Why did the Peloton share price crash last week?

first_imgWhat’s going on with the Peloton share price?2020 proved to be a stellar year of growth for Peloton Interactive. With the pandemic closing the doors of gyms, many individuals turned to its home equipment products to stay in shape. As a result, its level of sales shot up by triple-digit rates while its losses narrowed. Yet even though the Peloton share price has been sliding since the start of the year, its most recent earnings report showed revenue increasing by 140% from $524.6m to $1.26bn year-on-year.5G is here – and shares of this ‘sleeping giant’ could be a great way for you to potentially profit!According to one leading industry firm, the 5G boom could create a global industry worth US$12.3 TRILLION out of thin air…And if you click here we’ll show you something that could be key to unlocking 5G’s full potential…Given that company appears to be performing exceptionally well, what caused the sudden drop last week? Earlier in April, the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) issued a statement. It advised owners of Peloton’s Tread+ machines to stop using them at once following growing reports of injuries and the tragic death of a child. After some deliberation, the management team announced last week that it is executing a major product recall of over 125,000 machines.Injuries related to treadmills are not an uncommon occurrence and are certainly not unique to Peloton. In fact, according to the latest statistics published by CPSC, in 2014 around 24,400 emergency room visits occurred due to injuries sustained by treadmill machines. Regardless, this incident has undoubtedly tarnished the firm’s reputation in the eyes of many consumers. And the impact of this recall on its revenue for April to June is expected to be around $165m. So seeing the Peloton share price cut by double-digits last week wasn’t too surprising to me.Moving forwardThe Peloton share price has been on a steady slide since the start of 2021. There appears to be growing uncertainty about whether the company can maintain its level of growth in a post-pandemic world. This uncertainty is only more prominent now after last week’s announcement.However, while gyms may be reopening, one investing guru doesn’t appear to be concerned. Cathie Wood’s ARK Next Generation Internet exchange-traded fund just bought an additional $11.7m worth of Peloton stock. This brings her total investment to around $124m.The bottom lineBefore recent events, Peloton has been widely popular among its customers, some of whom have become addicted to the experience.  The connected home-fitness market is relatively new. But given the cult-like following the company has managed to achieve, I don’t think the reopening of gyms is going to pose as big a threat as some might expect.Having said that, the management team has a long road ahead to repairing the damage to its brand. As it stands, it is unknown as to how many customers intend to seek a full refund. And I think it’s also possible for a product liability lawsuit to occur in the future. But taking a step back, these are ultimately short-term problems for the business. I think Cathie Wood’s decision to invest more is sound. Therefore, I would consider adding this stock to my growth portfolio, despite the short-term volatility that likely lies ahead. But it’s not the only one. Did you know… The Peloton Interactive (NASDAQ:PTON) share price dropped by 13% last week after the home-fitness equipment maker announced a product recall. The US stock is still up by around 90% over the past 12 months. But is this an opportunity to add the company to my portfolio at a discount?

Montpellier snatch victory from Racing Metro in Top 14 semi final

first_imgWednesday Jun 1, 2011 Montpellier snatch victory from Racing Metro in Top 14 semi final Earlier in the week you saw Rupeni Caucau score two tries to help take Toulouse through to the Top 14 final . In the second semi final, Montpellier beat Racing Metro with another dramatic finish.A last gasp penalty from Argentinian Martin Bustos Moyano shattered a brilliant comeback from Racing, after they had fought back well from being 23-6 down early in the second half. The game ended 26-25, with Montpellier heading into their first Top 14 final ever.“It is unbelievable, unbelievable. I thought we were beaten,” said an ecstatic coach, Fabien Galthie. Coach Eric Bechu was equally overjoyed. “It’s great for the guys. They fought until the end despite several of them suffering from cramp,” he said.With minutes left and both sides looking fatigued, Racing Metro appeared to have won the game as they took the lead with a try to Jone Qovu. Montpellier kept at it though, working their way downfield before earning the decisive penalty.As time was up, Racing got in a position to steal the game with a dropgoal, but perhaps rushed things a bit as Jonathan Wisniewski’s effort went wide. Montpellier went through, and will face Toulouse in the Top 14 Final, this coming Saturday, the 4th of June. The following is extended highlights of the game.

