Peloton Is Making Moves Into Corporate Wellness

When a company has multiple ways to make money, investors often say that the company has optionality. Peloton (NASDAQ:PTON) the workout-at-home company, has recently announced its getting into corporate wellness. This could potentially turn into a massive growth opportunity for the brand. On a MotleyFool Live episode recorded on June 30, Fool contributors Brian Feroldi and Brian Stoffel talk about the early results from the initiative. Brian Stoffel: I'm going to move on to a much smaller company, which is Peloton. Peloton's an interesting company because it's one that when it went public, I thought it was one of the most ridiculous things in the world. Like $2500 for a machine and that's it. But the more I learned about it, the more I realized that there's a lot happening here at this ...

What are GMOs — and do I really need to avoid them?

Genetically modified organisms, or GMOs, tend to have a poor reputation. Play a word association game with GMOs and people often think along the lines of gross mutations, unhealthy food, and overall garbage stuff. To put it simply, in many people's minds, GMO is just another way to refer to "bad" food. But are GMOs really as evil as we think? When it comes to GMO, there's this idea that you need to be either completely for or completely against them. Problem is, most people don't realize what makes something genetically modified, or just how common GMOs are. Fun fact: Unless you're eating certified organic foods exclusively, you're probably consuming GMOs of some kind. And if you look at the big picture, most of the "domestic" forms of food that we eat — like watermelon — don't look at al...

Not ready to eat GMO animals? Then you might not want to order the salmon

Recently, I did something I had not done in a long time. I ate in a restaurant with my family. Actually, we ate on the outdoor patio, since my kids are too young to be vaccinated and we are somewhat more squeamish than average about COVID, but it was nevertheless a refreshing return to normality and a welcome rest from battling traffic on the way to the Delaware seashore.  I ordered a salad with blackened salmon. If we make the trip again, I will make a different choice.  That’s because last week, biotech company AquaBounty Technologies Inc. announced that it is harvesting several tons of genetically modified salmon, which will soon be sold at restaurants and other “away-from-home” dining retailers around the country.
