Made 12K this week off of some alerts! ZeusAlerts has been insane the past few weeks. Google them and get their alerts before they send out some more alerts. Absolutely amazing.
bears make money, pigs get slaughtered..congrats on your profit... sad to say you are going to lose a lot of it if you don't cover before earnings
google tried to buy Spotify last year and spotify wanted 10 Bil... I'm not saying either P or spotify is worth 10 bil... I am saying that P is worth 5 and the market is going to take it there after earnings next week...but good luck to all the shorts...bears make money, pigs get slaughtered
you are a paid basher...if you were really short P, you would know that Goldman sachs is raising 500 mil for spotify and sources are indicating 6+ Billion valuation on the company...
Spotify financials are not disclosed publicly but they lose money just like P...
Do you know what the financial for Spotify look like? My understanding is that they are very different from P in which case you are making an amateur analogy.
A regular humpty dumpty and you know how that story ends. It will be the same for P. Pandora will be the subject of Harvard Case Studies some day. And not in a good way.
Now I remember why I put you on IGNORE previously. You say really stupid stuff. Kevin Leary has had a very successful career in business and is reportedly worth $300M at the low end, but sure, he is a dope. Do you think insults win investment arguments? But the best one is that P is worth $3 billion (used to be $8 billion) because they have a playlist??!!?? Are you fricken serious? As I have pointed out many times before, Yahoo used to have the EXACT same product P does and they shut it down in 2007 because the COULDN'T MAKE ANY MONEY and they had way more advantages in promoting it than P does. How many users did My Space have before they found the Internet graveyard? And as Sham pointed out with Bluetooth in your car P becomes even less meaningful. I just bought a new Alpine stereo for one of my classic cars and it has a Pandora button. I could care less just like lots of other people. In fact, I wish that stupid button wasn't there. Thanks for the "good luck" but you are a little late. Watching this thing lose 60% of its value from the peak last year and looking at my portfolio returns tells me I already had my "good luck".
P is worth $16-ish per share today. Have you not been paying attention? Spotify is raising money privately so they don't have to come out to the public markets and be comped against P which would kill the whole $6.0 billion valuation if you know what I mean.
So Google and Amazon don't earn ad revenue now? Again, these aren't new customers, but rather the same customers, and one can only see/hear so many ads per day. If it were new customers that would be served ads, then it's a value added proposition, but as it is, there is no added value for Google or Amazon.
But keep spreading the M&A rumors. We've seen how that worked out in the past, with the same sort of rumors pushing the stock price all the way above $40, only to lose 60% of the value once the rumors didn't pan out. In fact, one of the analysts following Pandora stated it perfectly: "We think the M&A rumors did long term shareholders a disservice by inflating the share price and the excess could have dissuaded an authentic buyer due to the price spike and the sell off destroyed $3 billion in shareholder value in the process.” And that same analyst holds an underweight rating with at PT of $16.
So pump all you like...all of these rumors and blatant misstatement of metrics and financials, and the hype around the CC next week will only result in a short-term pop followed by a hard drop, particularly when they report declines in listener hours and active listeners.
Hmmm...that "homework" statement you've used in numerous posts sounds suspiciously similar to another idiot that used to post here. Of course, once he was proved wrong, he vanished as quickly as his profits did. I don't expect any less from you once you're also proven wrong.
I overstated both Pandora paid subs and Spotify paid subs. Spotify only has 15 mil paid subs but I stated 20 mil because I expect they will grow into that at the same time Pandora gets over 5 mil.... I do my homework..
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Pandora is at 1 Billion for 2014 and growing (tune into earnings next week) and your argument for amazon and google makes no sense, apple, amazon and google would all benefit from buying 100 Mil active users and the massive AD revenue that is on the way...Pandora is very close to GAAP earnings... I think you should do some more homework
Sentiment: Strong Buy
Stop the nonsense of the unsubstantiated rumors that pumpers have been spreading for the past year to keep the price a float for the past year in which it has been deflated over 50%. You really think you can get the price up by putting something like that on a message board? You have a better chance of the price hitting $100 this year! Better yet provide a link to your rumor!
