He has paired back European banks. He likes ING in isolation. He moved to North American banks. ING-N's problems stem from EU problems in the countries not getting along. Look at other banks that have a sustainable dividend that can grow. You need to get yield if you are in banks.

ING is one of Europe's strongest banks that will remain profitable. Solid balance sheet. All Euro banks suspended dividends. ING had a light payout ratio. After this crisis, the dividends should return. Hang on and ride this out.

Narrative on banks generally is a poor one, because interest rate margins are coming down. Problematic for European banks. If you have a long-term view of 4-5 years, you may want to look at insurers.

After the 2008 crisis, they sold off a lot of assets, including insurance, banking and other areas. Mortgages can be 30 years in Europe and the margins are very weak. Further interest rate cuts there could make it even more challenging. He thinks there are betting opportunities.

ING was very large, prior to the global banking crisis. Now they have reduced quite a lot. The most interesting part of the Dutch banking market is the 30-year mortgage. This means there will be a challenge for Dutch banks to grow earnings due to money being locked in. It is a great bank and earnings will work. The dividend is attractive and he would hold. Yield of 6.5%.

ING vs. HSBC Banking has a had a tough year, especially in Europe with negative interest rates. The Euro economy hurts the banks. HSBC has an Asian franchise, which is a plus. ING has become much more of a retail bank with a good ROE. They trade at below book value and pay reasonable dividends, but you will do well only with a long-term horizon. Their cost structures look much better now.

Continue to hold? The challenge is the negative interest rates in Europe. Globally banks have turned into utilities. He does not expect the negative interest rates to last -- you can't continue to pay people to have a mortgage. The bank has a good balance sheet. You may look to put more money in here to average down -- especially with the Euro being so weak. A good hold longer term.

It's now-smaller company. A good, well-positioned bank, but his concern with the Dutch market are 30-year mortages they offer. So, it's tought for a bank to make money if it takes 30 years to roll-over a mortgage. Near-term this will be fine, because interest rates will be flat. However, there are better European opportunities.

Dutch banking company, they were a very large bank and insurance company, they owned ING Direct here before they had to spin it all out because of financial issues. Banking business has been restructured and thinks it's a great opportunity. The general environment in Europe has been difficult for banks. Very well run business. Buying it around these levels you should do well over the next several years. Not an insurance business anymore.

An horrendous chart. One challenge for ING is that in Holland you can get a 30-year mortgage. So, how do you increase net interest margins for banks when mortgage don't re-rate for 25 years or so? Their footprint is much smaller these days, too, after they sold off their insurance business. Other European banks offer more upside and better balance sheets, like HSBC and Santander.
