The QualityStocks Daily

Defentect Group, Inc. (DFTC)

Today we are highlighting Defentect Group, Inc. (DFTC) as "One to Watch" this week, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Defentect Group, Inc. is a developer and provider of rapid response software applications for the threat detection industry. The Company develops software applications that are critical to coordinating rapid responses to chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) threats. Founded in 2000, Defentect Group, Inc. has their headquarters in Norwalk, Connecticut.

Formerly known as Splinternet Holdings, Inc., the Company changed their name to Defentect Group, Inc. in March 2010. Their flagship solution, DM3™, is an unattended gamma radiation detection-network. It integrates data from a wide-area pervasive grid of sensors to an incident command center. DM3™ is networked using IP and managed over the Web. When high-energy gamma rays from dirty bomb components interact with the Company’s Gammatect™ sensors, DM3’s™ proprietary algorithms analyze the data and alert authorities to radiation that may pose a security threat.

Communication features of DM3™ enable the ability to receive and process data over a network from the radiation sensor to the command center as well as to PDAs, cell phones or pagers. The addition of strategically placed Gammatect Plus™ sensors enable DM3™ to identify the isotope causing the radiation, providing control over false positive alarms.

DM3™ software is the management and messaging component that provides administrative and configuration services for the detection system. Devices are configurable, status can undergo monitoring, alert messages can send to a variety of systems, system reports can generate, and multiple user accounts can be set with various privileges. The Defentect DM3™ intelligent threat awareness network can offer unattended detection, alerts, and messaging for a variety of threat-event detection demands including CBRNE.

The Company’s Gammatect™ sensor offers gross gamma radiation detection for threat level sources. The design of these sensors is to identify radioactivity of levels that would be used in a terrorist attack. The design of Gammatect™ sensors is for them to undergo deployment in a wide network to provide early warning and situational awareness. Gammatect™ sensors detect gamma radiation above 20 mR/hr in less than one second. They will detect a dirty bomb made with 60 curies of Cesium-137 at a distance of 29.5 meters, or approximately 100 feet.

Gammatect Plus™ is scintillator-based and enables real-time alerts and gamma-radiation isotope identification in an unattended perimeter or portal network. During a high radiological count event, isotope ID and date transmit to a remote command center, triggering an alarm. System administrators can designate alerts to be triggered to PDAs, cell phones, pagers or other mobile clients using the Company’s DM3™.

We have Defentect Group, Inc. (DFTC) locked on our radar screens as "One to Watch" this week, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Defentect Group, Inc. (DFTC) closed Monday's session at $0.25 up 30.89 percent. Volume was 2,918,373.

Glen Rose Petroleum Corporation (GLRP)

Microcap Voice and SmallCap Voice reported earlier on Glen Rose Petroleum Corporation (GLRP), and we highlight the Company today, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Glen Rose Petroleum Corporation, formerly United Heritage Corporation, focuses on the development of on-shore U.S. oil and gas assets. Glen Rose has four leases covering 10,500 acres in the Wardlaw Field located in Edwards County, Texas. The oil has categorization as "medium crude"; the deposits are in the light gravity range of heavy oil at 18-22 API gravity. Glen Rose Petroleum Corporation trades on the OTCBB and the Company has their headquarters in Katy, Texas.

Glen Rose owns UHC Petroleum Corporation, a Texas corporation, which is a licensed operator with the Texas Railroad Commission. UHC Petroleum Corporation is an independent producer of natural gas and crude oil based in Dallas, Texas and Edwards County, Texas. UHC Petroleum operates the Wardlaw Field.

The Company's Management Team believes the acreage has always held great reserves, with the only question outstanding on the technology to extract the reserves properly. The Wardlaw Field is 10,502.3 acres (of which more than 10,000 acres are undeveloped) with production from the upper Glen Rose dolomitic deposit (A Zone) at a depth of approximately 300 feet. The leaseholds include 103 wellbores. Of these wells, 92 are currently capable of producing and 44 wells are producing.

