Will Liberty buy even more and will the stock repurchase continue? These are the critical questions.

I have a brand new car with a SIRI/XM receiver and I cannot access the premium channels (which is the only reason to have satellite radio). It is actually easier to access the SIRI/XM app on my phone and bluetooth it into the car, but at that point I can listen to whatever I want for much cheaper anyway.

Even if I could access the premium content easier, the company has shown zero skill with talent management. The company pays celebrities millions of dollars to use their name on a channel, while the celebrity puts in a maximum of two weeks of work into the channel for an entire year. Additionally, they fired some of their best talent for something he did in his personal life, even though this product is supposed to be uncensored.

I am in my early thirties and I don't know anyone my age or younger that pays for this product. The bottom line is, this technology is seriously outdated and I am actually a little embarrassed to have it in my car. Everyone I know has the "cord cutting" mentality and as young people get out of their student loans and start buying new cars, they could care less if it comes with satellite radio. If I sell my car in 10 years, I fully expect the new buyer to look at my satellite receiver as I would look at a car from the 1980's with a corded phone in it- a fancy at the time, but completely unnecessary accessory.

With NFL season coming up and fantasy football players on a rise, this should drive up sales since there's an immediate need to be well informed while on the road.

Price increase has been announced and no fall-out (churn) and costs will be coming down.

I'm stuck between wanting to think this company will do well in the future. They did manage to stop the civil war that threatened to end Sirius and XM altogether. They do provide music for just about every taste. They do market the hell out of themselves through new vehicle promotions and then follow up subscription discounts after the trial period. Despite all the good I'm skeptical of how long satelitte radio can continue to charge a fee. Standard AM/FM radio is subsidised by local companies and ad placement, SiriusXM claimed $1.15B net receivables in 2012. There were about 22million subscribers that year. I'll assume that each forking out a range between $5-$10 a month on average due to discounts and incentives. A conservative estimate becomes $5/Month = $60/Year x 22,000,000 subcribers = $1.32B. There is an obvious flaw in the assumptions, but not enough to discount the fact that Sirius' revenue is entirely subscription based.

I'm illustrating that point because I had SiriusXM free for a year, I liked it, I got it for another 6 months at $29.99...then I cancelled it. If I can play pandora or stream music through bluetooth and auxillory cables, or transfer music to a hard-drive (options that pretty much all new vehicles come standard with), then why fork out the $14.49/month? I think that the subscription plugs will continue for another year or two but in time those subs will transfer to spotify, pandora, and other music choices

Satellite radio? I like radio waves coming from space better than sitting in my neighbhorhood. We aren't in the stone age any more people. Howard Stern...Shade 45 - Eminem's radio station??? Where else are you going to hear brand new music with ACTUAL DJs that don't play commercials or the same garbage every day. You should be ashamed of letting commercials ruin your trek to work! Sirius needs to push its station on ALL new vehicles packages, cd players, iphones an androids. Truck & delivery drivers UPS Pace and whatnot all have these in their vehicles. EFFF FM yo

Only game in town and good room for additional market share. Offered more and more in new automobiles and as that industry improves SIRI should benefit

As cell coverage, smart phones and wired cars expand, I don't see subscription satellite radio coming out on top. I think wireless competitors, many free, will constrain growth.

This stock has outperformed the s&p consistently over the last 3 yrs.Comparing P/E ratio / Return on equity (TTM) (%) to close peers and stock price and potential growth given Liberty Medias' money, guidance and stock buy back; which would you bet your money on. Don't forget for now, Sirius has only tapped the US and Canadian Markets.
P/E ratio / Return on equity (TTM) (%)
SIRI $50.79 /17.86
UA $58.89 /17.18
WFM $43.50 /14.62

Adding new subscribers daily and has monopolized the business even with pandora being added to new car radios. Sirius doesn't eat up data.

This 2 star stock on Motley Fool sure looks like a 10 Star Caps Pick if you look at the 5 year chart.

Today Sirius XM has exclusive new content. El Show De Piolin launches today in support of bringing content for the Hispanic community to enjoy.

The company will also put out a cheaper Basic Subscription built on Ad revenues next year to bring in listeners that can't afford the premium subscription fee. More Listeners means more Ad Revenues and right now the Advertisement market is growing fast.

Finally, Sirius XM launches "Fox Business" as an exclusive. Now you can listen to CODY Willard Bash your long stock portfolio on your way to Work and Back.
