Graduated Security

A stock that was once traded on one stock exchange that moves to another, more prestigious exchange. For example, a company may move its listing from the Pacific Stock Exchange to the New York Stock Exchange. A graduated security makes this move to increase interest in the company and thereby increase its trading volume.
