Great way for an individual to get exposure to the whole financial sector. You would get about 2 third banks and a third insurance. Can see a return in the low double digits in the next year, which would be better than the market. As an entry point, wait for a seasonal bottom in the next three weeks.

Likes the sector. It is now back to break even for the year. In a melt down, to break even is not a bad thing.

A good way to be in the financial services sector. Two periods of seasonal strength for this sector. End of September to end of December and the end of February to end of May. Earnings picture has some concerns. Bank of Nova Scotia is good but other banks are less attractive. Loan losses may rise and narrowing interest rate spreads.

A good way for a small investor to be in the golds. To own bullion, consider the Central Fund of Canada.

Prefers buying individual securities rather than indexes. Favourites are Canadian Bank of Commerce and Bank of Nova Scotia.

The banks have outperformed the TSX index for every decade since the war. Beaten down to 11 1/2 X next year's earnings. Should a decent growth and dividend growth.
