Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. (CYPW)
TheMicrocapNews reported earlier on Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. (CYPW), and we report on the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. is a research & development (R&D) company that lists on the OTCQB. It focuses on helping solve the dependence on fossil fuels, and the resulting unsustainable consequences to the environment. The Company is the developer of the award-winning Cyclone Engine, which is an all-fuel, clean-tech engine. The Cyclone Engine has the power and versatility to run everything from waste energy electric generators and solar thermal systems to cars, trucks, and locomotives.
The patented Cyclone Engine was invented by Cyclone Power Technologies’ Founder and Chairman, Mr. Harry Schoell. The Cyclone Engine is a Rankine Cycle heat regenerative external combustion, also known as a “Schoell Cycle” engine. It creates mechanical energy through heating and cooling water in a closed-loop, piston-based engine system. The Cyclone Engine is an eco-friendly external combustion engine. The design of it is to attain high thermal efficiencies by way of a compact heat-regenerative process, and to run on almost any fuel (including bio-diesels, syngas or solar) while emitting less greenhouse gases and pollutants into the air.
The Cyclone Engine was recognized by Popular Science Magazine as the Invention of the Year for 2008. It was presented with two Society of Automotive Engineers' AEI Tech Awards. Furthermore, Cyclone Power Technologies was named Environmental Business of the Year by the Broward County (Florida) Environmental Protection Department.
Cyclone Power Technologies’ Waste Heat Engine (WHE) recaptures heat from external sources to create steam that powers the engine. The design of the WHE models are to run a grid-tied or primary electric power generator while producing zero emissions. All WHE operations are run through the Company’s subsidiary Cyclone-WHE LLC. This subsidiary operates under the trade name “WHE Generation”. The WHE converts heat from exhaust streams into mechanical power, which can be used to run electric generators for distributed generation. This past July, the Company announced that the European Patent Office issued a notice to grant Cyclone a patent on its Waste Heat Engine (the WHE).
Recently, Cyclone Power Technologies’ Board approved the strategic capitalization of its waste heat subsidiary, WHE Generation Corp. (formerly Cyclone-WHE LLC). These transactions are expected to result in Cyclone retaining up to 24 percent ownership in its subsidiary. This will considerably reduce its debt and liabilities, and establish future revenue streams. The action taken by the Board of Directors is consistent with Cyclone’s long range vision. It represents significant growth of its business model of advancing the Cyclone engines to market via licensing for specific uses and manufacturing.
Last month, Cyclone Power Technologies announced that it signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with Steam Logic, Inc. to integrate Cyclone’s heat exchanger, high pressure and low pressure pumps, which were originally developed for the Cyclone engines into its power turbine systems. This licensee will give Cyclone's manufacturing partner, Hypex, Inc. its first parts customer and purchase orders.
Cyclone Power Technologies, Inc. (CYPW), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.0012, even for the day, on 4,070,007 volume with 13 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 10,791,549 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.0012/$0.07.

The Digital Development Group Corp. (DIDG)

The Digital Development Group Corp. (DIDG) operates in the entertainment industry. This past March, the Company changed its operating name to "The Movie & Music Network." The Movie & Music Network is an online content provider, formerly known as DigiDev TV. The simultaneous launch of four new channels brings the total to 16 channels offered by The Movie & Music Network. Company plans are for adding a minimum of 10 channels per quarter. The Movie & Music Network is based in Hollywood, California and the Company lists on the OTC Market’s OTCQB.
The Movie & Music Network's parent company, The Digital Development Group Corp. began its first foray into the streaming video market in 2012 with four channels: "Something Weird,” "Synapse Films,” "Sci-Fi Station" as well as "The Silent Film Channel.” It added eight more channels, including “Cult Epics,” “Salvation Films” and “Media Blasters” during 2013.
In 2014, The Digital Development Group transformed into "The Movie & Music Network," merging all the existing DigiDev TV content plus an increasing variety of additional channels. This includes but is not limited to, feature films, documentaries, television shows, music videos, music performances and related content.
The Movie & Music Network is targeting the fast expanding world of “OTT” television (Over-The-Top Content (OTT)). OTT is the online delivery of video and audio to consumer devices without the Internet Service Provider (ISP) being involved in the control or distribution of the content itself. The Company is creating a unique and engaging experience in the delivery of movie, games, applications, and niche content to millions of connected devices and users around the world.
It provides a seamless, scalable, and integrated back-end technological solution. This gives content owners distribution capability across numerous platforms employing existing Internet Protocol (IP) services, providing increased monetization opportunities and greater control over distribution. The Company licenses content from owners and converts it into multiple formats. In this way, the same content can be consumed through devices as varied as a home theater or a smartphone.

