Wall Street News Alert: Investment Alert: HRAL, November 2, 2007

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

WESTON, FL--(Marketwire - November 2, 2007) - Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: HearAtLast Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HRAL), DENTSPLY International (NASDAQ: XRAY), Schlumberger Limited (NYSE: SLB) and PATTERSON-UTI ENERGY, INC. (NASDAQ: PTEN).

Having announced yesterday that it has received a license from Wal-Mart Canada, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Wal-Mart International, Inc., to open their first hearing-aid clinic to be co-located inside a Sam's Club location, HearAtLast Holdings, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: HRAL) should have investor's attention.

The company, a chain of hearing stores specializing in the sale of digital hearing aids and testing services, has issued a press release early this morning announcing that it has launched an exclusive new line of MP3 earphone products based on the patented custom technology from Sonomax Hearing Healthcare, Inc.

More good news for the company! Custom earbuds have for long been the missing amenity for the discerning members of the IPOD generation as conventional earbuds simply do not fit properly or provide comfort for the average MP3 device user. Often the user will listen to the device at an excessive volume level which can result in inferior or distorted sound reproduction and possibly hearing loss. The poor fit of the standard, "one size fits all" earbuds can result in the user increasing the volume to compensate for background noise.

Sonomax custom earbuds are designed to suit the need of all users from the avid runner, weightlifter, to the music enthusiast. The custom fit is designed to provide greater comfort, reduce background noise as well as allowing the user to listen to music at lower volume. These products will come in a wide array of colors and price points. Customers can have impressions taken in the HearAtLast clinics and get their custom earbuds in about an hour.

"HearAtLast's offering of this earphone represents a new benchmark in performance, comfort, and safety for MP3 users and other audiophiles," said Mr. Nick Laperle, President of Sonomax Hearing Healthcare. "The users of these earphones will be wearing a revolutionary new technology in custom fit ear devices. As developers of the technology which made this breakthrough possible, we at Sonomax are delighted to be joining with HearAtLast in launching a whole new era in personal audio and entertainment.

The stock closed Thursday at $1.73 a share.

November economic numbers are critical along with Fridays employment report form the Labor Department, anything is possible," stated Sonja Rudd in Wall Street News Alert's daily commentary continued at:
