What are analysts saying about 2U stock?
Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about 2U stock:
- Needham & Company LLC analysts commented, "2U reported slight 4Q16 upside. FY17 revenue growth guidance was in-line and EBITDA guidance was slightly above expectations, but we believe guidance could prove conservative as 2U leverages its marketing expertise to fill the 2016 launch programs. We are also encouraged that the 2017 launch schedule has been completed as 2U can now focus on signing and slotting the 12 or more programs for 2018. With 6 of the 10 2017 programs Multi-Program Verticals (MPVs), we expect a faster enrollment ramp and path to profitability compared to the 2016 programs. LTR to TCA remains steady at 3.2x highlighting the importance of MPVs and marketing improvements. We believe 2U's strategy is working as its 4 initial programs reached an adjusted EBITDA margin of 36%, above plan and its remaining launch cohorts are above or tracking to plan." (2/24/2017)

Credit Suisse Group analysts commented, "We expect another solid quarter with revenue in line with or above CS/Street ests. of $50.1M (+20.5% yr/yr)/$50.3M (+20.9%) vs. guidance of $49.6- 50.6M (+19.2-21.6%), which includes ~$750K of revenue from the BridgeFront acquisition; we model Q2 on-demand revenue of $36.4M (+34.0% yr/yr, +31.2% organic). We expect CALD to report Q2 normalized (for multi-year billings, if any) on-demand billings growth at least in line with CS of +25.0% yr/yr ($38.5M), driven by: (1) our expectations for higher attach rates from sales of CALD’s best-of-breed SEM / SPM product suites; (2) continued market share gains against competitive point solutions; (3) further traction selling into enterprises in the fast-growing SPM market; and (4) increased cloud-conversions resulting from management’s announcement to end-of-life the on-premise commission product by June 2017. Further, we do not expect much upside to CS/Street EPS est. of $0.05 and guidance of $0.04-$0.06 as management continues to invest in R&D and S&M, which we believe could support a >+30% on-demand revenue growth CAGR through 2017, while simultaneously increasing profits."
