  • 1. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We are reiterating our OUTPERFORM investment rating on this market leader. We will re‐evaluate our price target once the company reports second quarter results and we update our earnings model. Also, it should be noted that Strategic Education, Inc. will hold its first Investor and Analyst Day on Washington, D.C." (7/16/2019)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Strategic Education have outperformed its industry year to date on improving enrollment trends, underlying operating leverage and significant merger synergies. Notably, its earnings grew 29.1% on 7.9% revenue growth in the first quarter, given margin expansion at both Strayer and Capella Universities, primarily driven by higher enrollment and effective cost-control measures. Also, earnings estimates have been trending upward, reflecting analysts’ optimism over the stock's earnings growth potential. Continued strength in FlexPath competency-based programs is driving Capella's performance and Strayer is benefiting from healthy demand across its programmatic offerings. However, continuous decline in revenue per student at Strayer due to an unfavorable mix of students is a concern." (7/8/2019)
