What are Wall Street analysts saying about 2U stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about 2U stock:
  • 1. Barrington Research analysts commented, "We view this premium as warranted given that 2U’s projected growth rate is much higher at 40%/32% in 2018/2019, compared to an average of 18%/20% for the Ed Tech peer group and 15%/14% for the vertical‐focused SaaS peer group. We are reiterating our OUTPERFORM investment rating and raising our 12‐month price target to $92 (from $80), which assumes a 8.7x multiple on our forward revenue estimate a year from now." (2/27/2018)
  • 2. According to Zacks Investment Research, "2U, Inc. is an education technology company. It is a provider of cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions that enables nonprofit colleges and universities to deliver their education to students anywhere. The Company offers graduate and undergraduate degree programs in social work, science, public administration, healthcare, laws, education, and business administration. It also offers a suite of technology-enabled services including content development, student acquisition, and state authorization services, as well as application advising, student and faculty support, and in-program student field placements. 2U, Inc. is based in Landover, Maryland. " (1/31/2018)
  • 3. Robert W. Baird analysts commented, "Nutanix is one of our top 2018 picks, given our bullish belief that investors underappreciate its shift to a software model. We believe the shift will (1) lessen sales friction with OEM and channel partners, (2) expand Nutanix’s opportunities in hybrid- cloud deployments and with subscription services (first with Xi), and (3) deliver faster than expected gross margin expansion. While investor expectations and valuation already reflect a positive shift for the software transition, we believe confidence will grow and multiples will expand further as results over the next quarters confirm a quick exit from hardware (targeted 2/3 by end of FY18) and a big shift to software-heavy product gross margins (we believe eventually >80%). Reiterate Outperform and raise price target to $43 from $40." (1/9/2018)
