In a report published Friday, Bank of America Merrill Lynch reiterated its Neutral rating on Apollo Group (NASDAQ: APOL), but lowered its price target from $28.00 to $24.00.

However, we see limited near term catalysts given persistent new student start declines, increasing competition, and more price sensitive students. We await for signs that starts are stabilizing and that the company will be able deliver on its cost cutting initiatives before getting more constructive.”
