Investment Tips for Aggressive Traders! August 22, 2006

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

MIAMI, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 22, 2006 -- Stock Market Alert's performance stock list includes: Winning Brands Corporation (PINKSHEETS: WNBD), Lowe's Companies, Inc. (NYSE: LOW), The Home Depot Inc. (NYSE: HD), Verizon Communications (NYSE: VZ).

Winning Brands Corporation (PINKSHEETS: WNBD) released news that should have the attention of speculative investors this morning. Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that that Home Hardware, Canada's largest hardware, lumber and building materials retailer, has awarded a new listing to Winning Colours Multi-Cleaner's new 4 oz (125ml) Travel Size version.

This news may get the attention of traders. With over 1,000 banner stores across Canada, the listing will provide the Company's first Winning Colours Multi-Cleaner line extension with immediate coast-to-coast coverage for an effective ramp-up. Home Hardware was first off the starting line with this new SKU because of its positive experience with the full sized Winning Colours product -- it was the first national retailer to carry the original 32 oz size. According to the press release, Winning Brands estimates the North American market for Winning Colours Multi-Cleaner to be $100 million annually across its eventual SKU range.

This is a stock for speculative investors to watch! Winning Brands Corporation CEO Eric Lehner points out the importance of working with large groups of independent stores. "The reach into smaller communities provided by Home Hardware complements our presence in large cities for a good mix," says Lehner. "To become a national brand you need to offer the product where people live, with knowledgeable sales staff to answer their questions face-to-face when necessary," he added.

In the past several days, Winning Brands has made several announcements, including:

--  Winning Colours Multi-Cleaner brand was scheduled to make its U.S.
    debut on QVC® this pasted Friday during the "Household Helpers" program.
    Previously, Winning Brands Corporation reported the commencement of
    shipment of its products to other markets outside North America, notably in
    Europe, China and India, giving the company effective representation on
    three continents beginning in the third quarter 2006.
    
--  The company's Solvent Free Solutions partnership with Miele USA has
    been awarded a new contract to outfit Naples, Florida Diamond Cleaners with
    a professional garment care technology that may rescue a multi-billion
    dollar industry facing new regulations. The new system replaces hazardous
    chemicals still used by conventional Dry Cleaners, whose old
    Perchloroethylene solvent days may be numbered.
    
--  Winning Colours Multi-Cleaner, has been approved for distribution
    through PRO Group, Inc. -- America's largest independent hardlines group
    representing 40 member distributors with 162 warehouses that service
    approximately 30,000 retailers.
