K12 (LRN) Regains Footing After Massive Sell-off

K12 (LRN)), a technology-based education provider,is now involved in multiple class action lawsuits alleging that the company lied about its student success rates, parent satisfaction, class size, graduates’ eligibility for the University of California and California State University, among other modes of data that was used in press releases and advertisements.

The class action lawsuits stem from a San Jose Mercury News investigation from April this year that looked to expose K12 as a fraudulent moneymaking enterprise that fabricated a wide variety of claims (summarized above).The investigation aimed to demonstrate how K12, a Virginia-based company, took advantage of California education law that have no specific rule about for-profit firms running charter schools in the state. Initially, K12 established online schools with individual, separate names so that the school and the corporation seemed unlinked for tax-exempt purposes because Federal Tax Laws prohibit charitable organizations from working to benefit a company. However, the report alleges that K12 employees started online schools posing as a “group of parents.” The company tried later to open a brick and mortar school in Contra Costa County, but was denied on the grounds that the Virginia administrative entity would be running day-today decision making. In addition, the report found that teachers lied about attendance to keep taxpayer dollars coming, very few online students earned diplomas, the company has reaped $312 million in profits over the last twelve years, schools that oversee the online academies get a cut of revenues and are inclined to turn the other way when they see inaccuracies, and many students test well-below state standards in reading and math.

Now, that being said, the company has rallied since April and many analysts were buying the stock to capitalize on the lower cost. In its most recent press release this Tuesday, the company saw earnings per share fall and revenues slumped by 9%. Following that, the stock was sliding but rallied again this morning. During the same press release, the company also said that they have settled with the Attorney General of California and no wrongdoing was admitted. The company logged a $7.1 million settlement for 4Q as a net charge that will go to taxpayers and government expenses accrued in the probe. The volatility of LRN is well documented and many buyers will stay away as more lawsuits are coming, but the truth is that the company is still enrolling students in public school areas and at-home.

Trading Review: Looking at Unusual Volume for K12, Inc. (NYSE:LRN)

by Engelwood Staff August 9, 2016

Shares of K12, Inc. (NYSE:LRN) are experiencing unusual volume during today’s trading.  While the stock price moved along with the volume change, shares are touching $11.04 at the time of writing.  The day’s total volume of 365438 this morning is in contrast from the three-month daily average of 153.50K.  When we divide the current volume by the three-month average volume, we get a relative volume of 4.15.

The difference between yesterday’s closing price and today’s opening price was -6.86%.  

Why is this important?

Trading volume is a hugely important consideration for any investor.  By watching how many shares are trading hands and looking for any changes in that activity, trading opportunities can be spotted along with a deeper understanding of the reliability of other indicators on the stock.  A significant increase in trading volume means that more than double the average amount of stocks are moving.  When volume is decreased significantly, it may indicate there is an issue that shareholders should watch out for.  It’s also important to take into consideration how long the unusual volume sustains for.  If it’s only the one trading day, it can be dismissed as an anomaly.

Looking Back

K12, Inc. (NYSE:LRN)‘s market capital, the total dollar value of all of their outstanding shares, is 509.09m.  Including today’s unusual volume, K12, Inc.‘s stock is performing at 45.80% on the year.  For the week, the stock is performing -1.53%.  Over the past month the firm’s stock is -1.00%, 7.18% for the last quarter, 33.09% for the past six-months and -9.77% for the last year.

Current levels places the company’s stock about -20.59% from the 50-day high and 0.16% away from the 50-day low.

Option Market: K12 Inc Risk Hits An Elevated Level

K12 Inc (NYSE:LRN) Risk

Date Published:

2016-07-18

PREFACE

This is a proprietary risk rating for the next 30-days built by Capital Market Laboratories (CMLviz) based on a large number of interactions of data points, many of which
come directly from the option market for K12 Inc (NYSE:LRN) .

Risk as reflected by the option market has hit
a slightly elevated level relative to the company’s past. The option market reflects a 95% confidence interval stock price range of
($11.90, $15.00) within the next 30 calendar days.

