  • OEDV Added to Stocks & Sectors Watch List; Updates on LBAS

    The 21st Century Stocks & Sectors page highlights undiscovered micro-cap companies - typically low-priced companies with market caps of 500 million or less in three key sectors we believe are headed for substantial growth over the next decade: (1) Healthcare; (2) Internet and IT; and (3) energy and environmentally clean technology. Micro-cap companies typically lack Wall Street analyst coverage, and are inefficiently priced and/or often thinly trading the proverbial “tree in the forest.”

    ADDITIONS

    We are adding Osage Exploration and Development, Inc (OEDV: OTCBB) to our watch list and have added a landing page for OEDV on our website’s Stocks & Sectors section under Energy.

     

    Osage Exploration and Development, Inc (OEDV: OTCBB) is an independent oil and gas company with operations in the US and South America. The company's current focus is on developing its Horizontal Mississippian block along the Nemaha Ridge in Logan County, Oklahoma, with its partners Slawson Exploration, and U.S. Energy Development Corp.

     

    Located in Oklahoma and Kansas, the Mississippian region is currently one of the hottest regions for oil development activity. The area has a long history of production activity from vertical wells, and has a well-developed infrastructure system to support development. The industry is developing the area using the horizontal drilling that has proven effective in shale plays across North America. 

     

    The region has captured the attention of the industry with a number of big oil players including, SandRidge Energy (NYSE:SD), Chesapeake Energy (NYSE:CHK), Devon Energy (NYSE:DVN) and PetroQuest Energy (NYSE:PQ), and is also acquiring acreage and drilling wells. Sandridge has already been successful drilling over 100 wells at a production cost of less than $10 per barrel.

     

    On May 26, 2011, the Company announced that it had closed a carve-up agreement, whereby Slawson Exploration Company, Inc. and U.S. Energy Development Corporation have acquired 45% and 30% respectively of Osage's Mississippian block project in Oklahoma for gross consideration of $4,875,000.00, with both Slawson and U.S. Energy footing the bill on the first three horizontal Mississippian wells.

     

    Osage announced yesterday that it increased its land position targeting the Mississippian Lime in the Nemaha Ridge project to 20,000 – up from 12,000 net acres.  Osage also announced the commencement of the drilling of its first salt water disposal well on the Company's prospect by Slawson Exploration Company - the Operator and 45% owner of the project.  Osage retains 25% ownership while a third partner, US Energy Development Corporation, owns 30%.

     

    The fact that Osage was able to get Slawson - with a long track record having drilled over 3,500 wells in the US, since 1957, including the red hot Bakken play in North Dakota - to pay more than twice what they paid for their acreage and front production cost indicates a strong probability of financial windfall. On a technical basis, we could be seeing new highs in the near term as we get news from its first well and on future announcements. We would want to see both expanded volume and the stock staying above its 50-day moving average:

     

    Osage's operations in South America include, the Guaduas Field and our interest in the Guaduas-La Dorada pipeline in Colombia. OEDV is partners with Pacific Rubiales Energy - the largest Colombian independent oil and gas company - in both of these ventures. Both projects continue to provide cash flow to Osage.

     

    Updates

    We added Location Based Technologies, Inc (LBAS: OTCBB) to our watch list on August 1, 2011. We did so based on the rationale that the Company was entering its growth phase, following three announcements: 1- that they had an agreement with America Movil for PocketFinder distribution throughout Latin America, 2 - that they entered in a manufacturing relationship with Jabil Circuit, Inc. (NYSE:JBL) for volume production of the PocketFinder® devices, and 3 - that they had completed a $10,000,000 financing with Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC and Think Equity LLC.

     

    The stock proceeded to run more than 150% in a period of a little more than two weeks, causing us to get nervous. After the stock traded at a more than 400% premium to its 200-day moving average, we got nervous, and correctly predicted that the stock would pull back into the $.27-$.35 .

     

    The Company rollout continues, and last month LBAS announced that the PocketFinder® devices are now available for purchase exclusively at Apple Retail Stores. The also announced that mobile users can now download the company’s iOS 5-compatible PocketFinder® Personal GPS Locators and GPS Vehicle Locator apps for iPhone™, iPad® and iPod® - Touch-free from Apple’s App Store. 

