  • With traditional research universities like ASU is offering valuable degrees ... the journey and destiny of online universities like UoP is is most probably only one way ... shrinking revenues ... closing business-units/university-campuses and aggressive cost cutting .. all the way down ...

    Cost cutting makes enhancements to course materials and timely updates to the competitiveness of courses could quite naturally be moved to back burner ...

    APOL is closing business-units/university-campuses and stating the cost of such closures as one time activity that are not part of cost of doing business ... but they have been continuing the closure of business-units/university-campuses from quarter to quarter to beat EPS projection even when revenue is steadily declining ...

    Many traditional research universities like ASU is offering valuable degrees almost at the same cost as degrees from UoP and the value of degrees from UoP could easily be guessed ...

    The chances of UoP graduate having any chance of getting a job when competing with an ASuOnline.ASu.edu graduate could easily be guessed ...

    ITT Technical institute that made their name in blue collar certificate courses joined the Online Education bubble has a P/E of 10.01 with their PPS being $41.90 and their earnings being $4.15/share ... APOL EPS is $2.1/share ... even with ESI valuation P/E of 10.1 APOL less than $21.3/share ...

    ESI is worth $29.5/share based on a P/E of 10 and its 2014 EPS of $2.95 where ESI would end up by QQ1 of 2014 ...

    Based on ESI valuation would APOL would end up near $17.5 based on their 2014 EPS of $1.75 ... probably about $9/share for 2015 and about $5/share for 2016 ???

  • Have you noticed how quickly after executing the $0 cost options the insider are dumping the stock ...


    Is that showing any confidence they have in the sustainability of the stock price ... or


    Does the quick dumping of option exercised stock show how scared LNKD management is about the easy entry of FB into hiring business ... and probably about how easy it would be for MMW and/or DHX to launch a super featured social-media front-end to their service ...


    After all the revenue of MMW and LNKD are about the same .. but LNKD market cap is 1500% higher thatn than of MWW

  • Oops ... Q2 earnings is just out and is LNKD ESP for the year 2012 and 2013 already down http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ae?s=lnkd&ql=1


    That too right after below financial scare from Q2?

    By October 2013 LNKD could be trading in the same range as MWW & DMX which have real good presence in placement services ... especially after FaceBook steals the social-media professional/placement thunder away from LNKD ...

    Expect FB to make a major announce in social-media professional/placement in the next couple of months before their insider lockup expires ... which cold suck the life out of LNKD ...


    LNKD longs might be better off selling their LNKD share and probably going short before hedge funds finish waiting for enough bag-holders/suckers to be in place to start their LNKD shorting rampage ...

    Is it worth hanging on to GLUU with P/E of -56.00 and PEG ratio of -1.73 http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ae?s=gluu&ql=1


    Isn't it wise to sell GLUU and buy SANM with P/E of 5.96 and PEG ratio of 0.4 http://finance.yahoo.com/q/ae?s=SANM&ql=1

  • India Gold consumption dropped by 29% by an import tax that has now been cancelled and a strike by Gold merchants against that tax as it was introduced.


    For 10s of thousands of years India has been the biggest consumer of Gold and their demand could only increase and as the Gold market in India picks up from the after strike phase their consumption for this month and quarter could be a record high ...
