Centaurus Diamond Technologies, Inc. (CTDT)
Real Pennies, Preferred Penny Stocks, Select Penny Stock, Penny Stock Heroes, OTCPicks, Orbit Stocks, and Stock Analyzer reported yesterday on Centaurus Diamond Technologies, Inc. (CTDT), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Yesterday, Sweetwater Resources, Inc. (SWTR) announced that they changed their name to Centaurus Diamond Technologies, Inc. The Company will now trade under the new symbol (OTC.BB: CTDT) (OTCQB: CTDT). They were granted permission to change their name to reflect the nature of their core business better. The Company remains focused upon the perfection of their process for the manufacture of cultured, industrial diamonds. Their objective is to be the first mass producer of cultured diamonds in sizes large enough for center stones in jewelry of all colors. This includes the most recognized colorless/white diamonds illusive for other growers to produce in quantity to date.
Mr. Alvin Snaper, President of Centaurus Diamond Technologies stated, "We are very pleased that FINRA has granted our name and symbol change to more accurately reflect the true nature of our business which is to manufacture diamonds that are chemically, atomically and structurally identical to a diamond created by nature."
Sweetwater Resources acquired 100 percent of Centaurus Diamond Technologies. Centaurus has been established to commercialize completely their proprietary, cost-efficient and high-volume diamond production method to provide industrial quality diamonds. The Company's patented technology enables the production of "cultured" diamonds that are chemically, atomically, and structurally identical to natural diamonds. This alternative is diamonds indistinguishable from their natural counterparts.
Centaurus' mission is to set the benchmark for "cultured" diamonds. They will compete in the worldwide diamond industry, offering diamonds to a larger market due to affordability that will enable the end-consumer to purchase a true "gem" diamond at a price significantly discounted from that of natural diamonds.
Last week, the Company reported a growing demand for industrial diamond. U.S. production of industrial diamond in 2011 was estimated to have been 98.2 million carats. The United States was one of the world's leading markets. Approximately 99 percent of the U.S. industrial diamond market now uses synthetic industrial diamond because its quality can be controlled. In addition, its properties can be customized to fit specific requirements. Synthetic diamonds are ideally suited to industrial needs. Their key advantage over natural diamonds is that manufacturers can control the properties of hardness, thermal conductivity and electron mobility.
Centaurus Diamond Technologies, Inc. (CTDT), closed on Tuesday at $0.29, up 45.00%, on 13,448,778 volume with 1,815 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 548,982. The 52-week low/high is $0.08/$1.90.

RainChief Energy, Inc. actively engages in identifying, financing, and developing oil & gas energy resource properties in North America. This includes the development of the Gulf Jensen Oil Prospect in New Mexico. The Company continues to review additional resource properties that combine positive elements of short-term exploration and development costs with high potential for long-term success and financial return. RainChief's shares trade on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company is based in Vancouver, British Columbia.
The Gulf Jensen Prospect is in the southeast New Mexico portion of the Permian Basin. The New Mexico portion of the Basin holds three of the 100 largest oil fields in the U.S. Following extensive engineering review of the open-hole logs from the #1 Jensen well, RainChief Energy plans to enter into the farm-in agreement to acquire interests in the 2,044 net acre property, which is in close proximity to the #1 Jensen well. Preliminary analysis and comparison of the Gulf Jensen Prospect with other similar geological structures within the Permian Basin suggests that if the Gulf Jensen Prospect is similarly oil-bearing, the acreage included in the farm-in could support as much as 3 million barrels in oil and natural gas equivalent.
In May of this year, RainChief Energy announced the execution of a farm-in agreement with Rich Investments and Leare Developments of Vancouver. The agreement gives RainChief the opportunity to earn up to an 80 percent working interest (WI) in the Weber City Prospect oil property.

Forward Industries, Inc. (FORD), closed on Tuesday at $1.62, up 1.89%, on 37,368 volume with 59 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 18,054. The 52-week low/high is $1.55/$3.24.

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 $0.29, up 7.41%, on 29,711 volume with 16 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 197,865, and its 52-week low/high is $0.21/$1.00.
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.

