The target price is set to $6.In a research note published on November 25, the analyst mentions that the company is witnessing worse-than-anticipated promotional trends, which is likely to adversely affect its ARPU.

Sirius store reports brisk sales due to stern

Hey guys--Hope your busy! Any comments regarding the volume of Sirius sales? Guessing the year end projections?(are what expected or you think numbers of "over 3 million subs" going to be blown out?) Are the sales general normal gift holiday or more Howard effect involved?Any shortages out there you see?
Posted by: Gary November 26, 2005 at 06:22 AM
The sales seem to be much higher than expected. Also about 80% of the people buying are Howard Stern fans or are buying for Stern fans. And those fans are going to great lengths to listen. I think in my personal sense the 3 million mark has been past at least a week ago. Maybe we're looking at 3.5-5 million subscriber by the end of January, this purely my estimate.
Posted by: Taylor November 26, 2005 at 01:28 PM
Taylor, thanks for the info on sales and thanks for your cool store! Could you give us a sense of what radios are selling the most? Without prying could you tell us what % this year sale are different then last years? I am an investor and your input is very helpful. Thanks again
Posted by: John November 26, 2005 at 02:02 PM

Can Stern Stop XM's Leadership?
November 25 , 2005

Standard & Poor's Equity Research analyst Tuna Amobi reiterated a "buy" rating on XM Satellite Radio Holdings today (nasdaq: XMSR - news - people ) and raised the price target to $36 from $33.

In a research report, Amobi attributed the action to "robust holiday sales of retail subscriptions to XM's portables, led by Roady2 and SKYFi2." Problems at General Motors (nyse: GM - news - people ), a "key partner," won't derail XM's momentum at the automotive OEM channel, where GM and Honda Motor (nyse: HMC - news - people ) combined plan more than 2 million XM-factory installed vehicles in 2006. Amobi said a likely attainable 2005 target is 1.8 million..

"We assume the 2006 debut of jock Howard Stern on rival Sirius Satellite Radio (nasdaq: SIRI - news - people ) will boost overall awareness for satellite radio, without tilting XM's long-term leadership of the category," Amobi said. The analyst rates Sirius at "hold."

California-based research firm Bridge Ratings & Research has been trending Stern subscriptions all year. In their just-released trend update, Bridge Ratings President Dave Van Dyke shared this insight:

"By the end of January 2006, Bridge Ratings projects 1.4 million additional new subscribers to Sirius due to Stern's new channels. Sirius' 750,000 sign-up rate for Q4 2005 will surpass XM's quarterly number and for the first time will give Sirius the majority of the subscription activity for the quarter."

Bridge Ratings projects XM will add 695,000 new subscribers in the 4th Quarter

Sirius store S-50 Units due tuesday

Happy Thanksgiving.

The Sirius store has reported via it's blog More good new's

Unfortunately I opted not to do anything but work on things here at the business. I generally go up to some family I have in San Francisco. It is a tradition that I had to break this year since business has been so busy as of late.

A few things of note. Our Second and Third Batches of S50s come in on Tuesday for sure. Those will ship out on tuesday as well. We appreciate your patience. SIRIUS is growing by leaps and bounds. Believe it or not I am not a stockholder but would recommend it to everyone. I can personally feel their growth and it is astonishing.

We added a few things tonight, Thanksgiving night. One is prepaid SIRIUS Cards. There are two kinds. One in which you buy to refuel your existing service and the other in which includes the activation fee as well. You can get those in 3, 6, and 12 month demoninations. They serve a purpose as gifts, for the most part or perhaps you are not a fan a being automatically billed.

Sirius, CBC States over three million sub's

CBC Radio 3
Satellite Station Will Beam Canadian Indie Music and Culture to Millions, 24 Hours a Day 85 percent will be Canadian content - from the newest emerging artists to favourites such as the Arcade Fire, the New Pornographers, K'naan and Broken Social Scene In early December, CBC Radio 3 is launching a daring new 24-hour satellite radio station that will give an enormous boost to Canadian independent music and culture. Beamed across North America through the Sirius Satellite network (, the station will feature artists from across the country and from across many genres - including rock, pop, hip-hop, electronica, and alt-country - before they hit the mainstream. For those artists, it means reaching millions of music fans they never would have before.

