Brexit affect on Canadian Banks? His view is that it will be a non-event. This bank is working its way more into the US, which he likes. Last acquisition was good and they seem to be hitting their stride.

4.1% yield.  The best performing bank recently. They did a good job of turning this bank around.  He is impressed with how they are doing in Canada as well as internationally.  He prefers BNS-T, however.

2016-04-26 COMMENT Jerome Hass

Guardian Capital (GCG.A-T) sold its mutual fund to this bank in exchange for 5 million BMO shares in 2001, and have been sitting on them ever since. He has been Long Guardian and Short this bank since 2009, which was the equivalent of buying BMO for $.50 on the dollar. Since then Guardian has risen about 140% versus the 60% that BMO has. In pair trading, it is how they move relative to each other.

Banks often peak out in the early part of the year.  A downtrend was broken.  Resistance looks about $82.  He is neutral to somewhat bullish on the banks.  Hold it if you own it.

2016-04-05 COMMENT Steve DiGregorio

(Market Call Minute.) This fits his model of wanting US exposure in a bank, but Toronto Dominion (TD-T) is #1 and Royal (RY-T) is #2 on that list.

2016-03-31 BUY Lyle Stein

You are looking at their operations in the Midwest US.  Harris has proved to be quite good for them.  They have done well.  Now you have US assets and an economy that is stronger than the Canadian one.  4.3% yield.

2016-03-31 COMMENT Greg Newman

Executing really well. Capital ratios are really good and were up 11% year-over-year in Q1. Their energy book looks really well contained relative to their peers. They have US exposure which is good. They are trading at a premium to the rest of the banks. This is definitely going to give you dividend growth over time. He would be more of a seller at these levels than a buyer, probably through selling Calls.

2016-03-03 PAST TOP PICK Ross Healy

(Top Pick Mar 17/15, Up 4.35%) It has done quite well compared to the TSX.  He looks for the cheapest of the lot of a group of stocks.  This has worked out very nicely.  Right now he does not particularly prefer this to the other Canadian Banks.  He might prefer BNS-T or CM-T right now.

2016-02-08 PAST TOP PICK Jerome Hass

(A Top Pick Feb 10/15. Up 1.34%.) *A Short paired with GCG.A Long*. The reason for this trade was that Guardian has sold its mutual fund business to BMO in exchange for $5 million of BMO shares.

2016-02-04 COMMENT Michael Sprung

All the banks look fairly reasonable, and it’s just a matter of which ones you want to own. It has taken this one a long time to get any payback and reasonable return on investment on their ventures into the US. They recently had some good moves. Sold their retirement service business as well as some other non-core assets. Selling at a bit of a discount at 1.3X Book, where others are higher. If it got a lot cheaper, he would certainly be looking at it. Dividend yield of 4.5%.

2016-01-15 COMMENT David Driscoll

Canadian Banks are in a conundrum right now. They are not growing the way they should be growing, because parts of their business has dried up. Capital markets activity is not great and the mortgage business is starting to slow down. Some banks are starting to lay people off which is not a good sign as it means they’ve got cost overruns. Just own one of the banks. This one would rank 4th or 5th of the top 5, and only because they have always been trying to reinvent themselves.

2016-01-08 PAST TOP PICK Jon Vialoux

(A Top Pick Oct 9/15. Down 1.6%.) Canadian banks tend to run up into their earnings. Between Oct 10 and Dec 1, this tends to gain about 5.1% on average. It has been positive in 15 of the past 19 years. During the current period of seasonal strength, it actually gained 6.6%, so it exceeded the average.

2016-01-04 HOLD Bruce Campbell (1)

It had been a 5th favourite of the big 5 for some time.  It has some US exposure.  They bought a bank in the US.  He prefers TD-T and his Top Pick today in banks.  The Canadian housing bubble is a huge risk.  He thinks CM-T will be the best performing when energy turns.

2015-12-17 HOLD Christine Poole

One of three banks she holds.  She would not sell here even though banks have not done well.  It is the overhang of the impact of oil.  She thinks the Economy will slowly improve going into 2016.  They increased the dividend slightly with record profits.  Earnings will continue to grow although not as much as previously.  There is a view that we won’t see the full impact of low energy prices until next year.
