Jefferies analyst Ken Usdin called the company's third-quarter results a "decent beat" that was "supportive of [the] 2013 consensus," and said that although "some may view the run-rate as unsustainable given overearning in fixed income/seed capital gains, we peg the EPS run-rate as no worse than the mid-$0.50's." Usdin estimated that excluding one-time items, Bank of New York Mellon's third-quarter operating profit was 57 cents a share, and noted that "investment & other income and FX & other (driven by fixed income trading) came in much stronger than expected, which may not be sustainable." Usdin rates Bank of New York Mellon a "Hold," with a $25 price target. Bank of New York Mellon's shares have now returned 27% year-to-date, following a 33% decline during 2011.
