NutriSystem's earnings per share increased 36% to 30 cents versus 22 cents for the year ago quarter, beating the Capital IQ consensus estimate of 27 cents per share. 

Revenue also increased 14% to $111.1 million, compared to $97.5 million for the comparable 2013 second quarter, slightly higher than the consensus estimate of $110.52 million. 

Shares of NutriSystem are lower by -5.80% to $16.90 in after-hours trading on Tuesday. 

Separately, TheStreet Ratings team rates NUTRISYSTEM INC as a Hold with a ratings score of C. TheStreet Ratings Team has this to say about their recommendation:

"We rate NUTRISYSTEM INC (NTRI) a HOLD. The primary factors that have impacted our rating are mixed some indicating strength, some showing weaknesses, with little evidence to justify the expectation of either a positive or negative performance for this stock relative to most other stocks. The company's strengths can be seen in multiple areas, such as its revenue growth, solid stock price performance and impressive record of earnings per share growth. However, as a counter to these strengths, we find that we feel that the company's cash flow from its operations has been weak overall."
