RedChip Research Moves Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA to Its Independent Index
ORLANDO, Fla., July 16, 2008 (PRIME NEWSWIRE) -- RedChip Companies, Inc. today announced that it has moved Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing USA, Inc. (OTCBB:WEMU) from its Small-Cap Visibility Index, which lists companies participating in RedChip's small-cap awareness program, to its Independent Index, a select index of small-capitalization companies selected for RedChip Independent Research coverage.
Matthew Kantrowitz, Director of Equity Research at RedChip Companies, commented on the move:
"We're pleased to have Worldwide Energy and Manufacturing as a new addition to our Independent Index. RedChip Visibility published the Initial Research Report* on WEMU in September 2007 when the Company's shares were trading around $5.00. Since then, Worldwide's first quarter revenue has increased 94% year-over-year and the Company has expanded its manufacturing business into solar module production through its new solar division, AmeriSolar. These successes coupled with AmeriSolar's recent contract wins valued at approximately $15 million have translated into WEMU shares appreciating over 40%. This impressive top-line growth for the first half of 2008, which has already surpassed the Company's total revenue in 2007, and our belief in the Company's ability to achieve its vision of becoming the preferred global manufacturer of solar products merit Worldwide's addition to the RedChip Independent Index."
Kantrowitz added: "One of our five fundamental criteria in qualifying securities for Independent Research coverage is effective management, and we believe that Worldwide's CEO Jimmy Wang has the vision and experience to maintain the company's momentum, as evidenced by their successful expansion into the emerging solar market. The numbers here speak for themselves: $15 million in signed solar module contracts and almost $5 million in funding. These recent successes are strong catalysts for future growth."
To qualify for Independent Research coverage and listing on the Independent Index, Companies undergo an incisive process of scrutinization by RedChip analysts and must achieve full approval on each of RedChip Research's five fundamental investment criteria: effective management, mass appeal, growing sales, improving margins, and profitability or near-term profitability. The RedChip Independent Index currently boasts an average return of 24.73%, well above average market returns, and a post-coverage high return of nearly 82%.
