  • Weight Watchers Earnings Beat Street Estimates (WTW)

    The New York-based provider of weight management services, Weight Watchers (WTW) reported quarterly operating results after the closing bell on Thursday which topped analysts' expectations. The personal services bellwether posted second quarter earnings of $1.15 per share, beating the projected $1.12 but falling short of EPS in the prior year period which stood at $1.36; the company also raked in net income of $64.9 million compared to Q2 in 2012 when the figure stood at $77.5 million. In regards to the weaker than projected revenues, the company's CEO, Jim Chambers, commented "As an offset, we are making good progress with our cost savings agenda. We know there's much more to be done to improve overall business performance. While I'm excited about the team's plans for the January 2014 campaign, the 2013 recruitment weakness means that we'll start 2014 with fewer active members and therefore a lower earnings base". Weight Watchers shares slipped lower on Thursday, shedding 0.89% on the day. The stock is down 10% YTD. The Bottom Line Shares of Weight Watchers (WTW) are yielding 1.49% based on Thursday's closing price of $47.03.
