A Forgettable Week For SBS

Spanish Broadcasting System stock is in a free-fall, and on Friday shares fell another 2.9%, to $1.35. It’s quite a swoon for SBS, which was delisted from Nasdaq on Jan. 18 and shifted to an over-the-counter exchange the next day with its stock valued at $2.45. Now with the ticker symbol “SBSAA,” SBS’s now defunct stock had been as high as $5.25 in 2016. It had also been pegged with a one-year price target of $19. Company execs have been mum on the stock dip.

Meanwhile, just when company executives could breathe a sigh of relief, as Cumulus Media shares jumped ahead of the $1 benchmark that resets the clock on a possible delisting warning, the No. 2 radio company by total number of stations suffered a setback on Friday with a 6-cent dip, putting it at 99 cents.

In other action involving radio companies, iHeartMedia had a lackluster trading day, finishing unchanged at $1.14.

The RBR Radio Index fell 6.348, or 1.06%, to 594.097.
