Blog of the Week: The New Wall Street

XM Radio Company Profile

Strong Buy
12 Month Price Target $40.00
3-5 Year Price Target $150.00

First things first, lets get the bad news out of the way. Don't worry it wont take long.

XM Radio does not have Howard Stern.

Whether you like Stern or not, you cannot deny the impact he has had on Sirius Satellite Radio. His effect can on Sirius can be seen in both their stock price and their fundamentals. Before signing Stern, Sirius was a distant second to XM. In the latest quarter, they added more subscribers than XM for the first time in company history. Sirius currently has the greater momentum in this industry, with Howard Stern to thank.

So if Sirius grew faster last quarter, and has the momentum in the Satellite Radio industry, what is it that we find so attractive about XM? This wont take too long either...
