Another election winner: For profit-colleges

For-profit colleges explained

For-profit colleges and their investors have had a rough couple of years. But they’re hoping for easier days ahead under a Trump administration.

The University of Phoenix parent company Apollo Education Group (APOL) has risen nearly 8% since November 8, and Capella University’s (CPLA) stock is up about 15%.
