    ditched FFELP and SLM held an ugly portfolio of
    private defaulted loans.. many were ITT career training loans. SLM went from $58 to 4... and ITT... from $130 to ...$2x...????

    • Comparing SLM to ESI is marginal at best. SLM is a lender. eSI runs an education business. Your claim that SLM got stuck with large amount of bad loans to ESI students is completely unsupported blather. If such is that case, then provide the numbers.

      SLM shares got bulled up to ridiculous levels for a company that was simply a lender. Lone Pine was a huge shareholder and everyone was just copying their long trade. When SLM ended up having problems, it was in 2007. From 2007 to 2011, ESI earning rose from $3.77 per share to $11.22 per share.

      • Response>> In 2008 SLM quit funding ITT's College Advantage loan program>>>> Jan. 23, 2008: In a conference call with investors on the company's final 2007 financial results, Sallie Mae officials revealed that their provision for loan losses that year ultimately amounted to about $1 billion, an increase of 242 percent from the previous year. They also announced that they would no longer be making new sub-prime loans to financially needy students at some of the country's largest proprietary schools.....AT THE TIME, ITT WAS SLM's largest customer....
