Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Strayer Education stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Strayer outperformed its industry so far this year. Earnings estimates for 2018 and 2019 have remained unchanged in the past 30 days. The company’s convenient, accessible and flexible educational programs are designed to meet the educational needs of working adults. Strayer University is lowering the cost of programs to enhance their affordability. Importantly, Strayer and Capella decided to merge in an all-stock deal of equal transactions, expected to close in the third quarter of 2018. Post completion, Strayer’s shareholders will own approximately 52% of the combined company. The merger is expected to ensure student success, positive employment outcomes and be accretive to Strayer’s earnings by 20-25% by 2019. However, tuition cuts and an unfavorable mix of students toward lower undergraduate tuition have resulted in declining revenue per student over the past few quarters." (7/30/2018)

EBITDA of $4.4 million, and operating EPS of $0.10 compared to our expectations of net revenues of $12.5 million, Adj. EBITDA of $4.5 million, and operating EPS of $0.06. The company reported a fleet-wide time-charter equivalent (TCE) rate of $9,083 per vessel/day during 4Q17, up ~19% vs. 4Q16 and above our forecast of $8,935.
