He owns BBT-N. The company is involved in a merger with Suntrust. It is a franchised bank on the east coast where there is good economic and demographic growth. Even during the financial crisis, they managed affairs well. The US banks have been stuttering as the yield curve has become flat. He would still be a buyer here.

Longer-term downtrend broke in January and has since seen higher highs and higher lows. As long it doesn't break below its current trendline, it will be fine. Wait for an upside re-acceleration to buy.

A well run eastern seaboard bank focusing on North Carolina. In the process of buying another US SE bank -- the first merger of two major banks in the US since the financial crisis. The market likes the deal as both share prices rose on the announcement. It will become the 6th largest US bank. Yield 3.27%. (Analysts’ price target is $55.55)

This is most like a TD Bank (TD-T) in that it is an east coast regional from Florida up through New England. Very cheap relative to its US peers. It would look a little expensive on Canadian standards, trading at 13X earnings instead of 11X earnings, and a 2.8% yield instead of 4%, but would be a bigger beneficiary on higher rates. Very retail. If we get the Fed going again in December, and 1 or 2 times next year, they’ll have decent earnings growth, and there are still lots of targets of smaller regional banks for them to buy. (Analysts’ price target is $49.)

Under the Obama government, the banks preferred were the regionals because of the regulatory glare, which was much more negative, on the money centred banks.

We are seeing less regulatory glare under the Trump administration. This means we could see a lot more upside in US banks, so a little bit of money has been taken from here in the last little while. Excellent balance sheet. The payout ratio is about 50% of what it was before the global financial crisis. Thinks there is a lot of upside here.

The entire US banking sector is looking pretty good or breaking out. BBT-N is attempting to break the long term wall. If it gets above $43 for a number of days you probably have a good chance of seeing pretty good upside. So far it is developing positively. Keep a mental stop loss at about $42. If it stays below that for a couple of days then sell it.

(A Top Pick Oct 1/15. Up 13.93%.) This is a super regional bank out of North Carolina. Most of its operations are on the US East Coast, but have bought some banks inland as well. A superbly managed bank, mostly retail. A big beneficiary of a rising yield curve, so when rates do go up in the US, it will be a big beneficiary. Dividend yield of 3.1%.
