    Bought Oct. 29th 2008, held, and dripped this since the financial crisis. With time, a market crash is not feared but looked as an opportunity to get Drip shares on sale. Just another pillar in my dividend growth retirement portfolio. GLTA
    Buy, hold, drip. It ain't complicated. The rest is just noise.

    No dividend hike, slow move to increase mortgages in Canada = what or who is the world is this new money going to?? I now the Canadian government robs the people by taxation, what is happening here with the bank situation?

    Anyone here with Scotia iTrade? I am. I have heard of others having success getting free trades with their brokerages after threatening to leave to National Bank for their commission-free trading. When I alluded to the fact I was considering leaving iTrade, they replied with “account transfers are a common thing that happens all the time.” Lol.

    If I sell on Monday will I still get my dividend?

    BNS book value is$56. In 2008 book value was $18.60 and it traded as high as $50. Things get going this could see SP of $150.

    …anyone having difficulties wading thru current election promises? Bank stocks have been elastic since Trudeau announced his great monetary policy: let banks and insurance companies pay the bill! Was looking forward to dividend increases from BNS, & CM next year … now? Looks like the Liberals want our dividends too…any thoughts and or opinions before tomorrow’s election appreciated!! Cheers from Kelowna BC 🇨🇦

    This stock doesn’t like 80s for some reason. Every time it hits 80.5-81, it retracts to 77-78.

    Transferred my Canadian portfolio out of iTrade. They basically just replied with "we're keeping an eye on the situation and are sad to see you go." Zero-commissions, come on! Let's get a move on.

    I bought both BMO and BNS during pandemic at 70 and 54 respectively. I’m debating selling BMO and loading into BNS to increase share count and divi. Love the stock for reasons many have stated in this chat and anticipating rise in SP. what y’all think? Bullish on bank stocks in general but feel like no need for both in tfsa

    Finally bought some after selling BMO for a small gain. Can't wait to get paid on Friday and buy more BNS

    Great dividend, Great Everything!

    Also the only bank to announce "share buybacks and dividend increase once the Canadian government allows us". Which I LIKE. I LOVE the "here is what we are going to do" this is from an old article (Think it was from June or July with an interview).

    Overall I'm happy to be here and more happy to of finally started a position at $78.12 :D

    The Bank has so much excess profit and therefore a lot of over capitalization that the small taxes to be levied by the recent Govt is really minor and won’t have much affect on the stock dividends and buybacks or acquisitions

    Got in; switched from BMO.
    No brainer - better divi; better PE; more institutional holders; better ROA; better ROE; better beta.
    Let’s hope the financials are still in trend for next ~6 months+
    All the best to longs
