I own both XM and Sirius stock. I believe XM has significantly more short-term value. Sirius trades at a much higher market cap w/ roughly half the subscribers and significantly higher cost per subscriber. Therefore much longer lead time until cash flow break-even (let alone positive). Sirius is consistently 6-9 months behind in technology and has significantly more float, i.e. dilution. The pluses for Sirius are in content, but at what cost?

I like both long-term, but the better buy today is clearly XM.
