NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- For some Wall Street analysts, it becomes personal and emotional. Or at least that's how they make it appear.
Somebody at Pandora must have made Greenfield incredibly angry.
Maybe Pandora co-founder Tim Westergren sucker-punched him in a bar or stole a kiss from his significant other. It could be something more benign that bothers Greenfield about Pandora. I feel for him. Pandora's Music Genome Project spits out way too many Dropkick Murphys songs for my liking, but I take it like an adult.In any event, guys like Greenfield are the reason why people on Main Street hate the stock market. Sadly, Greenfield has the power to move a stock such as Pandora. It's perfectly logical to think he might even do it for sport. The schizophrenic way Greenfield covers Pandora helps create volatility in the shares. On one hand, I thank him; these moves make covered call writing on my position easy to execute and more lucrative than it otherwise would be. On the other hand, there's no good reason for Pandora to move so erratically.
