ALISO VIEJO, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2007 -- Joystar, Inc. (OTCBB: JYSR), one of the nation's largest and fastest growing leisure travel networks and leading seller of cruises and vacations, today announced Dutton Associates analyst, Richard West, CFA, upgraded his rating for Joystar to Strong Speculative Buy. The research note reads as follows:

Joystar Inc. (OTCBB: JYSR $0.82)
Research Note
Industry: Leisure & Entertainment
Rating: Strong Speculative Buy
Price Target: $1.50
By: Richard W. West, CFA
Joystar Inc. SEC Form 10KSB Filing Results Affected by Non-Recurring Charge; Revenue Increased 257% and Gross Bookings Increased 316%; Reinstating Strong Speculative Buy Rating.

Joystar Inc.'s (OTCBB: JYSR) SEC Form 10KSB reported operating results for FY2006. This is one of those times when conservative accounting practices and resultant non-recurring charges obfuscate the positive progression of results. Based on our normalization process and the new reserve revenue increase of 257% and the gross bookings increased of 316%, we are reinstating our Strong Speculative Buy Rating and our 12-month price target of $1.50 per share.
