In the following video, Motley Fool consumer goods analyst Blake Bos discusses Pandora (NYSE:P), and its big beat on earnings. But, while its always nice to see a stock spike up after beating analysts' expectations, what you want to look at as an investor is how the company will perform in the long run. Blake stresses in the video that, with a high-growth company like Pandora, it's going to be the macro trends that are much more important than earnings per share on a quarterly basis. He takes a look at Pandora's market share growth, its explosion on mobile platforms, and other big drivers that have him bullish on the company.
