The QualityStocks Daily

Jedediah Resources Corp. (JEDE)

Today we are highlighting Jedediah Resources Corp. (JEDE), here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Jedediah Resources Corp. is an exploration stage company that trades on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company's principal activity is to explore and develop mineral properties. Incorporated on July 21, 2008, under the laws of the state of Nevada, they hold an option to acquire an 85 percent interest in the Bragg claim, located in the Omineca district of central British Columbia, Canada.

Jedediah Resources Corp.'s business plan is to proceed with the exploration of the Bragg claim. This is to determine whether there are commercially exploitable reserves of gold or other metals on the claim. The Company intends to proceed with the exploration program as recommended by their consulting geologist.

Phase I of their exploration program consisted of on-site surface reconnaissance, mapping, sampling, and geochemical analyses. The initial estimate was that this phase of the program would cost approximately $13,050. The Company ultimately spent $16,157 (CDN$19,207) in exploration expenses to complete Phase I of the program, which was incurred in the year ended September 30, 2009.

The fieldwork of this phase is complete and Jedediah Resources Corp. has received the Geological Summary Report. This Report is now under consideration by the Company's Board of Directors. Now that they have this Geological Summary Report, their Board of Directors, in consultation with their consulting geologist, will assess whether to proceed with additional mineral exploration programs.

In making their decision to proceed with a further exploration, the Company will make an assessment as to whether the results of the initial program are sufficiently positive to enable them to proceed. This assessment will include an evaluation of Jedediah Resources Corp.'s cash reserves after the completion of the initial exploration, the price of minerals, and the market for the financing of mineral exploration projects at the time of their assessment.

Phase II for the Company would entail permits, further sampling and geochemical analyses based on the outcome of the Phase I exploration program. The budget for Phase III of Jedediah Resources Corp.'s exploration program is tentative in nature, as the actual exploration program to be undertaken will depend upon the outcomes of the Phase I and Phase II exploration programs. Phase III of the Company's exploration program will consist of further sampling and assaying, and the diamond drilling and drill core sampling of three, 770 foot holes.

Jedediah Resources Corp. (JEDE) closed Thursday's trading session at $0.25 up 63.40 percent. Volume was 100,000.

GreenShift Corporation (GERS)

Ceocast News reported this week on GreenShift Corporation (GERS), OTC Picks, Stock Hot Tips, Penny Invest, Otcstockexchange.com, Penny Performers, Standout Stocks, HotOTC.com, and Cool Penny Stocks reported earlier, and we highlight the Company, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

GreenShift Corporation develops and commercializes clean technologies that facilitate the efficient use of natural resources. The Company bases their revenue model on the use of their proprietary technologies to become a leading producer of biomass-derived products. They seek to do this at reduced cost and risk by extracting and refining raw materials that other producers cannot access or process. Headquartered in New York, New York, the Company also has an engineering office in Alpharetta, Georgia. They trade on the OTC Bulletin Board.

GreenShift Corporation develops and commercializes clean technologies that create valuable opportunities for enterprises to use natural resources more efficiently and to be more profitable.
They help reduce the inefficiencies in existing production processes by integrating new process technologies into an enterprise's operations to grow profits by decreasing raw material needs, enabling co-product reuse, and by reducing the generation of wastes and emissions. These incremental shifts forward are at the core of their market offerings.

In Corn Oil Extraction, the Company finances, builds, and integrates their corn oil extraction technologies into an enterprises ethanol production facility. They then purchase the extracted oil for a price indexed to the price of diesel fuel. This allows an enterprise to preserve capital as they tap into the latent value of the crude corn oil locked in their distillers' grains to increase margins, stimulate cash flows, and defray some of the risks presented by the corn and ethanol commodity markets.

In biomass homogenization, GreenShift's patented Tornado Generator™ is a technology that accelerates compressed air to supersonic speeds to almost instantly grind, flash desiccate, atomize, and homogenize solids and liquids into micron-sized powders. This technology is a way to reduce feedstock variability and improve consistency in the thermal, chemical, or enzymatic processing of qualified feedstocks

GreenShift has developed technology to extract fats and oils out of the co-products and wastes of targeted agriproducts facilities. For the Company's C02 Bioreactor initiative, their patented and patent-pending bioreactor process uses thermophillic cyanobacteria to consume carbon dioxide emissions. The organisms use the available carbon dioxide in the emissions and water to grow and give off oxygen and water vapor. The organisms also absorb nitrogen oxide and sulfur dioxide. Once the organisms grow to maturity, they fall to the bottom of GreenShift's bioreactor. Here, they undergo harvesting for extraction and conversion into value added carbon neutral products.

On April 29, 2010, GreenShift Corporation announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (PTO) accepted one of GreenShift's pending corn oil extraction patent applications into the PTO's Green Technology Pilot Program for accelerated review. The design of the new program is to accelerate the development and deployment of green technology, create green jobs, and promote U.S. competitiveness.

GreenShift Corporation (GERS) closed Thursday's trading session at $0.0002 up 100.00 percent. Volume was 862,199,600.

General Environmental Management, Inc. (GEVI) Introduces Energy Market to New Stimulation Process

General Environmental Management announced this afternoon that it has signed an exclusive marketing agreement with Earthsonics for down hole stimulation of oil and gas production using a combination of PetroMax and sonic stimulation.

