|About: Nuance Communications, Inc. (NUAN)|By:, SA News Editor

M&A rumors are once more giving Nuance (NUAN +2.1%) a lift. Such rumors have popped up occasionally since Carl Icahn, who now has a 17% stake in Nuance and two board seats, disclosed a position in the company in April.

Also: Deutsche is arguing Nuance's 30% YTD pullback translates into a buying opportunity, and that the voice recognition software leader's FQ4 report (due Nov. 25) could act as a turning point.

6% of the float was shorted as of Oct. 15.
