Bridgepoint Education Inc. Stock Upgraded (BPI)
- The revenue growth came in higher than the industry average of 4.8%. Since the same quarter one year prior, revenues rose by 15.0%. This growth in revenue does not appear to have trickled down to the company's bottom line, displayed by a decline in earnings per share.
- Compared to its closing price of one year ago, BPI's share price has jumped by 26.99%, exceeding the performance of the broader market during that same time frame. Regarding the stock's future course, although almost any stock can fall in a broad market decline, BPI should continue to move higher despite the fact that it has already enjoyed a very nice gain in the past year.
- The gross profit margin for BRIDGEPOINT EDUCATION INC is rather high; currently it is at 69.40%. Regardless of BPI's high profit margin, it has managed to decrease from the same period last year. Despite the mixed results of the gross profit margin, BPI's net profit margin of 10.30% compares favorably to the industry average.
- The company's current return on equity has slightly decreased from the same quarter one year prior. This implies a minor weakness in the organization. When compared to other companies in the Diversified Consumer Services industry and the overall market, BRIDGEPOINT EDUCATION INC's return on equity exceeds that of the industry average and significantly exceeds that of the S&P 500.
