Sirius Kicking Butt in 2010

Hard to believe: A year ago, Sirius XM Radio shares were trading at around 35 cents and the company was on its way to being slapped with a Nasdaq minimum-bid notice. Today, Sirius shares are trading at $1.15, up nearly 7.5 percent on news of an improved full-year outlook.

The recovery in consumer spending and auto sales is evidently giving Sirius (SIRI) quite a lift, enough for it to boost projected new subscriptions to approximately 750,000 from about 500,000, its revenue to $2.75 billion and its profit to $575 million.

Quite a change from last year, when the company seemed headed toward almost certain bankruptcy. Its shares are up some 75 percent this year.

I think the NSA has a job to do and we need the NSA. But as (physicist) Robert Oppenheimer said, “When you see something that is technically sweet, you go ahead and do it and argue about what to do about it only after you’ve had your technical success. That is the way it was with the atomic bomb.”
