Investing in Sirius thus had several benefits. SIRI had been reporting positive and significant increase in earnings per share. The 2013t profit margins were 61.83 percent, which is an indicator of the company’s stability, and the company had been expanding in market segments such as telematics.

The strengths of the stock, such as an increase in return on equity and revenue growth, outweighed its poor performance on the stock exchange. This rating means that investors stood to benefit more from investing in the stock than the stocks of other companies, claims The Street.
