as of April 11, 2023
Goldman upgraded the stock today based on a deal Weight Watchers made with Sequence, a Telehealth provider. WW will begin to offer a pharmaceutical based clinical subscription service that it can integrate with its legacy behavioral based weight management offering. That said, Weekend Health Inc. (Sequence) is 2 years old (I think?) and has over $25 million in revenue. Though WW generates over $1 billion in annual revenue, this bolt on acquisition could mean it finally starts growing again. Goldman puts a $13 price target and it’s up 60% today to $6.75. Personally, I think this company cannot actually create permanent value. The stock seemed to be a pump and dump scam back in 2015 – 2019 when it went from $10 to $100 on the back of Oprah buying stock. Until this deal with Sequence, the stock was off 90%. Don’t know that this one is a 10 bagger and with sales and profit contracting, WW is more dead weight going into a possible recession.