     

    With the recent pull back, and with the stock trading at a slight discount to its 200-day moving average, the current levels may be a much better accumulation point for long-term investors. We have contacted the Company’s management and IR representatives about possibly presenting to our online audience so we can get more color on the Company’s growth plans and guidance for the next few quarters

  • VASO Added to Stocks & Sectors Watch List; Updates on $MITK, TPCS

    21st Century Stocks & Sectors page highlights undiscovered micro-cap companies - typically low-priced companies with market caps of 500 million or less in three key sectors we believe are headed for substantial growth over the next decade: (1) Healthcare; (2) Internet and IT; and (3) energy and environmentally clean technology. Micro-cap companies typically lack Wall Street analyst coverage, and are inefficiently priced and/or often thinly trading the proverbial “tree in the forest.”

    ADDITIONS

    We are adding VasoMedical, Inc (VASO: Pink Sheets) to our watch list and have added a landing page for VASO on our website’s Stocks & Sectors section under Health Care. VASO at the current levels could potentially provide extraordinary returns for all kind of investors. For traders the stock could easily pop 50-100% in the next few weeks, and for investors with a long term orientation of 18-36 months, the stock has the potential to be a 10 bagger.

    Vasomedical, Inc. designs, manufactures, markets, leases, and supports enhanced external counter pulsation (EECP) systems. The EECP therapy system is a non-invasive outpatient therapy for the treatment of diseases of the cardiovascular system. This therapy serves to increase circulation in areas of the heart with less than adequate blood supply and helps to restore systemic vascular function; increases blood flow and oxygen supply to the heart muscle and other organs, and decreases the heart's workload and reduces oxygen demand; and enhances function of the endothelium, the lining of blood vessels throughout the body, and lessening resistance to blood flow.

    There is a strong fundamental story underway at VasoMedical. The Company has been publicly traded since mid 1995. The stocks all time high occurred in early 2000 when it hit $12 per share. VASO has basically been a stagnant one product company, selling exclusively the EECP product. In mid 2007 VASO acquired Living Data Technologies. The acquisition provided VASO with addition EECP products, and came with a visionary CEO, Dr. Jun Ma, with new ideas on how to expand the Company, including developing new markets for the Company’s flag ship EECP product.

    The results are starting to bear fruit, as evidenced by its June 29, 2011 announcement that the Company had received FDA approval to market two Ambulatory ECG and blood pressure devices. Each device has a potential market potential estimated to be in the 150 million +.

    VASO on August 23, 2011, that its wholly-owned subsidiary, Vasomedical Healthcare, has signed an agreement to purchase Life Enhancement Technology Limited and Biox Instruments Co., Ltd., both of which are based in the People’s Republic of China. The purchase agreement for these accretive acquisitions provides for a cash payment at closing of $1,000,000 and the issuance of up to 7,400,000 restricted shares of the Company’s common stock, as well as warrants, part of which issuance is performance based.

    VASO yesterday, August 30, 2011, reported financial results for the fiscal year ended May 31, 2011.  The Company's total revenues were $16.37 million, an increase of $12.17 million, or 289% as compared to revenues of $4.21 million for the last fiscal year.

    While the Company reported an operating loss of approximately $3.93 million for the year, compared to an operating loss of $1.98 million for the prior fiscal year, these losses were largely attributed to the revenue recognition rules applicable to the Company’s VasoHealthcare subsidiary, wherein a part of revenues were deferred.

    As of May 31, 2011, total deferred revenues for the Company were $11.92 million, including $10.81 million for the VasoHealthcare subsidiary, an increase of $10.89 million from $1.03 million for fiscal 2010. The substantial part of this deferred revenue should be recognized as revenue in fiscal 2012.

