How Sirius is Paying Back Shareholders

Sirius XM Radio (NASDAQ: SIRI  ) has had a particularly good year, and now, like so many companies this month, it is finding ways to give back to shareholders ahead of any potential tax increases at the end of the year, as Congress attempts to solve the fiscal cliff dilemma. The company has taken out a $1.5B credit facility and initiated a $2B share buyback program, as well as a $0.05 special dividend. In this video, Motley Fool analyst Blake Bos discusses why Sirius chose this route rather than one large special dividend, like so many other companies chose this month, and what it means for investors.

Despite Sirius XM being one of the market's biggest winners since bottoming out three years ago, there is still some healthy upside to be had if things go right for it -- and plenty of room to fall if things go wrong.
