  1. IP -

    Nice job over there! Have to love CM, right? Imperial's dividend is really nice, though, and I am hopefully there is another dividend increase soon : )


    1. Lanny,

      Thanks for dropping by. I certainly have no issues holding CM. CM and 3 of the other big banks in Canada raise their dividend twice a year. If history repeats its, CM will have to pay another dividend before raising it.

      Why complain about the banks make so much profit, when you can own a slice of the banks and get a piece of the profit.
