Petrosonic Energy, Inc. (PSON)
Greenbackers, Chart Advisor, Coattail Investor, Penny Stock Professor, and Trade of the Week, Investor Spec Sheet, TheStockAdvisors, Wyatt Investment Research, and Weiss Research reported recently on Petrosonic Energy, Inc. (PSON), and we are reporting on the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Founded in 2008, Petrosonic Energy, Inc. established to deliver cutting-edge technologies to the energy sector. The Company's current primary focus is to provide technologies that upgrade heavy oil economically and in an environmental friendly manner. The Company formerly went by the name Bearing Mineral Exploration, Inc. They changed their corporate name to Petrosonic Energy, Inc. in May of this year. Petrosonic Energy has their headquarters in Calgary, Alberta.
The Company's patented SonoprocessTM uses clean tech sonic energy to de-asphalt heavy oil at much smaller scale and lower capital costs than conventional Upgraders and without use of water or release of emissions in the atmosphere. This commercial process improves heavy oil densities by 6 to 15 API from as low as 8 API. It reduces viscosities of oil by 99 percent to pipeline specifications and reduces sulphur and heavy metals by more than 50 percent.
The Sonoprocess™ is especially beneficial to producers with a number of intrinsic challenges. These include stranded heavy oil due to transportation issues; diluent supply issues; limited refining markets (light oil refiners struggle with heavy oil), and heavy discounts due to density adjustments, high sulphur content, as well as high metals content.
In late September, Petrosonic Energy announced that they signed a cooperation agreement with a leading private Emulsion Technology Company for the Upstream and Downstream Oil Industry that has an exclusive license in a heavy crude and asphaltene emulsification patented technology. The private company has committed to set up a 120 bbl/hour heavy crude and asphaltene emulsification plant in Petrosonic's Heavy Oil Processing Plant located in Albania. This will create technology and marketing synergy for both groups; it will allow Petrosonic Energy to convert the de-asphalted oil and asphaltenes into readily marketable emulsified fuel oil and high-end asphalt and capture further value for the Company's products.
The Company is commercializing their Sonoprocess™ Heavy Oil Upgrading Technology via their wholly owned subsidiaries and joint ventures with third parties. Petrosonic is building a facility to provide a 1,000 barrel of oil per day processing for the upgrading of heavy oil. This plant will be the first commercialization of their Sonic Reactor to provide energy and cost efficient heavy oil processing. Once this application has been achieved, Petrosonic plans to expand their capacity up to 5,000 barrels per day.
Petrosonic Energy, Inc. (PSON), closed Friday’s session at $0.63, up 5.00%, on 13,722 volume with 13 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 206,422 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.1778/$0.78.
Cambridge Heart, Inc. (CAMH)
OTC Picks, Epic Stock Picks, Thestockwizards.net, PennyOmega.com, and DrStockPick.com reported earlier on Cambridge Heart, Inc. (CAMH), and we choose to highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Headquartered in Tewksbury, Massachusetts, Cambridge Heart, Inc. develops and commercializes non-invasive diagnostic tests for cardiac disease, with a focus on identifying those at risk for sudden cardiac arrest (SCA). The Company's products incorporate proprietary Microvolt T-Wave Alternans measurement technologies. These include the patented Analytic Spectral Method® and ultrasensitive disposable electrode sensors.
The Company's mission is to reduce the incidence of sudden cardiac arrest (SCA) through developing accurate, non-invasive technologies to identify individuals at risk of life-threatening arrhythmias. Their diagnostic products incorporate proprietary technology for the measurement of Microvolt T-Wave Alternans™ (MTWA), a subtle beat-to-beat fluctuation in the T-wave segment of the electrocardiogram (ECG), which is a marker of SCA risk.
The estimation is that there are approximately 10 to 12 million heart attack and heart failure patients in the United States who can benefit from annual Microvolt T-Wave Alternans (MTWA) testing. MTWA is a marker of SCA risk, which is measured during a non-invasive treadmill test using Cambridge Heart's proprietary technologies.
Microvolt T-Wave Alternans is a non-invasive, clinically proven test. Cambridge Heart's proprietary Analytic Spectral Method® can detect subtle, microvolt-level T-wave alternans (MTWA) not visible to the human eye.
MTWA can undergo measurement during a low-level exercise stress test, a pharmacologic stress test, or through pacing using proprietary high-resolution sensors to detect subtle changes in the ECG. Several prospective studies have demonstrated the clinical efficacy of MTWA as a marker for arrhythmic death. Cambridge Heart's MTWA test has its basis on research conducted at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Medicare, under their National Coverage Policy, reimburses it.
On Wednesday, Cambridge Heart reported results for the three and nine months ended September 30, 2012.

