Pandora deal negative, says Pacific Crest
Pacific Crest analyst Andy Hargreaves says that Pandora's deals with music labels create a business model that "is fraught with a lack of limited control of content costs and a lack of incremental leverage on operating expenses." The analyst says that the agreement "cedes control of (Pandora's) content costs to the major labels," significantly reducing his confidence in the company's profitability going forward. He keeps an Underweight rating on the stock.
