I have had BMO (TSX-BMO) since 1983. I have had this stock for approximately 27 years and I am making some 19% return in dividend payments each year on my preliminary investment. This may noises good, but my Royal Bank or investment company stock did far better where after buying it for some 15 years, I am making some 27.5% on my original investment.

Some of this, of course, is eaten away by inflation over the years. This bank has a good record of dividend increases. The growth in dividends within the last 5 and a decade is at the speed of 8.6% per year and 10.8% per yr, respectively. However, like all our Canadian Banks, this bank has not raised their dividend since 2008. Analysts also think that the first raises in dividends are going to come from TD Bank or investment company or Bank or investment company of Nova Scotia. Nobody mentions BMO as a bank or investment company to raise the dividends first. This bank or investment company, as all Canadian Banks have suffered in this last recession.

However, if you had committed to this bank or investment company 5 years ago, you’ll have made a 3 or 4% altogether returns every year. The dividend income would have added around 4 to 4.5% per 12 months to this total return. Which means that stock price is not still, where it ago was 5 years. The total returns within the last 10 years would have been far better coming in at 10 to 12% in total returns with the dividend accounting for around 4.5% of this total come back.

Most of the growth rates because of this stock range between low to mediocre within the last 5 and a decade. The development for earnings within the last 5 and 10 years has been .5% (that is less than 1%) per calendar year to 3.8% per yr, respectively. This is not good. The very best development after dividend growth is book value growth and this has been, over the past 5 and 10 years at around 5% per year. Unfortunately, because of the lack of growth in cash and cash flow stream, the payout ratios of dividends to profits and cash flow has sometimes been probably too much over the past couple of years.

Their Asset/Liability ratios have been on average around 1.05 for days gone by 5 and a decade, with the current A/L Ratio around 1.06. These ratios are typical for banks rather. I have done well over the years with this bank, but other Canadian Banks have performed better. Tomorrow, I will look at what the analysts are saying about this bank or investment company.
