The QualityStocks
Daily Stock List


Surna, Inc. (SRNA)

Greenbackers, OTC Stock Review, DSR News, PHUB News, Actual Gains, PennyStockRumors.net, PricelessPennyStocks, Value Penny Stocks, Hot Stock Profits, Ascending Stocks, and Market Wire Stocks reported on Surna, Inc. (SRNA), and today we choose to report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Boulder, Colorado-based Surna, Inc. develops, acquires, produces, and sells equipment for the legal marijuana industry. The Company’s mission is to acquire intellectual property (IP) and scalable operating companies in the nascent, legal marijuana industry with an emphasis on disruptive technology, equipment, and related support services. Surna’s business model excludes the production or sale of marijuana.

Essentially, Surna is a technology company that engineers, manufactures, and distributes state-of-the art equipment and systems for controlled environment agriculture (CEA) presently specializing in commercial indoor cannabis cultivation. Through its wholly-owned subsidiary, Hydro Innovations, Surna offers a complete line of commercial and small business indoor agriculture equipment. The Company’s shares trade on the OTC Markets Group’s OTCQB.

Surna develops pioneering technologies and products, which monitor, control, or address the energy and resource intensive nature of indoor cannabis cultivation. Currently, the Company’s revenue stream is based on its primary product offerings – supplying industrial technology and products to commercial indoor cannabis grow facilities.

Surna’s goal is to dominate the infrastructure, growing, and support side of the worldwide cannabis industry. It has filed a provisional patent application covering enhancements to its proprietary Climate Control Systems and Methods used in indoor gardens. The patent covers an industrial process that provides electricity, heating, and cooling while using the resulting carbon-dioxide (CO2) generated as a nutrient for the plants.

The Company’s plan is to integrate this and other proprietary technology into a new, commercial-grade power-generating and environmental control system product. The system is undergoing design to provide a near zero waste energy alternative for the cannabis industry.

Surna announced in June that it reached an Agreement with Kind Agrisoft, LLC, an affiliate of Kind Financial (collectively Kind) in which Kind will acquire the Assets of  Agrisoft Development Group. Surna announced in January 2015 that it entered into an agreement to acquire a controlling interest in Agrisoft. However, the continued growth of its present business combined with the strategic assets that Kind could bring to Agrisoft led all parties to deduce that this transaction would better achieve each company's goals. Surna’s expectation is that this Agreement will provide flexibility for it to work with numerous point-of-sale vendors.

Surna has the beta version of its ground-breaking Surna Reflector. It has released 50 of its energy saving light Reflectors for beta testing among different high-end commercial cannabis cultivation facilities and industry consultants between multiple states, which have state-approved cannabis cultivation (including Colorado and Washington).

For the six months ended June 30, 2015, Surna reported gross revenues of $2,548,845 versus $346,559 for the same period in 2014. This represents an increase of 635 percent. Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2015 were $1,677,950, up from $870,895 in the prior quarter, and more than quadruple the $346,559 in revenue during the same period in 2014. 

Surna, Inc. (SRNA), closed Monday's trading session at $0.225, up 22.95%, on 3,464,626 volume with 642 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 740,919 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0425/$2.15.

PositiveID Corp. (PSID)

SmallCapVoice, Greenbackers, and OTPicks reported this month on PositiveID Corp. (PSID), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

PositiveID Corp. is a developer of biological detection and diagnostics solutions. The Delray Beach, Florida-based Company is a developer of biological detection systems for the Unites States’ homeland defense industry and rapid biological testing. Its’ emphasis is on the development of microfluidic systems for the automated preparation of and performance of biological assays to detect biological threats at high-value locations and analyze samples in a medical environment. The Company acquired MicroFluidic Systems (MFS) in May 2011.  PositiveID lists on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB.

MicroFluidic Systems (MFS) specializes in the development and production of automated instruments for detecting and processing biological samples. Its core technology is used for airborne pathogen detection, rapid clinical diagnostics, and sample preparation applications.

Concerning Molecular Diagnostics, PositiveID’s products include M-BAND and Firefly. The Microfluidics-based Bioagent Networked Detector (M-BAND) developed by MicroFluidic Systems (MFS) is a bioaerosol monitor with fully integrated systems with sample collection, processing, as well as detection modules.

