DON'T BUY
Got stung by low forecasts. Margin spreads are suffering. Not one of his favourites. Sector is cheap, but he's still not being aggressive. Inverted yield curve is not good for banks.

BUY
Allan Tong’s Discover Picks BMO’s EPS growth is rising faster than its peers, specifically nearly 100% in the past year. BMO shares trade at only 7.3x earnings compared to TD’s 10.7x and Royal’s 11.1x. BMO’s profit margin and ROE tick higher, too. Only BMO’s dividend lags its peers, paying merely 4.3%, though it boasts the lowest payout ratio at 26.31%. Read 3 Long-Term Stocks to Buy and Hold for our full analysis.

HOLD
Acquisitions sometimes take a long time to integrate. No news on Bank of the West may mean everything's going well. Not his first choice in the group, but reasonably priced. Fairly good dividend yield of over 4%.
banks
BUY
Sell half of NA to buy BMO? This trade makes sense. Canadian banks have been under pressure given economic slowdown. All the banks grow earnings nicely and return excess capital to shareholders via buybacks and dividends. BMO has done a great job with Bank of the West acquisition. He's tilting toward more US exposure, as the US consumer is in better shape and the economy is less reliant on housing.
banks
BUY on WEAKNESS
Core holding, though sometimes you want more or less exposure. In an economic slowdown, as he expects this year, you want to pare back. He owns RY, TD, BMO, and BAM.A. Each has unique aspects that make for good diversification within the sector. Pullbacks provide an opportune chance to buy, put them away, and collect some income. Strong, sustainable, competitive advantages. Strong compounders over time.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 26/22, Down 5%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with BMO has triggered its stop at $132. To remain disciplined, we recommend covering the position at this time. This will result in a net investment loss of 5%, when combined with the previous top pick recommendation.
banks
WEAK BUY
BMO vs. CM BMO completing 16B acquisition in the US. BMO has a much larger presence in the US, whereas CM has the larger presence in Canada. CM has been the faster grower, and he favours it. Execution risk with BMO, especially in a tough market. CM has the better opportunity, but he doesn't knock BMO.
banks
HOLD
Banks have pulled back about 10%. Yield is now average, BNS and CM and TD have higher yields. Not his first choice. But all the Big 6 are very strong institutions and will do well over time. If you own it, hold.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We again reiterate BMO as a TOP PICK. As one of Canada's largest chartered banks, it trades at 11x earnings, compared to peers at 14x. Next year's earnings project a PE closer to 7x. Latest earnings beat expectations by 15%, supporting a ROE of 15%. It has a great dividend, backed by a payout ratio under 35% of cash flow. We are recommending giving the stop a little more room down to $132 (from $138 presently) given current market insecurities. We look for upside potential towards $163 -- 17% upside potential. Yield 3.76% (Analysts’ price target is $162.63)
banks
BUY
Attractive dividend yield that should increase. Recent major US acquisition will expand presence in high-growth California. Equity issue to fund that purchase. US growth will fund future growth. Long-term hold for appreciation.
banks
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Apr 16/21, Up 34%) At the time, cheap compared to its peers. Getting pricey. Another 2-3 innings left. His firm was part of the share issuance yesterday.
banks
TRADE
It is at all time highs and is in the middle of the banks pack. It is still good and he still holds banks. We could see some weakness in the sector so be cautious.
banks
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Mar 12/21, Up 41%) Some uncertainty as it may have to raise capital since is buying Bank of the West, therefore possibility of stock issue. Dividend is up 25% and it has announced a nice buyback. Would add at $143. It is now at $149.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Dec 07/21, Up 9.8%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with BMO is progressing well. We now recommend trailing up the stop (from $120) to $138.
banks
SELL
Exited BMO on valuation. Canadian banking sector has been a great place to be, oligopoly. "Hates" being a customer, but loves being an owner. All in excellent shape. Sector is a core holding in his Canadian strategy.
