Pandora stock lost almost $150 million in value on Friday and Monday after a SiriusXM executive threw cold water on talk of an acquisition.  “With respect to all the chatter about [these] acquisitions, you have to look at them as them not being likely,” said SiriusXM's CFO. “That’s the way to characterize it.”

Liberty Media had offered a reported $15 per share at a $3.4 billion valuation, which the Pandora board rejected. As of 11:15 AM on Friday the stock was trading at $12.26 down another 1.68% for the day.
