DON'T BUY
Not time to be aggressive. Lot of risks for a name like this and Canadian banks, and investors need to pay attention. Mortgage portfolios are expanding, housing prices are up 30-40%, and this is a lot of risk in an economy that's slowing.

(A Top Pick Nov 18/20, Up 42%) He bought it at its long-term low, yet remains inexpensive in terms of valuation. It restored the dividend they had cut.

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly LB is trading at 11x earnings, compared to peers at 23x. With good growth prospects, its PEG ratio is 0.8 and it trades just under its book value. It has a great dividend, backed by a payout ratio estimated at 43 of cashflow. We would buy this with a stop loss at $38, looking to achieve $46. Yield 3.77% (Analysts’ price target is $44.70)
banks
DON'T BUY

He prefers BMO among Canadian banks, which all have a good future. He doubts LB will grow like the other banks. Loan growth business is a worry. He doesn't see many catalysts for LB. If you hold this, at least you collect their dividend.

banks
DON'T BUY

Has traded up quite nicely, so this is not a good entry point. Being from western Canada, the regional bank he prefers is CWB. In Canada, we have lots of choices on banks, and the regional ones are always a trade. His large cap favourites are RY, TD, and BNS.

banks
TOP PICK
He owns this for income. This is THE turnaround play in Canadian banking. It has a new female CEO of colour, so kudos to them. He expects her to close the productivity gap in core deposit and lending, building out the fledgling securities business and diversifying beyond Quebec. If she succeeds, the stock will turnaround. It's rate a Canadian bank install an outsider, but it speaks to their need for change. (Analysts’ price target is $40.90)
banks
DON'T BUY
An outlier in Canadian banking, a small regional player. They're cleaning house among management and trimming costs, but that's tricky because they're hemmed into one region, Quebec. LB is trying to go entirely virtual; LB has a lot of physical branches and moving hard to virtual. This dramatic change has effected their business. New managers will have to face these challenges. Unsure if LB can grow earnings; has limited growth prospects. They have lowered costs and stabilized business. Not his preferred bank stock.
banks
DON'T BUY
Other banks have better potential. LB is undergoing a big shift with a new CEO and strategy. So far, the market likes what it sees. Long term. LB could be a contender. That said, he prefers other banks.
banks
DON'T BUY
The dividend is probably safe. The Canadian and US banks are so cheap and out of favour that there is a lot of value to be had, but the discount on this one is not that substantial.
banks
DON'T BUY
Stock is cheap, but whether it represents value is another question. There are safer and better ways to get a 5% yield, with the prospect of growing it. Small, weak, poorly operated, regional play.
banks
TOP PICK
Thoroughly beaten up. Selling at beautiful discount to book value. Expecting rising earnings from banks in general as reserve requirements end. Hypervalue stock compared to the rest of the banks, so it has more leverage in a recovery. Decent dividend. Yield is 5.20%. (Analysts’ price target is $29.67)
banks
DON'T BUY
It is the only unionized bank in North America. That is why it remains independent. They will struggle to get scale and as a result they have cut the dividend. There are better opportunities out there.
banks
WEAK BUY
You have to question everything including the possibility of anyone cutting the dividend back. He thinks they will come through this and thrive. He would look at buying a basket of the larger banks for the security of more diversified operations.
banks
DON'T BUY
Challenged, as it's a smaller bank and has to compete with the larger ones. Transition period right now. In the short-term, deposits are flat and loan books are down. Instead, look at the other six. Payout ratio is as high as it can go. Yield is 6%.
banks
DON'T BUY

It was the cheapest bank out there, but other banks' valuations have come down, so LB isn't as cheap anymore. LB can't expand; they don't have a national footprint. He doesn't own banks now, but would rank LB down the list. TD is his choice in this sector.
