Research Strategy

Daily stock price data for ChromaVision prior to 2005 does not exist in the public domain. The company used the ticker symbol "CVSN" on the NASDAQ stock exchange, but NASDAQ does not have any trading records for that symbol. We have also checked stock information databases such as Reuters, TeleTrader and ADVFN. However, those databases did not contain any information about ChromaVision. The only information we managed to find was trade data on Reuters for the CVSN ticker, but that data was about another company, Cervantes Corp Ltd, that traded under the CVSN ticker symbol on the Australian stock exchange. We have also checked the annual reports of ChromaVision, but they only included the last reported price at the end of the fiscal year.
