Here we again have an industry leader that has fallen on hard times–an all too common story in the tech world. Pandora, an originator in the field of streaming music, has consistently lost market share and cache to newer, “hipper” competitors such as Spotify.

The issue here is choice, or rather a lack of it. While Spotify allows users to program their own playlists and listen to songs on demand, Pandora uses music users “like” to provide more content algorithmically. It’s more like a non-controllable radio station than something with which you can DJ a party. And that difference seems to be dooming Pandora despite a blizzard of partnerships and a constant stream of press releases.

As you can tell from our long-term chart below, we have not found much to love here, and our default position has been SELL for years. We have once again downgraded the stock.
