The Bank of New York Mellon (NYSE:BK)‘s stock had its “neutral” rating reiterated by Zacks in a research note issued to investors on Monday. They currently have a $41.00 target price on the stock. Zacks‘s target price points to a potential upside of 4.65% from the stock’s previous close.

Zacks’ analyst wrote, “BNY Mellon’s second-quarter earnings surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate. The quarter benefited from higher investment management & performance fees, partially offset by a decline in net interest revenues and higher expenses. Moreover, an improvement in the asset position aided results. The fervent restructuring initiatives and acquisitions undertaken by the company along with its prudent expense management will propel top line growth going forward. Moreover, a robust capital position and enhanced capital deployment activities will continue to boost investors’ confidence. However, litigation costs and additional expenses driven by increased restructuring activities will keep the top line under pressure in the near term. Also, a persistently low interest rate environment and slow economic recovery are expected to weigh on the company’s profitability.”
