Compuware (CPWR +1.6%) has spiked over the last 20 minutes, but is well off its highs, after Reuters reports the enterprise software/services firm is "talking to buyout firms to gauge investor interest." Compuware is said to have held "early talks" with P-E firms Blackstone and TPG, among others. The company, which currently trades at $11.82, has spurned an $11/share offer made by Elliott Associates in December.
