Kobex Minerals, Inc. (KXM)
Today we are reporting on Kobex Minerals, Inc. (KXM), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Kobex Minerals, Inc. formed in September of 2009 by the combination of Kobex Resources Inc., IMA Exploration Inc., and International Barytex Resources Ltd. The Company seeks to identify, acquire, and develop deposits that have the potential to be world class, in the lower cost quartile and in an acceptable risk environment. Kobex Minerals is a Canadian company listed on the Toronto Venture Exchange (KXM.V) and the NYSE Amex Exchange (KXM). The Company has their headquarters in Vancouver, British Columbia.
Kobex Minerals has a highly experienced Board and Management consisting of professionals with significant development and mine management experience. The Company's properties include the Mel Property and the Barb Property.
The 100 percent owned Mel zinc-lead-barite property consists of 257 claims covering 5,380 hectares. The property is in the Watson Lake Mining District of the Yukon. Prospectors first staked the property in 1967. Although the Company has not proposed a current exploration program on the Mel property, further work is warranted and Kobex is currently re-evaluating their strategy on this property. Drilling to test the deeper potential of the Main Mel Zone is also under consideration.
The Main Mel Zone (as previously disclosed by International Barytex Resources) was the focus of a 48 hole program that resulted in an Indicated Mineral resource of 6.78 million tonnes of 7.1 percent zinc, 2.03 percent lead and 54.69 percent barite. The Main Zone remains open to depth.
The wholly owned Barb property consists of 21 claims (440 hectares). The property is approximately 100 km north of the Town of Watson Lake. Two mineralized zones have undergone identification on the property. These are the Matt Berry and the Money zones.
The Company has not proposed a current exploration program on the Barb property. However, they state that a future exploration program should include a ground geophysical survey program to detail selected airborne geophysical targets. These geophysical anomalies would then undergo testing by diamond drilling. One high priority target is located immediately to the west and parallel to the Money Zone. Kobex is currently re-evaluating their strategy on this property. The Mel and Barb properties have additional exploration potential. This includes geophysical targets that warrant drill testing.
Kobex Minerals, Inc. (KXM) closed Monday's trading session at $0.57, even with yesterday’s close. The average volume for the last 60 days is 10,090. The 52-week low/high is $0.54/$1.03.
ARCA biopharma, Inc. (ABIO)
Stock Fortune Teller, StockRich, PennyStockVille, PennyInvest, StockEgg, OTCPennyPicks.com, and OTCNewsAlerts.com reported earlier on ARCA biopharma, Inc. (ABIO), and we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
ARCA biopharma, Inc. works to develop genetically targeted therapies for cardiovascular diseases. Their lead product candidate, Gencaro™ (bucindolol hydrochloride), is an investigational, pharmacologically unique beta-blocker and mild vasodilator undergoing development for atrial fibrillation. ARCA biopharma has their headquarters in Broomfield, Colorado.
The Company's business focus combines expertise in cardiovascular pathophysiology, molecular genetics, and clinical development. ARCA has identified common genetic variations that they believe predict individual patient response to Gencaro. This gives it the potential to be the first genetically targeted atrial fibrillation prevention treatment. ARCA is collaborating with Laboratory Corporation of America to develop the companion genetic test for Gencaro.
ARCA is planning to initiate a Phase 3 clinical study of Gencaro in AF patients with heart failure (HF) and left ventricular dysfunction. The Company believes AF is an attractive indication for Gencaro because data from BEST, the previously conducted Phase 3 HF trial involving Gencaro in 2,708 HF patients, suggest Gencaro may have a potentially significant effect in reducing and/or preventing AF.
In January of his year, ARCA biopharma announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued a patent on methods for determining whether to administer or prescribe bucindolol to a patient based on whether the patient has a specific genotype – homozygous for the arginine 389 polymorphism in the beta-1 adrenergic receptor. The patent (USP# 8,093,286) entitled "Methods for Treatment with Bucindolol Based on Genetic Targeting," provides intellectual property protection in the U.S. for this novel approach to treating patients with bucindolol.
Last week, ARCA biopharma announced results of analyses of atrial fibrillation (AF) data from the BEST trial, a previously conducted Phase 3 heart failure (HF) trial involving Gencaro (bucindolol hydrochloride), in 2,708 advanced heart failure patients. Researchers believe increasing plasma norepinephrine (NE) levels as a measure of adrenergic activity herald worsening of HF in patients with reduced left ventricular ejection fractions (HFREF). Researchers found that Gencaro's norepinephrine lowering properties appear to contribute to its effects in all HFREF patients, but in particular those who have only beta-1 389 arginine receptors.
