14:28 EDTFOSLFossil technical notes before earnings
In the prior three months the shares have underperformed the broader averages with a loss of over 8%. The downtrend in the shares on a longer-term basis has been underway since shares hit a peak of price in early November 2013. That downtrend has been characterized by volatile bursts higher in price away from the broader downtrend that fail to hold. On disappointing news, a breakdown below $100 would seem highly probable. For the prior two years the $100 area has been both resistance and then support. A break below $100 would be therefore more technically significant. Support below on an increasing band of disappointment would be at $97.96, $92.80, and $89.33. If the news is more positive than expected, a move up to the recent pivot at $108.08 would be the first major resistance encountered. A breakout above $110 would turn the shares from bearish to neutral with additional resistance then at $114.12. The short-base is large at over 8% of the float short which could add to a potential short-squeeze on stronger than expected news.

11:52 EDTNUANNuance shares fall over 10% as Q3 results, guidance disappoints
Shares of voice and language solutions provider Nuance (NUAN) are sharply lower after the company's guidance missed analysts' expectations. WHAT'S NEW: The company reported third quarter earnings per share 27c on revenue of $486.8M, against analysts' estimates of 27c and $498.56M, respectively. The company's Q3 non-GAAP operating margin was 23.5%, down from 28.1% in the year-ago period. Despite the underperformance in revenue, Nuance said its EPS came in at the midpoint of its guidance range as a result of cost reductions and expense control. The company also reported year over year bookings growth of 17% and deferred revenue growth of 32%. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Looking ahead, Nuance forecast fourth quarter EPS of 24c-29c and $500M-$520M, both falling well short of analysts' estimates of 34c and $540.49M, respectively. The comany also sees fiscal year 2014 EPS of $1.03-$1.08 on revenue of $1.97B-$1.99B, below estimates of $1.13 and $2.02B. In prepared remarks, the company said the transition to recurring revenue models continue to happen faster than it had anticipated, weighing heavily on near-term revenue growth and a bookings growth rate for recurring revenue type that is higher than overall bookings growth rate. ANALYST OPINION: This morning, Craig-Hallum shared its concerns about the competitive and operating environments in both Healthcare and Mobile segments. Although the firm said bookings were not as bad as the top-line miss suggests, Nuance's results open "another series of questions as to how far we really are through this transition." It maintained its Hold rating and cautious stance on the company. Canaccord analysts, meanwhile, view the sell-off as an over-reaction and believes the higher booking numbers make the stock relatively inexpensive. The firm is confident in Nuance's pipeline heading into Q4 and 2015. PRICE ACTION: In late-morning trading, shares of Nuance dropped $1.94, or 10.72%, to $16.16.
07:58 EDTNUANNuance sell-off an over reaction, stock inexpensive, says Canaccord
Canaccord noted Nuance reported a revenue miss but that bookings were higher. The firm is confident in Nuance's pipeline heading into Q4, expects better operating leverage in 2015 and thinks its shares will grind higher as the company transitions to a recurring revenue model. Canaccord has a Buy rating and $20 price target on the stock.

Stocks on Wall Street opened in positive territory and have remained there throughout the morning. There was little in the way of a catalyst, as the economic calendar was empty, though investors may have been encouraged that there was no breakdown in the ceasefire agreement between Israel and Gaza and no big headlines from the Russia/Ukraine border. Additionally, some may have viewed comments from Fed Vice Chair Fischer as dovish and in support of continued easing. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., no significant economic data was released. In prepared comments for a conference, Federal Reserve Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said rebounds across advanced economies have been disappointing, leading the Fed and other observers to lower their long-term expectations for growth potential in the U.S. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Kinder Morgan (KMI) advanced 10% after announcing it will consolidate its oil-and-gas holdings into one company by acquiring all of the outstanding shares of a number of its subsidiaries, including Kinder Morgan Energy Partners (KMP), Kinder Morgan Management (KMR) and El Paso Pipeline Partners (EPB). In addition to the rise in the shares of the parent, Kinder Morgan Energy shares rose 19%, Kinder Morgan Management gained 25% and El Paso Pipeline moved up 22%. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was salad and banana producer Chiquita Brands (CQB), which jumped 31% to trade above $13 per share after Cutrale Group and the Safra Group proposed to acquire 100% of the company's outstanding stock for $13 in cash each. Also higher was electric car maker Tesla (TSLA), which rose 5% after Deutsche Bank upgraded the stock to Buy from Hold and raised its price target on the shares to $310 from $220. Among the noteworthy losers was social game maker King Digital (KING), which slid 3% after the stock was downgraded at Pacific Crest to Sector Perform from Outperform. Also lower following their earnings reports were Inovio (INO), which fell over 8%, and Gogo (GOGO), which dropped nearly 6%. INDEXES: Near midday, the Dow was up 51.25, or 0.31%, to 16,605.18, the Nasdaq was up 38.19, or 0.87%, to 4,409.08, and the S&P 500 was up 10.12, or 0.52%, to 1,941.71.
