Also from Gabby:<<Nielsen was once a part of ACNielsen all under the Dun & Bradstreet umbrella. Then joined IMS Health under the Cognizant umbrella. Then spun-off to become independent. The day it went independent, NMR stock was trading at 8/share. Today it is at 30/share. Aren't they doing fine on their own? >>NMR is certainly doing much better without a parent company. I don't think any of the D&B/Cognizant/etc. really ever understood the business, they just thought they did. D&B tried to impose a lot of structure on Nielsen Media - which never worked. If you go back to the days of Art Nielsen and Art Nielsen Jr. though (pre-1984), the Media side of the company was doing excellent - that's how they got the dominant presence.bclrocks(p.s. Enough postings for you, Robster?)
