    By Michael Weber - July 17, 2013 | Tickers: BMO, CM, BNS

    Today, I’ll be reviewing The Bank of Nova Scotia (NYSE: BNS) as part of my Great Canadian Banking Series. In this 10-part series, I will examine the Canadian Banking Sector to identify good dividend growth candidates.

  • Thinking About Buying a Bank? Consider Canada

    By Ryan Palmer - July 9, 2013 | Tickers: CM, RY, TD

    When American investors consider buying stock of a bank, the first ones that usually come to mind are the dominant forces in American banking. Banks like Wells Fargo, Bank of America, and JPMorgan Chase come to mind. But I strongly feel it would be wise for investors to consider one from the Great White North.

  • Moody’s Downgrade of the Canadian Banks: Should Investors be Worried?

    By Ashit Gulati - July 9, 2013 | Tickers: CM, BNS, TD

    My coverage on the Canadian banking sector continues. In this brief analysis I will examine if the downgrade by Moody's should be a major concern for potential investors.

    Moody’s recently downgraded six of Canada’s largest banks primarily due to high levels of consumer debt and elevated housing prices, which forces a potential downside risk on the Canadian economy.

    Irrespective of the downgrade, several Wall Street experts and more »

  • Shoppers Choose Apps over People

    By Phillip Woolgar - June 27, 2013 | Tickers: CM, GPS, SWY

    More shoppers are using their mobile devices to research prices and products before making a purchase, Google reported on June 12. In fact, many people prefer consulting their smartphones and tablets rather than a person. What companies are taking advantage of this shopping trend?

  • Canadian Banks Have a Lot to Offer Investors

    By Bob Ciura - May 22, 2013 | Tickers: BMO, CM, RY, BNS

    Investing in big banks is a conversation usually confined to the biggest bulge-bracket banks in the United States. The resurgence of our nation’s financial institutions since the dark days of the recent financial crisis has been well-documented throughout the media. Indeed, there are many American banks that have shown renewed signs of life as the economy in the United States continues its gradual recovery and consumer lending levels begin more »

  • Why I Like Canadian Bank Stocks

    By Jody Kohut - April 27, 2013 | Tickers: BAC, BMO, CM, NA, RY, BNS, TD, WFC

    In the search for stability and yield many core holdings include financials – in particular bank stocks. I personally like some of the Canadian banks at the moment. I know I’m not the only person to have suggested Canadian banks as an investment. I remember reading an article some time ago about someone recommending CIBC. Then he referred to the acronym as standing for the Canadian Imperial Bank of Communication more »

  • The Investor's Guide to Picking Canadian Bank Stocks

    By Robert Baillieul - March 15, 2013 | Tickers: BMO, CM, RY, BNS, TD | Editor's Choice

    It's a challenge to pick among Canada's apparently identical Big-5 banks. In investment circles, most discussion is centered on which stock is the cheapest. But with each company pursuing diverging strategies, investors should base their decision on their own thesis.

    Thesis: With the worst of the financial crisis behind us, the global investment banking industry is poised for a rebound.

    In the same way as our “5 Dividend Stocks for the Next 5 Years” series, we have identified five high-dividend paying financial stocks that we believe can provide stable income amid a tough economic backdrop, and during a time when financials have underperformed the broader market.

  • Look To Canadian Banks, Not JPMorgan, For Stability

    By Maxwell Fisher - August 28, 2012 | Tickers: BMO, CM, JPM, WFC

    The beat goes on for JPMorgan Chase (NYSE: JPM). It is painful to look at the statements that were made by management last spring and contrast that with the developing reality of now. That is exactly what I am going to do here.

    For a reference point, let’s look at CEO Jamie Dimon's spring letter to shareholders. On Page 4, Dimon wrote “the best way to build shareholder more »

  • The Safe Haven of Canadian Banks

    By Alex Thorburn-Winsor - May 2, 2012 | Tickers: CM, RY, BNS, TD

    In times of financial uncertainty, it's best to look for safe, proven companies. Companies like the Canadian Big Five Banks. Collectively, Canada has the soundest banks in the world and have higher market implied ratings than any other country according to a recent Moody's report.

  • Are Canadian Banks a Better Investment?

    By Maxwell Fisher - March 26, 2012 | Tickers: BMO, CM, USB, WFC

    Today, I am going to do an “apples to apples” comparison of earnings quality between two large Canadian banks, and two large, successful American banks. In most cases, comparing an internationally sound bank to either Bank of America or Citigroup is going to make the American banks are going to look bad. But if comparisons are made with two well respected banks like Wells Fargo (NYSE: WFC) and U.S more »
