(TAXS), Wall Street Greek, SmallCap Voice, Bold Stocks did earlier, and we highlight the Company as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

The tax resolution services they offer include tax settlements, IRS audit defense, levy, lien assistance, and help with regaining compliance with the IRS. TaxMasters, Inc. has their headquarters in Houston, Texas.  

TaxMasters, Inc. is a publicly traded company which lists on the OTC Bulletin Board. On August 4, 2009, a closing took place in which Crown Partners, Inc. acquired 100 percent ownership of TaxMasters, Inc. This was through the issuance of shares of their common stock and preferred stock to Patrick R. Cox, TaxMasters' sole shareholder at the time of closing. Patrick Cox founded Tax Masters in 2001.

TaxMasters grew according to an aggressive and steady growth plan from 2001 to 2008.  This took the Company from six employees to more than 200 employees. Their corporate growth is due in part to the national advertising campaigns that TaxMasters continues to run. It is also a direct result of the Company negotiating favorable outcomes for clients with IRS problems.

He continues to work to grow the Company into a dominant premier IRS tax resolution firm in the United States. The Company's commitment is to service quality and client satisfaction.

CodecSys software uses a patented, multi-codec approach that automatically selects the most appropriate specialized codec for a video sequence or frame by analyzing the video stream. Its design is to handle particular types of high-bandwidth video frames or streams, especially fast-motion sequences. These specialized codecs provide a continuous stream with no pixelation or blocking that usually causes blurriness or lower quality image.

CodecSys software is an upgradable solution. The CodecSys video encoders are upgradeable as industry standards and requirements evolve, creating a more efficient, streamlined system that doesn’t require the traditional replacement cycles.

Last week, Broadcast International, Inc. and Halfpipe Media AB of Stockholm, Sweden, jointly announced that Halfpipe Media has selected CodecSys™ as their video encoding and optimization solution to power the Halfpipe Media services portal. The companies entered into an agreement that calls for Halfpipe to license the CodecSys™ software framework from Broadcast International, Inc. in a multiyear deal.

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 $0.0820, which was up 2.50 percent. Their volume today was 2,000 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

NetSol Technologies, Inc. (NTWK) Stands Above The Crowd

There was a day when all a business needed to do in order to enter the computer age was buy an IBM computer and a hire a local programmer to grind out a handful of simple custom programs. Once the accounting and inventory clerks were taught how to use it, a business was on its way.

Today, with the exponential growth of IT technology, it has become increasingly unrealistic for individual businesses, both small and large, to develop and manage the countless aspects of a modern IT operation by themselves. There are simply too many variables and too many decisions for most companies to successfully deal with. The resulting worldwide need for IT support, help that is both trusted and competent, has made NetSol Technologies Inc. one of the most successful enterprise IT management services in the world.

Just choosing a support service is challenging enough for most businesses. There is an endless line of IT consulting firms that are quick to claim they can do whatever needs to be done, and for less money than the next guy. Businesses often discover their limitations and shortcomings only after they’ve been hired. That’s why NetSol has taken remarkable steps to demonstrate clearly that it is not part of that crowd. Specifically, they’re one of the only companies in the entire world to carry a Software Engineering Institute (SEI) CMMI Maturity Level 5 rating for process design, along with ISO 9001 and 27001 certifications, offering a level of trust that few can even come close to.

But NetSol offers a lot more than trust. It has a long history of proven competency and front-to-back services, ensuring that there will be no loose ends. In addition, the company is technologically unbiased, able to tap the product and service components that best meet client requirements.

Solutions include:
• Acceptance Testing Services and Management
• Application Lifecycle Management
• Application Support and Maintenance
• Content Management Systems
• Custom Application Development
• Data Warehousing and Disaster Recovery
• Database Administration
• Development Infrastructure and Environment
• Enterprise Asset Management
• Enterprise Security Management
• Information and Records Management
• Managed Hosting
• Network Infrastructure and Design
• Online Libraries
• Portals
• Process Improvement
• Product and Process Quality Assurance
• RAID Services
• Systems Integration
• Telecommunications Infrastructure and Design
• Virtualization
• Web Services
All of this is why NetSol is still strongly in the game, while the economy has taken out so many others.

