Barclays maintains an 'Underweight' on Pandora (NYSE: P) price target raised $1 to $9.

Analyst, Anthony DiClemente, said, "While results indicate P is gaining traction with advertisers, it continues to lose money as PF net loss grew driven by content acquisition costs, which represented 69% of revenue, up 1200 bps Y/Y. While P's brand and offering are strong, we think profitability will remain a struggle given the continued shift to mobile listening. Our thesis remains intact as P is seeing negative leverage on content acquisition costs and continued softness in mobile pricing."

DiClemente raises FY12 EPS loss from -0.16 to -0.11 and FY13 from -0.10 to -0.02.
