Needham & Company maintains a 'Buy' on Pandora (NYSE: P) price target of $13.00.

Analyst, Laura Martin, said, "We would use today’s price weakness as a buying opportunity based on the following analytical building blocks: 1. Pricing Momentum. P’s revenue growth is under pressure because the pricing on mobile is 1/3 that of desktop and mobile listening is increasing at a high rate...2. Cars. 16 car models have agreed to build P into their dashboards...3. Valuation Multiple. US GDP growth of 1-2% means growth is hard to find and therefore rare and valuable...4. Competitor Irrelevance. Even in the face of rising competition and substantial publicity surrounding Spodify and I heart Radio, P’s total listening hours and active users over-delivered estimates in 4Q, growing 108% and 62%, respectively."

Martin cuts FY13 EPS loss from $0.01 to $0.11, but raises revenues from $415.9 mln to $419.2 mln.
