    Some Positive News from MSN

    2. Sirius XM Radio
    In late 2004, when the buzz surrounding Howard Stern's planned defection to satellite radio helped drive Sirius to crazy levels of $5 to $7 a share, it was tough to talk anyone, especially Stern fans, out of paying such an insane price for the stock.

    By late 2005, though, reality started to set in. Sirius stock began a long decline.

    Last summer, sellers pushed the stock even lower after Sirius merged with rival XM Radio to form Sirius XM Radio (SIRI, news, msgs) on worries about excessive debt and recession-weary consumers tuning out satellite radio fees.

    Video: Finding stocks for $10 or less

    Now Sirius XM's stock sells for just 60 cents a share -- so low it looks like the crowd has it wrong once again. They're missing an impressive post-merger turnaround that has the company cutting costs while raising prices -- exactly what you want as an investor, said Scott Stevens of Strata Capital Management, a Beverly Hills, Calif., hedge fund. Strata’s investments are up more than 46% this year after fees as of Oct. 26, compared with 16.4% for the Standard & Poor's 500 Index ($INX). The fund owns Liberty Media Capital (LCAPA, news, msgs), which has a big stake in Sirius XM.

    "You have two companies where almost every expense line was duplicative," Stevens said. Sirius XM has been cutting its staff. It also is reducing the price of content as it renews fat contracts negotiated back in the heyday of the Sirius-XM battle. All told, the company will cut more than $400 million in costs this year, Stevens said.

    Meanwhile, Sirius XM is reaping more revenue per customer. So revenue is heading up even as the subscriber base slips. The company has also improved the terms of its deals with carmakers.

    The bottom line: Cash flow is up enormously, Stevens said. The company recently projected cash flow (adjusted for unusual charges) of more than $400 million this year, compared with a loss of $136 million in 2008.

    Barrington Research Associates analyst James Goss thinks the turnaround will boost cash flow by more than 30% a year for the next few years, to $751 million in 2011 from $439 million this year. He thinks this could propel the stock up 30% next year, to 80 cents a share, and make it double or more to $1.30 at some point in 2011.

    Buy below 60 cents. *

    Yeah, it'll be interesting to see the spin after the stock drops around .13 per share or so tomorrow.

    Of course I hope I'm wrong. I can't help but see tons of people shorting this stock over Q3 release tomorrow and waiting to make a bundle of moolah over it. I'd laugh my ass off (for once) if it actually rose on the report though. I'd love it!

    I'm sitting tight at .6347 until Q4 I guess.

    Ha-ha shorts!

    If I am reading right, we beat expectations. Evened out per share instead of .02 loss as projected. Is this correct? Man, they have been slashing operating expenses left and right too. They also cleared off some debt.

    I might just hold this through 2010.

    We shall see the spins out there today. Another interesting fact is what bassmaster mentioned...Mel's on TV also today. Wish I could see it.

    Oh well...still waving pom-pom's...alone...
