2014-08-27 COMMENT Hap (Robert) Sneddon FCSI

Chart shows a little bit of a double top, which is not necessarily terrible. If the stock holds at around $71, it is probably going to visit $67. MACD is getting close to the zero line, so he is getting close to taking some off the table.

2014-08-26 HOLD Michael Sprung

This is one of his larger bank holdings. The one reason to hold this is because of its international diversification. There may be worries about some pockets in South America, but they are also in some very good areas. He was not disappointed with their earnings. Trading at about 2X BV. 3.6% dividend yield. Not a bad place to be.

2014-08-15 BUY on WEAKNESS David Cockfield

Has liked this for a long time. Likes its international exposure. They used to be just the Caribbean, but is now Mexico, Central America and into South America. The Canadian banking business is a tight market. They are all quite competitive. Quite a conservative bank. Have an excellent record of “not losing” money on the loan side. If it came off a little, he would add to his holdings.

2014-08-14 DON'T BUY Patrick Horan

This is the one back he has never owned.  They are one of the best run banks.  They are shrewd about going out into developing markets.  He is always on the sidelines because of a possible crisis with the Mexican peso.

2014-08-11 COMMENT John O'Connell, CFA

How do I activate a DRIP program on this? This is a good bank. The best way to do this is to call your broker or discount broker and tell them what you want to do. This is an excellent decision if you want to own a stock for the long haul.

(A Top Pick July 23/13. Up 29.72%.) Had a theory that all you had to do was buy the worst-performing bank in the big 5, and the next year it will either be the best or the 2nd-best. That works 18 out of 20 times.

2014-07-14 PAST TOP PICK David Baskin

(A Top Pick July 15/13. Up 31.68%.) Likes this primarily for its international exposure. Very big Latin America exposure, Southeast Asian exposure and not much US exposure. In markets that have tremendous upside with growing middle classes.

Do you see this stock splitting in the near future? The history of Cdn banks is that they like to get towards the $100 mark. This one will probably split.

2014-06-16 BUY Michael Sprung

What does diversity contribute to its attractiveness as an investment?  When you look at the banks, each one brings a different element to your portfolio.  BNS-T gives you more diversification outside of North America.  They are doing well in South America.  A solidly run bank.

2014-06-13 COMMENT Bill Carrigan

If you are a Canadian investor and have a portfolio, you have to have some bank stocks. Financials take up about 30% of the TSX, so you could have up to 30% of your portfolio in financials. Probably right now you want to be a little bit underweight. This one has reached a new high, so probably works higher.

2014-06-11 PAST TOP PICK Bruce Campbell (1)

(A Top Pick June 11/13. Up 29.34%.) Selling off most of its big stake in CI meaning the uncertainty is over. There is now another uncertainty in that they have the capital position where they could buy something else, or put the money back into wealth management. Still thinks it could go higher.

2014-06-05 TOP PICK Andrew Hamlin

International exposure.  Capital ratio is strong at just under 10%.  Just sold CI stake.  If loan growth rate slows then all banks have to look for growth elsewhere.  They have excess capital to go shopping.

2014-05-28 COMMENT David Cockfield

One of his core holdings. Likes their exposure in the Caribbean and South and Central Americas, which is paying off in an excellent way. They are into markets and economies that are growing at 5%-6%, versus 2%-2.5% in Canada. The Caribbean has been soft, but this bank has been smart enough to expand out of their area. Thinks this will continue.

2014-05-26 COMMENT Richard Croft

$66 Puts for October? Insurance is cheap right now because implied volatility on most of the banks is very cheap and they have actually had a very good run. The price today was $68, so you are $2 out of the money. 6 months out is typically what he would use, so October is fine. When you are trading stocks that have high dividends, you are going to pay more for the Put then you are for the Call options. Aside from that, there is nothing wrong with this strategy.
