Peloton stock gains after Wedbush pens bullish noteShares of Peloton Interactive Software Inc. are up 0.7% in premarket trading Wednesday after Wedbush analyst James Hardiman initiated coverage of the exercise company's stock with an outperform rating and $37 price target. "Based on our analysis of the business model, our expansive survey work of both Peloton users and prospective customers, and our own experience with the product, we do not believe that Peloton will prove to be a fad, but instead one of a small number of fitness companies likely to be an enduring force going forward," he wrote. Hardiman thinks that Peloton could eventually come to amass 4 million subscribers, including 3 million in the U.S., up from about 600,000 currently. That would equate to about 2% of U.S. households. Peloton shares are up 27% over the past three months, as the S&P 500 has gained 9.6%.
