DeVry (DV - Get Report)

Year-to-Date Share Price Percentage Loss: -22.47%

Market Capitalization: $3.16 Billion

Based on year-to-date returns, DeVry fared toward the middle of the pack in 2010. The school operator took advantage of the recent pressure on its stock price, using cash reserves of $32.3 million, $43.7 million and $17.4 million during fiscal 2008, 2009 and 2010, respectively, for share buybacks and payment of dividends.

DeVry said in late October that it earned $74 million , or $1.03 per share, in its 2011 fiscal first quarter. Revenue came in at $521 million. Both top- and bottom-line results beat expectations.

>>DeVry Bids Up on Earnings Beat

DeVry did not offer specific earnings guidance but warned that it expects fewer students to enroll in its undergraduate programs at DeVry University, echoing similar cautionary statements from Capella Education (CPLA), Apollo Group and ITT Educational Services. "DeVry University expects to report a modest decline in new undergraduate student enrollments and growth in the mid-teens for total students," the company said.

Wall Street's consensus call is for current quarter EPS of $1.19 on revenue of $549.5 million. Full-year EPS is expected to come in at $4.52 with annual revenue of $2.21 billion.

The Education Trust said DeVry's six-year graduation rate was 31%. The Institute for College Access and Success reported that its students averaged loan repayment rates of 40% last year.

DeVry is the parent organization of Advanced Academics, Becker Professional Education, Carrington College and Carrington College California, Chamberlain College of Nursing, DeVry Brasil, DeVry University and Ross University.
