Can Pandora Play a Better Tune in 2014: Chart of the Day

Pandora shares had an incredible 2013: the stock is up about 60 percent over the last 12 months. But, lately, Pandora shares have stalled: The stock is down about six percent to start this year. It isn't 100% clear what accounts for the discrepancy, but it looks as if major moves into the music industry are coming from players like Apple (which bought Beats, in part for its streaming capabilities), Google, and even Twitter. Next, it remains to be seen if Pandora can push into new, old, verticals, like streaming straight to automobiles, or if it will get whacked by D.C. lobbyists' pitch to pay musicians differently.
