In addition, HotOTC.com, Stock Source, StockEgg.com, Cool Penny Stocks, Penny Invest, Top Best Pennystocks, Monster Stock Alerts, and OTC Advisors reported on the Company, and we highlight them as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Wild Brush Energy Inc. is a diversified energy company. Trading on the Pink Sheets, their corporate goal is to identify and develop clean air energy producing alternatives. They are currently exploring green energy producing opportunities within North America and abroad. ild Brush Energy, Inc. has their headquarters in Seattle, Washington.

The green energy producing opportunities the Company is exploring include large scale Commercial Wind Farms, Solar Energy Paneling prospects, and Small Scale Hydro Electric projects. Wild Brush Energy will primarily develop, build and finance different projects via their own expertise and that of their various future partners. The Company’s potential acquisition targets will depend on an analysis of the project’s current or potential cash flow in relation to current power purchase agreements, government support, infrastructure and technical expertise.

Wild Brush Energy, Inc.’s goal is to continually expand their yearly megawatt output of green energy derived electricity. All three renewable energy divisions of Wild Brush Energy will work in concert with one another where technical expertise overlaps, and separately as required. The three divisions of Wild Brush Energy are Solar Energy, Wind Energy, and Hydroelectric Energy.

The Wild Brush Solar Strategy involves using the latest manufacturing facilities and processing methods, which uses all types of silicon in order to reduce price. The Company will use robotics in the process, scale the production of silicon, and select only the highest quality silicon for use in production. The Company also intends on exploiting the latest techniques in cutting and polishing wafers.

For Wind Energy, Wild Brush Wind Energy will build and manage wind parks. They will also provide services including site selection, land rights acquisition, permit acquisition, environmental commodities, and environmental permitting; in addition to construction, power sales agreements, marketing, project financing, and engineering, design and procurement.

The Company’s core Hydroelectric Strategy is to locate and acquire economic and environmentally favorable hydro turbine sites for the deployment of Vertical Axis Hydro Turbine (VAHT) units. They will support the sale of turbines with turnkey installation and maintenance services providing developers with an end-to-end solution. The VAHT is a cross flow turbine. The direction of rotation is perpendicular to the direction of the flow of water. The technology captures up to 40 percent of the energy in moving water and with far less environmental impact than traditional hydroelectric technology.

Yesterday, Wild Brush Energy announced that they and Energoconsult Ltd. established a cooperative agreement. This agreement is towards the future development of a commercial scale Wind Farm. Energoconsult’s signing is essential for the assessment of crucial wind measurement data, site planning and analysis forecasts vital for maximum wind farm productivity. The Wild Brush Energy Wind Project in planning would optimally be around 120Mw in size. It would cost an estimated $270 million in development expenditures.

The Wind Park would supply upwards of 290,000 Mw of electricity yearly, upon completion. This is enough green energy to supply more than 40,000 homes with electricity. It will also offset close to 260,000 tons of Greenhouse gases.

Mercer International Inc. conducts their pulp operations through three subsidiaries consisting of large-scale, modern pulp mills. One is in British Columbia's interior, and two are in eastern Germany.

Mercer's core purpose is as a provider of fiber, and renewable energy and chemicals, from sustainable sources for essential human needs. In Germany where they operate their two mills, they are the sole kraft pulp producer. The Company serves the largest pulp import market in Europe.

They focus on premium-grade kraft pulp that generally commands the highest price. Mercer has large, modern and efficient production facilities and the ability to produce energy. Mercer's first mill, Rosenthal, is near Blankenstein and produces approximately 330,000 ADMTs annually. Stendal is near the town of Stendal, about 300 kilometers north of their Rosenthal mill.

Headquartered in Woodinville, Washington, DRS Inc.'s primary business is drywall recycling. All of the Company's services incorporate GeoFriendly solutions where they work to recycle as much waste as possible. They track all aspects of a job and issue monthly reports to the coordinator on site. DRS Inc. trades on the OTC Bulletin Board.

Daniel Mendes and Daniel Guimont started DRS Inc. and the Company went public in November of 2006. They worked to find a way to reduce the amount of construction debris undergoing dumping into the nation's landfills. Their extensive industry knowledge helped them develop innovative ways to scrap, collect, and recycle construction debris and drywall materials. Their corporate goal is to expand DRS Inc. so it becomes one of the largest drywall recycling companies in the U.S. and a leader in the recycling community.

The Company's service involves the physical removal of excess drywall debris from construction job sites, demolition sites, remodels and residential homes. DRS dispatches trained drywall scrappers to retrieve the materials from the job site, after the drywall installers have cut and installed the product. Their fleet of trucks then transports the debris to one of their recycling centers for processing.  However, customers also have the option of dropping off the materials themselves.

DRS Inc.'s processing facilities recycle 100 percent of the materials that they end up receiving. The Company ships the recycled gypsum and paper products to manufacturing and agricultural companies throughout the Northwest.  DRS Inc. has recycling facilities in Bremerton, Maltby, Milton, Richland, Ridgefield, Samish and Sunnyside, Washington and Portland, Oregon.

