Auto Sales Increase Bodes Well for Sirius

Looks like Sirius XM’s run of good luck will continue well into the new year. New-vehicle retail sales data from J.D. Power and Associates suggests an increase in consumer demand for new cars. And for Sirius that means continued subsciber growth–perhaps even significant subscriber growth.
