UPDATE: Pandora continued its nose-dive early Wednesday. Its shares tumbled another 14%, to $8.11, following a financial forecast that disappointed investors.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Pandora's latest financial results aren't music to the ears of investors.

Shares in the online radio service have tumbled 21% in after-hours trading Tuesday, to $7.43, after it forecast bleak fourth-quarter projections despite third-quarter numbers that topped analysts' estimates.

Pandora (P) management warned it expects the company to lose 9 cents to 12 cents a share in fiscal 2013.

The sobering news undercut a fine Q3, in which Pandora's revenue rose 60% for the three months ended in October, to $120 million. Pandora also said "listener hours" in the just-completed quarter soared 67%, year over year, to 3.56 billion.

"This quarter exceeded our expectations as we monetized mobile at record levels," CEO Joe Kennedy said in a statement.
