Last week Stock Marketing Inc. reported on Total Nutraceutical Solutions (TNUS). Open Water Investments, StockEgg.com, Penny Invest, WallStreet Premiere, Otc Stock Alert, Simply Best Penny Stocks, DrStockPick.com, PennyOmega.com, Best Damn Penny Stocks, PennyStockPerfection.com, Momentum Trades, Monster Penny Stocks, Simply Best Penny Stocks, Round Up the Bulls, Microcap Voice,  The Cervelle Group  did earlier, and we highlight the Company, here at the Quality Stocks Daily Newsletter.

Trading on the OTCBB, Total Nutraceutical Solutions, Inc. is an emerging nutraceutical company.  Their focus is on discovering, formulating, and marketing products composed primarily of organic natural mushroom compounds that contain bioactive nutrients for potential health benefits. The Company and their medical scientists believe that maximum nutritional health effects come from consuming the whole food, rather than any number of synthetic and/or extracted dietary supplements that are available on the market. They have their corporate headquarters in Stevenson, Washington.

Total Nutraceutical Solutions research and analytical tests show humans and various animals benefit from bioactive nutrients such as L-Ergothioneine, Organic Selenium Compounds, Vitamin D, Beta-glucans, and Polyphenols naturally found in specific whole mushroom species. The Company's strategy is to create potent natural organic food products with a higher concentration of beneficial elements than would otherwise be available by simply eating a single mushroom.

The Company develops production and analytic technologies for food and nutritional supplements composed primarily of mushrooms and their mycelial biomasses. They use novel clinical models and biomarkers to show nutritional and clinical efficacy of their products. Total Nutraceutical Solutions also develops and acquires breakthrough nutritional tools and products in the fields of animal husbandry and livestock feeds. This is in addition to their preventative healthcare formulations and nutritional approaches to a broad spectrum of human conditions and illnesses.

Total Nutraceutical Solutions, Inc. reported in October 2009 that they formulated and will launch a unique natural whole food mushroom-based Vitamin D supplement. This supplement is plant-based, not animal-based. It provides a new approach to Vitamin D supplementation in health-conscious individuals. A proprietary grown mushroom, Agaricus blazei Murill (AbM), by Sylvan Bio, Inc. and Creekside Mushrooms Limited, will be stimulated with UV light to produce natural organic Vitamin D2 within the mushroom.

In early December, Total Nutraceutical Solutions, Inc. announced that they formulated a Vitamin D2 enriched mushroom dietary supplement for horses. The Company introduced EquiSANO-D™, and showed the product's efficacy in alleviating inflammation and oxidative stress in animals, at the 55th Annual Convention of the American Association of Equine Practitioners in Las Vegas, Nevada last month.

Total Nutraceutical Solutions (TNUS) closed Wednesday's session at $0.16 down 5.88 percent. Volume was 11,928.

Alcantara Brands Corporation (ACBR)

The Dean reported recently on Alcantara Brands Corporation (ACBR), and we highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Incorporated in the State of Nevada in March of 2008, Alcantara Brands is a development stage company. They intend to introduce a new line of food products to the grocery industry. The Company is developing a line of flavorings, seasonings, and condiments designed to make everyday in-home prepared meals taste better. In addition, the Company is seeking out other business opportunities.  Alcantara Brands Corporation trades on the OTC Bulletin Board and the Company has their corporate headquarters in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Alcantara Brands are made with Peruvian peppers. The intention is for their brands to transform routine in-home prepared foods into exciting meals for consumers. The Company's President is Carlos Alcantara.  Founder of Alcantara Brands, he comes from Callao, Peru. This is the basis for the Company's Peruvian brand of products, which they are currently developing.

Alcantara Brands Corporation's product line will leverage the more intense and ethnic flavor trends, with a healthier option by the fact that their flavor will not require extra fat, sugar, or salt, which often finds use in products to generate flavor. The design and development of their product line is for the North American palate and lifestyle. The Company's intention is that these products will have their introduction into the mainstream food market.

The design of their products is to provide an easy, convenient way to bring spice to meals, with a touch of heat. The design of their product line is also to add sales for retailers. This is through the introduction of a new grocery category (seasoning pastes), and distinctive, unique flavors (the Peruvian peppers) to established condiment categories.

Alcantara Brands Corporation expects these products will appeal to the fast-growing consumer segments: consumers who like hot and spicy foods, and those looking for offerings that are more ethnic. They intend for supermarkets to use Alcantara Brands' high-margin product line to build up their specialty food offering, differentiating themselves from mass merchandisers. The product line of seasoning pastes does not replace other products. They find use in addition to them. This represents an opportunity for retailers to build category growth.

