10:16 EDTSIRI, PPandora 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.

06:28 EDTPBillboard 200 chart to include on-demand streaming in rankings
The Billboard 200 albums chart will premiere its biggest upgrade in more than 23 years, transforming from a pure sales-based ranking to one measuring multi-metric consumption. Beginning with the top 10 revealed on Wednesday, Dec. 3, on Billboard.com, the chart, which currently tracks the top 200 albums of the week by sales alone, will be the first to include on-demand streaming and digital track sales -- as measured by Nielsen Entertainment (NLSN) -- by way of a new algorithm. It is the most substantial methodology update since May 1991, when Billboard first used Nielsen's point-of-sale data -- SoundScan -- to measure album sales. The updated Billboard 200 will utilize accepted industry benchmarks for digital and streaming data, equating 10 digital track sales from an album to one equivalent album sale, and 1,500 song streams from an album to one equivalent album sale. All of the major on-demand audio subscription services are considered, including Spotify, Beats Music (AAPL), Google Play (GOOG) and Xbox Music (MSFT). Reference Link

11:22 EDTPPandora rallies after CEO share purchase
The stock is being pushed higher by word that the CEO of the company made a purchase of 25,000 shares following the recent lows at $17.55. At the current price of $20.97 resistance is at the bottom of the bearish gap down in price from October 24th at $21.17. A move higher puts the shares back into the gap for a bullish gap fill. Resistance would be at $22.48 thereafter. Support is at $20.31. Approximately 10% of the float is short which is likely contributing to a squeeze higher.
11:05 EDTPPandora jumps following CEO share purchase
Shares of Pandora (P) are rallying after the company's CEO disclosed that he had bought 25,000 shares of the company's stock. WHAT'S NEW: In a regulatory filing last night, Pandora CEO Brian McAndrews disclosed that he had bought 25,000 of the company's shares on Wenesday at a price of $18.58 per share. McAndrews now owns over 475,000 shares of the stock, according to the filing. ANALYST REACTION: In a note to investors, Stifel analyst Scott Devitt wrote that McAndrews purchased the stock using his own personal funds. According to the analyst, it is quite rare for CEOs to take such an action. McAndrews' purchase of the stock was "a strong vote of confidence" in the company, Devitt contended. He kept a $29 price target and Buy rating on the shares. WHAT'S NOTABLE: Pandora announced that it would hold a conference call next Tuesday to discuss proceedings before the Copyright Royalty Board. The board will determine the company's new royalty structure by December 2015, Devitt wrote. PRICE ACTION: In mid-morning trading, Pandora climbed $2.30, or 12.5%, to $20.75.