Energtek, Inc.’s (EGTK) Adsorbed Natural Gas Technology has All the Answers

Energtek Inc. is a world leader in the development and commercialization of ‘adsorbed natural gas’ technology. The company has developed breakthrough natural technology which efficiently enables the increased use of natural gas in vehicle and industrial markets.

What is the company’s adsorbed natural gas technology about? Adsorption is the adhesion of molecules of liquids, gases and dissolved substances to the surface of a solid. The ability of a solid to adsorb depends on the chemical makeup of the solid and its physical structure. Activated charcoal, for example, has a very large surface area because of its porous nature. This gives it the ability to absorb large quantities of natural gas.

This characteristic of activated charcoal is useful in storing natural gas. For example, in a conventional high-pressure storage tank gas is forced into the tank under pressure. The greater the pressure, the greater the volume of gas stored in the tank. The maximum pressure, and therefore the volume of gas held in the tank, is limited by the physical properties of the tank and its valve. The addition of a microporous material into the tank, such as activated charcoal, makes it possible to do one of two things: 1) either store a larger volume of natural gas in the same container at the same pressure, or 2) store the same volume of natural gas in the container at a lower pressure.

Until now the commercialization of adsorbed natural gas technology has been hindered by several unsolved technological problems. The main challenges of adsorbed natural gas storage products development include the following:
• Sufficient volumetric storage ability that will be competitive with existing natural gas storage methods on the market
• Efficient gas filling and release from adsorbed natural gas tank for automotive applications, requiring control of thermodynamic processes
• Absorbed natural gas fueling system cost that will be competitive with the cost of current fueling systems

Energtek has carried out a pioneering research and development venture resulting in a solution to some of the key problems of the future gas and transportation industries.

WikiLoan, Inc., pioneers of the revolutionary new website Wikiloan.com, a peer-to-peer lending facility that is streamlined for ease of use and security and structured around the social networking paradigm we’ve all come to know and love so well, is poised to explode due to its cutting-edge profile and extenuating market factors.

Consumer attitudes towards online lending in response to the global credit crunch have led to straitened lending protocols and high interest rates, further complicated by constrictive borrowing requirements, making the process of loan acquisition nightmarish to a huge chunk of the market.

This problem drastically affects micro-loan situations for lenders with credit challenges seeking loans under $25k, making this market critically under-served at this time, as demand booms such architectures as that which WikiLoan provides will be there to capitalize on the organic private lending business.

WikiLoan users are able to cut out the “middle man” and set their own conditions, all in a comfortable and intuitive online environment that allows people to connect directly and safely to manage the loan process through to completion more efficiently and with less micromanagement or footwork.

By providing prospective lenders and borrowers with a sophisticated suite of automated and configurable tools that allow them to circumvent the normally laborious process of traditional commercial lending, and set rates that make sense to both parties involved, WikiLoan’s powerful infrastructure manages the loan documentation, repayment scheduling, promissory notes, automated reminders, and online repayment/account access.

Users can quickly sign up for free and get started. Borrowers go through a rudimentary process to create and post their loan for $1k-25k, setting a rate they want to pay, and the website performs the calculations to generate the borrower’s WikiScore, after which time the borrower can invite friends to view the listing. Borrowers pay $35 for loan documentation and $15 for the credit score, while lenders pay a tiny 1% administrative fee based on the adjusted outstanding principle.
This is a comfortable, efficient and secure environment in which to manage lending and borrowing, unlike the archaic and inaccessible traditional methods; a way of doing business whose time has come. Once loan fulfillment is acquired, WikiLoan handles the promissory note, issues proofs to both parties, and handles ongoing notification and online repayment.

This sort of peer-to-peer lending architecture represents the evolution of several trends in what is one of financial services’ fastest growing sectors, and clearly will not only have staying power for the foreseeable future, but has the potential to change the way micro-lending is done and create huge returns for the Company’s investors.
