(A Top Pick Nov 30/17, Up 0.1%) It's tread water as the overall markets have been down the past year. It pays a 4% dividend which consistently grows 7%. Good returns over the course of a cycle, though maybe not every year.

A core holding. RY is the dominant Canadian bank (commercial and personal) and has the premier wealth management franchise. Insurance and investor/treasury services business nicely round out their operations. They're also nicely diversified by geography, such as the U.S. A leader in e-banking and an emerging leader in A.I. They can build a sustainable, competitive advantage with their large scale of operations. They can sustain their 4% dividend and 7% increase. (Analysts’ price target is $110.48)

Banks have taken a bit of a hit recently in the market, as people moved away from equities. Last quarter was excellent. He prefers TD because of the US holdings, but you could buy any of the banks now. 2% growth is good for the banks. (Analysts’ price target is $110.00)

Negative push towards Canada from outside (housing levels, debt), and this includes the banks. But he’s positive on Canadian banks, they earn a lot of money. If housing does decline, those profits let banks weather the storm. Trade at good values, good profits, dividends are safe and valuable in times of market volatility. If you have a position already, you can afford to nibble away at it.

As a long-term play in a TFSA? Great, because of its good fundamentals. It's been unfairly penalized by the market lately. It is exposed to the U.S., which is good. Fine valuation.

All Canadian banks are cheap now. There are concerns about Canadian debt levels effecting housing, but there are steps taken to cool that down. Valuations are very low. RY has a lot of deposits and good U.S. prescence, many levers to pull. TD, RY and BMO is how he'd rank the banks and you can buy them all now at these levels.

Rising rates are generally good for the banks. If you are a medium to long term investor, you could be comfortable buying any of the Canadian banks. He does like Royal. They have made some strategic investments into the US market. You will get dividend yield and some growth potential.

Yes, the Canadian banks have dropped in the past month, given rising interest rate fears, but he would hold on for the long-term. Compared to a decade ago, the banks are well-capitalized. Yes, fintech could disrupt the banking industry, but the banks are aggressive in exploring this area. RY's dividend is safe. RY's ROE may slip a bit, but it's still generous. If anything, buy instead of selling RY and Canadian banks.

The Canadian banks are value creators. RY is the granddaddy of them all. Ignore the short-term pullbacks and consider 5 years or more. RY will eventually rise above $150. The banks always grow their dividends around 5-7% annually. RY is the leading capital markets business and commercial and personal bank in Canada as well as wealth management. They have a good U.S. business. If you bought this recently before the correction, just hold on.

Great bank, though he owns more of TD, because of its U.S. exposure. RY is extremely well-managed. You can't go wrong owning it. But if RY is too big a part of your portfolio, sell some of it and buy a U.S. bank like JPM. Note: Canadian dividends pay better dividends and benefit from Canada's dividend tax credit, whereas you're taxed more on U.S. banks. He sees more upside with American banks, but check with your accountant and advisor about the taxes first. Otherwise, but another Canadian bank.

(Past Top Pick, Nov. 30, 2017, Up 5%) The TSX is up only 1% YTD, which shines a light on the importance of income stocks. He still likes RY. They put up good numbers recently, like growing earnings by 13%. Their wealth management sector is on fire. U.S. operations are doing well. They're investing into tech--in digital platforms--and taking a long-term view. This is good.

They like the bank at this level. It has only gone up about 1.5% year to date. Earnings have come in better than expected, reporting an increase of 11 or 12% in the last quarter. They’ve raised their dividend. About 25% of their revenues come from the US and growth from services to high net worth individuals is coming through. She expects dividends to increase proportionately to earnings, about 10% this year. Yield 3.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $111.75)
