Tough year for the banks. Q4 will be released in a few weeks, and you never know what you're going to get. Brighter days are ahead, and the market's already figured that out. BMO is not his favourite. Prefers National, TD, Royal. You'll do fine with the Canadian banks. Some concerns around fintech. Low interest rates will be a problem, but offset by recovering economy. Good time to add for dividend seekers.

Going forward, Canadian banks will face low interest rates for quite some time, as well as a struggling economy. Government won't allow mass credit losses. Banks will muddle along, you get your dividend. Not one of his favourite banks. He'd rather be in TD as his first choice.

You can buy any of the banks here in Canada. They have under-performed the general market. His favourites are RY-T and TD-T. He likes US banks right now, also.

Banks are lining up to take massive loan losses due to the shutdown. He thinks we will see a recovery in stock values. He likes the exposure to the US. He likes the dividend and it offers a better opportunity in terms of getting into the market at this point. He thinks the banks are undervalued. (Analysts’ price target is $75.98)

At this particular point in time, he wouldn't put fresh capital in the bank sector. They are near their high. A good company but a little too rich. He would wait a few weeks or month to participate in any of the banks.

BNS vs. BMO He prefers BNS, though their last report disappointed. Their credit did hold up well; capital positions are strong. BMO just reported this morning. BNS pays a slightly higher yield. PB is identical. BNS will enjoy a better upside given its Latin American operations, whereas BMO is focussed on North America. Both are buys.

How big is their real estate exposure? A good bank for sure. Real Estate is studied internally to evaluate overall exposure. Don't worry too much about where they are concentrated, the banks have been doing this for over 170 years.

His favorite Canadian bank is RY. However both RY and BMO are investing in technology, which should allow them to continue growing dividends. No problem buying BMO or RY here.

The banks as a group are becoming more attractive. He's watching them as housing stats look stronger. They're great to hold long-term. Valuations in the single-digits are compelling. Wait for a good entry point.

Hold these companies. They can continue to increase the dividends. BMO-T is his least favourite of the big 5 right now. Their US business is not as stable as TD-T's. This is the one he has been trimming recently.

This and TD-T are not two of the banks he not is invested in. You always have to look at what businesses they are in. Both grew significantly in the US. He prefers BMO-T over TD-T because it has less premium to book value than TD-T is selling at.

Great franchise in the US, but not as good as TD's. Canadian franchise has always lagged TD and Royal. Canadian banks are suffering due to real estate and debt worries. Great dividend, can own for the long term, an oligopoly. Prefers the other two.

The Canadian banks are very cheap now, but net interest margins are a headwind. He sees 5% EPS growth with a decent dividend. Toronto's housing report in July had an uptick, which is encouraging. BMO has some US exposure, but he prefers TD and RY given more US exposure.

His 4th or 5th choice among Canadian banks. It isn't special. Their recent American acquisition went okay for them. BMO is merely okay. He has no problem with the sector though.
