    Intelligent thoughts

    I'm not saying my thought are right or wrong, but the whole point of these boards to to share opinions. Not just guess the price of the stock EOY.
    There are some real losers that just post prices every 5 minutes it seams.
    My thinking is that this stock is fairly valued. It is a shrinking company, but still earning lots of money.
    Fine so a PE of 5 is probably appropriate. They don't have a lot of assets. And they have a lot of liabilities. They are shutting down schools and laying off teachers. It is a re-balancing after the government switched sides.

    Personally I think the government should get out of the stimulus program, all they do is pick winners and losers. And it is worse when they pick their winner and then switch their mind. But APOL is no saint. They purposely misled thousands of people.

    They also let in a lot of lazy people, and those people never were going to graduate. When unemployment was high everybody got paid to go to school. Those days are over. APOL will find its new balance of teachers and locations. They will still make 500 million each year. And then they will start to grow organically again.

    If this stock goes to 8 as some have suggested, then I think many Funds would buy it and take it private. It would be a guaranteed 20% return on invest every year.
