Weight Watchers price target cut to $90 from $115 at KeyBanc
KeyBanc analyst Edward Yruma backed an Overweight rating on Weight Watchers but cut his price target to $90 following the company's quarterly results, telling investors in a research note that the company is seeing an accelerated shift to digital, which he thinks will be positive long term, but creates some near-term "noise."

Weight Watchers valuation 'decoupled from reality,' says JPMorgan
JPMorgan analyst Christina Brathwaite believes the current valuation of Weight Watchers has "significantly decoupled from its earnings growth reality." The shares currently trade at less than 14 times 2019 earnings estimates despite a 20% earnings growth opportunity in 2019 and 2020, Brathwaite tells investors in a research note after hosting investor meetings with management. The analyst recommends using the recent pullback as a buying opportunity. She keeps an Overweight rating on Weight Watchers with a $70 price target. Brathwaite believes the programs launched to close out this year, combined with plans for a marketing campaign featuring Oprah into the New Year resolution sign up period, should drive a member growth reacceleration in Q1 of 2019.

Davidson cautious on Weight Watchers Q4, but sees near 'rock-bottom' valuation
DA Davidson analyst Linda Bolton Weiser left a meeting with Weight Watchers CEO Mindy Grossman and CFO Nick Hotchkin "cautious" on the company's Q4. After a "sub-optimal" September, trends made a come-back in October and November, but it was a "negative indicator" when Oprah tweeted the Share the Gift of Health promotion on December 4, Bolton Weiser tells investors in a research note titled "Nearing 'Rock-Bottom' Valuation, In Our View." However, when Weight Watchers reports in February, investor attention will be on the 2019 outlook and not the Q4 results, adds the analyst. And she notes that Grossman was adamant that the power of the 2019 campaign will be stronger than in 2018. Bolton Weiser believes her 2019 revenue growth estimate of 12% is reasonable and that a share catalyst is coming "very soon" as the company expects to announce new major celebrity spokespeople in the U.S. and U.K. in the coming weeks. She believes the stock, at 10.2 times 2020 earnings estimates, is getting "quite close to rock-bottom valuation," which would be $39. The analyst keeps an Outperform rating on the shares with a $137 12-18 month price target.

WW price target lowered to $80 from $120 at Craig-Hallum
Craig-Hallum analyst Alex Fuhrman lowered his price target for WW to $80 from $120 as Google searches appear to be down sharply year over year in December and first few days In January. Most major diet brands appear to be experiencing declining year over year Google searches to start the year, with Hydroxycut and Nutrisystem's (NTRI) South Beach Diet standing out with positive year over year growth in searches, he contends. Regarding WW, while the sharp decline in Google searches is disappointing, Fuhrman believes there are several factors that could be materially skewing the data lower, including name change from Weight Watchers to WW, shift toward digital marketing, and invite-a-friend promotion. The analyst reiterates a Buy rating on WW shares.
