    Free, not at all. Look closely at the huge short interest,. Shorts dominated share price action for 8 months.
    This is a claw back. Expect a nice run for several more days. I expect at 8.41 , we will see a pull back. But L 2 shows huge buys and excellent volume.
    I sure would rather see decent 30-40% gains before a huge spike, sell off.
    Keep the faith. I am certain we will cross 8 bucks a share this week.

    You are wrong about crossing 8 bucks a share this week.

    What happen to your expectation of $7.50-$8.10?

  • theprincipal49 theprincipal49 Jun 3, 2015 1:28 AM Flag

    It would seem all the professional money managers are against you with the huge short position. If they thought this was cheap they would buy into it and it would be a lot higher. But that isn't the case.
    At the end of April, this was OVER $6 before the 10Q. This is really baffling that people said they couldn't make the deadline for the 10Q so that is a HUGE hangover taken away.

    Corinthian Colleges Inc. Beats Analyst Expectations; COCO, ESI, DV

    Corinthian Colleges Inc. Beats Analyst Expectations; COCO, ESI, DV
    Analysts were expecting Corinthian Colleges Inc. (COCO) [Chart - News - Analysis] to report earnings of $0.40 for last quarter, but COCO beat expectations with actual earnings of $0.44 - 4 cents above the consensus estimate. COCO also issued earnings guidance for next quarter that is above current analyst expectations.

    If you compare last quarter's earnings to the $0.18 the company made per share during the same quarter a year ago, you can see that COCO's earnings are up this year.

    Also, if you compare COCO's 18.34% projected earnings-per-share (EPS) growth rate for the next five years with the projected EPS growth rate of 19.99% for the Education & Training Services industry as a whole during that same time frame, you can see that analysts expect COCO to underperform the industry in the future---which is a bad sign for the stock.

    Drilling down a little deeper into the Education & Training Services industry, you can see how analysts believe COCO will stack up against some of the other stocks in the industry, like ITT Educational Services Inc. (ESI) [Chart - News - Analysis] and DeVry, Inc. (DV) [Chart - News - Analysis], in the future. Analysts believe ESI's earnings are going to grow at a rate of 17.08% while DV's earnings are going to grow at a rate of 20.39%.

    "Approximately 70 percent of our 2013 employable graduates obtained employment in their field of study using knowledge and skills obtained from their programs."
    In the four regrettable years that I was with these con artists, I witnessed the so called " Career Services" department turn over 100% every nine months. I saw paper work that showed placement for a "Criminal Justice" graduate in the field of his degree...He is now a security guard in a building with Lawyers. All this job in his field cost him was $45,000.00.in tuition
    I was fired when I started questioning tactics, Peaks loans, and new curriculums. The new curriculums came about so they wouldn't have to report job placement for 4 years. Curriculum changed every year.
    When you raise tuition every year by 5% who cares if the 10% private loans dictated by the Feds are paid back to the lenders that ITT promised would not lose a nickel.
    Just sayin'...
    No 'm saying a lot more..
    These execs are criminals and lined their pockets on the backs of naïve and desperate people who are/were just trying to better their lives. Enough of this criminal activity...they use "It's about the students" as their mantra...It's a bald face lie and scam. It's time to shut them down.

  • theprincipal49 theprincipal49 Jun 3, 2015 12:32 AM Flag

    It seems all the government regulatory bodies are trying every way they can to shut ESI down.

    ________________________________________________________________________________
    ITT already was operating under the more restrictive conditions on its access to federal money known as heightened cash monitoring, which the Education Department imposed last year after the company failed to file annual financial and compliance audits on time. The company said Friday it anticipated that its “institutions will be subject to [heightened cash monitoring] until at least Nov. 4, 2019.”

    The new monitoring requirements don’t change the heightened cash monitoring status, but they do provide Education Department officials more real-time information about the company’s finances.

    Officials said last year that they were caught off guard when aid restrictions on Corinthian Colleges sent that company into a liquidity crisis. The department has also been criticized for not having the proper systems in place to monitor the finances of large, publicly traded for-profit education companies like ITT.

    ITT also said Friday that regulators in New York and California had suspended their ability to enroll student veterans receiving GI Bill benefits in those states. And the company faces an ongoing legal challenge from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, which has sued ITT over allegations of predatory lending practices.
    Senator #$%$ Durbin, an Illinois Democrat, has criticized ITT in the wake of the SEC's charges (and prior to their filing). Last week he said the company was being hypocritical by complaining that its time in court to defend itself was long overdue, while ITT simultaneously continues to prohibit students from filing suit in court against the company.

    MPHIL909: You don't seem to be aware the at COCO (Corinthian College) has declared bankruptcy about a month ago.......it is no longer traded stock. So, how could you have possibly read their earnings?

    May 9th, 2015
    Over two decades, Corinthian Colleges Inc. grew from a small collection of trade schools into a publicly traded powerhouse with more than 100 campuses and 110,000 students in 2010.

    On Monday, the Santa Ana company filed for bankruptcy, a week after abruptly closing the doors on two dozen remaining campuses and 16,000 students. In its Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, the company listed debts of $143 million and assets totaling $19.2 million — a stunning reversal from five years ago, when Corinthian listed total assets of nearly $1.4 billion.

    The move ends years of troubles for Corinthian, once among the nation's largest for-profit education providers, but the bankruptcy case raises new questions about the company's ongoing legal entanglements with federal and state regulators.

    Just last month, the U.S. Department of Education levied a $30-million fine against Corinthian, alleging that its Heald College system boosted official placement rates by paying temporary employment agencies to hire students for brief stints after graduation. The company faces additional lawsuits alleging fraudulent marketing and financial practices, including cases filed by the U.S. Consumer Financial Protection Bureau and California Atty. Gen. Kamala D. Harris.

  • MPHIL909: How could you possibly have read COCO (Corinthian College) earnings if it is already in bankruptcy and no longer trades? You appear to have read or misrepresented an article that appeared in 2009 and quoted as if it is today!!!!!!!!

    Dude, COCO (corinthian college) went bankrupt. How can it have earnings today? You read an article from 2009 and you thought it was for today!!!!! God help us with idiots like you that give this a reason for buying.

  • theprincipal49 theprincipal49 Jun 2, 2015 7:32 PM Flag

    Why do shorts need to cover? For what reason? They didn't cover at $6-10 from January through April and it paid off as it fell to $2.50. Even now, the price is below $6 just at the end of April.

  • theprincipal49 theprincipal49 Jun 2, 2015 7:01 PM Flag

    You make a very general statement, "Overall, ESI shares are going to trade much higher in the future as the business is much more solid than the shorts would like everyone to believe and the valuation is so amazing that a triple from here wouldn't even get ESI close to fair value. "

    Can you prove your statement or give evidence why they are solid? When it doesn't appear that way.

    If it is this article you are quoting from Career College Central, it is a reprint of a 2009 Barron's article:

    This is a company that squarely meets the 3 points of investment: growth potential, competitive positioning, and financial strength. Growth will not be a problem over the near to mid-term. Over the next couple of years, higher enrollments due to high unemployment will boost margins. ITT continues to expand by opening new centers (6-8 a year), adding new programs (over 250 in 2009), and increasing tuition along with public schools (3-5% a year). The company has also shown a desire to growth through acquisition, such as the Daniel Webster purchase. Analysts forecast 17% annual profit growth over the next 5 years - quite healthy. I think it could do better than that.
