Oprah's Home Run with Weight Watchers (WTW) Continues in 2017

Steve Kanaval |

Back in October, we wrote about Oprah Winfrey's investment in Weight Watchers (WTW) regarding how she was about the only person on the planet who could make the level of investment ($50M) needed, and have the overlay of her brand as the kicker. Also, we noted that these unique opportunities where you can buy 10% of a companies outstanding shares at $5.50 and have the stock trade to $24 were meant for the few, not the masses.

Weight Watchers International, Inc. (WTW) has again been recognized by the experts in the 2017 Best Diets rankings released today by U.S. News & World Report. Weight Watchers® earned the top spot in four categories:



  • Ranked #1 for "Best Diet for Fast Weight Loss" for the first year since the category was added in 2016
  • Ranked #1 for "Best Diet for Weight Loss" for the seventh consecutive year
  • Ranked #1 for "Best Commercial Diet" for the seventh consecutive year
  • Ranked #1 for "Easiest Diet to Follow" for the sixth consecutive year since the category was added

"We're honored to be ranked at the highest level for seven straight years by the experts at U.S. News & World Report," said Stacey Mowbray, President of Americas at Weight Watchers International, Inc. "At Weight Watchers, our goal is to continue providing innovative solutions for our members, so we can help them live well while losing weight, find joy in the journey and realize the benefits that go beyond just the number on the scale."
