NUAN, FTNT, CTRX, and SAP Under StockCall’s Microscope Provides Stock Research on Nuance Communications Inc., Fortinet Inc., Catamaran Corp., and SAP AG

New York City, New York -- (May 21, 2013)

The fiscal cliff issue in the U.S. created a great deal of economic uncertainty, and forced businesses to scale back investments. As businesses lowered spending on technology amid the uncertainty, the application software industry faced significant challenges. The industry also struggled due to the crisis in the Eurozone, and a slowdown in China. However, since the start of this year, global economic environment has improved. This should boost business confidence. Technology spending could rebound in the next few quarters if businesses are confident about the state of the global economy. On Monday, shares of application software companies ended on a mixed note as the broad market struggled. Among the major movers were Nuance Communications Inc. (NASDAQ: NUAN), Fortinet Inc. (NASDAQ: FTNT), Catamaran Corp. (NASDAQ: CTRX), and SAP AG (NYSE: SAP).
