Accreditation scares, lawsuits, and a close shave with the "90/10" federal financial aid rule are enough to make me confident that COCO is going to fail. Abysmal graduation rates (~30%) will also hurt this company in the long run.

Regulatory clouds will clear. Government cannot afford to be implementing regulations that hurt business at this time in our economy.

The whole industry took a beating at the threat of increased government regulation of for-profit medical schools. Bipartisan control of Congress has ensured that such legislation will not be produced, and that actions taken by the DOE will not be significant. Also, the Company just hired (read, bribed) a former DOE regulator to work for the company (read, stall or stifle government infringement).

- selling at 40% discount to book value, trailing PE of 2.9 !!!!
- solid history of earnings and revenue growth
- should withstand changes brought about by government crackdown on for-profit institutions with maybe 25% hit to profitability and then revert to more normal PE.

NB. Found using Valueline service

Background: For-profit schools were doing a bit of predatory recruiting of students and approving students for money when they had no chance in paying it back etc. So now they are under the regulatory interrogation light by the government. Hence a stock dive worthy of the Italian national football team.

I think that regulation will help an industry like this and that they are in a good position to make money off of providing a service that tons of recently unemployed (or English Lit/Theology grads like me!) need in order to like, find jobs. Value play (the only kind!)

Check out http://batting450.wordpress.com/2010/12/12/caps-pick-corinthian-colleges-coco/ and look for me to do some due diligence on their numbers (ie: the legwork) later.

I said this summer, "I expect this one to be chopped into little pieces and sold off in a garage sale", and I still expect that to be the case eventually.
Too many players in this sector, one needs to go.

COCO is an enormous, successful, profitable, educational organization that is facing some regulatory problems that could reduce it's profit margins but it has been devalued as though it were going out of business.

With a 2.5 PE and a 30% growth rate, this is another Tata which went from 3 to 29. It will get bought out but is a 15-20 stock easily.

1. David Einhorn closeed his short on coco
2. insiders across the board are buying.
3. The rule (not yet final) is slated to go into effect in mid 2012, there is a long time buffer for coco to adjust. (A preliminary rule says programs at for-profit schools could lose their eligibility for student loan funding if 65 percent of students default or are shown to be unable to pay their loans.)