Tarsin, a Leader in Secure Mobile Platform Technology, Forges New Frontiers in Mobile Gaming
It’s been a busy year for Skinny Nutritional, the innovator behind Skinny Water and a leader in the zero-calorie enhanced water category.
The company kicked off 2012 with the introduction of its Skinny Water line of beverages to consumers in the state of Colorado through a distribution agreement with New Age Beverage Company. This came on the heels of a public announcement about the distribution agreement in December of 2011.
In April, Skinny entered into a national partnership with JDRF, a global leader for finding cures and treatments for type 1 diabetes. Skinny signed on to aid JDRF in its type 1 diabetes fundraising efforts throughout the year, agreeing to provide onsite support for 12 designated JDRF “Walk to Cure Diabetes” events throughout the nation. Skinny also agreed to provide hydration stations at partnering JDRF chapter events, and the company additionally committed to provide more than 50,000 bottles of its Skinny Water zero-calorie enhanced beverages to support the JDRF community.
In May, Skinny took steps to further strengthen its Midwest brand presence by entering into a distribution agreement with D&B Grocers Wholesale, Inc., a family-owned and operated company headquartered in Livonia, Mich. This agreement expanded the distribution of Skinny Water throughout state of Michigan.
In July, Skinny announced a financing transaction with Trim Capital LLC involving the issuance of $9 million of preferred and common stock and a $6 million senior secured credit facility. At the initial closing, Skinny sold a $1 million senior secured bridge note. Trim Capital’s investment boosted the company’s momentum to accelerate its marketing and branding initiatives, add new product lines, and build inventory levels.
Also in July, Skinny announced that it was further strengthening its mid-Atlantic market penetration through the A&P retail banner of stores. A&P retail locations, including Pathmark, Superfresh, Waldbaum’s, and A&P, began carrying Skinny Water in 275 locations throughout the mid-Atlantic. This brought Skinny Water’s total retail presence to more than 14,275 stores throughout the U.S.
In August, Skinny announced the addition of Skinny Water pH+, a high-alkaline and electrolyte water, to its product lineup. Infused with minerals, Skinny Water pH+ is inspired by the alkaline diet favored by celebrities, medical practitioners, and health-conscious consumers for keeping the body balanced and promoting weight loss and overall wellbeing.
As an eventful 2012 winds down, Skinny is gearing up for another full year of offering consumers “the ultimate hydration experience” in 2013.

A mortgage loan is one of the most important commitments the average person makes. And the first step that most consumers take today when looking for a suitable mortgage loan is to search the Web, hoping to track down the best deal for their particular needs. But looking online for a mortgage loan can be extraordinarily frustrating when all you have to deal with is a bunch of competing websites.
A common concern that consumers have when looking online for a mortgage loan is the lack of transparency. People get hit with a world of numbers, but still feel uncertain about exactly what they are getting or who to trust. With all of the rates and fees and types of loans, it’s easy to be confused, even intimidated, and flashy sales-oriented websites make matters worse. In many cases, online presentations seem more devoted to making a sale than in truly clarifying options. Even more concerning is everything that is not said, important information that may not come out until the consumer is already actively engaged in the mortgage process.
Loans4Less, a growing web-based mortgage broker, has targeted exactly this widespread consumer concern, providing not only a clear and easy-to-use source of mortgage loan information through multiple websites, but also a written and unambiguous statement of their professional promise to the consumer. It lays out in straight-forward language all of the things they are committed to do, including:
• Offering the lowest deliverable rates and closing costs
• No rate or points quotes that are not deliverable
• Guaranteed closing costs
• Clear procedures for loan application and ongoing communications
• No passing of confidential customer information to any third party
• No ordering of credit profiles without specific customer permission
• The most professional service and communication
They also include important information that consumers need to consider when comparing mortgage loans, to protect people from deceptive presentations and practices. It’s all about transparency and clarity, which has been key to the company’s positive reputation and growth.

Marley Coffee, a sustainably grown, ethically farmed and artisan roasted gourmet coffee, today announced that its Marley Coffee Real Cups™ is currently available or will become available in the upcoming week across Canada through several Office Coffee Service distributors as well as London Drugs stores in Western Canada. Marley Coffee’s Real Cups will be compatible with most of Keurig’s branded single serve k-cup machines, which is the leading single-cup brewing system in North America, with an estimated presence of more than 378,000 offices and 10.8 million homes. Marley Coffee now enters the fastest growing business in the coffee space.
Marley Coffee will be offering four varieties: Get Up, Stand Up (light roast), One Love 100% Ethiopia Yirgacheffe (medium), Lively Up 5 Bean Espresso (medium dark), and Talkin’ Blues 100% Jamaica Blue Mountain® (medium). The company will also be offering a 36 count variety pack.