The Management Team completed an initial engineering study that indicates the field only requires the addition of pressure in order to establish meaningful long-term production. The owning of the area is under four full mineral leases (UHC 100 percent working interest) with a 25 percent Royalty. The leases have been perpetuated by drilling to-date to 2014. The Leases are all extended by 90 days for every well drilled on any part of the lease area, whether producing or not. The area leased also has deep gas potential from the Pennsylvanian/Atocka formations at 9,600 feet.

On March 5, 2010, Glen Rose Petroleum Corporation announced that they closed on a funding totaling $4,350,000 from Iroquois Capital Opportunity Fund, LP. The transaction consists of $3,350,000 in secured convertible notes and warrants, and $1,000,000 for the purchase of an undivided 12.5 percent working interest in the non-producing portions of their leases in the Wardlaw Field in Edwards County, Texas. Glen Rose Petroleum retained Nomad Energy, Inc. and Iromad LLC to advise and support field service and development at the Wardlaw Field with access to state of the art enhanced oil recovery technologies.

Glen Rose Petroleum Corporation (GLRP) closed Monday's trading session at $0.42 up 68.00 percent. Volume was 73,428.

JayHawk Energy, Inc. (JYHW)

The Online Investor, SmallCap Voice, Standout Stocks, Daily Wealth, Hot Stock Chat, OTC Picks, Trade of the Week, and Stealth Stocks reported on JayHawk Energy, Inc. (JYHW). In addition, Hidden Values Alert, MicroCap Gems, Gold and Energy Advisor, Weiss Research, and Street Authority Financial reported on the Company, and we do as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

JayHawk Energy, Inc. is a managed risk oil and gas exploration/exploitation, development, and production company. The Company focuses their activities on two major projects. These projects are in the Cherokee Basin, Kansas, and the Williston Basin, North Dakota. JayHawk Energy, Inc. has their corporate headquarters in Post Falls, Idaho. Founded in 2004, JayHawk Energy, Inc. trades on the OTC Bulletin Board.

The Company's key asset currently consists of 17,000 gross acres of mineral title on a light crude producing property in Candak, North Dakota, part of the Williston Basin. JayHawk is moving forward with a new and substantial development-drilling program at Candak.

The Company's secondary property is on 45,000 gross acres of mineral title with producing and non-producing coal-bed methane gas reserves. Their focus here is on the exploration, drilling, and development of the acreage known as the Uniontown and Girard projects located in the Cherokee Basin, Bourbon, and Crawford Counties, Kansas. Adjacent to these projects is their wholly owned pipeline, tied to sales.

On April 30, 2010, JayHawk Energy, Inc. reported that both wells drilled recently on their Crosby North Dakota oil property are equipped and are now on production. The initial well drilled on the Knudson location is currently making oil at 3-8 BOPD (barrels of oil per day) with some water.

The second well, the Jenks #1 is making a significant volume of water. The expectation is that the Jenks location will start making oil as the fluid level in the well bore continues to be drawn down by pumping at higher rates. Testing indicated high overall fluid volumes, likely the result of encountering natural fractures in the reservoir during drilling.

The Jenks has the capability of producing more than 200 BFPD (barrels of fluid per day). The Knudson is producing less than 20 BFPD. JayHawk Energy, Inc. will continue to monitor the wells, determine remedial procedures and begin to identify the next several drilling locations on their developing oil asset.

"These differences in the two wells demonstrate the very changeable nature of the reservoir from well to well; however, we feel confident that both wells will contribute to JayHawk's production base for many years to come," said JayHawk Energy, Inc. President, Mr. Marshall Diamond-Goldberg.

JayHawk Energy, Inc. (JYHW) closed Monday's session at $0.63 up 8.62 percent. Volume was 614,707.

General Environmental Management Inc. (GEVI)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight General Environmental Management Inc. (GEVI) Today, General Environmental Management Inc. closed trading at $0.13, which was up 9.24 percent. Their volume today was 499,843 shares.