Alcantara Brands Corporation (ACBR) closed Wednesday's trading session at $0.42 up 68.00 percent. Volume was 48,000.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB) Today, Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. closed trading at $0.0130, which was up 3.17 percent from yesterday's close. Their volume today was 43,550 shares.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB) a biotechnology company, has their focus on developing high performance polymers and technical fibers. The company is utilizing their proprietary genetic engineering technology to develop and produce polymers and protein-based materials, including Spider silk, which may have numerous commercial and consumer applications.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (KBLB) is working with university scientists and laboratories to create these new polymers that have potentially broad applications in the multi-billion dollar marketplace for high performance polymers. The company sponsors and collaborates on research projects within university genetic engineering laboratories as a means of utilizing the greatest minds in their field.

Spider Silk is one of the strongest fibers produced in nature. The spider's repelling silk is of particular commercial interest since it is both extremely strong and extremely flexible. Although exciting commercial opportunities exist for the natural polymer, there is no known way to produce the fibers in commercial quantity. KraigLabs, in cooperation with two leading universities, has acquired proprietary genetic engineering technology to unlock the mystery.

CEO Kim Thompson leads the company with formal education in the fields of economics and law. With interest in genetic engineering dating back to the 1970s, Mr. Thompson has invented a pending provisional patent application for a number of organic polymers. This patent application has been assigned to benefit Kraig Biocraft and is a central part of the company's efforts in bringing those inventions to the market. Disclaimer

FormCap Corp. (FRMC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight FormCap Corp. (FRMC) Today, FormCap Corp. closed trading at $0.45, for no change. Their volume today was 51,810 shares.

FormCap Corp. (FRMC) is an emerging oil & gas exploration and development company. With a primary focus on the discovery and development of oil in the Continental United States, the company has assembled 4,800 acres of oil and gas mineral leases, together called the Weber City Prospect, located in Curry County, New Mexico.

The Weber City Prospect has been defined by detailed geological information including well log data, seismic, Landsat and independent third party geological interpretation. After thorough review of the collected data, FormCap believes there is potential to drill up to 100 wells that could produce over 300 million barrels of oil.

The initial well will be drilled to a total depth of 6,500' to test four potential productive hydrocarbon zones; the San Andres, Clearfork, Wolfcamp and, the primary objective, the Cisco Formation. The company has also outlined multiple secondary objectives in the primary producing zones of the Permain Basin of New Mexico and Texas.

The Permian Basin is very prolific and well known for its oil production. Owning their leases 100%, FormCap is fully in charge of its exploration and drill plan. The four well established formations should provide FormCap with a relatively low risk opportunity as the company’s experienced management team dedicates all efforts towards profitability.

General Environmental Management Inc. (GEVI) is in the process of shifting its business focus from hazardous waste field services to the fast growing water treatment and waste-to-energy markets.

On a global basis, the industry size exceeds $400 billion annually and increasing with the demands of a growing world population. The global waste-to-energy market, on the other hand, is a $19.9 billion market with expected CAGR of 6.7% over the next five years.

In order to ensure every advantageous acquisition opportunity is properly evaluated, GEVI has retained the services of General Pacific Partners (GPP). With a very selective and calculated acquisition strategy in place, GEVI is poised for continued success. Disclaimer

General Environmental Management Announces Completion of Acquisition of Santa Clara Waste Water

EGPI Firecreek, Inc. (EFIR) Signs Definitive Agreement to Acquire 2,076 Mile Sierra Pipeline Natural Gas Gathering System

EGPI Firecreek Inc. has initiated its most aggressive move towards establishing its oil and gas division. The company announced today the execution of a definitive agreement to acquire the Sierra Pipeline Gathering System and the Sierra Pipeline Company. EGPI Firecreek is purchasing Sierra Pipeline from Koch Corporation, the nation’s largest privately-owned company.

The Sierra Pipeline Gathering System has approximately 2,076 miles of pipeline and pipeline gathering systems located primarily in the state of Oklahoma and the adjoining states of Kansas and Indiana. The pipeline, which was originally created to transport oil, currently has over 28,000 wells within close proximity for utilization, production and transportation. The pipelines also have the capability to develop, gather and transport natural gas.

EGPI Firecreek plans to analyze, explore and exploit all potential revenue streams for the pipeline. Conservative valuations estimate the pipeline’s current assets to be in the $16 million range. Additionally, a 2009 appraisal estimates its overall potential value to be in excess of $150 million once the property is utilized to its production capabilities.
Chairman and CEO of EGPI Firecreek, Dennis Alexander, stated, “This definitive agreement with the Sierra Pipeline Company is a major breakthrough in our efforts to initiate the revamping of our oil and gas division. We believe this milestone will set a significant precedent in once again establishing our company as a productive and producing oil and gas company.”

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Serves the Underserved

Consorteum Holdings Inc. has stated as its basic mission the providing of groundbreaking card, payment, and transaction processing solutions. In so doing, it is clearly taking advantage of the increased global need for more flexible approaches in consumer financial services (CFS), together with the availability of new technologies that allow for instant worldwide data communications. CFS providers in Europe and North America have begun to actively encourage the development of more creative transaction alternatives, and Consorteum has positioned itself to be a leading resource for such alternatives. The company sees itself as facilitating initiatives that bring together the best technologies, processes, and partnerships, to service a very well-defined user base.

