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 $0.0920, which was up 8.24 percent. Their volume today was 46,500 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 $0.19, which was up 13.77 percent. Their volume today was 8,000 shares.

Energtek, Inc. (EGTK) is focused on developing and commercializing Adsorbed Natural Gas (ANG) technology. This tecshnology 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

Newport Digital Technologies, Inc. (NPDT) and the Exciting Possibilities of RFID Technology

Newport Digital Technologies Inc. is a leading global digital solutions provider specializing in some of the most quickly emerging technology segments. One of the technology segments that the company is focusing on is Radio Frequency Identification, or RFID.

RFID technologies open up an exciting new world of possibilities for a wide variety of businesses and governments to increase the efficiency of their operations. RFID allows them to securely capture, track and manage their critical data in real-time. The data may range from pallets in a warehouse, to goods in a shopping cart, to data from passports and credit cards and perhaps even from ID cards on students or patients.

A compelling solution for governments to increase the quality and efficiency of their services is also provided by RFID technology. For instance, the security and convenience of citizens can be improved by the use of e-ID initiatives (passports, etc.). RFID is playing an increasingly critical role in enabling governments to increase food safety through better tracking of livestock and agricultural products. Such technologies may also improve the quality of education services and even reduce congestion in major cities through the roll-out of sophisticated ’smart’ transportation management systems.

Of course, RFID technologies can also be used widely in various industrial applications. The technology can play a vital role in reducing the cost of transporting goods across their global supply chain by enabling faster and cheaper means of delivery and more accurate and efficient tracking of assets as they are shipped. Companies can optimize their fleet management, route planning and customer service by increasing the accuracy of deliveries around the globe through RFID technologies.

In manufacturing, RFID enables companies to streamline their production processes. In retail, costs can be reduced by greater visibility of their inventory as it moves across their supply chain. RFID can also provide hands-free identification of the contents in a shopping cart, which allows for instant billing while reducing shoplifting. RFID technology is also used in the healthcare field with applications including patient identification, medical monitoring and managing of medical equipment. In addition, RFID technologies can provide a higher degree of patient safety standards by avoiding errors in the dispensing of drugs.

Newport Digital Technologies is looking to capitalize on all these many varied opportunities in RFID over the months and years to come.

Consorteum Holdings, Inc. (CSRH) Continues To Grow

The last few months have seen a number of developments for Consorteum Holdings Inc., the innovative provider of financial transaction solutions. The company has established new partnerships and modified existing ones, all as part of its continued search for new ways to offer value to clients while generating new opportunities and revenues for Consorteum.

In January, the company increased its ownership position in My Golf Rewards, the popular customer loyalty program for golf courses. The joint venture partnership with Innovative Loyalty Solutions and Score Golf Magazine is expected to grow as golf course owners seek ways to increase customer spending. Courses that were part of the pilot program increased their revenues significantly, confirming the effectiveness of the program. The My Golf Rewards sales team is now aggressively targeting courses throughout North America and internationally for the 2010 season.

Consorteum also recently began offering the cruise ship and private yacht industry a highly cost-effective solution for international payroll and currency settlement, kicked off by the recent launch of Blue Sea Manning’s new payroll and multi-currency program. It’s a huge opportunity, driven by an industry looking for ways to reduce the administrative costs involved in processing crew and supplier payments in multiple currencies. Consorteum is already aiming at several of the large cruise ship and private yacht owners.

In the meantime, Consorteum is continuing to solidify its contractual relationship with NxSystems. The agreement allows Consorteum to grow their operations globally by leveraging NxSystem’s proprietary NxPay multiple currency payment and settlement platform. The development is expected to result in an increased international ability to provide stored value cards, prepaid credit and debit cards, international and domestic payroll cards, and many other solutions for multi-currency environments.
Consorteum, in conjunction with First Nations Financial Services, is also launching a benefits and payroll card program to enable members to receive benefit and payroll funds directly into secured prepaid MasterCards, reducing the need for manual checks.

As if all that weren’t enough, the company has managed to put together a new Board of Advisors, consisting of senior industry and business experts, including retired Chairman and CEO of McDonald’s Japan and Canada, Mr. Pat Donahue.
