Investment Alerts: PLTG! January 23, 2008

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

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - January 23, 2008) - Stock Market Alerts' performance stock list includes: Platina Energy Group Incorporated (OTCBB: PLTG), Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL), Oracle (NASDAQ: ORCL), The Home Depot (NYSE: HD).

Platina Energy Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PLTG) should continue to have the attention of investors looking to possibly benefit from the energy sectors! This morning, the company, a fast growing E & P Company, issued a press release announcing the completion of a new field acquisition in Laurel and Whitney Counties in Kentucky.

This could be good news for investors! Owned 100% by Platina's newly formed Kentucky subsidiary, the Company plans to expand current production through a combination of reworking existing wells coupled with the potential of over 100 new drilling sites. The press release states that this proven producing developmental field is primarily natural gas with existing pipeline infrastructure commanding premium pricing to NYMEX because of high BTU content.

Blair Merriam, President of Platina, commented, "After extensive due diligence, cost and forecasting analysis, the prospects of this acquisition far exceeded our expectations and allow our local office to support the property development. We will also be spending resources on complete reserve analysis very shortly. Our intention is to secure additional debt financing for the continued development of this prospect for 2008 and beyond. We have already mobilized activity to begin the initial rework program on the field."

Watch this company closely! The company also reported last week that it has secured debt financing for $1,500,000.00 to triple its previous working interests across its Devonian Shale Field. This replaces previous joint venture financing for further development of the property.

The company expects to drill and complete four additional wells with this debt facility on the Tennessee prospect. As previously reported, the Company will continue development of other fields using other financial arrangements. Platina will subsequently apply for expansion of this facility or replace it with a larger one based on future current field production.

The stock closed Tuesday at around Seventeen cents a share.
