I am a former stockbroker, now with a "regular 9 to 5" career outside the financial industry. I have been following stocks for 20 years, and came across a momentum-based system for stock picking.

  • Stock of the Day - LRN 0 comments
    Feb 26, 2011 12:53 PM | about stocks: LRN

    I frequently profile stocks that are climbing on the "Triple" radar screen.  Today I'm highlighting LRN.  

    LRN was founded in 200 and headquartered in Virginia.  The company provides curriculum services for grades K through 12 with a heavy online presence.  They have online classes and curriculum for public and private schools.  According to their website, "K¹² is America's largest provider of online education for grades K-12."

    Here is a video about home schooling with LRN in the Bay Area:

    On February 9th, shares jumped 10% on revenue guidance provided by the company.  From an <a href=";>AP News story</a>, "Revenues rose 38.4 percent to $129 million in the quarter, and the Herndon, Va., company said it expects revenue of $515 to $520 million for the year, up from $384.5 million last year. That forecast easily topped Wall Street's revenue expectation of $504.2 million."

    Here's <a href=";>another article</a> from the fools at The Motley Fool that came out on the same day.

    Now the most important part of the story, the stock price.  Below is a 1 year chart for LRN:

    Average volume is 179K.  Keep an eye on this one, and happy stock picking!

    Disclosure:  I do not own LRN.
