    If I buy stock in this company, am I privy to getting listener ratings?

    Spend the $3.35 and become a shareholder.

    No, but you will be entitled to the special dividend each SIRI shareholder receives, a 10% off coupon for a Squatty Potty

    A very risky investment, if Howard doesn't re-sign the company is history.

    56.33 P/E ratio. I bet they had to move some revenue forward just to get it that low.

    And no dividend. That's not even enough organic increase in value to cover inflation.

    To make any return, you'd be relying on some magic new invention they come out with, a massive trend change in subscribers, or what people are really counting on, bigger fools than they are and Fed money printing and zero interest rates forcing people to take a crappy 1.7% return. Then there's your capital gains taxes on that.

    This is what I've heard called "bending over in front of a steamroller to pick up nickles" investing. Tons of risk, minimal upside.

    I made some money off this stock when it was at 10 cents, sold at 3.20. I wanted to unload this piece of shit company asap. New subscribers are cars with siri installed. The executive management sounds terrible just listening to the show. The relationship soured between siri and wiggy when mel left.

    Just sounds like an unorganized company oytfitted with washed up radio and musoc execs probably to technology insiders. Listen to the 20 plus free music services sell sell sell

    Yeah, would suck for Sirius to lose the Squatty Potty and Ashley Madison accounts

    The company might be history either way.

    1. Ridiculous expenses for signing big names that they received little to no content from.
    2. Horrible customer service and management.
    3. Prices keep going up.
    4. Outdated technology and business model.
    5. Better and much deeper playlists can be found with Pandora/Slacker/Spotify.
    6. I've always thought Malone and Ergen just wanted the repeaters and not so much the company itself.

    Those ads they were doing for free Sirius XM until a certain date were as dumb as they could be. "Let me look both ways before flipping the switch, even though I'm already on camera."

    Check the Income Statement before investing. You can see how their spending their money vs what's actually coming in.

    Wiggy will re-sign because that's what he is. He would be a nobody without his radio show.
    As far as the stock goes I would prefer he not re-sign because that would free up a whole bunch of money that would otherwise go to him.
    I have sirius for Jay, not for Howard.

    If all of Jay's listeners got together they couldn't fill a bathroom stall, Howard has 12 million.

    I just wanted to know if there was a loophole so I could find out user ratings that way if I was a shareholder. I already have other shares in other things, i wouldn't delve into this one.
