Operating margin decreased 290 basis points. New enrollment for Capella University was down 1% from the fourth quarter of 2015, primarily due to persistent volatility. Also, Capella’s shares lost over 11% in the last three months, underperforming the Zacks categorized Schools industry. Though Capella’s investments on innovation, academic infrastructure and new business models are likely to drive outcome, we await better visibility." (2/17/2017)
Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We know that Capella tuition is selectively discounted, though the company does not disclose specifics. Completion rate data applies only to first-time, full-time students. This data is therefore less helpful in evaluating Capella students, who often transfer credits from other schools they may have previously attended. The satisfaction data is not gathered in a scientific or systematic manner and is open to abuse similar to a Yelp review, in our view." (10/4/2016)