ARCA biopharma, Inc. (ABIO) closed Monday's trading at $0.91, down 0.01%, on 17,800 volume with 58 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 155,023. The 52-week low/high is $0.87/$3.20.

ProGaming Platforms Corp. Announces Ten-for-One Forward Stock Split
In March, when FluoroPharma Medical, a developer of unique imaging agents for use with positron emission tomography (PET), filed their 10-K for fiscal 2011, there were no surprises, leading Zack’s Investment Research to reaffirm its $2.00 price target and recommendation of “Outperform”. In that same month, FluoroPharma announced that they had signed a letter of intent with SGS Life Sciences to provide clinical research services for Phase II trials of FluoroPharma’s CardioPET imaging agent for determining cardiac viability. It’s an important step for the company, since CardioPET is expected to be one of FPMI’s first products to reach the marketplace, where it would offer a superior alternative to stress testing and represent a major market opportunity.
The three primary products for FluoroPharma are:
• CardioPET – For cardiac viability assessment (detecting regions of metabolic insufficiency)
• BFET – For myocardial perfusion imaging (measuring cardiovascular blood flow)
• VasoPET – For inflamed atherosclerotic plaque imaging (detecting inflamed plaque)
PET technology fills a critical gap in diagnostic imaging, allowing doctors and researchers to see important biochemical processes taking place at the cellular and molecular level, something that other imaging technologies simply cannot match. To do this requires chemical tracers that can integrate themselves into the process being monitored.
There are approximately 12 million PET imaging procedures carried out in the U.S. each year, but currently available PET tracers have significant drawbacks, including high cost, safety issues, and supply shortages. And most of these scans are for the diagnosis of cancer. As a result, there is a growing demand for new radiopharmaceuticals, including tracers for heart imaging such as those under development by FPMI. Basically, FluoroPharm’s drugs improve diagnostic accuracy over existing technologies, improving patient assessment. And it’s not just an American market. Although the U.S. has traditionally been the biggest imaging market, the primary destination today for new PET scanners is China, meaning an increased demand for new tracers.
ENSERVCO, a provider of well-site services to the domestic onshore conventional and unconventional oil and gas industries, today reported financial results for its fiscal year and
fourth quarter ended December 31, 2011.
Full-year revenue increased 32 percent to $24.7 million compared to $18.6 million reported in
Gross margin for 2011 improved to 24 percent compared to gross margin of 23 percent reported in fiscal 2010.
While adjusted EBITDA for fiscal 2011 improved 47 percent to $3.1 million from $2.1 million reported in 2010, ENSERVCO reported a full-year loss from operations of $2.2 million, or a loss of $(0.09) per share, compared to an operating loss of $2.3 million, or a loss of $(0.10) per share, in 2010.
“We made significant progress in the expansion of our domestic service territory and the build-out of our equipment fleet during 2011, and these efforts helped fuel our top-line growth during the full fiscal year,” Rick Kasch, ENSERVCO president and CFO stated in the press release. “Unfortunately, we just experienced one of the warmest winters on record across much of our
service area, and this severely curtailed fourth-quarter demand for our core heating services. Demand was particularly weak in the Northeast’s Marcellus Shale region, where fourth-quarter revenue declined by approximately 65 percent versus the same period of 2010. In light of stronger demand in the central and north central United States, we redeployed equipment and personnel to these regions in recent months.”
The company’s fourth-quarter revenue increased 6 percent to $6.4 million from $6.0 million in the fourth quarter of 2010.
Gross profit margin was 21 percent versus 28 percent in the 2010 fourth quarter.

Xtreme Oil & Gas, an independent energy company engaged in the exploration, development, and production of crude oil, today announced its financial results and operational highlights for fiscal year 2011.
“During the previous year Xtreme Oil & Gas achieved numerous milestones,” Willard G. McAndrew III, CEO of Xtreme stated in the press release. “We are pleased to have achieved an operating profit and excited to utilize these gains in fueling growth across both business lines. Management has successfully transitioned ourselves from a start-up to an emerging oil-producing company with several profitable revenue streams.”
For the 12 months ended December 31, 2011, the company reported revenue of $2.4 million compared to 2010 full-year revenue of $89,835. The company attributes the increase to revenues generated from drilling on its saltwater disposal well and the completion of its Five Star project in Texas.
Oil production expenses for 2011 totaled $194,848 compared to expenses of $241,896 reported for the comparable 12 months of 2010. Loss on disposal of properties totaled $48,356 for the year ended December 31, 2011, directly stemming from the company’s attempts to recover damages on the Lionheart property.
