PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Oct 28/21, Down 22%) The thesis has yet to work out. New CEO is making changes. A good piece for a larger bank or insurer to take out. Stock's cheap, good upside potential. Happy to hold as a turnaround story.

DON'T BUY
Fallen off from a technical perspective. He focuses on the top 5 banks. Yield is 5.4%, but it's come down over the last 5 years, which is not what you'd expect from Canadian banks. Negative dividend growth. Steer away.

BUY
Earl: Management change. Digital cost control, great footprint in Quebec. Under the radar for years. Transformational plans.

DON'T BUY
LB vs. CWB He'd buy neither right now. Financials are not necessarily what you want going into a recession. Credit losses can sting. Regional banks are not as well diversified as the bigger banks. No wealth management. CWB is more exposed to commercial and industrial loans, so losses can be greater. CWB edges out LB by a hair.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick May 04/21, Down 5%) Lagged the other banks. New CEO. Small, regional. Value play among the banks. For an income-oriented portfolio mandate, rather than a total return mandate.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Oct 21/21, Down 7.1%)Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly Our PAST TOP PICK with LB has triggered its stop at $38. To remain disciplined, we recommend covering the position at this time. Combined with our previous buy recommendation, this will result in a net investment loss of 9%. We will look for better opportunities.

PAST TOP PICK
(A Top Pick Nov 18/20, Up 39%) Whole outlook for banks in Canada is very positive. Covid reserves are not needed, and they get moved back into earnings. Cheap stock and possibly profound dividend potential when allowed.
banks
TOP PICK
Likes all the Big 5 banks, as they all have room to grow in price to book plus dividends. LB remains the cheap outlier. Buy an ETF, or buy this one if you want something really cheap. Yield is 3.88%. (Analysts’ price target is $46.36)

TOP PICK
Stockchase Research Editor: Michael O'Reilly We reiterate LB as a TOP PICK. It trades good value here at 10x earnings. It has a great dividend, backed by a payout ratio estimated at 38% of cashflow. With fewer loan defaults relative to capitalizations, the Canadian banking sector is due to see dividends increased when allowed to do so. We would buy this with a stop loss at $38, looking to achieve $46 -- upside potential over 12%. Yield 3.77% (Analysts’ price target is $46.30)
banks
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.

PAST TOP PICK
(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)

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.

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)
