Strategic American Oil Corporation (SGCA) 

This month, Hot OTC, Small Cap Review, and Bold Stocks reported on Strategic American Oil Corporation (SGCA). Street Authority Financial, Schaeffer's, Lebed.biz, Another Winning Trade, The Best Newsletters, Market FN, StockEgg.com, Hidden Values Alert, Stealth Stocks, The Bull Report, The Dean, The Green Baron, PennyOmega.com, Investment House, Stock Research Newsletter, Cool Penny Stocks, Penny Invest, and Stock Rich did earlier, and we highlight the Company as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.  

Trading on the OTC Bulletin Board, Strategic American Oil Corporation is an exploration and production company. They have operations in Texas, Louisiana, and Illinois, and have an internationally recognized team of geologists, engineers, and executives with extensive oil and gas exploration and production experience. Strategic American Oil Corporation has their corporate headquarters in Corpus Christi, Texas. They also have their Illinois Exploration Office in Mt. Vernon, Illinois.  

Strategic American Oil Corp.’s objective is to find and acquire oil and gas projects of merit and develop those projects to their full potential. They have developed and implemented a multi-tier growth program. This includes developing salable drilling prospects in-house retaining a carried interest to casing point, and the drilling of offset wells retaining a majority of the working interest.  

Their growth program also includes developing secondary recovery (waterflood) projects and increasing production by re-working existing producing or previously producing wells. “Waterflood” is an oil extraction method where water is pumped into an injection well displacing the reservoir formation and forcing the oil into a recovery well. This method is used to recover additional oil in place following primary production methods. 

The Company also works to develop proven undeveloped zones (behind pipe) in existing wells, and to acquire currently producing oil and gas wells. In addition, they look to complete in-house 3D seismic projects and acquire 3D data where warranted and/or available. 

Strategic American Oil Corporation has leased a 1,043 net acre (m/l) Frio Sand (gas) target in South Texas. They identified this through their acquired 303 sq. mile 3D seismic database. The Company’s exploration team believes the multiple Frio sands identified in the seismic profile could contain significant gas and condensate reserves and proposes to drill one to two wells to test the Frio zones. 

Strategic American Oil Corporation announced in early April that the drilling contract for their Victoria Co., Texas “Koliba” Prospect was executed. The Company will retain a 16.33 percent carried working interest to casing point, 25 percent working interest after casing point. This puts them in a low risk/high reward scenario.  

The combined leased acreage (Koliba-Linville) consists of 143 acres. It covers an anticipated anticlinal structure (target) with offsetting production. Strategic American Oil Corporation plans to drill a direct offset to the Murphy Baxter, Koliba #1 well which produced from the 5,880 feet (target) zone. 

On May 4, 2010, Strategic American Oil Corporation reported that they have made progress to further their goal of increasing production through various means. This is to build their revenues and enhance shareholder value while the Company prepares for upcoming drilling operations. They have leased, reworked, and purchased oil and gas projects at various stages of development.  

The company has executed the drilling contract for the Koliba lease and booked the drill rig for May 15, 2010. They also acquired the final 10 percent working interest in the two Barge Canal producing wells. In addition, the Company leased and reworked the Dixon #1 well to the point of production and is currently preparing to rework the Dixon #2. They identified and began leasing a second waterflood prospect in the Illinois Basin as well. 

President and CEO Jeremy Driver stated, “We have had a great year to date at Strategic American Oil, where we have seen developments on all fronts and we have only just begun. We are ready to begin drilling the Koliba (our first in-house generated prospect), we have purchased current production at the Barge Canal (at great value to the Company) and we have reworked the first Dixon well to the point of production.” 

We have Strategic American Oil Corporation on our radar screens as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

GoldCorp Holdings, Co. is an exploration and development company that trades on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company specializes in Gold and Silver mining properties in North America. They acquire mineral properties for consolidating scattered land holdings into a solid portfolio. Their intention is then to develop the properties to full-scale mining with established industry leaders as partners. GoldCorp Holdings Co. has their headquarters in Bradenton, Florida. 

Properties that GoldCorp Holdings, Co. acquires must have proven remaining reserves with evidence of previous rich strikes and once-strong production. Additionally, all properties that the Company acquires must be near existing mining operations and infrastructure owned by strong industry leaders. 

