Intueri Education Group Ltd shares soar 41%: Is the stock a buy?

Shares of Intueri Education Group Ltd (ASX: IQE) are up nearly 42% today! Before investors get too excited however, they should read the fine print…

Despite today’s seemingly magnificent rally, Intueri Education’s shares are still trading lower than they were at the beginning of the week.

Much lower…

Intueri’s share price collapsed 80% on Tuesday, closing at a mere 6 cents. Shares are back at 8.5 cents today, but that’s still 71.7% below the 30 cent price tag from earlier in the month.

Shareholders of Intueri Education Group may want to look away now…

Intueri Education shareholders were given cause for alarm on 23 September when the company requested a trading halt “pending the release of an announcement to the market concerning notification received from the Australian Skills Quality Authority (ASQA) relating to possible sanctions” (my emphasis).

Yesterday, it announced the possible outcomes from the audits could, in the worst case, involve the cancellation of two of Intueri’s Registered Trading Organisations. What’s more, the company also issued strong caution to any investor looking to invest in its shares:

Intueri strongly cautions any investor seeking to trade in Intueri shares, and especially any investor seeking to acquire Intueri shares, to take full account of the information provided in this update before trading and consider delaying any such trading until further information is available.”

It’s not a good time to be a shareholder of Intueri Education, and investors may want to take Intueri’s own advice and stay clear altogether.
