Weight Watchers paid length of stay increasing due to Connect, says Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Alex Fuhrman said Connect, Weight Watchers' social media platform, is possibly "the most important change to happen in the last 5 years" at the company and he attributes the rise of the platform as the reason that paid length of stay has just started to increase for the first time in years. The analyst, who thinks this trend is "just getting started" based on his positive view of the Connect platform, keeps a Buy rating and $70 price target on Weight Watchers shares.