Although Consorteum is initially targeting a number of key markets, a major focus has been users that are considered unbanked or underbanked, such as migrant workers who find themselves having to cash their pay checks at high-fee check stores. It can also include low income individuals who receive government benefits, but have an inadequate banking relationship to make easy use of the funds. In fact, it is estimated that perhaps 25% of the North American workforce can be considered unbanked or underbanked, a huge number.

Traditionally, banks have done little to meet the needs of this market, due to costs and risks. For example, it is very expensive to service customers via a branch teller when that customer is carrying a zero balance. And such users may not qualify for credit cards or mortgages, so banks have little opportunity to turn them into profitable long-term customers.

Consorteum addresses this growing need in a number of ways, such as working with employers and government agencies to allow the use of reloadable payment cards. Each pay period, funds are automatically deposited to the employee’s card account, which can be used like any cash card for retail purchases or at bank machines. Workers are given immediate access to their payroll funds no matter where they are located. Social assistance payments can be directly loaded onto prepaid cards, instead of issuing a large number of manual checks, saving the government money and making it easier for recipients.

Artificial Life, Inc. (ALIF) 2010 Strategy Includes New M-commerce Platform, Greater Emphasis on Mobile Business and Lifestyle Applications

Artificial Life, Inc., a world-wide leader in providing innovative mobile communications and interactive gaming for 3-4G network-enabled platforms, today disclosed details for its 2010 strategy.

Setting records in 2009 for revenue generation, ALIF scored big on the strength of mobile gaming and business application sales. In 2009 alone, the company generated in excess of 5 million downloads for its series of iPhone games, and had over 20 million mobile game licenses sold to downloaders throughout the world, making Artificial Life one of the world’s top publishers.

CEO Eberhard Schoneburg expressed his satisfaction with the Company’s 2009 performance, noting that “despite the global financial crisis” Artificial Life was able to maintain robust sales while enhancing its “competitive position”, especially in the growing smartphone market.
Schoneburg reaffirmed the company’s trajectory for 2010, indicating the Company was driven to “maintain and further improve” the leading position it has already obtained in this business field.

While maintaining a strong presence via its established mobile gaming efforts, ALIF will also seek to grow the mobile business and lifestyle-applications end of the business. The company will seek to balance the ratio of sales represented by 2009 figures, where 58% was attributable to mobile gaming and only 42% to business and lifestyle applications, by putting substantially more effort into developing and marketing the latter.

Artificial Life will diversify its footprint and enhance profitability for its investors with several new mobile business and lifestyle applications which are currently under development, including:
• Mobile care and monitoring for diabetes
• Mobile security, virtual object reconstruction and digital watermarking
• Mobile image recognition and augmented reality
• Mobile green technology, including environmental protection monitoring and control Schoneburg noted that, with the “support of our business partners and new shareholders”, the Company would move further into “mobile business and lifestyle applications in 2010”, where demand was growing rapidly thanks to an “ever increasing number of smartphones produced and sold worldwide”.

Plans for the imminent release of an updated version of the company’s proprietary MobileBooster platform, which will offer significantly extended capabilities (allowing the platform to function as a flexible and fully functional m-commerce platform for business clients), will enhance ALIF’s 2010 strategy.

The new version of the MobileBooster platform will offer intuitive user-configurability features that will greatly improve the end-user experience. Artificial Life intends to reveal more details regarding this dynamic m-commerce platform soon.

Schoneburg expects the new m-commerce platform to synergistically enhance the marketability of its business and lifestyle applications and help the company to win “new B2B clients and to create an even broader international corporate client base”.

Leading security and data company View Systems, Inc. announced today that international interest continues to grow regarding the company’s endeavors. To date, View Systems has received inquiries from India, Bangladesh and Yemen, among others.

Increased global interest in View System’s cutting-edge security product line stems from the efforts of international dealers promoting the items to their end users. Belcom, a subsidiary of the Belhasa Group of Companies, has been instrumental in generating leads and moving product. As one of View System’s most valued business partners, Belcom represents View Systems’ products in the Middle East, Africa and Asia regions. In late 2009, Belcom announced a ViewScan sale to MphasiS, (a Hewlett Packard Company), to cover five locations in India.

The company’s representatives were well-received during a visit to the “Charm of Macao: 10 Year Celebration of Macao’s Return to China,” where ViewScan units seamlessly scanned each guest as they entered the venue. The use of the ViewScan units at the event comes from the positive attention gained from Zhongbao Security Business Consulting Co., Ltd’s order of 50 ViewScans last year.

Gunther Than, CEO of View Systems, commented, “We find ourselves responding to an increasing amount of international inquiries regarding not only the ViewScan, but also the MMV and LAW. Prospective clients worldwide tend to prefer the ViewScan due to its non-contact, hands-off screening and rapid throughput; the ViewScan is 4-5 times faster than its leading competitors. We continue to rely on the support efforts of our authorized international dealers who act as a catalyst for prompt and accurate communications and sales.”
