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

WESTON, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 12, 2005 -- Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: NetCert, Inc. (OTC: NTCI), eBay (NASDAQ: EBAY), Red Hat, Inc. (NASDAQ: RHAT) and Arena Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: ARNA).

Aggressive investors and traders may be watching NetCert, Inc. (OTC: NTCI) this morning! Yesterday after the markets closed, the company issued a press release announcing that it is unveiling a unique online platform for the emerging Chinese eCommerce market.

This could be great news for the company's investors! NetCert provides superior Internet based transaction services. Its primary business model is to provide buyers and sellers a friendly online shopping mall based on a proprietary transaction platform featuring a new "forced credit" process which can help to eliminate fraudulent practices in eCommerce. In only 9 months of operations in 2004, NetCert has achieved annualized revenue of $2.2 million with $893,900 or 40% in net profit and $1 million cash reserve.

Investors continue to watch this company's progress! Up until now the Chinese consumer has been hesitant to buy online due to the lax enforcement and the oversight of the payment process. Fraud was a huge problem during the payment process and is regularly cited as one of the top three reasons that people are reluctant to make Internet purchases. Netcert's technology has solved this problem and removed the roadblock to the wide range of eCommerce.

According the company's press release, NetCert has already reached a tentative agreement with the China International Economic and Trade Arbitration Commission to have CIETAC staff hosting the virtual arbitration desk. NetCert's "Forced Credit" has been designated by the Ministry of Science & Technology as a part of the National Key Technologies R&D Program, ensuring preferential treatment by government agencies and facilitated access to national and international financial institutions.

NetCert is one of only three eCommerce companies that have received approval from the Chinese government to accept international Master Card and Visa credit cards and has one of the largest portfolios of partnering banks in the industry.

Prior to the press release, the stock had closed at Nine cents a share.

In case you are not familiar with the company: NetCert was formed in April 2004 and offers a complete range of products and services in an online format. At their E-stores or online mall you can buy everything from traditional products like clothing, gifts, books and magazines, auto parts, and home furnishings, to more E-related ones like digital cards, software, online gaming accessories, and other virtual products. NetCert has already received commitments from over 3000 online stores. These established retailers bring existing customers and increased sight volume immediately. (Web site:
