  1. Ah, the Canadian banks. What can on say about a company that had already had 15 years of dividend payments under their belts before the events of “Back To The Future: Part 3” happened. Maybe Marty should have bought some TD stock before meeting up with Doc.

    Like with the TD article, I’m curious if you’re calculating the fair value of the Canadian shares or the US shares. Because the fair value you got is about $20 more than tabs current price of RY on the NYSE, yet you refer to it as “overvalued”. It’s about the same discrepancy ($20/share) that the TDstock had.

    Thanks for the great evaluations. This Angry Retail Banker always appreciates bank stock valuations.

    Sincerely,
    ARB–Angry Retail Banker
