QuantumSphere, Inc. (QSIM)

Stock News Now reported recently on QuantumSphere, Inc. (QSIM), and today we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

QuantumSphere, Inc. is a foremost producer of advanced catalyst technologies. The design of these is to improve production efficiencies in large-scale industrial chemical processes. The Company’s products take advantage of a patented process to produce an innovative high surface area catalyst accelerator technology that improves existing catalyst performance. The Company’s technology is applicable to hundreds of chemical plants around the world, which represent billions of dollars in yearly output. QuantumSphere has its corporate headquarters in Santa Ana, California.

Its catalyst accelerator technology is integrated into existing chemical plants with no modifications. Its lead chemical focus is ammonia, which is vital to the global food supply. Over 80 percent of ammonia produced is used in agricultural fertilizers for worldwide food production.

The Company’s advanced catalysts have premier properties. These include their spherical shape, oxide layer, crystalline structure, and very large surface area. This transforms into higher reaction activity and greater efficiency in the generation, storage, as well as use of energy. Additionally, QuantumSphere has further patent applications pending associated to composition of nano alloys, process chemistries, and commercial devices (high rate electrodes for metal-air batteries and fuel cells) enabled by the use of its advanced catalyst materials and integrated catalytic solutions.

Concerning its Intellectual Property (IP), QuantumSphere was awarded the patent for its gas phase condensation (GPC) process on October 16, 2007. The patent includes dozens of comprehensive claims on the manufacturing system that produces advanced materials, high surface area catalysts at the nano scale.  QuantumSphere’s patented process is safe, environmentally friendly, and fully automated. It requires low supervision and little down time for reactor maintenance.

QuantumSphere announced this past March that the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) granted a key patent to the Company related to its advanced FeNIX™ nanocatalyst accelerator technology.  U.S. Patent Number 9,272,920 comprises claims relating to the application of iron nanocatalysts, applied as a coating onto existing commercial ammonia catalysts, for increased catalytic activity and production efficiency in ammonia synthesis.

QuantumSphere has started the sales phase of its lead nanocatalyst product for the ammonia industry. In coordination with its industry-leading Swiss-headquartered commercialization partner, Casale, S.A., QuantumSphere has targeted the second half of this year to secure an initial sale and plant integration that it anticipates will produce revenue for the Company in early 2017. Presently, QuantumSphere is in sales discussions with numerous plant operators.

QuantumSphere, Inc. (QSIM), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.23, even for the day. The average volume for the last 60 days is 11,919 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.10/$2.50.

Its vaporizers extract active ingredients from source material by way of an inventive and proprietary process. This delivers high quality natural vapor for a first-rate user experience.

The process of vaporization extracts all of the therapeutically beneficial compounds from choice herbs and flowers into a vapor cloud.

Vapir invents, develops, and produces digital vaporizers in desktop and portable varieties. All of its vaporizers provide exact temperature control, LCD displays, elegant design, and premier materials for a topnotch vapor experience. Its vaporizer models include PRIMA (the digital vaporizer supports herbs and extracts), VAPIRISE 2.0 (designed for loose-leaf herbs and essential oils); NO2.V2 (designed for loose-leaf herbs and direct inhalation), and Oxygen Mini (designed for loose-leaf herbs direct inhalation).

Vapir Enterprises sells its vaporizers and related products to retail channels through its direct sales force. In addition, it sells its offerings via third party wholesalers, value-added resellers, small-box discount and big-box retailers, gas stations, drug stores, convenience stores, tobacco shops, and kiosk locations in shopping malls, and also through its online stores.

Vapir has a distribution partnership with Phillips & King (a wholly-owned subsidiary of Kretek International). Phillips & King International is the leading distributor of specialty tobacco, vapor, and alternative smoking products in the U.S. Moreover, recently, Vapir announced new product integration and a sales partnership with The Travel Joint. TheTravelJoint.com is a destination for information on 420 travel locations and accommodations, tours and events, dispensaries, activities and nightlife, product reviews, cannabis cooking, and overall industry news.

