Wells Fargo downgraded Career Education (NASDAQ: CECO) from to Market Perform and lowered their valuation range to $2-6 from $5-7.

The firm comments, "We are downgrading our rating on CECO to Market Perform from Outperform following the unveiling of the company's turnaround plan. Given the poor visibility into enrollment and margins and the likely high cash cost of campus closures, we think the shares could remain range-bound until the company is able and willing to provide greater visibility around future earnings."
