Exercise machine and workout platform Peloton went on a monster run in 2020 and early this year as stay-at-home workers sought a way to exercise while sheltering in place. Can Peloton Interactive (PTON) do it again? One thing in its favor is that many workers are opting to continue working at home even as the economy reopens on a limited basis.

The 82 RS rating means that Peloton stock is in the top 18% of all stocks in price performance over the past year. It’s a significant move because market research shows that the best stocks often have an 80 or better RS Rating as they launch their biggest price moves.
