2016-06-23 COMMENT Stan Wong

From a valuation standpoint it looks to be pretty cheap at about 10X forward earnings, but these banks have been cheap for a while. The hope of interest rates finally moving higher has really been there to push these bank stocks higher. Interest rates are going to be pushed further along in terms of the pace of hikes down the road. Because of that he has traded this recently, buying at about $13.50-$14 and selling it at $15. There are other names that are a bit more attractive in the US financial space, such as J.P. Morgan (JPM-N).

2016-06-17 DON'T BUY Norman Levine

US banks are much more sensitive to the interest rate spread than what Canadian banks are. The US banks like to take your deposit money in short term and buy bonds that are longer term, and work off of the spread. As the yield curve is flattening as longer term rates come down, that ability to make money on the spread is going away, which is hurting US banks. He also doesn’t like this bank because it is an investment bank. The outlook does not look good, and is not going to be good for a while.

2016-06-16 COMMENT James Thorne

The yield curve is very flat. Securitization was introduced in the 1970s. Banks overearned and expanded their business model. Those days are over. Now you have this big business model and they are asking themselves how they can make money. They used to be able to get through this by making mergers and acquisitions, but they can no longer do that. On the long-term structural view, he is not very bullish on banks. In the short term, if they do get a period of rising interest rates, there may be a nice trade for 6-8 months. Thinks the big banks are going to have to start selling themselves off, because the old business model is no longer profitable.

2016-06-15 COMMENT Gordon Reid

All banks are going to be affected by the major macro issues of the federal reserve’s monetary policy, and are all basically in the same boat. They are earning money, loan growth is slow but growing, and assets are growing. The thing that is going to allow them to really do well is a steepening of the yield curve, because that increases margins. This is a good core position.

2016-06-13 BUY Erin Gibbs

Has been really good at changing their balance sheet, getting rid of bad debt and adding on new loans that are safer. Have also been getting fees from non-interest rate types of operations, such as card fees. All interest bearing revenues in this low interest rate environment, are going to be more challenging. It also has that Libor suit hanging over it right now. However, she feels that suit represents somewhat of a buying opportunity, because the actual liability they may have, even if they lose, is actually pretty small. Dividend yield of 1.5%.

2016-06-13 COMMENT John Stephenson

Very cheap. Trading at about 80% of BV. A great franchise. Financials are under pressure. Banks primarily make their money by lending to people and borrowing the spread that they charge on short term deposits. That spread is affected by the overall prevailing interest rates in the market. As rates come down and the yield curve flattens, their net interest margins decrease. At some point in the future, whether this year or next, he thinks some of these clouds will lift and this will return to a more reasonable valuation.

2016-06-06 COMMENT Jim Huang

This is a slow growth, low interest rate environment. Interest rates may go up a little bit, which will help the banks. Trading at a cheap multiple, but it needs to see some catalysts to get earnings growing. Hopefully higher interest rates will be it. A reasonable company to own, but they do need a bit of a kick.

2016-06-01 COMMENT Matthew McCall

Feels some of the other big US money centres are doing much better. This has been struggling to get above resistance. He would prefer J.P. Morgan (JPM-N) which has performed much better. He would also lean towards regional banks, because as interest rates go up, regional banks will really benefit from that due to the number of loans they are making.

2016-05-30 PAST TOP PICK Bruce Tatters

(A Top Pick July 15/15. Down 15.02%.) It looked like they were going to start the rate hike cycle last year, and then the Fed scared everybody in December. Sees a lot of risk in the Canadian banks and thinks the US banks are ridiculously cheap. They need the rate hike cycle to start moving.

2016-05-30 TOP PICK Bruce Tatters

US financials, this bank in particular, are trading as if they will never earn money again. Businesses do not trade at tangible book when they are earning money, they usually are losing money. This company is earning an 8% ROE and is still trading at tangible book. It has 30% earnings leverage to a 1% move in the yield curve. If we get our 1% over the next 12-15 months, the stock is going to be 60%-80% higher.

2016-05-24 COMMENT Jennifer Radman

Banks are spread earners, so the more that interest rates move up, the more of a spread they can get and there is less pressure on the business. Changing expectations took a bit of life out of all the banks. She prefers Citibank (C-N) which is trading at a bigger discount to BV. However, the big picture drivers are all the same.

US banks are under pressure from low oil prices and interest rates.  These companies got rid of all their problems and are well positioned if oil and interest rates do well including the US economy.

2016-05-18 COMMENT Steve Belisle

US banks are very sensitive to the economic situation. If there is some disappointment, they will be at the forefront. Went down a lot in Q1 this year. He is quite concerned about being exposed to US banks at this point. However, if the Fed surprises the market in June and hikes rates, the place you want to be is in US banks.

5 or 10 years down the road there is great potential.  He thinks Banks will underperform for the next 3 to 4 years.  It is a pretty big top since 2014.  It has broken down.  If you are a trader, then lighten up on banks.

Probably one of the more volatile big name banks in the US. Trading at 60% of Book Value. Doesn’t think there is a lot of downside. It is going to be an increase in interest rates that drives this bank.
