Strayer Education Inc (STRA): Three Education Stocks Poised For a Turnaround

Similar to ITT Educational Services, Inc. (NYSE:ESI), Strayer Education Inc (NASDAQ:STRA) is repurchasing shares aggressively. This makes good use of the company’s excess cash as the underlying business is still cash-flow positive.

As the employment market continues to improve and enrollment levels  rebound, Strayer Education Inc (NASDAQ:STRA) is in a great spot to boost profits ahead of expectations, which will attract the attention of institutional as well as individual investors.

The time to act is now!
With for-profit education stocks trading at historically low price points, and the overall sector showing significant improvement, now is the time to add these stocks to your portfolio.

As investors start to put the pieces of the puzzle together (stronger employment, stable student loans, the need for higher education, higher profit potential for these companies), the stock prices should trade sharply higher.

We want to make sure to put our capital to work today, before valuations increase and the potential return rates are diminished.
