SmallCap Voice reported earlier on Decor Products International Inc. (DCRD), and we are highlighting the Company as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Trading on the OTC Bulletin Board, Decor Products International is one of the largest manufacturers of decor paper in China. Decor paper is a specialty paper used to finish the surface of wood materials used in the manufacturing of furniture and laminate flooring. Decor, or decoration, paper is one of the fastest growing grades of paper in the world. The production of decor paper requires very specific technological know-how. Decor Products International Inc. has their headquarters in Dongguan, Guangdong Province, China.

Established in 1999, the Company offers a broad product line to their customers. This includes 30g-120g PU paper, polyester paper, melamine paper, wear-proof paper, and 3D wood grain paper. They also offer different kinds of environmentally friendly decorative papers. The Company has taken a leadership role in introducing advanced microcomputer intaglio (gravure) printing production equipment. They can fulfill customer requests by providing tailor-made product design and color matching services.

Earlier this month, Decor Products International Inc. announced the addition of a new production line that they will use to manufacture a new line of laminated board. Laminated board is highly resistant to wear, heat, fire or smoke, and is easy to clean. It is an excellent material for kitchen producers, and related manufacturers. It is also a very easy material for cutting and shaping, with easy color mixing and changing. Consequently, it is also an excellent material for panel furniture producers and furniture designers.

The new production line consists of a new printing machine, paper impregnation machines, and hot press machines. The installation of the new printing machine is complete and the expectation is that it will commence production by the end of this month. It is anticipated that this new laminated board production line will be fully-operational in the second half of 2010 after the installation of the new paper impregnation and hot press machines.

“The addition of this new production line is an important part of our growth strategy,” said, Liu Rui Sheng, President of Decor Products International. “In addition to increasing our production capacity, it will also allow us to capitalize on the strong demand for laminated board.”

PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDLI)

Greenbackers reported recently on PDL BioPharma, Inc. (PDLI), Hot Shot Stocks did earlier, and we choose to highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

PDL BioPharma, Inc. is a biotech company with a patented process to create humanized antibodies. Formerly known as Protein Design Labs, Inc., the Company changed their name to PDL BioPharma, Inc. in 2006. Founded in 1986, PDL has their headquarters in Incline Village, Nevada. They trade on the NASADQ.

PDL BioPharma, Inc. pioneered the humanization of monoclonal antibodies. This enabled the discovery of a new generation of targeted treatments for cancer and immunologic diseases. The Company focuses on maximizing the value of their antibody humanization patents and related assets.

These consist of their Queen and other patents and license agreements with various biotechnology and pharmaceutical companies. They receive royalties on sales of a number of humanized antibody products marketed today based on patents. These patents expire in late 2014.

Since 2004, their revenues have averaged year-over-year growth rates of more than 20 percent.

Polymet Mining Corp. (PLM)

Greenbackers reported previously on Polymet Mining Corp. (PLM), and we highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Polymet Mining Corp. is a mine development company. The Company controls 100 percent of the NorthMet copper-nickel-precious metals ore body through a long-term lease. They also own 100 percent of the Erie Plant, a large processing facility located approximately six miles from the ore body in the established mining district of the Mesabi Range in northeastern Minnesota. Polymet Mining Corp. trades on the NYSE: Amex. They have their headquarters in Hoyt Lakes, Minnesota.

PolyMet received incorporation in British Columbia in 1981 under the name Fleck Resources Ltd. They explored various mineral deposits in North America, including Labrador and Minnesota. Fleck conducted exploratory work in the Duluth Complex and acquired the NorthMet deposit from United States Steel Corporation in 1989.

In June 1998, they decided to focus on mineral development instead of mineral exploration. To reflect the change in corporate policy, they changed their name to PolyMet Mining Corporation. PolyMet acquired the former LTV Steel Mining Company processing plant (Erie Plant) in 2005.

Using open pit mining techniques, PolyMet will mine ore containing copper, nickel, cobalt, platinum, palladium and gold. They will use modern processing techniques to recover these metals, used in products such as electrical wiring, automobile emission controls, and medical applications.