    The huge backlog bodes well for the next few quarters and could serve as a catalyst to propel the stock substantially higher, especially as the stock potentially approaches profitability in the current fiscal year. The stock closed on Tuesday, August 30, 2011, at $.41 up $.08 or 24.5%for the day. On a technical basis, the stock appears to have broken its downward consolidation pattern, with the stock closing above both its 50 day and 200 day moving average for the first time in almost 4 months, an extremely bullish indicator. We would expect to see new 52 week highs on the stock over the next 1-3 months:


    Updates

    Mitek Systems, Inc (MITK: Nasdaq)— MITK the leader in mobile-imaging applications using smartphone and tablet cameras for check deposits, the stock is up 37.2% from its interday low last Friday August 26, 2011. On Monday August 29, 2011, William Blair, initiated coverage of MITK with an outperform rating. On Wednesday August 31, 2011, the Company announced that CEO James Debello will present at the Blair Conference at the Intercontinental New York Barclay Hotel at 8:00 a.m. EDT on Sept. 8.

    Mitek is a long term core holding and a pure play on the mobile smart phone growth but we would express caution for anyone looking to establish new positions at these levels. The stock is currently being bid up by traders ahead of the William Blair conference and could see some profit taking on the event. We would “back the truck up” on any pullbacks towards its 50 day moving average of $8.44 MITK. The stock closed yesterday at $10.95 up 88.14% since we added it to our watch list on March 7, 2011.


    TechPrecision Corporation (TPCS: OTCBB)--an industry leading manufacturer of precision, large-scale fabricated and machined metal components and systems with customers in the alternative energy , cleantech , medical ,  nuclear, defense, aerospace and other commercial industries, announced on Tuesday August 30, 2011, that it has received a purchase order from a new, European Tier-1 customer for its Wuxi Critical Mechanical Components Co., Ltd., subsidiary to produce high temperature vacuum chambers using advanced mono-crystalline cast technology.

    Initial units from the purchase order will ship from the WCMC division in China during the fourth calendar quarter of 2011. High-volume production is forecasted to begin in first-half calendar 2012. The Company stated on its recent conference call following the 1st quarter earnings release, that they expect at least 4 new Tier-1 customers in the current fiscal year and that they were looking to diversify their customer concentration. Wunderlich securities recently reiterated their buy rating on TPCS with a $4 price target, and they expect Chinese solar demand to return in 2012 following a down year in 2011.

    A close above $1.66 on increasing volume would be confirmation of the continued uptrend and potential for new highs over the next 1-3 months. The stock closed yesterday at $1.60 down 13.51% since we added it to our watch list on June 13, 2011.

  • Stocks & Sectors update: LBAS up 100% from 8/1/11 call bank profits! TPCS intermediate trade $3

    21st Century Stocks & Sectors page highlights undiscovered micro-cap companies - typically low-priced companies with market caps of 500 million or less in three key sectors we believe are headed for substantial growth over the next decade: (1) Healthcare; (2) Internet and IT; and (3) energy and environmentally clean technology. Micro-cap companies typically lack Wall Street analyst coverage, and are inefficiently priced and/or often thinly trading the proverbial “tree in the forest.”

    Update: Location Base Technologies, Inc (LBAS: OTCBB)

    Location Based Technologies (LBAS: OTCBB), designs and develops leading-edge personal locator GPS devices and services that incorporate patented, proprietary technologies designed to enhance and enrich the way businesses and families interact globally. LBAS spiked up 34% to $1.34 on Monday on massive volume of 4,441,041. This morning the stock gapped down at the opening and ended down 29.32% on 5,878,826. The technical action of the stock is very negative and indicates that LBAS has reached an intermediate top and is now attracting the interest of short sellers. Tim Sykes a notorious short seller is aggressively recommending a short after the recent huge run up in LBAS’s stock price.

    The company is currently entering the growth phase of its business, and is rapidly ramping up production. LBAS recently announced a partners with Telcel & America Movil to launch PocketFinder products in Mexico and South American Territories.

    On July 27 the company announced that its first volume production PocketFinder® devices will be manufactured at the San Jose, CA, facility of Jabil Circuit, Inc. (NYSE:JBL) JBL has the capacity to produce up to 1,000,000 units per month.

