2015-03-31 DON'T BUY Paul Gardner, CFA

His least favourite of the banks. It has a large exposure to Latin America and is focused on the global market in wholesale banking. The banking world is very competitive right now. This bank is well capitalized and well rated, but Latin America is under stress.

He is thinking of adding to his position.  It is the only Canadian bank be owns.  They have more of their operations outside of Canada than any other Canadian bank.

(Top Pick Jun 5/14, Down 6.69%)  There is nothing wrong with it and for a number of months he has been more positive on US regional banks.  He doesn’t own any Canadian banks.

2015-03-13 COMMENT Gavin Graham

This bank has Latin America, the Caribbean and Asia. If you are concerned about the problems in the domestic market, this and Toronto Dominion (TD-T) are the 2 banks that have non-Canadian exposure. This bank has been an under performer because of problems in its emerging-market book. If you are going to buy one bank, it would be this one.

2015-03-10 BUY John O'Connell, CFA

Well-run bank. They have a new CEO who is shaking things up quite a bit. Had some problems in their Latin American and Caribbean operations. He thinks the 4.33% dividend is safe and will protect you in a sloppy market. Canadian bank stocks look attractive here. They have all had 10%-15% corrections.

2015-03-05 BUY Brian Acker, CA

Their international exposure does not affect his analysis.  RY-T has had no upside to model price for years and now has over 10%.  The model price for BNS-T is $74.71 or 15% upside.  It looks attractive here.

2015-03-02 BUY on WEAKNESS Larry Berman CFA, CMT, CTA

Thinks Canadian Banks move sideways for a while.  At $66-7 it is probably not compelling.  He has reduced bank exposure.  The dividend is safe and attractive.  You may get an opportunity to get it at the low end of the trading range sometime this year.

You would own this one for its International exposure and its decent dividend profile.

2015-02-25 COMMENT Michael Sprung

We have seen a mix of earnings coming out from the banks. On this one, you are dealing with a different kind of international diversification. Not sure that their exposure to South America and the Caribbean are going to be a big positive catalyst right now. He does like this bank and thinks it is fairly well priced at the current levels. Dividend yield of 4%.

2015-02-18 TOP PICK David Cockfield

Banks have had a real downturn, and from what he can understand it is because of guys in New York that are Shorting Canadian banks. If you are concerned about slow growth in Canada, Mexico is booming, Central and South America are doing okay. This is where he expects the growth to come from. This is a conservative bank. Yield of 3.90%.

2015-02-13 COMMENT Brendan Caldwell

The most “international” of the Canadian banks, so if you want participation in what is going on in the rest of the world, this is going to be your best bet. However, if the rest of the world remains weak, this is the one that is the most vulnerable. If you want to trade the trend right now, Toronto Dominion (TD-T) is probably your best bet for exposure to the US.

2015-02-13 COMMENT Jon Vialoux

He likes Canadian banks here. They have 2 periods of seasonal strength. One is from mid-January all the way through to April and the other one is more towards late summer, but October through to early December is the next period. Chart shows this is breaking the trend line resistance into the period of seasonal strength. It was good to him.

For a long term hold, Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS-T) or Toronto Dominion (TD-T)? Of these 2, he prefers the exposure to the US that TD has.

2015-02-06 COMMENT Chris Hensen

If the Canadian economy slows, it makes people a little concerned going on from here. Any time you have a bit of a blip in respect to credit related to the banks, it is sort of exacerbated. As a shareholder, you are not going to get hurt like you would in the US, but you can definitely feel it. He is a little concerned because the credit cycle has been very favourable for a long period of time. It is a cycle and it does come back. He is generally underweight banks and would want to wait before getting a little more comfortable.
