2016-06-17 PAST TOP PICK Norman Levine

(A Top Pick May 26/15. Up 4.83%.) The only Canadian bank he owns. He doesn’t have big exposure in Canadian banks. The outlook for writing off loans is getting worse. He worries about real estate, oil/gas exposure. There are better growth opportunities outside of Canadian banks.

It is fine for the long term, as are the other Canadian banks.  He always liked their Latin American business.  They are unusual amongst the 5 banks.

2016-06-09 PAST TOP PICK Douglas Kee

(A Top Pick July 16/15. Up 5.88%.) Has been a little challenged this year. Took a big hit on their loan portfolio this quarter, and management has indicated that that is probably the peak of their loan problems. There will still be loan loss provisions coming out into 2017 for all the banks.

2016-06-06 COMMENT Jim Huang

Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS-T) or TD (TD-T) and FinTech competition? Everybody is competing with FinTech these days and all the banks have issues. A lot of FinTech’s advantage is that they are not really regulated at this stage and can do a lot of things regular banks cannot do. Banks are taking measures including cutting costs, introducing new technology, etc. It is still early stage. The choice between these 2 banks is that TD has better exposure and this one has better International exposure. At this point he thinks TD is winning out with a steadier economy.

2016-06-02 TOP PICK Michael Sprung

Have had a very good recent quarter. He likes the diversification. Have an international footprint, but have lost the premium that they tend to trade at relative to the other banks. That is usually a good time to be looking at banks. Inevitably in the cycle it is going to come back again. Likes the strong focus they are putting on cost and expense control. 4.4% dividend yield.

2016-05-25 BUY David Burrows

BNS-T vs. NA-T.  Totally different.  BNS-T is a global bank leaning toward the Caribbean.  NA-T is not the same thing.  This environment is constructive for developed markets with energy prices staying stable.  He prefers more North American exposure so chooses NA-T.  He would prefer RY-T to either of these.

2016-05-04 TOP PICK Greg Newman

This name has too high of a short interest.  They have a high exposure to emerging markets.  The energy book is well contained compared to peers.  It has a 4.4% dividend that will grow over time.

Longer-term valuations are still pretty solid for all of the Canadian banks. Trading at about 11X earnings with a yield of 4%+. A good addition to your portfolio.

2016-04-15 BUY Rick Stuchberry

What do you think of having a global diversification with an emphasis on growing within the countries where they already operate? This is the international bank in Canada and he likes it. This strategy makes sense, because if you already have your logistics set up it makes sense to consolidate. The bulk of their operations are in the Western Hemisphere, which gives them the opportunity to get more growth.

Model price $74, 16% upside.  He thinks it goes to $72.40 first so would nibble here.

2016-04-13 COMMENT Bruce Campbell (2)

National Bank (NA-T) or Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS-T) for a long-term dividends and growth? Using his ranking system, he would favour this bank. However, looking at the longer-term on both, National Bank has probably outperformed. It depends on where you think the economy is going. If you think emerging markets in Latin America are going to improve, this bank will probably have a little bit more growth.

2016-04-07 COMMENT Jon Vialoux

The seasonal period has ended for the banks, so it is prudent to exit some of these. If you are a long-term holder, Canadian banks are not a bad place to be, and offer quite a juicy yield. Also, volatility tends to be much less than the general market. The next period of seasonal strength will be from August through to December, into their earnings season.

Long-term you should be fine holding this. Banks are going to continue to generate a lot of profits going forward. However, expect more volatility out of this.

2016-03-04 TOP PICK David Cockfield

There were naysayers who seem to be worried about their international exposure. Their international exposure is only Central America, Mexico and some parts of South America, but not in Brazil. When they reported, their big growth was on the International side, up 21%. Still trading at a very low multiple at 10X. Yield of 4.89%.

2016-02-29 COMMENT Brooke Thackray

The banking sector tends to do well at this time of year, but banks have a lot of headwinds against them. The good news is that the banks have come through this earnings season relatively unscathed. The banks are stable as far as an investment goes, for the next little while. If this breaks above $58, that will be very positive.
