Why the Idp Education Ltd share price is going nuts

International student placement services company Idp Education Ltd (ASX: IEL) is becoming a regular candidate on the 52-week high list after closing off May trade at $9.68 – up 117% from its share price at this time last year.

IDP shares hit the 52-week high list again today – up 1.5% to $9.83 at the time of writing and the company has been making solid share price gains for years, with its share price graph showing a steady incline since its 2015 listing with few dips.

IDP is doing well with its global expansion strategy, with a recent partnership with US company Cognizant and acquisition of a stake in Chinese English language company HCP Limited on the books.

Training provider peer Navitas Limited (ASX: NVT) is worth keeping an eye on as its enrolment figures grow and forecasts for FY18 look promising.

But shares in childcare centre operator G8 Education Ltd (ASX: GEM) have been on the decline lately, down another 2% to $2.44 at the time of writing.