"This is an unprecedented opportunity to get a lot of Canadian artists on the radio, not just in Canada, but also in the United States," says CBC Radio 3 director Steve Pratt. "And right now, with so much buzz around the Canadian indie music scene, it's a great time for us to launch."

With over 3 million existing subscribers, satellite radio is one of the fastest growing technologies in the United States; and the commercial-free, 24-hour format promises to be equally popular in Canada, where Sirius will launch its full service in time for the 2005 holiday season.

Based in Vancouver, CBC Radio 3's satellite station will also feature music, arts, and pop culture stories from CBC reporters in Toronto, Montreal, and Halifax and from a host of freelance contributors everywhere in between. The exceptional host lineup will include CBC favourites Grant Lawrence and Lisa Christiansen, as well as indie rock icons Chris Murphy and Jay Ferguson of Sloan.

Early next year, the line-up will also include concerts and sessions recorded in CBC studios. A comprehensive new website ( will bring together Radio 3's existing web properties and will feature a CBC Radio 3 blog, as well as an interactive music player that will offer pre-arranged playlists and will allow listeners to customize their own. Radio 3's weekly, all-Canadian music podcast - the most popular in the country with more than 650,000 downloads to date - will also continue.

"This is an amazing success story for Canadian music," says Pratt. "And it's only just begun."

Sirus Canada CBC Pratt confirm's launch

CBC satellite set to soar
By adrian mack
Publish Date: 24-Nov-2005

Preparations for the launch of CBC Radio 3’s satellite radio station continue, with director Steve Pratt confirming that broadcasting will begin “within two weeks”. The 24-hour service—one out of a hundred that will be available through the SIRIUS network—will focus almost exclusively on independent Canadian music, and should give further momentum to a community already ignited by the international triumphs of acts like the Arcade Fire and Broken Social Scene. “I don’t think it’s the case that all of a sudden, there’s magically a ton of amazing music being made in Canada,” Pratt told the Straight. “I think it’s the case that technology has allowed more people to discover it easily and share it.” To that end, the innovative group behind CBC Radio 3—which previously piggybacked on CBC Radio Two for 30 hours a week, as well as maintaining a cutting-edge web presence—has already extended into other forms of new media. “For us, it’s been the podcasts,” Pratt said. “It’s unbelievable. I think there’s been something like three-quarters of a million downloads since June. And almost 50 percent of them are from outside of Canada.” The move into the subscriber-based satellite radio market brings Pratt and company one step closer to their original ambitions. “We’ve been hoping to have a 24-hour radio station at Radio 3 since 1999,” he noted. The commercial-free format also allows for some nifty and attractive programming. “Chris Murphy and Jay Ferguson from Sloan—they’re doing a weekend show for us, from Toronto,” Pratt revealed, almost giddily. “They were out here last week taping their first show. We’re not really going for the guys named Buzz or Catfish or whatever, with the big, deep voices—we want people who really know their music and are passionate about it.” For updates, including a firm kickoff date, visit

Waiting for Santa

What a great invention satellite radio was. I was apprehensive when the dealer first mentioned it to me when ordering a new car. I declined the service simply because I had never heard of it. That was in the fall of 2003. In the fall of 2004, I ordered a new car again, and boy, did I change my mind that time. During the span of a year, I must have heard Sirius and XM Satellite Radio mentioned a dozen times. I began to notice it piped into my local grocery store when I was shopping. All my friends had it in their cars. So, I was a buyer the second go around. Not only did I subscribe to the service and have the radio installed in my car, but I bought shares of the stock. I am waiting for Santa to arrive this Christmas so that I can reap the benefits when the share price accelerates. I strongly believe that satellite radio is the future. I will always have it now and hope to make some money off it as well.