PolyMet is working to produce annually approximately 36,000 tons of copper, and 8,000 tons of nickel-cobalt hydroxide that they will sell for further processing. In addition, they will produce 106,600 troy ounces platinum, palladium, and gold precipitate to sell for further processing.

Yesterday, PolyMet Mining Corp. reported on the status of the environmental review and permitting program at their Erie Plant and NorthMet mine project. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (MDNR) and the US Army Corp of Engineers (USACE) completed the draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) in October 2009. The DEIS considered the project as defined by the 2005 Environmental Assessment Worksheet (EAW) and potential alternatives.

Public review of the DEIS started in early November 2009, concluded on February 3, 2010 and included two public information sessions in mid-December. The intent of the draft EIS process is to use the comments on the DEIS to improve the proposed project that will be documented in the Final EIS. The Final EIS will be subject to public review before being declared "adequate" by the MDNR and receiving a "record of decision" by the USACE. Once the comments have undergone full analysis, the MDNR and the USACE will establish a timetable for completion of the Final EIS and subsequent permitting.

Polymet Mining Corp. (PLM) closed Wednesday's trading session at $2.55 down 13.27 percent. Volume was 1,887,969.

Today we are highlighting Ikanos Communications, Inc. (IKAN), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Their broadband DSL, communications processors, and other offerings power access infrastructure and customer premises equipment for many of the world's leading network equipment manufacturers and telecommunications service providers. Ikanos Communications, Inc. trades on the NASDAQ Global Market and they have their corporate headquarters in Fremont, California.

Genspera, Inc. (GNSZ)

Today we are highlighting Genspera, Inc. (GNSZ), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

GenSpera, Inc. is a development-stage oncology company that trades on the OTC Bulletin Board. They focus on therapeutics that deliver a potent, unique, and patented drug directly to tumors. The Company's technology platform combines a potent cytotoxin (12ADT) with a pro-drug delivery system that activates the drug only within the tumor. Genspera, Inc. has their headquarters in San Antonio, Texas.

Plant-derived 12ADT kills cells independent of their division rate. This makes it effective at killing all fast- and slow-growing cancers and cancer stem cells. The Company's pro-drug platform is the subject of seven issued patents with three additional patents pending.

Early in the first quarter of 2010, GenSpera, Inc. initiated a Phase I cancer trial with their lead drug, G-202. G-202 targets the established blood vessels that nourish solid tumors, destroying the tumor's blood supply. This is significant, as anti-angiogenic drugs primarily only stop the growth of new blood vessels. Upon completion of their Phase I trial, GenSpera expects to initiate multiple Phase II trials for G-202 in several different cancer types.

In late January, GenSpera, Inc. reported that the first patient was treated in the Phase I clinical study of their cancer chemotherapeutic agent, G-202, at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center, Madison, Wisconsin. The trial is also taking place at the Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center at Johns Hopkins, Baltimore, Maryland.

The design of the G-202 Phase I study is to enroll up to thirty patients with cancers that have progressed after treatment with other anti-cancer agents. The primary endpoints of the open-label, dose-escalation study are to determine the safety, tolerability, and pharmacokinetics of the drug. The design also allows the collection of efficacy data.

On February 2, 2010, GenSpera, Inc. announced that their patent application, entitled "Tumor Activated Prodrugs," received issuing by the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) as US Patent 7,635,682. The patent covers the composition and potential uses of G-115, GenSpera's second anti-cancer drug in development.

G-115 is a pro-drug that is selectively activated within prostate tumors by an enzyme, Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA). PSA is active only within prostate tissue and prostate cancer tumors. In preclinical testing, G-115 was shown to inhibit dramatically the growth of tumors in animal models of human prostate cancer. GenSpera, Inc. owns and controls all rights to G-202 and G-115. The Company anticipates a strategic partnership to maximize the value of the drugs as they progress through future clinical trials.

Genspera, Inc. (GNSZ) closed Wednesday's session at $2.14 up 5.94 percent. Volume was 329,545

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 $0.08, which was up 60.00 percent. Their volume today was 42,449 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

The demonstration system will also include Newport’s eLearning platform, demonstrating high-speed online eLearning access capabilities.

