"Brad M", an investor in Roctest, points to extensive analysis of Roctest and Corvis that he's posted on Raging Bull's message board: http://www.ragingbull.com/mboard/boards.cgi?board=STFZF&read=2208

Harry Chernoff, senior economist with Science Applications International Corp. (SAIC) http://www.saic.com/, says:
Roctest didn't move from $2 to $10 on the Corvis stake. In fact, it didn't move at all in the summer of '99 when the transaction that created the Corvis stake was consummated. It only increased (from about $5.50 to $10 n February '00 when it became widely known that the sale of the Roctest subsidiary to Corvis was for Corvis stock, not cash. The stock previously moved up from a few dollars a share to the $6 range in late '99 (before falling back) when the company announced it was entering the fiber optic instrumentation business.

Other than that minor point, the article is exactly right.
