■ COVID-19 impact on FUJIFILM (4901)
This is a unique analysis using a correlation between the access logs and stock prices, taking an example of FUJIFILM Holdings Corporation which is a large chemical company in Japan.




In the period of January – April 2020, as COVID-19 continued to spread, expectations were high regarding the flu antiviral drug called “Avigan,” which was developed by a pharmaceutical subsidiary company of FUJIFILM Holdings.


In response to these expectations, many Qr1 users turned their attention to FUJIFILM stock and its stock price rose. The number of accesses on Qr1 indicated the extent of the investor’s interest in the stock.
In addition, it may be possible to use this information as a barometer to gauge the level of expectations factored into the stock price.
