    Mit diesen Problemen kämpfen aber alle Werte.
    Denke aber das bei schlechten Umfeld der Bedarf an Kapital und auch gleichzeitig auch die Nachfrage nach Vermittlungs und Beratungsdiensten in China steigen wird.
    Davon wird China Direct profitieren. Auch die geplante Umsatzsteigerung auf um ca. 100 Mio. auf 270 Mio. und der Verdoppelung des Gewinns auf 20 Mio. sind gute Vorzeichen. Das die Firma sich rasant entwickelt ist nicht von der Hand zu weisen.

    Möchte mich nicht als Hellseher aufspielen, glaube aber an eine Verdopplung.

    China Direct upgraded to "strong buy"

    Wednesday, November 21, 2007 11:34:35 AM ET
    JM Dutton & Associates

    NEW YORK, November 21 (newratings.com) - Analyst Stanley Ng of JM Dutton upgrades China Direct Inc (ticker: CDS) from "strong speculative buy" to "strong buy," while raising his estimates for the company. The 12-month target price has been raised from $12 to $15.52.

    In a research note published this morning, the analyst mentions that the company has posted robust results for the nine months ended September 30, 2007. China Direct's consulting and magnesium divisions are expected to achieve sustained growth going ahead, the analyst says. The addition of new manufacturing operations is likely to enable China Direct to generate healthy revenue and net income growth in the forthcoming few years, JM Dutton adds. The diluted EPS estimates for 2007 and 2008 have been raised from $0.47 to $0.60 and from $0.67 to $0.97, respectively.

    China Direct, Inc. Expands Metals Operations Through Definitive Agreement to Acquire Zinc and Lead Company in ChinaLast
    update: 11/29/2007 10:00:00 AM

    The Acquired Company to Become Wholly Owned Subsidiary BOCA RATON, Fla., Nov 29, 2007 /PRNewswire-FirstCall via COMTEX/ -- China Direct, Inc. (CDS), a U.S. company that owns controlling stakes in a diversified portfolio of Chinese entities and assists Chinese businesses in accessing the U.S. capital markets, announced today that it has entered into a definitive agreement to acquire 100% of Xiangxi Autonomous Prefecture Jixiang Mining Industry Co., Ltd. ("Jixiang Mining"), a business operation which mines, processes and distributes concentrated zinc and lead. The acquired company will be renamed CDI Jixiang Metal Industry Co., Ltd. ("CDI Metal") as a wholly foreign owned entity. The definitive agreement was reached concurrently with the Chinese local government approval for China Direct's sole ownership of CDI Metal. China Direct will acquire CDI Metal in exchange for cash consideration of approximately $675,675 (RMB 5 million). In addition, China Direct plans to invest up to $1.325 million in expansion capital after the acquisition. CDI Metal owns the sole mining rights to a parcel of land located in the Yongshun Kaxi Lake Mining area. The mining rights were obtained from the Ministry of Land and Resources. The land holds both zinc and lead ore, and the government has approved for the mining of an aggregate of 10,000 metric tons of zinc and lead on an annual basis. CDI Metal has also received a safety and production permit issued by the Safety in Production Supervision Bureau which is valid through January 2009. The preliminary reporting from China Direct's engineers estimates that the zinc and lead reserves contained in the land covered by the mining rights are worth up to $54 million at current prices. China Direct plans to conduct a more detailed survey in the near future and intends to explore acquiring additional rights pending the results of that survey. Zinc is primarily used for galvanizing steel against corrosion, die casting of intricate machine parts, and in batteries and other electrical applications. Zinc is also alloyed with copper to form brass. Lead is used in building construction, lead-acid batteries, bullets, solder, pewter, and fusible alloys. Commenting on the agreement, Dr. James Wang, Chairman and CEO of China Direct, stated, "We are very excited with this new acquisition, as the areas in Yongshun County, Hunan Province have significant zinc, lead and other metal reserves. The acquisition of CDI Metal as a wholly owned subsidiary represents a significant milestone for the growth of our Zinc division in China. China is the largest producer and consumer of Zinc and Lead in the world and we are committed to realize the full potential of CDI Metal's mining rights and are confident that this subsidiary will make a substantial contribution to our financial performance in 2008 and beyond."

    China Direct, Inc. Completes Audit of CDI Pan Magnesium Subsidiary





    BOCA RATON, Fla., Dec. 13 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Direct, Inc. (AMEX:CDS), a U.S. company that owns controlling stakes in a diversified portfolio of Chinese entities and assists Chinese businesses in accessing the U.S. capital markets, announced today that it has completed a full audit of its CDI Pan Magnesium Co., Ltd., a joint venture subsidiary 51% owned by China Direct. The subsidiary has been renamed Pan Asia Magnesium Co., Ltd. ("Pan Asia Magnesium").

    The foreign invested entity and name change was approved by the Department of Commerce of the Shanxi Province in November of 2007. China Direct has contributed $2.1 million of its total registered capital commitment of $6.75 million.

