Stocks in this article: STT

  • Second-quarter EPS of $1.24 beats consensus estimate of $1.19.
  • Operating revenue of $2.580 billion beats consensus estimate of $2.535 billion.
  • Revenue up 4.9% year-over-year
  • Assets under custody grow 1% sequentially but 15% year-over-year.

NEW YORK ( TheStreet) -- State Street (STT) of Boston on Friday reported sequential and year-over-year increases in servicing and asset management fees, with revenue rising in all business lines except for brokerage.

The custody bank and asset manager reported second-quarter net income available to common shareholders of $571 million, or $1.24 a share, increasing from $455 million, or 98 cents a share, in the first quarter, and $480 million, or 98 cents a share, during the second quarter of 2012.

State Street's second-quarter operating revenue totaled $2.580 billion, increasing from $2.470 billion the previous quarter and $2.459 billion a year earlier.

The results came in ahead of the consensus estimates among analysts polled by Thomson Reuters for first-quarter EPS of $1.19 on revenue of $2.535 billion.

Servicing fee revenue was up 2% sequentially and 11% year-over-year to $1.201 billion during the first quarter, as assets under custody grew to 1% from the first quarter and 15% year-over-year, to $25.742 trillion as of June 30.

Management fee income totaled $277 million in the second quarter, increasing 5% from the previous quarter and 13% year-over-year. Assets under management increased 12.5% year-over-year to $2.146 trillion as of June 30, although they were down slightly from the previous quarter.

Trading services revenue also grew, to $296 million during the second quarter from $281 million in the first quarter and $255 million in the second quarter of 2012. Within the trading services group, brokerage income declined to $125 million during the second quarter from $135 million the previous quarter and $126 million a year earlier.

Brokerage was the only business area showing a sequential revenue decline.

State Street's net interest revenue during the second quarter was $582 million, increasing from $577 million during the first quarter, but declining from $629 million during the second quarter of 2012, as the net interest margin was flat sequentially at 1.31%, but down from 1.54% a year earlier.

State Street CEO Joseph Hooley said in the company's earnings release that the revenue growth was "driven by new business and improved equity markets," adding that "Seasonal factors and increased market volatility benefited our securities finance and foreign exchange businesses." Hooley also said "we achieved positive operating leverage compared to both the first quarter of 2013 and the second quarter of 2012."