The company reported 2011 net losses before tax of $325,088, or $(0.01) per share on a fully diluted basis, compared with net losses of $7.0 million, or $(0.17) per share on a fully diluted basis, for 2010.
Xtreme said it believes it is useful to consider this non-GAAP measure as it excludes significant one-time accounting charges related to the notes and warrants issued during the third quarter of 2011.
McAndrew III noted the company’s efforts to ramp-up production in a couple properties that are expected to generate continued strength, as well as noted several other operational achievements.
“During 2011 we made investments to increase our production at our Texas and Oklahoma properties that will lead to continued growth in 2012. We also progressed in our high-margin saltwater disposal business and have recently completed construction of our saltwater disposal facility. We have received letters of intent to dispose up to 15,000 barrels of saltwater per day from AMEREX and Southern Wellhead,” McAndrew III stated. “Management believes that this business line will provide an additional $7 million in revenue for each well when it reaches full volume. Recent oil production in Texas and Oklahoma combined with anticipated recovery in Kansas and growth of our salt water disposal business strongly positions us for increased earnings, improved margins, and enhanced shareholder value.”
Wave Systems has established a strong position in enterprise network endpoint encryption technologies, with offerings like the EMBASSY® Remote Administration Server (ERAS) that gives businesses a powerful solution to costly, time-consuming, full-disk encryption (FDE) methods like deploying self-encrypting drives (SEDs) across enterprise laptops or other hardware. Moving to exploit this enviable market position, the company has entered a key partnership with award-winning UK-based IT security distributor Vigil Software Ltd., as part of the company’s strategic channel expansion targeting Europe, Middle East, and Africa (EMEA), Wave Systems is putting their full portfolio of industry-leading solutions before EMEA markets via this distribution agreement.
Vigil used to be a distribution partner for Safend, which is now part of WAVX with its own division, offering the Safend Data Protection Suite for securing endpoint data, making them the perfect company to act as a distribution node to meet the swelling demand in EMEA markets for Wave’s portfolio of products. Vigil is fully authorized under this new agreement to distribute the entire suite of WAVX offerings and will likely be put to the test getting the mission-critical endpoint data security, data-in-motion, and hardware-based two-factor authentication solutions (which use an advanced Trusted Platform Module architecture) into the hands of eagerly awaiting businesses in the EMEA region.
Founder of Vigil Software, Alex Teh, emphasized the rapidly increasing sophistication and frequency of cyber-attacks which have left conventional software security solutions highly vulnerable, clearly pleased to be offering Vigil’s vast network of resellers the WAVX platform that features powerful embedded security solutions. Encryption, retention, and authentication just got a whole lot easier, especially for UK enterprises, who will feel the most immediate impact of this important agreement.
VP of Channels at WAVX, Mony Bulocinic, was excited to see the prospects develop for this partnership and reminded investors of the possible momentum generated in EMEA markets via this systematic push by the company to expand channel focus, offering these low hanging fruits “best-in-class managed encryption and authentication solutions” to meet emerging security requirements. Bulocinic underscored Vigil’s huge network resellers and specialists, well versed in the security market and able to make this agreement pay off for both companies with highly-focused sales opportunities that are custom tailored to client needs.
It is a serious strategic push by WAVX into sectors ripe for the picking, with vast swathes of enterprises that want to migrate to a tighter data security profile but lack the option/availability. Rapidly growing data security sectors in all primary targets and a winning solution set are very positive indicators for WAVX as this move to secure a broad channel distribution arrangement with Vigil heats up.
The ERAS provides a single console for easily managing an entire fleet of SEDs and WAVX provides automated, turn-key administration of native Win7 Microsoft encryption, employing Safend Encryptor for software encryption tasks, as well as data-in-motion/removable media encryption. Leveraging the hardware-based chip encryption framework of the SED architecture, WAVX software shields critical data from attacks much better and faster than extant software encryption solutions, while enabling full system control. Everything from drive initialization/locking to user management/recovery, with crypto erase for all Opal-based, proprietary and solid-state SEDs.
The ERAS Safend suite includes Protector/Inspector for shunting unauthorized users, devices or malware, sealing physical ports, wireless interfaces, and removable media via an advanced classification hierarchy (using model, serial number, and resident inspection/classification engine capabilities) that cauterizes data leakage through email and file transfer/control. Total transparency of the hardware Trusted Platform Module security chips via Wave Endpoint Monitor allows customers to slam Advanced Persistent Threats, sniffing out unauthorized changes to the pre-boot environment as the systems power up.
