This Week's Top Stock Pick

At The Motley Fool, we want to be accountable for our recommendations. Each week I'll make a CAPScall on my profile in Motley Fool CAPS and highlight my pick in Friday's video. This video series may also include updates on previous calls and related news.

In today's video I look at Nuance Communications (NAS: NUAN) . The stock closed last month on a high note after Apple (NAS: AAPL) reported earnings on April 24 that topped the Street's estimates, with extremely strong iPhone sales playing a key role in the jump. Nuance's Siri technology has been a runaway success for Apple's newer phones, and I suspect we'll see more from Nuance in future iProducts. Nuance also has a solid footing in the health-care and mobile industries -- factors that should continue to drive shares higher going forward.
