NUANCE COMMUNICATIONS, INC. Research Report
Nuance, which seems to have an already clear cut contingency plan, investors don't seem to have the confidence to gamble on a company that is taking measures to increase its debt. Nuance does have an impressive portfolio that has been attracting partnerships and investment, but the company seems to be drifting away from its own portfolio by acquiring more technology. The company is reported to be profitable and cash flow positive, but these acquisitions via debt have been a cause of concern for most investors.

OVERSTOCK.COM, INC. Research Report
Overstock gained a profit of $14.7 million for all of 2012. For the full year, Overstock's revenue rose 4 percent to $1.1 billion, with EPS of 62 cents, meeting analysts' expectation of $1.1 billion and EPS of 57 cents. As long as Overstock is trending above $15.32 to $15.56, traders can look for long-biased trades in the company. Compared to its competitors (Amazon and Ebay), Overstock exists as a small player in the market. To build a stronger branding, the company spends money on targeted online advertising as well as brand advertising on TV, radio, and print. Furthermore, in partnership with Rewards Network, Overstock is launching Club O Dining Rewards which will help its Club O members earn rewards points on their dining bills. This is an opportunity for Overstock to connect with customers of Rewards Network, thus enhancing Overstock's business and its growth in size. Although Overstock is a far cry from Amazon, it employs assets that position the company better than many of its competitors - web estate, critical mass, sustainable capex, long term controlling shareholders, focus on expense control and web technology improvement, and value oriented management and private company management style. On Feb. 25, 2013, Overstock is scheduled to release its Q4 2012 earnings.

LIBERTY INTERACTIVE CORPORATION Research Report
Big gainer, media conglomerate Liberty Interactive is included in the top achievers of Q4, contributing 37 percent to the fund's return of the year. The company added millions of shares to its interest in TripAdvisor for a majority voting stake in the company, purchasing 4.8 million shares. Liberty Interactive's purchase may provide an opportunity for the company to gain major control of TripAdvisor that would create a tax-free option for the company. It will also give an opportunity for further strategic changes in the company's capital structure and to plan repurchases. This deal may strengthen Liberty Interactive's portfolio, as it already has stakes in many companies, including QVC, Evite, and Bodybuilding.com. HSN, and Expedia. On Feb 20, 2013, Liberty Interactive is scheduled to release its Q4 2012 earnings.

RAYMOND JAMES FINANCIAL, INC. Research Report
Raymond James' total revenue in the quarter totaled $1.1 billion, up 42 percent from the prior year's first quarter. Its increase in income is due to improvements in securities commissions and fees, investment banking revenues, investment advisory fees, interest income, and account and service fees. However, low interest rates and the company's expenses remain as a concern. While other asset managers have lowered their operating expenses, Raymond James' expenses rose in the fiscal first quarter after the company decided to acquire Morgan Keegan. Nevertheless, the Chief Executive Paul Reilly expects to receive $60 million to $80 million in cost synergies from the transaction, half of which has already been realized. With Morgan Keegan advisors ready to serve Raymond James, the company expects that this will result in a stronger and better positioned organization. As asset management firms rebuild the trust of their clients, companies like Federated and Raymond James will face greater demand. Judging from the reports of these companies, it seems that their relationship with their clients has improved, giving them a better position to generate income and deliver for investors.

Federated has solid growth and valuation prospects due to its impressive ability to generate strong cash flow. The company earned $450 M in FCF last year. In order to continue this momentum, Paul H. Smith, CFA and managing director of the CFA Institute at the Asia-Pacific region advises, "I think better educated investors, better educated investment professionals, putting the client first, putting ethics back at the top of the agenda, having businesses that are really driven and motivated by putting their clients first is the way to go - but all of that is a multiyear program, with Federated providing various new fund offerings that have potential to benefit its clients, thIs company seems to be on a favorable path.
