While the company's net interest margin is narrow, fee revenue from the company's core from trust, custody and asset management business made up 73% of total second-quarter revenue, while net interest revenue was only 28% of total revenue. Mosby estimates that State Street's net interest margin will contract by another nine basis points through the end of 2013. The analyst rates State Street a "Buy," and on Monday raised his price target for the shares by $55 from $49, "based on our detailed analysis that ties returns on tangible common equity to a relative premium to tangible book value and growth in tangible book value per share." Mosby said he expected "STT to earn a 15% return on tangible common equity in 2013 with an estimated cost of equity around 10%," and said that "if STT can regenerate revenue growth coupled with some efficiency improvements, the valuations can begin to improve.