The Abacus house is designed around two paradoxical ideas: Over build on a small site and considering we are overbuilding how do we maximize the minimal resources of light and ventilation that are still available to us?An abacus is a device for making a mathematical calculation. On the Ground floor and the first floor being able to see across the length of the site, one experiences the length of the site creating a feeling of expanse and openness. Horizontal circulation was completely eliminated with the vertical circulation opening into common spaces on all floors.Save this picture!© Anand JajuSave this picture!Floor PlansEvery available angle was calculated for light and ventilation. On the Ground Floor, the courtyard opens up from the Living Room. On the First Floor, eliminating the dividing walls, light filters into the center of the house. One foot wide fixed glass slit windows let in reflected horizontal light. A cut-out skylight into the balcony on the Second Floor allows for light to pour in from above. The Second Floor a narrow balcony and the large staircase windows, allow for light to come into the center of the house.Save this picture!© Anand JajuThe staircase not only connects the different floors but also acts like a stack, allowing for natural ventilation and bringing in the light. With the very close proximity of the neighbor’s residences, the use of metal screens not only articulates the light but also acts as a security device while providing for a privacy screen. Championing the sun as the artist the screens creates dynamic murals on the walls and floors, art that changes with time and the seasons.Save this picture!© Anand JajuThe Abacus is the symbol of the house; it defines the calculations done to achieve the two paradoxical ideas of the client.  As a symbol it screens the house from the peering neighborhood, acting as a safety feature and allowing for those moments to forget the density of the neighborhood, and enjoy the few trees on the street.Save this picture!© Anand JajuWhile exploring solutions for the design of the Abacus, we were keen on it being a natural material. The palette of the interior has a natural stone with a panel wall in Brick. The leftover Teak Wood from the carpentry was used to create the Abacus. Bolted onto metal thread rods the swiveling of the wood pieces allows for a dynamic facade.Save this picture!© Anand JajuProject gallerySee allShow lessAround Follie / Z_LabSelected ProjectsCover / APOLLO Architects & AssociatesSelected Projects Share The Abacus House / studioXSSave this projectSaveThe Abacus House / studioXS ShareFacebookTwitterPinterestWhatsappMailOr Clipboard CopyAbout this officestudioXSOfficeFollowProductsWoodConcreteBrick#TagsProjectsBuilt ProjectsSelected ProjectsResidential ArchitectureHousesBangaloreIndiaPublished on February 11, 2019Cite: “The Abacus House / studioXS” 10 Feb 2019.

Growth Energy Outlines Path Forward for RFS in Comments to EPA

first_img SHARE By Gary Truitt – Jul 15, 2013 Facebook Twitter Growth Energy Outlines Path Forward for RFS in Comments to EPA Previous articleSlight Decline in Indiana Corn ConditionNext articleThe Road Ahead Unclear for the Farm Bill Gary Truitt SHARE Home Energy Growth Energy Outlines Path Forward for RFS in Comments to EPA Growth Energy has formally submitted comments to the Environmental Protection Agency on pathways forward for the Renewable Fuel Standard. The group highlights the importance of next generation biofuels and how increased market access will play a critical role in the ultimate success of the RFS. CEO Tom Buis writes that Growth Energy’s members and the ethanol industry have produced significant volumes of renewable fuel that have displaced 10-percent of U.S. transportation fuel since the inception of the RFS. He says this has helped reduce our dangerous dependence on foreign oil, improve our air quality, create thousands of jobs and revitalize rural communities nationwide. Buis continues that the industry has successfully built the foundation of the RFS with the first generation of grain-based ethanol production – and is poised to do the same in the next generation with advanced biofuels and cellulosic ethanol.Growth Energy continues to advocate for additional pathways to meet the goals of the RFS – including the new pathway for cellulosic biofuel from corn kernel fiber – as well as additional crop residues. Buis writes Growth Energy believes any renewable biomass meeting the 60-percent greenhouse gas threshold should be able to generate cellulosic RINs.Finally – the comments address the refusal by oil companies and refiners to use higher blends of biofuels to help meet the target goals for the RFS and the calls for repeal. Buis writes the petroleum and other industries have had ample time to plan and adjust their business accordingly to accept higher ethanol blends to meet the volumes outlined in the final RFS as the RFS has been the law of the land since 2007.

China Delays Biotech Crop Approval

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News China Delays Biotech Crop Approval By Gary Truitt – Nov 1, 2013 The American Farm Bureau Federation, American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association and U.S. Canola Association raised concerns about the ongoing delays, lack of transparency and arbitrary decisions in China’s process to approve new biotech traits in a letter to the U.S. Trade Representative, Commerce Secretary and Ag Secretary on Friday. China is now the largest export market for U.S. ag goods – valued at over 32-billion dollars in 2012 – according to the groups – yet China’s biotech approval process has gone from slow – yet predictable – to slower, unpredictable and non-transparent. The groups says the current Chinese approval system is preventing U.S. farmers from adopting new technologies necessary to increase yields, fight pests and weeds, enhance quality and improve environmental performance.Farmers in the U.S. want to help meet China’s food security needs – according to the groups – which note they have been working in partnership with the Chinese food, feed, livestock and textile industries for decades. But they say the ability to efficiently and consistently produce and increase crop production depends on commercializing new biotech traits to ultimately provide more affordable, healthy food and fiber to Chinese consumers.Source: NAFB news service SHARE SHARE Facebook Twitter Facebook Twitter China Delays Biotech Crop Approval Previous articleUSDA Announces Final BSE RuleNext articleNational FFA Officers Chosen Gary Truittlast_img read more