    On July 28 the company announced that it closed a private placement of 50,000,000 shares of its common stock. The securities were sold to institutional and accredited investors at a price of $0.20 per share. Craig-Hallum Capital Group LLC and Think Equity LLC acted as placement agents for this transaction.

    At the current valuation of approximately $120 million market cap, the market is expecting huge revenue ramp up, with absolutely no room for error. The market is expecting seven and eight figure quarterly announcements and the Company may or may not be able to produce.

    The current price does not justify the company’s existing fundamentals. LBAS is a speculative startup without a history of revenue growth and profitability. Based on yesterday’s closing price of $.94, the stock is extremely extended, and is trading at an almost 400% premium to its 200 day moving average of $.24. The stock is up 100% from our August 1, 2011 trading call, so bank profits on this one, and look for a pull back in the $.27-$.35 area, closer to its 50 and 200 day moving averages:


    Trade Alert:

    TechPrecision, Corp reported first Quarter Sales up 49% to $9.2 Million Year over Year and 14% Sequentially from the Fourth Fiscal Quarter of 2011

    TechPrecision, Corp (TPCS: OTCBB), a leader in end-to-end fabrication solutions of precision machine components, and is taking advantage of rising global demand for Solar, Clean Tech, and Medical industries, by selling specialized machine tools to companies in the those sectors,. The Company reported its fiscal first quarter of fiscal 2012, for the period ended June 30, 2011, after the close of the market on August 15, 2011and then held its quarterly conference call. To get the details of the Company’s earnings announcement _______.Highlights of the call are as follows:

    The Company reported revenues substantially above consensus estimates but earnings were off slightly, due to onetime investments in qualifying new WCMC Chinese facility.

    The investment caused margins to slip, as a result of the fact the Company needed to add additional capacity in anticipation of its revenue ramp up.

    Management deemed the quarterly report as a “transitional” based on the fact that substantial investments were made in the Company’s WCMC Chinese subsidiary, in an effort to add new production capacity.

    Management anticipates that general and administration expenses, on a going forward basis, will remain at the current levels.

    The Company shipped its initial units that qualified WCMC to deliver higher volumes of production in starting in the 2nd quarter

    Management described the current quarter as a “breakout” quarter in anticipation of its expected revenue ramp up.

    Management believes that the potential capacity of WCMC is approximately $30 million.

    Once the capacity is maxed out they could ramp up additional capacity in approximately four months.

    The fact that management has identified additional potential future sites, and planning additional production capacity, bodes well for Techprecision’s long term future.

    Near Term Revenue Opportunity

    TechPrecision announced on August 15, 2011, that it had received a purchase order for its WCMC subsidiary to produce high-temperature vacuum chambers for Sapphire manufacturing equipment. Initial units of the order will ship from the WCMC division in China in September and October of 2011 and high volume production is forecasted to begin during calendar 2012.

    TechPrecision announced on July 19, 2011, that it has promoted Christopher Poplaski to president of  WCMC, to support the growing demand for production volumes from the WCMC Division. He will be based at the Wuxi operation effective July 25.

    TechPrecision announced on July 12, 2011, announced that its  WCMC division has received an order for a new generation of polysilicon material production equipment from a new Tier-1 customer. This represents the third strategic tier-1 customer signed by WCMC since it was formed in October of 2010. 

    The initial order for two beta units is expected to ship by the third quarter of fiscal 2012. Projections from the customer indicate annual requirements of more than 250 units beginning in January 2012 based upon success of the first two units.

    TechPrecision announced on July 7, 2011, that it had receives $1.2 million order from the nuclear division of existing customer

    Potential Near Term Catalyst

    Both Wunderlich Securities and Singular Research, each recently reiterated their buy ratings, with price targets of $4 and $4.50 respectively.

    Potential NASDAQ application and listing could propel the stock substantially higher. The Company currently qualifies to list it shares on NASDAQ, with the exception of the required $3 stock price.

    A close above $1.66 on increasing volume would be confirmation of the continued uptrend and potential for new highs over the next 1-3 months. The stock closed yesterday at $1.60 down 13.51% since we added it to our watch list on June 13, 2011.
