Medifast price target raised to $161 from $135 at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser raised her price target on Medifast to $161, saying the company's recent announcement of OPTAVIA weight loss in Singapore and Hong Kong will serve as a "gateway" to China and the rest of Asia in years to come. Weiser estimates that expansion to Asia can drive sales growth by about 25% over the next 12 years as the company looks to address a significant market opportunity, with surveys indicating that "54% of adults in Asia are trying to lose weight". The analyst also kept her Buy rating on Medifast.

Medifast price target raised to $201 from $161 at DA Davidson
DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser raised her price target on Medifast to $201 and kept her Buy rating after its launch of Purposeful Hydration product that may have a positive effect on the company's Health Coach productivity. The analyst adds that the best-case scenario of full adoption by all customers buying a $400/month weight loss Purposeful Hydration program would result in a 10% Health Coach productivity - much higher than the currently modeled 2% growth for FY19. Weiser also cites the attendee increase in the recent national convention of Medifast Health Coaches to 6K this year from 4.1K last year.

DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser raised her price target on Medifast to $249 and kept her Buy rating after its Q2 results showed accelerating sales growth. The analyst adds that operating profit rose 51%, while Sequential Health Coach growth accelerated to 18%. Weiser raises her Medifast EPS view to $4.50 from $3.65 and believes that view remains conservative as it assumes "very little" leverage and deceleration of sequential Health Coach growth going forward.

Nutrisystem more likely than public peers to buy Jenny Craig, says DA Davidson
After The Wall Street Journal recently reported that private equity firm North Castle Partners is seeking a buyer of Jenny Craig, DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser said she sees "zero probability" that Medifast (MED) would acquire it and "almost zero probability" that Weight Watchers (WTW) would buy the company. Nutrisystem (NTRI), however, has already shown an interest in adding non-cannibalizing brands to its portfolio, making it the most likely buyer of Jenny Craig among the publicly-traded weight loss companies Weiser covers, she stated. Nutrisystem, which seems to have hit a wall in growing its biggest brand, may need a bold strategic move to provide visibility on growth and expansion, added the analyst. She keeps Buy ratings on Medifast and Weight Watchers and a Neutral rating on Nutrisystem shares.
