A silver lining

Rumors of University of Phoenix layoffs have helped the stock move up the last two days. Peter Sperling can really use the money.

Bullet points of Seeking Alpha article on APOL

Summary APOL management has to go - too much time has been wasted and zero progress has been shown under this regime. APOL continues to be a horrible story with zero hope on the horizon - this company's chances at long-term viability are shrinking by the quarter. APOL's saving grace right now is ... read more

University of Phoenix Bankruptcy

How likely is this? Given the state of the for-profit sector, are we heading in a Bankruptcy direction just like Corinthian, etc.

To those that recently went through a layoff at UoPX: what kind of severance did they give you?

Just wondering what kind of severance package they are doing now? Last year they gave nothing to a ground campus layoff and there was so much vandalism from the disgruntled ex-employees that they ended up costing the company way more than a severance would have so they went back to giving a ... read more

Once again enrollment is getting hit with lay offs - rather walk-outs. 3 managers and a whole team walked out today at one of the online Phoenix buildings. Leadership (Directors) really need to figure out that "top heavy" doesn't mean entry level employees or managers . . . . Psst, here is a hint . ... read more

Just look at to see inside trade activity for APOL...

Usually there are lists of "automatic" sales listed. But over the last several months, it appears that your executives have been directly selling off their stocks. This past year I've been watching them dump millions worth just before quarterly results are released. I saw an article on this very ... read more

You cannot legally be located from your posts?

Some anonymous poster claims that if you post here, your location can be viewed by anyone. This does not appear to be true. So is the anonymous poster (quite possibly management) BS'ing to squelch dissent, or is that person illegally hacking?.........
