Shrink Nanotechnologies, Inc. (INKN)

Today we are highlighting Shrink Nanotechnologies, Inc. (INKN) as "One to Watch" this week, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Shrink Nanotechnologies, Inc. is a nanotechnology company developing products and licensing opportunities in the solar energy production, biotechnology research, and development tools and medical diagnostics businesses. The Company bases their products on proprietary material, a pre-stressed plastic called NanoShrink™, and on their patent-pending manufacturing process called the ShrinkChip Manufacturing Solution™. Shrink Nanotechnologies, Inc. trades on the OTC Bulletin Board and they have their corporate headquarters in Carlsbad, California.

NanoShrink™ is the plastic substrate material the Company uses to build all of the products they design, prototype, and manufacture. Their primary NanoShrink™ substrate is made from a pre-stressed polystyrene material. By taking advantage of certain critical inherent characteristics, shrinkable polystyrene allows for the ultra-rapid direct patterning of complex, even three-dimensional, stacked polystyrene micro and nanostructures.

The Company's patent-pending process involves printing designed and related microstructures on a larger scale on NanoShrink and then uniformly shrinking them down to a nano-scale size. By using their technologies to "print" on a larger scale, and then "shrink" the same features down to the nano-scale, they eliminate the need for clean rooms and other highly complex robotics or tools needed to accomplish this.

Shrink Nanotechnologies, Inc. is a FIGA™ business - bringing together leaders from the worlds of Finance, Industry, Government and Academia to form a for-profit business. The result is Shrink Nanotechnologies and their technology being well received in leading academic journals. These include Nature Medicine™, Lab-on-a-Chip™ and Advanced Materials™. Most recently, MIT's Technology Review awarded their prestigious TR35 award to the Company's scientific founder, Dr. Michelle Khine.

Dr. Khine developed innovations that have become the core of what is now Shrink Nanotechnologies. The Company has 11 exclusive patent pending technologies and is developing products and licensing partnerships in three main vertical markets. These include Solar Energy, Medical and Diagnostic Sensors, and Research Tools to advance innovation in some of the most important medical fields.

Yesterday, Shrink Nanotechnologies, Inc. outlined key milestones for 2010, which they expect to have a significant impact on the solar, biotechnology, and medical diagnostics industries. The Company is rapidly progressing this year toward the commercialization of products and signing agreements with leading manufacturing and distribution multi-nationals.

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) 

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV). Today, National Automation Services, Inc. closed trading at $0.07, which was up 14.01 percent. Their volume today was 53,300 shares.  

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) is a public holding company focused on designing, engineering, installing and maintaining automated control systems for such business applications as waste water treatment, water treatment, airport security, bottling plants, power plants, metals, mining, breweries, food processing, tire making, textiles, plastics and nearly all production activities.  

Dominant players in the $500 Billion national and international automation controls market include Siemens, Honeywell, Fisher Controls, Johnson Controls and others. In addition to the multi-nationals, it has been estimated that there could be as many as 300 local and regional firms providing automation control services. In general, these companies have an edge on the larger behemoths because they can better respond to the needs of local business and municipalities.  

Unfortunately, for these smaller companies, they compete in a limited market space, have stunted growth prospects and have no way of monetizing their asset value. NAS aims to capitalize on this condition by acquiring and integrating the strongest local and regional players into a new organization that would allow for the synergies and efficiencies of a national company while keeping the competitive advantages of decentralized management and service.  

Of the 300 local and regional automation companies, 42 meet the company’s acquisition criteria; 11 of which have been targeted for acquisition over the next two years. NAS projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 Million and year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 Million predicated on meeting its targeted acquisition schedule. With a solid business plan in place, NAS has a firm foundation to generate strong cash flow and increase shareholder value over the long-term. Disclaimer

Energtek, Inc. (EGTK)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Energtek, Inc. (EGTK). Today Energtek, Inc. closed trading at $0.2790, which was up 9.41 percent. Their volume today was 1,000 shares.

Energtek, Inc. (EGTK) is focused on developing and commercializing Adsorbed Natural Gas (ANG) technology. This technology enables the storage of comparable gas quantities at reduced pressure, dramatically decreasing the capital investment and operational costs of natural gas vehicles. The company recognizes the global markets' demands to diversify energy sources and is working on breakthrough technologies that deliver natural gas to the consumer, even where no gas pipeline and compressing infrastructure exist.

Because natural gas is cheaper, cleaner and available in greater quantities than oil, Energtek believes it is the most practical motor fuel alternative. Natural gas is primarily comprised of methane, which is one of the simplest and most abundant substances found in nature, especially when compared to oil. Taking advantage of natural gas resources located across the globe will also reduce the number of countries forced to import motor fuel, including the USA.

The percentage of Natural Gas Vehicles (NGVs) in many countries is growing rapidly. Today, there are more than 8.7 million NGVs on the road, a number that is growing by more than 30% per year. Even with this robust growth, NGVs still represent only a small percentage of the overall vehicle market. Until now, costly refueling infrastructure, as well as the inconvenience of integrating NG tanks into vehicles, has limited the growth of NGVs. However, by enabling the use of natural gas in places previously impossible, Energtek's proprietary ANG technology promises to greatly expand the NGV market.

CEO Lev Zaidenberg leads the company with extensive experience starting and managing several successful hi-tech companies in Israel, Europe and the USA. Mr. Zaidenberg received a B.Sc. in Applied Mathematics and an MBA from Tel-Aviv University. Professor Yuri Ginzburg serves alongside Zaidenberg with a PhD / D.Sc in Mechanical Engineering and a comprehensive background in the automotive industry. Ginzburg is a specialist in alternative fuel systems and R&D projects management, and has authored 18 patents and over 70 scientific works. Disclaimer

GenSpera, Inc. (GNSZ) Receives US Patent for Tumor Activated Prodrugs

Today, GenSpera, Inc. announced that the United States Patent and Trademark Office has issued the company’s patent application, entitled “Tumor Activated Prodrugs,” as US Patent 7,635,682. The patent covers the composition and potential uses of GenSpera’s G-115 second anti-cancer drug, which is currently in development.

GenSpera, Inc. owns and controls all rights to G-115. The company anticipates a strategic partnership to maximize the drug’s value as it progresses through future clinical trials. G-115 can be selectively activated within prostate tumors by an enzyme, Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA), which is active only within prostate tissue and prostate cancer tumors. In preclinical testing, G-115 was shown to dramatically inhibit the growth of tumors in animal models of human prostate cancer.

GenSpera CEO and President, Dr. Craig Dionee, Ph.D., stated, “The company commented that the issuance of this patent further strengthens GenSpera’s intellectual property position for G-115 and its uses for prostate cancer and other prostate pathologies including enlarged prostate.

Dr. Dionne continued, “We are also pleased that the term of this patent will extend into the year 2026, which is a very important feature when we enter discussions with future development partners.”
