    The Securities and Exchange Commission has charged the for-profit college giant ITT Educational Services and its two top executives with fraud, saying the company “made various false and misleading statements and omissions” that concealed the “extraordinary failure” of two of its student loan programs from investors.

    The news sent the troubled company into a financial tailspin, with its stock plummeting 36%. The stock is now down 98% from its high point in 2008, and the company is in disarray: its top executives, the subjects of the SEC charges, have announced plans to leave the company later this year, and it has yet to file its 2014 annual report, which was due in March.

    That squirrely fuck is disturbing. I hate when that commercial comes on TV at 4AM.

    He looks like Jackie Earle Haley trying not to look like a crack head.

    I wouldn't touch it now either. The allegations look serious, and this will impact any future loans they might need.

    This stock is going to head further south, and maybe bankruptcy imo.

    Does this mean if I spend a fortune on one of their edgy, high tech programs I won't be offered the CEO position at IBM

    Just a little bit for fun. I've watched many bounces go by instead of riding them. Not this time dangnabbit.

    Also, this company has been around forever. I remember seeing the commercials as a kid. Longevity counts for something...sometimes.

    Yeah look at the lifetime history of the stock... Stranger things have happened. $200 to the casino or $200 on a five-year gamble on ITT... Why not?

    I thought the same thing back in 08-09' when GM was scraping the bottom. No way they could go bankrupt. Been around too long.
    I lost some $$ on that bet.

    These guys are only in the business of getting the students financed.
    None of the credits are accepted at any accredited institution.

    Kind of like the Connecticut School of Broadcasting.
    The only difference being that CSB could actually place you.
    Artie Lange is a CSB graduate.

    On the other hand, Bank of American at $2 after the financial crisis or many of the airlines after 911 would have been very lucrative.

    Not only it took taxpayers to help out, but Warren Buffet also had to run in to save the day. BOA had the infrastructure in place and an international trusted brand.

    Yeah, and even so, some major players still went down hard.

    That seems to be outside the jurisdiction of the Southeastern Conference.
