1) Sirius has a built a strong foundation. The heavy work is completed with solid infrastructure and funding.
2) Three superior satellites in the sky with a backup on the ground (They will probably last 2 or 3 times longer than XM's 2 'birds').
3) Marketing and advertising building nicely.
4) New hardware coming into the market place on a regular basis.
5) Satellite radio is still basically undiscovered BUT that is beginning to change by advertising and especially word of mouth from satisfied customers.
6) The Subscribers will grow exponentionally. Slow at first but excellerating like an upside down pyramid.
7) Satellite radio is beyond the "concept" status now and is PROVEN and will be increasingly accepted by the listening public. Nearly 1 million subscribers between XM and SIRI. People WILL and ARE paying for crystal clear reception, great music and programs with little or no commercials.
8) The monthly cost of a subscription is cheaper than ONE good CD.
The bashers (the majority) and hypsters will continue like ticks on a wild hog's butt. Just ignore the flak. Slow and steady will win the race here. The basher's task is similar to attempting to hold back a rising tide. In the long run it's an impossible task. SIRI is JUST GETTING STARTED. Think longterm--out a few months or years. This is the "ground floor".
I don't care if you buy or sell. Just do your own research and make wise decisions.
Everything that person said for the most part is correct but it still doesn't eliminate the fact that Sirius is lagging. I don't get it either how Clayton never says anything. This company is weird if you ask me when they say they can't report anything unless it's at earnings. A lot of companies give progress reports other than at earnings. They reiterate earnings and give a some update as to where things stand. Truly, one of the biggest reasons I still think this is speculative is because of their managment.
