Valuation
Fair Value
BUY
Bank of Montreal

Owns shares and will continue to hold. Strong brand name with oligopoly (6 banks in Canada). Very steady profits and solid customer base. Not overly exposed to rising interest rates. Recent M&A continues to go well. Share price weakness a good time to buy. Dividend very safe, and expected to rise. Also a moderate rate of capital gains. Would recommend buying.

"Higher for longer" interest rates hard on business. Not expecting growth from Canadian banking sector. Would recommend buying at cheap price. Expecting company to turnaround eventually. Strong assets and brand name for the long term investor.

HOLD
Bank of Montreal

She holds, but not as core holding. Had to increase loan loss provisions in US last quarter, and 2 consecutive quarters of that was not well received. Loan growth is slowing along with economy. Acquisition will work out long term. Doesn't see Canadian economy going into recession, so rate cuts should help. Yield is 5%.

PARTIAL BUY
Bank of Montreal

His favourite. He's overweight BMO versus the other banks. Likes expansion in the US, well positioned for growth. Results a bit disappointing on integration side, but confident in management to realize synergies. Stock's come down way too much, good time to start picking away.

COMMENT
Bank of Montreal

It is the only big bank she doesn't own. Canadian banks recently announced disappointing returns, especially BMO. It trades at a premium valuation to its peers, so there are premium expectations. Also its assets in the Mid-West are giving weak returns as well. She likes Royal and TD.

BMO is still reeling from its weak recent quarterly report. It is now 10.8X earnings, down 12.5% YTD. With some other banks below 10X earnings, we think it could go there too. This would imply about $111 or so.

Large exposure to commercial loan portfolio. Overall, a quality business that can weather economic storm. If interest rates rise will determine future of business. If interest rates fall - will be good for business. 2025/26 mortgage renewals will be interesting to watch. Would recommend holding shares in company. Would recommend investors "hold".

COMMENT
Bank of Montreal

Banks are a good long term investment but you don't have to own all the banks. Bank of Montreal has the largest exposure to commercial banking so it could be a recessionary risk. He wants more stability in a bank so he owns Royal, TD and National.

HOLD
Bank of Montreal

Current yield ~5% - good offer for investors. Valuation attractive for investors. Canadian banks generally a safe option. Good place for defensive investors. Not huge growth.

WEAK BUY
Bank of Montreal

If you're going to buy in the space, BMO and RY are the two to consider. Accretion from acquisitions is working for both. BMO is 2 points cheaper. Still, he'd rather go with insurance -- MFC first, IFC second.

DON'T BUY
Bank of Montreal

They bought Bank of the West, synergistic for pooling resources and adding assets. BMO is the more commercial bank in Canada vs. peers. A great bank, but commercial banking is volatile when the economy is weak. He prefers other banks like RY and TD for their stability.

COMMENT
Bank of Montreal

The question was on his preference for the two banks. Both have international operations with BMO focused more in the U.S. and BNS more in Latin America. He prefers BMO. Now is not the time to buy BNS but watch it over the next four quarters,
