A few investors from Wall Street are pushing for Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL) to acquire Peloton; however, no sign indicates the company’s intention to do so. The investor predicts that the acquisition of Peleton Inc is a good move for the company, as it could be the key to placing the struggling fitness business at the top.
However, the purchase of Peleton’s stocks would be costly for Apple Inc as the company is about to launch its first products for 2022. In addition, during the pandemic, Peleton’s sales were less than the predicted earnings by its investors.
Peleton’s profits dropped over the last two years. However, the company is still valued above $8 billion, which is high for the giant software’s portfolio. Other factors that hinder the deal from pushing forward include content, technology, and investors.
