CorMedix, Inc. is a development-stage pharmaceutical company headquartered in Bridgewater, New Jersey. The Company is looking to in-license, develop and commercialize therapeutic products for the prevention and treatment of cardiac and renal dysfunction, also known as cardiorenal disease. Their goal is to treat kidney disease by reducing the commonly associated cardiovascular and metabolic complications. Essentially, they are treating the kidney to treat the heart.
The Company's foundational technology prevents infection and clotting that can occur with the use of chronic CVCs (central venous catheters). Chronic CVCs are frequently used in the life-sustaining "artificial kidney" process known as hemodialysis (HD). CorMedix has identified, licensed and advanced two products designed to keep implanted chronic CVCs infection-free and fully flowing.
One product is CRMD003 (Neutrolin ®). This is an antimicrobial/anticoagulant solution. The second product is CRMD004. This is a "thixotropic" gel that changes from a semi-solid to a free-flowing liquid under the pressure of insertion into (or withdrawal from) a catheter.
CorMedix is currently pursuing the CE marking approval process in Europe, for CRMD003 (Neutrolin®) for the prevention of catheter related bloodstream infections and maintenance of catheter patency in tunneled, cuffed, central venous catheters used for vascular access in hemodialysis patients. The Company's therapeutic candidates for cardiorenal disease may be small molecules, biologicals, devices and/or diagnostics (tests) that enable therapy.
Last week, CorMedix announced the appointment of Mr. Randy Milby as the Company's Chief Operating Officer. Mr. Milby brings wide-ranging commercial operational experience to the Company having worked as the Global Business Director of Applied Biosciences and other management positions at Dupont from 1999 through 2010.

BioFuel Energy Corp. (BIOF)
StockEgg, OTCPicks, WiseAlerts, Bull in Advantage, PennyStockVille, BullRally, PennyInvest, Stock Spike, HotOTC, StockRich, CoolPennyStocks, and MadPennyStocks reported earlier on BioFuel Energy Corp. (BIOF), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
BioFuel Energy Corp. produces and sells ethanol, distillers' grain and corn oil through their two ethanol production facilities located in Wood River, Nebraska and Fairmont, Minnesota. The Company works closely with Cargill, one of the world's leading agribusiness companies, with whom BioFuel Energy has an extensive commercial relationship. The two plant locations were selected primarily based on access to corn supplies, the availability of rail transportation and natural gas and Cargill's competitive position in the area. BioFuel Energy lists on the NASDAQ Capital Market. The Company has their corporate headquarters in Denver, Colorado.
BioFuel Energy is a holding company with no operations of their own. They are the sole managing member of BioFuel Energy, LLC (the LLC), which is itself a holding company and indirectly owns all of the Company's operating assets. As the sole managing member of the LLC, BioFuel Energy operates and controls all of the business and affairs of the LLC and their subsidiaries. The Company's ethanol plants are owned and operated by the Operating Subsidiaries of the LLC.
BioFuel Energy produces 230 million gallons annually of fuel grade ethanol and 720,000 tons of distillers' grains at their facilities. They deliver these products to fuel blenders and agricultural users locally and across the country. At each location, Cargill has a strong local presence and owns adjacent grain storage and handling facilities, which BioFuel Energy leases from them. Cargill provides corn procurement services, markets the ethanol the Company produces and provides transportation logistics for BioFuel Energy's two plants under long-term contracts.
The Company's primary source of revenue is the sale of ethanol. They also receive revenue from the sale of distillers' grain, which is a residual co-product of the processed corn used in the production of ethanol and sells as animal feed. Distillers' grain sells by the ton and, based upon the amount of moisture retained in the product, can be sold either "wet or dry".
The corn oil produced at the Company's plants is used primarily as a feedstock for the production of biodiesel and as an animal feed ingredient. The corn oil produced in Wood River sells to the same independent third party marketer that purchases the Company's dried distillers grain from that facility. Most of the corn oil produced in Fairmont sells to a biodiesel producer under an off-take agreement.
Last Thursday, BioFuel Energy announced their first quarter 2012 results. For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, the net loss was $11.1 million on revenues of $139.4 million, compared with a net loss of $9.0 million on revenues of $158.0 million for the quarter ended March 31, 2011. For the quarter ended March 31, 2012, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $9.4 million, or $.09 per share. For the three months ended March 31, 2011, the net loss attributable to common stockholders was $7.7 million, or $.11 per share.
Mr. Scott H. Pearce, BioFuel Energy's President and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We continue to face a challenging commodity margin environment, as the industry continues to over-produce in the face of lower demand for motor fuel. Over the past two years, we have made a number of improvements to our platform to mitigate losses in periods like this, the most recent example being the installation of corn oil extraction systems, which began generating revenues early in the first quarter of 2012. We also produced fewer gallons year over year as we pared back production to optimize the margin realized."
BioFuel Energy Corp. (BIOF), closed on Monday at $0.36, down 11.11%, on 366,649 volume with 350 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,185,994. The 52-week low/high is $0.15/$1.24.

