High moat, low valuation, obesity epidemic.
You're a guy, aren't you? Here is a woman's perspective on this too: not only obesity epidemic, but obsession with binging and dieting and cattle-style empowerment on the rise! Yeah, I know, I'm a cynic. :) But I agree with your assessment, that's the bottom-line. :) FYI, the obesity epidemic is so bad, that they have now begun to test kids in school for cholesterol, while in the next ten years one out of three kids will get obesity-related Type II Diabetes. As a matter of fact, adult-onset Type II Diabetes has begun to appear in obese kids. WW is still considered to be the best diet out there, although the company has really succumbed, due to competition for other "cool" (read novel) competitors, to obese consumer demands to give them all-you-can-eat foods. Since commercial diets are per definition restrictive, and people end up overeating, the cycle of binging and dieting continues. Add to that the fact that health insurance coverage in this country is not optimal, especially when it comes to difficult-to-treat eating disorders that are often not covered at all, and WTW is here to stay and hence a good buy. :)
