Wall Street News Alert: PKGH Is on the Move! November 3, 2006

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

WESTON, FL--(Marketwire - November 3, 2006) - Wall Street News Alert's "stocks to watch" this morning are: Packaged Home Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PKGH), The Home Depot (NYSE: HD), Atmel® Corporation (NASDAQ: ATML) and Sun Microsystems Inc. (NASDAQ: SUNW).

As Packaged Home Solutions, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PKGH) continues to focus on achieving its goal of 30 operational offices by the end of 2007, the company may continue to be a target of aggressive investors and day traders! Recently, the company issued a press release announcing that it anticipates closing three additional strategic acquisitions, as well as opening regional offices in Tampa, Florida and Dallas, Texas prior to year end.

This news should get the attention of investors, as the company has accelerated its acquisition strategy and regional expansions since becoming a public company in October, 2006! CEO Dan Smith, in discussing the expansion of PHS, stated: "Since we have entered the public market, we now have the access to capital and stock currency to complete acquisitions that have been under consideration for the last several months. The expansion plans that we are announcing today should add a minimum of $7 million of historic gross income and net profits of $1 million. By taking the products manufactured by these acquisitions through our distribution system, we should be able to double gross income and net profits generated by these acquisitions in 2007. Each regional office we open should generate additional gross revenues of $5 million per year, with a net profit of $900,000 per office, with each satellite office generating $3 million of gross income and net income of $600,000. We are clearly now focused on making several strategic acquisitions in the near future and continuing our acquisition strategy in 2007. With the addition of PHS Southwest to our operating subsidiaries, we are well on our way to achieving our goal of having 30 operating offices in twelve states by the end of 2007."

The acquisitions offer new products and services such as hurricane windows to the Gulf and Atlantic states capable of withstanding Category Five storm winds, as well as more diversified exterior products. These additional product lines will be added to the PHS distribution system in four states, thereby enhancing the products and services offered to its homeowner customer base. Furthermore, the Company will be cross-marketing its kitchen and bathroom products and services to the existing customer base of each manufacturer it is acquiring.

Continue to watch this company! According to the press release, the Company will be opening an additional satellite office in Columbus, Ohio prior to the end of the year, which is the fifth office in its Midwest region. As part of this expansion, PHS is in the final stages of negotiating a joint marketing agreement in Columbus with a major restoration company that has agreed to refer all of its kitchen and bath improvement work to the Company. This will allow the Company to enter the Columbus market with a large number of referrals without substantial customer acquisition costs normally associated with starting a new satellite office. Finally, the management of PHS has selected Dallas, Texas as corporate office for its new subsidiary, PHS Southwest, Inc., which will cover the geographic region from Texas west to Arizona and north to Oklahoma. The Company has reached an agreement with a senior executive to lead this subsidiary, and anticipates opening a minimum of six satellite and regional offices in this territory in 2007.

Wall Street News Alert is placing Aggressive Investors on alert to monitor the progress of Packaged Home Solutions! The Company recently appointed Todd Medina as president of PHS Southeast, Inc., which covers the market from Florida north to Virginia and west to Louisiana. Mr. Medina anticipates opening a PHS regional office in Tampa in December 2006, and expanding the installation services of the PHS regional offices in Jacksonville and Miami, as well as Tampa, when opened, to include installation services for two national home improvement chains that sell only home improvement products, but do not provide installation services.

The stock closed yesterday at $2.60 a share.

Market Commentary:

"The Labor Department said that U.S. productivity growth fell to zero in the third quarter, but more worrisome was that unit labor costs increased to an annualized rate of 3.8%. Economists had forecast only 3.4%, and a 1.1% increase in productivity. This pushes the inflationary bubble," stated Sonja Rudd in Wall Street News Alert's daily commentary continued at: http://www.WallStreetNewsAlert.com.
