Vision Industries, Corp. (VIIC)

Investor Ideas, The Green Baron, SmallCap Sentinel, Emerging Markets, Stockpalooza, and Stock Guru reported earlier on Vision Industries, Corp. (VIIC). Today, we are highlighting the Company as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Vision Industries Corp. is a provider of hydrogen fuel cell/plug-in electric powered vehicles and turnkey hydrogen fueling systems. The Company’s proprietary hydrogen fuel cell/plug-in electric drive system combines the superior acceleration of a battery powered electric vehicle with the extended range provided by a hydrogen fuel cell. The Company trades on the OTC Bulletin Board and they have their headquarters in Los Angeles, California.

Vision Industries Corp. uses major manufacturers as partners or sub contractors to produce their vehicles. Therefore, they avoid significant outlays of startup capital. Many regional, state, and federal alternative energy programs consisting of grants, subsidies, tax credits, and loans exist or are planned.

The Company’s Tyrano™ truck is the world’s first hybrid plug-in electric/hydrogen fuel cell-powered heavy-duty class 8 truck. It features zero emissions, reduced operating cost, and high-level performance. The Vision heavy-duty class trucks are significantly less expensive to operate on a per mile basis than diesel and natural gas powered trucks. The Vision hydrogen/electric drive system has approximately 400-536 HP and 3,200-3,300 ft/lb of torque available. This is almost double the pulling power of a conventional diesel truck.

Vision is also in prototype development of the Cheetah™, which is being designed to be the world’s first hydrogen fuel cell/ plug-in electric-powered supercar. It will feature zero emissions and acceleration from zero to 60 MPH faster than production Ferraris, Lamborghinis, Porsches, and the battery powered Tesla.

This past January, Vision Industries announced that Capacity of Texas, Inc. and Vision joined forces to build a Zero Emissions Terminal Tractor (ZETT™). The ZETT is undergoing construction on Capacity’s PHETT® platform and powered by the Vision plug-in electric/hydrogen fuel cell technology. The PHETT® was the world’s 1st Hybrid Terminal Tractor.

On May 25, 2010, Vision Industries Corp. announced that they entered into an agreement with Asemblon Inc. of Redmond, Washington. This agreement is for an exclusive license to sell Hydrnol for fleet fueling. The focus will be on centralized or strategically located fuel centers for heavy duty, Class 8 commercial vehicles equipped with fuel cells as the primary power source, excluding hybrids and gas or diesel combustion engines, within the continental U.S. Hydrnol is an organic chemical “carrier” for hydrogen transportation and storage. It is a simple, recyclable, rechargeable, organic molecule that carries hydrogen, which is released on demand through an onboard reactor.

Innovative Designs Inc. (IVDN)

SmallCap Voice reported earlier on Innovative Designs Inc. (IVDN), and we are highlighting the Company as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Founded in 2002, Innovative Designs, Inc. manufactures the Arctic Armor™ Line, hunting apparel, swimwear, wind shirts, jackets, and the multi-function "All in One", under the "i.d.i.gear" label featuring Insultex™. This Insultex™ is an ultra thin, light, and warm insulator. Innovative Designs Inc. has their corporate headquarters in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. The Company trades on the OTCBB.

Each Arctic Armor™ suit utilizes three layers of the Company's exclusive thermal insulator Insultex™. One layer of Insultex™ protects a person to sub-zero temperatures. Multiple layers of Insultex™ can provide almost unlimited levels of insulation. Insultex™ is also windproof, waterproof, and buoyant. Innovative Designs perfected the design under the strictest guidelines to ensure buoyancy. The Arctic Armor™ suit, with Insultex™, consists of micro-air molecules trapped inside the fabric to enhance buoyancy.

Insultex™ is the Company's new thermal insulation on the market. It is suitable for use in outerwear, gloves, hats, pants, tents, sleeping bags, coolers, boots, swimsuits, blankets, and comforters. It is suited to almost anything that would benefit from insulating or buoyant qualities.

Innovative Designs markets their products through distributors, sporting goods catalogs, trade shows, and retail outlets and chains. They also market through their Web portal, www.idigear.com. The Company markets in the United States, Canada, the Russian Federation, and Finland.

