Zacks Equity Research

Weight Watchers International, Inc. WTW was a big mover last session, as the company saw its shares rise more than 5% on the day. The move came on solid volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This stock, which remained volatile and traded within the range of $17.70–$21.42 in the past one-month time frame, witnessed a sharp increase yesterday.
