What are Wall Street analysts saying about Northern Trust stock?

Here are some recent quotes from research analysts about Northern Trust stock:
  • 1. According to Zacks Investment Research, "Shares of Northern Trust have underperformed the industry in the past six months. Earnings estimates have been going downward ahead of the company’s fourth quarter results. Yet, the company has an impressive earnings surprise history, surpassing the Zacks Consensus Estimate in three of the trailing four quarters. Northern Trust continues to benefit from its strong wealth management operations, along with diversified products. Also, the Fed’s interest rate hikes are expected to further ease margin pressure and support its top line. However, despite undertaking cost-saving measures, mounting expenses continue to hurt the company's financials. Moreover, elevated non-performing assets remain concerns. Also, stretched valuation indicates limited upside potential in the stock." (1/14/2019)
  • 2. Vining Sparks analysts commented, "We believe NTRS remains well positioned to continue growing its net interest income (NII) at a double-digit pace YOY while also driving meaningful growth in its core fee revenues. Thus, we believe, as this fundamental improvement in its core earnings is paired with its recently announced acceleration in capital deployment; NTRS should be able to improve its profitability by over another full percentage point over the next 12 months. As this improvement is realized, NTRS should create over 20% total shareholder returns for investors." (7/23/2018)