Duma Energy has rapidly emerged from a portfolio of domestic hydrocarbon assets which put it in line for a 2013 production target of 2,500 boepd (barrels of oil equivalent per day). This level of production also suggests that Duma Energy is ready to join the international energy game via a number of carefully selected project acquisitions in exceptional return markets.
Churning out some 38,000 boe in FY11, with another 45,000 boe in the first half of FY12, DUMA has aggressively applied an operational strategy rooted in a serious financial commitment by the CEO and other insiders which devolves into 75 percent of capital (since inception) invested by these parties, whose interests remain strongly aligned with the shareholders. This operational blueprint also focuses on direct emphasis in creating solid financial returns with delimited risk, and the deployment of industry standard, time-tested systems while avoiding risky resource plays that are heavily margin-dependent.
This same drive has placed the company in control of an impressive portfolio of producing domestic oil and gas properties, both on and offshore. With a geological and engineering team able to digest the complex logistical requirements essential to successfully producing onshore and offshore targets, DUMA has some $77M or more in proven resources under its hat (some $12M as booked reserves), and the talent and dedication to bring it in. The significance of such domestic energy producers in helping to create a larger U.S. strategic energy independence envelope should not be underestimated, and Duma Energy’s aggressive approach to developing domestic hydrocarbons along profit-driven, ROI-centric lines has really caught the attention of investors.
With assets in Texas leading the pack, DUMA has a solid foundation from which to explore international target development, as the Illinois and Louisiana projects dovetail with a broader approach to stabilize a low-risk, high-return footprint here in the U.S. that is on target for the current year-end goal of being a 1,000k boepd producer. The Company currently stands at 600 boepd, well up from initial operational figures in March 2010 of some 300 boepd. With 130 wells – 27 actively producing – and significant ongoing re-completions as well as new drilling, DUMA is poised to achieve the kind of revenue growth and cash flow projections mapped out by management.
Currently the company averages operating margins in the 50th percentile range thanks to efficient cost controls, and looks to have new production coming online to increase these margins moving forward. DUMA posted earnings of $73,000 for third quarter results (period ending Apr 30) on revenue of $1.8 million, both figures up significantly from the previous quarter.
With a nonstop near-term agenda of aggressive development, and the company’s eyes peeled for lucrative international acquisitive activity, Duma Energy is well-positioned to drive precisely the kind of shareholder returns that the company’s operating strategy was founded on. At DUMA, the primary focus isn’t just on barrels of oil produced, but on realized ROI for the company’s shareholders and efficient growth of the metrics which produce those returns.

Yesterday, CytRx announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has issued a notice of allowance for a patent application with claims covering a pharmaceutical composition of the drug tamibarotene in capsule form. CytRx is currently conducting a Phase 2b global clinical trial with tamibarotene.
CytRx is focused on research and development that specializes in oncology, and currently has three programs in their pipeline that are in clinical development for cancer indications: aldoxorubicin (formerly known as INNO-206), tamibarotene, and bafetinib. Furthermore, CytRX has initiated an international Phase 2b clinical trial as a treatment for soft tissue sarcomas, completed its Phase 1b/2 clinical trial primarily in the same indication, and recently initiated a Phase 2 trial for patients with advanced pancreatic ductual adenocarcinomas. CytRx plans to meet with the FDA in the second half of 2012 to discuss potential Phase 3 trials.
Tamibarotene has been designed to be more potent than the chemotherapeutic agent ATRA (all-trans retinoic acid), with the benefit of avoiding some of ATRA’s toxic side effects by selectively binding to specific molecular receptors. The drug is included in a Phase 2b global clinical trial, as a first-line treatment for non-small-cell lung cancer (NSCLC). It is also in a Phase 2 clinical trial as a treatment for acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL).
CytRx holds the North American and European rights to certain tamibarotene intellectual property for the treatment of NSCLC and APL, and retains an option to expand its licenses for the use of tamibarotene in other fields in oncology. The U.S. patent from this application on the tamibarotene capsule formulation will expire in 2028.
Steven A. Kriegsman, CytRx CEO, said, “We are highly optimistic about tamibarotene’s prospects for improving the treatment of certain cancers, and strengthening the intellectual property position for this oncology asset is clearly in our best interest. Last month we announced a major milestone in our late-stage clinical trial with tamibarotene in NSCLC. An approval to market tamibarotene for this indication alone could represent a blockbuster opportunity for CytRx.”
Specialty pharmaceutical company A.P. Pharma today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has allowed three new patents covering APF530, the company’s lead product candidate for the prevention of both acute- and delayed-onset chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting (CINV).
A.P. Pharma president and CEO John B. Whelan called the patents “instrumental” in augmenting the product’s overall patent life, which will extend through 2024.
“A.P. Pharma continues to make advancements related to APF530 beyond clinical and regulatory development, and the allowance of these patents provides added strength to the APF530 patent estate and will help support the product’s longevity,” Whelan stated in the press release.
The company offered the following details on patent coverage:
• U.S. Patent application number 13/279,949, entitled “Process for Preparing a Semi-Solid Delivery Vehicle Comprising Granisetron,” relates to methods for preparing extended release formulations of granisetron.
• U.S. Patent application number 13/279,938, entitled “Methods of Treating Emesis Utilizing Semi-Solid Pharmaceutical Compositions Comprising Granisetron,” relates to methods for the treatment of emesis using extended release formulations of granisetron.
• U.S. Patent application number 12/564,881, entitled “Semi-Solid Delivery Vehicle and Pharmaceutical Compositions for Delivery of Granisetron,” relates to compositions for extended delivery of granisetron.

