With or without valid reason, simply the evaluation is so out of line that value investing retail investor and institutions alike will risk in for a turn around. It is not much related to COCO but the FP education sector issue. When the lawyers are very tired of it, and of course COCO will incur lawyers expenses, some of these issues could last 5 more years, has been 3-4 years already, and get nowhere. Blackrock and Wells Fargo among many 4M shares range investors could be right or wrong, times will tell. What we need is someone more entrepreneur than Jack, figure a way to make it works. Other FP of smaller revenue had made money, why not COCO? We let it slide from $1.6B down to $1.2B now.... other FP are down more or as much, their evaluation is good just because of some small profit. They too are in the bad political climax.
We can not just cut expenses a little at a time, and hang on to it at break even.
Cut deep into marketing, you are not going to get more student having more salesman, I rather see $800M revenue and makes money than $1.2B does not. We need a turn around guy.
Market cap of less than $200M, Revenue $1.2B .... what is wrong? The CEO does not know how to run a business. It is fixable, is Wells Fargo listening, do anything? You owns a lot of it, do something!
I know a lot of campus are on lease, sure still sell them at $0 and get rid of the lease obligation and tax bill and electricity at least. Jack is pity, does not make big move. But that can change!
