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.

They've had trouble growing internationally, but that's improving. He prefers TD and RY, whcih have more American exposure, but BMO's valuation is in line with its peers. BMO has struggled to perform and he doesn't know why.

He holds some small amounts of this stock. All the banks in Canada have a negative bias towards the pessimism in Canadian real estate. The dividend is safe. They are expanding the US mid-west and they are doing well there. A good long term investment at these levels. Yield 4.2%

Last fall, it got hit especially hard to $90, but has rebounded to around $105. Has the richest valuation of the big 5. But they are doing a great job. They're a steady eddy, not doing acquisitions, and sticking to their core business--and that's fine. He sold BMO and bought CIBC because it pays a higher divdend. Otherwise, you can hold this.

Just sold his holding yesterday. Still likes financials, but prefers insurance or mixed use like Fairfax. Seasonality and headlines re housing mean banks are a bit of dead money. Better use of money elsewhere. Short-term, downside risk is about $95.

Rotation from small-cap banks into large ones? He doesn't see a correlation. BMO itself was the highest flyer in 2018 until it got hit hard in Q4, and now it's back in the middle of the big 5 Canadian banks. He's been gradually selling off BMO (he owns 4 of the 5 banks). BMO is executing well in capital markets and the U.S., but its valuation in neutral.