Bravo Enterprises Ltd. (OGNG)
PennyStocks24, Whisper from Wall Street, Otcstockexchange, Pumps and Dumps, AwesomeStocks, Breaking Bulls, and SMS Penny Picks reported recently on Bravo Enterprises Ltd. (OGNG), and today we report on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
OTCQB-listed Bravo Enterprises Ltd. is a manufacturer and distributor of atmospheric water harvesting machines for the production of clean, safe drinking water for human consumption. It focuses on acquiring innovative clean tech technologies and adding value to them through developing, manufacturing, and marketing and distribution efficiencies. The Company formerly went by the name Organa Gardens International, Inc. It changed its name to Bravo Enterprises Ltd. in June of 2012.
Bravo Enterprises purchased the global rights in late 2012 for the manufacturing, marketing, and distribution of atmospheric water harvesters (AWH) from Water for the World Manufacturing, Inc. Earlier in 2014, Bravo re-organized to focus on its Splash Water For Life Division to engage in developing and distributing this next generation water technology on a worldwide basis.
Splash Water For Life is a developer, manufacturer and distributor of AWH technology. This technology provides a cost-effective solution to the worldwide drinking water shortage through extracting water from air and turning it into clean, healthy drinking water. The technology uses the air’s humidity, turning it into water through using refrigeration technology that condenses water vapor. The Splash Water for Life brand is a green, sustainable water generated from the 300 trillion tons of water in the air at all times from rivers, lakes, and oceans.
Bravo Enterprises reported earlier this year that Splash Water For Life started the process of building a prototype of a newly designed atmospheric water generator (AWG) machine in Canada. The new AWG will combine all the finer points in each of the home and office machines currently manufactured and marketed by Splash Water, with a few additions. The new prototype should have the capacity to produce 15 to 25 percent more water based on the same relative humidity as earlier noted for atmospheric water generating machines. Moreover, they are more bacterial resistant.
Recently, Bravo Enterprises reported that in the effort to contain the spread of Ebola in Liberia's capital Monrovia, tens of thousands of people have been barricaded. The lack of food and water available to the people is equally as troubling. Bravo's selection of commercial and industrial machines can be a temporary and permanent alternative water supply for Liberia and countries like it.
Bravo Enterprises Ltd. (OGNG), closed Thursday's trading session at $0.0124, down 3.88%, on 37,848 volume with 7 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 494,798 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.01/$0.29.
Oriens Travel and Hotel Management Corp. (OTHM)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Oriens Travel and Hotel Management Corp. (OTHM). Today, Oriens Travel and Hotel Management Corp. closed trading at $0.0002, on 2,550,200 volume with 6 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 28,412,368, and its 52-week low/high is $0.0001/$0.0024.
Oriens Travel and Hotel Management Corp. announced today, that as a result of the Company accepting a "Plan of Merger" during a special meeting of the Board of Directors, on Wednesday, September 10th, 2014; Oriens is now set to complete a merger with the Costa Rican entity, E-Network de Costa Rica M & A Sociedad Anomima ("E-Net"). "This is the beginning of something real and tangible," commented a senior Board Member. "The merger of E-Network delivers an assurance to shareholders that Oriens is now set on a course that will offer the best solution to rapid growth in Costa Rica, and to the Company overall."
Oriens Travel and Hotel Management Corp. (OTHM) is a provider of proprietary technology, marketing solutions, infrastructure and branding services to hotel operators.
The company's innovative platform functions as a powerful vehicle to help hotel operators achieve greater success in three specific areas: (i) expanded international exposure and recognition, (ii) powerful core structure, and (iii) high occupancy rates that drive increases in bottom-line profits. Oriens continuously refines its suite of proprietary solutions to deliver measurable and proven results to hotel properties. This success has been reflected in those properties operating under the Hotel PURE brand as well as with independent boutique hotel properties utilizing the company's Friendly Reservation Online (FROL) booking engine technology and internet marketing services.
Operating a successful bi-lateral business model, Oriens has four objectives:
1. To franchise the Hotel PURE brand to selected hotel properties worldwide similar to the business model currently employed by Big Brand operators such as Holiday Inn, Marriott, Sheraton and others;
2. Provide highly efficient and economical back-end booking engine technology services to independently branded boutique hotels that require a robust online presence;
3. Launch a stand-alone online hotel booking search engine primarily focused on Central America; and,
4. Expand the portfolio of Oriens-owned boutique hotels operating under the Hotel PURE brand.
The company initially began growing its operations primarily in the United States. However most recently, major opportunities in Central America began presenting themselves, giving Oriens the ability to retool its business model. Now the company is positioned to acquire, own and operate its own properties – which would be marketed under the new brand with occupancies handled by the re-launched online booking engine system.
Ultimately, Oriens intends to become a top-tier hotel brand operator and Internet booking and marketing service provider, qualifying as a preferred supplier to lending institutions. The company also intends to establish an invaluable international footprint with its online booking engine technology and marketing offerings; making that segment of its business a prime acquisition target for major online travel search and booking engine companies. Advancement toward this goal is guided by an executive management team with deep expertise in technology, banking, management, hospitality, branding and marketing, technical development and more.

