Likes the large, multi-centre banks. BAC is in the sweet spot, as it's the most sensitive to a steeper yield curve. The longer end is rising, and the Fed doesn't have as much control over this. The spread is rising, so the banks can make more money on interest income. Stay with it.

10% of all U.S. deposits is with BAC. Net interest income is lower because of very low interest rates though is stabilizing. It trades at 1.1x book and pays a 2.3% dividend. Has a great balance sheet, and credit card, investment banking and wealth management businesses. They've done a good job cutting costs. The CEO steered them out of the difficult post-2009 era. Banking cost structures will change a lot in coming years due to blockchain. (Analysts’ price target is $35.69)

It pulled back 3% Friday, but doesn't expect it to much after it reports next week. US banks need to deliver a blow-out to impress investors. A simple beat isn't enough.

Not cheap, at 11x earnings. CEO is undervalued. He's brought costs in line and improved retail side by spending on tech. In that sweet spot to take advantage of virtual banking. Great wealth management, credit card, and retail franchise businesses. Will continue to grow. Yield is 2.41%. (Analysts’ price target is $30.00)

Trend of falling rates was not favourable to banks. Times are changing. Rotation towards cyclicality. Some inflation is coming. Fed can control the short end of the curve, but not so much the long end. BAC is most sensitive to a steep yield curve. Just be patient. Good spot to be.

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.
