Its earnings estimates for 2018 and 2019 have remained stable over the past 60 days. The company’s Strayer and Capella segment exhibited stellar enrollment results during the third quarter. The company’s focus on competency-based and non-degree programs helped post higher revenues during the quarter. Also, its affordable and flexible programs encourage students to complete the studies.
