Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Grand Canyon Education stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Grand Canyon Education, Inc. is a regionally accredited provider of online postsecondary education services focused on offering graduate and undergraduate degree programs in its core disciplines of education, business, and healthcare. In addition to its online programs, it offers programs at its traditional campus in Phoenix, Arizona and onsite at the facilities of employers. " (2/5/2019)
  • 2. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We believe this deal will be beneficial to long‐term shareholders as it de‐risks LOPE as an investment (as LOPE no longer owns a regulated postsecondary education institution) and positions the new LOPE to trade more in line with other education technology providers. Post transition, LOPE will be a smaller company (60% of GCU’s revenue), higher margin, faster growing (as it adds university partners over time) and significantly less regulated, allowing for potential multiple expansion."
