09:56 EDTSLM, ESIITT Educational continues slide after Citi downgrades stock
Shares of for-profit education company ITT Educational (ESI) are retreating after Citigroup analyst James Samford downgraded the stock to Sell from Neutral in a note to investors earlier today. On January 4, ITT announced that it had reached a $46M settlement with Sallie Mae (SLM) over the latter company's lawsuit related to underperforming loans whose risk the companies had agreed to share. ITT said the deal would reduce its Q4 earnings per share by 56c. ITT has $500M of additional loans that could also perform below the company's estimates, Samford wrote. As a result, the company may have to make more payments related to underperforming loans and take more write-downs, the analyst believes. ITT will be saddled with$15M-$25M in annual charges and cash payments as a result of higher default rates, predicted Samford, adding that the company could report results below analysts' consensus estimates. The analyst slashed his price target on the stock to $13 from $24. Shares of ITT Educational, which have dropped about 24% since the company announced its settlement with Sallie Mae, fell 4.41% to $14.52 in early trading.

14:40 EDTESIITT Educational responds to Rohit Chopra letter
Nicole Elam, vice president of government relations and external affairs for ITT Educational Services, issued the following statement in response to a letter from Rohit Chopra, former student loan ombudsman for the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, to investors dated June 24, 2015: "Putting aside the troubling fact that Mr. Rohit Chopra is attempting to impact investors of a publicly traded company with information he received while in an official capacity at a U.S. governmental agency, his letter is a perfect example of the myopic view pervading some in D.C. regarding taxpaying educational institutions. The fact that he would write such a letter to investors days after leaving the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau trumpeting mere allegations against the company demonstrates a personal bias against our institutions and an unwillingness to allow for due process to work, the cornerstone of the U.S. legal system. Allegations are not facts and we think our investors will not take action based on simple assertions from someone with an ideological axe to grind."
