Five Elevating Education Stocks That Look Promising

Education is vital, success is groomed by knowledge, and there are a few education company stocks that are also worth the time and energy you'd like to put into becoming a successful education stock holder.

Stocks that meet you half way, that are growing, and pushing to provide beneficial supplements to their industry, are the keepers. Here's some inception on five stocks that are promising.

DeVry (NYSE: DV) DeVry offers a diverse program catalog and holds prestige as one of the best job placement schools in the industry. Integrity isn't all that's strong at DeVry, so are the numbers, DeVry is up 30 percent at 31.59 which is significantly close to its 52-week high at 34.51. DeVry has zero debt on record, and they are one of the top in the industry for year-over-year revenue performance. In addition, they will be showcased as one of the leading companies in the for-profit education industry at the 13th annual back to school education conference, need I say more?

K12 Inc. (NYSE: LRN) K12 Inc. provides grade-school education to approximately 100,700 students of virtual schools in 32 states and the District of Columbia. Up 22 percent since June, the stock is at 37.36 shadowing its high of 38.14. K12 Inc. will attend the 13th annual back to school education conference on September 12, where the panel will discuss international expansion, education technology and more. The investor conference may bring favorable attention to K12 Inc.

Capella Education Co. (NASDAQ: CPLA) After a decline for a handful of quarters, Capella rises up 37 percent, hedge fund managers have been putting in more investment capital behind the online post-secondary education providers, bringing Capella to 57.14—showing a new and steady start. Kevin Gilligan, chairman and CEO, along with Steve Polacek, senior vice president and CFO of Capella Education are to present at the 13th annual back to school education conference as well. This should shine a bright light from investors and specialist on the Capella Education Corporation.

Grand Canyon Education Inc. (NASDAQ: LOPE) Grand Canyon Education is up 12 percent since June, reaching 36.55. They offer post-secondary education online to 52,292 students, ranking 29th in IBD's 50 with a 95 earnings per share rating and an 88 relative price strength. They too will be at the back to school education conference amongst more than 100 leading for-profit senior executives.

Strayer Education Inc. (NASDAQ: STRA) Strayer Education Inc. too will be attending the back to school education conference; however, they are pulling to progressively raise their stock value. They've reached their high of 41.60 on September 11 and hope to go beyond that in the near future depending on: a stronger economic environment, federal student loans, and employment improvement.
