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 $0.32, up 6.67%, on 117,368 volume with 27 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 7,831, 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 was founded in 2005 and began trading on the OTCBB in 2009 via registration. In 2006, the company began producing from its first properties in Texas and soon after added production in Louisiana. In 2009, its new CEO Jeremy G. Driver came on board. Within one year, Mr. Driver had identified and negotiated an acquisition that would fundamentally reshape the company. This acquisition was made possible by the large direct cash investment by Mr. Driver and his family, as well as other investors.
The company uses only industry standard and time-tested technologies, and avoids unproven "resource plays" and other opportunities that are heavily dependent upon high commodity prices. Not bound by any geographical location or operational strategy, Duma's management team is focused on developing its existing portfolio while pursuing additional opportunities that provide rapid growth, leveraging growing revenue, cash flow, and reserves to accelerate its growth strategy.

Teletouch Communications has an impressive pedigree in wireless and cellular services stretching back almost five decades, as well as some of the hottest consumer electronics retail/wholesale action out there today. As one of the top ASP (authorized service provider) and billing agents for massive industry fixture AT&T, Teletouch is a well-respected, well-positioned provider of diverse connectivity solutions and has some impressive traction in areas like GPS-telemetry and two-way radio systems, even running their own two-way radio network and LTR systems down in Texas.
Speaking of two-way radio, Teletouch has developed a compelling reputation among law enforcement, fire/emergency response, and traffic/safety professionals for consistently delivering tailored solutions to both small and large departments. A key point of availability for the best equipment from top names like Federal Signal, Havis-Shields, Pro-Gard, Santa Cruz Gun Locks, and Whelen Engineering to name but a few, the company creates brilliantly designed state-of-the-art solutions for any budget. The company holds several key cooperative purchasing network contracts with the big players like GSA, BuyBoard, and TXMAS, putting TLLE right in the pipeline for providing to city, state, and federal organizations. As an authorized Motorola Dealer in two-way communications, again with top names like Digital Antenna, ICOM, Kenwood, and Vertex rounding out the availability playlist, as well as a small army of highly-skilled technicians to assist the clients, it’s no wonder Teletouch has been able to construct such firm foundations in the two-way space.
The Teletouch and Hawk Electronics brands are quite well known in the Dallas-Fort Worth area through the company’s chain of 15 branded retail locations and authorized agents stores. Married to a dynamic sales team with an engaging ecommerce presence via Hawk’s portals HawkElectronics,HawkWireless, and HawkExpress, the company is able to maintain a very noticeable channel force via these entities, doing a great job of keeping customers in the loop with call center operations and serious responsiveness to customer demand for flexible solutions.
Instances which showcase the company’s market vector, like the recently announced multi-year national supply and distribution agreement with TCT Mobile (a subsidiary of global consumer electronics manufacturing giant TCL Communications) to sell/distribute their ALCATEL ONE TOUCH® branded mobile phones, are numerous. This major deal with rapidly rising star of the handset manufacturing industry, TCT Mobile, places Teletouch in the pole position for prime sales/distribution to US Tier-1 (AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint) wireless carrier indirect distribution channels as well as all the other (Tier 2-3) domestic carriers.
The national distribution presence created through PCI Wholesale (operated by TLLE subsidiary Progressive Concepts, Inc.), which handles everything from Tier 1 cellular carrier agents down to small electronics retailers, is a broad B2B channel for the company, with point of sale and support available through PCIWholesale and PCIDropship.
Wholesale distribution looks to be a strong future for TLLE and the company is targeting fiscal year 2015 for the segment to become the primary earnings engine, having successfully opened up multiple agreements directly with cellular accessory, mobile electronics, and handset manufacturers like the TCT Mobile deal. With much broader mobile audio and wireless offerings under its belt, TLLE has the reputation and the architecture to execute successfully on overall strategic growth targets, with the wholesale distribution module looking the most robust.

Soltoro, the bulk-tonnage focused precious mineral developer that has put together an impressive land package in Mexico’s Jalisco State (mostly through boots-on-the-ground staking) consisting of some 136k acres in seven, district-scale positions (the majority of which are associated with their 100%-owned El Rayo silver project), was pleased to announce an additional payment today from Gold Reserve Inc. of $100k, as part of the option agreement whereby Gold Reserve may acquire an undivided 51% interest in the some 28.6k-acre La Tortuga copper/gold property in Jalisco.
Under terms of the agreement, Gold Reserve is required to invest $3M in the property over 3 years and make a cumulative $650k in option payments to Soltoro, which would ultimately result in a formal JV, with Gold Reserve able to exercise the option for another 9% (via a $2M payment).
La Tortuga is a highly prospective site with diverse copper and gold mineralization stretching out over a 30.4 sq mile area, upon which the company has conducted extensive induced polarization work (some 94 line-miles between 2006-2008), in addition to seven diamond drill holes to validate identified chargeability anomalies in the historically worked areas along the Papagayo ridge.
The primary area of interest was host back during the turn of the previous century to the Las Garrochas (gold/silver) and Macuchi (mostly copper) mine operations but didn’t seen any substantial investigative work again until the 90′s when surface trenching, geochemical/geophysical surveying, and a reverse circulation program were engaged. The obviously present, apparently abundant gold/copper mineralization evinced through extant exploration/analysis across the property offers a solid target for development.
Extensive mapping/sampling work done in 2009 in the Macuchi area validated the presence of two distinct hematite breccia zones with considerable secondary copper targets in the fractures, indicating high probability of an iron-oxide-copper-gold (IOCG) system, like that of a diatreme complex (basically a breccia filled volcanic pipe). Some 3,300 feet of diamond drilling fleshed out the breccias and largely confirms the IOCG portrait, with some 50 line-miles of subsequent ground magnetic analysis helping to color in the relational connections between magnetic rocks and mineralized structures (which yield a clearer mineralization model for the potential IOCG system). Gold Reserve is clearly interested in carving off a sizeable chunk of the potential here and investors will be looking for further updates as the dealings progress.
The company’s recent diamond drilling program at their main El Rayo site has been very promising as well and the company recently provided (Jan 31. 2012) an updated NI 43-101 resource estimate on the property, with the majority of work targeting the prominent Las Bolas deposit (hematite-quartz vein breccia). A number of areas of anomalous concentrations of silver, gold, copper, lead, and zinc on the El Rayo property gives Soltoro an excellent primary position to support the sort of JV/option growth announced today and the company has a number of other exciting option opportunities and generative prospects to work with as well.
