Stock Trading Report for Monday: PLTG! January 14, 2008

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

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - January 14, 2008) - Stock Market Alerts' performance stock list includes: Platina Energy Group, Inc. (OTCBB: PLTG), USANA Health Sciences, Inc. (NASDAQ: USNA), Gran Tierra Energy Inc. (OTCBB: GTRE) and Apple Inc. (NASDAQ: AAPL).

Having reported positive revenues for the 2007 final quarter, 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 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.

This could be good news for investors! "We had postponed pipeline connections on this field for the first two completed wells until these negotiations were finalized. Ironically, our decision to do so coincided with end user pipeline maintenance and expansion work. In addition to significant benefit for shareholders, this strategic move also eliminated potential dissent over the actual production amounts by waiting a few more days," commented Blair Merriam, President of Platina Energy.

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 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.

Watch this company closely! The company also reported this week that it has met its promise to achieve positive revenues from oil sales for the third (3rd) fiscal quarter ending December 31, 2007.

This is additional great news for the company as the press release states that accordingly, the Company is on track to be operationally profitable within the next few months as previously forecasted by management!

"Thanks to expedited oil sales at record prices, we managed to have significant revenues for the Company for the quarter resulting in our largest revenues from operations in the corporate history. Although we are well on our way to profitability, we met our first financial revenue milestone promise to shareholders relative to revenue production for the quarter just ending. We are confident that operational profitability is fast approaching and will grow exponentially going forward," stated Blair Merriam, President of Platina Energy.

The stock closed Friday at around Nineteen cents a share.