    Pan Asia Magnesium currently has an annual production capacity of approximately 6,000 metric tons of pure magnesium and is constructing 2 additional facilities which will increase annual capacity by 12,000 metric tons. Management sees the operations contributing approximately $4 million in revenue to China Direct in the fourth quarter of 2007 and anticipates that both new facilities will be operational in the first quarter of 2008.

    Pan Asia Magnesium reported assets of approximately $7.7 million and shareholder equity of approximately $2.6 million for the first nine months of 2007 on a pro forma basis. Revenue for the same period was approximately $6.79 million.

    Magnesium prices have continued to climb in the quarter reaching highs of well over $3,600 per metric ton. Pan Asia Magnesium, when fully operational, will have an annual production capacity of 18,000 metric tons or approximately $65 million at current price levels. Management anticipates a full sell through of that capacity as it comes on line.

    Dr. James Wang, CEO of China Direct, commented, "We are pleased with the progress of construction at our new joint venture and are excited to add this additional capacity to our rapidly growing magnesium operations. Our team is making every effort to reach our targeted capacity and distribution run rates for 2008 and we remain committed to reaching an overall manufacturing capacity of 40,000 to 50,000 metric tons of pure magnesium while distributing an additional 40,000 to 50,000 metric tons of magnesium. Market forces continue to elevate the price of magnesium and we continue to see robust worldwide demand and management will continue to look to opportunistically increase overall capacity."

    Best Stocks for 2008: China stock guru speculates on China Direct (CDS)

    Posted Dec 29th 2007 3:40PM by Steven Halpern
    Filed under: International markets, China, Newsletters, Stocks to Buy, Best Stocks for 2008

    For 25 years, Steven Halpern, editor of TheStockAdvisors.com, has surveyed the leading financial newsletter advisors asking for their favorite stocks for the coming year. This article is one of 100+ ideas in the Best Stocks for 2008 report.

    "Our top speculative idea for 2008 is China Direct (ASE: CDS)," says Jim Trippon, editor of The China Stock Digest. "China Direct is an aggressively expanding US-based firm that has grown exponentially over the course of the past year -- from a start-up with meager profits to a thriving concern with a sharp revenue growth curve. Share prices are following suit.

    "China Direct's management division acquires controlling stakes in Chinese companies and then provides investment capital and active management. Its consulting division assists other companies in China and the US in establishing and maintaining a presence in the US capital markets.

    "The company says that, as a direct link to China, it serves as a vehicle allowing investors to directly participate in the rapid growth of the Chinese economy in a diversified and balanced manner.

    "It credits its sharp rise in revenues to three recently acquired Chinese companies, Chang Magnesium, Lang Chemical and CDI Wanda, as well as a strong performance from China Direct's consulting division.

    "The firm has established an admirable track record for bringing small and mid-sized Chinese firms to American markets. And the addition of new manufacturing operations is likely to enable China Direct to generate healthy revenue and net income growth in the forthcoming few years.

    "Most recently the company acquired 100% of Xiangxi Autonomous Prefecture Jixiang Mining Industry Co., Ltd, a business that mines, processes and distributes concentrated zinc and lead. The preliminary reporting from China Direct's engineers estimates that the zinc and lead reserves contained in the land covered by the mining rights are worth up to $54 million at current prices."

    China Direct Commences Magnesium Production at Two New Facilities Adding 12,000 Metric Tons of Annual Capacity
    PR Newswire
    January 23, 2008: 12:30 PM EST

    BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 23 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Direct, Inc. , a U.S. company that owns controlling stakes in a diversified portfolio of Chinese entities and assists Chinese businesses in accessing the U.S. capital markets, today announced that its subsidiaries, Jinwei Magnesium Co., Ltd ("Jinwei") and Pan Asia Magnesium Co., Ltd ("Pan Asia"), have commenced production at two newly constructed 6,000 metric ton magnesium manufacturing facilities.

    This marks the completion of the second stage of construction at both Jinwei and Pan Asia which can now each produce 12,000 metric tons of magnesium on an annual basis. Management expects to complete the third stage of construction at Pan Asia in March of 2008, which will add an additional capacity of 6,000 metric tons, bringing the total annual production capacity at Pan Asia to 18,000 metric tons. The two subsidiaries will have a combined annual capacity of 30,000 metric tons in the first quarter of 2008.

    As previously announced, management intends to complete the third stage of construction at Jinwei which will add an additional 8,000 metric tons of production capacity by the end of 2008, bringing the total capacity at Jinwei to 20,000 metric tons annually. Upon completion of the third stage at Jinwei in 2008, the combined production capacity at the two subsidiaries will be 38,000 metric tons, bringing the total magnesium manufacturing capacity of China Direct to 46,000 metric tons by the end of 2008.

    Commenting on the completion of the two facilities, Dr. James Wang, Chairman and CEO of China Direct, stated, "We are pleased with the rapid progression of our magnesium division in the past 12 months. We will have increased our overall manufacturing capacity from less than 8,000 metric tons in the third quarter of 2007 to 38,000 metric tons in the first quarter of 2008 and 46,000 metric tons by the end this year. In addition, we expect to continue to grow our wholesale distribution of magnesium throughout 2008. While we have significantly expanded our operations, the company continues to benefit from the fact that our average contracted sales price for 2008 delivery of our pure magnesium has increased substantially from the average sales price in 2007. We expect our expanded capacity coupled with the favorable pricing environment as compared to 2007 will result in material profit margin expansion as we continue to position our company to be a leading force in the magnesium production industry."

