What is Nutrisystem worth?

The stock is currently trading at $52.6 on the share market, which means it is overvalued by 61% compared to my intrinsic value of $32.58. This means that the opportunity to buy Nutrisystem at a good price has disappeared! Another thing to keep in mind is that Nutrisystem’s share price is quite stable relative to the rest of the market, as indicated by its low beta.