In April, the Company announced that their retail presence continues to expand in Alaska. This is with the addition of Three Bears Alaska Inc. In late April, Innovative Designs Inc. announced that they completed the testing phase for their Insultex® House-Wrap. Testing took place at two facilities, one in British Columbia, and the other in Rhode Island.

Today, Innovative Designs Inc. announced that sales for their 3rd quarter (May-June-July) showed an approximate 15 percent comp increase over last year. This was in spite of international sales in 2009. Those 2009 international sales accounted for approximately 78 percent of the total revenues in May 2009. There were no international sales in the 3rd quarter of 2010. A portion of the 3rd quarter increase is attributable to the addition of Alaskan retailers, which have recently begun carrying IDIGear product.

Mr. Joseph Riccelli, CEO of Innovative Designs Inc, commented, "We will reach unprecedented sales for the upcoming 4th quarter. With August orders already packed and ready for delivery, we will sell well over 30 times what we did last year in August. With strong sales representation now in place in new territories such as Alaska, Canada and up and down the East Coast, things could get interesting."

TechniScan, Inc. (TSNI)

Wall Street News Alert, Research Driven Investor, Stock Market News Alert, Wall Streets Hottest Stocks, and Stock Market News Alert reported earlier on TechniScan, Inc. (TSNI), and we highlight the Company as "One to Watch", here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter. ‏

TechniScan, Inc. is a medical device company that trades on the OTC Bulletin Board. The Company engages in the development and commercialization of an automated 3D breast ultrasound imaging system. TechniScan's Warm Bath Ultrasound (WBU) imaging device is limited by U.S. law to investigational use unless, and until, cleared by the FDA. The Company has their corporate headquarters in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The design of TechniScan's Warm Bath Ultrasound (WBU) system is to capture three-dimensional images of the breast, as a woman lies prone on a table. State-of-the-art ultrasound technology is used in a warm water tank to image the breast anatomy. The Company's new method of imaging produces information and whole breast images that are not available with traditional reflection ultrasound or whole breast ultrasound systems presently on the market.

The TechniScan WBU System is a software-controlled, fixed room, ultrasound system. The design of the system is to maximize patient comfort during the scanning process. This is by enabling the operator to perform an automated whole breast examination while the patient lies prone on the system’s examination table with the breast comfortably suspended in a warm water bath maintained near skin temperature. The ultrasound array is moved in a continuous scan so that a complete series of 2-D image slices of the breast are collected. The resulting images are viewable on a DICOM review station.

TechniScan has scanned more than 800 women in clinical studies in Salt Lake City and Ogden, Utah as well as Orange and San Diego, California. These past clinical studies focused on key factors. This included image quality, repeatability, and establishing protocols for testing baseline values for positive and negative predictive capabilities of the system.

This past June, TechniScan, Inc. announced that they launched a clinical study in Rochester, Minnesota. This is the Company's third new clinical site to commence recently. TechniScan's current study sites include the University Medical Center Freiburg in Germany, Moores UCSD Cancer Center, and the latest clinical study site in Rochester, Minnesota as well as limited imaging studies that support product development in Genoa, Italy and Salt Lake City, Utah.

TechniScan, Inc. expects that the WBU system will provide radiologists with information about the bulk properties of tissue in the breast as well as useful images of the tissue structure. Their technology has undergone development through research supported, in part, by federal research grants and private and government research contracts. From the Company's inception through March 31, 2010, they have generated revenues solely from grants and research contracts. The WBU system has not yet been approved by the FDA for commercial sale; therefore, TechniScan, Inc. has not yet generated revenues from non-research product sales.

We're tracking TechniScan, Inc. (TSNI) on our radar screens as "One to Watch" this week, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

TechniScan, Inc. (TSNI) closed Tuesday's trading session at $3.00, for no change on no volume. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 1,741 with a 52-week low/high of $2.04/$8.00.

Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN)

Beacon Equity Research, Outcast Traders, Micro Stock Profit, Stock Hideout, and Penny Stock Finder reported today on Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN), and we highlight the Company as well, here at the QualityStocks Daily Newsletter.

