Oscar Picks

The Oscars are almost upon us. I'm not really as excited this year as I was last year. There's no movie that I'm really rooting for, like I was for last years The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King. After last years event, I decided that I would try to see all five of the Best Picture nominees before the awards, so I could make a well educated prediction. Unfortunately, I fell well short, only having seen two of the five. Ray unfortunately and Sideways which, while good, just didn't have that Best Picture feel. Since I can only judge by word of mouth and general buzz, my predictions go as follows. I feel that once the Best Director winner is announced, we will know who the Best Picture winner is. If the Academy gives it to Eastwood for Million Dollar Baby, then Scorsese's The Aviator will take home the night's big prize. If Scorsese wins for his direction, then Million Dollar Baby will win the highest honor.

These are my picks for most of the other major categories: (it's who I think will win, not that they necessarily should win)

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
