biodegradable additive in the bottle, the gram weight of each bottle/container, and the microbial activity of the landfill it is in.
The Company's bottles can mix into the standard PET recycling stream, while bioplastics cannot. They designed their biodegradable plastic packaging solutions to meet strict standards for shelf life, appearance, and longevity. This makes them especially suited for retail product environments. Casey Container is presently seeking funding to build manufacturing facilities in Florida and Arizona.

Beacon Enterprise Solutions Provides Earnings Call Webcast for Fiscal 2011 Financial Results
Beacon Enterprise Solutions Reports Fiscal 2011 Financial Results
Beacon Reports Significant Increases in Service Ticket Volume and Locations Served
Many people, and many companies, are glad to see 2011 sink into the past. At best the year is seen as the tail end of the worst recession in recent memory. But for Beacon Enterprise Solutions Group, an emerging global provider of turnkey IT infrastructure solutions, 2011 was a year of increased sales, reduced operating expenses, and an improved cash position. Perhaps more significantly, the year saw the successful implementation of important and positive changes within the company.
From a regional middle-market emphasis, Beacon has moved to a global professional services model. Instead of a 95% sales and 5% delivery model, the company has targeted a 5% sales and 95% delivery model, with more of a focus on organic growth in core areas. Even their office structure has changed, from a branch office management approach to a centralized/regional structure. Beacon has also implemented a cloud-based solution to facilitate the timely flow of information between business functions within the organization and to better manage communications with employees, vendors, contractors, customers, and shareholders.
The idea behind the changes was to capitalize on some of the key reasons that clients choose Beacon:
• Beacon provides a single integrated point of contact in an otherwise fragmented industry segment.
• Beacon has a global oriented cloud-based system, making it possible to effectively deal with the many currency, language, and other challenges of doing business on a global scale.
• Beacon can reduce client IT infrastructure expenditures by 30% or more, with additional savings in contract administration, vendor management, and accounting costs.
For example, Beacon’s migration to an integrated financial CRM/PSA system has led to a major increase in the size of its customer base in fiscal 2011, now totaling 212 locations in 51 countries.
With changes firmly in place, and a number of prospects now in the works, Beacon is looking forward to a strong 2012.

Ampio Pharmaceuticals, Inc., a company that discovers and develops new uses for previously approved drugs and new molecular entities (NMEs), today announced it has completed the expanded patient enrollment phase of its Ampion™ In Knee (AIK) trials in Australia, adding 42 patients to the original 60-patient study.
Ampion is the company’s non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug that appears to have a significant role in the homeostasis of inflammation. Ampio believes this gives the drug the potential to be used in a broad array of inflammatory conditions.
Ampio Chief Regulatory Officer Dr. Vaughan Clift noted the importance of the initial clinical trial, which led to the approval of the expanded trial.
“The initial trial was an important clinical milestone for the company as it was the first time that Ampion was administered as a treatment for an inflammatory condition in humans and was well tolerated with no reported treatment related adverse events. Details of the initial trial can be found on the Australian clinical trials register at http://www.anzctr.org.au/trial_view.aspx?ID=343138. The absence of any adverse events in the initial AIK study provided the basis for IRB approval of this expanded trial, with 42 additional patients, each receiving either a direct intra-articular injection of Ampion or the saline placebo,” Dr. Clift stated in the press release.
Ampio Chief Scientific Officer Dr. Bar-Or discovered the Ampion molecule during his study of patients with immune suppression following head injury. He has published numerous scientific papers on the drug’s immune modulating effect in vitro in prominent scientific journals and has also presented his findings at national and international scientific meetings.
“We are hopeful this naturally occurring molecule may provide safe and effective pain relief in humans,” Dr. Bar-Or stated. “Medical treatment of chronic pain would be improved if physicians were able to prescribe an effective analgesic/anti-inflammatory medicine without the damaging side effects associated with steroids, such as infection, ruptured tendons and weakening of joints when injected locally.”
The raw clinical data from the trial is now being evaluated by biostatisticians employed by the Clinical Research Organization with results expected in the next four to six weeks.

“We believe that joining forces with the DRI and Schneider Children’s, two of the world’s foremost diabetes research organizations, will enable us to accelerate the remaining development and study of our non-invasive diabetes management projects, and ultimately bring these ground-breaking products to market,” PositiveID chairman and CEO William J. Caragol stated in the press release.
PositiveID is currently developing Easy Check™, a non-invasive breath glucose detection device; GlucoChip™, a continuous glucose-sensing microchip; and the iglucose™ glucometer, a blood glucose meter equipped with PositiveID’s FDA-cleared iglucose technology.
Easy Check is a non-invasive breath glucose detection device that serves as an alternative to pricking a patient’s finger to get blood sugar readings. Easy Check is currently in development in Israel.
GlucoChip is an in vivo continuous glucose-sensing microchip based on PositiveID’s patented “Embedded Bio-Sensor System” coupled with the company’s FDA-cleared RFID implantable microchip. PositiveID says this system will allow people with diabetes to monitor glucose levels in a less invasive manner than current monitoring systems.
PositiveID’s iglucose mobile health system was cleared by the FDA in November 2011. The system allows individuals with diabetes to share, at user consent, blood glucose readings with family members, caregivers and healthcare professionals via text message, e-mail or fax.
“The DRI is intently focused on finding a cure for diabetes, and we believe that working with respected authorities like Professor Phillip and Schneider Children’s can help us reach our goal. While we continue to pursue our primary goal, we also look to develop the most promising research and technology advances, like those being developed by PositiveID, to improve the lives and outcomes of people affected by diabetes. We look forward to working with Schneider Children’s and are pleased to continue our relationship with the PositiveID team,” Jay Skyler, M.D., deputy director of the DRI stated.

SPI Solar, a leading vertically integrated photovoltaic solar developer and engineering, procurement and construction services provider, today announced that it will design, engineer and construct an 11.3 MW fixed ground mount solar energy facility, which will provide solar generated electricity to the power grid in southern New Jersey. The solar energy facility will meet the state of New Jersey’s Renewable Energy Portfolio Standard (RPS), which is one of the most aggressive in the United States.
The contract was awarded to SPI Solar by Seashore Solar Development, LLC, a New Jersey based solar development company that is working to gather financing so construction can begin in the first quarter of 2012.
“This project is a perfect fit for us. It will allow us to leverage our talents in designing, engineering and constructing a world-class solar energy facility in one of the most exciting solar markets in the United States today,” said Stephen Kircher, CEO,SPI Solar in a press statement.
The SPI Solar project is expected to create approximately 200 jobs for the residents of Egg Harbor Township. “As residents of New Jersey, it is very rewarding to help our state reduce its dependency on fossil fuel-generated electricity by offsetting it with clean and sustainable photovoltaic solar electricity. Bringing jobs to the local area is a welcomed bonus,” said Matt Feinstone, Managing Member, Seashore Solar.
New Jersey is one of the fastest growing markets for solar photovoltaic in the United States. It is second only to California in terms of installed capacity and installations. According to New Jersey’s energy master plan, by 2020 the state expects to get 22.5% of its electricity from renewable sources of which solar power is the most prominent.
