Who said Wall Street made any sense?

My guess is they're worried about competition from Google, hence the downgrade.

Can't they see that  2 good quarters of a subscription based technology product certainly means this company and stock have a long runway and are a good long term investment within a stable, competition free market?

Well if a company says they're going to make lodes of money, who are we to disagree?

The increased revenue, but they were still unprofitable.  You're allowed to be unprofitable if your long term plan makes sense, like Amazon.com.  However, Pandora's future profitability is still dicey - it relies on  very large number of paid subscribers, or more ad revenue.  Wall Street apparently doesn't think either of those scenarios are likely to happen.

obvious to those who know there are many other streaming services that have wider selection of bands and full albums, and that there are tons of great review and anthology sites to find your new bands.

Ok then, what should I be using instead of Pandora on my phone?

I have absolutely no interest in doing that.  But the Spotify ads keep telling me they can, can't remember if you have to pay or not.  I wouldn't be surprised if some of the others do too.

Spotify is a much better service with a deeper catalog. If you pay for anything, pay for that, not Pandora.

I've used quite a few of these services, and it depends on what you want it to do for you. Spotify has the absolute best catalog service out there, as others have stated. I used it for a short time, and it was awesome. Think of having your iTunes account be their entire catalog, instead of what you own, available to you at all times. Their one downside, as well as every other service save Pandora, is their streaming radio. Pandora blows them all out of the water. Of course, that is the only service Pandora offers. So again, it depends on what you want out of application you pick.

Nothing could show more of a complete incomprehension of what Pandora does than the statement, "Penetrating the local ad market will be an important step."
