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 $0.02, down 4.76%, on 513,000 volume with 10 trades. The stock’s average daily volume over the past 60 days is 97,472 with a 52-week low/high of $0.02/$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

IDO Security, Inc. (IDOI), headquartered in New York with a subsidiary in Israel, focuses on developing solutions for shoes-on weapons metal detection. The company's flagship product, the patented MagShoe™ system, instantly and accurately detects metal items concealed on or in footwear, ankles or feet without requiring the removal of shoes. Taking only 3-4 seconds to scan, the detection system solves possibly the most problematic issue in the security checkpoint routine.

The MagShoe is produced at the company's main manufacturing facility in Rishon LeZion, Israel where it offers local sales and support via a worldwide network of industry-leading distributors and system integrators. Designed for security and loss prevention at high-security venues and checkpoints, IDO Security's products are currently in use at international airports, cruise lines, government agencies and other locations requiring strong security.

The company's detection systems employ state-of-the-art sensors and algorithms to detect weapons and other controlled metal articles. By providing accurate measurements, the MagShoe solutions keep false alarms at minimum - detecting potentially dangerous items while ignoring metal typically found in footwear such as heels, zippers and ornaments. The advanced technology reduces the number of manual inspections required, allowing personnel to focus on the real threat.

President and Director Michael L. Goldberg guides the direction of the company with an extensive business and legal background spanning more than 30 years. Prior to joining IDO Security, Mr. Goldberg spent 17 years as the Chairman, CEO and one-time President of RX Medical Services, a medical company that owned and operated small rural hospitals, clinical laboratories and MRI/CT centers across the US. He has served on the boards and as a member of audit and compensation committees for a number of public companies.

True 2 Beauty (TRTB) Targets High-Margin Growth Market

From an investment standpoint, there are few sectors as inviting as the fast growing sexual enhancement market. The potential markups, together with the sheer number of available customers, represents an almost unlimited revenue opportunity.

A case in point is True 2 Beauty, a California based producer of sexual potency products for both men and women. Expanding into markets around the world, the company’s Libigrow product is considered a Fast Moving Consumable Good (FMCG) 2, a low-cost product intended for purchase at regular intervals. Primarily, but not exclusively, targeting consumers in their 20s, the company’s products are distributed online through multiple websites. In addition, they’re building a distribution network via convenience stores, vitamin stores, independent grocers, adult boutique stores, liquor stores, and smoke shops, with the potential of moving into large retail chains. The plan is to build the distribution network through direct relationships, as well as master and wholesale distributors.

Important from a regulatory standpoint, Libigrow, the company’s flagship product, is promoted as being made from 100% natural ingredients, including:

• Cordyceps (mycelium) cordyceps sinensis
• Flat-Stem Milkvetch (seed) astragalus complanatus
• Chinese Dodder (seed) cuscuta chinensis
• Ligustrum (fruit) ligustrum lucidum
• Cnidium (fruit) cnidium monnieri
• Cherokee Rose (fruit) rosa laveigata
• Walnut (nut)
• Dong Quai (root) angelica sinensis
• Astragalus (root) astragalus membranaceus
• Schizandra (fruit) schisandra chinensis
• Korean Ginseng
• Vegetable Magnesium Stearate
• Water
• Vitamin B-6
• L-Arginine
• L-Lysine
• L-Glutamine

But its growth potential is based primarily on its intended benefits:

• Increased sexual desire and confidence
• More powerful erections
• Increased orgasm threshold and intensity
• Assistance with premature ejaculation

With the average American taking some form of dietary supplement every day to promote health and vitality, and the U.S. specialty retail channel for such sales on its way to an expected increase of over 40% from 2008 to 2017, the general sexual enhancement portion of the market is increasingly prominent on investment radar screens.

Fresenius Kabi Pharmaceuticals Holding Inc. (APCVZ) Subsidiary Gets OK from FDA to Market Oncology Product

APP Pharmaceuticals Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of Fresenius Kabi Pharmaceuticals Holding Inc. focused on the development, manufacture and marketing of injectable pharmaceutical products for the oncology, anti-infective, anesthetic and critical care markets.

The company today announced it has received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market Topotecan for Injection. The company said it plans to launch the product immediately and anticipates expanding its position in the oncology arena.

Topotecan for Injection is indicated for use in small cell lung cancer sensitive disease when the first-line of chemotherapy has failed. It has also received clearance for use in combination therapy with Cisplatin for stage IV-B, as well as for recurrent or persistent carcinoma of the cervix.
APP’s Topotecan for Injection will enter the market as one of the first generic injectables of its kind. Topotecan is therapeutically equivalent to GlaxoSmithKline’s currently marketed drug Hycamtin®.


John Ducker, president and CEO of APP, noted the importance of a generic form of the product, as well as its value to APP’s product portfolio. “As one of the first generic entries into the market, APP’s Topotecan for Injection will help reduce the cost of cancer treatment for patients who suffer from cervical and small cell lung cancers,” Ducker stated in the press release. “With the addition of Topotecan for Injection to our growing oncology portfolio, APP continues to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to expanding its presence in the oncology space.”

Fuel Tech, Inc. (FTEK) Awarded Air Pollution Control Orders Totaling $4 Million

Fuel Tech Inc. is a world leader in advanced engineering solutions for the optimization of combustion systems and emissions control in utility and industrial applications. The company’s technologies enable customers to produce both energy and processed materials in a cost-effective and environmentally sustainable manner.

The company today announced receipt of air pollution control orders totaling $4 million. The largest of these orders was placed by a major US power producer. It was for nitrogen oxide (NOx) reduction projects on two coal-fired boilers. These projects will utilize Fuel Tech’s HERT High Energy Reagent Technology and NOxOUT Selective Non-Catalytic Reduction (SNCR) injection technologies.
Equipment deliveries for these projects are scheduled for the third quarter of 2011.

A second order was received for an ULTRA system on a gas-fired unit from a US municipal power plant. This technology provides for the safe and cost-effective on-site conversion of urea to ammonia for use as a reagent in the catalytic reduction of nitrogen oxide. It eliminates the hazards associated with the transport, storage and handling of aqueous ammonia. Equipment delivery is scheduled for the first quarter of 2011.

These orders are part of a larger alliance agreement which the company signed in March 2010. The agreement calls for the potential supply of SNCR systems and related services for multiple coal-fired generating units. The latest orders represent the eighth and ninth order so far for the SNCR system to be received by Fuel Tech since March.
