PTON stock is very bullish on many technical indicators, specifically the 50MA and 200MA. The 50-day moving average is the SMA200, which is generally used by long-term trend followers, and one that mainly looks for the most important trends, regardless of whether the stock is on a bull or bear trend. The 200-day moving average, or S MA, is easier to calculate, but most shareholders will view the above-average cross as a means to an end – the – annual forecast, which is most likely a sign that stocks are either on a bullish or pronounced trend, with a cross below the 200-day average indicating a negative trend and a cross above indicating a future upward trend.
Why is Peloton Stock (PTON) Up?
The answer why Peloton stock is very simple- more revenue due to the coronavirus. Pelton reported an 11% increase in subscribers and a 66% surge in revenue. Cash is king. Peloton investors should also be delighted to know that subscribers spike 94% (886,100) and are on pace to break 1 million soon.
Although these are all great nows, we cannot be oblivious to the HUGE risk of subscription-based businesses with an economy that is likely to drop. The Fed is doing everything they can to keep the economy from sinking into a depression, but if they don’t get America open soon, expect the worse. That is why we are VERY cautious about subscription-based businesses in this environment.
