    “Local ad mix represents a revenue growth opportunity. According to Pandora, about two-thirds of the $15 billion domestic annual radio ad market comes from local ads. In Q1:14, local represented 20 percent of Pandora’s ads, up from 10 percent a year ago. Pandora does not expect to increase the number of audio ads delivered per hour (six) in 2014. Instead, top-line growth will come from the higher rates that local ads command (rates are 50-200 percent higher for local than for national), strong local sales teams across the country, and increased demand resulting from targeting.”

    You were warned by me and numerous others around here that this stock is a dog and NOT good for a long-term investment. But you dismissed everyone with an opposing viewpoint as a short and thought you were smarter than the street. Do you even look at metrics? Charts? Trends? Financials? They all tell the story. You're just skimming through for the pictures and not reading the words printed on the page

    The greatest hockey player of all time was Wayne Gretzky. He was the greatest player because he always skated to not where the puck was, but where he thought the puck was going next.
    When Pandora dropped into the 7s, I understood why and I also understood the future potential of Pandora.

    I think I know where it’s going next.

    Sorry for the attitude, but I’ve seen the trash that has been posted here since we traded at $7.08. Check out posters like Shammdora, “The Stalker” and their posting history. People that took his advice not only lost money, but missed a great opportunity to make a lot of money.
    In any case, regarding valuation, if you do some serious DD you might understand the true potential of Pandora.
    All the best,

    Now that’s a good one, a Siriusaurous talking about debt. How’s SIRI’s 4 BILLION DOLLAR debt these days? Pandora has ZERO debt and 341 million in cash, what a concept
    Too bad you Sirisaurous are totally focused on subs, you completely miss out on the $15 billion Radio Ad Market.
    BTW, how much do you pay to use Yahoo’s message board? LOL

    Well let’s see, TWTR was down 7.07%, LNKD down 6.25% and FB down 3.88%. I’d say Pandora’s is in good company.

    Interesting, but when I want to listen to music, I don’t listen to an audio book or watch a movie. And when I want to just push a couple of buttons and to listen to one of one many stations I have created and tailored to my taste, I use Pandora.
    And I and 77+ million Active Listeners might disagree with your “unbiased” trial listening experience.

    Rooker,
    I do agree with you that the vast majority of these articles are absolute trash, but this one did explain Pandora’s competition accurately. Pandora is focused on the 15 Billion Dollar radio ad market not on subscriptions and they want to be “radio” not an on demand delivery service. They have had stiff competition from all angles for about 14 years, but there is a reason Pandora currently commands about 78% of the IR market.

    Seeking Alpha actually did a good explanation of Pandora’s competition, it’s worth a read:

    Big Data Technology, Streaming Music, And Pandora's Competitive 'Moat'
    Jul. 2, 2014 11:42 AM ET
    Summary
    • Neither Apple's purchase of Beats nor Amazon's recent music launch represent direct competition to Pandora which competes for revenue with terrestrial radio broadcasters (e.g. Clear Channel, Cumulus & CBS).
    • Pandora is really a Big Data technology company which uses its industry-leading data analysis algorithms to create personalized music playlists.
    • Its big data technology distinguishes Pandora from the other music streaming/internet radio services and creates a competitive 'moat' that neither Google, nor Apple, nor Amazon (much less Spotify) can challenge.
    Undervalued & Misunderstood, Pandora Offers Long-Term Growth & Value at Current Levels

    Posyche, are you ok bud? I did try to warn you that this was just a sector pullback. Too bad you listened to Shammdora instead. You should have checked out his posting history and seen that he has been a fraud since we traded in the 7s.
