Peloton Interactive, the well-known maker of spin bikes and treadmills, is set to announce its fiscal-first-quarter earnings on Thursday. Analysts are anticipating a decline in revenue for the period.
Earnings Expectations For the fiscal first quarter, which ended on September 30, analysts surveyed by FactSet predict that Peloton (ticker: PTON) will report a loss of 34 cents per share, with revenue totaling $589 million. This is lower compared to the same period last year when the company reported a loss of $1.20 per share on revenue of $617 million.
Peloton's Response Although Peloton did not provide immediate comment on these concerns, Chief Financial Officer Elizabeth Coddington addressed them during the company's fourth-quarter earnings call in August. Coddington mentioned that Peloton expects churn to decrease in the fiscal first quarter as seasonal trends improve.
Struggles Amid Changing Landscape Peloton experienced significant success during the pandemic, benefiting from gym closures and increased demand for at-home fitness solutions. However, with gyms now open and rising inflation affecting consumer spending, Peloton has faced challenges. Its shares have plummeted to $4.72 in Wednesday trading from a record high of $167.42 in January 2021, according to Dow Jones Market Data.
