2U price target lowered to $70 form $91 at Oppenheimer

Oppenheimer analyst Brian Schwartz lowered his price target for 2U to $70 from $9 saying its reported results have become "squishier." The main issue is around lingering enrollment pressures that now require more spending to boost customer acquisition, he contends. The analyst believes this development will weigh on the margin outlook and supports the bear case. Overall, Schwartz remains long-term positive on the company, since it is still early in the digital learning disruption opportunity in Ed Tech with leadership positioning, but also expects 2U to remain controversial. He reiterates an Outperform rating on the shares.

Neutral
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.

Overweight
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.

Outperform
2U should be bought on post-earnings weakness, says Barrington
Barrington analyst Alexander Paris, Jr. noted that 2U shares were sharply lower in after-market trading after the company's preliminary 2019 earnings guidance came in below consensus expectations due to planned increases in marketing expenses. He lowered his price target on 2U shares to $75 from $100 to account for his lower near-term earnings expectations as well as lower valuation multiples overall, but sees the post-earnings selloff as a buying opportunity and keeps an Outperform rating on the stock.
