Abstract: Given a CM elliptic curve with Weierstrass equation $ y^2=f(x)$, and a positive definite binary quadratic form $ Q(u,v)$, we show that there are infinitely many reduced integer pairs $ (u,v)$ such that the twisted elliptic curve $ Q(u,v)y^2=f(x)$ has analytic rank (and consequently Mordell-Weil rank) one. In fact it follows that the number of such pairs with $ \vert u\vert, \vert v\vert \leq X$ is at least $ X^{2-\varepsilon}$ for any $ \varepsilon>0$.
