The Bank of New York Mellon Corporation (BK) , with a current value of $41.03B, started the session at $38.20. Today, shares have traded between $37.86 and $38.56 per share with a trailing 52-week range being $32.20 to $45.45. BK shares are currently priced at 12.63x this year’s forecasted earnings, which makes them relatively expensive compared to the industry’s 10.39x earnings multiple for the same period. The company pays shareholders $0.68 per share in dividend income per year, for a current yield of 1.82%. Consensus earnings for the current quarter by the 18 sell-side analysts covering the stock is an estimate of $0.68 per share, which would be $0.01 better than the year-ago quarter and a $0.03 sequential decrease. The full-year EPS estimate is $3.02, which would be a $0.17 better than last year. The quarterly earnings estimate is predicated on a consensus revenue forecast of $3.74 Billion. If reported, that would be a 0.53% decrease over the year-ago quarter. Recently, JP Morgan upgraded BK from Neutral to Overweight (Jan 7, 2016). Previously, BofA/Merrill upgraded BK from Neutral to Buy. When considering if the stock is under or overvalued, the average price target is $42.82, which is 12.09% above where the stock opened this morning.
