    Is NUAN Dead Money?

    Is Nuance dead money....I don't think so. Maybe from a technical standpoint and Opals opinion, yes. I have never been a technical investor, so I defer to experts like him to make that call. From a fundamental point a view, I think Nuance is stronger than ever. Do they have too much debt, probably so. Have they purchased too many companies in a short amount of time, perhaps. I think the recent push to expand in medical is very strategic and positive from a forward growth and competition perspective. EMR and billing are here to stay and growing quickly. The barrier to entry is high in the medical field. GOOG will have a difficult time competing here. The recent deals with EPIC and Cerner should prove to be significant, in that they are two of the largest providers of EMRs in the USA. The continued relationship with IBM and expansion of Watson is significant. I think Nina will have a material impact on earnings over the next few quarters. The voice biometrics component is significant. Apple, Intel, Dragon Drive, Dragon TV, Etc, etc, etc. VR is going mainstream.

    The big red flag is the coming "fiscal cliff", war with Iran, or other issues that impact the market in a general negative direction. I however am still young and and plan on holding awhile longer. I have already held for years, so what is a few more?

    Opal, I am surprised you bought at 26. Did you buy on the hype of being included in iPhone 4s? That seems like an emotional decision, not at technical decision.

    • Dear nmcsan,

      I managed to dig up a post from April 26th on this subject, which I posed to the board...

      "Well, back on April 24th I posted the following: "I post here because I am still a NUAN holder, though I have sold much of what I had." There, I admit it. I sold NUAN---close to my full holding {2,000 shares] on March 29th and April 2nd. Got about $26 [+/-] for the lot throughout the 2 days. Did I buy back today? You bet!

      I have been holding NUAN since then.

      Would I sell NUAN were it to get close to OR exceed $27! Depends.

      Should it get close to that mark, I'll gladly tell you then.

    • Good post NMC...show me ONE publicly traded company that is busier than NUANCE in putting $ to work
