Future outlook and analyst’s remarks
For Q4, Peloton forecasts its revenue to fall between $675 million and $700 million on up to $120 million in loss. In comparison, analysts anticipated $820 million in revenue and $19 million of adjusted EBITDA loss.
Despite the let-down, Loop Capital’s Daniel Adam dubs the stock a “buy” with upside to $55 a share. On CNBC’s “Worldwide Exchange”, he said:
At this point, the worst-case scenario seems to be priced in. The most recent leg down is on cash concerns, but we think they have ample cash to survive at least the next few years. PTON will come out a strong, formidable player in a much more consolidated market.
