Barrington Research analysts commented, "We have ticked lower our EBITDA estimate, which is now $(93) million, down from $(91) million. Full‐year cash flow generation should improve relative to 2017 as sub levels increase and ad revenue trends improve." (3/8/2018) 3. Macquarie analysts commented, "We model 1Q revenue/adj. EBITDA of US$301m/- US$91m, reflecting a trough 1Q while our cumulative 2Q-4Q ’18 adj. EBITDA improves meaningfully vs ‘17 in line with guidance. Our target remains US$5. Impact We model ’18/’19 adj. EBITDA of -US$120m/US$26m; we expect P will return to profitability in 4Q18 and achieve positive annual EBITDA in ’19. This is reflected by ongoing cost initiatives: 1) normalizing content costs, though ad LPMs will fluctuate in the short term due to minimum guarantees; 2) increasing direct sales, which have a better margin profile than app store sales; 3) better balancing the mix of ad- supported/subscription; and 4) expanding into non-music content starting with Podcasts. Overall, we model opex as a % of revenue lower in ’18 vs ’17; our G&A expense is lower YoY however our S&M/product development costs are slightly elevated in ’18 driven by new products/investments in ad tech." (2/25/2018) 4. Wells Fargo & Co analysts commented, "SCI delivered strong 2017 adjusted EPS of $1.55 (+20% y/y), which exceeded its original guidance of $1.29-1.43. 2018 adjusted EPS guidance of $1.72-1.90 (+11% to +23% y/y) implies 8% core growth with incremental contribution from tax reform/ an accounting change. A tough y/y comp following a strong 2017/allocation of a portion of (US tax reform) cash tax savings to increase employee compensation establish the 2018 core guidance slightly below the midpoint of SCI’s long-term 8-12% EPS range, which it reiterated at its recent Investor Day. Via multiple progressive innovations/initiatives supporting SCI’s sales force/strong anticipated cash flow, we’re confident the company can deliver upon its multi-year target of 4-6% base business growth/2-3% tuck-in/new build contribution/2-3% share repurchases. Increasing our 2018E-2019E adjusted EPS, we reiterate Outperform." (2/22/2018) 5. Aegis analysts commented, "We see a call option levered to continued improvement in ad monetization and continued growth of the subscription business, which we believe added north of 400K subscribers for the Pandora Premium product with partial offsets by the Plus product. Our new price target on the shares is $7." (2/22/2018) Are investors shorting Pandora Media? Pandora Media saw a drop in short interest in the month of September.