    China Direct's Subsidiary Reports Results of Comprehensive Independent Testing
    of New Tire Recycling Machinery Line
    Testing and Results Monitored by Shandong Province Government Agencies

    BOCA RATON, Fla., Jan. 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Direct, Inc.
    (AMEX: CDS), a U.S. company that owns controlling stakes in a diversified
    portfolio of Chinese entities and assists Chinese businesses in accessing the
    U.S. capital markets, today announced that its majority owned subsidiary, CDI
    Wanda New Energy Company, Limited ("CDI Wanda") reported the results from a
    comprehensive testing monitored by the Science-Tech Bureau of Shandong
    Province of the main equipment used in its proprietary automatic tire cracking
    machinery line. This proprietary cracking line processes used tires to
    produce fuel oil, steel scrap and carbon soot for industry use through CDI
    Wanda's proprietary production system.
    According to the report, the machinery performed successfully throughout
    four major test intervals and met all established benchmarks for performance
    in the study design. The tests focused on the two main categories of
    processing capacity and production yield. The testing runs were done in four
    separate time intervals of 8, 12, 24 and 48 hours. The output was monitored
    for pollution standards as well as to the quality of end products produced.
    The performance results for processing capacity indicated that in its
    present configuration the equipment is capable of processing 626 kilograms of
    tires per hour or 15.02 metric tons per day as measured in the 48 hour
    continuous tests. At that processing rate, the production yield of fuel oil
    by weight was approximately 44.9% or 6.75 metric tons per day. Steel wire and
    carbon soot represented 6.65 metric tons as a byproduct of the process on a
    daily basis of which steel would represent up to 15% of the processing yield
    dependent upon the configuration of the processed materials. The carbon soot
    was of the quality necessary to be processed into active carbon to be reused
    in rubber manufacturing and water treatment. The fuel oil was inspected and
    analyzed by Shandong Institute of Product Quality Supervision and Inspection
    and each index of the distillated fuel oil was found to be in line with the
    industry standard (SH/0356-1966 fuel oil 4# light).
    Another component of the testing was emissions, which was monitored by the
    Shandong Environment Monitoring Centre Station. The emission concentration of
    the major pollutants released during the testing was found to be within the
    national secondary standard for air pollutants.
    Commenting on the event, Dr. James Wang, Chairman and CEO of China Direct
    stated, "As a result of these positive test results, management of China
    Direct believes that this technology has vast environmental and economic
    possibilities and we fully intend to expand the use of this machinery. The
    environmental problem of waste tires throughout the world has been well
    documented and this technology not only provides a potential solution, it
    provides a viable recycling application that produces three re-marketable end
    products. We are more confident than ever that this technology will provide
    our company with a significant source of revenue and income in the coming
    years, as we prepare to enter the tire recycling industry in addition to
    manufacturing and distribution of tire recycling equipment."

    This alert was distributed to Stocks Under $10 subscribers Tuesday, Feb. 12. It is being presented here on TheStreet.com to provide analysis on Imax and China Direct. To take a free trial to Stocks Under $10, click here.

    We have some important news for two of our model portfolio holdings this morning, and we want to update readers. Imax(IMAX - Cramer's Take - Stockpickr) announced a positive arbitration ruling that will result in a $9.4 million award to the company.

    Also, China Direct(CDS - Cramer's Take - Stockpickr) announced a $12.95 million private placement with a group of institutional investors. Shares of Imax closed Tuesday at $7.05, up 2 cents, while China Direct finished at $6.60, down 46 cents. We are not taking any action in this Alert.

    Looking at Imax, a panel of the International Court of Arbitration of the International Chamber of Commerce unanimously found in favor of the company in its dispute with E-City, an affiliate of Indian entertainment conglomerate Essel Group.

    The arbitration, which took place in London, centered on an agreement between Imax and E-City to develop six Imax theaters in India. E-City had claimed that its agreement with Imax was nonbinding and that Imax was seeking excessive damages. The $9.4 million awarded to Imax does not include interest and costs, and could bring the total to around $11 million.

    Obviously this news is a positive for Imax, as $11 million is equivalent to about a month's worth of revenue. However, we are somewhat skeptical regarding how quickly the matter will be resolved, as the tone of Imax's press release suggests that the company may need to continue putting pressure on E-City in order to enforce the ruling.

    Regardless, any payment would serve as a potential catalyst for the stock in the near term. However, we would wait for a pullback before considering adding to this name, as the stock is up more than 40% in the few months since we initiated our model portfolio position.

    In other news, China Direct announced a $12.95 million private placement this morning. While we are certainly not fans of the shareholder dilution that occurs when these placements occur, there are some positives in this instance.

    For one, the company is already in a strong financial position, with more than $17 million in cash on hand vs. $3 million in total debt as of last quarter. Securing additional capital is a sign that the company will likely continue to snatch up majority equity stakes in attractive Chinese businesses.

