07:26 EDTKKR, APOApollo, KKR downgraded to Market Perform at Wells Fargo
Wells Fargo downgraded both Apollo Global (APO) and KKR (KKR) to Market Perform from Outperform saying it sees "considerable downside risk" to earnings as incentives go away. Wells believes business conditions have been near ideal for private equity firms over the last five years, and it expects some reversion to the mean going forward as the latter stages of the credit cycle approaches, reducing incentives and distributions. Wells lowered its price target range for Apollo to $21-$25 from $27-$30 and for KKR to $22-$25 from $27-$30.

Fitch Ratings analyst Alex Bumazhny now calls a swift bankruptcy process "increasingly unlikely," while the presiding judge gave additional scope last week to investigate the disputed deals.
