Capella Education Company (CPLA) Continues to Perform

Capella Education through its subsidiary Capella University has performed well over the past year rising from $50.34 a share to a recent 52-week high of $86.06. The provider of post-secondary education recently beat it’s fourth quarter earnings expectations and has seen it’s first quarter expectations increase steadily from 64 cents a share to 78 cents over the quarter.

The company will report its first quarter results on April 27th and could continue to move higher if expectations improve again. Revenue for the quarter as compared to last year is improving 29% according to analysts. With early revenue increasing 26%. The quarterly earnings are even more optimistic than the revenue numbers with an increase for the first quarter being 59% better than the same quarter last year.

An end-of-the-day price to earnings ratio (P/E) of 25.29 is low when compared to the quarterly growth but on par at a PEG ratio of 1.02 when compared to a 5 year estimated growth rate of 24.88%. The recent run has been quite steep so selling part of a trade at this time is a better ideal than adding to a position. Wait for a decline in the price weeks before the earnings to resume purchasing shares.