“This will truly be a huge opportunity for Marley Coffee and I’m proud that we’ve finally gotten this product out into the market. I’m happy to be introducing this product to all of our family’s existing partners. So far, I’ve been receiving phone calls from some very prominent and large distributors that carry my family’s other products that want to bring in our Real Cups soon,” says Rohan Marley, Chairman and Founder of Marley Coffee.
ECS Coffee http://www.ecscoffee.com/, Markol Distributors http://markcol.com/ and Personal Service Coffee http://www.personalservicecoffee.ca/ currently have Marley Coffee Real Cups available for their customers. Additionally, Vending Products of Canada http://www.vendproductscan.com/, which is a distributor covering Vancouver, Calgary and Toronto are carrying both Marley Coffee’s Real Cups as well as the company’s line of other coffee solutions for OCS operators.
London Drugs http://www.londondrugs.com/, a long time supporter and partner of Marley Coffee will carry the entire line of Real Cups throughout their 73 stores. According to store representatives, the single-serve coffee market has outpaced traditional bagged coffee sales for the past two years and is the fastest growing category in the coffee space.
“There is an opening for Marley Coffee to eat up significant market share in what we believe is still a very early stage industry,” says Brent Toevs, CEO of Marley Coffee. “There are about 14 million households in Canada and another 120 million in the United States, with an average about 70% of them having some sort of coffee maker. Juxtapose that to the speed of growth we’re seeing in the single-serve space, there’s a lot of room left to go up.”
For the home, Marley Coffee offers two varieties of Jamaica Blue Mountain® Ground and Whole Bean roasts and six varieties of certified USDA Organic Ground Coffee as well as Organic Whole Bean coffee and compostable Single-Serve At-Home Pods. Marley Coffee is also available for the trade in Traditional 2.5oz Fracs, compostable Single-Serve Breakroom Pods, and Branded Vending and Foodservice Solutions.

Telkonet, which developed all of the technologies in their EcoSmart platform (with Recovery Time™ technology that actually learns from the environment via the internal/external sensors) in order to effect an in-room energy management network that the user can control in a very granular fashion, reported today that the company has landed its EcoSmart energy management systems in three of the Hilton Worldwide hotels in the Greater Chicago area.
Energy management system specialists focused on the hospitality sector, Green to Guest, have made installations in some 750 rooms total using TKOI’s revolutionary EcoInsight energy management thermostats, which have over 125 configurable settings and constantly calculate the optimal room-by-room, occupant-by-occupant comfort parameters. The ability to drive a steady stream of data from HVAC systems so that the EcoSmart patented Recovery Time engine can tune how far the temperature can drift from the occupant’s setpoint before needing to bring levels back in line constitutes a real-time setback temperature hedge, delivering incredible bottom line savings, especially in such an application as a hotel.
With the addition of TKOI’s proprietary energy management platform, the Hilton Northbrook, Hilton Lisle/Naperville, and DoubleTree Alsip hotels will be able to reduce energy consumption by up to 35%. Quantify the savings this kind of technology can bring to long-form, redundant usage profiles like a hotel and it is very easy to see why investors are raving about TKOI. The Telkonet EcoSmart platform’s ability to intelligently tune temperatures and calculate required up-time for the HVAC systems based on occupancy of the space is paradigm-shattering for a business like a hotel.
CEO of Green to Guest, Brandon Husko, raved about how there is no fixed setback temperature and how the EcoSmart Recovery Time engine automatically finds dynamic temperatures for individual rooms, making the implementation both user friendly, lightweight/simple, and yet highly intuitive/sophisticated in terms of how it handles the overall HVAC usage. The hotels even rolled out TKOI’s Green Button feature, allowing occupants to opt-in for energy conservation measures, with customers getting to feel good as they press the button for modest adjustments to the setback and Recovery Time parameters, resulting in a measurable reduction to overall environmental impact. The Green Button is a brilliant feature which drives end market engagement while promoting organic PR for the location that uses TKOI hardware.
This initiative dovetails exceptionally well with Hilton Worldwide’s brand presence/identity and their five year commitment (09-14) to push serious sustainability infrastructural goals aimed at all of the major vectors like lighting, water, waste, energy use, and emissions. TKOI is really helping Hilton meet their 20% energy reduction target for 2014; and with an average 6.6% reduction already achieved, the Hilton Northbrook, Hilton Lisle/Naperville, and DoubleTree Alsip are gearing up to lead the pack with even higher savings.
Co-owner of the three hotels, Frank Allgauer, noted how sustainability was gaining dominance among leisure and business categories of clientele and how the TKOI hardware allows the hotels to not only meet their sustainability goals without impacting guest experience, but also engage the customers in a meaningful way which helps to promote the entire concept. The execution is brilliant, customers don’t even notice the real-time modulation because of how efficient the Recovery Time technology is and they can opt-in to go even greener. Precisely the kind of marketing ingenuity that keeps a hotel thriving.
