14:45 EDTBPIFor-profit education names slip after Wells says search data negative
Shares of a number of for-profit education companies are falling after Wells Fargo wrote that Google search trends do not bode well for the sector. WHAT'S NEW: Google search trends for the fourth quarter indicate that students' interest in for-profit education companies probably did not increase significantly during that period, Wells Fargo analyst Trace Urdan wrote in a note to investors today. The data indicates that new student enrollment at the schools could even come in below already pessimistic expectations, Urdan reported. The analyst found that searches for terms related to for-profit schools dropped in Q4, versus the same period a year earlier. Moreover, there were many more searches in Q4 for non-profit schools than for-profit colleges, Urdan stated. Sentiment towards for-profit education names is already "quite weak" after President Obama on January 9 proposed allowing all Americans to attend community college at no cost and Apollo Education (APOL) on January 8 provided lower than expected Q2 revenue guidance, Urdan stated. As a result, investors may already be expecting schools in the sector to report weak enrollment data, Urdan believes. However, the search data for Strayer (STRA) is "more negative than positive," even though expectations for the company appear to be elevated, the analyst reported. On a positive note, search results for Capella Education (CPLA), Grand Canyon (LOPE), and DeVry's (DV) Chamberlain looked better than average, Urdan reported, adding that investors' expectations towards those names are relatively upbeat. PRICE ACTION: In mid-afternoon trading, Strayer fell 1% to $68, ITT Educational fell 3.6% to $8.37, Bridgepoint Educational (BPI) tumbled 4.5% to $10.10, American Public (APEI) slid 2.25% to $33.89, and Grand Canyon gave back 2% to $43.

10:06 EDTUALUnited Continental sees special charges of $226M in Q4
The company said in a filing that it expects to record special charges of $226M, or $232M before income taxes, for Q4. he company recorded $141M of costs related primarily to a voluntary early-out program for its flight attendants. More than 2,500 participants elected a one-time opportunity to voluntarily separate from the company and will receive a severance payment, with a maximum value of $100,000 per participant, based on years of service, with retirement dates from Nov. 30, 2014 through the end of 2015. The company will record additional expense associated with this program through 2015 over the remaining required service periods. The company recorded a charge of $16M related to its annual assessment of impairment of its indefinite-lived intangible assets. On Oct. 10, 2014, United used cash to retire, at par, the entire $248M principal balance of the 6% Convertible Junior Subordinated Debentures and the 6% Convertible Preferred Securities, Term Income Deferrable Equity Securities. The $53M expense is primarily associated with the write off of non-cash debt discounts recorded on the TIDES due to purchase accounting during the merger with Continental Airlines in 2010.
