The US banks have underperformed, and are a canary in the coalmine for the larger market. That said, there's support for Citigroup (earnings, international exposure, etc.) and the banks benefit from rising interest rates. Their valuation and re-structuring all work, all good. This is one of the better US banks.

Doesn't see a turnaround. It's suffering from the migration of people watching movies at home. So has Cineplex. Valuation is okay, but he can't warm up to it. Viewing habits have changed dramatically.

Rich valuation. They dominate ETFs and have capitalized on the rise of these products. He'd like to see how the ETF world survives in a downturn. Massive withdraws? He's in a show-me mode. Will owners panic and dump ETFs in a downturn? Do they know what these products hold?
