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 revenue per student continue to decline in the second quarter as well, falling 1.8% from the prior-year quarter. Revenue per student is likely to decline between 1% and 2% in the next quarter as well. Tuition cuts and an unfavorable mix of students toward lower undergraduate tuition resulted in deteriorating revenue per student over the past few quarters. This trend is expected to persist in 2017. Notably, Strayer Education’s second-quarter earnings surpassed analysts' expectation by 4.5%. Also, earnings increased 28% year over year. Revenues increased 4% primarily buoyed by higher enrollment, which was partly offset by lower revenues per student. Total enrollment at Strayer University increased 6% to 43,411 students from 41,029 in the prior-year quarter. New student enrollments rose 8% and continuing student enrollments increased 5%." (7/28/2017)
  • 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)
