    Nuance (NUAN +4.6%) spikes as Dow Jones reports the company has hired Goldman to help find a buyer - there was a rumor along these lines two weeks ago. If true, look for Carl Icahn to take an active interest in the proceedings. 11.8% of Nuance's float was shorted as of March 28, but that was before Icahn disclosed his 9.3% stake.

    A rumor Nuance (NUAN +3.3%) has hired Goldman to explore strategic alternatives is fueling a rally in shares of the voice recognition giant. Needless to say, Carl Icahn's newfound interest in the company have much to do with investor hopes for a major payoff. 11% of the float was shorted as of March 15.

    Nuance (NUAN) +9% AH on news Carl Icahn has amassed a 9.3% stake. Is Icahn looking to make an activist push? Nuance's acquisition-fueled growth strategy has received some criticism over the years.

    The Street showed no mercy to Nuance (NUAN -18.5%) in response to its EPS miss and forecast for multiple quarters of weakness in healthcare and EMEA sales. Goldman thinks Nuance's goal of $1B in FY13 healthcare sales is now at risk, and Needham (downgrading to Hold) is concerned about guidance for a 200-250 bps FY13 gross margin drop, worse than a prior forecast. Management suggested on the earnings call it's counting on clinical documentation software sales and PC/mobile OEM deals to drive future growth.

    Nuance (NUAN) now -14.6% AH thanks to its FQ1 EPS miss and light FQ2/FY13 guidance. On its earnings call, management blamed the guidance on declining healthcare transcription volumes thanks to the adoption of electronic records and Dragon, soft EMEA sales due to macro issues, and declining Windows software sales due to PC demand. The healthcare issues are expected to last a few quarters. Healthcare sales (51% of profits) +3% Y/Y in FQ1, Mobile/Consumer +17%, Enterprise +10%, Imaging +6%. On-demand solutions now 31% of sales (27% a year ago).
