These Wall street investors...they should just be talking to the drivers. They could have told them this a long time before wasting their money.

Both companies have had a particularly rough ride on the public markets since their respective IPOs earlier this year, as investors continue to question whether Uber or Lyft can achieve profitability in the future. Uber and Lyft were trading on Tuesday more than 30% below their IPO prices of $45 and $72 a share, respectively.

Uber reported a net loss of $5.24 billion for its second quarter of 2019, blaming stock-based compensation costs. By comparison, Lyft lost $644.2 million in the second quarter, representing a significant jump from the $178.9 million it lost a year earlier.

    especially post-covid. No one's taking Ubers anymore. Crumbling industry.

    Hard to believe there is a loss when they make so much off each driver.

    They don't care. They already made their billions of dollars and cashed out.  The current investors are the stupid public or those with very long-term outlook.
