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, "Although shares of Strategic Education have outperformed its industry so far this year, its earnings estimates for 2018 and 2019 have also moved south in the past 30 days, limiting upside potential for the stock. Continuous decline in revenue per student due to tuition cuts and an unfavorable mix of students toward lower undergraduate tuition are causes of concern. Along with that, company is exposed to seasonal fluctuations and rising government interference which is likely to hamper company’s performance in near terms. However, on Aug 1, the company announced that Strayer Education, Inc. and Capella Education Company have completed the proposed merger deal to create SEI, a national leader in education innovation. The merger is expected to ensure student success, positive employment outcomes and be accretive to the company’s earnings." (10/16/2018)
