Sirius XM may see increased volume after Barrington Research analyst James Goss reiterated his outperform rating on the stock and raised his price target to $1.50 from $1.25. Goss says the increased price target is due to the migration to a 2011-based target value, and is based on additional subscriber growth optimism.
"Sirius XM is on track to generate increasing subscriber counts, higher revenues and improving profitability," Goss writes. "We feel an increasing number of investors are willing to give this story more serious consideration as management demonstrates success in dealing with the speculative elements and creates a clearer path to meaningful positive results."
