2U price target lowered to $80 form $100 at KeyBanc

KeyBanc analyst Monika Garg lowered her price target for 2U to $80 from $100 on lower 2019 EV/sales multiple given program specific factors and lower profitability expectations. The analyst notes the company reported modestly better Q3 results, and raised 2018 guidance accordingly. While 2U provided 2019 revenue guidance in line with expectations, it lowered EBITDA to prioritize investments, she points out, adding that 2U indicated academic leadership changes at two early programs were impacting 2019 DGP growth. Garg reiterated an Overweight rating on the shares.

2U initiated with a Buy at Needham
Needham analyst Ryan MacDonald initiated 2U with a Buy rating and a price target of $80, citing its offering of a "cloud-based software platform" designed to "bring university partners into the digital age via online graduate degree and short course programs". The analyst expects the company to capture additional market share based on the continued strong demand for online programs and the "continued scaling of the short course segment", anticipating a 30% annual revenue growth through FY20. MacDonald further contends that the graduate program segment opportunity is poised for accelerating growth, adding that the 5.5-times enterprise value to expected FY19 sales valuation multiple of 2U is attractive.

2U price target lowered to $76 from $94 at Piper Jaffray
Piper Jaffray analyst Peter Appert lowered his price target for 2U to $76 and keeps a Neutral rating on the shares following the company's Q3 results. Lower near-term EBITDA estimates and limited visibility into the timing of an inflection to free cash flow will likely keep the stock "under wraps near-term," Appert tells investors in a post-earnings research note. The analyst reduced his near-term estimates to reflect the company's higher investment spending.
