Last week Peloton said it expects $700 million to $725 million in revenue in its holiday quarter, short of the $866 million analysts had forecast. It cited lower disposable consumer income and a shift in spending patterns.

Peloton also said it saw its member count decline to 6.7 million during its first quarter from 6.9 in its fourth, reflecting “the rolloff of a Covid-impacted quarter” and a drop in subscribers for the Peloton app.