Ecrypt Technologies, Inc. (ECRY)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Ecrypt Technologies, Inc. (ECRY). Today, Ecrypt Technologies, Inc. closed trading at $0.13, up 30.00%, on 30,650 volume with 5 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 5,146 and its 52-week low/high is $0.09/$0.179.
Ecrypt Technologies, Inc. (ECRY) is an emerging provider of military-strength data security solutions for enterprise, government, and military. The company empowers organizations with the freedom to communicate and collaborate without risk of liability, reputation damage, competitive threat, and other negative outcomes. Ecrypt is the trusted first choice for those looking to keep their communications confidential.
Today’s businesses struggle to guard against the increasing number of dangers as a result of complicated networks built with many different components that are often individually patched to address new threats, while neglecting to close security gaps in traditional solutions. On average, data breaches and subsequent fines and litigation cost a US business $534 million every year, the highest in the world according to the Ponemon Institute.
The flagship Ecrypt solution is an integrated email and encryption server that can be quickly deployed to fortify the security of corporate communication, including attachments and mobile devices, against data breaches while eliminating phishing threats, malware infections, and spam. By using Ecrypt’s paradigm-shifting technology, companies alleviate the need for separate encryption servers with their associated bloated administration and multiple points of weakness.
Ecrypt is well positioned to benefit from increasingly demanding data confidentiality regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), the Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA), and Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA). As a result of extensive market research and working directly with organizations in multi-billion dollar industries, the company fully understands the business community’s need to maintain confidentiality, prevent data breaches, comply with government regulations, and mitigate litigation risks.

LD Holdings, Inc. (LDHL)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight LD Holdings, Inc. (LDHL). Today, LD Holdings, Inc. closed trading at $0.39, up 30.00%, on 10,100 volume with 4 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 10,458, and its 52-week low/high is $0.27/$0.78.
LD Holdings, Inc. (LDHL) is a financial and management holding company focused on a niche business opportunity created by changes within the largest demographic group in America. Approximately 25 million small businesses in the United States will be sold in the next 15-20 years as the Baby Boomer generation transitions out of business ownership and into retirement. Employing a multi-faceted approach, LD Holdings seeks to take advantage of this shift by acquiring multiple profitable business entities to produce venture capital returns without the risks associated with venture capital start-ups. Presently, LDHL is targeting 4 sectors: biomedical, tech, entertainment and the green sector.
US consumers spend more than $4 Billion annually in the “do-it-for-me” (DIFM) LCS (Lawn Care Services) market, and $25 Billion+ in the LM (Lawn Maintenance) markets. They also spend another $7 Billion in the structural pest control services (PCO), a major adjacent homeowner service industry. Service category revenues vastly dwarf those of “do-it-yourself” (“DIY”), retail consumer products such as Scotts, Ortho, MiracleGro, et al despite the number of homeowners in each category being roughly equal, therefore far greater revenue per the DIFM customer. The market leaders in both LCS market, TruGreen and the LM market, Brickman/Valley Crest, have comparatively low market shares – 20% and 8% respectively – evidencing the fragmentation of both markets. Both industries are comprised of thousands of smaller firms, many of them Baby Boomer owned businesses, with many being ideal targets for “tuck-in” acquisitions. Brickman (KKR) has recently purchased Valley Crest, which ranked second on the L&L Top 100 list, for multiple times EBIDTA. In contrast, the LD Holdings business model expects to acquire the green sectors’ targeted businesses for less than EBIDTA.
Recently LD Holdings secured a $10 million (line of credit) from a qualified institution to pursue these acquisitions. This secured line of credit facility will enable the company to complete its first three acquisition targets which will total $16 million sales and $2.3 million EBITDA. The company has signed a letter of intent to close on its first company in the green sector in the 3rd quarter of this year.
LD Holdings’ five-year plan is to merge its acquired entities into cohesive business units to generate revenues through organic growth to exceed $30 Million during the first 5 years. The 5-year plan also includes additional acquisitions beyond the initial platforms and some early LM (Lawn Maintenance) “tuck-in” additions as well. Management firmly believes that the enterprise can be readily grown to $60 Million plus with LCS (Lawn Care Services) greenfield expansion (replicating the platform operating model in additional cities/geographies), franchising, branchising, and licensing. The $60 Million plus is only reflected in the company’s green sector portion of its operations.
LD Holdings is positioned to capitalize on the changing dynamics of the Baby Boomer generation while enabling investors to diversify their investment by owning several companies with increased valuations, in various sectors under one umbrella, rather than just one company at a time. Disclaimer

Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO)
The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO). Today, Zenosense, Inc. closed trading at $0.36, up 5.88%, on 396,831 volume with 88 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 32,321, and its 52-week low/high is $0.15/$1.00.
Zenosense, Inc. (ZENO) is developing and intends to market a novel device to enable hospitals to detect Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA) bacterial contamination, a major constituent of Hospital Acquired Infections (HAIs). The annual costs of treating hospitalized MRSA patients are estimated to be between $3.2 billion and $4.2 billion in the United States alone. MRSA infected patients are likely to spend three times as long in a hospital stay at three times the cost, and are five times more likely to die than an uninfected patient.
Early detection of MRSA and HAIs in general is vital. Recent studies suggest that implementing prevention practices can lead to up to a 70 percent reduction in certain HAIs with a financial benefit of using these prevention practices estimated to be as high as $25.0 billion to $31.5 billion in medical cost savings in the United States alone (according to a report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, part of the US Department of Health and Human Sciences). Currently, no cost effective early detection device is available.
The Zenosense MRSA detection device is expected to act like a “smoke detector” for MRSA; designed to detect MRSA in the environment or infected patient, even before a patient demonstrates any obvious symptoms, satisfying this huge unmet need.
Zenosense has an agreement with leading European sensor developer Sgenia Group, which is developing such a device exclusively for Zenosense through their subsidiary Zenon Biosystem. The estimated manufacturing cost per device is under $100 USD and possibly as low as $50 USD. The Zenosense device, utilizing established Sgenia programming and patent-pending hardware, utilizes a single sensor to perform an infinite number of scans, creating tens of thousands of "virtual sensors". The low cost and compact design of the Zenosense device, if successfully developed, would make it possible to be worn by individuals, as well as placed in numerous sensitive areas in the healthcare setting.
Zenosense has a streamlined management team experienced in high-level marketing in the medical sector, supported by the outsourced Zenon Biosystem scientific/development team of qualified personnel with extensive knowledge and experience in the development of sensors. Both of these teams will fuse together through a high level advisory board of experienced professionals. A cost-effective Zenosense MRSA detection device, once developed, is expected to be in high demand, driven by patient safety, cost and insurance considerations. Disclaimer

Mobile Lads Corp. (MOBO) designs and delivers secure, wide-area wireless transaction software solutions for the consumer finance, web and health payment processing sectors. The company’s solutions provide streamlined, continuous access to time-sensitive information and data on multiple network standards. Mobile Lads’ products and services, offered through its Xtreme Mobility division, centers on three core technologies that simplify and secure wireless communications: xmVerify, xmBilling, and xmOne.
xmVerify is a real-time mobile transaction security service that prevents credit card fraud by giving users control over the authorization process when making purchases. Using one of the best cryptographic services, and in compliance with most all available platforms, xmVerify sends a transaction authorization request directly to the user’s mobile phone to ensure authenticity.
xmBilling is a mobile platform that provides customers with a convenient and secure way to review and authorize automatic billing transactions, easing the challenges of automated and volume-based billing. The system sends the user a text message with a URL leading to an online e-bill where they can review details of the bill and authorize the payment via credit card with the use of their PIN number.
The xmOne mobile platform provides an array of encrypted mobile services, including top-up, payment processing, emergency notification and marketing, ideal for students and higher education facilities. xmOne interfaces with a school’s existing campus card account system to enable students to perform a variety of banking transactions from their cell phones. The university or college benefits from increased usage of the flex-dollar ecosystem, reduces overhead from ADMs, and can be customized to each school’s individual brand.
Mobile Lads is guided by a management team with a unique blend of in-depth technical expertise in wireless channel communications and a solid background in business strategy and consumer analysis. The company’s vision is to grow as a leading-edge wireless solution provider by enabling innovative, wide-area communication solutions on a global scale. Disclaimer
