Best performance in a year: still terrible. How many years will this take to unwind or be acquired?

Lots to be done still, Biggest concern is that even their content subscription business is down.

I thought this was the future?

Peloton is the future - but ultimately what business is it in? Software, hardware, athletics, entertainment commerce = brilliant but many facets of the value chain require focus. Building out the operating system and sharing into a greater ecosystem may be one future route for success.

Thanks for your comments @Ronald_C_Pruett_Jr

Peloton is a tremendous concept but a badly-run business. John Foley did create a great product, but never had the Sheryl Sandberg or Tim Cook with him to commercialize it well.
