The most international bank, great exposure to South America and Mexico. Last year was tense with the trade negotiations. Valuation isn't at a premium anymore. Compelling buy now. Has been investing heavily in changes brought on by technology. Yield is 4.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $81.88)

(A Top Pick Jan 17/18, Down 10%) Didn't pay off last year, but none of the banks did. Likes it because they deployed a lot of capital.

Has been a core holding for many years. Confidence is as strong as ever with the recent reset in the valuations. Canada's third largest bank. Most globally ambitious, with established footprint in Mexico and South America. Have been making acquisitions. Internal efficiency levers to pull. Earnings grow about 7% compounded over last 5 years. Should continue to outperform the TSX, which it's done for last 17/25 years. Yield is 4.8%. (Analysts’ price target is $82.00)

BNS-T vs. BAC-N. He owns the Canadian banks. Most of the US banks have been bankrupt in his career. Canadian banks are better regulated. You might make more money in the US within a couple of years but not after 5 years.

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.

The Canadian banks are very cheap today. An oligopolistic structure, which produces over 40% return on their domestic banking business. It trades under 10 times 2019 PE. It is bulking up in its international asset management business, especially into Latin America. Yield 5%. (Analysts’ price target is $82.15)

The worst Canadian bank performer last year. Usually, the worst bank in one year does well the next. BNS does worse when there are international worries (like China now). BNS does a good job and its ROE is good for the first time in a while. Likely, BNS will rise with its Canadian peers.

Bought as part of a trading pattern, but it's broken support. So you wait for a rally back up to support, and then you decide if it can break through or you have to sell it. If it looks as though everything is going down, you look for opportunities to sell.

(A Top Pick Dec 06/17, Down 13%) BNS had problems early this year with acquisitions, but long-term these purchases made sense (money manager in Canada and Latin America). They likley paid too much, but markets always say this. It's been the best performing Canadian banks since summer. All banks will see 5-7% growth.

CM-T vs. BNS-T. It depends on your appetite for volatility and your expectations for returns. CNQ-T is a bet on oil. SU-T is more defensive but with less upside if you get the timing right on the price of oil. SU-T has a good opportunity to step in.

This bank has the skills to operate in growth areas like the Caribbean and Central America that are superior to most of North America. NAFTA is going to be positive for Mexico, where BNS is the second largest bank. Recently got out of problem areas in Caribbean. Expanded into South America, and management has lots of experience. Stock is extremely cheap, so it's the best buy right now. Yield is 4.7%. (Analysts’ price target is $82.54)

Likes it longer term, doesn't like it on the short term. Spent a lot of money over the last couple of years doing acquisitions here in Canada and also in Latin America. The next few years are really going to be a time for Scotia to digest their acquisitions and hopefully realize some synergies. He sees a challenging time for the share price while that's happening. Not in a rush to buy it.

Canadian Banks have done incredible well. He has always been concerned with the Latin America as the area is not that stable as North America and this bank has exposure to that area. In late cycle usually this bank outperforms but it is not worth the risk in his opinion. It is rather cheap-ish here. but he probably will never own it.

He thinks it is a good long term hold. They have been making acquisitions. It is extremely well run with a good focus on costs. He expects continued growth and modest dividend increases.

Likes it because it’s been unfairly punished compared to the other banks and is trading at a discount. Doesn’t think EMs are heading into a tailspin, so no reason for the strong selloff. You could add to this name. Dividends are growing.
