Is Sirius XM a Classic Value Trap?

While the P/E ratio is Wall Street's most common measurement for knowing whether a stock is cheap or expensive at the moment, it isn't always the best one. In this video, Motley Fool consumer-goods analyst Blake Bos looks at Sirius XM (NASDAQ: SIRI  ) and tells investors why its normalized P/E ratio is much higher than it looks. And at that high multiple, Sirius is priced as a growth company, but with its moat eroding as Internet radio becomes more competitive in automobile ecosystems, it may not be the growth story it once was.

Even though Sirius XM is 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 for it to fall if things don't.

    Don't over analyze a stock like counting calories for a health conscious people.

    If the food tastes good at a restaurant, it will sell.

    If it is the only restaurant that sells burgers and fries, it will sell even more.

    It is not all about numbers. When it comes to premium, numbers defy logic. Premium. That is the key operating factor for Sirius/XM.