GoldCorp Holdings Co. currently owns 14 mines that are on all three gold and silver veins of War Eagle Mountain. The mines have shafts and workings ranging from 200 feet in depth, to 1,200 feet in depth. War Eagle Mountain is south of Boise, Idaho in the Silver City Mining District.  

The War Eagle properties have produced approximately $270 Million dollars in Gold and Silver. The War Eagle Properties are next to two successful open-pit mines owned by Kinross Gold Co. Together, the two open-pit mines have produced almost $1.8 Billion dollars in Gold and Silver bullion to date.  

The War Eagle-Florida-Delamar Mountain trend is an east to west continuum. It has very tight high-grade silver and gold mineralization to the east (War Eagle Mountain) and increasing volume and decreasing grade to the west (DeLamar Mountain). On 8,051 foot high War Eagle Mountain, the eastern most and highest grade of the three Gold peaks, considerable tonnage of gold and silver bearing ore has undergone mining so far. 

Exploration efforts continue on the mountain. These efforts are in order to determine the depth, length, width, and grade of the existing mineralized veins. Additional exploration efforts are aimed at discovering new zones of ore. The mineral portfolio of GoldCorp Holdings, Co., is considered a valuable target in any potential acquisition effort of the War Eagle Mountain District.

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

China Wind Systems Inc. (CWS) Posts Positive Guidance for 2010 Based on Anticipation of Increased Demand

China Wind Systems Inc., a leading supplier of various forged components primarily to the wind power and textile industries in China, today announced guidance for fiscal year 2010, posting its expectation for significant increases.

The Company said it expects 2010 revenues between $76.5 million and $85 million, a 43 percent to 59 percent increase from $53.5 million reported in fiscal 2009. EBITDA is expected to range between $22.7 million and $25.2 million, representing a 106 percent to 129 percent increase compared to $11.0 million reported in fiscal 2009. Adjusted net income, which excludes non-cash expenses related to convertible securities and warrants, is anticipated to be between $15.5 million and $16.3 million, representing an increase between 99 percent and 109 percent, compared to $7.8 million reported in fiscal 2009.

China Wind Systems is basing its guidance on anticipation of stronger demand for both its traditional forged products and ESR forged products in 2010; company management also expects stronger sales of precision forged products used in large wind turbines, with revenue from its wind industry segment expected to increase by approximately 75 percent.

Additionally, the company said it expects its dye machine segment to recover in 2010 on the tail of the industry’s recovery in early 2010.

“We are pleased to see a healthy flow of customer orders in early 2010,” Jianhua Wu, chairman and CEO of China Wind System stated in the press release. “As our forging facility becomes more efficient, we anticipate improvement in our profit margins. We believe we have the right strategy in place to cater to the rapidly growing wind power industry in China.”

Lingo Media Corp. (LMDCF) Acquires ELL Technologies

Lingo Media Corp., a leading educational products and services company focused on English language learning in China, announced today that it has acquired all issued and outstanding shares of UK-based ELL Technologies Limited, a developer and provider of English language instruction solutions, distributed in 11 markets in Asia and Europe. The purchase will expand the Lingo product line, and extend its reach into 10 new countries, generating increased revenue.

ELL Technologies currently markets its proprietary English language instruction products in China, Korea, Malaysia, Mongolia, the Philippines, Vietnam, Denmark, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Turkey, and the U.S. Their portfolio offers a full suite of interactive English language learning products, already localized into several languages. The new markets will offer Lingo considerable cross-selling opportunities with Parlo, a recently launched fee-based English language learning training and assessment service focused on spoken English.

Lingo President and CEO, Michael Kraft, said, “This acquisition is an example of Lingo Media’s commitment to a strategic business model that acquires undervalued assets and rapidly integrates them into our product portfolio with minimal capital expenditure. ELL Technologies has invested more than US$10 Million in development of its innovative e-learning infrastructure and its proprietary pedagogy, content and technology. The purchase of ELL Technologies, combined with the additions of Speak2Me and Parlo, provides Lingo Media with a strong, complementary suite of online service offerings available 24/7 that give our growing global base of users and customers one of the most comprehensive ranges of English language learning solutions in the market. We look forward to aggressively marketing the ELL Technologies products alongside our recently launched Parlo Business English solution into our increasing sales pipeline in China, and into new markets around the world.”

Lingo Media already has a strong presence in China, representing an education market of 300 million, including strong relationships with key government and industry organizations. The company plans to extend its reach globally, and the ELL acquisition is seen as an important move in this direction.
