Last week, RBC started the Bank earning season with a boom and we are expecting more good news to come from banks for this quarter. I’ve pulled out some interesting metrics from the “Big 6″. Here they are:

I’ve written a piece on Canadian Banks two weeks ago. I’m sticking with National Bank (NA) and ScotiaBank (BNS). I bet is that National Bank will increase its dividend for a second time this year… what do you think?

I think TD is by far the best bank to own. I’ve held it for more than a decade through thick and thin. It has the best dividend growth and I like their activities in the US. Most years, it wins best customer service! Over the years, I think it has had the best management. My number two would be RY. It does most things well, and it’s big.

TD has been awesome for the past decade and it was definitely a good pick :-). I’m curious to see how they can handle a mortgage slowdown in the Toronto area though. That is my only concern so far.

Hi Mike! I always look forward to the TSX60 list. I like to see where my holdings are standing and how potential candidates are doing. For instance, COS seems interesting. The yield is good and the payout ratio appears reasonable. What do you think?
