    Yes I am a loyal Sirius listener and yes you deserve some heat for your misguiding opinion. Sirius is the leader in premium no commercial excellent content radio all for a low cost. You have it in your car at $150 year. I have it in my cars, boat, house and yard. Everyone loves the product. You are not comparing apples to apples. FOOLish article overall. Just out of you own Pandora stock? Or just a Sirius short. C'mon man!

    TSLA - Strong Buy. Wall Street didn't see Amazon coming for a decade or more ......

    The characteristics of most disruptive companies in this World are usually met with extreme disbelief by companies that have already existed for along time. Even Walmart did not see the competition from Amazon coming until 2006. By then, it was too late to fight Amazon. I owned Amazon stocks at $7 per share in 2001.

    SIRI - Sell. It is not a disruptive company. It is a service good for those who can afford it. For those who say, many cannot afford a $80,000 Model S, the same goes for many people who cannot afford $150 per year for music which are otherwise FREE on FM radios. Many local radios rock!!!!! They have wonderful DJs.

    Navia - Hold. It could continue its great relationship with Tesla Motors and thrift this way.

    Odd. I thought Motley Fool made all columnists disclose their status with any stock on which they made a recommendation.

    He has it in his own car and loves it, so presumably he knows of all the content. He doesn't mention content when he gives his recommendation.

    He does make a good point about price. Young potential Sirius subscribers that are mainly interested in the music will look at the annual price of over $175 and will go for free instead. And adding Sirius Internet radio to the package, so you can listen in places other than your auto, adds around another $40. Sirius will lose some of these.

    Basically this is just some guy with no special expertise in the segment, so his opinion really doesn't matter much.

    Ownership stakes are disclosed, that section was added because we distribute videos on different sites where the disclosure may not be visible.

    From this article.... "Neither Fool contributor John Rosevear nor Rex Moore has a position in any stocks mentioned. The Motley Fool recommends NVIDIA and Tesla Motors and owns shares of Tesla Motors. "
