  HONG KONG, May 22 (Marketwire) -- 
Today, www.BrightonMarkets.com announced new reports highlighting Atlas
Energy LP (NYSE: ATLS) and Permian Basin Royalty Trust (NYSE: PBT). Gain
market insight with full analysis and research downloads available at
www.BrightonMarkets.com/index.php?coa=ATLS&cob=PBT.

    Economic fundamentals leading into 2012 have set a generally positive
pace with GDP growth likely to pick up through the coming year. However,
there are several important caveats to note as the world economy
continues to face headwinds and risks weigh to the downside. Positive
outlooks are conditional on fiscal policy in payroll taxes and
unemployment insurance benefits and upon the easing of the European debt
situation. A repeat of volatility experience in 2011 is likely in 2012,
as perceptions about the strength of the U.S. economy and the euro zone
will vary over time as events unfold.

    Despite the current situation, our team continues to identify high
momentum situations with growth potential - there remains strong
opportunity within careful discretion.
