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.
