Google Inc. (NASDAQ:GOOG): Closing price $1026.40
Google’s Executive Chair Eric Schmidt has spoken his mind concerning reports that the United States government allegedly spied on his company’s data centers, characterizing such an action as “outrageous” and potentially illegal if it can be proven. Schmidt remarked to the Wall Street Journal in an interview that, “It’s really outrageous that the National Security Agency was looking between the Google data centers, if that’s true. The steps that the organization was willing to do without good judgment to pursue its mission and potentially violate people’s privacy, it’s not OK. The Snowden revelations have assisted us in understanding that it’s perfectly possible that there are more revelations to come.”
Nuance Communications Inc. (NASDAQ:NUAN): Closing price $15.99
