Icahn ups Nuance stake again, shares +1.2% AH

  • Carl Icahn continues to bet Nuance's (NUAN) big YTD decline represents a buying opportunity. Just six days after disclosing his firm has raised its stake in Nuance to 18.7%, the media-friendly activist investor discloses he bought another 1.38M shares from Dec. 6-10.
  • The latest purchases leave Icahn with a 19.2% stake in the voice recognition software leader.

  • (NUAN) likely bottomed last week or so (see here: http://seekingalpha.co...) but at this rate, Icahn, who is now worth more than Soros because of 2013 performance, should just buy out Nuance.

  • Well the annual shareholder meeting is only about six weeks away, right?

     

    Something's brewing that's for sure.

     

    Also, a little curious as to why NUAN has yet to announce their 2013 Annual Financial Analyst Day, which had already occurred by this time last year.

  • (NUAN) should be a classic January effect play.

     

    Should move significantly higher in the new few weeks.

     

    Now holding $25K myself after initially buying last week.
