Lower-priced pricing tiers would be helpful. Rdio seems to have caught on. And more lower-priced family tiers. Different product offerings.   Why? Because most people are not going to pay for most of their music.   Rdio seems pretty good and reasonable.   These big corporations need to clue in that say, a family of 5 is not going to be paying for $9.99 each per month for music service. And most people don't want premium, they want something like terrestrial...
Troll alert which is me. Several times this weekend tried to use my iPhone 6+. Photos went into blur mode and had to force quit photo app. Don't trust it anymore. Overall photo app is flaky as all get out.
P/E ratio is  a meaningless measure in regards to stock price. In and of itself.
Apple will probably be at about 50%, which is just fine for competition and a healthy ecosystem.
The AWatch could be a threat. We don't know. At this point, pretty much no threat. Most people don't seem to really care. 
The watch is a long-term strategy. Maybe in 10 years they will have much of the functionality of a phone without a phone and will be ubitquitious. Who knows. Right now, people are getting too worked up about the A-watch. It's too expensive for most people and they have enough trouble affording a phone. It's a watch for the affluent.

That would be a lot of money. Most people don't pay and don't want to and are willing (and do) put up with commercials on streaming radio.
Ad-supported can work. It has worked for terrestrial radio for decades.   If they are not making money now, then there are not enough ads.
