Wall Street News Alert: Hot Stock Alert Issued on ERUG! August 22, 2006

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

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 22, 2006 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUG), Pfizer Incorporated (NYSE: PFE), Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE: BMY) and HCA (NYSE: HCA).

News of the Analyst report on ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUG) may make the company a target of aggressive investors and day traders this morning! Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing the release of a major independent analyst report by OTC Value Watch that places ERUG at Fifty-One cents a share.

Details of the report should get the attention of investors! "We are very proud of this detailed report that has analyzed all facets of our company," said Jerry Miller upon the release of the report. The report further details an intermediate term price of $0.51 with an emphasis on the fact that the company has zero debt, and an aggressive growth rate.

Continue to watch this company! Concerning the company's growth strategy, the report states that "Since the company's initial public offering in 2001, ER Urgent Care's management has successfully implemented a three-point strategy for growth: (1) continued development of high-margin Urgent Care Centers, (2) expansion into other promising markets, and (3) being providers to insurance companies. Already ERUG is a provider for Amerigroup, Avmed, Humana, Aetna, Hip/Vista Beacon, Medicaid/Medipass/Medi-Kids, Total Health Choice, United Health Care, Corvel, Health Insurance Plan and many more. At the current low price of $0.15 per share, we believe that ERUG possesses key characteristics that should command a premium in the small-cap sector. The company has pioneered what we believe is a unique business model focused on the medical field. This strategy has succeeded in the market segments in which the company competes. ER Urgent care has set up full service pharmacies in all its centers which allow them to become part of the PHD network. Because of these types of plans and because they have zero debt, we believe that management is developing a credible plan to improve operating efficiencies and drive organic revenue growth, and that these initiatives will become increasingly apparent in the future results. The bottom line is the company is filling a major void in healthcare with its accessibility and availability after hours, weekends and holidays for ER patients."

Wall Street News Alert is continuing to place Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of ER Urgent Care Centers! The report also concludes that "Unlike high-debt companies that have limited room to maneuver, a debt-free company's growth-rate reflects the unforced, natural expansion of the businesses. Debt-free companies have the full financial flexibility to respond to changing economic conditions. ERUG has this luxury and the ability to pursue growth opportunities both internally and through expansion, utilizing its strong financial condition and its ability to generate internal cash flow. If their business plan is followed successfully and their concept continues to be greeted favorably (and it should), we see a very positive effect on the company's bottom line." More details of the report may be found in the company's press release.

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

Market Commentary:

"Iran is defiant over the U.N.'s request to stop nuclear testing and uranium enrichment, saying this weekend they will continue to enhance their nuclear facilities for energy production. This sparked an international outcry and lead to higher oil prices, experts say. The price for oil by midday was up by 51 cents or $71.65 per barrel. Gold rose as well, up by $12.80 or $634.50 an ounce; the dollar was weaker against the yen and euro, but just slightly," stated Sonja Rudd in Wall Street News Alert's daily commentary continued at:
