10:16 EDTP, SIRIPandora rises after optimistic notes from analysts
Shares of Internet radio provider Pandora Media (P) are advancing after one research firm upgraded the stock and another remained upbeat on the shares. WHAT'S NEW: In a note to investors earlier today, research firm Maxim Group upgraded Pandora to Buy from Hold. After Pandora's stock tumbled nearly 40%, the shares have reached an attractive entry point, Maxim Group analyst John Tinker wrote. Noting that the Media Ratings Council accredited Triton's webcast measurement service, Tinker thinks this development will increase advertisers' confidence in Pandora's audience data. Pandora provides Triton's audience data to its advertisers. The Media Ratings Council was founded by the broadcast industry in the 1960s to review and accredit audience rating services, according to its website. Organizations that provide ratings for traditional radio also receive their accreditation from the council, Tinker wrote. Meanwhile, Pandora has received some favorable news regarding royalties in recent weeks, suggesting that its royalty rate will remain "manageable," the analyst added. He set a $55 price target on the shares. Separately, Pacific Crest analyst Corey Barrett wrote that Pandora would eventually become a "quintessential" part of high tech cars. Pandora's penetration of automobiles could match that of Sirius XM (SIRI) by 2017, the analyst predicted. Pandora's opportunity in cars should more than offset the increasing competition it is facing, and a slowdown in the growth of its mobile user growth in the near-term, Barrett believes. He kept a $45 price target and Outperform rating on the shares. PRICE ACTION: In early trading, Pandora climbed 72c, or 3%, to $26.

08:43 EDTPBullish Pandora argument 'not compelling,' says FBR Capital
FBR Capital believes the bullish argument that Pandora's earnings could support the stock under a SoundExchange Copyright Royalty Board victory scenario is "not compelling." FBR sees a "high probability" that rates are set well above current levels, which it views as a potential "meaningful headwind" for Pandora shares. It keeps an Underperform rating on the name with an $11 price target. It believes SoundExchange has the "inside track" in the CRB proceeding.
