    If your opinion aligns with Spencer's then perhaps you should post agreement on his article?

    Like you said you don't know why you posted the same stuff again, here, again... but, well, you did it...

    And then you get the same type of response from me and have to limit yourself in your reply? lol... You've come and posted the SAME DAMN THING on an article written by ME and you can't figure out why I say the SAME DAMN THING back to you on the article written by ME...

    See you in a week, when you post the same thing again!

    Not at the moment. Figure it will be kinda quiet until the Q1 report.

    And yeah repeating the Apple stuff doesn't make it true. I cannot fathom why you remain in SIRI with your opinion that Apple can do anything it wants. Just buy Apple?

    You're sitting at a counter, two things on the menu, and you buy one and salivate over the other.

    Then again maybe you already own Apple stock or something.

    SIRI is not going to grow "faster" (not with any sustainability) so you should sell and be done.

    And you are right, there is nothing to talk about at the moment so... better to just relax and not start musing about this and that. Spring is almost here. Enjoy.

    Are you still shorting it at $3.75? Averaging up? How exactly are you playing this?

    For what it is worth, the price was $3.83 when I wrote this, and the price went to a bid of $4.03. This is the first year I have decided to "trade" SIRI and of the recent rise have hit three effective trades so far, buy $3.50 "area", sell $3.91, buy $3.82, sell $4.03, buy $3.92 with a target sell of $4.12 although given enough time that could go a little higher.

    These are not day trades but rather a bit longer term (call them short term) trades and can easily be found in my comment history with targets posted a week or more in advance. I still maintain that it's not the best thing for someone to just go from a long holder to trying to flip shares, but for those interested in making a little extra as SIRI "moves" it certainly is possible with a bit of research.

    Just holding my IRA shares which are all in options, but trading non-ira stuff to build a bit of cash.

    Worst case you get caught long (would have been long anyways, right?) and miss being in cash on a pull back, or you're out (which should be briefly) and some sort of news or offer comes through the pushes the stock up.

    It would not be a bad idea to write March 20th $4's on any bounce here on short term holdings and pocket the cash. Same for April. Stay away from May / June and beyond on writes unless they are used to make a spread and the cash received goes towards the long side. June $3.50 / $4 looks attractive but runs risk on the Q1 call (you'd want it flat). Highly speculative.

    Whining that the stock is manipulated or that people are paid to bash the stock every single time it does exactly what stocks do (which is go up, down, and sideways) is getting really old.

    Time to add was two months ago.

    That said if you have money to add, wait for price near / below the 50 day moving average. That might mean you buy in a month at this price here... that might mean you buy for less... it might mean you buy for a bit more in a few months. Better to have a disciplined strategy for adding, though, rather than simply grabbing any quick pullback.

    Android / Carplay is simply software, not hardware. Each receiver supports both.

    Aftermarket radios have always been "Sirius XM ready" in that they need the tuner. It's not something new. If you buy the non Android Auto head unit you have to buy the tuner... (and that's no more a plot by the head unit maker or traditional radio broadcasters than the NEX receivers needing it.) Be careful with confirmation bias. I know you are looking for support of your theory but continue to dig once you find it in case further research invalidates.

    Again Apple is not going to pay money to an auto maker or force them or "persuade" them to not install SIRI. Not happening. The two competitors (at the moment) in this are Apple and GOOGLE and it is not some war between Apple and SIRI like you seem to be so hooked on.

    You need to research this ... or in my opinion you should... if it is going to continue to be a talking point of yours.

    "Anyone ordering the Carplay option will, 99% of the time, go to iTunes Radio and the other streamers."

    99%? You sure? ONE in ONE HUNDRED who choose a NEX (let's just call it that for now) capable receiver will sub to SIRI and 99% will choose not to? Conversion in 5 years WILL drop to 1% on anything that has a software stack available? because the center stack in a car is going to go to software in that time frame on new vehicles (by majority). You didn't say most of the time, you said, clearly, 99% of the time.

    You are so hooked on this idea... Take a step back and LOOK, and UNDERSTAND what the environment in a vehicle is, what these options provide, etc. Watch the videos on Carplay and Android Auto. Understand what these systems provide. Consider how these systems do not provide much beyond what can already be done with a bluetooth sync up or aux cable.

    Also for what it is worth I have gone with Pioneer head units since my first car in 1993. Still remember the model number... DEX-P990DSP I think... =/ Been very happy with all their products.

    You would also notice that the NEX receivers load Android Auto as well. Has Pioneer already turned the Google/Sirius relationship upside down?

    Again you would do well to educate yourself on this if it is going to be a continuing concern of yours.

    (Also for what it's worth it has been my experience that those who purchase an aftermarket radio can call SIRI and buy a year sub and get the tuner sent to them free... though I am not sure if they are still doing this... the tuner costs them very little so I would think they would... similarly if you buy the tuner you get equivalent service for free, 3 months)

    Has always been this way. How long have you followed the aftermarket receivers?

    As someone who typically does a full tear-out of all his vehicles and a complete overhaul of the factory stereo (with the exception of work vehicles) I can tell you, clearly, that aftermarket head units have always required that separate portion.

    So, nothing has been turned upside down. But that won't stop people from saying that it has.
