Time for Sirius to Get Serious About Earnings

Stocks in this article: SIRI

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- For some time now SiriusXM Radio (SIRI) has been making promises on a wing and a prayer. Although they have had pretty good revenue growth, the long years of losses are hard to forgive.

Those that have held on with hope have seen the stock go from a low of just 5 cents back in February of 2009 to around the $2.70 mark it's trading at recently. Just look at the graph provided by Barchart comparing the growth in SIRI's price with the growth in the market as measured by the Value Line Index over the past three and a half years:

The company will be reporting earnings later this month and expectations are high. Analyst consensus estimates are between 1 cent and 3 cents per share and anything outside that range will cause rapid price movement.

SiriusXM provides satellite radio services in the U.S. and Canada. The company broadcasts approximately 135 channels, including music, sports, entertainment, comedy, talk, news, traffic, and weather channels on subscription fee basis through two satellite radio systems.

In addition, the company sells satellite radios and supplies, handles logistics and production of satellite and Internet radio systems and licenses its technology to various electronics manufacturers. As of Dec. 31, 2011, it had 21,892,824 subscribers. The company was formerly known as Sirius Satellite Radio Inc. and changed its name to Sirius XM Radio Inc. in August 2008. The company was founded in 1990 and is headquartered in New York, N.Y.

Factors to Consider

Technical indicators provided by Barchart: The stock had recent upward momentum and has earned a 100% Barchart technical buy signal as well as a Trend Spotter buy signal. The stock is trading above its 20-, 50- and 100-day moving averages and hit 10 new highs with a 6.52% price increase in the last month and 85.86% in the past 12 months.

The Relative Strength Index is 67.44% and the stock traded recently around 2.71 with a 50-day moving average of 2.45.

Fundamental factors: For a stock that has been trading below $3, the stock has a surprising following on Wall Street where 13 brokerage firms have assigned 15 analysts to make recommendations to their clients. Analysts project revenue growth of 12.20% this year and another 11.50% next year.
