Stock Watch: Pennsylvania Shows Great Interest in MTNA's Patented EFS Technology! April 11, 2006

NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Wall Street Capital Funding.

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 11, 2006 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Material Technologies, Inc.'s (OTC BB: MTNA), Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO), Time Warner Inc. (NYSE: TWX) and Texas Instruments Incorporated (NYSE: TXN).

Once again, Material Technologies, Inc.'s (OTC BB: MTNA) has released news that should have everyone's attention as the markets begin trading this morning! Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that Pennsylvania has shown great interest in evaluating Matech's patented Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor (EFS) technology on several of their steel bridges.

This is additional great news for the company and should get the attention of investors! State highway departments are very concerned about the conditions of their steel bridges, and are interested in exploring every avenue to improve their maintenance, safety and structural integrity.

The EFS is the only non-destructive testing technology that can find growing cracks in metals, and cracks below the surface, as small as 0.010 inches. This critical information will allow bridge engineers to fix the specific bridges in most need of repair, and also verify that repairs are effective in halting further fatigue crack growth, by determining that previously found fatigue cracks are no longer growing. Being able to prioritize needed repairs by using EFS, significant cost savings can be realized, and the most critical bridges can be repaired sooner, thereby eliminating bridge postings (that is, restricting the weights of some trucks) and minimizing any adverse economic impacts.

Continue to watch this company! Pennsylvania has provided information on three major bridges across the state where fatigue damage is of concern. Matech will plan on the use of EFS for special inspections of these structures. Following an informal visit to each bridge, Matech will prepare and execute a detailed plan for inspection using EFS and recommending amelioration methods.

As additional news is released from the company, Wall Street News Alert is continuing to place Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of Material Technologies! "We expect many more states to approach us this year and we look forward to using our EFS technology to help then to greatly improve their success ratio in focusing repairs on the most structurally damaged bridges," says Robert M. Bernstein, the CEO of Material Technologies, Inc. "This is a very exciting time for us and the bridge industry, as we believe that our patented technology will make a significant contribution to the safety and integrity of the nation's 200,000 metal bridges that come under the Federal inspection mandate."

A system like the MATECH EFS can immediately provide engineers with the verification, with near 100% accuracy, that their implemented repairs are effective and can be expected to provide years of safe operation while creating significant monetary savings over the lifespan of the bridge.

Prior to the latest press release, the stock closed yesterday at Twenty-Nine cents a share.

"Alcoa gave quarterly results and the first-quarter reporting period really kicks-off this week as U.S. companies, analysts and economists predict, will be showing solid results. However, interest rate worries are in the near future; the 10-year Treasury note is at 4.97% and the 30-year note is at 5%, plus the increased cost of oil and energy will be a factor in future earnings. Nationally, the average cost of gasoline is at $2.67 for regular unleaded, up by 17 cents in the last 2 weeks alone," stated Sonja Rudd in Wall Street News Alert's daily commentary continued at:
