    Will Internet Radio and the Cloud Squash Sirius XM Radio?

    Sirius XM Radio. (NASDAQ:SIRI) is a company that’s used to drawing controversy, but this week investors are worried that the lead satellite radio provider may be attracting the wrong type of attention. Concerns are rampant that upstart competitors with new business models such as Pandora radio, which will IPO this Thursday, as well as other young companies such as “Spotify” and “Beyond Oblivion” will be able to uproot Sirius XM by offering cheaper and more desirable services.

    Maxim Group Love Pandora!

    Technology was weaker, despite the buzz around the Pandora IPO. Pandora (NYSE:P), the Internet radio company, was surging 26.75% to $20.28 well above its IPO price of $16, which priced well above its expected range. Maxim Group started coverage of the company with a Buy rating and a target price of $23 saying Pandora is revolutionizing the broadcast radio business, offering both music personalization and discovery.

    Rival Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ:SIRI), the satellite radio provider, was falling 3.06% to $1.90, trading close to its calculated support at $1.86. Participants were selling Sirius on concern Pandora can use their new raised funds to go aggressively against the automobile platform, which Sirius dominates.

    Pandora IPO: Deadly to Sirius XM?

    http://www.cnbc.com/id/43410708

    In breaking down the numbers, Pandora is just 4 percent the size of Sirius and has only 2 percent the number of subscribers.
    The Pandora Road Show continues . . . hurry-hurry-hurry, step right this way!

    It seems like only yesterday a certain-someone was telling us that Pandora had "already shifted" to a subscription-based model and would soon derive 50% of their revenue from subscription fees . . . lets see how long the honeymoon lasts.

    As Howard Stern once said upon leaving the Donald Trump-Marla Maples wedding ceremony . . . "I give it 6 months"

    “We think we’ve built a business with a lot of potential and are very confident about that. We’ve had naysayers before. The company has benefited from a really clear ability to focus. We for years have kept our eyes fixed on the horizon and not gotten distracted. That’s not going to change. We’re confident about the business that we have. We’ll let our business do the talking.”
    So . . . "Mel is a Salesman" (as you have derisively referred to him on numerous occasions) . . . but Tim Westergren is not?


    btw, I agree that the IPO is a huge success; no doubt they did a brilliant pump-job. Lets see how long the honeymoon lasts.


    Question: Why do you reference the Seeking Alpha article yet provide no link?

    "I published an article on Seeking Alpha outlining some potential positives as well as pitfalls for Pandora, as well as some of the similarities between Pandora and Sirius XM in their quest to get to profits."

    http://siriusbuzz.com/pandora-ipo-a-success.php#respond
    Yup, I'm with you Spencer . . . I can't wait til Sirius XM is profitable! Does that fancy Seeking Alpha article of yours give any forecast of when you think Sirius XM might finally be profitable?


    alert to forum readers: my post is an obvious attempt at sarcasm; choice of words does matter


    Expect a rebuttal with some casual allusion to and nonsensical interpretation of "adjusted income from operations," then do your own due diligence.

    Sirius XM is profitable. We all know that. What the line is referring to was the quest to get their in an historic sense.

    Sirius XM is there. Pandora wants to get there.
    ok, I jumped the gun on that one . . . clarification has been provided; I thought for sure we were headed back to parsing "adjusted income from operations" again; my bad

    Forget Pandora. Buy Sirius XM?

    Enjoy

    http://money.cnn.com/2011/06/15/tech...n=money_latest

    Shares of the online radio king surged as much as 63% from its offering price to $26 at one point. The stock slipped from that peak, but at midday it was trading at around $18.50. At that price, Pandora's market value was about $3 billion.

    That seems a bit crazy. Pandora (P) is not profitable. It had revenue of about $137.8 million last year, which means it's trading at 21 times trailing sales.

    Compare that with satellite radio giant Sirius XM (SIRI), which is actually expected to eke out a profit in 2011. Sirius XM trades at just 2.7 times last year's sales.
    So Pandora is still trading at a heady valuation of more than 9 times its 2011 revenue run rate. Sirius XM, on the other hand, trades for just 2.5 times estimated 2011 sales.
    Pandora: The money-losing music machine

    But there's no denying that Sirius XM has suffered while investors trip over themselves to gush about Pandora.

    It may be coincidence -- or the mere fact that the entire market has sunk this month on fears about the broader economy -- but since the Pandora hype machine (not to be confused with another popular online video service) began in earnest, Sirius XM shares have taken a huge hit.

    Pandora said on June 3 that it expected to price its shares between $7 and $9. Its road show began soon after that. Since then, Sirius XM stock is down 15%, compared to just a 4% drop for the Nasdaq.

    But analysts said it's a mistake to think that Pandora will make Sirius XM irrelevant.

    "Let's not get emotional or overreact. Pandora is not going to wipe Sirius XM out," said Martin Pyykkonen, an analyst with Wedge Partners in Denver who follows Sirius XM and started coverage of Pandora Wednesday.

    "When everyone thinks alike, everyone is likely to be wrong."
    ~ Humphrey Neill, The Art of Contrary Thinking


    Despite the stock's recent Pandora-related slide, the shares of SIRI have outshined the broader S&P 500 Index (SPX) by an impressive 16.9% during the past 60 sessions. From an even longer-term standpoint, the equity still boasts a healthy 52-week gain of more than 92%, tacking on roughly 19% since the start of the year. For comparison, the SPX has added just 0.6% in 2011. Plus, SIRI is currently testing support at its 20-week moving average. This trendline, along with its 10-week counterpart, contained the equity's early-April retreat, and could once again serve as a springboard for the stock -- pointing to a potential opportunity for bulls to jump in.

    Furthermore, while the aforementioned analysts in the CNNMoney.com article may be SIRI fans, there's still plenty of room on the stock's bullish bandwagon. For instance, short interest jumped by almost 13.9% during the past month, and now accounts for a notable 8.2% of the stock's total available float. In the same skeptical vein, the security's Schaeffer's put/call open interest ratio (SOIR) of 0.43 stands higher than 90% of all others taken during the past year, implying that short-term options traders have rarely been more put-heavy on the outperformer.

    Going forward, the lingering pessimism plaguing SIRI could actually work to the stock's advantage. Should the equity's 20-week trendline launch it on its next leg higher, a short-covering spree or an unwinding of bearish bets in the options pits could help SIRI extend its longer-term journey into the black.
