Another stock that may show some strong potential as the markets begin trading this morning is MEDirect Latino Inc. (OTC: MLTO). Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company, the first national provider of direct-to-consumer Medicare reimbursed medical products focused exclusively on chronic diseases afflicting the Hispanic community, issued a very strong press release announcing record results for January, 2006 in gross billings, new patient shipments and call volume!

These are strong numbers for the company, and type news investors love to hear! MEDirect Latino reports gross billings of $804,949 during the month, a 34.89% increase over December 2005 billings of $596,717. The Company's gross product profit margins remained unchanged at 78%.

The Company's 'patient hold journal' (approved and pending shipment for regulatory processing), closed the month with 4,106 additional customers, an increase of 28% over December 3,213, approved and pending shipment for regulatory processing.

In case you are not familiar with the company: MEDirect Latino (OTC: MLTO) ( is the first national provider of direct-to-consumer Medicare reimbursed medical products focused exclusively on chronic diseases afflicting the Hispanic community. MEDirect Latino is rapidly growing and uniquely positioned to service the Hispanic community in the United States and Puerto Rico. MEDirect is the only company positioned to serve the U.S. Hispanic healthcare market as a direct-to-consumer Medicare provider on an authentically national level. The Company's current focus is the distribution of products for the treatment of Type II diabetes specifically due to the disproportionate impact and increasing diagnosis rate of diabetes within the US Hispanic population, noting an incidence of 120% higher than among non-Hispanic whites. Type II diabetes was also targeted because of its unique status within the Medicare reimbursement regime and because of its high degree of correlation to other chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and heart disease. These other conditions represent considerable future market potential that will allow MEDirect to efficiently scale its model by leveraging its existing client base and infrastructure.

The current Hispanic market for MEDirect's products is conservatively estimated at approximately $748MM in the continental United States. The size of the opportunity is understated by such figures as an estimated 1.2 million of the over 4.1 million Hispanics in the United States over 65 eligible to receive Medicare benefits are currently collecting these benefits with an estimate that over 1.4 million of those Medicare-eligible Hispanics have diabetes (implying a potential continental U.S. market for MEDirect products of approximately $1 billion).

Stocks showing interesting activity yesterday at the close of the regular trading day were: Boston Scientific Corporation (NYSE: BSX) down 0.1% on 13.8 million shares traded, Merck & Co., Inc. (NYSE: MRK) up 1.7% on 9.3 million shares traded, and UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH) down 0.2% on 7.3 million shares traded.


"The Labor Department estimated that worker productivity for the last quarter of 2005 fell by 0.6%, the first downward fall since the 2001 recession. However, unit labor costs for 2005 rose by 3.5%," stated Sonja Rudd in Wall Street News Alert's daily commentary continued at:
