Wall Street News Alert: Breaking News Alert! May 10 2006

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

WESTON, FLA. -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 10, 2006 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Material Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: MTNA), Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F), American Airlines, Inc. (NYSE: AMR), & Fluor Corporation (NYSE: FLR).

Once again, Material Technologies, Inc. (OTC BB: MTNA) may have the attention of aggressive investors and day traders this morning as the stock markets open! Yesterday after the markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that its team of engineers has completed informal reviews of three bridges in Pennsylvania at the request of that state's Department of Transportation.

This is good news for the company, as it continues to gain exposure for its breakthrough metal fatigue detection technology that serves a critical need and can be applied in any industry where metal is a significant structural component. The state of Pennsylvania has expressed interest in evaluating MATECH's patented metal fatigue detection solutions to help ensure the structural integrity of its steel bridges.

The bridge visits were conducted in connection with a proposed agreement to inspect several bridges using MATECH's Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor™ (EFS). Pennsylvania provided information on where fatigue damage is of concern to these major bridges. MATECH is planning to use EFS for special inspections of these structures.

Continue to watch this company! EFS uses patented technology to measure fatigue damage in metal structural members, detecting the minutest growing cracks in the metal. It can find growing cracks as small as 0.010 inches. No other current state of the art measurement technologies can detect if a crack is growing or not, and as small as EFS can.

Wall Street News Alert is continuing to place Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of Material Technologies! MATECH has received a great deal of interest from federal and state agencies recently following the passage of the $286 billion Federal Transportation Bill which allocated $5 million to help states evaluate nondestructive methods such as EFS to test growing fatigue cracks in steel bridges.

On Friday the company announced that, in addition to its U.S. listing, it has obtained a listing on the Frankfurt Stock Exchange, the world's third largest securities exchange.

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

There has been serious interest in MATECH's patented metal fatigue detection solutions to help states evaluate non-destructive methods like MATECH's Electrochemical Fatigue Sensor™ (EFS) to detect growing fatigue cracks in steel bridges. The Transportation Equity Act set aside funds for the Federal Highway Administration to evaluate devices capable of finding growing cracks in bridges as small as 0.010 inches in length and also under the surface. MATECH's EFS is the only nondestructive testing method able to meet these conditions.

In case you are not familiar with the company: MATECH is an engineering, research and development company specializing in technologies to monitor metal fatigue in real time. The company's leading edge metal fatigue detection and monitoring solutions can accurately test the integrity of metal structures and equipment including bridges, railroads, airplanes, ships, cranes, power plants, mining equipment, and heavy iron. MATECH owns the only nondestructive testing technology able to find growing cracks as minute as 0.010 inches--critical information that allows structural engineers to isolate and repair the more than 100,000 steel bridges in the U.S. which have been classified as structurally deficient or functionally obsolete by the Federal Highway Administration. MATECH has exclusive rights to seven patents along with $8.3 million in already completed contracts from the US Government for research, testing and validation of its innovative solutions.

Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F) up 2.8% on 31.8 million shares traded. Ford Motor Company is one of the world's largest automakers.

American Airlines, Inc. (NYSE: AMR) up 1.9% on 4.8 million shares traded. American Airlines is one of the largest airline companies

"The metals continue to reach new highs, with gold topping $700 an ounce, silver at $14.36, copper up by 2% to $3.57 an ounce, and platinum in the clouds up by $37.60 or $1239.50. Analysts say that the failure in Iran to settle the nuclear question and the drop in the dollar, off by 0.5% against the yen and euro, sent the commodities upward," stated Sonja Rudd in Wall Street News Alert's daily commentary continued at:
