  • Sirius XM: $4 Per Share Will Depend On Q2 Report [View article]
    Case in point is TBrasc's comments in this article and around the time of this article. Long time SIRI holder who sold his shares at 3.36 to play around with metals, miners, commodities... all of those things have been absolutely destroyed by the stronger dollar yet he would be up 15% from that point with SIRI in 6 months. The poor guy even went into Oil...

    I have watched such commenters come... and go... over the years. They're in, they're out, they're flipping this and that and making a killing and haha you dummies holding SIRI everyone should do what I am doing and I bought this and this and this and everything is up over the past 3 days and ....

    Then one day they just vanish. And when do they vanish? When all this stuff they said they are buying starts to roll over or crash out. Do they hold those things on the way down like they held SIRI from $4.18 to $3.36 before they cut out of their quick flip on a loss, or significant loss?

    Remember you mentioned GPRO awhile back... people could have bought that and ridden it up... but now it's under the price it was just after it was opened for trading. Would people have known how to exit that? Would a long time SIRI holder have known to get into GPRO at $45 and exit at $90 or would they have looked for $135, and why? Technical? Fundamental? Future prospects? Current sales? Christmas season? Cool Youtube videos of people who make a living riding bikes down mountains?

    I honestly hope everyone makes a good deal of money in the market and that that provides a nice life for them and their families, but as far as my writing and ... um... advice, if you could call it that, I just focus on SIRI and long term view with short term estimations to assist in adding to shares. I've started trading shares / options as of this year on mid term month to month swings... we'll see how that goes... but my IRA stuff is still all as it was... 100% longer term. (If anyone wishes to see what I am doing I've been communicating intentions in advance on siriusbuzz forums... will mention my buy at least 1 day before and my sell target, and a stop if I enter it, so it's impossible for me to just come in days later and go "I bought here and sold here and made a killing..." )

    Price didn't agree with me. Sometimes it will, sometimes it won't. But I don't let short term price dictate my long term sentiment... if there's a disconnect it's a reason to buy / sell. SIRI provided a great point to add in October.

    If SIRI is $6 at some point next year or something(2016)... I'll be less concerned with "darn I shouldn't have held from June 2014 to Jan 2015, I could have flipped out and then back in later and made a killing on other quick trades in the meantime!" and more concerned with "darn, I didn't really add as much as I should have on that pullback in October 2014 when SIRI provided a great entry point way below my opinion of value."

  • Sirius XM: With $4 In Sight, Price Has Gone Parabolic [View article]
    Apple is not going to be able to get car makers to go exclusively with Apple in dash. Car makers are not going to cut out non-apple users from their customer base. Apple is not going to pay money to get exclusivity and force the auto maker not to install Sirius and not to install their own system and not to install Android capability. It's not going to happen.

    It's not.

    I can understand how one would THINK this MIGHT happen and be concerned about it but the reality here is that it won't happen and it's really not a concern at all.

    Again, Apple is not going to pay auto makers so that they stop installing SIRI.

    Yes but he says cash will always go to the executives. If you believe this why would you buy the stock? Buy another stock where you believe the cash will not go to the executives? I don't know how much 250k is to this individual but I would consider that to be a large amount to put into a company you believe will just pump cash to executives?

    I bought first right around the current price before 2009, but a relatively small amount. My honest answer is I bought initially because I had Satellite Radio and enjoyed it and decided to start investing by investing in what I knew and liked.

    The drop forced me to do research and I am happy it happened earlier in my investing career.

    If you believe that then why did you buy the stock in the first place? Why did you feel the stock was worth $6.65 per share in 2006? What did you expect it to be worth today?

    Anyone can do anything they want, including me :) And for me, what I am doing, is saying that all this speculation is a waste of time. :)

    (This is where it should be suggested that my commenting on the speculation being a waste of time, is a waste of time... at which point I would agree!)

    Well, there's a direct link. Took all of 15 seconds...

    "Our beautiful Sirius is not going anywhere until John Malone decides to take his boot off her neck."

    Referring to SIRI as "beautiful" and as "her" in the same sentence. Creepy.

    Is there anything else you need me to prove to you that you said / did?

    Again, pretending your stocks are "beautiful" and feminine and running a delusion that "she" is being held down in some dominant / abusive fashion from a masculine influence is a mistake...

    And again, it's super creepy.

    I'm my own analyst.

    I don't refer to stocks as "he".

    You said you never referred to SIRI as a beautiful girl, yet you referred to SIRI as "beautiful" and as "her." Then went on to say "she" was being "held down" by Malone so "he" could "have his way" with "her" with "his boot on her neck."

    If I point it out, you say you didn't say it. If I quote you, you ask what my problem is and attempt to deflect (because at that point there's nothing left for you to do).

    Creepy. Extremely creepy. It's not "clean" English, it's cringe-worthy and creepy innuendo. Ugh...

    They are not going to "get rid of that guy."

    It's not happening. Period. It's not even worth debating, considering doubling your stake or lowering your stake or whatever surrounding his staying or going or terms of any renegotiated contract.

    He'll stay. They'll continue to air his show(s). He may be on less than he is now or at a later time. They'll continue to fill with past shows, "best of" etc.

    Even if he were to stop doing the show (unlikely) it is reasonable to assume that Sirius would continue to pay for and air past content.

    Butttt... everyone can speculate (again) about if he will or won't leave or SIRI will or won't keep him (again) and guess and threaten / promise or whatever and blah blah blah blah blah...

    At least THIS topic has a bit more to it than the whole "I think Apple should buy SIRI" pipe dream.
