BMO Capital analyst Jeffrey Silber raised the firm's price target on American Public Education to $38 from $33 but keeps a Market Perform rating on the shares. The company's "sizable" earnings, margins, and revenue beats were driven by "very strong" and largely organic new enrollment trends, reflecting the recent grants to military students and increased online demand, the analyst tells investors in a research note. Silber adds however that while the tailwinds are projected to continue in Q3, American Public Education is too exposed to the "volatile" military tuition funding levels while also facing competitive pressure in the online education space.

Last week, University of Arizona announced plans to acquire a for-profit online college called Ashford University, The New York Times' Kevin Carey writes. The transaction details reveal a something more complicated than just an acquisition as it looks more like a long-term partnership, the report notes. The current owner of Ashford University is a publicly traded corporation called Zovio, the author points out, adding that while the company recently acquired a few small start-up firms, Ashford is Zovio's only major business and they are essentially one and the same. The publication highlights that Zovio is also entering into a 15-year contract with the University of Arizona Global Campus to provide recruiting, marketing, information technology, instructional design and other services.

Reports Q2 revenue $82.1M, consensus $77.87M. Net course registrations by new students at APUS increased 30% year-over-year. Total net course registrations increased 18% year-over-year to 89,600. New student enrollment at HCN increased 56% year-over-year and total student enrollment increased 14% year-over-year to 1,750. CEO Angela Selden said, "Our institutions were built on the belief that quality education should be accessible to all, not reserved for the few, and this is especially true during this period of great disruption in our economy and in higher education. The growth in enrollments in Q2 as compared to a year ago reflects the ongoing transformation that has been taking place at APEI over the past year. At HCN, we have improved curriculum and made pre-licensure degrees more readily available to individuals interested in the nursing field. At APUS, students looking to improve their future career prospects chose APUS for its affordability and high-quality academic programs. Moving forward, we will continue to emphasize helping more adult learners maximize their higher education return on investment with highly relevant programs of study at affordable prices," added Selden. "We believe this approach, combined with the investments we are making in our business operations and in our ongoing technology transformation, will further strengthen our ability to serve learners of all backgrounds with great distinction."

Barrington analyst Alexander Paris raised the firm's price target on Rosetta Stone to $30 from $22 and keeps an Outperform rating on the shares after its better than expected results and raised 2020 guidance. While the stock has nearly tripled since its March lows on speculation that it is considering a sale of all or part of its business, its current 3.2-times expected 2020 revenue multiple is still a discount relative to the 6.5-times of the Ed Tech peer group multiple, the analyst tells investors in a research note.

"As we focus on the acceleration of our digital first, connected strategy, we are partnering with and supporting customers nationwide in this unique back to school season, whether in person, fully remote or hybrid." CFO Joe Abbott added, "We managed our expenses with discipline, and as a result, were able to deliver adjusted EBITDA margins on par with the prior year despite net sales and billings declines.