    In addition, a look at the 8-K filing for the deal shows that China Direct used Roth Capital Partners as its placement agent. China Direct has presented at Roth Capital's conferences before, but this latest deal could lead to Roth's research division initiating coverage of China Direct sometime in the near future. Gaining a sizable research following is important for China Direct in the long term, as one of the difficulties for investors (both small investors and large institutions) is the limited coverage of the company.

    We believe shares of China Direct will remain volatile over the short term as the company continues to announce deals and solidify its position in the Chinese market. We like the company's business model and believe there is above-average long-term potential for investors.

    However, China Direct is still a small-cap play in the volatile China sector that undergoes considerable swings without major news. We believe the stock remains very attractive for aggressive investors, especially considering shares were trading near $8 early last week.

    China Direct initiated with "buy"
    11:24a.m. - Global Hunter Securities

    NEW YORK, February 19 (newratings.com) - Analysts at Global Hunter Securities initiate coverage of China Direct Inc (CDS) with a "buy" rating. The 12-month target price is set to $13.

    In a research note published this morning, the analysts mention that the company’s near-term growth is likely to be primarily driven by its magnesium and clean technology divisions. China Direct is likely to continue to post substantial revenue growth via capacity expansion and acquisitions, the analysts say. The valuation multiple for China Direct’s stock is likely to expand going forward due to the company’s revenue and EPS CAGR of 54% and 40%, respectively, for the next couple of years, Global Hunter Securities adds.

("CDI Wanda") has created a new joint venture as it moves into the next phase of development for its tire recycling operations. Under the terms of the agreement, CDI Wanda and China Direct will invest a total of $750,000 over the course of the next six months to create facilities initially capable of processing 6,000 metric tons of waste tires annually. Upon successful operation of the initial processing line, management at CDI Wanda will look to add additional plants in locations throughout China and steadily increase capacity.

This new venture and processing production line will help us validate the commercial viability of this technology on an enterprise scale and if successful, provide a profitable solution to a global environmental problem. Our excitement continues to build with the progress at CDI Wanda and we will continue to support its development efforts in this important industry as needed."

    Check on China: China Direct, Inc.

    Shannon Roxborough | Mar 20, 2008 6:20am EDT | User Rating N/A

    China has been good to investors. Thanks to a wave of hot Chinese companies that have become phenomenally successful in U.S. and global markets, investors have been rewarded with exceptionally high returns.

    Even as the U.S. economy fights to stay out of a recession, consumer spending slows, the credit crunch worsens, bleak financial market news becomes the norm, and a wave of American businesses struggle to stay afloat, many companies tied into China's booming economy continue to prosper.

    China Direct, Inc. (AMEX:CDS), an American firm that assists Chinese companies with accessing the U.S. capital markets and owns controlling stakes in a diversified portfolio of China-based businesses, has been no exception. China Direct invests in profitable, well-managed Chinese small to medium enterprises (SMEs) that account for 75% of the growth in the Chinese economy and have difficulties obtaining capital through traditional channels. After incorporating as Evolve One, Inc. in 1999, China Direct quietly meandered along until it grabbed the Street's attention in November 2007, when it posted unexpectedly high third-quarter revenue gains, swung into the black and upped its earnings outlook for 2007 and 2008.

    China Direct's recent success can be attributed to savvy acquisitions made by its smart management team, which has significant experience in top public and private enterprises in the United States and China.

    In October 2006, it snapped up a 51% interest in Shanghai Lang Chemical Co., Ltd., a company that sells and distributes industrial grade synthetic chemicals. In February 2007 it bought a 60% majority stake in Chang Magnesium Co. Ltd., operator of a magnesium refinery in Taiyuan, China, and it secured 51% ownership of CDI Wanda Alternative Energy Co., Ltd., a recycling company that converts waste rubber tires into gasoline, diesel and fuel oil. In November of 2007, it acquired CDI Jixiang Metal Industry Co., Ltd., a company with sole mining rights to a parcel of land in the zinc- and lead-rich Yongshun Kaxi Lake Mining area. In December 2007, it bought a 51% stake in Baotou Xinjin Magnesium Co. and Baotou Sanhe Magnesium Co., Ltd., two magnesium companies.

    China Direct launches aluminum recycling project in China

    Interfax China reported that China Direct Inc, a US company with controlling stakes in a diverse portfolio of Chinese companies, will construct an aluminum recycling facility in China.

    CDI will inject USD 352,000 into the facility, which will be run by a newly established venture, CDI Metal Recycling Co Ltd CDI Shanghai Management Co. Ltd, another wholly owned CDI subsidiary, will control an 83.3% interest in the new venture. The 1,000 tonnes per annum recycling capacity facility, which will use a mechanical crushing method that reduces losses associated with traditional heating methods, will primarily recycle aluminum wire to create aluminum powder.

    Production at the facility is scheduled to begin in the second quarter this year, and the company intends to expand its capacity to 5,000 tonnes per annum by June 2009. The company did not reveal where the plant would be located in its statement, and officials were not available for comment when contacted by Interfax.

    The company said that it believes recycling will become a strong growth driver worldwide as natural resources continue to deplete.