LRN OPTION MARKET RISK

The short-term risk for a stock is reflected in the option market by a measure called the 30-day implied volatility or IV30®.
The IV30 is the risk reflected by the option market in the stock price for the next 30 calendar days — it’s forward looking.
K12 Inc shows an IV30 of 50.1%, which is a slightly elevated level for the company relative to its past.

The option market for LRN has shown an IV30 annual low of
38.6% and an annual high of 72.8%, meaning that LRN is at the 34% percentile right now. Here’s a table of the data before we dig into the risk rating further.

LRN
High IV30   
50.1% 38.6% 72.8%

01020304050607080Current IV30Low IV30High IV30

The option market reflects less risk in the next 30 calendar days for K12 Inc (NYSE:LRN) than on average.

Further, if we look backwards, the stock has a realized 30-day historical volatility, called the HV30, of 39.03%.

We have an unusual situation now where the IV30 is depressed relative to the past, but even with that risk pricing, the option market reflects the likelihood of a greater stock movement in the next 30-days than the stock has realized in the last 30-days.

Let’s turn to a chart to see what’s going on.

 0510152025303540455055Next 30 DaysLast 30 Days

Note how much higher the future risk for K12 Inc is priced (50.1%) compared to what happened just in the last 30-days (39.0%).

K12 Inc Risk Rating

The LRN risk rating is at 3.5, where the rating goes from one (the lowest risk) to five (the highest risk). The driving factors for the 3.5 rating are:

↪ The IV30 is below the annual average.

↪ The IV30 is above 50%.

↪ The HV30 is below the 20th percentile.

↪ The IV30 is above the HV30.

↪ The stock has moved +33.0% over the last 3-months which does indicate some elevated risk.

WHY THIS MATTERS

Understanding short-term risk is important, but it is not the silver bullet of investing. At Capital Market Labs we identify thematic trends that will revolutionize our futures and the companies that will benefit most from them to find the “next Apple” or the “next Google.” Our research sits side-by-side with Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley and the rest on professional terminals, but we are the anti-institution. Our purpose is to break the information monopoly held by the top .1%.
Each company in our ‘Top Picks’ is the single winner in an exploding thematic shift like artificial intelligence, Internet of Things, drones, biotech and more. In fact, here is just one of the trends that will radically affect the future that we are ahead of:

Virtual reality is one of the fundamental shifts coming in the very near future that will change how we live, work, and play. This is a technology whose consumer base looks increasingly like all of humanity. This is the opportunity so many investors say they welcome – that say they search for. The opportunity to find the “Next Apple,” or the “next Google.” Friends, it’s coming right now, and it lies in the depths of technology’s core. It’s not artificial intelligence, it’s artificial super intelligence and there is one company that will rule all of it.

K12 Inc. Reports Third Quarter Fiscal 2016 with Revenue of $221.3 Million

April 27, 2016 07:00 ET

| Source: K12 Inc.

HERNDON, Va., April 27, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — K12 Inc. (NYSE:LRN), a technology-based education company and leading provider of proprietary curriculum and online school programs for students in pre-K through high school, today announced its results for the third fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2016.

Financial Highlights for the Three Months Ended March 31, 2016 (Third Quarter Fiscal Year 2016)

  • Revenues of $221.3 million, compared to $244.6 million in the third quarter of FY 2015.
  • EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure (see reconciliation below), of $36.7 million, compared to $45.2 million in the third quarter of FY 2015.
  • Operating income of $19.1 million, compared to $27.4 million in the third quarter of FY 2015.
  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $14.3 million, compared to $17.0 million in the third quarter of FY 2015. 
  • Diluted net income attributable to common stockholders per share of $0.37, compared to $0.45 in the third quarter of FY 2015. 