Most of the gypsum that DRS Inc. recycles finds use in the building industry. This is for the production of new drywall. An increasing proportion is now finding use in agriculture and horticulture. Gypsum is a 'clean green' soil conditioner and finds use as an excellent calcium and sulphur fertilizer. Therefore, gypsum has many applications in the Agricultural and Soil Management fields. The paper the Company recycles from drywall sheets is regenerated into recycled paper that can be used in a broad spectrum of paper products.

DRS Inc. (DRSX) closed today's session at $0.75 up 36.36 percent. Volume was 69,900.

CombinatoRx, Incorporated (CRXX)

Stock Stars, Greenbackers, Penny Invest, StockEgg.com, HotOTC.com, Stock Rich, Cool Penny Stocks, Stockpalooza, Small Cap Network, OTCReporter.com, and TooNiceStocks.com reported recently on CombinatoRx, Incorporated (CRXX). Earlier, OTC Picks, Momentum Traders, Wall Street News Alert, Stealth Stocks, Microcap Voice, Today's Financial News, and Round Up the Bulls reported on the Company, and we are as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, CombinatoRx, Incorporated is pioneering the new field of synergistic combination pharmaceuticals. The Company creates product candidates with novel mechanisms of action striking at the biological complexities of human disease. CombinatoRx, Incorporated trades on the NASDAQ Global Market.

CombinatoRx creates synergistic combination drug candidates that simultaneously attack disease on multiple fronts. This approach goes beyond the separate mechanisms of the individual drug components by treating diseases through entirely new mechanisms of action enabled by the synergies of the Company's combinations.

The Company is working from the scientific understanding that most diseases affect the body via multiple pathways. The activity of a therapeutic compound against one pathway can be insufficiently effective. This is because biological systems often compensate by using a secondary pathway. The Company's combination drug candidates, through targeting multiple pathways, create synergistic therapeutic effects, which could result in improved treatment for many diseases.

CombinatoRx, Incorporated began in 2000, based on the then theoretical idea that selective action through synergy between two drugs could create fundamentally better medicines. That same year they invented and built a working prototype of combination High Throughput Screening (cHTS™) drug discovery technology.

The CombinatoRx drug discovery engine (cHTS™) evaluates the potential of possible drug combinations and elucidates new mechanisms to treat diseases. To identify and analyze potentially valuable combination effects, cHTS™ generates a dose matrix for each chemical combination capturing the combined activity of two compounds over a wide spectrum of single agent concentrations. cHTS™ can generate hundreds of thousands of data points daily to efficiently screen in a dose matrix format.

On March 2, 2010, CombinatoRx, Incorporated reported that the Food and Drug Administration approved the sale of CombinatoRx's extended-release pain drug Exalgo. CombinatoRx developed the drug, and Covidien PLC is responsible for marketing, sales, and regulatory filings after approval. Covidien will pay CombinatoRx $40 million because of the FDA ruling, and CombinatoRx will get royalty payments on sales of Exalgo. The intention of Exalgo is to treat moderate to severe pain in patients who require treatment with opioid painkillers for an extended period.

CombinatoRx, Incorporated (CRXX) closed Thursday's trading session at $1.22 for no change. Volume was 1,151,139.

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 7.69 percent. Their volume today was 29,125 shares.  

National Automation Services, Inc. (NASV) announced that on March 8, 2010, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) notified NAS that the SEC has completed their limited review of, and that the SEC has no further comments at this time on, NAS' Form 10 Registration Statement, which became effective on October 6, 2009.

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

Fund.com, Inc. (FNDM) Capitalizing on Rapidly Growing ETF Market in More Ways than One

Fund.com wants to do something that nobody else is doing. It wants to be for the fund industry what Bankrate.com is for banking, what Lendingtree.com is for the mortgage sector, and what CreditCards.com is for credit cards. Specifically, it wants to be the nation’s vertically-focused online investor resource for the fund investor.

It’s a huge and underserved market. Each year, hundreds of billions of dollars flow into investment funds of all kinds. The U.S. mutual fund industry is now in the trillions of dollars, accounting for nearly half of the global mutual fund total. Funds obviously have a broad appeal to investors, but third party distribution of funds has largely been a function of financial advisors, dependent on in-person client meetings and other inefficient marketing methods. Fund.com taps into the continued growing popularity of the Internet as a preferred source of vertical marketplace information. The increasing complexity of investment instruments is expected to feed demand for financial information. By delivering the kind of comprehensiveness, relevance, and efficiency not otherwise available, Fund.com is already becoming the one place to go for fund investor information.

To ensure that they get the job done, the company has focused on four key elements to keep investors (and fund companies) coming back.
• Bringing together a wide range of fund related content
• Ease of use and clarity of communication
• Unbiased information to build solid investor trust
• Relevant, accessible, and in-depth educational content

The site provides information and services relating to mutual funds, hedge funds, money market funds, exchange traded funds, closed-end funds, commodity funds, and various other pooled investments. The company also researches and develops asset management products, including fund investment indexes and related index-linked investment products, licensing this intellectual property through its subsidiary Fund.com Managed Products Inc. In addition, the company plans to acquire asset managers, hedge funds, mutual funds, ETF issuers, investment product developers, and fund service providers, all through its other subsidiary Fund.com Capital Inc.