Capstone Turbine, a top global cleantech manufacturer of low-emission microturbines, (and the first company to deliver a commercially viable microturbine to market) with over 6.5k units shipped worldwide, reported some 2MW worth of orders today from two sizeable domestic hydrocarbon producers, marking yet another set of customers in the oil and gas market to seize upon the benefits of the company’s robust, versatile microturbines for on-site prime power.
Once again, trusted CPST distributor Horizon Power Systems can be thanked for diligently working to secure new deals, with the first order (a C1000 Power Package) being a follow-on order from a rapidly developing Eagle Ford Shale operator down in Texas, and the other (a bundle of five C200’s) being destined for a 1MW installation up in Alberta. The Alberta system (a multi-well pad requiring multi-use generation that should see installation/commissioning in late August) in particular will showcase the extreme versatility of the company’s microturbines for being able to process a wide range of fuel types efficiently and effectively (low/high pressure natural gas being a huge draw for the hydrocarbon sector, with biogas/syngas, flare gas, diesel, propane, and kerosene all functioning very well).
Sam Henry, President of Horizon Power Systems, remarked on how CPST hardware was rapidly becoming the power-generation solution of choice in North America’s burgeoning hydrocarbon recovery sector and that the superb feature set engineered into the microturbines has really struck a chord with domestic oil and gas producers. Great news for this globally recognized cleantech leader and this latest order is further confirmation of the upward trend the UL-Certified ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001:2004 certified CPST has exhibited. A firm commitment to manufacturing reliable, industrial-grade equipment has made the LA-headquartered CPST well known, even outside the U.S. and other major markets like China, Mexico, Singapore, South America, and the United Kingdom where the company has sales/service centers.
Capstone’s turbines are known for more than fuel type versatility, though; they are known for being engineered to meet all the needs dreamed of in typical applications and were designed for modularity (can run solo or in series, grid-connected, or stand-alone) as well as extreme robustness (one moving part means low maintenance and long lifecycle, and the patented air bearing means no lubricating or coolant). The appeal to isolated resource recovery sites, (especially in hydrocarbons where natural gas can be utilized effectively for environmentally friendly on-site prime power), as well as for co-generation, backup power, and even hybrid electric vehicle applications, is obvious.
That Eagle Ford operator down in Texas picked up 12 microturbines earlier in the year to power pump jacks for their artificial lift and liked the product so much they came back for the big daddy C1000 to handle the new central gas processing facility power requirements (to be commissioned this summer).
President and CEO of CPST, Darren Jamison, called the orders a clear demonstration of the broad market appeal of the company’s low-emission, durable, and highly-efficient systems, adding that the oil and gas sector in particular was increasingly turning to Capstone as a provider of choice for round-the-clock reliability. Operators in the oil and gas sector really need the kind of well site optimization Capstone’s systems can provide, with production and millions of dollars on the line, often in remote locations. It is a perfect market for the company to see further expansion.
Jamison indicated that this order makes it roughly a dozen such orders pulled down in just the last 20 months from oil and gas operators, asserting that the company will be extremely dutiful in generating sector return growth moving forward, as more and more oil and gas customers seek out CPST’s innovative microturbines to meet their prime power needs.
