In the wake of Corinthian Colleges' (COCO) dissolution due to actions taken by the Department of Education, Wells Fargo thinks the government did not intend for this scenario to unfold. After speaking with unnamed "knowledgeable sources" about the issue, the firm does not expect the department to take similar actions in the future because doing so would create too much of a workload for the department, Wells believes. Publicly traded companies in the space include American Public Education (APEI), Apollo Education (APOL), Bridgepoint Education (BPI), Career Education (CECO), Corinthian Colleges (COCO), DeVry (DV), Grand Canyon (LOPE), ITT Educational (ESI) and Strayer (STRA).

16:54 EDTESIITT Educational says SEC case 'will not withstand judicial scrutiny'
ITT Educational disclosed the following in a filing: "On May 12, a complaint was filed by the SEC against ITT Educational Services and its CEO and CFO in the United States District Court for the Southern District of Indiana under the following caption: United States Securities and Exchange Commission v. ITT Educational Services, Inc., Kevin M. Modany and Daniel M. Fitzpatrick. The complaint relates to the matters addressed in the Wells notice that the company previously received and disclosed. The complaint is a civil enforcement action and alleges that the defendants engaged in a fraudulent scheme and course of business and made various false and misleading statements and omissions to defraud the company’s investors. The company was surprised by this action and disappointed that the Commission allowed this matter to go forward despite fundamental flaws in their case. The SEC does not credit the findings of the Audit Committee investigation that disputed key SEC allegations. The SEC ignored the fact that the very auditors that were allegedly 'misled' stayed on as the company’s auditors, even after being informed of the SEC’s allegations, and later delivered an audit opinion. Nowhere in the complaint is there a citation to a document or email that evidenced any intent to deceive anyone. The company believes that the SEC could not do so because there was no intent to deceive. The company believes there are many other major flaws in the SEC’s case. In essence, the company believes this is little more than a “fraud by hindsight” case that will not withstand judicial scrutiny. The company remains of the belief that any perceived shortcomings related to the complex accounting matters involved were acts taken in good faith and are being mischaracterized by the SEC as deception. Nevertheless, the company takes seriously the SEC action and will vigorously defend itself against the unjustified charges. Moreover, the company’s Board of Directors is heightening its oversight of the process leading up to the filing of the company’s late Form 10-K for 2014. It is expected that the Form 10-K with audited financials will be filed in a matter of weeks, though no assurance can be given that the current estimated timetable will be met."
