BUY on WEAKNESS
They have had a good run. The dividend is safe. It has some international exposure which adds some volatility. These are good opportunities to add to the banks. Some banks have a lot of room to raise dividends.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Dec 04/20, Up 18%) It lags its peers, but is selling at a discount based on a lower price-to book at 1.4x, yet paying a 4.5% dividend. Good to buy at current prices. The banks will do well when they can raise dividends and buyback shares again.

DON'T BUY

A premier bank. Biggest problem is heavily invested in Latin America and the Caribbean, which brings volatility. If this was a time to get aggressively with EMs, you'd lean toward BNS. As a proxy, he'd be more interested in RY and TD. The US is the highest growth economy right now.

banks
TOP PICK

It's the cheapest (in valuation) and pays the highest dividend among the banks. It has a strong 12-month outlook, at least two strong quarters ahead. (LB-T is also cheap.) (Analysts’ price target is $86.38)

banks
BUY
They beat numbers today, including mortgage loans and investment management businesses. All the Canadian banks are flush with capital. He expects the regulatory to eventually buyback shares and raise dividends, and stocks will rise. Banks are putting those pandemic reserves into earnings. BNS will do well, especially with buybacks and dividend raises.
banks
COMMENT

Owns these two banks. BNS is Canadian and Latin America, where as RBC is Canada and US. Likes BNS's exposure to Latin America. Currently under covid, it is being more hurt. The stock is lagging here because of this. RBC is doing better due to Canada and US doing better. Over the long term, RBC is the stronger and better bank, but both are good choices.

banks
TOP PICK
Canadian banks have generally moved higher but in the short term they tend to play leapfrog. In recent years other have leapt ahead. (Analysts’ price target is $86.15)
banks
COMMENT

In general for the Canadian banks have done pretty well over the last years. For banks, lower interest rates make it hard for banks to make higher profits. Fees are higher and higher. Financial space could be challenging. Normalization will be good for financials. Banks are now fairly or over valued now. They will grow their earnings.

banks
HOLD
It is the most international of the Canadian banks. A catalyst to make something really good happen would be if two Canadian banks merged. There is not much room for them to grow otherwise.
banks
COMMENT
Cannot talk about BNS because he works there. However, likes all the banks and thinks they will all work here.
banks
TOP PICK
In a transformation to digital by investing in wealth business acuiqistions. International exposure is being retooled too. Likes it in general since banks have tail winds like yield curve steepening, ability to buy back stocks again, etc. One of the cheaper banks. The wealth business is showing good returns. Good value and volatility measures. (Analysts’ price target is $80.45)
banks
BUY
Banks are in a sweet spot now. BNS has held reserves very well during Covid; he expects these reserves to come off and go to the bottom line. Their issue was that their international banking was down a lot in revenues, however, but will improve in coming quarters with better growth. They're weaker in investment banking than, say, RY, but they should benefit from the general environment in retail banking and wealth management. People are worried about the Canadian mortgage industry and the hot housing market in Toronto and Vancouver, but he doesn't foresee the same problems as in the States when it comes to shaky mortgages. Mortgages have been a great business for banks for the last 60 years.
banks
TOP PICK
Emerging markets are more volatile than developed markets. This is the most globally ambitious of the Canadian banks. The return on equity is lower than their peers and should be boosted this year. Their credit provisions last years were quite large compared to others but should face easy comparisons this year. He thinks the regulators will free them up later this year to increase dividends and possibly buy back shares. (Analysts’ price target is $80.41)
