WESTON, FL--(Marketwire - October 4, 2007) - Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Latitude Industries Inc. (PINKSHEETS: LTDI), Panera Bread Company (NASDAQ: PNRA), UTSTARCOM Inc. (NASDAQ: UTSI) and SMART Modular Technologies (NASDAQ: SMOD).

Latitude Industries Inc. (PINKSHEETS: LTDI) should have investors watching the stock as Wall Street News Alert continues coverage of this manufacturer of high-quality, Offshore Sport Fisherman and center console boats. Wednesday after the markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing the appointment of Orlando Hernandez as Chief Operating Officer.

This could be great news for the company, which also recently announced it will be exhibiting at The Annapolis US Powerboat Show! Prior to joining Latitude, Mr. Hernandez was part owner and General Manager of Oceanika Yachts USA, a multimillion dollar dealership for Regal, Pursuit, Caravelle, and Nautic Star Boats. He is also the president of Navigator International Yacht Sales and has served in many managerial positions since 1990, when he started his career with Champion Marine, the world's largest Wellcraft and Cigarette dealer.

Mr. Hernandez will be responsible for managing the day to day operation and the company's investments in manufacturing and product development, as well as head advisor to the board of directors.

"Luring my husband in was not an easy task," expressed the family-oriented Carolina Hernandez, President and CEO of Latitude Powerboats. "Although Orlando has been involved in the development and structure of Latitude Powerboats from its inception, his many other business ventures and obligations did not allow him to come aboard full time. Now he's totally committed to the progress of our growing company."

Wall Street News Alert is placing Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of Latitude Industries Inc.! The company also announced this week that it will be exhibiting at The Annapolis US Powerboat Show in Annapolis, Maryland on October 11-14, 2007. In a statement, the organizers of this promotional event expressed that they are delighted to feature Latitude Powerboats, a Miami-based company who manufactures some of the finest center console and offshore fishing boats available in the industry.
