NOTE TO EDITORS: The Following Is an Investment Opinion Being Issued by Stock Market Alerts.

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - May 2, 2007) - Stock Market Alerts' performance stock list includes: ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUC), UnitedHealth Group (NYSE: UNH), Bristol-Myers Squibb Company (NYSE: BMY), Tenet Healthcare Corp. (NYSE: THC).

ER Urgent Care Centers (PINKSHEETS: ERUC) has just released some good news for investors. This morning, the company, owner and operator of full service urgent care and primary care centers through out the U.S., has issued a press release announcing that it has been rated "Speculative Buy" with a target price of $0.90 by Beacon Equity Research Analyst, Lisa Springer, CFA.

Great news for ERUC investors! In the report it states urgent care centers are a rapidly growing business with significant growth potential. The market for healthcare services provided outside regular physician office hours is largely underserved. These centers are becoming increasing popular options for patients with non-life threatening conditions who wish to avoid the high costs and long waits associated with emergency room visits.

Keep watching ERUC as the company continues to move forward! On Monday, April 30th, the company also announced that it has come to an agreement with the City of Hallandale Beach, Florida to see its employee workman comp. patients. This agreement encompasses police, fire and municipal employees. The City of Hallandale Beach has over 475 employees.

ERUC Management Company Inc. operates ER Urgent Care Centers in the South Florida area. The "true, bona-fide," "Urgent Care Center" is a one-stop-shop where patients can receive premier health care, after-hours, at a fraction of the cost of emergency room visits. With the "Urgent Care Center" model emergency rooms will no longer lose money on ER patients with minor injuries and illnesses and the HMOs will no longer have to pay exorbitant claims for non-admitted patients. ER Urgent Care Centers create a win-win situation for everyone, filling the financial and service gap between primary care physicians (PCPs) and hospital emergency rooms.

ERUC closed Tuesday at Sixty cents a share.
