What are analysts saying about Strayer Education stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Strayer Education stock:

  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Strayer Education’s first-quarter 2017 earnings were in line with the Zacks Consensus Estimate but down 17.4% year over year. Revenues, however, increased 3.3%, primarily buoyed by higher enrollment which was partly offset by a 4% decline in revenue per student. Tuition cuts and an unfavorable mix of students in lower undergraduate tuition have been resulting in declining revenue per student over the past few quarters. This trend is expected to continue in 2017 as well. Revenue per student is expected to decrease between 1% and 2% in the second quarter of 2017. Operating margin  declined 210 basis points (bps) to 16%. Though the company expects to report double-digit earnings growth owing to improved enrollment trends in the second quarter, we await better visibility." (5/16/2017)
  • 2. BMO Capital Markets analysts commented, "While there were no material new disclosures, our investor meetings provided greater color on the company's strategy and recent operational outperformance. We believe the stock's rally reflects investor optimism re: an improving regulatory environment as well the company's solid enrollment trends. We believe a focus on the core Strayer University and various initiatives should drive long-term sustainable growth for the company. We are raising our target price to reflect the stock's recent 8.1x to 8.8x (EV/EBITDA LTM) multiple expansion as this continues to be one of our favorite postsecondary names." (3/15/2017)
