In all, Pandora’s market value has fallen by about $7 billion this year, bringing the company’s value to less than $5 billion. At its peak about two years ago, Pandora’s value was $18 billion, Bloomberg notes.

The last time Pandora had a year this bad in terms of stock performance was 2011. The company’s markekt value fell by 84 percent that year.

Thinking of Liquidating? Think: Wilkerson

When Peter Reines, owner of Reines Jewelers in Charlottesville, VA, decided it was time to turn over the “reins” of his 45-year-old business to Jessica and Kevin Rogers, he chose Wilkerson to run his liquidation sale. It was, he says, the best way to maximize the return on his decades-long investment in fine jewelry. Now, with new owners at the helm, Reines can relax knowing that the sale was a success, and his new life is financially secure. And he’s glad he partnered with Wilkerson for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. “There’s just no way one person or company could run a sale the way we did,” he says.
