What are analysts saying about American Public Education stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about American Public Education stock:
- 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "The affordability of the American Public's courses and programs will benefit the company in the long run owing to high price sensitivity among students. The company has taken up several initiatives to boost its top line. It will continue to improve enrollment trends by strengthening its brand, adding new programs and expanding its strategic relationships. However, American Public's sales and enrollment trends are being hurt by persistent volatility and softness in enrollment by students using Federal aid and military tuition assistance. Shares of the company have also underperformed the industry year to date. Moreover, the company’s second-quarter outlook is discouraging." (10/11/2017)
- 2. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "4Q16 missed consensus estimates mainly due to a revenue shortfall. While management cited persistence improvements, declines in TA and FSA-funded students worsened. While Hondros generated new enrollment growth for the first time since 2Q15, the school faces a number of regulatory risks. We believe new initiatives to stabilize enrollment could help, though will take some time to implement. We reduce our estimates and target price, and expect some pressure on the stock which could attract deep value investors." (3/1/2017)

Consensus Ratings for American Public Education (NASDAQ:APEI) (How are Consensus Ratings Calculated?)
MarketBeat calculates consensus ratings using the most recent rating from each brokerage that has rated a stock within the last twelve months. Since brokers often use different ratings systems, each rating is normalized to a standardized rating score of 1 (sell), 2 (hold), 3 (buy) or 4 (strong buy). Consensus ratings scores are calculated using the mean average of the number of normalized sell, hold, buy and strong buy ratings. Each stock's consensus rating is derived from its calculated consensus ratings score (0-1.5 = Sell, 1.5-2.5 = Hold, 2.5-3.5 = Buy, >3.5 = Strong Buy). MarketBeat's consensus price targets are a mean average of the most recent available price targets set by each analyst that has set a price target for the stock in the last twelve months.
MarketBeat will no longer include ratings and price target data in its consensus calculation if a broker drops coverage and MarketBeat has received a report that coverage was dropped. Ratings from certain research firms that issue ratings using purely quantitative methods (such as Zacks, Vetr and ValuEngine) are not included in consensus calculations. MarketBeat's consensus ratings and consensus price targets may differ from those calculated by other firms due to differences in methodology and available data.
