Energy 1 Corp. (EGOC)
First Penny Picks reported recently on Energy 1 Corp. (EGOC), StocksGoneWild, Actual Gains did earlier, and we are highlighting the Company as "One to Watch" here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.
Headquartered in Boca Raton, Florida, Energy 1 Corp. manufactures fuel efficiency and emission reduction solutions for retrofit on diesel-powered engines. This includes vehicles and constant speed equipment. Energy 1 offers partial systems, complete fuel & emissions solutions and custom packages. The Company manufactures and distributes the ExhausTek & IonTek product lines, as well as TekFuel Systems. Founded in 2003, Energy 1 lists on the OTC Markets.
The ExhausTek is the world's first Vortex Field Ionizer (VFI) for emission reduction on diesel motors. It replaces two components, the diesel particulate matter filter (DPF) and NOx trap.
The IonTek is a VFI device that focuses on the pre-burn treatment of airflow. It is available in a non-collective unit for vehicles either with air filters or as a collective unit for supercharged engines where there is a desire for dust removal. Using the IonTek alone, or as part of an overall system, reduces emissions and increases fuel economies for any type of motor or fuel used - diesel, alternative fuels or gasoline. Using the IonTek, either alone or in part with the ExhausTek, improves performance, reduces emission and increases fuel economy.
Energy 1's TekFuel System is the first on-demand hydrogen-based retrofit system. Fuel efficiency and emission reduction results from the general reduction of fuel spent because of the introduction of an alternative fuel, which also aids in a more complete burn of the base fuel in use. Furthermore, Energy 1 has their E1 Hybrid Truck Development initiative. The Company is now developing a Hybrid approach to emission reduction and fuel efficiency. This development involves their technology and employs other's as well. It will be a replacement to the "standard" Class 8 motor.
Energy 1's services include Clean Truck Leasing Services, Owner Operator Services and Custom Retrofit Services. For example, their Owner Operator Services offers full service and managed programs for sole operators and small trucking companies looking to get into or expand their business.
This past September, Energy 1 acquired Master Lease. Based in Henderson, Colorado, Master Lease is a truck & trailer leasing enterprise. Their current portfolio consists of over 150 active leasing customers with approximately 250 over-the-road trucks & trailers and some specialty equipment.
Earlier this month, Energy 1 announced their financial performance for the third quarter of 2012.

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 $0.203, down 1.46%, on 87,247 volume with 26 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 129,125, and its 52-week low/high is $0.161/$0.68.
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.

International Stem Cell Corporation’s stem cell technology platform has been called one of the most important in modern medicine. The company owns the key patents for parthenogenetic stem cells (hpSCs), pluripotent stem cells derived from unfertilized oocytes (eggs) collected during in vitro fertilization.
Since hpSCs are not derived from human embryos, the ethical issues that plague the use of embryonic stem cells are not an issue. It’s a derivation method that also provides unique advantages when it comes to the problem of cell rejection by the patient, since hpSCs have only the mother’s DNA. Such a limited DNA set means that there is far less chance of rejection when such cells are used for therapy. As a result, a relatively few hpSC cell lines could be compatible for use with the vast majority of people on earth. And, unlike adult stem cells, hpSCs are pluripotent, able to be transformed into many types of cells, for use in many applications. Collectively, these differences represent an extraordinary competitive advantage.
ISCO recently announced that they have now successfully created the world’s first human clinical-grade stem cell lines that can be immune-matched to millions of individuals, initial lines that comply with strict government standards for medical application. These cells can now be used in clinical trials for the treatment of various diseases, and the fact that they are hpSC cells means that they will have a much smaller chance of being rejected by a given patient than other types of stem cells. Diseases currently being considered for investigation include Parkinson’s and other brain/nerve related diseases, liver diseases, and diabetes, as well as diseases of the eye.
The collective market for such diseases spans millions of people and billions of potential market dollars, and ISCO has now shown that hpSCs, with all of their advantages, are a producible and viable option for the world medical community.

In addition to their investment activities, Bergamo Acquisition, a global investment company dealing with private equity funds and other investment sources targeting companies for acquisition or co-investment, has been working with Florida-based subsidiary Bergamo Energy to develop alternative energy sources for countries in Asia, Africa, and the Middle East. Many of these countries are stressed for energy and other basic utilities, both for homes and industry, which has created a downward pressure on their ability to develop and move forward.
A key result of the company’s efforts is a solar generator, for use with individual homes, apartment buildings, government buildings, airports, and other facilities. The generator is capable of providing up to 100KVA of clean energy. In addition, Bergamo offers a solar operated tube well water pumping system capable of providing up to 160,000 liters per hour of clean drinking water. The company’s universal invertors enable existing pumps running on electric power to run on solar power.
Bergamo Acquisition’s solar energy operated water pumping and water desalination system can be used widely for seawater desalination, desert controlling, daily life water supply, agricultural irrigation, forest irrigation, waterscape, and water treatment projects. The generator and well pumping system have been developed for initial use in Pakistan, India, Sudan, Bangladesh, and other areas of need. In particular, the solar powered pumping system is a proprietary design made to BGMO’s specifications in order to meet the rigorous demands of emerging countries.
Bergamo has been working with government officials, manufacturers, and importers to introduce this technology, which costs far less than competitive systems. The idea is to provide a foundational lift to millions of farmers and other people, allowing them to produce food and other fundamentals at a reduced cost.

General Moly, the Colorado-based mineral developer focused on pure-play molybdenum projects with two primary sites in Nevada, the Mt. Hope (80% owned) and Liberty (100%) projects, reported today via the company’s Mt. Hope subsidiary, Eureka Moly, LLC, that the BLM has accepted reclamation bonding for the Mt. Hope project and cleared the company to proceed with breaking surface at the site.
The reclamation permit, based on a site specific application that validated the company’s proposed methodology for taking the site through reclamation and into productive post-mining land use, issued by Nevada’s Division of Environmental Protection (Nov 19), also cleared the $73M cost estimate and laid down the financial guarantee structure around this estimate necessary to proceed. Having organized a surety underwriters group through Marsh USA Inc., thus satisfying the financial guarantees required by BLM stipulations in the Record of Decision, GMO is ready to begin construction of facilities on the moly-rich Mt. Hope property, considered to be one of the largest, highest grade moly deposits on earth.
With funding for the surety program coming in well in-line with August 2012 capital estimates for the job at around $17.2M, the initial cash outlay of $5.6M made, and JV partner POS-Minerals Corp. at the ready to also fund the construction phase remainder, GMO will be looking to start early well field development very soon. Heavier facility construction can begin in the spring and until then the company will be mostly doing site prep alongside the light construction, “clearing and grubbing,” as COO of GMO, Bob Pennington put it.
With estimated reserves as some 572M tons grading 0.085% moly on a mine life of over 58 years (Exxon, 1988), Mt. Hope is an exceptional domestic source for this crucial substance that is needed widely as an alloy for making high-strength steel, as well as being used in the petroleum industry for cracking sulfur out of fuel (and many, many more uses).
That $17.2M figure covers approximately three years and should take the company well into development at Mt. Hope, giving GMO a strong second pillar to go along with their Liberty project in the Tonopah area (29M tons of ore produced between 1981-1991 grading 0.11%). Molybdenum is one of the inescapably vital fundamental resource commodities for the global economy moving forward and this is a superb opportunity for investors to get in at the ground floor with a domestic company that is bucking to become one of the world’s top names in moly production.