Carbon Sciences Inc. is a company innovating in the Waste Management industry. The Company's focus is on developing their technology to convert carbon dioxide into a form that does not contribute to the warming of the earth's environment. Trading on the OTCBB, Carbon Sciences Inc. has their corporate headquarters in Santa Barbara, California.

Carbon Sciences Inc. believes that by eliminating harmful CO2 from power plants and industrial factories, there will be a reduction in global warming. They see the transformation of damaging CO2 into useful carbon products, with their patent-pending technology helping create environmentally friendly products. They also see this technology as helping industries be more environmentally conscious.

Carbon Sciences is developing a technology to transform CO2 emissions into the basic fuel building blocks required to produce gasoline, diesel fuel, jet fuel, and other fuels. They are developing a highly scalable biocatalytic process to meet global fuel needs.

Carbon Sciences Inc., in March of 2009, announced the completion of their prototype, engineered to demonstrate their proprietary biocatalytic CO2-to-Fuel process. By applying their patent-pending technology in a laboratory scale prototype, they successfully transformed a stream of CO2 gas into methanol fuel. The prototype uses their biocatalytic process to break down CO2 and water. It then combines the carbon and hydrogen to form methanol. The methanol is directly usable as a fuel and can build higher-level fuels such as gasoline, butanol, and jet fuel.

Carbon Sciences Inc. announced in January 2010 the development of certain process technologies that will allow for the production of gasoline, shorten the time to commercialization, and reduce the system and operating costs of their CO2-to-Fuel technology.

Carbon Sciences Inc.'s current approach is an enzyme-based process used to transform CO2 into low-level fuels, such as methanol. Dr. Naveed Aslam, chief technology officer of Carbon Sciences, discovered a new and more cost efficient process to produce gasoline, a high-level fuel, from CO2.

The key features of this breakthrough include the use of flue emissions directly from coal-fired power plants or industrial factories, eliminating the need for "clean" CO2. It also includes the use of brackish water, eliminating the need for distilled freshwater as the source of hydrogen and reaction medium. It also includes mild operating conditions, eliminating the need for capital-intensive stainless steel equipment. In addition, it includes a highly scalable system to transform large quantities of CO2 into gasoline for use in the existing transportation infrastructure.

In early June 2010, Carbon Sciences, Inc. announced the filing of the first of a series of patent applications for their highly scalable clean-tech CO2 based Gas to Liquids (GTL) fuel technology. This is for transforming a combination of natural gas and carbon dioxide (CO2) directly into gasoline. The first patent application discloses the design and manufacturing of a novel chemical catalyst that converts methane gas and carbon dioxide gas (CO2) directly into gasoline.

Yesterday, the Company announced the successful synthesis of a proprietary raw catalyst, an essential step toward demonstrating commercial feasibility of the technology.

"In June of this year, we filed a landmark patent application for our breakthrough CO2 based Gas-to-Liquids technology," said CEO Byron Elton. "The production of this catalyst is the actual laboratory scale implementation of the catalyst formulation and its synthesis process disclosed in the patent. It is a major step forward for us," he added.

Carbon Sciences Inc. (CABN) closed Tuesday’s trading session at $0.1020, up 28.79%, on 7,145,097 volume with 917 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 337,010 with a 52-week low/high of $0.05/$0.23.

The management agreement will have a term of 15 years.

“When we announced this decision yesterday, we did so with the clear vision of taking the years of management expertise and execution in the waste management field, and deploying those capabilities on the BESG project,” stated GEM CEO Tim Koziol. “This partnership with BESG has the potential to bring considerable revenue into GEM. The size and scope of this project should lead to strong, predictable and profitable revenue streams. We project that we will be managing more than 4,900,000 tons per year of feedstock from over 368 municipalities just in the initial facility in Brazil, with upside potential to add many more municipalities throughout the country. With estimated revenue of $25 and $30 per ton of waste, the potential is enormous.

