Bright Scholar sinks after China proposes change to private education rules

Shares of Chinese tutoring stocks are moving lower after China's Ministry of Justice posted a draft amendment to the country's private education rules. The agency is seeking feedback before September 10. A clause added in the draft bans companies from controlling non-profit private schools through mergers and acquisitions, Bloomberg reports, citing Terry Li, an analyst with Phillip Capital. Shares of Bright Scholar Education (BEDU) are down 23% to $11.26 in morning trading. Also trading lower shares of New Oriental Education (EDU), Rise Education (REDU), RYB Education (RYB) and TAL Education (TAL). Reference Link

Morgan Stanley shakes up China Education ratings, ups Bright Scholar, cuts TAL
As previously reported, Morgan Stanley analyst Sheng Zhong upgraded Bright Scholar (BEDU) to Overweight from Equal Weight and downgraded TAL Education (TAL) to Equal Weight from Overweight, telling investors in a note on the China Education sector that she now prefer stocks with a balanced growth outlook and valuation given China's regulatory and operational uncertainties. The analyst, who still prefers companies focused on after-school tutoring, called Rise Education (REDU) and New Oriental Education (EDU) her top picks in the space. Zhong also downgraded Four Seasons Education (FEDU) to Equal Weight and cut her rating on OneSmart Education (ONE) to Equal Weight from Overweight.

Jefferies keeps Buy rating on TAL, says fraud claims are serious
While Muddy Waters' report did not relate to TAL Education's (TAL) core businesses, the fraud claims are serious nonetheless and would cast concerns over the company's integrity should management be unable to provide a satisfactory explanation, Jefferies analyst Johnny Kin Man Wong tells investors in a research note. The analyst expects share price volatility and notes that New Oriental Education's (EDU) stock price fell from $22.26 to $9.47, or 57.5%, over the course of two days when similar short reports arose in July 2012. Wong has a Buy rating on TAL Education with a $42.50 price target.

Muddy Waters claims TAL Education is misleading investors about Peiyou business
Muddy Waters states: "TAL's core Peiyou business appears to be in decline. We believe that Peiyou offline Q3 revenue YoY growth was likely negative, despite TAL CFO Rong Luo stating the growth rate was "healthy" and implying it was in line with small class revenue growth of 52.4%. We also suspect that Peiyou online is not doing well. Peiyou online Q4 sequential growth seems to have been at best high single digit, and quite possibly negative."
