    Sirius XM Radio (SIRI +0.2%) might look just a bit more interesting to investors with General Motors, Ford, and Chrysler all posting solid sales numbers in December. Don't look now, but the stock that some bears swore last summer would never clear $2 again now trades for over $3 a share.

    Sirius XM Radio (SIRI +0.2%) trades higher with word out that it found someone to call the shots for Mel Karmazin on an interim basis. An important backdrop for the company is where auto sales will come in at for December. Typically, the last week of the year is a big selling period, but the fiscal cliff paranoia adds a wildcard to the mix this year.

    Sirius XM Radio (SIRI +0.2%) extends an agreement with Hyundai for another three years. Hyundai customers will receive a 3-month SiriusXM subscription with the purchase of a new vehicle. The bigger issue: While the company finds its easy to find fresh customers through its association with manufacturers, watch the churn rate for the true story if profits will follow.

    Six of one, a half dozen of the other: Maxim says investors can buy either Sirius Radio XM (SIRI -0.2%) or Liberty Media (LMCA +0.2%) to benefit from the juiced-up returns SIRI will soon be churning out. While a Sirius buy is a pure-play approach, nibbling on Liberty shares is a way to diversify the investment across other media assets.

    Sirius XM Radio (SIRI) moves up 1.5% premarket as traders keep evaluating the impact the Disney-Netflix deal will have on the company. SA author Stephen Faulkner predicted the reaction, calling the downward spike in SIRI yesterday off the Netflix news as overdone. His take on the complicated entanglement of Liberty Media, Starz, and Netfliz: "Both Sirius XM's and Starz's performance will impact Liberty Media's valuation, but Sirius XM and Starz do not affect each other."

    The period of time during which a protest against Liberty Media's (LMCA -3.2%) planned acquisition of Sirius XM Radio (SIRI -3.7%) could be filed with regulators passes with only one objection actually recorded. Barring any problems with the FCC, the long-awaited takeover could be official in a matter of weeks. With that hurdle cleared, next on tap will be finding a CEO ready to take on the next chapter of Sirius.