PositiveID is developing the Firefly Dx detection system. Firefly Dx is its real-time, hand held, polymerase chain reaction (PCR) pathogen detection system. This system is a two-part device. It consists of a portable handheld instrument with wireless Bluetooth communication and disposable single-use cartridges containing all vital analytical elements.

PositiveID is developing Firefly Dx based on intellectual property (IP) and knowledge gained during years of development and $30 million of contract funding from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security for its M-BAND system. This system utilizes PCR for the identification of airborne bio-threats.

PositiveID successfully detected influenza on its Firefly Dx breadboard prototype PCR (polymerase chain reaction) pathogen detection system. The entire testing process was performed on the Firefly Dx breadboard, which is significantly faster than standard laboratory equipment and protocols, with results achieved in minutes instead of hours or days. Influenza is an RNA virus and necessitates a reverse transcription step to create cDNA before PCR being performed.

Today, PositiveID announced it entered into definitive agreements with an institutional investor for a total purchase price of $2,400,000. The Company will use the proceeds to continue the development and testing of its Firefly Dx PCR (polymerase chain reaction) prototype pathogen detection system with the objective of producing field-testable units, and for general working capital.

PositiveID Corp. (PSID), closed Monday's trading session at $0.029, up 4.32%, on 5,196,992 volume with 235 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 7,245,400 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.014/$0.0845.

PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB)

SmallCap Network, OTCJournal, Stock Shock and Awe, Fast Money Alerts, The Stock Psycho, Darth Trader, Penny Stock General, Penny Stock Beats, PennyStockLaboratory, PennyStockInformer, WINNINGOTC, Wall Street Beauties, SMS Penny Picks, Jet-Life Penny Stocks, SmallCap Network, and Stock Market Media Group reported on PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB), and we are highlighting the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. is a clinical stage biotechnology company. It focuses on developing targeted treatments for cancer and diabetes using its signature live cell encapsulation technology, Cell-in-a-Box®. This inventive and patented technology is being used as a platform upon which treatments for several types of cancer, including advanced, inoperable pancreatic cancer, and diabetes are being built. PharmaCyte Biotech has its corporate headquarters in Silver Spring, Maryland.

The Company is also working towards improving the quality of life of patients with advanced pancreatic cancer and on developing treatments for other types of solid cancerous tumors. PharmaCyte Biotech is ready to head into Phase 2b clinical trials in advanced inoperable pancreatic cancer later in 2015 in Australia.

Its treatment for pancreatic cancer involves low doses of the recognized anticancer prodrug ifosfamide, together with encapsulated live cells that convert ifosfamide into its active or "cancer-killing" form. These capsules are placed as close to the cancerous tumor as possible. This is to enable the delivery of the highest levels of the cancer-killing drug at the source of the cancer.

Additionally, PharmaCyte Biotech is developing treatments for cancer founded upon chemical constituents of the Cannabis plant, called cannabinoids. It is examining ways to exploit the benefits of Cell-in-a-Box® technology in optimizing the anticancer effectiveness of cannabinoids, while minimizing or outright eliminating the debilitating side effects typically associated with cancer treatments.

The live-cell encapsulation technology employed by the Company is a way to enclose living cells in protective “cocoons” around the size of the head of a pin. PharmaCyte encapsulates living cells, not drugs.  Each capsule can enclose around 10,000 cells. This number can vary depending upon the size of the cells encapsulated.

PharmaCyte Biotech made headlines in the diabetes industry after a study was published that stated its Melligen cell line could produce insulin in diabetic mice. The Company has the exclusive global rights to use the Melligen cells to treat diabetes.

PharmaCyte Biotech announced in June that it can advance its Cannabis research now that its research partner, The University of Northern Colorado (UNC), successfully obtained a Schedule 1 license from the U.S. Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA). This license will permit PharmaCyte Biotech to continue development of tumor-targeted treatments for serious and deadly cancers through using cannabinoid prodrugs in combination with its signature live-cell encapsulation technology, Cell-in-a-Box®.

Recently, PharmaCyte Biotech announced that its follow-up study on ascites started in July. The study is being conducted by Translational Drug Development (TD2) to determine the effectiveness of PharmaCyte Biotech’s pancreatic cancer treatment on the rate of accumulation of malignant ascites fluid in patients with pancreatic cancer and other abdominal tumors.

PharmaCyte Biotech, Inc. (PMCB), closed Monday's trading session at $0.104, up 4.10%, on 1,356,499 volume with 223 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 1,993,259 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.095/$0.27.