“It became clear to our management team that this relationship with BESG will occupy all of our time, effort and energy and is the best way to create shareholder value in our company. We will be updating shareholders regularly on this new strategic direction. I want to emphasize, however, that we had made the decision to move into the waste-to-energy market several months ago. The BESG opportunity came from our announced intent to be in that market. Being able to deploy our knowledge and waste management skills to not only generate substantial revenue, but to solve a deepening waste management and energy problem in Brazil, is very satisfying. We hope to reward shareholders through our decision to move in this direction,” added Koziol. 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 $0.07, for no change, on 10,000 volume with 2 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 17,179 with a 52-week low/high of $0.04/$0.158.

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

Axesstel, Inc. (AXST) Posts Q2 Results; Hints at Positive Second Half for 2010

Wireless solutions provider Axesstel Inc. today posted its second quarter and six-month financial results for the period ended June 30, 2010, highlighting its focus for the second half of 2010.

The company reported revenues for the second quarter of 2010 at $11.2 million, as compared to $11.9 million reported for the same quarter of 2009; net loss for the second quarter was $1.4 million, or $0.06 loss per share, compared to a net loss of $2.2 million, or $0.09 per share, for the comparable quarter of last year.

Gross margin for the second quarter 2010 was $2.0 million, or 18 percent of revenue, compared to $2.8 million, or 23 percent of revenue for the same period last year.

“As expected, the second quarter has been a transitional quarter. We continued to execute on our four key initiatives to drive sales in our core markets, increase margins and improve our performance in the second half of 2010,” Clark Hickock, CEO of Axesstel, stated in the press release.

Hickock said the company is preparing to commercially launch its re-engineered, lower cost lines of phones and modems; expand broadband modem sales in North America; increase sales of 3G data and VoIP gateways in Europe; and expects to realize approximately $4 million of annualized operating expense savings in 2010, a reduction of more than 20 percent compared to last year.

For the six months ended June 30, 2010, the company reported revenue of $26.7 million, as compared to $25.6 million for the first half of 2009; net loss for the first half of 2010 was $2.8 million, or $0.12 per share, compared to a net loss of $4.4 million, or $0.19 per diluted share, in the prior year’s first half.

As of June 30, 2010, the company had cash and cash equivalents balance of $770,000, compared to $602,000 as of December 31, 2009.
Pat Gray, Axesstel’s CFO, said the company believes it is set to achieve a solid second half of 2010, backed by efforts made on the backend.

“We believe our cost savings and financing activities have positioned us well for the second half of the year. Second quarter operating expenses were at the lowest level in the past five years on a quarterly basis. We completed the transition of our research and development activities to China ahead of schedule, which will further reduce operating expenses in the second half of the year. We continue to target profitability at approximately $60 million of annual revenue, subject to gross margins returning to the low twenties,” Gray stated.

Carbon Sciences, Inc. (CABN) Successfully Synthesizes Proprietary Raw Catalyst Needed for Making Gasoline Without the Use of Crude Oil

Carbon Sciences Inc. is developing a breakthrough, patent pending carbon dioxide-based gas-to-liquids technology to transform greenhouses gases into liquid fuels such as gasoline and other fuels. The company announced on August 9, 2010 the successful synthesis of a proprietary raw catalyst which is a major and essential step toward demonstrating commercial feasibility of the technology.

The gas-to-liquids (GTL) process is a complimentary refinery process that converts natural gas and other gaseous hydrocarbons into “longer-chain” hydrocarbons such as gasoline. The major challenge in carbon dioxide-based gas-to-liquids reactions is the activation of stable carbon dioxide and methane molecules. Carbon Sciences’ novel and proprietary catalyst provides a simpler and cleaner route by activating these stable molecules and converting them to gasoline.

Gas-to-liquid reactions are regulated through temperature, concentration, pressure and contact time. The company’s catalyst accelerates these reactions, enabling them to be carried out under the most favorable thermodynamic regime and at much lower temperature and pressure.

A fully active and stable catalyst will be key to the success of Carbon Sciences’ breakthrough technology. The CEO of the company, Byron Elton, said “Our catalyst, in conjunction with an optimized reactor and total plant design, will be the key factors in reducing both the capital and operating costs of our next generation GTL technology.”

