Canadian Banks Getting Hammered in the Bear, Nov. 21, 2008
The Canadian Financial sector is taking a big hit during this Bear Market and it doesn't look like it is over. So far the TSX Financial Index has corrected back about the last 5 years of increases. A dividend mutual fund, one that includes Canadian Banks has only lost about 4 years of gains. Perhaps the dividends are helping to keep the value higher than the index. Definitely on sale today but my analysis suggests prices will continue lower, at least in the short term. I'm not buying any yet.
