This may seem like an inauspicious time to invest in consumer discretionary companies. Wayfair (NYSE: W) and Peloton Interactive (NASDAQ: PTON) have both had success over the years. Wayfair, an e-commerce seller of home-related goods (e.g., furnishings and housewares) did well during the early days of the pandemic.
Peloton (NASDAQ: PTON) thrived during the pandemic while Disney's (NYSE: DIS) business was devastated. In this video, Fool.com contributor and finance professor Parkev Tatevosian chooses his favorite growth stock to buy.
Connected-fitness company Peloton (NASDAQ: PTON) has been attempting to turn itself around since the beginning of 2022. Under CEO Barry McCarthy, the company has slowed the bleeding. Under McCarthy, Peloton set a stretch goal of eventually reaching 100 million members.

Perhaps nothing is as startling as Peloton Interactive's (NASDAQ: PTON) monumental rise than its dramatic plunge. As of this writing, shares are trading 96% below their all-time high from about two and a half years ago, reflecting investors' deep pessimism. More recently, Peloton's latest financial results for its fiscal 2023 third quarter (ended March 31) were a mixed bag.
It's hard to understate how dramatic Peloton Interactive's (NASDAQ: PTON) rise and fall over the past few years has been. Assuming Peloton is able to successfully execute its ongoing turnaround strategy and get the business on a better path, where could the consumer discretionary stock be three years from now? The name of the game for Peloton is to find ways to attract more connected-fitness subscribers, which are users who own a piece of equipment and pay the monthly membership fee for access to the workout content.
The exercise equipment maker is shifting to an app-based subscription model, but it is still losing money.

The fitness equipment maker had announced a costly recall of its 'Tread+' treadmill in 2021 following the reports of multiple injuries and the death of a child in an accident. Shares of Peloton were up 3.1% at $7.4 in morning trading. Peloton's Tread+ is a "slat-belt" treadmill that needs a higher torque motor and ground clearance than a typical home treadmill, making them a risk for children and pets.
In a bear market, it can mean sitting on the sidelines until prices fall just a little more. In a bull market, it can mean giving in to euphoria and buying a stock just because it's going up. Nobody can predict with 100% certainty what the stock market will do.
Peloton's bike recall likely won't be as a detrimental to the stock as the 2021 treadmill recall, according BMO Capital Markets.
Two words can sum up the experience of Peloton Interactive (NASDAQ: PTON) shares since the company went public in late 2019: extreme volatility. Now in early 2023, with the founder out, declining profit margins, and a stagnating user base, shares of the stock have plummeted to below $10. Down 95% from all-time highs, is Peloton stock officially a bargain?

The Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX: ^IXIC) managed to buck the downward trend with a slight gain, but the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJINDICES: ^DJI) was the big loser on the day, and the S&P 500 (SNPINDEX: ^GSPC) also gave up ground. Weighing the most on the Dow was Disney (NYSE: DIS), which fell sharply after reporting its latest financial results. The news for Peloton Interactive (NASDAQ: PTON) was arguably worse, as shareholders had to deal with yet another recall of its connected exercise equipment.
Yahoo Finance Live anchors Akiko Fujita and Seana Smith highlight several of today's leading news stories.

Yahoo Finance Live discusses a fall in shares of Peloton after 2.2 million bikes were recalled by the company due to an issue with faulty bike seats.
Shares of Peloton Interactive tumbled 6.0% in early trading and hit a more than six-month low on Thursday after the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission recalled two million of its exercise bikes due to injury risks. Including the session move, Peloton's stock is down about 12% year-to-date and off more than 40% over the past 12 months. Peloton's shares also tumbled last week after the company reported a wider-than-expected quarterly loss and said it expects to sign up fewer members for the year.
The voluntary recall piles on more pressure on Peloton as it works to tackle waning demand for its fitness equipment amid an uncertain economy. "We have identified 35 reports of seat posts breaking out of 2,160,000 units sold in the United States, as of April 30," Peloton said in a statement, after disclosing the defect earlier this month. During the January to March quarter, Peloton said it had accrued $8.4 million as an estimated expense related to "voluntary corrective action plan" involving the defect.
This is not the connected-fitness equipment-focused company it was three years ago -- and it doesn't have to be.
