Drama. The conservatively managed Perpetual Bond™ in the eight Canadian banks has returned +82% so far this year and another 3.7% in dividends. Even the Perpetual Bond™ on an all cash basis has returned +21% and the “Everyman Bond” (sic) which just owns them all, all of the time, is up +15% this year (plus dividends). Please see Exhibit 2 and 3 below.

The Canadian banks have also returned a remarkable +14.8% return on the shareholders equity which doubles the worldwide average of 7.3% for five hundred of the world’s top banks and of which they gave half back for a dividend payout of $14.1 billion (Reuters, November 6, 2013, Returns fall as banks struggle to rein in costs”report). Please see Exhibit 1 below.

Since we’ve updated our stop/losses and bought some puts out of profits, all we can really hope for now is that some of the banks miss the “analyst average earnings expectations” and create some new buying opportunities for us at lower prices. Oh well. What’s a girl to do?
