This expression
selects all NodeID nodes from your file, for which another NodeID node exists,
which in turn has not the same string value. I guess this is true for every 
NodeID node.

You want 
i.e. if you don't find another node with the same string value then this
node seems to be interesting for you.

BTW, I'm a little bit confused about your xsl:for-each construction.
I believe you should access . or any other relative location path in 
your xsl:if, not $YESTERDAY_PRODUCT again.
