He's long owned it. The regional U.S. bank space has been under pressure. U.S. growth will be challenged going ahead. COLB is down 20% YTD, though the dividend is safe and the company has a good balance sheet. The stock is neither cheap or pricey now. How much overall exposure do you have to U.S. financials? Consider that. It should be lower than in past years.

A regional bank. Over the next year, with the confidence the US consumer is going to get with Wall Street Reform and tax reform, this is a name that tends to benefit. Located in a more affluent geography, in the Pacific Northwest, where there is growth in terms of jobs and income. Trading at around 20X. Dividend yield of 1.9%. (Analysts’ price target is $46.)
