California AG sues Ashford, Bridgepoint over allegedly misleading students

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra announced that he is suing Ashford University, an online for-profit school based in San Diego, and its parent company Bridgepoint Education for engaging in unlawful business practices. In the lawsuit, Attorney General Becerra alleges that Ashford made false promises and furnished faulty information to students to persuade them to enroll. It also used illegal debt collection practices when students struggled to pay their bills. Attorney General Becerra seeks restitution for students, a permanent injunction prohibiting similar activities in the future, and civil penalties from Ashford University. "No school should ever steal the American Dream from its students, but that is exactly what Ashford University did," said Attorney General Becerra. "Ashford University preyed on veterans and people of modest means. This for-profit college illegally misled students about their educational prospects and unfairly saddled them with debt. In today's economy, college is too pivotal and precious to let a predatory for-profit company swindle our daughters and sons out of the higher education they'll need to get ahead." Reference Link

Bridgepoint Education price target raised to $14 from $9 at Barrington
Barrington analyst Alexander Paris raised his price target on Bridgepoint Education shares to $14 from $9 as he believes a higher multiple is appropriate for the stock, and the for-profit education group, given the less hostile regulatory environment likely under incoming President Trump and his administration.

Bridgepoint share buyback reflects management confidence, says Barrington
After Bridgepoint Education agreed to buy back about 18M shares from private equity investor Warburg Pincus for $150M Barrington analyst Alexander Paris said "the only surprise" from his perspective is that the deal came sooner than expected. Also, he believes the deal suggest company management and the board are comfortable with regulatory risk and the direction of the business. Paris keeps an Outperform rating and $14 price target on Bridgepoint shares.

Bridgepoint Education secondary ends Warburg Pincus overhang, says Barrington
Barrington analyst Alexander Paris said Bridgepoint Education's repurchase of 2.1M shares from Warburg Pincus, in combination with the 5.5M shares sold by the firm to the public, eliminates the Warburg "overhang" on the stock while the buyback is also highly accretive to Bridgepoint EPS. The analyst, who raised his earnings estimates to reflect the repurchases, also thinks the deal suggests management and the board are comfortable with the fundamental direction of the business. Paris reiterates an Outperform rating and $17 price target on Bridgepoint.