    China Direct Q4 Profit Increases [CDS]

    3/31/2008 11:09:37 AM Management and consulting company China Direct, Inc. (CDS) on Monday announced fourth quarter results, reporting a jump in profit primarily on increased sales from Magnesium and Clean Technology segments. The company also provided earnings guidance for fully year 2008.

    The Deerfield Beach, Florida-based China Direct's fourth quarter net income surged to $4.71 million, or $0.20 per share from $0.557 million or $0.04 per share in the comparable quarter a year ago. The net profit margin was 8.1%, compared to 4.1% in prior-year quarter.

    Quarterly revenues were $58.27 million, up from $13.50 million in the prior-year quarter. Revenue increased mainly due to higher sales from Magnesium and Clean Technology segments acquired during 2007. Strong performance from both Lang Chemical and Consulting segment also backed the revenues.

    Operating income was $5.14 million, compared to $0.51 million in the fourth quarter of 2006. Operating margins improved to 8.8% from 3.7% in the same quarter of the prior year.

    Total operating expenses increased to $1.68 million from $0.82 million in the year-ago quarter. Expenses reflected the continued increases in operations in China associated with new subsidiaries and staff additions both in the U.S. and China. This was associated with the financial management and integration of expanding operations.

    For the full year 2007, net income jumped to $11.83 million or $0.67 per share from $0.17 million or $0.01 per share in 2006. On average, three analysts polled by First Call/Thomson Financial expected the company to earn $0.58 per share for the year.

    Year-over-year revenues were $174.24 million, up from $13.98 million in the prior year. Three Wall Street analyst expected revenues of $171.77 million for the year.

    Operating income was $14.31 million, compared to a loss of $0.46 million a year ago. The net profit margin was 6.8%, compared to 1.2% in 2006.

    Looking ahead to full year 2008, China Direct sees continued robust growth in both revenue and earnings. The company expects generating internal growth of at least 30% and continued improvement in average contract price for magnesium in 2008.

    CDS is currently trading at $7.50, up $0.32 or 4.46%, on a volume of 0.30 million shares.

    China Direct president: Market overlooks robust growth

    Jennifer Schonberger | Apr 04, 2008 2:30pm EDT | User Rating N/A

    Management and consulting company China Direct (AMEX:CDS) has had a full week of news, including the report of strong fourth-quarter and fiscal 2007 results on Monday, raising 2008 guidance on Tuesday and news on Wednesday that the company will now trade on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange. However, the stock is only up 2% this week. To gain some insight into the latest events and their implications for the Deerfield Beach, Fla.-based company, SmallCapInvestor.com spoke with China Direct’s president Marc Siegel.

    I spoke with China Direct’s executive vice president, Rich Galterio, at the Roth Capital Conference in February and he told me that the market would get a clearer picture of what the company has accomplished once fourth-quarter results were disclosed. Do you think the market is beginning to see the real picture now?

    “I still don’t think that the value that’s being attributed to China Direct is still a fair value. Here’s the reality of the situation: we did $14 million in revenue in 2006 and we did $174 million in 2007. We did $169,000 in net income in 2006 and we did $11.8 million in earnings in 2007. We earned a penny in 2006 and we earned $0.67 in 2007 per share. Our assets went from $20.8 million to $88.3 million. As the president of this company and as the guy who’s given his blood and guts to doing this, I have a hard time believing the growth rate that we’ve achieved. I can’t even imagine because of what people have seen with the CXTIs [China Expert Technology, Inc.] of the world and other Chinese companies who maybe didn’t do their accounting properly, didn’t report properly, or who didn’t record contracts properly, that people believe that growth is what it really is.”

    Why do you think the market is missing this?

    “It’s a hard story to understand. We’re still new to the market. The reason Rich told you that the Street would get a better picture at the end of 2007 is that this is the first full year that we’ve owned Lang Chemical, Chang Magnesium and the other Chinese companies. We only raised our money in October and November of 2006 and recently raised $13 million in February of 2007. We really haven’t . . .

    Dutton Associates Announces Investment Opinion: China Direct Strong Buy Rating in Update Coverage by Dutton Associates

    ROSEVILLE, Calif. — Dutton Associates updates its coverage of China Direct (Nasdaq: CDS) maintaining its rating at Strong Buy with a lower $12.35 price target. The 14-page report by Dutton senior analyst Stanley Ng is available at www.jmdutton.com as well as from First Call, Bloomberg, Zacks, Reuters, Knobias, and other leading financial portals.