Amerityre Corp. (AMTY)

Marketbeat.com, TopPennyStockMovers, Real Pennies, CoolPennyStocks, and Stock Rich reported on Amerityre Corp. (AMTY), and today we are highlighting the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Amerityre Corp. engages in the research and development (R&D), manufacture, and sale of polyurethane tires. The Company initially developed polyurethane foam tires based on proprietary chemical formulations. Amerityre has invented new polyurethane foam and elastomer materials that it believes are superior to rubber in several tire applications. OTCQB listed, Amerityre is headquartered in Boulder City, Nevada.

The Company is focusing on three segments of the tire market. These are closed-cell polyurethane foam tires, polyurethane elastomer forklift tires, and agricultural tires. Concerning agricultural tires, it has developed two products for this market, one used in irrigation and one used in planting. Both products have successfully field tested.

Regarding closed-cell polyurethane foam tires, Amerityre currently manufactures several lines of closed-cell polyurethane foam tires for bicycles, hand trucks, lawn and garden, wheelbarrow, and medical mobility products. Pertaining to polyurethane elastomer forklift tires, it has developed solid polyurethane forklift tires made of Elastothane™. It produces and sells greater than 20 sizes for Class 1, 4 and 5 forklifts.

The Company’s advanced polyurethane materials are environmentally friendly and can be recycled. The sale of polyurethane foam tires to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), distributors and dealers accounts for most of Amerityre’s present revenue.  

Amerityre has developed a high density, closed cell foam material - utilizing proprietary polyurethane chemical formulations, which it believes is superior in low speed foam tire applications. Its materials are UV and ozone resistant and long-lasting. Amerityre’s foam tires can never go flat; as a result, Amerityre calls them Flatfree™.

The Company’s tires consist of high density foam and they exhibit low rolling resistance. The polyurethane foam tires do not absorb water and suffer performance degradation in wet environments. The foundation of Amerityre’s polyurethane material technology is on proprietary formulations. One is closed-cell polyurethane foam. This is a lightweight material with high load-bearing capabilities for low duty cycle applications.

The other is Polyurethane Elastomer Technology - Kryon™ and Elastothane™. Amerityre has created a number of polyurethane elastomer chemical formulations having superior temperature, abrasion and elastic properties. These materials are used in forklift tires and agricultural tire applications.

This past May, Amerityre reported quarterly earnings of roughly $35,000, before preferred share dividends, for the fiscal Q3 of 2016. The Company’s Q3 2016 sales of roughly $.94 million were down from approximately $1.19 million a year prior. Net income of approximately $35,000 for the quarter was up from a quarterly net loss of roughly $49,000 the year prior.

Mr. Michael F. Sullivan, Amerityre CEO, said in May, "Our third quarter results, achieved despite a very challenging economic environment, reflect the success of our organization in executing our business plan. We continue to push forward with the development and sale of higher margin products, while remaining vigilant in controlling our costs. Sales revenues were less than planned, but our efforts to restructure the company to a leaner and more focused organization allowed us to earn a profit during the quarter."

Amerityre Corp. (AMTY), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.024, down 39.85%, on 7,700 volume with 4 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 14,260 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0221/$0.11.

Laguna Blends Inc. (LAGBF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Laguna Blends Inc. (LAGBF). Today, Laguna Blends Inc. closed trading at $0.189, up 0.37%, on 1,300 volume with 2 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 19,336, and its 52-week low/high is $0.069/$0.267.

Laguna Blends Inc. (LAGBF) is a network marketing company focused on the generation of sales through independent affiliates. Leveraging innovative tools and technologies, the company's affiliates are able to build international businesses from their own homes while effectively capitalizing on the performance of some of the world's most rapidly expanding, in-demand markets. To date, Laguna's primary focus has been on the hyper growing hemp food and beverage marketplace. As part of these efforts, the company introduced Caffe, a hemp-infused instant coffee product, and is preparing to launch Pro369, a water soluble hemp protein powder.

As a network marketing company, Laguna is strategically positioned to grow very quickly following its entry into the rapidly expanding hemp market space. In early March 2016, the company gave prospective shareholders a preview of this potential when it launched sales of its protein coffee beverage through 135 independent affiliates throughout the United States and Canada. In less than a week, Laguna's affiliate base grew by more than 100 percent to include 278 independent marketers, demonstrating the high levels of demand for functional beverage products across North America, as well as the considerable interest in the viable business opportunity Laguna presents to its affiliates.

