What are Wall Street analysts saying about Strategic Education stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Strategic Education stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Strategic Education have outperformed the industry year to date. This impressive performance can be primarily attributed to improving enrollment trends, underlying operating leverage and significant cost synergies. Moreover, the company aims at providing convenient, accessible and flexible educational programs that are specifically designed to meet the educational needs of working adults. However, lower revenue per student in Strayer University due to tuition cuts and an unfavorable mix of students toward lower undergraduate tuition is worrisome. Also, seasonal fluctuations and stringent regulations raise concerns. For the current year, estimates have been trending downward over the past 60 days, reflecting analyst’s concern surrounding its earnings growth potential." (10/15/2019)
