Trading at < 50% of intrinsic value. It has minimal debt (compare to the competition @ Strayer, w/ LTD/EQ of > 2.4) and cash flow is strong. EV/EBITDA is 6.69, pretty cheap for a profitable company.

Oh, insiders are buying as well.

Relatively low student default rates, lots of growth potential online, solid position in industry, unfairly beaten down. Lots to like here.

Significantly under-priced due to overreactions about regulation. Currently priced in the low 30's, and worth every bit of $100/share. This is one of the best managed online educators, and has a wide moat with its focus on graduate degrees. Additionally, this sector has much room to grow as adults slowly realize for-profits can provide better education for less money than traditional schools.

Longshot Capella could skyrocket when those matters are put to rest.

Serious problems with management - very little regard for ethical behavior. Over the past year, the United States Department of Education, Office of the Inspector General found several violations of Federal Law and the University's Financial Aid Director was fired for accepting kickbacks from student-loan industry.

University consistently fails to disclose relevant information such as acceptance and retention rates of students.

We're doing more and more and more online, undoubtedly education is next. I foresee Capella being able to tap into multiple customer segments -- tech savvy people without the time to devote to typical classroom learning for an advanced degree; blue-collar workers who are "down-sized" and lower tax bracket folks who will use it a la a community college, one class/credit at a time as $$ allows.

Solid company. Good business model - not a scam house with shady loans. Corporate reimbursement of education costs makes this a good path for people looking to advance a career in a shaky market.
