Forget Apple -- This Is the Real Pandora Killer

The following video is from Thursday's MarketFoolery podcast, in which host Chris Hill, along with analysts Dave Meier, Matt Koppenheffer, and Isaac Pino discuss the top business and investing stories of the day.

Pandora is the biggest online radio service, and it happens to pay the most fees to ASCAP, as well as other groups. In this installment of MarketFoolery, the guys analyze Pandora's latest attempt to lower the fees it pays out, and why fees (and not Apple's new iRadio) are the greatest threat facing Pandora.

Pandora has won millions of devotees among music fans, but few supporters on Wall Street. The online jukebox seems to be redefining the way we consume music, a transformation that's only likely to grow. But high royalty rates, and competition from all corners, threatens to silence the company. Can Pandora translate success with its listeners into a prosperous business model that will deliver for investors? Learn about the key opportunities and potential pitfalls facing the upstart radio streamer in The Motley Fool's premium research report.