General Environmental Management Inc. announced the release of a company overview as presented by General Environmental Management, Inc. CEO Timothy J. Koziol. The complete release can be found at the following here

SectorWatch.biz announced the availability of a commentary of interest to investors in General Environmental Management Inc. (GEVI) and other environmental services companies making news and driving markets today.

General Environmental Management Inc. (GEVI) has shifted its business focus from hazardous waste field services to the fast growing water treatment and waste-to-energy markets. Growing its business organically and developing state-of-the-art systems for operations, sales, compliance, finance, and human resources which can then be deployed at other acquired facilities, the company aims to establish a nationwide network of environmental facilities.

The strategic decision to shift the company’s focus was made after an all inclusive analysis of GEVI's opportunity in the environmental management business. Although the company could have worked through the current economic downturn and built revenue in its field services business, management believed that shareholders would be rewarded by moving the company into the higher margin, faster growing business segments.

Within the U.S. alone, the water industry is a $120 Billion market that is expected to grow at 6-7% over the next year. On a global basis, the industry size exceeds $400 billion annually and increasing with the demands of a growing world population. The global waste-to-energy market, on the other hand, is a $19.9 billion market with expected CAGR of 6.7% over the next five years.

The company’s management team believes that 2010-2011 will be years of enormous growth. GEM’s change of focus is also expected to result in margins up to eight times greater than those of the previous hazardous waste services only model. With a very selective and calculated acquisition strategy in place, GEVI is poised for continued success.

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 $0.0420, which was up 5.00 percent. Their volume today was 49,357 shares.

Micro Identification Technologies Inc. (MMTC) announced that they obtained an equity financing commitment of up to $5,000,000 from a private equity firm, Dutchess Capital, through their Dutchess Opportunity Fund, LP.

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 $0.1110, which was up 23.33 percent. Their volume today was 35,000 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

Newport Digital Technologies, Inc. (NPDT) Constructing an Unassailable Fortress in the Tech Sector

Newport Digital Technologies, Inc. is constantly focused on securing innovative and highly marketable new intellectual property via its exclusive partnerships with two of the world’s leading technology incubators based in Taiwan and consisting of some 8k of the planet’s top engineers and scientists:

• The Institute for Information Industry (III) is a global leader in RFID and WiMAX with a proven track record for outstanding design and implementation of large scale information systems, like Taiwan’s massive e-Government project, whose success is rivaled only by the III’s success in developing strategic relationships within Taiwan’s IT industry.

Hard at work constructing a streamlined network of partners in licensing, sales and distribution, NPDT is also cultivating third-party component and original design manufacturer (ODMs) relationships to create a sophisticated architecture that is able to fully exploit the commercial possibilities of the Company’s key technology position, which unifies innovation with localized logistics to create tightly integrated systems that are custom designed to meet the specific needs of the individual client.

On the cutting edge of emergent technology, and with a strong hand in rapidly growing wireless broadband space, NPDT is well-positioned both as a solutions provider with a rich set of core competencies and as an innovator with access to revolutionary new developments in everything from RFID and digital signage to VoIP and security/surveillance.

National Automation Services (NASV) Set For National Expansion

National Automation Services Inc., an automation and control systems integration company gearing up for both geographical and industrial expansion, is continuing its preparations to acquire a number of local and regional automation control service companies around the country. With its recent significant announcement that it has obtained an equity financing commitment of $5 million from Ascendiant Capital Group, LLC, a private equity firm, and its affiliate, Ascendiant Equity Partners, LLC, NASV has taken a major step in furthering that business plan.

The financing agreement has a 24-month term, during which NAS may sell shares of its common stock to Ascendiant up to the total commitment amount. The timing and amount of any such sale is completely up to NASV (additional details are available at the company’s website, www.NASautomation.com). The agreement represents only one of several financing strategies the company is pursuing as part of their growth strategy, which envisions internal growth combined with expansion through selected acquisitions.

