Weight Watchers CEO Mindy Grossman Buys Stock After Earnings Shock

WW (ticker: WTW) President and CEO Mindy Grossman did something on Tuesday for the first time since her tenure began in July 2017. She bought shares of the company, formerly known as Weight Watchers, on the open market.

Women are entering the U.S. workforce in the highest numbers in decades, but gender parity isn’t improving, says Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg. The Leanin.org founder spoke at a WSJ event on women in the workplace.

Grossman paid $350,707 for 7,000 shares of WW, which was renamed on Sept. 24, at an average price of $50.10 each. She now owns 48,533 shares in her personal account. Grossman disclosed the transaction in a filing she made late on Tuesday to the Securities and Exchange Commission.

WW shares are up for the year, with a 15% gain year to date through Tuesday’s close. That’s impressive, considering that the S&P 500 is only eking out a 3% gain so far in 2018, but even more so because WW is still recovering from a shellacking. The stock collapsed 30% last Friday after the company reported mixed third-quarter earnings.

WW didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.

Since Grossman started on July 5, WW shares have surged 57%. She had stepped down as CEO of multichannel retailer HSN to make the move, and the day after she started at WW, QVC reached a deal to buy HSN. The combined company is now known as Qurate Retail (QRTEA).

Weight Watchers (WTW)

Market Cap: $3 billion

Big Idea: Healthy eating and fitness lifestyle trends are more prevalent today than ever before, and this is dramatically expanding the overall health and fitness market, in which Weight Watchers (NYSE:WTW) is a big player.

The bull thesis on WTW stock finds its roots in the rise of photo and video sharing apps like Instagram and Snapchat. Because everyone is sharing photos everywhere on these apps, everyone wants to look good in their shared photos, and one way of looking good is through health and fitness. As such, the rise of Instagram and Snapchat has been accompanied by a boom in the health and fitness industry.

Weight Watchers is at the heart of this boom. Not only is their greater desire among consumers to eat healthily and lead an active lifestyle, but celebrity endorsement of weight loss programs from widely followed icons such as Oprah has empowered a new generation of consumers inspired to lose weight.

These two trends won’t reverse course any time soon. Consumers are only becoming more open about weight loss, and more eager to become fit and healthy. As these two trends spread globally over the next several years, Weight Watchers’ business should grow by leaps and bounds. Right now, this is just a $3 billion company. The weight management market in the U.S. alone is expected to be in excess of $250 billion by 2024. Thus, there’s lots of room for Weight Watchers to become a much bigger and much more valuable company over the next several years.
