Based on a quarterly payout of 13 cents, the shares have a dividend yield of 2.37%.

The shares trade for 2.2 times tangible book value, and for 8.9 times the consensus 2013 EPS estimate of $2.47. The consensus 2012 EPS estimate is $2.21.

The company plans to repurchase up to $1.16 billion in common shares this year, and reported buying back "17.3 million common shares in the open market at an average price of $21.53 per share for a total of $371 million," during the first quarter.

Analysts expect Bank of New York Mellon to report second-quarter earnings of 54 cents a share, improving from 52 cents the previous quarter, but declining from 59 cents a year earlier.

KBW analyst Robert Lee rates Bank of New York Mellon "Market Perform," with a $26 price target, saying on Wednesday that "to some extent BK may be the most levered of the trust and custody banks to near-term capital markets activity (both good and bad), particularly debt issuance, and M&A and trading volumes," adding that "asset management should enjoy positive long-term inflows, although given BK's size, the incremental impact of modest changes in net flows, particularly into lower-fee indexed and fixed income products, is minimal."

KBW estimates that Bank of New York Mellon will report second-quarter earnings of 51 cents, with EPS estimate of $2.15 for all of 2012, and $2.45 in 2013.
