Wall Street Slightly in Red on Monday

Nuance announces preliminary results

U.S. stock markets are set to open slightly lower on Monday after ending higher on Friday and today’s expectation of a quick resolution to the government shutdown.

Shares of Nuance Communications Inc. (NASDAQ:NUAN) traded higher on premarket Monday session on the back of a first-quarter profit and sales outlook that was higher than expectations.

Now, the voice and language services company expects earnings per share in the range of 15 cents to 18 cents a share, compared with a loss of 8 cents a share, in the same trimester a year ago. Further, adjusted earnings per share are projected to be 26 cents to 27 cents, above the estimations of 22 cents. Moreover, net revenue is expected to be between $500.0 million and $503.0 million and adjusted revenue between $507 million and $510 million.

All the figures are higher than before due to strength in the health care, automotive and imaging segments.
