    Financial Summary

    CBAI announced recently that it has filed its Form 10-Q for the first quarter ended March 31, 2010, with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

    The Company announced that revenue decreased to $839,343 in the quarter ended March 31, 2010, compared to $941,938 in the same period in 2009. This reflects continued de-emphasis of Rainmakers International, CBAI’s advertising company, with total focus on becoming a “pure,” worldwide, stem cell company. Revenues from the storage of umbilical cord blood stem cells was up slightly in 2010 compared to the first quarter of 2009, which the Company said signals a stabilizing of the overall market for cord blood processing and storage.

    Technical Analysis

    Source: http://stockcharts.com

    CBAI is below its 13-day moving average. This bearish sign is even more significant because the moving average is also trending lower.

    CBAI’s recent volatility has been greater than normal. This is evidenced by the increased distance between the upper and lower Bollinger Bands. These bands measure volatility using standard deviation and a large width is due to high volatility. Additionally, CBAI is trading near its lower Bollinger Band. This suggests that the stock price is low relative to its recent price action.

    The MACD for CBAI currently indicates a strong bearish signal for two reasons. First, the MACD is below the signal line, a 9-day moving average. Second, the MACD is below the critical level of zero, which implies that the underlying moving averages are trending lower.
