2017-05-23 COMMENT David Burrows

Brookfield Infrastructure (BIP.UN-T) or Bank of Nova Scotia (BNS-T) for better growth? Financials is a group that he has been in favour of for some time, but prefers US to Canadian. All banks will benefit if we wind up in a rate rise cycle, but Canadian banks probably less likely. If he had to buy one of these 2, he would probably buy Brookfield Infrastructure.

2017-05-15 TOP PICK Bruce Campbell (1)

Canadian banks have all been affected by Home Capital (HCG-T), and this is now back to an average valuation. It is 50% international and 50% Canadian, so you don’t have to worry about the US president doing anything crazy. They are really starting to get their act together in the last few quarters in a couple of the South American countries. The stock has had a 10% pullback, Dividend yield of 4%. (Analysts’ price target is $85.)

TD-T vs. BNS-T.  He has a small exposure to the Canadian banking sector, but is more exposed to the Canadian insurance sector.  His preference is BNS-T because it has the smallest footprint in Canada.  A lot of growth is dependent on capital markets.  TD-T has a big US exposure and he likes that, but these are not his choice.

2017-04-28 PAST TOP PICK Michael Sprung

(A Top Pick June 2/16. Up 21%.) This bank has had tremendous focus on cost control, as well as technology development, over the last few years. The new CEO has made them more competitive in a modern environment. The most internationally diversified of all the Canadian banks. It has great exposure to South America, so if there is an uptick in materials, etc., that will do very well for them. Still a Buy. (See Top Picks.)

2017-04-27 BUY on WEAKNESS Mohsin Bashir

Banks are not cheap.  This is one of the cheaper ones because its return on equity is stronger than other banks because it is the most international banks of the family.  It is driving higher returns on equity than other banks.  This is not a bad one to be picking away at.

2017-04-21 PAST TOP PICK Greg Newman

(A Top Pick May 4/16. Up 28%.) Had felt this was the cheapest of the Canadian banks, had the best opportunity, and was less understood. It has very good growth. Emerging markets are turning.

2017-04-19 COMMENT Bruce Murray

A pretty good exposure in Latin America, where the growth rates are higher. Probably a little riskier, but probably will grow a little better. The regulatory environment in Canada has been so good for so long. In his career, all the US banks have gone bankrupt at some point.

2017-03-17 PAST TOP PICK Michael Sprung

(A Top Pick Feb 4/16. Up 43%.) Still one of his core holdings in the banks. Even though it has gone up so much, it is still earning around 3.8% in yield. It is internationally diversified. If the economy picks up, to what people are hoping, South America will begin to do very well.

2017-03-14 BUY Kash Pashootan

This has global exposure, and is a good way to get exposure to global markets. In 2015, it was the worst performer amongst Canadian banks, and was tied with National Bank (NA-T) as the best performer in 2016. If you are thinking 5-10 years out, having this as part of your overall exposure to financials makes sense.

2017-03-03 PAST TOP PICK David Cockfield

(A Top Pick March 4/16. Up 39.32%.) This falls in and out of favour, but you have to recognize that Canada is a little bit dull at the moment, so you want somebody that has got assets in faster growing areas, and this is what this bank has. (See Top Picks.)

2017-02-10 COMMENT Norman Levine

The only bank he owns, and it is because he wants their exposure in the emerging markets, Latin America and Asia. Also, he wants a smaller exposure in Canada, because he thinks the housing market in many areas is overextended and the Canadian consumer is way overextended.

2017-02-07 BUY Gerard Ferguson

All Canadian banks are in a great position. They are in a very protected market in Canada. None are expensive and have all suffered from years of declining interest rates. We are now starting to see a trend toward higher rates in the US that will filter into Canada at some point. That net interest margin they will get exposure to, will start to grow, and profits will grow as a result. This bank has more exposure to emerging markets (Latin America), and there is a threat from the US because of the protectionist policies. Not a name he would be concerned about.

2017-01-26 BUY Mike S. Newton, CIM FCSI

Affect of the trade war between the US and Mexico? Mexico’s earnings for this bank were between $350 million and $385 million over the last 4 years, so it was not as big as people might think. There are a lot of things working well for Canadian banks, and this bank is going to be a big benefactor from that.

2017-01-05 COMMENT Douglas Kee

About half the banks’ revenues and businesses are retail in Canada, which is a cash cow. This bank’s strategy is international retail in Mexico, South America, etc. International retail is a higher margin business than domestic retail, but it is also more volatile. This is a core holding for him. (See Top Picks.)
