Micro Identification Technologies Inc. (MMTC)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight Micro Identification Technologies Inc. (MMTC) Today Micro Identification Technologies Inc. closed trading at $0.0350, for no change. Their volume today was 171,000 shares.

Micro Identification Technologies Inc. (MMTC) is focused on becoming a global leader in developing, supporting and marketing rapid systems and processes that detect and identify microbial organisms. For several years the company has been working on the development of a breakthrough, laser-based microbial identification technology. This technology has been designed to be extremely fast and easy to use while not relying on conventional chemical or biological processing, fluorescent tags, gas chromatography or DNA analysis.

The system works by measuring scattered light intensity as individual microbes pass through a laser beam. The intensity pattern of the scattered light is a direct consequence of the size, shape and external and internal optical characteristics of the microbe. By measuring scattered light at specific angles, MIT’s system detects and differentiates objects the size of bacteria, protozoa, yeasts and molds.

The company’s technology offers significant advantages over today’s methods of microbial detection, including lower cost, rapid results, easier use and the ability to test for multiple bacteria in one process. The system is statistically based and includes a unique MIT Microbe Library of pre-measured light scattering identifiers - or fingerprints - derived from the measurements of tens of thousands of individual microbes for each species and subspecies to be detected.

MIT’s technology has the potential to revolutionize the $5 billion rapid microbial test market by annually saving thousands of lives and tens of millions of dollars. Since 1998, the industry has had an annual expansion of 9.2 percent - with growth projections for 30 percent annually. MIT is well positioned with its cutting-edge microbial technology as demand continues to soar as a result of major health, safety and homeland security issues. Disclaimer

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 $0.13, for no change. Their volume today was 13,500 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

American Petro-Hunter, Inc., with current production at two sites in Kansas (Poston Project in Trego County, and Rooney Project in Ford County) – and the tenacity of a mole with a nose for oil – has its sights squarely focused on closing the gap within a year to becoming a 1000 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) producer, and toward this end has announced today further sector penetration with the acquisition of a 25% working interest in an Oklahoma-based prospect (“the Prospect”).

With a potential initial production well output rate of 150 barrels per day (BDP), and a sustainable multi-well (40-acre spacing) site capacity, spirits are high moving forward toward test well drilling on this Prospect located in northern OK, which should produce high-gravity light oil above 3800. Site prep work and road construction are proceeding apace, with an imminent (days) spud date (the day when drilling begins), and personnel just waiting for the rig to arrive.

Backed by strong Chinese demand, as well as other emerging markets, oil keeps trending upwards, and the declining dollar has made the crude market sweeter than ever, silencing many who have expressed concerns over relatively high supply levels.

As China sets records for oil importation (just last month again nearing records for oil consumption), infrastructural development continues unabated to sustain and drive this demand spike, creating a huge export market for domestic producers like AAPH.

The Company is dedicated to achieving laser-like focus on the goals it sets, and is firmly committed to further exploration and production growth within the industry, confident that domestic oil and gas production can provide “essential near-term” stabilization which will drive an American-made economic recovery and re-invigorate our production economy, leading to solidity within the financial system.