“This agreement represents a significant stride forward in the company’s effort to bring new technology to the energy market,” stated GEM’s CEO, Timothy J. Koziol. “Furthermore, it extends our service to the oil and gas industry to encompass the whole production process from well site to waste disposal.”

Doug Edwards, GEM’s Chief Strategy Officer, explained the process, “Sonic stimulation is a process that takes low frequency sound energy and combines it with our PetroMax solution to increase the flow rate from existing production wells.”

“Sonication stimulates the PetroMax chemical and process to detach hydrocarbon molecules from the depth of the earth, enabling them to be recovered by well pumps. The technology borrows from advances made by the US Navy to make reality from what had previously been only hoped for,” continued Edwards.

“Our first commercial applications will take place this month in Illinois and then in Texas. We also have a California well site that will be stimulated this summer,” added Edwards.

GEM will require a monthly lease rate for the sonication equipment and a fee for the PetroMax solution or a sharing in the increased production revenue. Tests supervised by the Department of Energy show that the Earthsonics process can stimulate production by up to 25% per well.
According to the press release, the marketing agreement gives GEM exclusive rights to use the sonication process in California and non-exclusive rights throughout the United States.

“This is the first commercial application combining these new technologies,” commented Koziol. “If it performs as hoped, GEM will be at the forefront in using new technology in the oil and gas exploration industry.”

Earlier this year, GEM acquired marketing rights to PetroMax, a patented series of water-based chemicals and various application processes that are combined to shear hydrocarbons from surfaces to which they are tightly attached. PetroMax is now used for oil tank clean outs through GEM’s Santa Paula facility, Southern California Waste Water.

“I have witnessed the thickest of oily sludge in tank bottoms become instantly fluidized,” said Edwards. “We are very excited at the prospect that we will be able to replicate down hole what we are accomplishing today in tank bottom cleanouts.”

DG FastChannel® Inc., the nation’s leading provider of digital media services to the advertising industry, with the largest network designed specifically for spot distribution, has reported record financial results for the first quarter ending March 31, 2010.

Consolidated revenue for the first quarter 2010 increased 31% to $54.2 million, compared to $41.4 million for the same quarter in 2009. In addition, first quarter Adjusted EBITDA (Earnings Before Interest, Taxes, Depreciation, and Amortization) increased 71%, to $24.1 million, compared to $14.1 million for the same quarter in 2009.

First quarter net income was $8.0 million, or $0.32 per diluted share, compared with a net income of $1.6 million, or $0.07 per diluted share, for the same period in 2009.

Much of the growth came from an 80% increase in first quarter revenue from the delivery of HD advertising content, from $10.9 million in 2009 to $19.7 million in 2010.

As of March 31, 2010, the company reported $51.0 million in cash, and $97.1 million in debt, or a net debt of $46.1 million. Subsequent to the end of the quarter, the company completed a public equity offering, raising net proceeds of approximately $108 million. With the proceeds from the equity offering, all outstanding debt was retired.

Chairman and CEO of DG FastChannel, Scott Ginsburg, commented on the strong showing. “We are very pleased with our strong first quarter 2010 performance. Stellar growth in both traditional and online advertising, the continued adoption of the high definition (HD) advertising format, and the advent of a hotly contested year in politics all contributed to our accelerated growth this quarter. DG FastChannel’s first quarter 2010 performance positions the company well this year for what is shaping up to be a robust advertising environment. With the completion of the recent equity offering and the move to a ‘net cash’ position in early April, the company has substantially improved its free cash flow, financial flexibility, and the opportunity to negotiate a larger and enhanced revolving credit facility. As opportunities come along to better serve our customers and add value for our shareholders, we are well prepared."

Sound Financial Inc. (SNFL) Announces First Quarter Financial Results

Yesterday, Sound Financial Inc. announced financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010. Sound Financial Inc. is the holding company for Sound Community Bank. The Company reported a net profit of $57 thousand dollars for the quarter ended March 31, 2010, compared to a net loss of $462 thousand dollars in the fourth quarter of 2009.

“It appears we are starting to see some signs of stabilization in the economy at large, however local unemployment levels and real estate values may continue to restrain near term economic recovery in the Puget Sound area. We remain focused on credit quality, growing our margin and increasing efficiencies,” said Sound Financial Inc.’s President and Chief Executive Officer, Laurie Stewart.

For the Company’s first quarter highlights, Net Interest margin increased to 4.66 percent, while the Efficiency Ratio decreased to 69 percent. The Company’s Allowance for Loan Losses to loans outstanding increased to 1.36 percent. In addition, Sound Community Bank remains “Well Capitalized”, with Tier 1 Capital of 7.45 percent and Total Risk Based Capital of 11.43 percent.

Sound Financial Inc. has their headquarters in Seattle, Washington. Sound Community Bank is a full-service bank, providing personal and business banking services in communities across the greater Puget Sound region. They operate banking offices in King, Pierce, Snohomish, and Clallam Counties.

Sound Community Bank completed their reorganization to the mutual holding company structure by forming a mid-tier holding company, Sound Financial, Inc. in 2008. Sound Community Bank also set up a charitable foundation at that time. The Sound Community Foundation grants money to local charities and organizations to help make a difference in their communities.

The Bank selected the name Sound Community Bank based on the heritage of the financial institution and their credit union roots. They provide traditional banking and financial services in the areas that they serve.
