    You have to be INSANE buy this Long-Term

    Pandora is a company with no profits. No profit margin or operating margin above zero. It is in an industry that grows with new participants on a monthly basis. It takes a loss on every single free user that logs in to the free service. It's struggling to get pay subscriptions because A: there are dozens of free services out there and B: it is losing to pay business models like Spotify.

    So what? It is up 52%. So is half the market that was trading below $10. If you were smart you would have sold this P.O.S. in the mid $14s. This was a swing trade at best. There is no value here - or at Clear Channel - or at any one of the dozens of services just like this...

    This is a terrible business model with a wonderfulish freeish product that doesn't make money and I would be simply be shocked if they can manage more than 1 profitable quarter in a row... especially after this company loses half it's revenue to the Apple iSmucks and Youtube/Google. WHICH WILL HAPPEN!

    Sentiment: Sell