National Automation Services designs, produces, and installs specialized automation systems for a variety of applications, including water and wastewater treatment, airport security, bottling plants and breweries, mining, power plants, food processing, and nearly all types of production operations. Along with a handful of major players in the $500 billion industry, there are perhaps 300 local and regional firms providing automation and control services. These smaller companies can better respond to the needs of local businesses and municipalities, but are constrained by a limited market space, and have no way of monetizing their asset values. National intends to acquire and integrate the strongest such companies into a new organization, providing the synergies and efficiencies of a national company while maintaining the competitive local advantage.

National has already targeted 11 of these companies for acquisition over the next two years and projects year-end 2010 revenues of more than $47 million, with year-end 2011 revenues of over $140 million, predicated on meeting its growth schedule.

General Environmental Management, Inc. (GEVI) CEO Provides Special Shareholder Address

General Environmental Management Inc. announced early this morning the release of a company overview as presented by General Environmental Management, Inc. CEO Timothy J. Koziol. The “State of the Union” style communiqué provides current and prospective shareholders with a complete picture of where the company currently stands in its revised business model to expand from an environmental services only company to an enterprise that begins with the treatment and disposal of non-hazardous wastewater at its subsidiary, Southern California Waste Water (SCWW), and expands to include a full spectrum of environmental services.

Chief Executive Officer of GEM Timothy J. Koziol began the communiqué by stating, “Over the recent months, General Environmental Management has changed direction, company vision, and company profitability. As we evolve into our new business model, we recognize the importance of keeping our shareholders up-to-date. It is with this intention that I present this communiqué to you today.”

“Since 2002, GEM has been providing a premium level of environmental solutions to clients in the Western Region of the United States. While our direction has changed from hazardous waste services to the treatment and disposal of non-hazardous wastewater, we remain vigilant and focused on building shareholder value. Our previous business model focused primarily on environmental services and the management of hazardous waste. Our proprietary software solution, GEMWare, was designed to give GEM and its clients the data needed to efficiently manage regulated waste streams from start to final treatment and disposal.”

“While this business model suited us for a time, and provided the framework to build General Environmental Management, we believed that higher profitability lay in non-hazardous wastewater treatment. Water stands as the 3rd largest industry behind power generation and oil and gas. According to the US Bureau of Labor Statistics, the water and wastewater industry experienced 4%, 2%, and 8% growth in the 1990, 2001, and 2007 recessions respectively. GEM’s Board of Directors decided the Company should change its focus from a purely services based company to an enterprise with a foundation in a fixed based treatment and disposal facility, like SCWW.”

Mr. Koziol continued, “SCWW, a non-hazardous wastewater treatment facility in Santa Paula, California, was our platform. We acquired them and began plans to grow the business organically and develop state-of-the-art systems for operations, sales, compliance, finance, and human resources at SCWW which can then be deployed at other acquired facilities. Our expert staff created a turn-key system sculpted from GEM’s expertise to streamline processes and provide dynamic full spectrum environmental services. Ultimately, GEM aims to establish a nationwide network of wastewater treatment facilities over the next few years, seeking out acquisitions and reformulating them to the GEM standards.”

“Margins from the treatment of hazardous waste were between 5%-10%, mainly due to the costs involved in the final disposal stage at permitted facilities operated by outside sources. Non-hazardous wastewater treatment margins at SCWW by contrast are over 30%. Taking ownership of the final processing plant at SCWW has proven to be the key in securing maximum profitability. Our change of focus has resulted in margins up to eight times greater than those maintained by our hazardous waste services only model. We are excited about our business strategy to push greater volume with a scalability that permits us to grow at a solid pace.”

Koziol added, “The domestic water industry is approximately $120 billion in size, with the global market currently calculated at over $400 billion. The industry is growing each year with increasing demands from industry, government and consumers. In 2009, SCWW gross revenues totaled $6,205,903 with an EBITDA of $1,751,333. In 2010 we expect to see continued growth at SCWW.”

Mr. Timothy Koziol concluded, “The new systems we are developing and deploying at SCWW are turn-key, completely scalable and provide a platform for future growth. Our new business model is also more in tune with the economic landscape of today. The sign of any good company is the ability to not only survive in an economic downturn, but to thrive. As stated previously, we believe that 2010-2011 will be years of enormous growth for GEM.”
