Can anyone name another stock like this?
When you configure an advanced weapon to bring down an aircraft at 34,000 feet and then launch that weapon, there's no possibility of defining the outcome as an accident. That is what happened here.
Is there anywhere else Ukrainian separatists could have gotten a weapon capable of shooting down a civilian aircraft flying above 30K feet?
" I'd prefer it not be Apple or Samsung because I think you maxize the value by not having any competitive conflicts"
I think we'd maximize value if both of these companies bid for Nuance.
Don't be a stupid Fox echo-head. Those kids are fleeing brutality, not following enticements. The US enticement idea is simply a GOP/Fox attempt to score political points off the dire misery of innocent kids.
Here are the facts outside the Fox echo chamber:-
Why are Unaccompanied Immigrant Children Fleeing to the United States Now?
The current enormous influx of unaccompanied immigrant children is a humanitarian crisis: the majority
are fleeing gang and gender violence in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras; some of the poorest
countries in the region.
The populations of these countries suffer from high crime rates; Honduras has the highest murder rate in
the world. Some areas are under the control of criminal gangs; fear of forced gang recruitment is a
leading cause for boys to migrate, and threatened or actual sexual assault is a leading cause for girls to
migrate. Local police are often corrupt and governments are unable to protect civilians.
Rumors of a lax U.S. immigration policy are not the primary cause for the current influx. The UN High
Commissioner for Refugees has documented a 435% increase in asylum applicants from El Salvador,
Honduras, and Guatemala arriving throughout the region, not only in the United States. There has been
no comparable increase in migrants from other Central or South American countries. If a perceived
change in immigration policy was fueling migration, one would expect comparable numbers of immigrant
children from other regional countries and migration would be directed solely at the United States.
Comprehensive immigration reform has been delayed for nearly a decade since the last serious attempt
to pass a bill in 2006. Many parents residing in the United States have become desperate to reunite with
their children while they are still children. Families simply can no longer endure separation and have lost
hope that legal channels will open to allow for family reunificatio
The minute a GM car comes off the production line, it should be tagged:- "Future recall".
That way, GM wont need to spent hundreds later on identifying the car!
You are trying to converse with the Fox echo chamber. Rational responses are not possible.
It would appear a sale, or a completely new management team, are the only options at this point.
A p/e of 12.5, given the growth rate here, is a discount of between 40% and 60%
The Street need to catch up and then the pps needs to correct. This should be trading closer to $50.
If Samsung makes an offer, I expect it'll be around $27.50. This will be followed by a $35 bid from Apple, forcing Samsung to counter-bid $40. What happens next I have not yet worked out. It's a crazy situation. If only Nuance had not spent the last 15 years buying up all the patents in the space, it would be easier to figure out.
It may not happen but if Samsung makes an offer, this could wind up being the mother of all bidding wars.
We would have two companies, who already spend vastly more litigating each other than most companies ever make, in a fight for the holder of the vast majority of voice recognition patents, an unavoidable part of the future of the products of both companies. Neither can allow the other to gain control of those patents.
The obvious solution would be for Apple & Samsung to come to an arrangement where a third company is allowed to buy Nuance but, of course, such an arrangement would be illegal.

They've increased "..authorized shares of Common Stock from 150 million shares to 250 million shares "
and to allow shareholders express their gratitude to management for the additional dilution, let's give management another 5 million shares - only fair I suppose. Why should management have to suffer dilution?