The company believes that WiMax is the next-generation wireless technology to WiFi. It will allow for up to a 30 mile range for internet connectivity and throughputs to 40 Mbps. Newport Digital Technologies is working in conjunction with leading Taiwan-based research & development technology incubators – the Institute for Information Industry and the Industrial Technology Research Institute – to roll-out this WiMax demonstration system with eLearning application.

eDoorways Corp. (EDWY) Signs Deal to Bring 20 Million Online Users to Platform

eDoorways Corp. announced today that it has signed an Agreement with Ibero American Science and Technology Education Consortium (ISTEC) to gain access to approximately 20 million online users as well as other strategic introductions globally.

“This deal truly gives eDoorways immediate access to online users in a big way,” stated Mr. Gary Kimmons, Chairman & CEO of the eDoorways Corporation. “With this relationship, we expect to significantly increase our visibility as we gain an international user base as well as see our initial revenues in the second quarter become dramatically greater than anticipated. With the high expectation for our PowerKeys, now to be purchased and used by a much larger audience, it is conceivable that by late in the 2nd quarter, we could possibly begin generating a couple of million dollars monthly from this relationship alone. That would be the power of ISTEC and this marriage.”

Founded in 1990 as a spinoff of University of New Mexico (UNM), ISTEC is now one of the largest non-profit consortia in the Americas dedicated to improving the quality of life through education throughout Latin America, Spain and Portugal. Leveraging the strength of its faculty and staff members, ISTEC members develop content in science, technology, engineering, math, R&D and entrepreneurship for the estimated 20 million university student population throughout Latin America and other parts of the world.

Those close to the deal believe that eDoorways could capture at least 5% of the 20 million student population within 12 months, effectively beginning in the second quarter. Attaining this feat would result in 1 million additional users not factored into any of the company’s original revenue models.

The agreement between the two groups called for eDoorways to become a member of the consortia, which has been effectuated. The company anticipates providing a comprehensive web-based service offering featuring intelligent performance support for such lifestyle areas as problem solving, learning, innovation and creativity, and leisure/entertainment to ISTEC members and affiliates. eDoorways will also interface and coordinate with ISTEC to insure the operations are consistent with pre-determined ISTEC requirements and needs. Additionally, the company will provide ISTEC with client maintenance and support as well as offer customer care, client billing and financial management of the operations.

ISTEC on the other hand will be responsible for providing and managing prospect introductions. The organization will help eDoorways secure new clients and advise on client activity while providing assistance in the client operating areas. ISTEC will also assist eDoorways with securing the necessary rights/authorizations for connectivity/services to ISTEC client facilities, as necessary.

Dr. Ramiro Jordan commented, “We have always seen eDoorways as a powerful way to utilize the Internet in pursuit of our objectives. It was just a matter of time as we needed to be confident that the developing company could accomplish its own objectives and stay the course. Today, in our opinion, eDoorways has done so and is continuing to propel itself forward. We look for alliances with not only successful organizations, but those organizations demonstrating the will and tenacity to strive for something extraordinary. eDoorways is that company, and we wish to be on the ground floor of their vision. The platform they offer uses social networking in two areas of great interest to ISTEC and we wish to make these products and service offerings available to our growing international concern in a financially benefiting way.”

Under the Strategic Alliance Agreement, both eDoorways and ISTEC will participate in co-marketing and co-branding eDoorways’ products and services. Although ISTEC is interested in supporting the entire eDoorways platform suite of products and services, the initial emphasis will be placed on eDoorways’ first service offering, “SOLVE.” According to the press release, ISTEC will also be very active in the marketing and branding of the second much-anticipated doorway “LEARN,” which is expected to have its first demonstrable working concept version by the end of the first quarter.

In the press release, eDoorways also told investors of its upcoming event in March where it is expected to make a splash on a major technology stage. The latest version of the platform, v2.0, is expected out this week and v2.5 (ETA — end of 1st QT) will only add to the company’s ability to potentially compete with major technology firms while receiving global acceptance due to ISTEC’s reach to a captive audience of millions worldwide.
