2017-02-09 BUY John Petrides

Financials are his favourite.  This is his favourite large cap finance and has been for some time.  It is trending at a discount to its book value.  Stick it away for the long term and don’t follow it on a daily basis.

2017-02-06 TOP PICK Brian Acker, CA

He loves US banks.  These banks are way overcapitalized.  They were levered 19 times previously and are only just under 8 times here.  They have a massive amount of capital to use in loans or return to shareholders.  Dividends are peanuts.  His model price is $66.23, a 15% upside. (Analysts’ target: $64.43).

He likes it.  Finally conditions are coming together to let them break out into higher ground.  They have good upside, and a lot of it.

This has done well and is still cheap. One of the more international players. Dividend yield of 1.06%. (Analysts’ price target is $63.96.)

2017-01-05 TOP PICK Brian Acker, CA

US banks have not done anything for three years or more.  2009 was a low, but long term they have been trading sideways.  Since election night a lot of these stocks have literally come alive. His model price is $66.61, or an 8.5% upside, but he would ignore that.  The dividend has been severely repressed.  He sees them substantially increasing them.  (Analysts’ Target: $63.07).

2016-12-30 COMMENT Paul Harris, CFA

Bank of America (BAC-N) or Citigroup (C-N)? He prefers Bank of America because they have done a very good job of exiting low margin businesses. Also, they have a very strong retail franchise in the US.

This and BAC-N are both great companies.  Of all the money center banks these are the ones that got into the most trouble during the financial crisis.

2016-12-15 COMMENT David Driscoll

To add to his TD holdings?The biggest risk most investors make is concentration risk, having all your eggs in one basket. Since you already own Toronto Dominion, there is absolutely no reason to buy another US bank. He would suggest you look at FirstCash (FCFS-N) instead.

2016-12-13 BUY David Burrows

US banks have averaged trading at about 2X BV. For many years, they have traded at 3 and 3.5 times Book Value. BV has been depressed, because people have been very conservative in valuing their loan books, because of all the regulations. This bank has 29,000 compliance officers. The billions of dollars that have been layered in because of the Dodd Frank and the new regulation, is enormous. These of the types of companies that can double, and you are not taking a ton of risk. They are under owned by institutional investors. This should be a big part of portfolios in the current market. (See Top Picks.)

2016-12-08 COMMENT Jim Huang

Financials in the US have done very well recently because of the belief of higher interest rates and deregulation. This is a bit higher on the risk level, but if you believe in the long-term future, it is a more leveraged name to play. In the 1st quarter of 2017, you might see a better buying opportunity.

2016-12-07 TOP PICK James Thorne

This is cheap compared to tangible book. Investors should be looking at things that have been left behind and are cheap. Don’t buy the rich ones, buy the cheap ones. This is trading at a tangible book of about .75, and has a long way to go. You can buy this below where it was in the middle of 2015. It is about to make a 52-week high and break out. Dividend yield of 1.1%. (Analysts’ price target is $59.70.)

2016-12-06 TOP PICK Brian Acker, CA

In the last 4 years, the Fed has been restraining the banks from even increasing their dividend. If the banks do well, America will do well. This is a long-term secular story. There is a lot of runway in terms of expansion of their earnings if interest rates go up and they can re-lever their balance sheets. Dividend yield of 1.11%. (Analysts’ price target is $59.70.)

2016-12-05 COMMENT Alex Ruus

One of the largest banks in the US, and in the world. This sector is probably a good area to be involved in for the next year or so. US banks were under a bit of pressure with a slower than expected rise in rates. Now, with a Trump victory, the prospects are for slightly faster growth. Has a relatively low dividend level, but it is a safe dividend and you are likely to see increases in the coming years.

2016-11-29 BUY John Petrides

Has liked this for a long time. It has had an enormous run over the last 6 months, along with the entire US banking Centre. Only trading at about tangible BV, but still at a discount to the other larger cap US banks. Management has done a very, very good job of keeping the company focused, by shedding underperforming international and domestic assets. Their balance sheet is rock solid. They passed the US Fed stress test the last 2 years, and are returning cash to shareholders. In a rising interest rate environment with a healthy balance sheet and the potential for Trump to deregulate the banking system somewhat, this is a great play.

2016-11-28 TOP PICK John Stephenson

Trading below Book, which is $65, so you have some upside. Trading at a very low multiple. Had a great run lately, but thinks it goes much higher. It is into a multi-year turnaround story. CEO is one of the best. This is going to be an increasingly ROC story. You are attaching it at exactly the right time, where rates are going higher, growth is returning to the market, and you may have less of a regulatory overburden which had just killed the banks. Dividend yield of 1.15%. (Analysts’ price target is $58.26.)
