xRM Global's Wealth Intelligence Portal is "Making Sense of the Markets"

For the first time, Brokers and Investors can get a clear sense of how media is affecting the stocks in your portfolio

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Dec. 29, 2009) - xRM Global Inc. ("xRM Global") (TSX VENTURE:XRM) has developed and operates the XRM Utility for some of the largest global enterprises. The XRM Utility is a High Touch - High Trust core infrastructure that manages the most valued relationships across the enterprise. xRM is pleased to announce that the recent acquisition of Ockham Research is gaining significant growth among USA investors and brokers through real time assessment of over 5,000 publicly traded stocks. Ockham's unique valuation model determines whether the stock is fairly valued and whether the sentiment around a stock is positive or has fallen out of favor. Furthermore, staying informed on the media's impact on a stock is becoming an absolutely critical component of any portfolio risk strategy, which is why Ockham monitors any time stocks are discussed on business television and influential blogs.

"The press and the internet have significant impact on stock performance in spite of the analyst's recommendations," stated Gary Bartholomew, CEO of xRM Global. "We have seen many cases where the analyst upgrades the stock, yet media and crowd sentiment is negative and as a result, significant devaluation occurs putting your stock portfolio at risk. The investor and broker physically cannot monitor all these media sources across their portfolios."

One clear demonstration of the media's affect on stocks occurred last spring when CNBC's most famous stock pundit, Jim Cramer, gave a glowing recommendation of Freeport-McMoRan. He focused on the stock for an entire segment of his show, and told viewers the reasons he believed the stock would climb in the weeks ahead. There was no other relevant or breaking news on the stock other than Mr. Cramer's endorsement. As it happened, Ockham's valuation methodology also rated the stock as fundamentally undervalued. Furthermore, the crowd sentiment from the Motley Fool was at its most bullish, 5 out of 5 stars possible. This confluence of events spurred an explosive opportunity the very next day. This large cap stock had its largest percentage gain in its history up to that date, more than 11% in a single day.

Building upon situations like this, xRM Global's Ockham platform makes sense of the market by bringing together proven valuation models, crowd sentiment, and media impact sources all into one concise platform. With Ockham, the investor or broker can quickly determine many of the risks associated with the investment, long before traditional analyst opinions are known. Unlimited access to the Ockham Wealth Intelligence Portal is available to investors and brokers for just $1.00 per month and can be subscribed to directly online at www.ockhamresearch.com.

Ockham's models and analysis have also gained broad interest through its daily blog and investment analysis reports. Online publishers and television reports from Barron's, Forbes, The Wall Street Journal, Fox Business, CNBC and many more have all referenced or interviewed the Ockham solution and staff regarding its unique perspective on informing investors and professionals. Additionally, the Ockham daily commentary that tracks media impact and valuations has grown tremendously through broad syndication on the most widely read investment and news sites including Forbes.com, Real Clear Markets, Seeking Alpha, Wall Street Pit, and dozens more.

The Ockham platform covers over 5,000 U.S. stocks and ADR's, but will expand to cover thousands of Canadian stocks and other global markets beginning in the first quarter of 2010.
