Deutsche Bank Reiterates Buy Rating, $30 PT on Nuance Communications on Lowered Guidance
In a report published Friday, Deutsche Bank reiterated its Buy rating and $30.00 price target on Nuance Communications (NASDAQ: NUAN).
Deutsche Bank noted, “NUAN reported an in-line quarter at $492.4m/$0.35 vs. our $492m/$0.35 and consensus of $492.4m/$0.36. With strong on-demand bookings that typically delay revenue, the company lowered its guidance for the full-year slightly, from a midpoint of $2,196m/$1.89 to $2,171m/$1.81. The company reiterated its goal of reaching $1bn in Healthcare segment revenue and continued investments in sales capacity for FY13. We reiterate our Buy rating and $30 PT as a greater portion of on-demand revenue should lead to a stickier and more profitable business longer-term.”
Nuance Communications closed on Thursday at $24.55.