Carbon Sciences estimates that they can produce 138 billion gallons of gasoline a year (the amount used in the US annually) with 23 trillion cubic feet of natural gas and 586 million tons of carbon dioxide without using crude oil or competing with current natural gas consumption. The exciting news of this breakthrough pushed the stock price up significantly today and it is among the most actively traded stocks in the OTCBB market.

VizStar, Inc. (VIZS) Offers Customers and Investors a Unique Competitive Mix

VizStar Inc., DBA Celestial Jets, is a premier aviation charter broker focused on delivering a new and unparalleled way to experience private jet travel. It allows its customers to remove virtually every negative aspect from the travel experience, saving time, money, and inconvenience, without the restrictions imposed by its competitors. Customers can be picked up from any location, taken directly to their waiting plane, flown non-stop to anywhere in the world, and driven to their final destination. No airport hassles, no waiting, and with a host of optional luxury services. But the real strength of the company rests in its unique mix of market position, offerings, and business model.

• Although competitor NetJets, a subsidiary of Berkshire Hathaway, has greater economic resources, VizStar has greater flexibility and cost efficiency since it does not directly own or operate aircraft. It works mainly through a network of independent contractors.
• VizStar claims the ability to save customers up to 50% on their charter flights when compared to fractional ownership companies, such as NetJets.
• Customers can charter flights on what is called a “one-off” basis, not being required to commit to a minimum number of flight hours as in the case with competitor Marquis Jets.
• The company delivers unmatched service, without requiring up-front membership or initiation fees, capital investment, or long term contracts.
• The company is a member in good standing with Aviation Research Group U.S. (an agency that rates aircraft operational safety), as well as Wyvern (an aircraft operator safety auditing firm), and the National Air Transportation Association (the national trade association for general aviation service companies).
• Another distinctive plus for the company is the fact that it’s the first certified minority-controlled private jet brokerage company in the country, opening itself up to a variety of clients who may be sensitive to minority issues. They even donate 2% of all flight card purchases to medical research and humanitarian causes.

Although it is clear that VizStar still has a long way to go to catch the biggest players, the company’s business plan includes a multi-faceted program to build revenue. As a good indication of their success, it is now the fastest growing premier aviation charter broker.

CPS Technologies Corp. (CPSH) Announces Results for 2010 Second Quarter

Yesterday, CPS Technologies Corporation announced revenue of $5.2 million and net income of $450 thousand, or $0.04 per basic share and $0.03 per diluted share, for the fiscal quarter ended June 26, 2010. This compares with revenue of $3.6 million and net income of $66 thousand, or $0.01 per basic and diluted share, for the fiscal quarter ended June 27, 2009.

Revenue under the Company’s Cooperative Agreement with the Army for development of armor was down in Quarter 2, 2010 compared to Quarter 2, 2009. This was due to the timing of specific tasks. Technical progress in this area continues to be very positive for the Company.

Net income increased 581 percent in Quarter 2, 2010 compared to Quarter 2, 2009. This was because of increased demand and improving manufacturing efficiencies. Net income increased sequentially in Quarter 2, 2010 from Quarter 1, 2010 due to reduced reliance on overtime. CPS Technologies Corporation has hired personnel in their manufacturing facility throughout the first half of the year in order to reduce their reliance on overtime.

Grant Bennett, President of CPS Technologies Corporation, said, “We are indeed pleased with the 44% increase in revenues in Q2 2010 compared to the same period a year ago. Demand has been very volatile over the last two years because of the economic environment; we believe the Q2 2010 demand does represent real, underlying and sustainable demand rather than fluctuations relating to inventory adjustments or other economic factors.”

Headquartered in Norton, Massachusetts, CPS Technologies Corporation is a provider of advanced material solutions and products, particularly combinations of metals and ceramics. These are used in high-power, high-reliability applications. These applications are in the mainstream of the growing movement towards alternative energy and “green” lifestyles. The Company’s management believes underlying demand for these applications is growing and that CPS Technologies Corporation is well positioned to capture that growth.

The Company’s products provide both higher performance and improved efficiency in the use or generation of energy. Their primary advanced material solution is metal matrix composites (MMCs). These are a class of materials, which have several superior properties compared to conventional materials including improved thermal conductivity, thermal expansion matching, higher stiffness and lighter weight.
