Wall Street News Alert: Hot Stock Alert Issued on HEGP! October 19, 2006

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

WESTON, FL--(Marketwire - October 19, 2006) - Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Heartland Energy Group Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HEGP), Ford Motor Company (NYSE: F), Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) and Duke Energy (NYSE: DUK).

Heartland Energy Group Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HEGP) may be a target of aggressive investors and day traders this morning! Yesterday after the stock markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that that it has received the first shipment of ethanol production equipment from Dogwood Energy, LLC.

News of the shipment should get the attention of investors! As part of a previously signed agreement, Heartland Energy will exclusively sell and market Dogwood's full line of ethanol stills and related ethanol products in the Louisiana territory. In addition, the agreement grants Heartland Energy, first option rights to the territories of Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma.

Continue to watch this company! Under the agreement Flex Fuel America, Heartland Energy's product sales and marketing subsidiary, will represent Dogwood's full line of products including the home and farm based ethanol still, Bio-Diesel Production kit, and several ancillary alternative energy related products. Ethanol can be produced through a home-based distilling process utilizing ethanol stills. These stills enable the annual production of ten thousand gallons of ethanol for home-based stills and ten million gallons for larger commercial based stills.

Wall Street News Alert is placing Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of Heartland Energy! Roy Thornhill President of Heartland Energy Group, Inc. stated that: "Since the receipt of our first shipment, we've received an overwhelming consumer response in relation to our full product line. In addition, The Alexandria Town Talk, a local newspaper, has published our progress on their front page and has commended our rapid progress. I'm pleased with our direction and ability to be at the forefront of ethanol marketing."

The growing interest in ethanol, a clean, corn-based renewable resource, has paralleled the escalating price of gas and the urgent need to break the country's dependence on crude oil. Recently, the Big Three automobile manufacturers, GM, Ford, and DaimlerChrysler, appealed to Congress for incentives to increase the number of gas stations that offer blends of ethanol. Last year, Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates pumped $84 million into Pacific Ethanol. Sir Richard Branson, chairman of the Virgin Group and worth an estimated $3 Billion, has plans to invest $300 to $400 million to produce and market this alternative fuel. Vinod Khosla, "guru" of Silicon Valley, co-founder of Sun Microsystems, and one of ethanols most vocal advocates, has personally invested millions in private companies involved in the development of ethanol.

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