Stefan Culibrk of Highway One Asset Management presented his investment thesis on Peloton Interactive (US: PTON) at Wide-Moat Investing Summit 2021.
Peloton is a vertically integrated media company operating in the at-home fitness industry. The company makes, markets, retails, and delivers high-end bikes and treadmills. The secret sauce is in the integration of hardware, software, and content: Peloton produces engaging boutique fitness content streamed on and off the devices.
In this session, Stefan compares Peloton to Planet Fitness (US: PLNT) and shows that Peloton’s offering has clear advantages in terms of results, cost, and the user experience versus a low-cost physical gym membership.
The founders started the company in New York City in 2012 and still run it. Stefan believes that the management team is focused on the right KPIs and that it passed an important test during the recent recall.
Over the next decade, Stefan sees potential for 30 million subscriptions and 60 million members (halfway to gym penetration), up from 4.5 million members recently. This would result in an estimated gross profit of $20 billion and operating profit of $10 billion, supporting an attractive long-term return.
Stefan started the session with an update of his investment thesis on Interactive Brokers (US: IBKR), which he had originally presented in July 2020.
