    Google leads the way

    From the article Google Gashed:

    "(Google) is facing its own business model problem as customers switch from desktop to mobile advertising. Google's getting its share of clicks, but the mobile ads simply don't command the same prices and it#$%$ Google's margins."

    Hmm...sounds like the same evolution of another ad-based company that thinks people want more ads, and that those ads actually provide any sort of return for the company buying the ad space. It'll be fun to watch as these companies cannibalize the higher return desktop ads with lower demand and priced mobile ads.

    Posted this in another thread, but bears repeating since Pandora longs apparently don't understand the difference between Net Income and Net Loss:

    In FY11, FY12 and FY13, SIRI respectively reported EPS of $0.07, $0.51, and $0.06.
    In FY11, FY12 and FY13, P respectively reported EPS of $(1.03), $(0.19), and $(0.23).

    To put things in better perspective, over the last 3 fiscal years, Pandora has reported cumulative NET LOSS of $69 million, while SIRI has reported cumulative NET INCOME of $4,282 million, or better known as $4.2 BILLION. I would agree that $4.2 billion in net income is certainly big profit, particularly when compared to Pandora's stellar performance (LOL...tooo funnnny!!!)

    If you can't afford approximately $0.50 cents per day extra out of your budget, then perhaps you should find a bucket and a stick to beat on it with, and get out on the streets. I'm sure you could at least make $1.00 per day panhandling.

    "So after over 20 years in business, last Q (SIRI) made one penny"

    So you pick one quarter for your example? I know Pandora is short-sighted because the future is bleak with all the competition in the space, and expenses ballooning out of control, but why not look at the bigger picture?

    In FY11, FY12 and FY13, SIRI respectively reported EPS of $0.07, $0.51, and $0.06.
    In FY11, FY12 and FY13, P respectively reported EPS of $(1.03), $(0.19), and $(0.23).

    To put things in better perspective, over the last 3 fiscal years, Pandora has reported cumulative NET LOSS of $69 million, while SIRI has reported cumulative NET INCOME of $4,282 million, or better known as $4.2 BILLION.

    So keep proving your blatant ignorance by sticking to the tired mantra of "Sirius is obsolete and outdated" and your inability to understand advanced financial concepts like leverage by talking about the debt and outstanding shares of Sirius. I think a poll of the board would reveal that you are the undisputed joke around here.

    I wasn't aware that connected cars will only allow select internet access to Pandora. If only Sirius had an Internet Player....oh wait, they do, thus the connected car is just another way for SiriusXM users to access.

    Since you refuse to answer, I'll keep asking:

    If Pandora was 100% owned by institutions, and over half of the outstanding shares have traded hands in since 4/1, and the stock is now down almost 18% since then, who is selling and who is buying? And why is the smart money selling if the "best is yet to come"? I wonder how much JP Morgan has sold????

    And P is down over 13% since those metrics were released, as nearly 100 million shares were traded. That's over HALF the OS shares changing hands, and considering this WAS 100% owned by institutions, who do you think is selling? And if the future is so bright, why are they selling now? More importantly, who is buying and holding the bag (besides you) on a company that is way overvalued, priced for growth perfection, while growth is stalling?

    "This is a broad market decline, we follow FB and the others."

    Except neither the market nor "FB and the others" have dropped 15% in 5 trading days, and none have fallen 33% in the last month.

    "We are becoming the Car Radio."

    Except that's also not true: Satellite radio giant Sirius XM Holdings Inc. (SIRI) is the world’s largest pay-radio service (a market leader in car radio service), with a market share of about 70% of new cars in the US. Some 60 million cars are currently fitted with factory-installed radio satellite services—a figure expected to rise to 100 million cars in the next five years.

    A Pandora BUTTON is installed in 33% of new cars in the US, with no inherent stand-alone functionality.

    Certainly looks like that's coming up, and quickly. High volume to the downside again. I'd say that the institutions are unloading some shares, since this is reportedly held 101% by institutions. I feel bad for whoever is buying.

    I'll answer your question "Special P", even though you refuse to answer any contrarian posters' questions.

    Paid basher: Nope

    Idiot with no life: Considering you've posted 1,481 times on this board, 98% of which is copy/pastes of other people's posts, cliched nonsense, or pure speculation that has no basis in reality, and I've posted 558 times with relevant thoughts, financial analysis, questions as to the accuracy of management talking points, the over-valuation of a company priced as a growth company that is no longer growing, and intelligent counterpoints to your babbling ignorance, perhaps you should take a look in the mirror and ask yourself who the idiot with no life is.

    No guts: I stand behind my convictions, and am willing to admit where I was wrong, unlike you. If I had no guts I could just disappear, as I expect you will when you're unrealized gain becomes an unrealized loss. In the meantime I expect you'll stick around, desperately pumping the deflating carcass of this company after the bloat, and still trying to convince people that you have a cost basis of $8.

    New Survey on Pandora

    by tpljmpr_50 Apr 4, 2014 2:52 AM
    shammdora shammdora Apr 4, 2014 10:24 AM Flag

    "Commercials are the #1 complaint." It's not going to get better either, as the only way Pandora can significantly increase revenue is to crank out more commercials. And with barely 1 million songs in the catalog, once a user starts thumbing down tracks, the pool of songs that the MGP will pull from becomes exponentially smaller. Eventually one is left with a jukebox that has 40 songs available to play from, over, and over, and over, all while having to endure tedious commercials that are not prompting anyone to buy anything, particularly all of those kids in college that have no disposable income. When will the advertisers start pulling out from Pandora or negotiating lower rates upon the realization that there is ZERO return on their ad spending?

    Nah, I think I'll stick around. That deal is a little too convenient for you to not have to defend all of your past pumping as this continues to sink, isn't it? Of course, when it really bombs, I expect you'll run and hide, never to be seen again.

    Also, if I don't post, then you'll have nothing to post, considering your posts consist solely of copying and pasting my posts.

    No doubt. The funny thing is he can do it all he wants, I still stand behind my conviction that this stock was never worth the IPO price, let alone $40. I may have been wrong in my predictions as to how far beyond any sane valuation this could have been pumped, but now that insiders and institutions have made their nut, and the realization that growth is stalling is sinking in, it's starting to look like Pandora's "best is yet to come" was a one-hit wonder.

    You can take that one step further, and after compensating for the difference in number of days, each active user on average only listened half an hour longer in March.

    So active users growth has stalled (in fact, has declined since 12/31 by 1 million), and listener hours are now stalling. But don't forget...."the best is yet to come!!!!"

    If you read posyche's posts, he/she is a trader, and positions vary day to day based on his/her technical analysis, either buying or shorting short term positions. At least that's what I infer from the posts, and is why sentiment changes to follow the technicals.
