State Street's Management Has Seen The Light With Regard To Its $1.8B Buyback
In the wake of State Street Corporation's (STT) Q2 2012 earnings results, we published reports expressing our concern that State Street was still perceived as being on a deal-crazed buyout binge. We believe that the company is still an undervalued industry leader in the asset management and administration industry and we can see why Nelson Peltz of Trian Fund Management has a bigger position in it versus Legg Mason (LM) or Lazard (LAZ) - Trian's other asset manager holdings.
We also believe that the most important strategic initiative for State Street with regards to utilizing shareholder capital should be to complete its $1.8B buyback. While State Street repurchased more shares than Bank of New York Mellon (BK) and Northern Trust (NTRS) combined in Q2 2012, BNY Mellon and NTRS's management have not been bringing up acquisitions at the conference calls of those respective companies.
