UPDATE: Jefferies & Company Reiterates Hold Rating, Lowers PT on Northern Trust Corporation
In a report published Monday, Jefferies & Company reiterated its Hold rating on Northern Trust Corporation (NASDAQ: NTRS), but slightly lowered its price target from $49.00 to $48.00.
Jefferies noted, “Despite a decent market rally this summer, we expect 3Q results to reveal a mixed revenue picture, with weaker transaction fees and spread income negating market tailwinds. We expect a modest EPS beat from NTRS and slight misses for BK and STT. While 2013 EPS gets support from higher markets, we are skeptical the group can sustain spread income at current levels given more challenging asset yields.”
Northern Trust Corporation closed on Friday at $47.35.
