1. Alas Signs Financing Agreement..
We had an opportunity to meet with Peter Villiotis CEO of ALAS owned SAENZ Corp., in his Ft. Lauderdale office located at the Broward Shipyards (BSI). BSI is the most accessible deep water shipyard in Ft Lauderdale, for Megayachts up to 190 feet in length.
If there is a recession going on, we surely couldn't tell by the size and beauty of the boats docked there.
Peter has designs, in addition to his current plans of bringing three ships from Europe to the Caribbean, to launch a Yacht charter and cruise business. These plans include acquiring additional vessels and creating a prototype mid-sized ship, powered by electric propulsion. He is a proven visionary.

Yesterday, the company announced an agreement with the International Lending Group to secure a $6 million loan to be used for repositioning of vessels, the expansion of operations and funds toward the acquisition of a new vessel.
While the shares are still trading by appointment, we remain of the opinion -- that the shares could undergo a rather quick "re-valuation of valuation," with a minimal amount of sustained investor interest. As an example, last Thursday -- the shares opened at $0.10 and traded to $0.14 on a mere 37,000 shares. The following day, the shares traded to $0.18 on 118,000. How often do you see that ?
There is not too much to read into that though, other than there does not seem to be any sellers -- waiting in the wings for any buyers. Which is a considerably more comforting situation, than seeing a company trade 12 or 15 million shares -- unchanged. Now that's spooky.
By the way, did anyone notice Vertex Energy (VTNR) hit $4.00 yesterday? That's our first stock to join the elusive "ten bagger" club this year -- in under a year. Documented of course, as is everything we do.
Adding Vertex to Watch List: http://alternativeenergystockreview.ning.com/profiles/blogs/ia-adding-vertex-energy-vtnr
The analogy we're trying to draw here, is that Vertex was trading by appointment (and still does with only 30,000 trading yesterday) when we added it to the Watch List at $0.40 last August. In fact the day we added it to the list, it only traded 5,000 shares and had a bid and ask, wide enough to dive a 140 Mega-yacht though it. Which brings us back to ALAS International (VDSC).

Going Concern Statements.
We would like to point out that the majority of companies listed on the
OTC Bulletin Board have factors which create an
uncertainty about the their ability to continue as a going concern. These
concerns are typically related to financing (or lack of), competitive
environments, lack of operating history and operating at loss levels which
is typical of most start-ups.
These statement can usually be found in their most recent 10Q filings and
typically you don't have to dig to far down past the financial tables. We
like to use http://www.pinksheets.com for quick and easy access to SEC

companies listed on the OTC Bulletin Board (and many on NASDAQ) have going
Disclaimer: Important Distinction #1. First and foremost the Watch List is
just that. A watch list. It is not a buy list. Meaning that there will be
no buys or sales issued by the Internet Stock Review. If this was a buy
list, you can rest assured that we would crank up our Public Relations arm
into high gear, full speed ahead and damn the torpedoes to make everyone
know just how brilliant we were when we issued the list. Interviews on
CNBC, articles in Barron's and accolades in the Wall Street Journal--the
only thing we love more than money is praise and fame--but it just isn't
going to happen. What the Internet Stock Review is...is a "news
aggregation service". With the advent of the Internet, everyone knows what
that term means. What it means to us is the following: We will follow the
progress of as many Internet related publicly traded stocks as humanly
possible (The large, the small and the minuscule) and advise you of when
they have reported news. As a subscriber to the Internet Stock Review,
this means you will be able to broadly follow the entire industry right
from a single e-mail. We will report who released news and point (with
hyper links) to where the news can be found. We try to use Yahoo! Finance
as extensively as possible so we don't send you all over cyberspace. We
love Yahoo, you will too. Any decisions as to buy or sell however, are
strictly up to you. Which leads to important distinction #2. How do we get
