  • 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 ???
