Hello Mike. Good question. I made really good money on Weight Watchers back in 2010 and 2011. I thought it was a low capital-requirement, highly profitable company with a nice moat. Inside Value recommended it too. The shares spiked to above $60, and I got out. Then they borrowed a lot of money to by back stock at a high price. Very bad move. And in the recession their attendance went down.

Still the company has the same core value, so I'm studying whether to get back in.

I'd like to see what the Inside Value guys think about the debt and the performance of their strategy to invest in fancier store-fronts.

ciao
