Has been badly beaten up recently. Has been watching it for 10 years. If Brexit happens, these are the names that will be sold at a discount and could be a good chance to snap up.

(Market Call Minute.) In 2 day’s time, you will know if it has to relocate to London. The big thing is 1) the UK government is going to be selling shares and 2) will be selling its Citizens financial US bank. After the referendum this will be a Buy, if you are comfortable with UK government selling its shares later.

Banking system took a terrible shellacking 5 years ago and is still recovering today. It’s not over yet. This one took it on the chin because it was one of the aggressive banks going into the meltdown. If you are patient enough, a rising tide lifts all boats, but when there is a lot of damage is sometimes takes them longer. You have to ask yourself is it more of an opportunity lost not to redeploy the capital and wait than it is to get into something that has a four-wheel-drive going right now. (See Top Picks.)

Probably his least favourite company. New CEO is trying to make it a smaller bank and focus the business and has a significant task in order to succeed. Impressed enough that he would take a 2nd look at this bank. It still has a very strong franchise and is potentially a good bank. When looking at the opportunities in the UK, he would rather play it through Hundles (?) Bank because they are growing by 40%.

Got hit during the global financial crisis. Ultimately the British government took a big stake in this. The UK actually went into a hole about a year after, so the UK recovery process is quite a bit behind the US. An increase in interest rates will actually increase employment for the UK. Thinks British banks in general are a little ahead of themselves. A reinstatement of a dividend would really cause these companies to move higher. A sector to watch, but valuations are a little rich right now.

UK Government just forced new CEO to give back his 1,000,000 pounds bonus, which was in stocks. European banks are not something you should be investing in.

Not sure why they have cancelled the dividend. If you're going to own a bank in the UK, you'd be better off with Lloyds (LYG-N) or Barclays (BCS-N) who have better growth prospects.

Very good assets but in a depressed market it will be hard to sell them off. If it is able to it has great retail franchises in the UK and US. Will probably have a pop in the current upbeat environment. Would sell at that point.

Will be getting capital from Bank of England. This has been a disappointing situation. The UK banking sector in general has suffered because of the poor mortgage situation. The silver lining is that it is trading at a very low multiple. Very diverse mix of business.

News came out yesterday that there were large write-downs and they were planning on issuing billions of dollars of new shares. Dividends will be in shares as opposed to cash. This will create a huge dilution effect at a time when loan loss provisions continue to rise.

Sold his holdings last summer. Trades at a ridiculous multiple of 5X earnings, below book. Think the yield will be cut. If you have a long time horizon, this is a great company. Has great franchises in the US and UK. Have done some very good things, which will help the stock out in the long run.

Sold his holdings because of the sub prime problems. Did keep his Canadian bank stocks. Banks don't know the actual risk they have on their books because it's a moving target. Difficulty is the negative momentum that is pushing bank stocks down. Wait.

Earnings just came out and were quite good given that they had huge write-downs on the sub prime mess. Their ABN Amro acquisition is going to turn out very well for them. Yielding about 6.75%. Lots of growth potential ahead of it.

Has been a Top Pick before but hasn't worked out but he is sticking with it. Just gave an outlook for their earnings and their CDO exposure and sub prime were much lower than expected. Historically has grown 15% a year. Their ADN acquisition is already ahead of expectations.

Would avoid global as well as US financials until there is some clarity as to who owns what. Could potentially be tied into subprime issues. 6.8% is a record high yield, which is an indication there is a crisis going on.
