TOP PICK

Skinnier multiple compared to the others. Trades at 11x. Great numbers, but stock fell on uncertainty when acquisition was announced. Valuation and growth rate are good. You want to own banks in this environment, and this is his favourite. Yield is 3.61%. (Analysts’ price target is $156.72)

DON'T BUY
He likes 3 others better than BMO. It's done really well, making bold changes. Recently bid for a large US regional bank, strategically sound but pricey. The other banks don't have that risk.
banks
COMMENT
Doesn't own this one but he is a fan of Canadian banks. Bank of Montreal has just made the largest acquisition in Canadian history (16 billion dollars) - Bank of the West in the U.S. BMO is trading at 10.5 times earnings which is good. Hold for the long term.
banks
COMMENT
Done really good job growing US business. A lot of avenues for capital allocation (stock buybacks, raise dividend) Lots of capital (overcapitalized).
banks
COMMENT
Top Cdn Bank? TD and BMO are the two he recommends as they recently beat earnings expectations. He likes them both for their US growth opportunity. BMO raised their dividends significantly. Very safe stocks to hold.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Following recently reported earnings, we recommend BMO as a TOP PICK. Recent EPS beat analyst expectations by 3% and net income was up 38% over the year. Provisions for loan losses are declining, while loans and deposits are increasing. It has also approved a 22 million share buyback program. It trades at a fairly valued PE of 13x earnings and is just under 1.5x book value. It announced a 22% increase in the dividend, which is backed by a payout ratio under 40% of cash flow. We would buy this with a stop loss at $120, looking to achieve $184 -- upside potential over 33%. Yield 3.11% (Analysts’ price target is $183.87)

TOP PICK
Social media mentions are up 300% these past 24h preceding Q4 earnings preview. Canadian banks projected to enjoy good growth over 2022. Andrew Pyle recently reiterated it as a top pick.
banks
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 25/21, Up 107%) They came off a depressed environment, but held good momentum entering the summer. Canada will enjoy good growth into 2022. Solid. In March 2020, you did not want to sell banks and had to look forward to the recover. If you stayed with the banks including BMO, it paid off very well.
banks
PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Jul 09/21, Up 103%) Still a holder of BMO. Trimmed a little due to the valuation being quite high. Dividend yield is also being compressed. Investors are looking at banks for the anticipated dividend increases. Still owns it. When yields pop up to above 4%, they will buy back more.
banks
DON'T BUY

BMO vs. RY He'd favour RY over BMO. BMO has a large franchise in the US midwest. RY is more active in the east and south. RY is better managed, and that's why it has a higher valuation. Won't go too far wrong owning RY. RY is well positioned with their US footprint, as well as being the largest and most dominant player in Canada.

banks
BUY
Likes their US presence. The whole banking group will benefit as the economy improves. Canadian banks will likely release their reserves this year, which is a positive sign. When Covid passes, the banks will be allowed to raise dividends. This pays a fine dividend. A good long-term hold.
banks
TOP PICK
The banks are all benefitting from market sensitive fees like investment banking and yield curve. They are trading at 10.3x 2022. A good risk-reward play. Balance sheet looks good. They will buy back their shares or increase their dividends in the coming months. (Analysts’ price target is $118.89)
banks
PARTIAL BUY
Still positive on the banking sector. PE multiple is still attractive. Start picking at it and building a position.
banks
TOP PICK
Boring but you don't need to make things harder than they need to be. Banks have been trading below their historical multiple. They tend to do well in recovery, higher interest rates and steepening yield curve. Banks haven't been able to increase dividends or buy back stocks but this should change soon. BMO has good business mix and has beat expectations consistently. Trading at 9.9x 2022 versus peers who are 0.5 multiple points higher. Price to growth, this stock makes a lot of sense. (Analysts’ price target is $116.17)
banks
HOLD
He doesn't own this one, but hard-pressed to go too far wrong owning any of the big 6 banks. 4-5% dividend yield, which grows at high single digits most years. Credit losses are behind them. Net interest margins still under pressure, but banks earn their way through whatever the economy throws at them.
