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.

BMO or BNS? He slightly favours BNS. But BMO is still a good company. All the top 5 Canadian banks are solid. BMO may lag behind is some areas. At these prices, both are good value.

He didn't understand their U.S. strategy though he does now. Even still, BMO doesn't stand out to him. It's his least-favourite Canadian bank and hasn't owned it for years. Look at BNS or TD instead (he owns them).

This is too big for him, since he invests in small/mid-caps. Canadian consumers are levered up, so he doesn't buy Canadian banks. He prefers TD.

Their highs and lows are getting higher, which is good. It's better-run than, say, CIBC. Seasonality is coming for Canadian banks. He expects BMO is hit its $109 high.

He is comfortable with most of the companies in the financial sector right now. He likes BNS, then Royal, then TD and then BMO and CIBC. You could own any one of them or an ETF that has all of them.

BMO is third on their list. They have done a great job of building their US franchise. They are not trading at an expensive multiple. Room for these to tread water or move higher and collect the dividend. The bigger concern is looking out 2 – 3 years to see where the growth is going to come from.

He likes banks in general. If you look at banks, 80% of their return since 2010 have come on the second half of the year. There are signs of stability in Canadian housing markets. This one has better growth prospects than its peers and in line valuations. ROE is the highest its been in 4 years. Relatively drama-free. (Analysts’ price target is $111.26)

They own Royal Bank (RY-T) and TD (TD-T). They changed the CEO recently. It has done a good job in the last while. The problem with Canadian Banks is the they are not as cheap as the US banks. The good thing is that they continue to grow their dividends and are very well capitalized. Owning here it is fine. Great ROE.

He does not own any Canadian banks. He looks at the level of consumer leverage and the economy. They have been good stocks over the long term but he thinks going forward there are better opportunities to invest money.

TD-T vs. BMO-T. Canadian banks have been underperforming the US. There are still some challenges here in Canada, such as less interest rate increases. The changes in real estate laws are still working through the market place. He would underweight Canadian banks.

They increased their dividend. U.S. operations are attractive and they are expanding them. Better U.S. growth helps them. A good stock. Ranks BMO #4 of the big Canadian banks after TD, RBC and SB.

Long-term investors who have just held Canadian banks have made out like bandits. They’ve compounded rates of double digits and dividend growth, and he doesn't see that ending. Canadian banks should trade at more than 13X earnings. The overall market is trading at 19X earnings. He likes Canadian banks and feels you should overweight them in your portfolio.

The worst performing bank in a year is a good one the following year. It has decent US exposure. He favours US banks so if you want US exposure from a Canadian bank this would be a good one.

You should be fine owning this. It is not his preferred Canadian bank. If he had to choose, he would probably pick Toronto Dominion (TD-T) or Royal (RY-T) because of the big exposure to the US. All the metrics on this bank look okay, but he would choose more US financials.
