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 largely benifited from subscriber growth in second-quarter 2018. Regular addition of self-pay subscribers is proving worthy for the company. Solid new car as well as used car conversion rates significantly contributed to self-pay subscriber growth. Moreover, improving new car as well as used car penetration bodes well for the company. The company’s expanding product portfolio is a key catalyst. Sirius XM has outperformed the industry on a year-to-date basis. However, increasing royalty fee will keep margins under pressure. Moreover, stiff competition is a headwind." (7/30/2018)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We had maintained our top rating on SIRI for many years through the start of 2018. Since the collapse of its stock price in 2009 and its flirtation with bankruptcy following a financial crisis of its own as it attempted to refinance some debt following the merger of XM and Sirius that created the combined enterprise, the stock has traded relentlessly higher with only relatively brief periods of pause or decline. Increasing valuation metrics and a surprisingly burdensome royalty ruling around the turn of the current year caused us to feel a leveling in the stock price trend was likely. We moved our rating to MARKET PERFORM at that time, expecting more of a pause than an extended decline as management grappled with the surprising royalty issue." (6/29/2018)
