  1. Hi, Roadmap2Retire.
    Good analysis on BMO. I have some experience with BMO as I am a personal customer. They appear to have their act together and are well diversified around the globe; however, the recent weak stock performance of all Canadian banks (and lack of snap back) is somewhat concerning. I hope it is only temporary as I hold a chunk of BNS shares. I blindly bought shares of SAN & BBVA three years ago during a period of extreme weakness in Europe. While extremely hard to value, they’ve performed pretty well for me over the years and they have fat dividends (for now). Take care.

    • Gooseman,
      Thanks for stopping by and the comment regarding your experience with BMO. I’ve had a lot of friends who deal a lot with BMO and have always had great things to say about it. I havent dealt with them myself, but I imagine if they have been in business for close to 200 years, they must be doing something right.
      Your blog is new to me and I will be sure to check it out.
