    "In this particular case, we don't yet know the precise cause, but have definitively determined that it did not originate in the battery, the charging system, the adapter or the electrical."The company also offered to take care of the damages and inconvenience caused by the fire, but the owner declined," the report said. Sounds like the potentially flammable portions of the vehicle were not the cause. In addition, the owner turned down money for his/her damages and inconvenience. News comes out right before earnings? Guess we will see how much fear this creates. Sounds like rhinoceros sh#% to force the weak hands to sell. If this "event" creates fear like the media is good at doing (keeping us living in fear). You should take appropriate action. If the story of why you purchased the stock has not changed because of this "event," then take no action.

    Let's not forget the accident in Mexico involving the Tesla Model S....."This was a significant accident where the car was traveling at such a high speed that it smashed through a concrete wall and then hit a large tree, yet the driver walked away from the car with no permanent injury.

    amatson007. I thought the same exact thing when I saw the news of the crash. How come there is no negative press against Porsche or talks of a NTSB inquiry???????????????????? The car completely burned to the ground. See for yourself.......http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gL3lL5kay4g

    The Icahn group entered into a standstill agreement on 10/7/13 with Nuance Communications. under the terms of the agreement The Icahn Group has agreed not to solicit proxies regarding any matter to come before the 2014 annual meeting. The Icahn Group has also agreed to not own more than 20% of Nuance issues and voting stock. This agreement is in effect until after the 2014 annual meeting. As we all know, The Icahn Group was awarded two board seats expanding Nuance Communications board to eleven seats. Nuance agreed to including recommending that the Company's stockholders vote in favor of the Icahn Designees.

    Putting this all into perspective. Nuance put the poison pill into effect. In my opinion, The Icahn group found the above strategy effective in order to implement the beginning of change needed to boost the share price. The Icahn group had to know what they were dealing with when increasing their position to roughly 17% currently. Mr. Icahn tweeted on 10/8/13 that he was optimistic of the impact the two board members from his group will have on Nuance Communications. He went on to write that their impact will be similar to HAIN, where the stock went from $20.20 to $79.56 over the three years his members sat on their board. I do not think The Icahn group closed their position in Nuance Communications today. The media loves to create fear and are good at it.

    Unfortunately in today's markets. Most people have short time spans and want results now! Make that Fast Money! Unfortunately in business their are cycles, turnarounds, bad management and other issues that take time to iron out. For all those interested, in my opinion, NUAN is a stock for those with a long term horizon. Of course their will be those trading bounces, pullbacks etc...In the long run NUAN can be a winner with The Icahn group making necessary changes to management, selling non-core assets or flat out effecting a sale of the company. Do your research before purchasing any stock. GLTA.....
