ROE has perennially been very low around 6%-7%. Also they do one dilutive financing after another.

There are about 30 small financial companies that are fantastic. This is not one of them. 10-year track record on Return on Capital has been terrible. Would prefer Canadian Western Bank (CWB-T) or Home Capital (HCG-T).

Have a chain of insurance agencies through the West. Also have life insurance and general insurance companies as well as a small bank, which has been holding them back. Expecting a solution of this in the next year. Reported earnings today that were in line with expectations.

Not a big fan of this one. Not as focused on ROE as Canadian Western Bank (CWB-T) only 100 miles north.

Not a big fan of this one. His key metric is return on equity or return on capital. This one doesn't have a great track record of earning good returns on capital. Strategy tends to be all over the map.

Likes this one quite a bit. Stock price has come off because of the general slowdown in the economy and the other financial stocks. The bank they started a few years ago was a drag on earnings, but is no longer. Their insurance company is profitable. Continuing to expand their agency network throughout the west. Well positioned. Just shored up their balance sheet with another convertible preferred about a month ago. 6.7% yield.

Likes this stock very much. Starting to get coverage from the larger firms now. Western Bank is no longer a drag on their earnings. Western Life is making money for them and still has opportunities to expand their agency network. Prefers to buy under $5.

In a good uptrend that goes in stages. Sharp and then correction again and again. Doesn’t trade a lot of volume.

TOP PICK
A very well run western-based financial group. Owns a lot of insurance agencies, primarily in Alberta. Tend to be in smaller centres. Expect earnings could come in around $.20 and should expand as their bank begins to contribute more.

Likes the company, where it is situated, business strategy and the management. However, the Canadian national banks are an awfully rough group to compete with. Buy carefully on the dips.

Trades at a premium to BV, but not that huge for a financial stock. Owns a lot of insurance agencies in rural western provinces. Also operates Western Life Insurance and a small bank that they just got a charter for. Good price.