    China Direct recently announced a set of very solid financial results for the FY 2007, with total revenue of $174.2 million and net income of $11.8 million, which exceeded our forecasts. The higher-than-expected net income for 2007 was mainly due to a strong 4Q07, with revenue increased 31% to $58.3 million from $44.6 million in 3Q07, while gross profit showed an even stronger increase of 41.7% to $6.8 million in 4Q07 from $4.8 million in 3Q07. NI for 4Q07 jumped a more impressive 58.1% to $4.7 million from $3.0 million in 3Q07. The sharp improvement in NI for 4Q07 was mainly due to the improvement in margins for its magnesium segment, a major revenue and contributor in 2007. In specific, the average selling price of its magnesium rose 20% to approximately $3,000 per ton in 4Q07, compared to approximately $2,500 per ton in 3Q07. Elsewhere, performances at the basic materials, consulting, and clean technology segments in 2007 were solid and came in line with our expectations. Looking ahead into 2008 and 2009, we see rapid and sustaining growth for China Direct -- primarily due to the solid growth for magnesium segment which is driven by the prevailing high level of magnesium prices at over $4,000 per ton supported by strong demand from various industrial applications and sharply higher magnesium manufacturing facilities. Our revenue forecast for 2008 is $312 million with net income forecast at $23.0 million (FDEPS $.95).

    http://www.forbes.com/reuters/feeds/reuters/2008/04/28/2008-…

    NEW YORK (Reuters) - China Direct, which invests in Chinese resources companies, expects first-quarter profit to be much higher as a result of sky-rocketing magnesium prices, President Marc Siegel said Monday.

    "We knew demand was picking up, but we did not know it would double," he said of the price for the metal, which has gone from $1,850 per tonne in 2006 to more than $4,200 now.

    "We got lucky, but sometimes you have to be lucky ... and smart," Siegel told Reuters in a phone interview from company headquarters in Deerfield Beach, Florida.

    China Direct, which is listed on the Nasdaq after trading previously on the American Stock Exchange, owns controlling stakes in several Chinese metals, energy and chemical companies and helps Chinese businesses get access to U.S. capital.

    Earlier this month, China Direct raised its full-year 2008 revenue estimate to $320 million from $270 million, and its earnings forecast to $24 million from $20 million.

    It gave no quarterly outlook, but Siegel said: "The first quarter will be substantially better than the first quarter of 2007. We are comfortable with our guidance."

    He said about $100 million of the company's $174 million revenue last year came from its magnesium businesses, which together are expected to produce about 10 percent of the world's supply this year.

    When China Direct acquired 51 percent of Chang Magnesium in 2006, the company was producing just 5,000 tonnes of the metal. This year Chang expects to manufacture and distribute about 40,000 tonnes, he said.

    China Direct's average magnesium selling price in the fourth quarter was $3,000 and Siegel said it rose slightly in the first quarter and was expected to increase in the second.

    "Our earnings have doubled because margins on manufacturing magnesium are higher," Siegel said.

    "The biggest driver is the auto industry," he said, noting the metal is lighter and stronger than aluminum. As oil prices soar, "car manufacturers are trying to make different parts from magnesium alloys, as the lighter they are they become more fuel-efficient."

    He said the metal was also used for laptop computer cases and the back of Apple (nasdaq: AAPL - news - people ) Inc's iPhone.

    Siegel said the company was a low-cost producer because it had recently acquired a manufacturer in Inner Mongolia, near one of the world's largest mines for dolomite, from which magnesium is extracted.

    He said China Direct could benefit from the Olympic Games being held in China this year, because the Beijing government was clamping down on industries causing air pollution.

    He said the company uses exhaust gases from a facility that produces coking coal for steel. "We pipe the excess gas into our furnaces and because 80 percent of the cost of magnesium manufacture is energy, we are not creating new pollution.

    "We don't believe any of our facilities will be stopped (by a clampdown on pollution). But some of our competitors who use coal directly could get shut down."

    Siegel said world magnesium production was expected to be 800,000 to 810,000 tonnes this year, up from 755,000 tonnes in 2007. Of that, China Direct's companies will manufacture and distribute about 80,000 tonnes.

    China Direct, which also has stakes in zinc, chemical distribution and alternative energy companies, benefits from the weakness of the dollar against the Chinese currency.

    "It works in our favor. Even though the World Bank recently lowered China's growth rate from 11.2 percent, we would rather have money in China at 9.8 percent growth than in the U.S.," Siegel said.

    He noted China was the fastest-growing economy still and that 70 percent of its GDP came from small and mid-cap-sized companies -- the kind China Direct is involved with. (Editing by Braden Reddall)

    From Vectorvest Saturday May 3 -

    Value: Value is a measure of a stock's current worth. CDS has a current Value of $15.60 per share. Therefore, it is undervalued compared to its Price of $9.60 per share. Value is computed from forecasted earnings per share, forecasted earnings growth, profitability, interest, and inflation rates. Value increases when earnings, earnings growth rate and profitability increase, and when interest and inflation rates decrease. VectorVest advocates the purchase of undervalued stocks. At some point in time, a stock's Price and Value always will converge.

    RV (Relative Value): RV is an indicator of long-term price appreciation potential. CDS has an RV of 1.56, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. This indicator is far superior to a simple comparison of Price and Value because it is computed from an analysis of projected price appreciation three years out, AAA Corporate Bond Rates, and risk. RV solves the riddle of whether it is preferable to buy High growth, High P/E stocks, or Low growth, Low P/E stocks. VectorVest favors the purchase of stocks with RV ratings above 1.00.

    RT (Relative Timing): RT is a fast, smart, accurate indicator of a stock's price trend. CDS has a Relative Timing rating of 1.82, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00.


