2 Education Stocks Trying to Make the Grade

The video below is from Friday's Motley Fool Money radio show, featuring host Chris Hill along with analysts Joe Magyer, Ron Gross, and James Early. In this segment, the focus is on two for-profit education companies that had a very bad week. Shares of Bridgepoint Education fell after the company revealed the U.S. Justice Department's impending investigation of its compensation structure, and shares of Apollo Group hit a 10-year low after its latest earnings dropped 60%. In the following video, the guys look at the challenges facing Bridgepoint and Apollo Group and analyze the companies' efforts to right their respective ships.
