Pandora Could Become a $100 Stock

Video rant on Page Two.

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- If you haven't been following my article history at TheStreet, littered with predictive Pandora (P) articles, don't fret, you still have time to get with the program.

Together we can not only understand, but vision the composition and trajectory of the Internet radio space as it pertains to the world of tech and the music industrial complex's future.

Several factors, IMNSHO (in-my-not-so-humble-opinion), will coalesce to take Pandora close to and, quite possibly, beyond the $100 level over the next one-to-three years.

Even though $30 came and went much more quickly than even I expected, do not mistake -- I repeat -- do not mistake this article as an endorsement to buy Pandora stock ahead of earnings.

I don't care if it shoots to the moon Friday morning. It's an awful strategy to greedily hold out for a larger share of P's 300% upside over the last year than you have already captured. You're asking to have your head handed to you if you make that a strategy, headed into earnings, on stocks that are priced to perfection.

Manage your position by selling enough of it to ensure a dip or outright collapse doesn't hurt you badly.

With that out of the way, here's what investors -- and astute consumers of information I like to call "smart generalists" -- should be thinking about as they sit back, watch the dust settle and consider Pandora's future as an investment, Internet radio pioneer and music industry savior.