    VST (VST-Vector): VST is the master indicator for ranking every stock in the VectorVest database. CDS has a VST rating of 1.50, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. VST is computed from the square root of a weighted sum of the squares of RV, RS, and RT. Stocks with the highest VST ratings have the best combinations of Value, Safety and Timing. These are the stocks to own for above average, long-term capital appreciation. VectorVest advocates the purchase of safe, undervalued stocks rising in price.

    Recommendation (REC): VectorVest gives a Buy, Sell, Hold recommendation on every stock, every day. CDS has a Buy recommendation.

    GRT (Earnings Growth Rate): GRT reflects a company's one to three year forecasted earnings growth rate in percent per year. CDS has a forecasted Earnings Growth Rate of 35.00%, which VectorVest considers to be excellent. GRT is computed from historical, current and forecasted earnings data. It is updated each week for every stock in the VectorVest database.


    EPS (Earnings per Share): EPS stands for leading 12 months Earnings Per Share. CDS has a forecasted EPS of $1.05 per share.


    CI (Comfort Index): CI is an indicator which reflects a stock's ability to resist severe and/or lengthy price declines. CDS has a CI rating of 1.60, which is excellent on a scale of 0.00 to 2.00. CI is quite different from RS in that it is based solely upon a stock's long-term price history. VectorVest advocates the purchase of high CI stocks.

    Sales Growth: Sales Growth is the Sales Growth Rate in percent over the last 12 months. CDS has a Sales Growth of 999.00% per year. This is excellent. Sales Growth is updated each week for every stock.

    -- 1st Quarter revenue reaches a record $59.97 million increasing 91% year over year


    DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., May 8 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Direct, Inc. , a U.S. company that owns controlling stakes in a diversified portfolio of Chinese entities and assists Chinese businesses in accessing the U.S. capital markets, announced today the Company's financial results for the first quarter of 2008.

    Financial Highlights

    Revenues for the first quarter ended March 31, 2008 was $59.97 million, a 91% increase as compared to revenues of $30.94 million in the first quarter ended March 31, 2007. The rise in revenues was mainly attributable to increased sales from our magnesium segment that is consisted of four operating subsidiaries during the quarter as compared to only one subsidiary in the first quarter of 2007.

    Gross profit for the first quarter of 2008 was $10.49 million a 202% increase as compared to $3.47 million in the first quarter ended March 31, 2007. Gross profit in the fourth quarter of 2007 was $6.82 million. Total operating expenses for the first quarter of 2008 increased to $1.70 million as compared to $837,509 in the first quarter of 2007. Operating expenses were up slightly, approximately $20,000 from $1.68 million in the fourth quarter of 2007. The increase in operating expenses in the first quarter of 2008 as compared to the first quarter of 2007 reflects our investment in business development and financial staff in both the U.S. and China which we believe is sufficient to handle our current operations and our near term growth plans. The Company also experienced increases in travel expenses, professional consulting fees, insurance premiums, as well as non-cash stock compensation charges for employees, management, and professional advisors associated with its recent expansion and SEC compliance initiatives.

    Operating income was $8.79 million during the first quarter of 2008 as compared to $2.63 million for the first quarter of 2007, yielding operating margins of 14.6% and 8.5%, respectively. The increase in operating margins was benefited by sales of magnesium manufactured by our subsidiaries as a result of acquisitions completed in the latter half of 2007. In the first quarter of 2007 sales were mostly comprised of magnesium purchased and distributed. Operating margins were also strengthened by a more favorable pricing environment for magnesium in the first quarter of 2008.

    On a GAAP basis, net income for the first quarter of 2008 was $4.75 million, a 154% increase as compared to $1.87 million in the first quarter of 2007. Excluding certain non-cash items, net income for the first quarter of 2008 was $5.00 million as compared to $1.95 million in the first quarter of 2007. Net income from the magnesium segment of our business reached another record, accounting for $3.75 million in the first quarter of 2008, an increase of over $3.3 million from the $415,926 earned in the first quarter of 2007 and over $2.37 million from the $1.38 million earned in the fourth quarter of 2007. This 239% increase within our Magnesium segment in the first quarter of 2008 as compared to our fourth quarter of 2007 resulted from additional capacity coming on line at our production facilities acquired in 2007 and price improvements associated with newer sales contracts. These increases were realized even though the first quarter of 2008 had twelve fewer business days than the fourth quarter of 2008 as a result of the observance of the Chinese New Year. Net income from our China based operations increased to $4.01 million in the first quarter and far outpaced the U.S. based consulting operations which accounted for approximately $768,000 in net income in the first quarter.

    Basic earnings on a Non-GAAP basis were $0.23 per share before giving effect to one-time, non-cash, non-payable beneficial conversion feature and relative fair value of warrants associated with the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock offering as well as non-cash stock compensation, as compared to basic earnings of $0.15 per share, on a Non-GAAP basis, in the first quarter of 2007 before giving effect to non-cash stock compensation. As previously disclosed, the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and associated warrants were sold by the company in a private offering for $12,950,000 that closed on February 15, 2008 (the "Offering"). Pursuant to the terms of the Offering, we issued and sold 12,950 shares of our Series A Convertible Preferred Stock convertible into 1,850,000 shares of our common stock at a price of $7.00 per share together with common stock purchase warrants to purchase an aggregate of 1,850,000 shares of our common stock at a price of $8.00 per share. The one-time, non-cash, non-payable beneficial conversion feature and relative fair value of warrants with the offering totaled $5.2 million and had no effect on our net income, balance sheet, shareholder equity or cash flow in this quarter. On a diluted basis, excluding the same items, earnings for the first quarter of 2008, on a Non-GAAP basis, were $0.21 per share as compared to $0.12 per share, on a Non-GAAP basis for the first quarter of 2007. Giving effect to these non-cash items, basic and diluted loss per common share for the first quarter of 2008 on a GAAP basis were both $(0.03) per share.

