2017-10-19 COMMENT Andy Nasr

Hold this or buy a US bank instead?Had owned this, but owns US banks now. Because of BREXIT, there is no question that there is a certain amount of uncertainty. Thinks the EU is going to be very reluctant to allow the UK to get away with some favourable trade terms, as there may be an Italian political party that wants to separate also.

2017-10-13 COMMENT Darren Sissons

The overriding issue for them is that it is very much a UK centric story. In the context of a BREXIT, there is likely to be some downside on GDP growth for the UK economy, maybe 5% per year for 4 or 5 years until everything normalizes. Thereafter, there might be some growth. In the interim, you will likely see higher interest rates for banks, but you will see contracting earnings opportunities. You want to look at banks that have UK exposure, but also outside growth. He would suggest looking at HSBC Holdings (HSBC-N) or Banco Santander (SAN-N).

Over the past year, this has done quite well. They brought the dividend back and increased it. As a domestic UK bank, they are sticking to their knitting.

2017-09-11 WATCH Darren Sissons

Most global banks have been freshly recapitalized. The challenge is that you may be able to get it cheaper. They are starting to enter serious negotiations of BREXIT. The last substantive discussions was when the British pound sold off substantially. Watch the stock and watch for some currency weakness for the pound relative to the Cdn$. If it drops, take a real close look at it. This is a UK Centric story, so you won’t necessarily get a lot of benefit from loan growth across continental Europe, and you might have dead money for 2 years. In any case, it is a good solid story and rising interest rates will help.

2017-08-11 DON'T BUY Darren Sissons

There are a couple of things to think about. First of all, you’ve got BREXIT risk. The pound took a nasty drop 3 or 4 months ago. From a Cdn$ point of view that would have been a great opportunity. Right now, the pound has strengthened quite a bit and he doesn’t see this bank as an opportunity.

2017-08-09 COMMENT Paul Harris, CFA

Lloyds Bank (LYG-N) or ING Groep (ING-N)? Both did very well coming out of the chute from when they were partially nationalized by the British government. Management made this one more retail oriented and got rid of non-core businesses. This is probably a little more expensive than ING.

2017-06-05 COMMENT Jim McGovern

Lloyds (LYG-N) or ING (ING-N)? He would favour ING, the Dutch insurer, over Lloyds. In the UK, Lloyds has had a big restructuring coming out of the financial crisis, and clearly that is now behind it. The problem is the political and economic uncertainty background in the UK.

2017-04-20 DON'T BUY Mark Grammer

He has no exposure to the UK banks.  This one has excellent management, but he is concerned with the uncertainty with BREXIT.  He would prefer to stay away from UK banks.  BREXIT could be ugly for the UK.  He can find banks elsewhere to own.

2017-04-13 COMMENT Paul Harris, CFA

Primarily a retail bank in the UK. Sold off a lot of non-core assets. There are 2 things holding back the stock. The UK owns a position, and have to sell it off. Also, the stock ran up a lot and was well ahead of itself, so has pulled back. A great business and a great company and incredibly well run.

2017-04-10 WEAK BUY Gavin Graham

The government has just about sold its stake in this equity.  The underlying business was strong when the stock got wiped out.  Now that the government has got rid of its stake, it is doing pretty well.  The underlying business is doing quite well.  You might see some devaluation of the currency, however.

This has been in a bit of a turnaround situation. Loan growth is falling. Deposit growth is falling. Net interest income growth is plummeting. ROE is only at 5%. Dividend yield of 3.7%.

2017-03-08 COMMENT Paul Harris, CFA

A purely commercial/retail banker in the UK. They understand how to do retail very, very well. Secondly, they’ve exited a lot of their other businesses and became a solely UK bank. Very cost effective bank. Management is very strong and are going to continue to increase dividends. This is a great story.

2017-01-31 COMMENT Andy Nasr

When he thinks of financial exposure, he prefers US banks, as he expects an increase in consumer and corporate loan growth, which is necessary for the US economy to chug along in 2017-2018. Looking at some of the international banks, he worries that there is a lot of uncertainty, especially with BREXIT and the triggering of article 50 and the potential political risk in Europe with national elections happening in France and Germany.

2017-01-27 COMMENT Darren Sissons

Lloyds (LLOY-LN) and/or Barclays (BCS-N)? Some European banks will generally follow US banks up a couple of years later. When the US went into Armageddon, they lowered rates and exported capital, and that caused rates globally to go down. The Europeans with the UK raised rates within a year. So he thinks this will be the same, but if the US starts to raise rates aggressively, that could speed up the process where higher interest rates in Europe make sense. This bank just purchased the credit card business from NBNA, and that is going to be quite good for the stock. In a BREXIT context, this is effectively a domestic bank. If the returns are less because of lower currency, you might have some challenges. In both cases, you want to be a little careful. He would consider looking at Banco Santander (SAN-N), which survived relatively well during the crisis.

2016-12-30 BUY Paul Harris, CFA

Primarily a retail and commercial bank in the UK. The banking industry is changing quite dramatically, but this one has really made an effort to change the way they are thought about. This fell quite dramatically in 2008, and new management came in. A great franchise and thinks it was ahead of itself. You can buy it here and do well over the next little while.
