The products are sold in China either directly to manufacturers or through distributors in the wire and cable industries and manufacturers in the consumer electronics, white goods, automotive, utility, telecommunications and specialty cable industries.

Pure copper magnet wire is one of the fundamental building blocks in many components in a wide variety of motorized and electrical appliances such as dishwashers, microwaves and automobiles. This is mainly because of its high electrical conductivity. Lihua CCA and recycled scrap copper wire are usually a low-cost substitute for pure copper wire. Consequently, this allows the Company's customers to realize significant cost savings with no loss of efficiency.

The scrap copper then undergoes compacting and pre-treating with numerous chemicals. The metal undergoes smelting and fire refining in a furnace following the pre-treatment phase.

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Simulated Environment Concepts, Inc. (SMEV). Today, Simulated Environment Concepts, Inc. closed trading at $0.03, for no change. Their volume today was 50,000 shares.

CitySide Tickets, Inc. (CIST) Executes Growth Strategy

CitySide Tickets, Inc., headquartered right next to Boston’s historic landmark, Fenway Park, is a one-stop-shop when it comes to obtaining tickets for your favorite event, whether online at the Company’s intuitive, state-of-the-art ecommerce website (CitySideTickets.com, which even allows visitors to sell their own tickets), or via toll free number: 1-800-ANY-SEAT.

All of the biggest events in Music, Sports and Theatre are available, as well as special, hard-to-find events and performances, which means the Company has a clear advantage over larger entities within the market, like the newly formed Live Nation Entertainment – a result of the merger between two of the sector’s biggest players, Live Nation and Ticketmaster.

For a company like CIST, such market consolidation often proves to be a very good thing, because their solid fundamentals – garnered by employing a strategy of organic growth and circumspect acquisition – are enhanced by marketing. In CIST’s case, this all-out national marketing campaign, of 30 second spots over the most-watched cable channels (Bloomberg, CNN, CNBC, MSNBC, FOX News), reached an 8M viewer audience campaign.

Skillfully expanding on the Boston-area operations while bolstering brand identity nationwide has allowed the Company to gain ever more ground in major markets like NY, CA and FL, which are the central objectives of CIST’s long-term strategy, according to Investor Relations Director Michael McCarthy. With a 12% projected annual growth rate for online secondary ticket sales topping an estimated $4.5B by 2012, and primary ticket sales representing roughly $22B in the US (according to an 08 Forrester® study), there is considerable room for CIST to carve out a slice of this enormous pie.

That’s why earlier this year, in February, the move to penetrate European markets through the signing of a letter of intent to acquire 100% ownership of StadiumTickets.com – widely known as a reputable exchange for ticket brokers in the international entertainment and event scene – was made, with the goal of creating a virtual location for brokers to negotiate rates, trade tickets, and check availability online.

CEO of CIST, Michael DeAmicis, described the move to acquire StadiumTickets.com as a chance to expand strategically, connecting with the European market via the brokers and “enabling the company to offer tickets globally for the most popular artists”.

CitySide is poised to become a significant national conduit for ticket buyers and sellers, increasing activity by intelligently seizing a large chunk of this growing global market.

Simulated Environment Concepts (SMEV) Goes Global

Simulated Environmental Concepts Inc. has global aspirations for its flagship product, SpaCapsule®, the revolutionary self-contained water massage and stress-relief system. Its ambitions are made clear by the global oriented functionalities programmed into SpaCapsule’s advanced touch-screen controlled computer system.

Amazingly, the sophisticated controls can be preset at the factory, or by the user, to operate in any language in the world, with no limits. We’re talking about thousands of potential languages.

Sunwin International Neutraceuticals Inc. (SUWN) Gets Sweet Deal from FDA

Sunwin International Neutraceuticals Inc., a leading global provider of high quality stevia extracts, and business partner WILD Flavors Inc., a leading global provider food, beverage and flavor product development, have received official Letters of No Objection from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), giving the companies affirmation of the safety of Sunwin’s Stevia extracts.

The FDA grants Generally Recognized As Safe (GRAS) letters after reviewing a company’s independent research, acknowledging no objection to the safety and data supporting that determination.

Sunwin’s Stevia Extracts entered the U.S. marketplace in 2006. Sunwin Stevia Extracts, as well as the company’s proprietary OnlySweet™ brand tabletop sweetener, are sold in more than 2,500 U.S. retail stores and major online outlets.

The FDA’s decision affects the entire stevia industry, providing many new opportunities for the use of stevia in food and beverage products. The approval specifically benefits Sunwin and WILD Flavors’ business strategy.

“We believe the affirmations by the FDA are a major advancement in the stevia industry, allowing Sunwin and WILD Flavors to provide customers the broadest range of FDA affirmed stevia extract rather than a single product choice,” Mike Ponder, CEO of WILD Flavors stated in the press release. “Together, we can now offer major global food and beverage companies all natural, low-calorie or no-calorie sweetening system solutions that take advantage of WILD’s technical expertise. By using the combination of all natural flavors and carefully selected grades of Sunwin Stevia Extracts, we can create sweetening systems to meet our customers’ specific needs. We offer all Sunwin Stevia Extracts at highly competitive prices to companies seeking these products and are poised to create better products and complete solutions for the consumer.”

Chairman Laiwang Zhang of Sunwin said the GRAS determination will enable the company to pursue more companies wanting to use Sunwin’s extracts in their own produts.

“These FDA letters of no objection to our GRAS claims, follow an extensive review of all of the data for our production processes and the overall quality of our stevia products which are currently sold in many international locations where we are a major stevia supplier. We believe these affirmations provide all consumer packaged goods companies the confidence to now fully embrace the use of multiple Sunwin Stevia Extracts in their products destined for U.S. stores. Through our partnership with WILD Flavors, there are numerous companies already utilizing Sunwin Stevia Extracts in conjunction with WILD’s proprietary sweetening systems. The potential to increase this list of companies expands significantly with full FDA affirmation, including a number of companies presently exploring additional products with Sunwin and WILD Flavors.”
