Stock Watch: POSC Is on the Move! April 12, 2006

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

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 12, 2006 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Positron Corporation (OTC BB: POSC), Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd. (NASDAQ: TEVA), Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ) and Bausch & Lomb (NYSE: BOL).

Based on the company's new product announcement, Positron Corporation (OTC BB: POSC) may be on the screen of aggressive investors and day traders this morning! Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that it has finalized an agreement with the University of Texas at Houston and the Weatherhead PET Center headed by Dr. K. Lance Gould granting Positron a license to develop and commercialize an integrated comprehensive software system developed for the major diagnostic and management needs in coronary artery disease.

News of the license to develop and commercialize should get the attention of investors! The software system includes the validated quantification of coronary blood flow images by PET Longitudinal Gradient Analysis and Homogeneity Algorithm (LGA/HA) to determine severity of coronary disease as the objective non-invasive basis for or against coronary bypass surgery or stent procedures and the automated objective analysis of CT or invasive coronary angiograms and a comprehensive database management system. The addition of the LGA/HA enables the Positron device to identify early coronary artery disease before clinically significant blockages develop. The quantitative accuracy provides non-invasive follow-up of treatment effectiveness in long-term studies documenting the prevention, stabilization or reversal of coronary artery disease in most patients. The Coronary Arteriographic Tree analysis program integrates 35 years of fluid dynamic research into automated quantification of the entire coronary artery tree for diffuse atherosclerosis as well as multiple blockages in all coronary arteries and branches on a CT or invasive coronary arteriogram. It therefore avoids the common visual overestimation of severity that leads to unnecessary bypass surgery or angiogram catheter procedures. The basis for these three applications has been proven in high quality scientific journals including Circulation, the Journal of the American College of Cardiology, the Journal of Nuclear Medicine and the Journal of Nuclear Cardiology.

Continue to watch this company! This integrated clinical software bundle is an essential part of Positron's product solutions that further differentiates Positron from larger PET manufactures through its superior integrated cardiac PET products in the growing cardiac PET market.

Investors should continue to research the progress of Positron! In conjunction with Positron's software R&D efforts, the Company also announced the release of Positron version A3.7 software. Griff Miller, EVP of Software and IT of Positron stated, "The release of A3.7 is the culmination of more than a decade of data and up-to-date development based on the demands of the PET imaging industry and feedback from our customers and Positron's application specialists."

Wall Street News Alert is continuing to place Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of Positron! Joseph Oliverio, President of Positron, stated, "The addition of these software systems signifies a critical piece to our further development of state of the art technology and the execution of our business plan. Our comprehensive integrated hardware-software package for total cardiac solutions are ideal for hospitals wanting to differentiate their diagnostic and therapeutic services from competing traditional heart surgery centers. With this software we can bridge the prior critical deficiencies with our integrated quantification of coronary anatomy by CTA, myocardial perfusion and heart function by PET imaging. The release of A3.7 and with the enhancements for quantification will allow Positron users to compete for cholesterol lowering drug trails that assess coronary artery disease reversal thanks to the success Dr. K. Lance Gould has demonstrated using the software as proven in high quality scientific journals."

Prior to the latest press release, the stock closed yesterday at Thirteen cents a share.

"The cable companies are looking for ways to expand their usage and shrink your wallet. Cable executives are trying to get viewers to use key-services like on-demand viewing more often. Both CBS and NBC signed deals this year with Comcast to offer replays of hit shows for 99 cents. ABC has yet to sign a deal, but with hit shows like 'Lost,' 'Desperate Housewives' and 'Grey's Anatomy' on-demand is looking good," stated Sonja Rudd in Wall Street News Alert's daily commentary continued at:
