NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- Shares of for-profit education companies surged last week after industry bellwether DeVry Inc. reported strong fourth quarter results.

For-profit educators were also boosted by a report from the Congressional Budget Office that showed the Pell Grant Program, which provides need-based grants to low-income undergraduate students, is on pace to run a surplus in 2013 and 2014. There had been many experts within the industry that had expected a budget deficit accompanied by budget cuts.
"In a fiscal environment where unbudgeted programs are all under intense scrutiny, we believe this is a major victory for college students, but in particular for-profit students, who are more likely to be eligible for Pell funding as a result of lower incomes and financial independence," said William Blair & Co. analyst Brandon Dobell.
