Investment Alerts: AXTG! October 15, 2007

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Stock Market Alerts.

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - October 15, 2007) - Stock Market Alerts' performance stock list includes: Axis Technologies Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AXTG), InfoSonics Corporation (NASDAQ: IFON), W. R. Grace & Co (NYSE: GRA), Applied Materials, Inc. (NASDAQ: AMAT).

Axis Technologies Group, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AXTG) is at it again this morning, and investors are going to want to monitor the stock closely! This morning, the company, who's patented energy-saving and daylight harvesting electronic dimming ballasts is continuing to gain widespread acceptance, issued a press release announcing that the company's proprietary Dimming/Daylight Harvesting (DDH) Ballast has met all necessary requirements and is now included with other energy-saving products in a green energy rebate program offered by New York State Energy Research and Development Authority (NYSERDA) valued at $37 million.

This could be good news for the company, as the press release states that NYSERDA's current five-year operating plan includes a total of $436.3 million in energy reduction incentives. One such program titled the Permanent Demand Reduction Program includes rebates for certain products that reduce electrical demand during summer weekday afternoons.

Installing energy-efficient lighting products that permanently reduce power consumption, such as the Axis DDH Ballast, will enable businesses to become eligible for these rebates and incentives. Axis Technologies, Inc. and NYSERDA will offer technical assistance to help evaluate energy-efficiency measures and provide guidance on incorporating new and emerging energy-efficient technologies within commercial buildings and other facilities. According to 2003 U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) statistics U.S. buildings consume 39 percent of our nation's primary energy and 70 percent of electricity.

"Axis Technologies is elated about the rebate incentives coming from NYSERDA and their commitment to energy efficiency. We discovered that utilizing the full benefit of the lighting rebate programs for our Axis DDH Ballasts in the State of New York would make our products virtually free of cost to the end user. We look forward to seeing a substantial increase in orders as more businesses learn of the rebate program," said Jim Erickson, President of Axis Technologies, Inc.

Continue to watch this company who also announced last week that it has received the first of an expected steady flow of orders to meet Energy Innovation Group's projected requirements through the balance of 2007. The press release stated the initial order, in excess of $55,000, from Energy Innovation Group, LLC (EIG) (www.energyinnovation.net), headquartered in Culver City, CA, is to support imminent projects by EIG in the retrofit market in California for the Axis Dimming/Daylight Harvesting (DDH) fluorescent ballasts.

The company's stock closed at $1.23 a share.

Axis Technologies Group, Inc. has developed an innovative new ballast, an electronic component that regulates voltage in fluorescent lighting, that focuses on expanding daylight harvesting into mainstream fluorescent lighting applications. The patented Axis Dimming/Daylight Harvesting Ballast is a new technology that transforms the ballast, a once standard lighting industry staple, into a dynamic energy-saving system that can reduce lighting energy costs by up to 70%. The Axis DDH Ballast utilizes an individual photo sensor to automatically adjust the amount of electrical current flowing to the light fixture, and then dims or increases lighting in conjunction with the amount of available sunlight that may be harvested from available windows and sunlight. The Axis DDH Ballast avoids "over-lit" conditions that increase energy costs by keeping lighting "tuned" to the desired level in a designated area.
