Liberty Media (LMCA +0.5%), so tantalizing close to controlling Sirius XM Radio (SIRI +1.4%) that it can smell it, has analysts buzzing over the potential of mixing in Sirius to its existing stable of businesses. Though the company has stakes in Barnes & Noble, concert player Live Nation, and cable TV company Discover Communications - it's best known for structuring complicated tax-advantaged deals. What does LMCA have up its sleeve?

    "...USA.!!!"

     

    It's all about the details. Your comment could be easily brushed aside as over-the-top, if one read it as "...USA!!!" But to the careful reader, no, that period has power. It's an implying period. Bravo!

     

    So, how do you think the satellites will reach the Cape of South Africa?

    Liberty Media (LMCA +0.5% Sirius is nothing more than a cash cow for this seriously failing Company. If they get control of Sirius, Sirius will be paying their Bills for years to come. Everty time they need money they will give themselves millions of stocks in Sirius to pay their Bills. Look on Morningstar to see how how badly their stock is doing. They shouldn't even be listed on the stock exchange. That's how badly they are doing. But a gletch in the rules allows them to manipulate themselves into Sirius ownership after years of suffering by the stock holders of Sirius. Now we got to be captured again by greedy losers. I wish I never got involved with Sirius. I am 70 years old and I don't think I ever saw a stock that was played with by losers as much as I witnessed Sirius stock. Just when I think that Sirius was finally going to blossom, Liberty Media steps in and sends the stock into the gutter.

    I believe you have a point. (poe1raven) Always thought Siri would do well for investors. I'm a little nervous with my investment right now. Liberty's intentions is not for Sirrius investors. Don't think it will go much higher. I will exit and sit on the sidelines for awhile. Best of luck to all. Edger Allen Poe would do the same I'm afraid.

    The original comment said nothing new. I would like to hear 1 or 2 good reasons that Malone would be good for the company Sirius/XM and also the shareholders represented by Karmazan

     

    No I don't want to hear about -----buy backs and rmt's and nols.
    Those are side issues in a stock that is doing fantastically well.
    Malone needs to sell and get out of the way of Sirius/XM.---the stock would explode imo if he did.
