What are analysts saying about Sirius XM Holdings stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Sirius XM Holdings stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Even though shares of Sirius XM have outperformed its industry so far this year, we remain concerned about the company's high operating expenses. Escalated costs are likely to hurt its bottom line in the third quarter. Detailed results should be out on Oct 25. Slowdown in subscription growth is another concern. The company added 1.052 million subscribers in the first half of 2016. The number fell to 0.702 million in the first half of 2017. The company's high debt levels also raise concerns. Excessive competition may also hinder growth. We are, however, impressed by the company's recent decision to hike its quarterly dividend payout." (10/13/2017)
  • 2. Macquarie analysts commented, "We remain firm that Sirius XM can navigate declining auto sales and higher capex/cash taxes in the future. Importantly, it’s embracing the connected car with 360L/Automatic Labs and now with a stake in Pandora has an ‘in’ with digital/mobile platforms. We inch our numbers up including sub metrics and buyback assumptions, which drives our target higher to US$6 from US$5.65 based on 14.5x our ’19E FCF/sh, discounted. Impact Net adds, churn, and ARPU impressed: 1) We raise our already-above-guidance self-pay net adds in ‘17 to ~1.5m from ~1.4m, which reflects an improved outlook for 1.4m from 1.3m. This assumes ’17/’18 SAAR of 17.2m/16.9m per our Auto Analyst T. Katayama relative to management’s view of sales landing in the 16.5m-17m range; 2) 1.7% churn was impressive as customer satisfaction offset vehicle-related churn. We model conservative churn of ~2% for ’17/’18 in line with commentary but expect upside to this metric; and 3) ARPU rose ~3%, beating our expectations; we model 3Q/’17 ARPU of US$13.28/US$13.21, which is up 1.8%/2.3% YoY. 38.7% margin was healthy, in spite of the below investments. We are modeling EBITDA margins of 38.3%/38.7% for ‘17/’18 and EBITDA of US$2.06bn vs guidance of US$2.05bn in ‘17. We model slightly elevated R&D/marketing investments for 360L, but expect this to be offset by the remaining cost buckets and a levelling off of programming. We also remain optimistic on the CRB decision that will come mid- Dec; we model a 100bps bump in the ’18 royalty rate." (7/27/2017)
