    This is a very top heavy company. The new CEO would need to sack at least one half of the executives and do significant lay off to save cost and restore confidence in this outfit, while restoring the original Weight Watchers franchise which was smudged by the genius of the outgoing CEO.

    Basic points :
    1. Still heavily shorted, with 11% of float sold short.
    2. Still spends heavily on its debt, with interest expense at 6% of revenue in June '21 qtr.
    3. The company allowed analysts to get way out in front with their estimates this year, and if you look at the data here at Yahoo, you will see analysts have since cut their estimates by 20% for this year and next. These cuts have damaged the stock.
    4. On the positive side, the stock is currently selling below 1x revenues, so I would say it's a value stock.
    5. The health message is still valuable. It seems to be pretty clear that obesity is associated with increased mortality from COVID and other ailments.

    And a new 52 week low ... I suppose they are keeping Mindy around to face the music, so the next CEO can only improve.

    That is exactly what happens when a board of directors sheepishly goes along with any nonsense that the CEO presents to them. The BOD and its chairman fell asleep behind the wheel....for years!!

    Retail tax loss selling used to be only in December. Nowadays people start selling for tax deductions much earlier. Some of these losses may be due to tax loss selling ahead of the earnings next week.

    3 more days until fund and excise tax period over. Lets get this done fast, I would not be surprised to see a 15 trade. Did not hold 18... not good, all depends on who wants to dump this and clean it out of their portfolio. Lots of tax losses to be had.

    This was from the BBC web site in May 2019....how true this is today:
    "For a business that now sees itself as being all about wellness and not just shedding pounds, the company formerly known as Weight Watchers looks like it has been on a crash diet.
    In the second half of its financial year, it dropped 600,000 subscribers.
    And at the beginning of its peak season - when Christmas overindulgence morphs into New Year virtuousness - membership is well below forecasts.
    The problem, it seems, is all in the name.
    After 56 years of trading as Weight Watchers, the company changed its name last September to WW, which, it says, doesn't stand for anything - not Weight Watchers, not even its new tagline "Wellness that Works".

    Wonder why Oprah felt compelled to thank Mindy Grossman. She made the brand confusing and lost investors quite a bit of money. You need private equity to come in and fix this business. Take it private, and then relist once it's back on track. And oh year, let's bring back the Weight Watchers name. What in the world is WW?

    I took a read on youtube and also some social media forums--- as mentioned here the branding has been the biggest issue with this company. I said a few weeks ago getting the company back to its core first, then supplementing with the wellness was the way to go. Build that brand awareness back, take out confusion. Just my two cents-- and the new programs are coming I suspect they announce after Q3 earnings. We are at a very attractive stock price here at 18 for the future and gain potential. Will take time.

    At what point does this company look appealing to Private Equity? M&A activity has run rampant this year, best market I've ever experienced. WW seems ripe for the picking.

    interesting day--- the possibility of really tanking was there early-- and we tested 17.50... We are now back above 18... Dont expect anything due to big funds and hedge selling by Oct 31. I am encouraged we held and stock acting good at the 18 level.

    well we know that the Q3 and Q4 will be meh at best. If the results are not a total disaster, I think the bad news is already in the stock price. If they fall off the cliff then with the year end tax selling we may be looking at the low teens.

    very good to see a move up but its low volume and not a confirmed move... downside pressure at the moment is gone so this is good. Still too much risk with Q3 earnings coming and tax loss selling.
