    I also noticed as part of this accounting maneuver in 2011 we had a major reduction in act rec (150m) and major reduction in equity-retained earnings.???

    regarding your excellent article on STRA--
    i am trying to sort out the significant accounting manuever made in 2011.  apparently stra decided to reclassify accounts receiveable starting in the first quarter ending march 2011.prior to that accounts receiveable occurred upon student registration prior to beginning of the semester.as of 1qtr2011 accounts receivable occured after earned --- at the end of each semester.  payments made prior to completion of semester are classified as unearned income.apparently stra claims that past financial results--eps and other metrics were not effected.sounds suspicious to me in that this change is nicely hidden in a foot note on page 10 of the 10-Q.i could use some help the financial significance of this account change? on the investment attractivness of this firm. John any houghts?

    I was reading your article, I know coach came down in price and was meaning to look into it, It does look interesting, you mention you are going to look into growth and would be interested to know what metric you would use. For myself I can only look at next year and check the growth according to some analyst but for me I take an average of the past growth and go with that because we can only assume the future but I would like to hear you opinion if you wish to share.               

    I will look at your past editorials this one was interesting.

    Thanks t muscat