Through the commercialization of Caffe and Pro369, Laguna is establishing a foothold in two high-demand global markets. According to reports from the Coffee Association of Canada (CAC), coffee is consumed by a larger proportion of adults than any other beverage, excluding water. In recent years, the emergence of energy drinks has slowed the coffee industry's performance, but the single cup serving market, of which Caffe is a part, has maintained steady growth, rising above 32 percent market share as of January 2014, according to Mintel Research. With a product in this space - as well as the global hemp industry, which was valued at nearly $500 million in 2012 by the Hemp Industries Association - Laguna's initial offerings position it strongly for sustainable growth.

With growth through its marketing network already underway, Laguna has turned its attention toward further expansion of its product line. In March 2016, the company signed a letter of intent with Robert Lamberton Consulting regarding the development of a "Limitless functional beverage brain health and memory coffee" product. Under the terms of this LOI, all hard costs associated with the development of the product will be billed to Robert Lamberton Consulting. The two parties are expected to enter into a formal research and development agreement outlining the details of this arrangement in the second quarter of 2016.

Laguna is the first network marketing Company to use exciting virtual 3D technology to enable affiliates to train, recruit and drive sales by utilizing a simple interactive platform. Laguna believes this technology is a game changer in the Direct Selling / Network Marketing Industry. Disclaimer

Giggles N' Hugs, Inc. (GIGL)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Giggles N' Hugs, Inc. (GIGL). Today, Giggles N' Hugs, Inc. closed trading at $0.015, even for the day. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 87,009, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0127/$0.22.

Los Angeles-based Giggles N' Hugs, Inc. (GIGL) is a first-of-its-kind, award-winning family restaurant and play space that combines organic gourmet food with the play elements for children in a 2500-square-foot play space in the middle of the restaurant. The concept is similar to Chuck E. Cheese, but offers a unique healthier, high-end version for health conscious parents and families. Parents eat and relax while the kids have an incredible time playing in the custom-made play area with giant climbers, dragons, castles, pirate ships slides and swings and a multitude of other toys.

In addition to nightly shows and concerts, every 30 minutes Giggles N' Hugs provides an activity such as face painting, disco dance parties, karaoke, games, arts and crafts, and much more. Giggles N' Hugs has been voted the No. 1 family restaurant, No. 1 birthday party place, and the No. 1 indoor play space in all of Los Angeles, and has attracted a star-studded list of customers including Sandra Bullock, Heidi Klum, Jessica Alba, Halle Berry, Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck, Denis Quaid, Mark Whalberg, Adam Sandler, Dustin Hoffman and many more.

Revenue is derived from several sources, including food and beverage sales, beer and wine, birthday parties (40%), admission and membership fees to play, along with retail sales. These revenue-generating locations are also highly sought-after tenants. The company currently has three locations in the top premier malls around Los Angeles; four of the largest mall owners in the country are giving Giggles N' Hugs up to 75% discounts on rent and providing upward of $700,000 of upfront cash for each location to get Giggles N' Hugs into their malls around the country.

Growth and recognition of this caliber are driven by a very powerful management team. Giggles N' Hugs President John Kaufman was the COO at California Pizza Kitchen when the founders had just two locations. Joined by Giggles N' Hugs' CFO Phillip Gay, who at the time was CFO of California Kitchen, Kaufman grew the company from two to more than 100 locations – at which time it was bought by Pepsi Co. Kaufman was recruited as president of Koo Koo Roo Chicken, one of the fastest growing fast-casual concepts on the west coast, while Gay joined Wolfgang Puck Restaurants group as CFO, eventually becoming the CEO.

Giggles N' Hugs was founded as a truly "kid friendly" establishment catered specifically to the size, interests, and nutrition needs of children. Since opening its first Giggles N' Hugs in 2009, the company has received a steady stream of interest from more than 300 interested parties looking to expand the concept – via franchise or master licenses – in the U.S. as well globally in countries such as Germany, England, Dubai, Russia, Colombia, Australia , Singapore, Turkey, among the many more.
