BAC vs. Canadian banks Prefers the Canadian banks. They over-reserved on Covid losses, so there should be some earnings recovery in 2021-22. This hasn't happened with the US banks. Regulators still hate the US banks because of 2008. Canada is a cleaner environment for banks, and any of them would do.

He owns the big American banks. BAC has more of a retail operation than its investment. They did a good job turning around with its acquisitions. Well-positioned. They've held back in paying their dividends because of restrictions, and can't increase dividends or do buybacks. Overall, though, the banks are in good shape. He's been adding to his holding.

All the US banks are faced with a question of credit quality. How many defaults will there be? We don't know. But the banks are cheap, between 11-15x earnings, with a dividend. Hard to tell if the reserves will be enough. One strategy might be to buy 2 or 3, instead of just one. The sector is undervalued right now.

What is BAC's exposure to CLOs and is it risky? CLO: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Collateralized_loan_obligation Doesn't know if they have an above-average exposure to CLOs, but why own any US bank now? What will happen to loan losses and low interest rates? Banks don't do well with low rates, unless the rates rise, but he doesn't see that happening, at least not much higher than present.

It will be a difficult environment for banks for a moment. It depends on the recovery and how the pandemic plays out. You can't expect too much from banks right now. Looking at the medium term, 5-10 years, it is positive.

BAC vs. JPM Both incredible companies. All bank stocks are trading at a substantial discount. JPM pays a nice dividend, and trades at a bit of a premium. BAC trades at 0.8x book. Both well run.

Stockchase Editor: Michael O'Reilly When Warren Buffet is a buyer, the market takes notice. He just purchased another $1.2 billion worth of shares at an average of around $24 over the past week. For arguably the strongest major US bank, BAC pays a good dividend that will certainly be sustainable, given only a 24% payout ratio. Analysts see over 15% upside in the share price. Knowing how the Oracle of Omaha invests, he might be targeting a return to even more lofty targets, near $36 -- the level it traded pre-pandemic. We also like the technical up trend of higher lows and would hold this unless it takes out key support around $22.50. Yield 2.85% (Analysts’ price target is $28.57)

A CLO is an off-balance sheet vehicle. In 2008, they were problematic. BAC has exposure, and so they could pay off or they could become toxic. One reason to sell banks coming up to a recession and buy on recovery.

(A Top Pick Aug 15/19, Down 6%) The US banks will face tough quarters with higher loan loss provisions. But BAC is well diversified. The 3.5% dividend will be safe and will still buyback shares. It's cheap at these levels, according to book value for instance. The CEO is doing the right things in cutting costs by moving a lot more of their business onto the cloud. Headwinds are already baked into the share price.

A lot of negative sentiment has been out there regarding banks. BAC is a strong business, he favours JPM. They are both well diversified and have good valuations. The US banks were cleansed of the their toxic assets back in 2008-09. He would buy both.
