Wells Fargo downgraded Apollo Group (NASDAQ: APOL) from Outperform to Market Perform and cut its valuation range from $32-$35 to $17-$19 following the company’s FQ2 earnings report.

In its downgrade, the firm said while attractive cash flow could spark a rally at the earliest sign of stable demand, "we fear that the negative effects of the company's campus closures could persist for several more quarters, pushing a likely catalyst into CY2014."

Wells Fargo cut FY2013 EPS estimate to $2.77 from $2.80 and FY2014 estimate to $2.20 from $2.83.
