Tale of the Tape

ITT Educational Services Inc. (ESI - Snapshot Report) saw a big move last session, as the company’s shares fell by over 46% on the day. The move came on pretty good volume too with far more shares changing hands than in a normal session. This continues the recent downtrend for ESI, as the stock is now down 53.9% in the past one-month time frame.

ITT Educational Services has seen a mixed track record when it comes to current year estimate revisions over the past few weeks (no increase, no decreases), and the consensus for earnings hasn’t been in a trend either. This recent price action is discouraging, so make sure to keep a close watch of this firm in the near future, and especially on earnings estimates following the recent slump.
 
ESI currently has a Zacks Rank #5 (Strong Sell) while its Earnings ESP is 0.00%.

Some better-ranked stocks in the education and training services sector include Capella Education Co. (CPLA), DeVry Education Group Inc. (DV) and GP Strategies Corp. (GPX). All these stocks hold a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy).
