Anyone notice how the price dropped nearly two bucks after SSNC announced record earnings yesterday? The only reason I could figure out was some traders were hoping to scare off some naive investors to sell first thing this morning so they could pick up more at a cheaper price. Or am I seeing motives where none exist? Glad to see SSNC is up again this morning.
Sentiment: Strong Buy
A downgrade, huh? I missed that. I understand why they removed the $48 target while still calling it market perform. Thanks for the info.
what you all said doesn't change the reality that ricci will still pocket another $30m. Until that changes... who cares? The BOD,CI, shareholders have to change his comp plan.
" I don't recall an announced deal between Intel and Nuance ...
FYI there've been several. This one from 1/14/14:
LAS VEGAS—PCs from Acer, Dell, HP and Lenovo will soon include Nuance’s Dragon Assistant, the speech giant’s technology for tweeting, Facebooking, and playing music using voice commands.
Nuance announced the partnerships here at CES, for both PCs and tablets running the Intel Core and Atom processors. Nuance executives don’t necessarily envision the technology being used at the office. Instead, Dragon Assistant will be constantly running on the new PCs, ready to answer questions such as “Who directed Pulp Fiction?”
And this one from last January:
Media Advisory: Nuance and Intel Announce Collaboration to Voice-Enable Ultrabook™ Devices
Google decides to give their Voice Reco away for free and NUAN falls into a black hole. In that scenario the shorts make out quite well. Who knows what they know?
I agree. Just a few million over previous, lousy forecast. The good news is, at least, it's not going to be worse. Stock should go up a little, but I'd be surprised if it even topped $16 let alone $20.
By integrating with Intel's processor, NUAN takes a another giant step towards becoming ubiquitous.... aka Siri. But what is the revenue from this deal? If Ricci gave it away for free, then it means nothing in the near term, which is what I suspect. It's a tough call... when to stop giving your product away just to buy market share, and when to capitalize on that position. I hope we find the truth out soon.
Wow, can you say cha ching, cha ching? Pay day yesterday for the directors and 3 or 4 officers. The directors each got 15k shares for $.001 each. At around $15 and change that's $225,000 +. Just for showing up a couple of times a year and doing what Ricci tells you? Oh, yeah, they did have to pull an all nighter recently to come up with the poison pill to protect their little nest egg. Good job guys... uh, what did your shareholders get in their stocking? Come on Carl, throw these rascals out!
What will it bring to NUAN? I'm getting a little bit tired of this... should get a life, but still have this nagging suspicion that when the chips are down, that's when the profits come. Whirlpool/vortex.
#6??? A couple of weeks ago when this topic first came up he was a close second. Wonder what he's done recently to come up in the polls?
Just received my 14A Proxy urging me to vote on Directors, Stock Plan and Executive Compensation (shareholder meeting 2/3). While my handful of shares won't make much impact, I certainly think CI's will.
Just read the PR on Jet Blue customer service using NUAN/Nina to be the recognition behind their online customer experience app. This is going to be a huge market for NUAN. I love my SIRI, everyday finding new ways to use it. To calculate my gas mileage, I used to bring up my calculator after filling the tank, then dividing miles driven by gallons. Pain in the #$%$ Now I just ask SIRI " 342 divided by 17.3" and get the answer. Call centers are all going to be using NUAN very soon.
Probably why APPLE didn't buy NUAN - though it could be a big mistake. SIRI could almost be considered a new OS. If APPLE bought NUAN and developed it faster and better than anyone else, it could be powering not only customer service apps, but appliances, thermostats, bank loans, you name it. I wish NUAN would develop an app that could answer my mother-in-laws calls and answer her questions, only transfer to me if NINA couldn't... or if the Patriots were not on TV.
