Avoiding Peloton’s Wild Ride, article by inVision Edge
Peloton is one of the most fascinating stories in business over the last decade. They broke into the market with an innovative product targeted toward a niche segment with almost perfect timing. The COVID pandemic fueled massive demand for their products, and the company rode that wave all the way to a peak market capitalization of almost $47 billion USD in January 2021.
Since reaching the top of the mountain, they’ve seen their valuation crash through the floor, with their market cap dropping all the way to $2.99 billion as of October 2022. In case math isn’t your strong suit, that’s a drop of roughly $44 billion dollars! Their latest financial reporting also showed a $1.24 billion loss in the first 3-quarters of 2022.
So where did Peloton go wrong, what can we learn from it, and how might they bounce back?
