For-profit education company Apollo Group (APOL) is climbing after Deutsche Bank analyst Paul Ginocchio upgraded the stock to Hold from Sell in a note to investors earlier today. The valuation of University of Phoenix students reflected by the stock has reached "pretty distressed levels," wrote the analyst. Even if the company's enrollment trends deteriorate farther, the stock is unlikely to fall much below current levels, the analyst believes. The company's Learning Management System - which uses advanced computer learning features to adapt teaching methods to individual students - is worth $2-$6 per share, Ginocchio contends. This system and the company's cash justify a share price of $10-$16 without factoring in the University of Phoenix, the analyst wrote. Finally, the changes that Apollo must make to retain accreditation from the Higher Learning Commission should not significantly lower the company's enrollment trends or increase its costs, added Ginocchio, who retained a $17 price target on the shares. In mid-morning trading, Apollo Group jumped 85c, or 5% to $17. Other for-profit education companies also advanced, with ITT Educational (ESI) gaining 3% to $12.75, Grand Canyon (LOPE) rising 1.7% to $23.45, and Strayer (STRA) climbing 1.2% to $47.50.

15:32 EDTCOCOCorinthian Colleges ceases effectively all operations
Corinthian Colleges announced that the company has ceased substantially all operations and discontinued instruction at its remaining 28 ground campuses. The company is working with other schools to provide continuing educational opportunities for its approximately 16,000 students. Corinthian said those efforts depend to a great degree on cooperation with partnering institutions and regulatory authorities. Campuses closed include the 13 remaining Everest and WyoTech campuses in California, Everest College Phoenix and Everest Online Tempe in Arizona, the Everest Institute in New York, and Heald College -- including its 10 locations in California, one in Hawaii and one in Oregon. Additionally, Zenith Education has recently advised Corinthian that it will not consummate the purchase of Everest College Phoenix, and the closing conditions have not been satisfied for Everest Institute Rochester. Also, the company had been in advanced negotiations with several parties to both sell Heald College and to arrange for teach-out partners to allow its Everest College and WyoTech students in California to continue their education. The company said these efforts were unsuccessful largely as a result of federal and state regulators seeking to impose financial penalties and conditions on buyers and teach-out partners.