Financial Highlights for the Nine Months Ended March 31, 2016

  • Revenues of $651.4 million, compared to $712.6 million for the first nine months of FY 2015.
  • EBITDA, a non-GAAP measure (see reconciliation below), of $64.0 million, compared to $87.0 million for the first nine months of FY 2015.
  • Operating income of $13.4 million compared to $34.7 million for the first nine months of FY 2015.
  • Net income attributable to common stockholders of $10.0 million, compared to $22.6 million for the first nine months of FY 2015.
  • Diluted net income attributable to common stockholders per share of $0.26, compared to $0.60 for the first nine months of FY 2015.

Changes to the year-over-year financial results, for the three and nine months ended March 31, 2016, are primarily due to the transition of the Agora Cyber Charter School contract from a managed to a non-managed program.

Comments from Management                         

“We continue to achieve financial results in line with the guidance we provided for the year,” said Stuart Udell, Chief Executive Officer. “I am also extremely proud of this year’s academic accomplishments and the extraordinary efforts of our dedicated teachers and school teams.  While we have made great strides in the last few years, we will continue to work with our partners to further improve the academic outcomes for all the students we serve,” added Udell.

Cash, Capital Expenditures and Capital Leases

As of March 31, 2016, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $199.5 million, an increase of $3.6 million compared to the $195.9 million reported at June 30, 2015. This increase is largely the result of normal seasonal trends.

Capital expenditures for the nine months ended March 31, 2016 were $41.0 million, a decrease of $4.3 million from the prior year’s first nine months, and was comprised of:

  • $2.5 million for property and equipment,
  • $26.3 million for capitalized software development, and
  • $12.2 million for capitalized curriculum.

Capital leases financed additional purchases of $6.9 million during the nine months ended March 31, 2016, primarily for student computers.  This compares to capital leases financed during the nine months ended March 31, 2015 of $12.1 million.

Revenue

The following table sets forth the Company’s revenues — Managed Public School Programs (curriculum and services sold to managed public schools), Institutional (curriculum, technology and services provided to school districts, public schools and other educational institutions that the Company does not manage), and Private Pay Schools and Other (private schools for which the Company charges student tuition and makes direct consumer sales) – for the periods indicated.

Beginning in fiscal 2016, the Company has presented revenue from Non-managed Programs as part of the Institutional line of business, along with the Institutional Software and Services, which together constitute total Institutional revenue.  In the prior year these revenues were presented as part of the Public School Programs line of business, which included both Managed and Non-managed Public School Programs. We believe this revised presentation clarifies and better aligns the disclosure of Non-Managed Program revenues with the Company’s operational and sales structure.

Non-GAAP Financial Measures

EBITDA

EBITDA consists of net income plus net interest expense, plus income tax expense, minus income tax benefit, plus depreciation and amortization and non-controlling interest. Interest expense primarily consists of interest expense for capital leases. We use EBITDA in addition to income from operations and net income as a measure of operating performance. However, EBITDA is not a recognized measurement under U.S. generally accepted accounting principles, or GAAP, and when analyzing our operating performance, investors should use EBITDA in addition to, and not as an alternative for, net income as determined in accordance with GAAP. Not all companies use identical calculations for EBITDA, therefore our presentation of EBITDA may not be comparable to similarly titled measures of other companies. Furthermore, EBITDA is not intended to be a measure of free cash flow for our management’s discretionary use, as it does not consider certain cash requirements such as capital expenditures, tax payments, interest payments, or other working capital.

We believe EBITDA is useful to an investor in evaluating our operating performance because it is widely used to measure a company’s operating performance without regard to items such as depreciation and amortization, which can vary depending upon accounting methods and the book value of assets, and to present a meaningful measure of corporate performance exclusive of our capital structure and the method by which assets were acquired. Our management uses EBITDA:

  • as an additional measurement of operating performance because it assists us in comparing our performance on a consistent basis; and
  • in presentations to the members of our Board of Directors to enable our Board to have the same measurement basis of operating performance as is used by management to compare our current operating results with corresponding prior periods and with the results of other companies in our industry.

The following tables provide a reconciliation of net income to EBITDA:
