Nautilus (NLS) saw a positive improvement to its Relative Strength (RS) Rating on Wednesday, rising from 78 to 82. After being pummeled by archrival Peloton (PTON) prior to the coronavirus pandemic, veteran exercise machine maker Nautilus mounted a comeback last year as stay-at-home workers turned to home exercise gear. The question now: Can Nautilus hold its market share faced with Peloton’s big expansion plans?
The 82 Relative Strength Rating means Nautilus has outperformed 82% of all stocks over the past year. That jump is significant because history shows that top-performing stocks typically have an RS Rating of above 80 in the early stages of their moves.