    Balance Sheet

    At March 31, 2008, total assets were $108.71 million, an increase of 23% from the $88.3 million at December 31, 2007. At March 31, 2008, shareholder equity reached $59.34 million, an increase of 39% from the $42.8 million at December 31, 2007. At March 31, 2008, cash and cash equivalents were $26.83 million and working capital was approximately $60.16 million, as compared to cash and cash equivalents of $20.7 million and working capital of $40.8 million at December 31, 2007.

    2008 Financial Guidance

    As the Company sees continued robust growth and sustainable improvement in operating margins, we are raising our 2008 full year guidance with regard to net income to $26 million from our previous guidance of $24 million and management will discuss its operations and guidance in greater detail during its conference call today, May 8, 2008 at 4:30 PM EDT.

    Commenting on the quarter, Mr. Siegel, President of China Direct, Inc. stated, "We are pleased with the growth trajectory of our operations in China. The significant investments made by management, particularly in magnesium production, are now beginning to be evidenced in our operating results. We continue to see pricing improvements in our average magnesium contract prices as well as margin improvement from our added production capabilities. We are pleased to have closed on our first magnesium joint venture in Inner Mongolia in the quarter and look forward to closing on Xinjin Magnesium in the near future. We remain excited by the opportunities we are seeing in China and continue to seek out and review potential acquisition candidates for the benefit of our shareholders. We believe we are in an exceptional position to continue to build on the momentum created in the first quarter."

    The following table reconciles the calculation of net income (loss) per share on a basic and fully diluted basis from the amounts reported in accordance with generally accepted accounting principles ("GAAP") to such amounts before giving effect to the non-cash deemed dividend deduction related to the Series A Convertible Preferred Stock and associated warrants (the "Preferred Stock and Warrants") and the non-cash compensation.

    China Direct Commences Magnesium Production at Two New China Facilities Adding 14,000 Metric Tons of Annual Capacity
    Monday May 12, 8:30 am ET


    DEERFIELD BEACH, Fla., May 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- China Direct, Inc. (Nasdaq: CDS - News), a U.S. company that owns controlling stakes in a diversified portfolio of Chinese entities and assists Chinese businesses in accessing the U.S. capital markets, today announced that two of its China subsidiaries have commenced operations at their newly constructed magnesium production facilities located in China. Pan Asia Magnesium Company, Limited ("Pan Asia") has commenced production at its third 6,000 metric ton magnesium manufacturing facility and Baotou Changxin Magnesium Company, Limited ("Baotou Changxin") has commenced production at its first 8,000 metric ton magnesium manufacturing facility.



    Pan Asia has now reached its planned annual magnesium production capacity of 18,000 metric tons on an annual basis. Management estimates that Pan Asia will be capable of generating annual revenues of approximately $60 million per year assuming an average price for magnesium of $3,500 per metric ton.

    Baotou Changxin can now produce 8,000 metric tons of magnesium on an annual basis. Management expects Baotou Changxin to commence production of an additional 4,000 metric tons of magnesium in June of 2008, bringing the total annual production capacity at Baotou Changxin to 12,000 metric tons in June of 2008. Management further estimates that Baotou Changxin will be capable of generating annual revenues of approximately $42 million per year assuming an average price for magnesium of $3,500 per metric ton.

    With the additional magnesium production capacity at Pan Asia and Baotou Changxin, China Direct will have manufacturing capability to produce approximately 50,000 metric tons of magnesium on an annual basis in June of 2008.

    Commenting on the completion of the Pan Asia and Baotou Changxin facilities, Dr. James Wang, Chairman and CEO of China Direct, stated, "We have accelerated China Direct's investment in our magnesium segment, as we continue to see industry trends remaining favorable if not gaining momentum for the foreseeable future. We believe the demand for resources will remain strong and current price levels are sustainable for the foreseeable future. Additionally, the Chinese government has recently closed down several magnesium producers using coal fueled energy generation facilities in Shanxi's Yuncheng city area as they do not meet current environmental standards. We have invested significant capital to construct more energy efficient and environmentally responsible facilities and believe that we are well positioned in that regard. Further shut downs of other competitors may create supply disruptions which we believe would bolster magnesium prices. We expect our new production to be sold into a very strong pricing environment and as a result we anticipate operating margins to continue to trend higher in our magnesium segment. We intend to continue to position our magnesium segment to be a leading force in magnesium production worldwide as we remain committed to adopting more environmentally responsible and more energy efficient magnesium manufacturing technologies."