International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO). Today, International Stem Cell Corp. closed trading at $0.4150, up 3.75%, on 40,100 volume with 13 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 184,519, and its 52-week low/high is $0.3412/1.20.
International Stem Cell Corp. (ISCO) specializes in the therapeutic applications of human parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs) and the development and commercialization of cell-based research and cosmetic products. The company was first to perfect the natural phenomenon of parthenogenesis, which utilizes unfertilized human eggs to create hpSCs. These stem cells, created in a particular form called HLA homozygous, can be immune-matched to millions of people regardless of sex or racial background, with minimal expectation of immune rejection after transplantation.
hpSCs are as pluripotent as embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and have significant therapeutic potential but their creation does not involve the destruction of a viable human embryo – thus sidestepping the controversy and ethical dilemmas associated with the use of human embryonic stem cells. Different from induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSs), hpSCs do not involve manipulation of gene expression back to a less differentiated stage – a practice that may become a safety or regulatory obstacle in clinical applications.
A relatively small number of hpSC lines can offer the potential of producing the first true stem cell bank, UniStemCell, which ISCO intends to create as a means of serving populations across the globe. The company's scientists are currently focused on using hpSC to treat severe diseases of the eye, nervous system, and liver, for which cell therapy has been clinically proven but is limited due to the unavailability of safe human cells.
In addition to its therapeutic focus, ISCO also provides two revenue streams. Firstly through its subsidiary Lifeline Cell Technology, specialized cells and growth media for biological research around the world, and secondly its subsidiary Lifeline Skin Care, the company manufactures and sells anti-aging skincare products utilizing an extract from the hpSC and by leveraging the latest discoveries in the fields of stem cell biology, nanotechnology, and skin cream formulation technology.

Cover-All Technologies, a Delaware corporation and leading developer of sophisticated software solutions for the property and casualty insurance industry, announced its business intelligence (BI) solution, NexGen Business Intelligence, has been included in a Novarica report profiling insurance BI solutions. Novarica is a research and advisory firm focused on insurance technology strategy. The report, “Business Intelligence Solutions for U.S. Insurers 2012 (Q1),” profiles 19 vendors that currently offer BI solutions. The report describes the growing importance of BI and key areas of use by property/casualty insurance companies.
According to Martina Conlon, principal for Novarica’s insurance team and author of the report, many insurers today are recognizing the value of leveraging their internal data to improve their business, and they are investing accordingly. BI supplies historical, current, and predictive views of business operations by utilizing data to analyze information, make decisions, and manage performance.
The profile of Cover-All Technologies particularly notes NexGen Business Intelligence’s “…over 150 measures that can be sliced and diced using over 90 dimensions” and the fact that six insurers in the United States currently rely on the solution.
Cover-All’s BI was created to offer a proven, scalable, modern, and transformative solution for organizations seeking to unlock and leverage the value of their information. Cover-All Technologies feels that being featured in the Novarica report is a beneficial step in sharing with the industry all the benefits of its comprehensive insurance-specific BI solution, including features like prebuilt key performance indicators and drill down capabilities.
Since 1981, Cover-All Technologies has been a leading developer of sophisticated software solutions for the property and casualty insurance industry.

Data Storage, a provider of cloud storage and cloud computing focused on data protection and business continuity solutions, today announced it has completed the first two phases of its three-phased expansion plan for its Waltham data center facility.
The company says the phase 1 and 2 completions more than triple the company’s existing footprint with the additional installation of IBM’s iSeries High Availability and Disaster Recovery server hardware and the new IBM iSeries Hosted Cloud solution.
In addition to the added High Availability and Disaster Recovery capacity upgrades, the expansion also greatly increases the company’s cloud-based offsite storage and data vaulting capabilities, which opens the door for opportunities within highly regulated industries such as finance and healthcare, where the need for storage on physical media is often inadequate, and exposes media to loss, theft, and degradation.
“Demand for our hosted solution offerings, especially in HA and DR services geared towards SMB customers, has grown significantly over the past year,” Matthew Grosso, executive vice president and CTO at Data Storage stated in the press release. “The completion of our phase 1 & 2 expansion in Waltham is just another step in our multi-year roadmap as we plan to meet greater demands for our High Availability and Disaster Recovery services. These expansions will enable us to roll out additional cloud services over the coming months.”
