    I have a pretty good feeling about Nuance Communications Inc., ticker symbol "NUAN".

    They're the company that created the technology that makes Siri work on iPhones.

    What interests me is that Carl Icahn has been buying up millions of shares and had a couple of people appointed to the board of directors. Possible takeover in motion?

    Splashwut?

    That's a less riskier way to go for sure. Diversification is always a prudent strategy. :grad:

    I'm extremely ignorant but, If Icahn has bought tons of stocks, hasn't it driven the price up?

    Indeed...love the blended funds...2020, 2030 etc...pretty steady earners.

    Plus, the place we go is pretty good about advice...luckily, it is all through my work. And, we have a good contribution matching program.
