What are Wall Street analysts saying about Sirius XM stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sirius XM stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Sirius XM's self-pay subscriber base and new subscriber base are witnessing growth due to strong content portfolio. Additionally, Sirius XM’s partnership with Amazon to provide free access to a few of its subscription packages for existing Echo holders is expected to further boost its subscriber base and their engagement levels. Post Pandora’s acquisition, Sirius XM’s 36 million subscribers across North America and Pandora’s 71.4 million monthly active users (MAUs) together will lead to the creation of the world’s largest audio entertainment company. Moreover, the raised full-year guidance for self-pay subscriber additions, revenues and adjusted EBITDA bodes well. Notably, shares have outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, increasing royalty related expense is expected to keep margins under pressure. Slowdown in auto sales is also a concern." (12/6/2018)
  • 2. Pivotal Research analysts commented, "We remind investors that our relatively cautious stance on SIRI is driven by the Pandora equity deal which changed investor focus on SIRI from a dramatic equity shrink in a relatively short period of time to deals and buybacks over a more extended period, which in our view, brings into play the still arguably rich (at 14X ’19 EBITDA and 18X ’19 FCF after tax) valuation. The reduction in our YE’19 target price $7.25 to $7.00 was driven by 2 factors: we raised our discount rate used in our DCF from 8 to 9% to better reflect the higher interest rate environment and pushed back our assumption for a price increase from ’19 to ’20." (10/24/2018)
  • 3. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We had moved to OUTPERFORM on 1 due to the significant potential we expected in the blend of subscription products combined with monetization of the ad-based service. The all-stock acquisition price terms initially indicated a $10.14 per share value for P based on the trailing 30-day average for SIRI, close to our price target of $11 and 50% above our upgrade price. However, the announced price was also only 13.8% above the 30-day VWAP, indicating a belief that a significant share of the price arbitrage between the equities had occurred in recent trading. We are maintaining our top investment rating on SIRI, though news of the deal has pressured its shares lower. Since P should trade in relationship with SIRI, we maintain our investment rating on P as well." (9/24/2018)