Fund.com is rapidly staking its claim as the resource focal point for all fund investors, and as a prime source of targeted traffic for the fund industry.

Universal Detection Technology (UNDT) Sophisticated Products Provide Better Protection for First Responders and the Citizens they Rescue

Universal Detection Technology, developers of air monitoring devices, bioterrorism detection devices and other early-warning monitoring systems, recently issued a press release addressing the growing concern to immunize first responders in the case of anthrax exposure. This question was brought forth at the annual EMS Today Conference in Baltimore. The conference was held over March 1 through March 5.

Jacques Tizabi, CEO of Universal Detection Technology was quoted as saying, “Immunizing first responders goes hand-in-hand with giving them the necessary tools and training to rapidly detect on-site the presence of anthrax or other deadly bioagents and respond appropriately”. Universal Detection Technologies has developed products that accurately detect the presence of anthrax spores and other deadly bioagents in as little as 3 minutes, helping to ensure safety and proper treatment to medical responders in a timely manner. Any delays in detection and appropriate initiation of chemoprophylaxis can result in many more deaths and millions of dollars in treatments.

UNDT now has 5 different detection kits that are being used throughout the United States by first responders and private industries. The US Department of Defense and the United Kingdom military have run tests on these kits and found that they do not produce false positives or display cross-reactivity with near-neighbor species.

Neah Power Systems, Inc. (NPWZ) Rated Outperform by Zacks, Given $1.75 Target

Neah Power Systems, Inc., leading developer of a micro fuel cell system based on a proprietary silicon design which yields extraordinary power output from such a small form factor, announced today that Zacks Investment Research CFA Richard Wolfe has upgraded the Company’s rating to that of Outperform and set a 12-month price target of $1.75.

As a development-stage company, NPWZ looks to use its direct-methanol fuel cell technology, manufacturing capacity, and the expertise of its staff to clear the accumulated deficit of $51M, against which the Company has already started to apply initial bookings from NPWZ’s solar air conditioning subsidiary, which is employing the fuel cells.

Wolfe spoke of the demonstrated ability of the Company to fulfill contractual engagements, citing past successes, and detailed some of the finer points of the new fuel cell technology, pointing out that the “porous, silicon-wafer design and the ability to operate in anaerobic environments” indicated that NPWZ was a potential sleeper hit.

CEO of NPWZ Chris D’Couto noted the status of Zacks as one of the world’s premier firms, and pointed out the billions spent annually by such stock researchers as evidence that “these investment experts know something special that may be indicative of the future direction of stock prices”.

With a patented aerobic/anaerobic cell design ready to meet the demands of a booming solar industry, as well as finding multiple secondary applications, NPWZ is also developing an array of energy storage and generation solutions incorporating the high power density fuel cells.

Founder and CTO of NPWZ Leroy Ohlsen, along with co-founder Michael Fabian, have been hard at work since 1999 to create a more robust and long-lasting fuel cell system design which could eventually see light in such products as notebooks, PC’s and other power-hungry devices, including military radios and the like.

The variety of suitable applications and the clean energy profile of the technology is sure to produce continued buzz and contracts for manufacture, allowing the company to leverage its silicon industry-derived manufacturing technology to create a wonderful energy system that will drive shareholder value to new levels.

Smartlinx Inc. (SMLK) Introduces SmartVM to the Market

Smartlinx, Inc. announced earlier this week the launch of “SmartVM”. SmartVM is an e-governance application to be used with biometric systems (automated recognition systems based on physical or behavioral characteristics) and will incorporate Fujitsu’s cutting-edge Palm Vein Authentication Technology. The SmartVM application will be used in a device called “Palm Secure” in a pilot voting program for the Forest Department of the Government of Andhra Pradesh, India.

The Palm Secure is a scanning device that reads the unique vein pattern of a person’s palm as a mode of identity verification. The scanner takes advantage of the rhemoglobin’s characteristic to absorb near -infrared light as it is forced through the person’s hand. This process can be completed at a distance of 4 to 6 centimeters. A user simply places a hand on the screen, and the Palm Secure will either confirm authenticity or alert a checker as to fraudulent or unauthorized behavior.

Sanjay Srivastava, Business Head (PalmSecure) at Fujitsu’s India, was cited as saying, “We are very glad and proud of the futuristic innovation of SmartVM. This has expanded the scope of solutions which use our PalmSecure technology and taken it to the next level. We are sure this would fill the gaps currently being experienced in the budding e-governance measures. We can imagine the several possible solutions that SmartVM can deliver, withstanding any terrain or environmental conditions and still continue to perform. We are very happy to add SmartVM solution in the list of solutions prepared Globally using our PalmSecure technology.”

Smartlinx, through its wholly owned subsidiary in India, Smarlinx VOIP Networks Private Limited, provides IT infrastructure management and monitoring solutions for businesses as well as online educational and VOIP services.
