  • Sirius XM Short Interest Continues To Decline [View article]
    We have a disconnect.

    I am talking about the shorted shares that are held... not the shorted shares that are in debt.

    If an institution shorts it's a debt.

    The "held" end reports it as a long.

    Thus any shorted shares (the extra) held are reported as long.

    That means if an institution holds these, they report them and it goes into % ownership.

    Since institutions and LMCA must report, all other shares are retail.

    That means retail owns all shares above the combined LMCA and Institution % including all shares shorted. The retail % is understated due to existence of shorts.

    It's not a huge deal... regretting mentioning it lol

    It's a nostalgia thing, I think. If the tech were "better" then it would not have been replaced.

    Whole generation coming along that never owned a CD.

    Heck, I'm 37 and a barely grazed tapes...

    I don't think institutions that are net short are counted against institutional ownership.

    SIRI is approaching a point where it's not so much about growing the sub base (to the extents it has in the past). If they add a million self pay a year they are doing well. More is better.

    Would take too long to explain why but I have articles that explain it from years past.

    Yeah I know some people still have CDs and listen to them. My point is the tech is on the way out for in car listening. People still have records they listen to, and tapes... but people don't tend to add to those collections (ok ok some nutbags get all into the record player thing like Bababooey and his "vinyl" but it's an exception not the norm.)

    So if one picked up SIRI this year at $3 is it currently a laggard? Is it a laggard if it goes from $3.50 here to $4.75 at this time next year?

    Laggard = "anything under $5?"

    Not following.

    "Being a little older than you men------I have seen many shenanigans pulled by CEO's and Boards of Directors at the last minute to eliminate the common shareholders-------with NO MONETARY CONSIDERATION TO THE COMMON SHARE holders."

    Yet you own stock and thus place yourself in the position of a common share holder?

    I guess that goes along the lines of Robert Fulghum's little short story "It was on fire when I lady down in it." What in the world would make a man (or woman) lay down in a burning bed?

    "I also wasn't that impressed with the quality of the sound."

    There is no vehicle on the road today that could be considered even a "good" music listening environment.

    The quality of sound? In a car? Even if you're running around in a $150K+ luxury car the background noise while driving (and yep, even in a Tesla without the engine ) is far too high to worry about, say, the drop in quality from a CD to a SIRI music channel.

    Home listeners yes, I could understand this. But the home listener is not the target and you are referencing in vehicle listening.

    I am surprised you are satisfied with iPod sound and not SIRI music. The compression is similar. (Some SIRI talk is compressed more). Or are you not impressed with MP3 quality either but willing to use it because it ... well it's not free so I dunno... because it isn't SIRI? =/

    I think we agree here... more shorts - more retail ownership... that's what I am saying.

    less shorts - less retail ownership.

    Better sell before 15% a year depresses you too much!

    Aren't you close ? You were offered $3.64 and didn't take it then $3.60 and didn't take it. Now, what exactly are you waiting for from $3.54?

    If it dips again will you be talking about the next pitch? :) Just waiting to get out... hate the stock... tired, done, etc... for another 3 or 6 months? because you chased less than 2%?

    Sell. Run. Save yourself from such madness.
