Westport Asset Management Comments on DeVry Education Group Inc. - Apr 16, 2014

FPA Capital Comments on DeVry - Jul 29, 2013

Another stock that has performed well this year is DeVry (DV). DeVry, which appreciated more than 31%, is a For-Profit education company that was established over eighty years ago. Today, most people think of DeVry as a company that offers IT and Accounting degrees. This is true but DV also has a large medical school, a nursing school, a CPA test-preparation business, and a Brazilian operation that includes a couple of schools. DV's medical school, Ross University, produces more medical residents for U.S. hospitals than any medical school in the U.S. The company's Becker Professional Education division is synonymous with CPA review programs. Its Chamberlain College of Nursing is growing to meet the inexorable demand for nurses in the U.S. These latter schools, along with the company's Brazilian schools, are doing very well.

John Rogers Comments on DeVry Inc - Oct 25, 2012

Also, forprofit education company DeVry Inc. (DV) dropped –26.51% after materially lowering quarterly earnings guidance in late July. Specifically, the company guided revenue below Wall Street's expectations and forecast earnings per share to the $0.43 to $0.46 range—far below the consensus $0.78 that was in place at the time. Two weeks later the company reported earnings in line with the new forecast. During its official report, the company announced a new plan to improve performance quickly. The three-pronged plan included right-sizing its cost structure, re-establishing enrollment growth and investing toward future growth. To be candid, we were surprised by how abruptly the business downshifted but believe the gameplan to turn things around is a good one. We are patient, long-term investors who understand there will be bumps in the road in this controversial industry but similarly recognize its demographic and structural strengths.

From Ariel Funds' third quarter commentary.

Baron Funds Comments on DeVry Inc. - May 24, 2012

The stock price of DeVry, Inc. (DV), a provider of diversified postsecondary education emphasizing business, technology and healthcare, declined 11.9% after reporting that it missed both top- and bottom-line estimates in the fourth quarter. DeVry also lowered 2012 guidance, and now anticipates an earnings decline year over year. DeVry's enrollment softened, due to continued economic weakness and disruptions sustained as it adapts to regulatory changes. Long term, we remain positive on DeVry given its solid history of graduate placement and its focus on areas that should experience sustainable job creation. (Susan Robbins)
