WARNING to Pandora amateur BASHER RETARDOS: After re-examining the Pandora technicals, now looking for a 120% PLUS return into the close of the year....a superior yield that will match or exceed the great NFLX, another one of my NO-RISK Dow/Nasdaq favorites!!!!!
No way! Best company ever will have a cure for cancer soon!
Comscore shows Pandora app usage has fallen from 43.2% in March to 42.9% in April 2015
Also a big decline YoY
Sentiment: Strong Sell
that couldn't be posible... i've heard on yahoo boards that pandora is the best stock like *ever*.. isn't it..?
They are a bunch of old prunes, what do you expect them to say at this point. They should have thought about these things when they were young and signed away the best part of their money to be famous. Get real!
Ok, maybe a little difficult to predict future events, unless you are someone challenged by replying with more then one sentence at a time.
I was reading the recent Q1 earnings report last night and saw they had a 19% increase in revenue compared to Q1 of 2014, which sounds pretty good, especially with increases in advertising revenue, mobile revenue and a record in total listener hours. Since they did not mention percentage increase of total Operating Expenses to compare with, I did the math and it came to a 25% increase with SG&A up 38%. Does anyone know if the stock based compensation of $23m is included in the SG&A or is it a Cash Flow statement item? (This seems to be a quarterly event, as they forecast $31m in Q2.) Anyways, I find it hard to understand how this company with operating expenses larger then it revenue flow and where the operating expenses are growing faster than its revenues can ever succeed in an increasingly competitive market. Am I missing something?
Also, does anyone understand what impact the Copyright Royalty Board (CRB) royalty rate decision later this year will have on the industry?

Pandora Internet Radio Wins Nod to Buy South Dakota Station

...ASCAP asked the FCC to block Pandora’s purchase, in part because it would result in lower licensing payments. The FCC in its June 2 letter said it doesn’t examine business motivations for buying stations and presumes an applicant will serve its local community.
SoundCloud, the music streaming service, signed a licensing deal with Warner Music Group back in November. Now, they've come to terms with more than 20,000 independent labels, as The New York Times reports.
The labels were represented by Merlin, an agency that manages digital rights for independent labels. The deal will allow them to receive royalties, which Soundcloud began to pay last year.
“Independent creators have always been at the core of SoundCloud, and with this partnership we’re thrilled to extend new revenue-generating opportunities to thousands of independent labels,” SoundCloud founder Alexander Ljung told the Times in a statement.
Last month, Sony pulled the music of its artists from SoundCloud after a licensing agreement could not be reached.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Relatively new to investing and encouraged to broaden my information net, so here I am ...
I understand that Pandora is ad revenue based and Apple will be subscription based. I also understand that while many consumers prefer not paying for stuff, that others can and are willing to pay for convenience and that Apple has a huge following. My question is, how much "recidivism" (percentage wise) will Pandora experience due to Apple "addiction" and will it matter?
Tried to warn my POOR sweet amateur Pandora, Dow, and Nasdaq BASHER RETARDOS and BASHER LOSERS, again:
The Pandora BOTTOM is in, give or take a few pennies, and should UPTREND STRONGLY into the close of 2015! The imminent Spotify IPO will rocket Pandora through the roof, as the public interest will be whipped up.....so sending condolences in advance for the TOTAL WIPE OUT of all the WRONG WAY Pandora BASHER SUCKERS 2015 PUTS! LOL
Pandora = MASSIVELY UNDERVALUED!!! At any moment, once the Pandora, Dow, and Nasdaq PUT WRITERS finish DUPING the Pandora BASHER SUCKERS, then Pandora will rejoin the longstanding Dow/Nasdaq SUPER BULL market UPTREND....and when it does, the great Pandora will GAP UP repeatedly, WIPING OUT most of the Pandora 2015 PUTS in a heartbeat!!
No Catman, no bizarre conspiracy theories, I’ll leave those for Saddaasd, just timely and prudent business practices.
BTW, iTunes Radio has been trying to “ramp up” since 2013 and despite having very deep pockets has totally failed. But I’m sure this New and Improved version will be the magic they need, LOL
Sentiment: Strong Buy
lol you going to be disappointed cause it was old news confirming the purchase of #$%$ radio station in middle of nowhere so they can push lower rates vs BMI in which they already lost and got their rates increased. So in the end, they wasted 600k on a radio station for no reason. lol
Sentiment: Strong Sell
